WND: The Messiah Will Come After Sharon Dies

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has been in a coma since 2006 and it looks as though they’re going to pull the plug on him and let him die soon. The Worldnetdaily is promoting the views of a rabbi who says that this is all part of Biblical prophecy and that the messiah will come after he dies.

With the death of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon expected imminently, the chronicler of the life of Israel’s venerated Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri’s prophecies is much in demand by the media.

Why?

Because Kaduri, subject of a new book and movie, both titled “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah,” announced to his followers the long-awaited Messiah would not come until after the death of Sharon. He made the prediction two months before Sharon, still acting as prime minister, had a major stroke in 2006 that has left him in a coma ever since…

Sharon’s death is of interest to mystics in Israel as well as prophecy buffs around the world because of the prediction by Kaduri. Carl Gallups authored the book “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah” and inspired a movie on the subject of the same name in late 2013.

In 2007, Kaduri, the most famous rabbi in Israel’s modern history, at 108 years old, left a cryptic death note revealing the name of the long-awaited Messiah. Within a year after the rabbi’s death, the note was reported to have been verified as authentic by some of Kaduri’s closest followers and then placed on Kaduri’s own website.

Oh goodness, so this was all just an advertisement for a book the Worldnetdaily is selling? How shocking. But bear in mind that this is a Jewish prediction about a future messiah, which means it isn’t Jesus. So why would they be promoting it? Because money trumps all.

    After Sharon dies? That should hold ’em for another two thousand years.

    Mock all you want, but he will either be right or he won’t. That puts the odds at 50%. Take that, skeptics!

  • busterggi

    Unless he already came back but no one was home. There’s a 50% chance of that. Take that Modus!

    That fucker is deader than Terri Schaivo. Hell, he’s deader than the parrot in Monty Phyton’s “Dead Parrot” sketch. Or, maybe he’s just pinin’ for the fjords.

    Wait, I saw this episode of Star Trek. Frank Gorshin, right? Sharon is already dead when they get there.

    Actually, up until recently, brain activity was detected in Sharon, unlike Schaivo whose brain was deader then a doornail.

  • Alverant

    So when it fails to happen within the year, will they apologize for being wrong?

    Nope. From the link:

    The Kaduri prophecy did not name a specific time or date in which Messiah would be revealed — only that it would not happen until after Sharon had died.

    Did it say that the Messiah would be revealed on Earth? If not hat means we can’t even pin it down to the next 5 billion years before the Sun becomes a red giant and swallows the planet.

    colnago80:

    I’m sure that you’re correct. I’m also as nearly positive as one can be that Sharon was never going to be making any decisions, like when to breathe, on his own.

    If he has been “alive” for the last 6+ years, I hope that he was silently screaming. Yes, I’m not very nice, but I’m WAY nicer than he was.

  • ildi

    Oh, Sharon, not Sauron.

    But bear in mind that this is a Jewish prediction about a future messiah, which means it isn’t Jesus.

    How do you know, Mr. Smartypants? Care to share the number of Heaven’s Prophecy Fulfillment Support Line?

    Heavenly Operator: Prophecy fulfillment. What religion?

    Ed: None… no wait! Jewish!

    Heavenly Operator: I’ll transfer you.

    Jewish Prophecy Operator: Yes?

    Ed: When Sharon dies, the coming messiah is not Jesus, right?

    Jewish Prophecy Operator: Please answer this security question: provide one recipe for gifilte fish.

    Ed: Umm…. fish and… umm…

    Jewish Prophecy Operator: Goodbye.

    AFAIK, Sharon was on a feeding tube but was breathing on his own and did not require a ventilator. Shiavo also didn’t require a ventilator.

  • laurentweppe

    So the Messiah must already be in primary school: Sharon has been dead for 8 years and even the latest technology can’t stop anymore his headless corpse from roting.

    Again, I don’t doubt that his autonomic nervous system is still functioning, I just don’t think that he’s making any decisions anytime soon.

    Does this mean that WND denies that Jesus Christ was the Messiah? *le GASP* Juicy!

    Aw, Ed beat me to it. I bet the Xians are hearing the word “Messiah” and assuming “Jesus”, because most of them are so damn ignorant about the origins of their own religion and the theological differences between Judaism and Christianity that they simply don’t realise that according to Jews, Jesus wasn’t the Messiah.

    My observation having been raised to be a fundie (never really took), was that nearly all Christians are aware of the fact that Judaism yearned for a messiah around the time the biblical Jesus character supposedly lived. Not all Jews do now. So I’d take your bet.

    Instead I think a more likely conclusion by these readers is:

    a) Most Christians don’t read the WND. This is the Christian version of the grocery rag that features Batboy and Nostradamus’ predictions.

    b) Those delusional idiots that read the WND probably do think it might be Jesus via his ‘2nd coming’; where this time Jews accept him. There’s some New Testament passages long used by some Christians to predict this will happen.

    So I disagree with the premise the WND is being disingenuous or hypocritical here. This prediction is in-line with mainstream fundie/evangelical dogma held by many of those denominations, though not all since some argue Jesus’ 2nd coming occurred late in the 1st century of the Common Era.

    I’d actually have to give him very high odds of nailing this prophecy dead on. Considering that I’d technically count not coming at all as meeting the “not coming until after the death of Sharon” requirement.

  • Gvlgeologist, FCD

    “Mock all you want, but he will either be right or he won’t. That puts the odds at 50%. Take that, skeptics!”

    Well, I’m 100% certain that the messiah will NOT come before he dies.

    Now you’re just being ridiculous. Batboy doesn’t make predictions.
