The Rabbi's Students Who Found Messiah!!!

EDITED AND UPDATED 19 February 2014: This past week (10-14 February 2014) I followed with great interest the series on the highly respected Lamb and Lion Ministries (Dr. David Reagan and Nathan Jones) blog, The Christ in Prophecy Journal, that was discussing Pastor Carl Gallups most recent book, "The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri and his Prophecies of the Endtime." I recommend reading the series through from start to finish; it can be accessed in-sequence by clicking HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.

I have placed an order for the book. Not being content with having to wait for a hard-copy of the book, I began data mining for more information and immediately found the video I have embedded below. This video is essential and is well worth your viewing, listening to and studying of in consideration above for the objective of learning as much as possible about this story. I must note that the in-depth interview within the video between Coast to Coast AM host George Noory and Pastor Gallups occurred about 1 month prior to the death of Ariel Sharon in January of this year.

There is no question in my mind that Rabbi Kaduri made claims about having "met the Moshiach." Those claims are well documented on the Israeli websites, News First Class (Nfc) and (The Rabbi, the Note and the Messiah). This linked article is a must read.

The question that remains for me is: Exactly who was the "Jehoshua" that appeared to Rabbi Kaduri in a "mystical vision" on 4 November 2003?  It is from this common Hebrew name Jehoshua that Rabbi Kaduri, true to his life-long Kabbalist beliefs, crafted the acromymic code in the sealed note he signed in Elul 5765 (September 2005).

This cryptic note was written and signed in "the month of mercy" which is Elul/September. The mere fact that Rabbi Kaduri created and signed his note concerning the name of the Jewish Moshiach at this time speaks to deliberate intent and meaning because to the Jews the month of Elul is a special month of Divine grace (mercy and forgiveness) that dates back to the year 1313 BC, Moses, the Ten Commandments, the Law and the year following the Exodus from Egypt. These facts are as key and integral to Rabbi Kaduri's actions as the note itself!

Rabbi Kaduri crafted this note in his 108th year, just four months prior to his death in January 2006. Kaduri instructed those to whom he entrusted the note that it not be opened until at least one year after his death. Given the overwhelming nature of the claim within the note for all Israel, what difference would a year make with respect to any sect of Judaism? It's kind of like Moses dying before Israel can pass into the Promised Land, at least that how I am understanding this aspect of the Kaduri saga, all of which is steeped in unbridled mysticism.

Getting to the crux of the issue...

Forget everything I had written previously about this. It was incorrect.  Today, on the third day in which I have been data mining for everything I could find on Rabbi Kaduri, his vision of the Messiah, his note, and his students, I finally found  what I had prayed for the Lord to lead me to.

I prayed for the Lord to lead me to just one of Rabbi Kaduri's yeshiva students who had found Jesus Christ as a direct result of what the rabbi had taught them. The Lord woke me up three nights in a row at zero-dark-thirty in the morning to continue the search. No rest until you get it right, that's what my past three days amounted to in essence.

So, I prayed for one and the Lord has provided two. And now I have learned that there's a third, a fourth, a fifth, sixth, seventh and an eighth. And I found the Rabbi Kaduri yeshiva students after finding an Israeli brother-in-Christ on the internet by the name of Zev Porat. In locating Zev I located his Messiah of Israel Ministry and the pair of videos of Zev Porat interviewing Rabbi Kaduri's former yeshiva students confessing Jesus Christ as Lord, Messiah of Israel and the whole world.

Well, enough from me. Listen to Rabbi Kaduri's former yeshiva students, Eliyahu and Rabbi David tell you how Jesus is the Messiah and only through His blood can anyone attain eternal salvation. The interviewer is Zev Porat.

Let us all pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, that all the people of Israel may receive the revelation of Yeshua HaMashiach; that all Israel be saved and all Israel to tabernacle with Him. In Jesus Name, Amen.

We're going to start the comments section for this item anew. I can think of no better Bible verse to launch these new comments with than this one:

2 Corinthians 5:17

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."

Anonymous said...

I am a little confused on where you stand you still believe the rabbi had a demonic or false visit, ot are you now seeing it as legitimate?

Sean Osborne said...


Considering that the Gospel of Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:8) is being proclaimed by Eliyahu and David, the two Orthodox Jewish students of Rabbi Kaduri who imparted to them the vision of what he saw... how then does a demonic deception cause men to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ? It cannot! Only the Holy Spirit convicts a man to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ! This is the purest and most basics of the fruits of the Holy Spirit - preaching Yeshua HaMashiach as the Lamb of the Living God.

These Orthodox Jewish men realized through the teaching of Rabbi Kaduri that Jehoshua/Yeshua/Jesus was the Messiah; that Psalm 2 expressly prophesied about Yeshua/Jesus the Son of God who IS the Messiah.

They learned that the 70 Weeks prophecy given by the angel Gabriel to the prophet Daniel (Daniel 9:24-27) teaches that the Messiah came to Israel prior to the destruction of the 2nd Temple.

"Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem
Until Messiah the Prince,
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
The street shall be built again, and the wall,
Even in troublesome times.

And after the sixty-two weeks
Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;
And the people of the prince who is to come
Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.

I also now believe that a false narrative about what Rabbi Kaduri was alleged to have taught has been propagated by some in Israel to discredit. I do not believe that Rabbi Kaduri spoke of Yehoshua in the terms of a "Tsadikim Nistarim" or "Anonymous Tsadikim." I believe he spoke of Him in terms of being the living Melek Mashiach (King Messiah) of Israel.

This is what these students of Rabbi Kaduri are saying about what he had taught them.

This is awesome. It honestly put a huge frog in my throat! Here at work =)

So now that new light has been shed on the subject... perhaps his vision was legit! and perhaps he had accepted Christ and just kept it from the general public?

God used a zealous Pharisee (former) to spread the gospel farther than any of his contemporaries as well as writing more than half of the new testament!

Ken B said...

ok... 4 min. into the first video and I AM crying at my desk... at work... no drawings happening here! Haha!

It's the non-nutty Pentecostal, AofG upbringing...

hartdawg said...

Hi Sean.
There seems to me more and more info being uncovered all the time about this matter. Is this guy legit or not? Personally, I decided not to pursue this much further. As Peter said about his experience "we have a more sure word of prophecy" there is so much real prophecy being fulfilled that even if this guy is totally legit I'm looking to the scriptures and if this ever comes up in a conversation, I'll just refer people to the scriptures.

Sean Osborne said...


Yes, keeping quiet or a low profile is something both Eliyahu and David talked about in Hebrew with Zev Porat.

Rabbi David (the second video) also stated that there are many other rabbi's in Israel who believe in Jesus as Messiah, but keep their acceptance to themselves for the reasons he mentioned.

I cannot now see how Rabbi Kaduri could have taught Jesus as Messiah without believing it himself.

We must be mindful that Jesus gave explicit instructions to the leper He healed to keep His miracle working ministry a secret (Mark 1:41-44). The leper immediately disobeyed Jesus' instructions and He had to move His ministry from the various towns into the desert. Jesus also gave another instruction to the leper. Be mindful of that instruction as well and what it meant. A far larger picture was being brought to being and the Lord went about it in His own way, for His own purposes and the purposes of the Father.

Now, within Orthodox Judaism this new work in salvation is just beginning as well, we must understand this and withhold our criticism of these new Jewish brethren until we have walked a mile in the shoes of a Jesus-loving former Orthodox Jew living in Israel. I have no doubt at this point that Satan and his demons are working overtime to thwart this. This is how I feel I have been led to explain these things.

Sean Osborne said...


There is much, much more coming in this. Much more. These are our newest brethren, we must support them in prayer and by all other means available to us.

This is the tip of a Divine iceberg, so to speak, and very soon, I believe, we will see the Lord pouring out His Holy Spirit in a way that will truly astound. We should be prepared for this, because it is among the greatest of the end-time prophecies coming to literal fulfillment.

Indeed we do have a more sure word of prophecy... and you can see its literal fulfillment in the two videos I posted.

Sean, I should have asked permission first but I so wanted to share your comments with my friends on a Private FB page. It is a Christian group and our main interests is in Eschatology and even though we get off subject on a regular basis that is where our hearts are.
If you would rather not have me link to your blog page, I will remove it from there but we have been discussing the issue with Rabbi who knew the name of the Messiah. I would like them to know the same things you have discovered.
Please let me know and I will do accordingly.


Sean Osborne said...


Post it, link it, whatever you want to do is fine by me.

The most important thing to me in this is two-fold:

1. To get as many as possible to view the two videos of Rabbi Kaduri's yeshiva students professing Jeshua HaMashiach,


2. To support Lev Porat and his Messiah of Israel Ministry to the best extent possible.

hartdawg said...

I hope my previous comment didn't sound to dismissive or non caring, I was getting ready to start work. While the bible warns about counterfeit signs and miracles, such a warning wouldn't make sense unless there were real signs and miracles to counterfeit.
Here's a thought I had, shortly after the start of the 70th week we see 144,000 Jewish witnesses (you're well aware of this passage), and then a "multitude which no man can number". We also see promises of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit (which I believe occurs during the 1st half of the week, if I'm mistaken please correct me). If Jews are starting to come to Christ because of this letter then could that be an indication of how close we are?

Yes, precisely the point!

Watch this 3-minute long video

The harvests (of barley and wheat) are coming and only the Father knows the day and the hour

Proverbs 25:2
"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,
But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.

The Feast of Firstfruits at Passover (the firstfruits of the barley harvest) is followed by the Feast of Weeks (exactly 50 days later, i.e. Pentecost which means 50, which is the first fruits of the wheat harvest) which is followed by the Feast of Tabernacles (the first fruits of the olive and grape harvests).

The Feast of Weeks contains two loaves of leavened bread. One loaf represents Gentile believers, the other loaf the Jewish believers. Ephesians 2:14-15.

Yes, hartdawg, this indicates we are that close!

Great Grany 5 said...

Sean and Hartdawg, you are getting me all worked up and now I have to go digging and searching for the bible verses that just started flowing in me. I always wondered about the two loaves of bread at the Feast of Weeks and never could get a satisfactory explanation. Thank you Sean for it. Of course it is two groups of people; Jew and Gentile but I had always assumed it was for the priests to offer similar to our communion.

It isn't that I didn't try to find the meaning, it was just because i wasn't ready for the revealing factors. A time for all things. And the fact that the loaves are leavened is very interesting also. Yeast causes a capacity to rise!!!!

Sean, isn't there another Jewish Day of celebration that isn't related to the Set Feast that God proclaimed? Something that relates to a harvest but relatively unnoticed by the Church? I know I have heard about it years ago and it seems like it is one that is totally about praise. I have looked, asked and no one seems to know about it but my Jewish friends in Ft. Smith were very old and celebrated it back in the early 70's. They were converted Hebrew speaking Jews that survived the Holocaust and took on English sounding names in order to get to America.

Getting excited all over again!


Sean Osborne said...


And also notice that the two loaves of bread, one barley and one wheat, are made into unleavened (no yeast) bread. This is a matzoh bread, heavy and sweet. Most importantly, leaven is symbolic of sinfulness, so both loaves being unleavened means that they have had their sinfulness removed.

How's that for some symbolism!!!

But wait... there's more!

All seven of the feasts appointed by God to Israel (Leviticus 23: Sabbath, Passover, Firstfruits, Weeks, Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles) symbolized some aspect of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They also have symbolic prophetic meaning.

The Feast of Trumpets is symbolic of the Harpazo of the Bride of Christ because ten days later the Feast of Atonement is symbolic of God once again turning His full attention upon Israel, and Tabernacles which follows five days later is symbolic of the Millennium because all men will then "tabernacle< (dwell) with Jesus Christ, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, on the Earth.

As for the festival you cannot recall... might it be Shemini Atzeret / Simchat Torah? This one was very big with the generation of Jews that survived the Holocaust. Outside of Israel (diaspora) this is a two-day joyous celebration; within Israel it is a one-day celebration.

hartdawg said...

The symbolism in the scriptures, particularly the Torah, is simply amazing!!!

Great Grany 5 said...

Sean, I think you got it on the forgotten festival. This was a joyous gathering and I was allowed to go with them on 3 separate occasions. What I remember the most about is the dancing and the music because they sang their worship to YAHWEH and danced most of that time. You could actually feel the presence of the Lord and at that time, I didn't have a clue what His Presence felt like. I dearly loved them and what got me the most was how readily they accepted me into their fold. If our gathering up with the Lord is going to be anything like that, LET'S GO!

Their last name that they took in order to get to America was Sherman and there were quite a few of them that lived in my area at that time.

I have to get into my bible study more instead of letting laziness overtake me any longer. What you shared about the two loves that were unleavened is also a refreshing reminder to me but I needed it today. The unleavened go to the Lord and the yeast infected get to try to get it right before the Planting of the Feet of Jesus on Mt. of Olives. OH YES! Hartdawg is not the only that is getting his socks knocked off of him by all of this remarkable information.

Thank you all for helping this ole woman awakened and renewed to the hidden things in God's Word.


Great Grany 5 said...

Oh, I wanted to tell you something else that your info on the yeast bread caused me to remember. Back in my younger days, after I was saved, I had my own catering service in my little rural community. My favorite products were all about yeast! One day as I was making about 16 loaves of Jewish braided bread of part white and part rye, I had a call from the hospital where I worked as a lab assistant. They had an emergency and needed some X-rays and blood test done.

I hadn't got to the part of my bread dough where I added my yeast so I simply put a cheese cloth on it and ran off for my duty. When I came back about 2 hours later I was amazed that there seemed to be some sort of action taking place in my water, sugar and flour mix that I had started. I heard later from a rural home nutritionist that this is a natural always occurring reaction to that mixture and it comes from the dust that is always airborne anywhere. Some places it is more active than others, like San Francisco, thus Sour Dough Bread.

More dirt(sin)= faster contamination to otherwise good products. Kinda like humans. Good can prevail in putrid surrounds but it requires constant watchfulness and a set heart to serve God.


Sean Osborne said...


Yessireebob, the Lord symbolism is truly amazing and all of it relates to something literal and real.

I've said this before, but it bears repeating because of its importance. The same goes for ALL of the parables that Jesus gave to the Jews. Due to the Covenant at Moab... "Yet the Lord has not given you (the Jews, for the most part) a heart to perceive and eyes to see and ears to hear, to this very day (Deuteronomy 29:4)... Jesus had to speak to the Jews in parables so they would have some point of reference in understanding what he was attempting to say to them specifically on a Spiritual level.

Even the 12 Apostles were taught key things in parables by Jesus because of this Spiritual blindness, deafness and unperceivable heart. The Olivet Discourse contained a total of six parables:

1.) The Parable of the Fig Tree
2.) The Parable of the Day or Hour
3.) The Parable of the Faithful and Evil Servants
4.) The Parable of Wise and Foolish Virgins
5.) The Parable of Talents.

After they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost they suddenly had a perfect understanding of everything Jesus had told them on the Spiritual level and, in the Spirit, wrote the Gospels.

Thanks Sean...some thoughts...

Christians and Messianic Jews (Jews who accept Christ as the Messiah)understand that Christ was the One, there is no other to come.

That Rabbi Kaduri came to this realization is in itself not unique, but that he, a non-Messianic Jew at the time, was chosen to prophecy by Christ Himself is extraordinary. I am reminded of the parable of the workers in the vineyard...the last will be first and the first will be last. Kaduri represents one who was hired at the eleventh hour and apparently given the mission, due to the extraordinary mercy of God, to offer this last opportunity for those Jews who were prepared to start work at this late hour in the service of Christ Jesus.

That he was to prophecy that Christ will appear after the death of Ariel Sharon tells us that the time is definitely near. The eleventh hour workers are busy at work along with the earlier hired, payday is imminent for all.

God bless...

Sean Osborne said...


Extraordinary indeed! I could not agree more with your thoughts, especially the parable of the workers in the vineyard. Ace!

I'm keeping an eye on this. I do believe that these new Israeli brethren are a sort of proverbial kick-start for the arrival of the 144,000 Jewish evangelists who will be sealed with God's name on their foreheads.

Sean, you said:

"and Tabernacles which follows five days later is symbolic of the Millennium because all men will then "tabernacle< (dwell) with Jesus Christ, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, on the Earth."

Can I suggest a different interpretation of the prophetic significance of Tabernacles? We read in Zech14:16:

"Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles"

Why would it be that the only holiday, which it is incumbent upon the people of earth to observe during the milennium, is the final Feast on the calendar - Tabernacles? Could it be that during the milennium, we will still be looking FORWARD to a yet future fulfillment?

At the end of the milennium we read: "And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the TABERNACLE (my emphasis) of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” Revelation 21:2-4

It is when the heavnly sukka, the New Jerusalem, comes out of heaven that the calendar is complete - the book is closed - and the eternal dwelling of God with men is instituted in our reality. Shalom & blessings...
