**Rabbi Kaduri, Ariel Sharon, and the Messiah
As of Jan 3, 2014 there is much talk in the news about a former Prime Minister of Israel on his death bed- Ariel Sharon. 8 years ago to this month (4 Jan 2006) Sharon suffered a stroke and has been in a coma ever since. A significant connection with Sharon and a well known Rabbi- Rabbi Kaduri has been circulating since the 1 year anniversary of Kaduri’s death on 28 Jan 2006:
A few months before Kaduri died at the age of 108, he surprised his followers when he told them that he met the Messiah. Kaduri gave a message in his synagogue on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, teaching how to recognize the Messiah. He also mentioned that the Messiah would appear to Israel after Ariel Sharon’s death. (Israel Today article)
With this coming Passover (15 April 2014) starting the blood moon tetrad pattern that has been noticed 7 times previous since the time of Jesus, things are seemingly very interesting as far as prophecy is concerned and end of the church age. What is interesting about this next blood moon tetrad is that it is the eighth time this pattern has fallen on the Biblical feast days.
The number 8 in Jewish meaning represents a new beginning or new era. **(After reading Mark Biltz book- Blood Moons, there is actually another Appointed times tetrad- 1428-29, which puts this current one at the 9th Appointed times tetrad since 1CE. The number 9 represents that of judgment and finality- interesting times for sure!)
As one who watches and is generally a listener, I have to take a step back and look at the bigger picture and ask some tough faith questions- Do I really believe that Jesus is coming back again, and if so, would the generation know about it? Matthew 24 is a great place to start to answer some of these questions.
So back to Sharon, Rabbi Kaduri and Jesus- these things are all very interesting, though extrabiblical, very intriguing to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see. Do I believe that Jesus could have appeared to an Orthodox Rabbi who did not believe that He was the Messiah? Yes- Case in point- Paul on the road to Damascus, it has already happened before! Do I believe that God can do whatever He wants, when and how He wants to- doesn’t matter if I believe it or not God is God and what His will is… it will be done.
