An orthodox rabbi who practiced Kabbalah, Yitzhak Kaduri, died in February 2006. He told those around him that he has met the messiah and he is in Isreal. He is in a man and he may not even know he's the messiah. (Red flags going up yet?) He said the messiah will be revealed after Ariel Sharon died... which happened just days ago. (Sharon was in a coma for 8 years after a death curse or "pulsa dinura" was placed on him by right-wing Kabbalists who were upset that he gave some land over to Palestinians. You can see the actual cursing video here. There was a death curse placed on Kaduri also on July 23, 2005. But to be fair the man 108 years old! How much longer did he really have? But Sharon fell into a coma days after the curse.)
Kaduri wrote a letter to be opened a year after his death. (What's with all the secrecy and mystery? Did this rabbi think he was a character in the Da Vinci Code or something? Why not come out and declare it rather than concealing and working in the dark?) So a year after his death, the letter is opened, revealing the name of the messiah is Yeshua (Jesus as we call him in the States). Of course many Jews were outraged. They do not believe Jesus is messiah but this most highly respected, famous rabbi is telling them that he is. Fraud, they cry. Impossible!
This is what Kaduri said on Yom Kippur (I bolded important phrases for emphasis):
It is hard for many good people in society to understand the person of the Messiah. The leadership and order of a Messiah of flesh and blood is hard to accept for many in the nation. As leader, the Messiah will not hold any office, but will be among the people and use the media to communicate. His reign will be pure and without personal or political desire. During his dominion, only righteousness and truth will reign. Will all believe in the Messiah right away? No, in the beginning some of us will believe in him and some not. It will be easier for non-religious people to follow the Messiah than for Orthodox people. The revelation of the Messiah will be fulfilled in two stages: First, he will actively confirm his position as Messiah without knowing himself that he is the Messiah. Then he will reveal himself to some Jews, not necessarily to wise Torah scholars. It can be even simple people. Only then he will reveal himself to the whole nation. The people will wonder and say: ‘What, that’s the Messiah?’ Many have known his name but have not believed that he is the Messiah.
But is this really Jesus, the Christ? King of kings? Lord of lords?
I say... NO WAY. It can't possibly be. Why? Well, Kaduri stated that this messiah that he has encountered will not be believed by everyone. Many will not be sure if he is Jesus. This should tell you right away, it's not Jesus/Yeshua. The Bible is pretty clear that there will be NO DOUBT when Jesus returns. So what the heck is Kaduri talking about? Is this the antichrist (I know there are many but there is a MAN of PERDITION). his descriptions of the messiah fits more with an antichrist figure, which would make him a false prophet. Does that really surprise you though? He was an occultist who frequently spoke to demons thinking he could control them. Here's another tidbit about another respected rabbi (Schneerson) who is also clearly a false prophet (so many of them!):
Back in 2005, Rabbi Kaduri said that the great Rabbi Schneerson (he also has since died) told him that Kaduri would live to see the coming of the Messiah. He said that the current government of Israel would be the last one of the old era. Sharon would the last PM. The new leadership would be that of the Messianic era.One false prophet rabbi after another!
Well, Schneerson was obviously incorrect and must therefore have been a false prophet. (source)
Kaduri also stated that the messiah will use the media to speak to the people. That's not what the Bible says. Does Jesus' feet ever touch the ground when he returns? He will be in the clouds. Not on your flat-screen television. (Assuming the Bible we have to go on is correct.)
There are many mini-false prophets on the internet who refuse to use any discernment whatsoever. Just look at Utube and all the semi-famous date setters (eternalrhythmflow, Paul Begley, etc.) They say, "I'm not setting dates but April 2014 (insert any time period) looks really good for (the rapture, second coming, any other end time event)!" But of course they are never correct and simply keep changing the dates. They are playing a guessing game and have wasted their entire adult lives sitting around waiting for a rapture to happen. If there is a Judgement day, those people will have to answer for leading many astray and setting dates. No man knows.... unless you're on Utube, I guess.
What do I think of all this? I think the King James Bible as we know it today is a farce, a political propaganda tool which is still being used very effectively. That doesn't mean what it says will happen wont (or hasn't already happened) but I'm saying it all feels like a set-up to me. I really have a sneaking suspicion that unfriendly ETs are behind the Bible and the major world religions, which have caused millions if not billions of deaths and so much misery worldwide. And we're being set-up for something. I just don't want to fall into the wrong hands!
My views have changed (evolved) quite a bit in the past year. People might call me fickle. But I think it is pure stupidity to hold the same beliefs from cradle to grave. If you are really studying, your beliefs will morph somewhat. Maybe not drastically but as you learn more, you will have to take everything into consideration and see what makes the most sense.
"At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." Matthew 24:23-25
