See how there is hope for anybody, no matter what race you belong to. Remember Jesus was born a Judean in Bethlehem of Judah from Judean parents, although he was raised in Galilee. All that poppycock, that Jesus was not a Judean, is just that! Nonsense! The Son of God was born a Jew, so that Jews are without excuse! God knows what it’s like and what it feels like to be a Jew! The good, the bad and the ugly. He understands! So there is hope for Jews to be saved.Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri saw Jesus the Messiah!
Don’t get me wrong! Contemporary Jews are not the “chosen people” anymore by physical birth! Jesus said that now we all have to be born spiritually into the Kingdom of God, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” (St.John 3:5)
He also told his nation’s contemporaries, “Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. ” (Mat 21:43)
That nation is the international nation of God’s children worldwide, who will be raised immortally at the second coming of Christ.
Messianic Rabbi shares how he accepted Yeshua as Messiah
After a dramatic vision, a Jewish man studied the Bible for many years as great literature, then finally accepted that Yeshua (Jesus) really is the Messiah of Israel. He became a new and better person, but then realized that his Jewish identity is still very important to God!
Glenn Blank is now a professor of Comoputer Science as well as the Messianic Rabbi of Beit Simcha (www.beitsimcha.org) in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The clip is from a TV show, The Living Truth, hosted by Pastor Larry Burd, on WBPH 60 in Bethlehem, PA.
Famous Rabbi Kaduri Believed in Yeshua as the Messiah
You know even a very famous and revered rabbi, , came to the conclusion that Jesus was actually the Messiah! He was not prepared to break the news while he was still alive, so he wrote it down on paper only to be released as soon as he passed on to Heaven. Because he was undoubtedly saved, as Jesus said to the Pharisees, “If you do not believe that I am HE, you will die in your sins!” The opposite is true as well, “If you DO believe that I am HE, you will NOT die in your sins!”
Shortly before he died, one of Israel’s most prominent rabbis wrote the name of the Messiah on a small note which he requested would remain sealed until one year after his death. Yitzhak Kaduri described the Messiah using six words and hinting that the initial letters form the name of the Messiah. The secret note said:
Concerning the letter abbreviation of the Messiah’s name, He will lift the people and prove that his word and law are valid.
This I have signed in the month of mercy,
The Hebrew sentence with the hidden name of the Messiah reads: Yarim Ha’Am Veyokhiakh Shedvaro Vetorato Omdim
The initials spell the Hebrew name of Jesus, Yehoshua. Yehoshua and Yeshua are effectively the same name, derived from the same Hebrew root of the word “salvation” as documented in Zechariah 6:11 and Ezra 3:2. The same priest writes in Ezra, “Yeshua son of Yozadak” while writing in Zechariah “Yehoshua son of Yohozadak.” The priest adds the holy abbreviation of God’s name, ho, in the father’s name Yozadak and in the name Yeshua.
With one of Israel’s most prominent rabbis indicating the name of the Messiah is Yeshua, it is understandable why his last wish was to wait one year after his death before revealing what he wrote.
When the name of Yehoshua appeared in Kaduri’s message, ultra-Orthodox Jews from his Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva (seminary) in Jerusalem argued that their master did not leave the exact solution for decoding the Messiah’s name.
The revelation received scant coverage in the Israeli media. Only the Hebrew websites News First Class (Nfc) and Kaduri.net mentioned the Messiah note, insisting it was authentic. The Hebrew daily Ma’ariv ran a story on the note but described it as a forgery.
Jewish readers responded on the websites’ forums with mixed feelings: “So this means Rabbi Kaduri was a Christian?” and “The Christians are dancing and celebrating,” were among the comments.
Israel Today spoke to two of Kaduri’s followers in Jerusalem who admitted that the note was authentic, but confusing for his followers as well. “We have no idea how the Rabbi got to this name of the Messiah,” one of them said.
Yet others completely deny any possibility that the note is authentic. Kaduri’s son, Rabbi David Kaduri, said that at the time the note was written (September 2005), his father’s physical condition made it impossible for him to write.
KADURI’S PORTRAYAL OF THE MESSIAH
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. (The former prime minister is still in a coma after suffering a massive stroke more than a year ago.)
Other rabbis predict the same, including Rabbi Haim Cohen, kabbalist Nir Ben Artzi and the wife of Rabbi Haim Kneiveskzy.
Kaduri’s grandson, Rabbi Yosef Kaduri, said his grandfather spoke many times during his last days about the coming of the Messiah and redemption through the Messiah.
His spiritual portrayals of the Messiah—reminiscent of New Testament accounts—were published on the websites Kaduri.net and Nfc: … Quote:
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.
FAREWELL TO A ‘TSADIK’
Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri was known for his photographic memory and his memorization of the Bible, the Talmud, Rashi and other Jewish writings. He knew Jewish sages and celebrities of the last century and rabbis who lived in the Holy Land and kept the faith alive before the State of Israel was born.
Kaduri was not only highly esteemed because of his age of 108. He was charismatic and wise, and chief rabbis looked up to him as a Tsadik, a righteous man or saint. He would give advice and blessings to everyone who asked. Thousands visited him to ask for counsel or healing. His followers speak of many miracles and his students say that he predicted many disasters.
When he died, more than 200,000 people joined the funeral procession on the streets of Jerusalem to pay their respects as he was taken to his final resting place.
“When he comes, the Messiah will rescue Jerusalem from foreign religions that want to rule the city,” Kaduri once said. “They will not succeed for they will fight against one another.”
THE RABBI’S FOLLOWERS REACT
In an interview with Israel Today, Rabbi David Kaduri, the 80-year-old son of the late Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, denied that his father left a note with the name Yeshua just before he died.
“It’s not his writing,” he said when we showed him a copy of the note.
During a nighttime meeting in the Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva in Jerusalem, books with the elder Kaduri’s handwriting from 80 years ago were presented to us in an attempt to prove that the Messiah note was not authentic.
When we told Rabbi Kaduri that his father’s official website http://www.kaduri.net) had mentioned the Messiah note, he was shocked. “Oh no! That’s blasphemy. The people could understand that my father pointed to him [the Messiah of the Christians].”
David Kaduri confirmed, however, that in his last year, his father had talked and dreamed almost exclusively about the Messiah and his coming. “My father has met the Messiah in a vision,” he said, “and told us that he would come soon.”
Israel Today was given access to many of the rabbi’s manuscripts, written in his own hand for the exclusive use of his students. Most striking were the cross-like symbols painted by Kaduri all over the pages. In the Jewish tradition, one does not use crosses. In fact, even the use of a plus sign is discouraged because it might be mistaken for a cross.
But there they were, scribbled in the rabbi’s own hand. When we asked what those symbols meant, Rabbi David Kaduri said they were “signs of the angel.” Pressed further about the meaning of the “signs of the angel,” he said he had no idea. Rabbi David Kaduri went on to explain that only his father had had a spiritual relationship with God and had met the Messiah in his dreams.
Orthodox Jews around the Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva told Israel Today a few weeks later that the story about the secret note of Rabbi Kaduri should never have come out, and that it had damaged the name the revered old sage. http://www.israeltoday.co.i…
Messianic Jews in Israel Follow Yeshua as Messiah
A very interesting secular news story on Channel 2 news in Israel on the growing Messianic Jewish movement sweeping across Israel. This is a fulfillment of Bible prophecy. The news report was on February 23, 2007.
Look at these Jewish Israeli followers of Jesus the Messiah. They have the light of the Holy Spirit in their faces and really love the Lord. This is the best way to help the Israeli people to learn to get along with their neighbours, by teaching them to be “Good Samaritans”, to have a universal view of loving your neighbour. It is an inspiring video. It is sad that they have to join the army and go and fight their Arab neighbour nations in their wars. But if you are Israeli–even if you are a Christian–you are forced to join the army. There is no escape. Of course this is no excuse. But they want to reach their own people. So what other way to reach them? Pray for them to find ways to turn many of them to righteousness by faith.
Jewish Lady Illustrates Jeshua as a Jew
Promoting love and respect between Judaism and Christianity.
Based on the book, The Missing Paintings of Jesus as a Jew, by Clara Maria Goldstein. Rabbi Jesus Art Museum: http://rabbijesusartmuseum.com
To communicate the message that Jesus was a Jew, the paintings include modern Jewish symbols that most contemporary viewers would recognize as those representative of Judaism. [Of course Jesus wouldn’t wear the 6 pointed star on his back. But she is trying to reach her own people this way.]

A Jewish Near Death Experience of Asher Elmekiess
“I have an ex-life and a new life. My ex-life ended when I tried to take my own life with over 70 medicinal tablets, over 26 of which were aspirin 500 mg. That night I had a “before-death experience.”
“It was dark everywhere yet there were sparkles all around like little stars. I was sitting (don’t know on what, it was like there was no ground or nothing beneath me) and was not breathing or feeling anything. When I tried to touch my body, my hand went right through it. It was a place of so much love, peace and joy. I did not want to move or come back from there.
“Then I saw one “Person” come to me. He was dressed with old brown clothing like cloak or gown. A rope was around his waist and he looked like a monk with a hood covering his head and straps on his sandals. He was what I would say a very Biblical looking person. There was something about him, as if he was the Peace, Love and Joy of that place.
“Then he said to me without a voice or sound but in my innermost being, “You are going to go back!”
“I wanted to say something like, “I do not want to,” but I could not say a thing. It was like absolute nothing to argue about.
“Then he said to me the most amazing thing, “You will go to the Christians and they will show you and teach you how to be with me. We will be together soon.”
“I wanted to say, “But I am Jewish.”
““Yes,” he said. “You weren’t thinking much about being Jewish when trying to commit suicide, weren’t you?”
“There was deep shame in me for that action, as it is now, yet little did I know where I was heading from there.
“Then I saw intensified Light and to my surprise I woke up. I was ok, just a little drowsy. So I phoned a doctor friend of mine. He said that it was very foolish of me and that he must phone an ambulance quickly.
“At the hospital, the doctors told me the amount of aspirin I took should have killed me, yet they found no trace of drugs in my blood.
“I was released from the hospital the next day as the doctors found no physical damage of concern to my body and concluded that I was just circumstantially depressed. I cried non-stop for 3 days as if it would not stop – that it would go on forever. I was a fool in my disastrous but merciful failure to end my life because of my wife’s request to divorce me.” — ASHER ELMEKIESS

Jewish Man Exposes Israel’s Lies
How many prophecies exist in the Tanakh about the Meshiac (Messiah)?
How many prophecies exist in the Tanakh about the Messiah?A conservative estimate is well over 100!Many Jews claim to have found the Messiah in a person they have always been taught to stay away from. Since he came to us, he has been defined by Jews as the most anti-Jewish personality in history. In Israel, often Jews will throw Christians, Messianic Jews, or Completed Jews (whichever you prefer to call us) into the same pot as Hitler. Why? Well, That is what they have been told… that Christians persecute Jews. But the truth is that those who call themselves Christians and persecute Jews do not qualify to carry the name of Christ. Jesus certainly would not approve of it. People who persecute the Jews not only misunderstand what it means to be a Jew, but what it means to be a Christian. My Jewish grandparents taught their children to stay away from Christians and their places of worship. Why? Because they were taught this by their parents, etc. But they were never told in detail what Christians believe and why they believe it because they were to simply avoid it. Honestly, there couldn’t be two more similar faiths in all the world. The main difference that divides them is who Jesus is.
AVIAD COHEN’s CONVERSION
Today, many Jewish men and women, after studying the Tanakh and New Testament scriptures, have become convinced that Jesus fits the Jewish description of the Messiah. This begs the question: Why? Why have so many Jews, young and old alike, made this decision? People who study the scriptures cannot be blamed for ignorance of God’s laws, as some purport. These are people with PH.D.’s, parents, and patriots; loving Jews who are pursuing God with all that is within them.
So, do you have the guts to face it squarely and hear them out? What has changed their minds, causing them to risk every relationship they have ever had? What can be worth that much?
You can do one of three things with what you hear: dismiss it, chew on it, or consider it a gift. Your choice. If your searching is thorough and not rushed, you will find out what is true and what is not. You owe it to yourself and your family to research this weighty issue.
If you are Jewish like me, and this scares you, I understand that. Just know that there is a great deal of support available. I am here for you and you can find several reliable resources for information that can help answer your questions.
For your convenience, I have provided references to the Messianic prophecies and each New Testament fulfillment side by side, here. Feel free to read the entire page or scroll down to the list of prophecies linked to the text. If you feel more comfortable looking them up in your own Bible or Tanakh, all the better.
May the LORD guide you and be with you in your quest for the truth.
“But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
