Author: It's just like God to reveal Messiah to a famous rabbi

Shortly before his death, Israel's most prominent rabbi – Yitzhak Kaduri – alleged to have met Jesus in a vision. OneNewsNow talked with an author who has released a new book and DVD documentary that explains the revelation.

The Rabbi Who Found Messiah (book cover)In The Rabbi Who Found Messiah, Pastor Carl Gallups details the facts around the elderly, revered rabbi who said he had a vision from God that included the revelation of the true Messiah. Gallups says the 108-year-old rabbi left a death note proclaiming the name of the real Messiah was Yehoshua (Jesus).

"He told his followers ... Now look, I'm going to put the name of the Messiah in a note – and one year after I'm dead, open the note and you will know the name of the real Messiah.

"Well, that was shock number-one," says the author. "Shock number-two was that he purportedly said that he had also received the revelation that Messiah would not come until Ariel Sharon had died. Now at the time he spoke those words in 2005, Ariel Sharon was Israel's eleventh prime minister. What happened next is amazing."

On January 4, 2006, the former Israeli prime minister had a severe stroke and lapsed into a coma. A few weeks later Kaduri died. Currently, Sharon has significant brain activity, despite being presumed to be in a vegetative state.

Gallups, the longtime senior pastor of the Florida-based Hickory Hammock Baptist Church, explains that this act of God shouldn't surprise anyone.

"Why should anyone who knows how God works; why should anyone who's familiar with the Old Testament or the New Testament be shocked by this?" he asks. "It's just like God to take the most famous rabbi in modern history [and do this] – why would God not reveal the Messiah [to him]?"

Despite efforts by Kaduri's family to denounce the letter as a forgery, while others even claimed he had simply lost touch due to his age, Gallups stands behind The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri and His Prophecies of the Endtime (WND Books, November 2103).
