Signs of the Endtimes

By Stephen Yulish


A friend just sent me an article from Arutz Sheva, Israel National News, entitled “Kabbalist urges Jews to Israel ahead of impending disasters.” I was very tempted to just delete the article because of my disdain for anything to do with Jewish mystical lore (i.e. Kabbalah). From personal experience, I had found out that it is all demonic, but something inside me told me to read the article. After I had finished the article, I knew that it had been the Ruach Hakodesh, the Holy Spirit that had coaxed me to read what I did not want to read. What I found strengthened my belief that we are indeed in the last of days and that the people of Israel are being setup for the reign of the antichrist. May God have mercy on their souls.

On Tuesday night, September 13, Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri, a Rabbi steeped in Jewish kabbalistic, mystical lore told his yeshiva class (Jewish school) that Jews all over the world needed to return to Israel due to impending natural disasters which threatened to strike the world. I asked myself how he could know that this was going to happen. Was it because he used gematria (numerology) and other kabbalistic divinations, witchcraft, and demonic practices that the Lord called detestable to Him in Deuteronomy 18:10-12? Of course not, but Satan knows that his time is short (Revelation 12:12) and he will give people just enough knowledge to condemn them to hell with him for eternity.

We know from Scripture that the Jews will return to the land of Israel in the end of days (Isaiah 43:5-7). We know that the Church is about to taken up to be with Jesus in the clouds at the harpazo, the rapture (I Thess. 4:16-17, I Cor.15:52). We know that the man of lawlessness, the antichrist, will then be revealed (2 Thess.2:3-4) and will take his place in the rebuilt Temple and declare himself to be God. Rabbi Kaduri said that when the danger comes to Israel, the Temple will be rebuilt and the righteous Messiah will be revealed. Open your eyes people and see how Satan is using Rabbi Kadori to bring Jews back to Israel and to worship the soon to be revealed “unrighteous messiah”, the antichrist, in the rebuilt Temple.

We know that the Temple was destroyed in 70AD but that it is mentioned again in 2 Thess.2:4 where the antichrist takes his seat. What do the terms rebuilt Temple, “Messiah” and Israel all connote? Either the Millennial reign of Jesus (Revelation 20:4ff) or the three and half year reign of the false Messiah (Daniel 9:27), the antichrist?

Rabbi Kadori said that many dangers and disasters would come upon the earth. He is correct. After the rapture of the saints, the seven years of tribulation will begin which the prophet Jeremiah called the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7). During that time 2/3 of the Jews will perish (Zechariah 13:8) until the Messiah returns and “all Israel (the 1/3 left) will be saved (Romans 11:26).

Instead of Jews (unsaved) realizing that Yeshua (Jesus) is their Lord and Savior, not only are they going to be left at the rapture, but they are going to be misled and deceived once again to accept a false messiah as their savior and two thirds will die in the tribulation. Rabbi Kadori said that the great Rabbi Schneerson told him that he would live to see the coming of the messiah. He also said that the current government of Israel will be the last one of the old era. Sharon will the last PM. The new leadership will be that of the messianic era. If that is true, although it will be the antichrist false messiah, then our time here on earth is short. We soon will be taken into the clouds with Jesus. Look up brethren because your redemption draws nigh! (Luke 21:28).

Maranatha! Come quickly Lord Jesus!
