Calling On The
By James Donahue
As a strange form of insanity sweeps
polluted and poisoned world is should not be surprising that people of all
religious faiths are looking for some kind of miraculous intervention by God to
save us from ourselves.
It is well known that the Christians
are waiting on the
promised return of Jesus to launch a thousand-year period of peace.
Contemporary “holy men” have stepped out of the shadows in recent years to
either declare themselves to be the long-awaited savior, or to announce the
signs of his arrival.
Believe it or not, one of these modern-day
an Orthodox Jewish Rabbi, who died in 2006 at the age of 108. One year before
his death, Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri awoke from his sleep and declared: “The soul of
the Messiah has attached itself to a person in Israel.” He said the Messiah was
there to guide his people through a “time of trouble.” Then before he died, the
rabbi said he had met this Messiah “and he will come shortly after the death of
Sharon, former Israeli Prime Minister,
died on April 14,
2014, after suffering a stroke in 2006 and lying in a vegetative state for the
next eight years.
There is yet another mystery surrounding
the death of
Rabbi Kaduri. While on his death bed he
wrote a note that he wanted opened and read one year after his death. Thus on
January 28, 2007, the note, written in Hebrew, was opened and read. But its
meaning is yet to be deciphered. It is a peculiar phrase, the initials spelling
“Yehoshua,” which is a Hebrew name for Jesus.
Was this Rabbi telling us that Jesus
is already in the
world and about to make his appearance?
The messages were so vague we have
to question the man’s
mental capabilities toward the end. Why was a Jewish Rabbi so interested in the
return of Jesus?
There are published proclamations,
allegedly made by
Jesus, promising a return at some future date but all were put in print
hundreds of years after the disciples who allegedly heard these words were
dead. Were they fabrications made by the religious scribes of King James in
Peter’s letter to the Thessalonians
said: “For the Lord
Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel,
and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we
who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to
meet the Lord in the air.”
This has been said to be a description
of the “rapture”
of the saints when Jesus appears in the sky. But this doesn’t sound like a
Messiah living secretly among the Jewish people, waiting to make his public
The Book of John, in the reported
last words of Jesus
before he ascended into the clouds, Jesus told his disciples: “Let not your
heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house
are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a
place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and
receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
King Ben Purnell told his followers
in the House of David
in Benton Harbor something similar before he died in 1927. His body was
preserved in a glass case on the cult compound for years until a fire ravaged the
housing that housed it.
