A quick post addressing the recent death of PM Ariel Sharon and the prophecies of R. Itzhak Kaduri… More later.
In the coming days you will hear a great deal about the Kaduri prophecy of the soon return of Messiah after the passing of Ariel Sharon. While I absolutely believe we are in incredibly rare air, prophetically speaking, we must be very cautious not to be caught in the hoopla that is going to be created.
Kaduri had some VERY interesting things to say, but he also spoke of the Messiah being on the earth already and would be one who worked through the media and had no political or military ambitions. Those comments, covered in detail by Carl Gallups in his book, The Rabbi Who Found Messiah, immediately send up a red flag as my Bible says He will be seen by every eye at His coming, He will rule from Zion and do so with a rod of iron…. all being direct opposition to some of Kaduri’s comments. (Confirmed in comments below.)
We do need to be very alert for a FALSE messiah at this time because the nations are desiring relief and the world is reeling under the shaking of Yahweh’s anger.
Understand VERY CLEARLY, there is NO rapture. There is NO escape from the Tribulation. The Body of Messiah WILL go through it. I will assemble Scriptural support in the near future. The quick answer is that Noah was ON the earth for the judgment by water. He was protected and preserved by Yah, but he was not taken away. Israel was IN Egypt when Yahweh judged by plagues and threw the Pharaoh into the lake of water (Red Sea), a picture of the antiMessiah being thrown into the Lake of fire.
Understand! NO escapism. That is completely unBiblical.
Also understand, prophecy in Scripture cannot be understood outside of a very good understanding of the Torah. I say that in love, but as a student of prophecy, going back 30 years, I have learned and understood more in the last two years than in the previous years combined. If you wandered in here from outside, I highly recommend you take a very hard look at understanding the Scriptures through the Hebraic mindset of those to whom Yahweh spoke.
In the coming days, I will also share some of my current thoughts on the timing of things to come, but it is, as all such ponderings are, somewhat speculative.
For the time being, I would advise being aware and awake, but very cautious with the craziness that will surround the death of PM Ariel Sharon and the prophecies of the late Rabbi Kaduri.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sharon family and their recent loss.
