FUROR! Rabbi Kaduri Story Sparks Controversy!


Dr. Chuck Missler, founder of Koinonia House ministry, says that in the book, Gallups “explodes one of the biggest bombshells of our lifetime!"

In 2007, two Israeli news publications, Israel Today and News First Class, reported that the most famous rabbi in Israel's modern history, 108-year-old Yitzhak Kaduri, had left a cryptic death note revealing the name of the long-awaited Messiah. When the venerated rabbi died, 300,000 people attended his funeral. The streets of Jerusalem had to be closed down.

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 (Kaduri.net).

The purported Kaduri message proclaimed that Messiah's name was Yehoshua, or Jesus.

Additionally, the predicted death of a famous world figure and beloved politician, Ariel Sharon, was cryptically and shockingly tied to the revelation of the coming Messiah.

The unimaginable revelations shocked the religious world.

Shortly thereafter the furor began. The note mysteriously disappeared from Kaduri's website. The media refused to report further on the matter.

The Kaduri family, and several others close to the Kaduri ministry, began to claim that the note was a forgery or a mere fabrication - a cruel joke.

Now, best selling author, senior pastor, radio talk show host and former law enforcement officer Carl Gallups uses his biblical knowledge and journalistic and investigative skills to explore the matter inside and out.

His thorough and balanced reporting of the documented facts of the case will astound you. Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of "The Harbinger," several renowned biblical experts, as well as former students of Kaduri's rabbinical training school weigh in on the case.


“The feedback from people who have read the book and/or seen the movie has been overwhelmingly positive,” Gallups said.

Gallups continued, “The only negative feedback is from people who falsely assume the conclusions which they believe the book may draw,” he said. “But, they haven’t read it yet. I think most people will be pleasantly and greatly surprised when they read through the book. There are some, however, who would prefer this story not get out to the world.”

"Also," Gallups added, "there have been a few orthodox Jews who have expressed their extreme dissatisfaction with the publishing of this story. I understand that and sympathize. However, this story was reported in Israeli news sources. The note was posted on Kaduri's site. The note did mysteriously disappear and the media has since refused to report on the matter. Ariel Sharon is still in a coma and is alive today. There are many in the religious and especially the prophecy world who are closely following this story. We have resurrected the story in a book and movie. I suppose there would be some who would not be thrilled with that fact. But, the facts of the story speak for themselves."

Gallups also added, "The book deals, in depth, with the facts of this amazing and shocking story. But, it also deals with so much more: historical Judaism, the orthodox Jewish mindset, the Jewish concepts of Messiah, Zionism, Israel history, Israeli political climate, end time prophecy understanding, expert analysis of all these matters, and so much more! This is a book you will want to keep on your bookshelf for years to come."

Dr. Chuck Missler, founder of Koinonia House ministry, says that in the book, Gallups “explodes one of the biggest bombshells of our lifetime. The implications of these astonishing declarations from the most venerated ultra-orthodox rabbi in Israel impacts every one of us – not just those of the traditional Jewish faith. This is a must-read for anyone who takes God seriously."

Dr. David Reagan, host of Christ in Prophecy Television and President of Lamb and Lion Ministries says, "Get ready to be captivated by the story of an event that recently shook the foundations of Orthodox Judaism. You will be fascinated by the event, and you will be mesmerized by Carl's insightful analysis of it."

 Dr. Tim LeHay, NYT #1 best selling author of the LEFT BEHIND series says, "When a much loved Jewish Rabbi dies at 106 years of age, shortly after leaving a secret message revealing the true identity of the Messiah of Israel, it is news of worldwide significance. This is a well-written story worth reading!"
