A Couple of Rav Kaduri ZT"L's Mashiah Statements in the News

Introduction:

Arutz Sheva: Doctors Confirm: Sharon’s Organs are Failing

Israel Hayom from May:
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.
1) Tomer Devorah and Shirat Devorah both note that Rav Kaduri ZT"L had said that Ariel Sharon's death would bring the coming of Mashiah.

(Note that you can search on this blog for "Sharon" and find numerous statements from Kabbalists saying that Sharon would be the last prime minister before Mashiah, which is different than saying Mashiah will come after he dies.  Note, however, that Rav Ovadia Yosef ZT"L had said that Hashem should smite Sharon down and then clarified his remarks and wished him a long life.  This could have changed the Heavenly plan since Tzaddik Gozer VeHKB"H Mekayeim.  Sharon was possibly put into a vegetative state for 8 years to fulfill both of Rav Ovadia's statements.)

2) Kikar has an article that it gets from Yavne'el's website that the "Mashiah" that Rav Kaduri met was none other than Rav Eliezer Shlomo Schick Shlit"a, the Tzaddik of Yavne'el, and that Rav Kaduri himself hinted to this.  (Rav Schick was also close with Rav Ovadia ZT"L.  I quoted Rav Schick numerous times on this blog.)

The article says that what happened is that Rav Schick once visited Rav Kaduri in his home.  They talked for a long time about current events and he then departed, with Rav Kaduri escorting him outside.  A second before Rav Schick was about to enter his car, someone from Rav Kaduri's home ran to Rav Schick and told him, "It is known that Rav Kaduri merited to see the Ben Ish Hai, who gave him three blessings: 1) Very long life, 2) No need for glasses, and 3) He will see the face of Mashiah.  The first 2 blessings were definitely fulfilled, and just now, when you left Rav Kaduri's home, Rav Kaduri told me that the third blessing had been fulfilled."

Note that comment #17 on the Kikar article says that Rav Schick is apparently pained by the publication of this article even though he agrees that the details of the story behind it is true.  He adds that he is not the Mashiah and doesn't want to be the Mashiah.

Whoever Mashiah is, may he come to redeem us speedily in our days.

Are you familiar with the idea that we are looking at the death of Methuselah as the prophecy here? Hashem would not bring on the flood to wipe out the evil of the world as long as there was still a Tzadik on the Earth, When Methuselah, the grandfather of Noah, died, Hashem waited seven days (shiva) and then brought on the flood. I don't know the source of this idea applying here, but it seems very appropriate that this could be a prophecy to tell us that after Sharon passes, we wait seven days and some event will occur to destroy the evil in this world. I am not calling Sharon a Tzadik nor am I reading anything into how the destruction may come about. I just know that everything is in the Torah and this appears to be a possibility. Anyone have any information on this?

If he takes Arik because his body cannot continue to enduee, it is a merciful thing towards Arik that he shouldn't be trapped in that prison of a body any longer.
But please Hashem, that we should merit to have this great soul, defender of Israel, born back to our great nation.
Young, full of vigor, full of idealism and indignance that Israel should concede a square inch of land after most of the British Mandate for the Jewish homeland was already given to placate Israels' enemies

thanks shevey. its so nice to read such words about arik sharon. as a noahide, he has been mine and many other non jewish people's hero and an icon, of courage to stand up to yisml. and others. he has touched many hearts, non jewish ones as well. i had prayed and hoped that since Hashem used him for 4 national wars, to defend His beloved israel, that sharon would arise for the final gog and magog war. still his memory remains throughout. he was truly a great man, someone you could fully depend on in times of war, and its so sad that he is not here today when most needed. any the negativity about him and the action taken was foreign meddling and jealousy, that they cannot be arik sharon. truly, a great warrior. G-d bless arik sharon.

I have been paying attention to the weekly parashah and haftorah; and, even though I haven't written about it, it is miraculous how much is happening in the world that is being read each week. This week, in Parashas Bo, we see the last three plagues (Bo has a gematria of 3) and Geula. Is this a message for what is coming up this week? Many more details to be said; but, I will wait to see.

So who did Kaduri see? Who is Moshiach?

It's important to bring out all that Rav Kaduri spoke of and believed in because להבדיל Goyim, as the x-tian site worldnetdaily flaunts, Rav Kaduri somehow relates to their own views of the "coming".

Have you read the twisted thoughts within that WND article? The Goyim have used Rabbi Kaduri's good name to perpetuate their lies.

Rav Kaduri supposedly wrote down the name Yehoshua as the name of Mashiach. Yehoshua (Joshua) of course is about as common as John Smith. Even one of his close confidants and talmidim, Yehoshua Me'iri, had that name. To twist that revelation of Mashiach's name to fit the name of Yoshke is chutzpah beyond belief. I have a neighbor named Josh. I will ask him if he has had any private meetings with Eliyahu HaNavi just to make sure that he is not the one. That note might very well be accurate, though, because the note uses the Roshei HaTeivot from a pasuk which spells out the name Yehoshua. But to twist it into Yoshke??

Shir HaShirim 2 says that the Sharon coastal plain produces many many lilies that dot the fields. It also says that it produces even more thorns...ah but roses amongst those thorns. This is how I look at the life of Ariel Sharon. He produced a fertile field of many tzaddikim. Through his brilliance as a General and then a Builder, he allowed tzaddikim to flourish. At the end of his life, he joined the thorns. That part is the pity. But perhaps he should at least in part be remembered for all the lilies and roses that he helped to flourish.

Sharon's condition continues to worsen. While this may be difficult for his family, perhaps it is best that he is allowed to pass away. I don't know what Sharon is experiencing, but keeping someone alive who is so far gone seems unnatural to me. Then again, if it were someone in my family, I might feel differently.

In any event, it is an exciting time. I followed the Rav Kaduri story closely, and we are at a turning point. The old world is slipping away. Most are unaware of this, but it is happening nonetheless.

Dov, Yeshua is a common abbreviation of Yehoshua, according to some. I'm not an expert, but there are a lot of people who have this view.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yeshua_(name)

If it is not the most well-known Yeshua that Rav Kaduri meant, and that is certainly possible, who is it?

It most certainly is not possible, and those who continue to have this view are making lots of assumptions up that are so far-fetched, it's amazing so many people still believe it. I've talked about this before and I'm not going to rehash it now. In short, the letter is either forged or someone else whose name really is yehoshua was meant or else the rashei teivot were not meaningful.
