I have spent thirty-seven years studying about the Messiah, and I was heartened by the prophecy given by Rabbi Kaduri, who had great insight into the Messiah; when I first heard that the Messiah had appeared to him in a vision in a dream. I was excited when I learned that the Messiah introduced Himself to Rabbi Kaduri, giving him His name!
What is amazing about this story is that the Rabbi wrote the Messiah's name in Hebrew inside a saying regarding the Torah, where the first letter of each word in that saying when put together form YEHOSHUA!!! Yeshua is the shortened version of this same name, and it is in English, JESUS!!!
It was wise of him to wish to have this name not read until a year after his passing, because he was too old and frail to suffer through seeing some of the reaction he received from the Chassidim. That name is forbidden and the One to whom it belongs has not been spoken of in Jewish households, barred from discusison for two thousand years, just as the prophets Isaiah and Daniel said would happen to the Messiah, for both say that He would be cut off from His own people and would suffer for their sins and the sins of all of mankind, fulfilling the promise Ha Shem made to Abraham, "In you, all of the families of the earth shall be blessed."
Yeshua of Nazaret has brought the G-d of Israel to the nations, and through His name and Him all men find redemption in G-d, and the Torah is established in their hearts, and a new life is reborn in them, or rather they are born again into a new and living way, adopted by G-d and made joint heirs of the kingdom of G-d through the shed blood of Yeshua Tsidkeinu - Jesus Our Righteousness.
Before He came, there was seperation between Jews and Gentiles - the Jews worshipped the Living G-d and the Goyim or Gentiles (nations) worshipped in ignorance other gods. But since Yeshua appeared precisely as Daniel the prophet prophesied, during the Second Temple Era, He has drawn people from every nation under heaven to worship His Father; the One true G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Through Him, Non-Jews have come near to G-d, and now read and study, and teach from the Hebrew Bible, and Western Civilization has been radically affected by this. No other Jewish religious figure has had this affect on the world, not even Moses.
The Messiah would do this. What's more, the Messiah has come, and the evidence of this is what I have just cited and the rebirth of the nation of Israel - the modern State of Isael! If the Messiah had not come, there would be no Israel today for Him to some day return to in glory. Messiah would come - Moschiach ben Joseph who would die for the nation and draw the nations to G-d, and then the exile for two thousand years, and afterwards, the reestablshment of the Modern State of Israel with Hebrew once again resurrected as language, and Moschiach will return in the sky in great power.
Before this takes place, we are told that Ariel Sharon will die. He is now in a coma and deteriorating every day. When the prophecy was given, Ariel Sharon was in the peak of good health, and active in Israeli politics.
There is much, much more inside this great book. I highly recommend it.
This book goes into the ramificaitons of this for Jew and for Gentile.
