KADURI'S TESTIMONY LIVES ON! Gospel Shared All Over Israel!

By Zev Porat for PNN 

Rabbi Kaduri's note leads to sharing the Gospel
When we share the Good News about Messiah Yeshua to the Jewish people, they think this is only a Christian belief, not one that Jews can accept. However, the truth is that this is the most Jewish message, as revealed in the Messianic prophecies of the Hebrew Bible (Tanach - Old Testament).
When Yeshua began His public ministry, He proclaimed the fulfillment of the prophet Isaiah's prophecy concerning the coming of the Messiah:
Isaiah 61:1 -
"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed me
To bring good news to the afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives
And freedom to prisoners."
The coming of the Messiah was associated with renewal and redemption. Though this was to be understood primarily in spiritual terms, it would also be manifested in the physical world. Yeshua began His ministry with the announcement that the long-awaited Messianic Age had dawned. Reading from the scroll of Isaiah, He announced that this prophecy was now being fulfilled:  
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are downtrodden, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord" (Luke 4:18-19).

From that time on, Yeshua went about performing miracles attesting to His messianic calling - restoring sight to the blind, opening the ears of the deaf, healing the lame, and casting out demons. These supernatural healings pointed to the sad spiritual condition and blindness of humanity as a whole, and our need for spiritual healing.

Isaiah 9:2 -
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them a light has shined.

The mission of the Messiah was to bring spiritual healing and restoration for all people who were stumbling in spiritual darkness, blinded by the god of this age and held captive by sin. We continue that mission today in our ministry outreaches throughout Israel.

Outreach - Rabbi Kaduri's Revelation about Messiah  
Spreading all over Israel
We of Messiah of Israel Ministries were led to share the Good News of Yeshua the Messiah at the Kotel (Western Wall) in Jerusalem. The Kotel is the remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Temple Mount during the time of Yeshua. For centuries, Jews have made pilgrimage and prayed at this holy site.
                  Eleazar fascinated by the book, The Rabbi Who Found Messiah,
                                                        This opens the Word of God.

At the Kotel were many people praying, seeking God, and asking for God's help. Zev began sharing Carl Gallups' book, The Rabbi Who Found Messiah, in order to lead people to Messiah Yeshua. The image of Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri on the book's cover attracted people's attention, and they came to speak with Zev about it. Some were asking questions about the book, while others listened intently to those conversations. What was revealed shocked and amazed those who heard the message that Yeshua is the Messiah.

Zev saw an Orthodox Jew named Eleazar praying at the Wall with his family. Zev asked: "I noticed you praying and crying with your children. May I ask what's wrong so I may pray for you?" Eleazar told Zev that they have been coming to the Wall every week for the last month. During that time, Zev has been the only person expressing a desire to help them. Eleazar then began pouring his heart out to Zev: How sick his wife Orna is and how difficult it is. She has a muscle disease and the doctors say she will be in a wheelchair forever. Eleazar said they were here to ask God for help but they were beginning to believe there is no more hope for Orna." Zev asked: "Do you believe God is a God of miracles and He is a supernatural healer? There is Good News." Eleazar and his children gathered around Zev, eagerly wanting to know the Good News." Eleazar said: "We have been to many rabbis but nothing has helped." Then he noticed the book with Rabbi Kaduri's picture on the cover that Zev held and asked: "Is this the Good News you are talking about?"
Eleazar reading the Messianic prophecies while his children are listening.
Praise Yeshua.
Zev answered: "Yes", and asked Eleazar, with his children listening: "Who was Rabbi Kaduri?" Eleazar responded with great happiness and enthusiasm about Rabbi Kaduri, who he said was the greatest rabbi of all. Zev then asked: "Do you believe what Rabbi Kaduri said?" Eleazar answered: "Of course." Zev went on to explain that Rabbi Kaduri left a note to be opened one year after his death. That note revealed the name of the Messiah. The Good News is about the Messiah. Eleazar asked to see the note. Zev showed him a copy of the note in the book, and read it along with many passages in the book. Eleazar reacted in stunned amazement to the revelation in the note that Yeshua is the Messiah.  Zev then read Isaiah 61:1 -
"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed me
To bring good news to the afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives
And freedom to prisoners."

After reading this, Zev explained that this is the Good News of Yeshua. Only He can free you and your family. This is a love message from God. Clearly, the Holy Spirit was working powerfully in Eleazar and he said: "When I read Rabbi Kaduri's note and the Bible verses, I can't deny it, but I'm scared. We need to talk." Eleazur asked for Zev's phone number so that he could find out more from Zev later privately. Zev encouraged Eleazar and quoted Psalm 118:6 -
"The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"

Please pray with us for Eleazar and his family's healing and salvation.

David reading Rabbi Kaduri's note in Hebrew
that Yeshua is the Messiah.
As Zev continued to share the message about the Messiah among the people, another Orthodox man named David heard Zev talking about Rabbi Kaduri and Good News. He approached Zev and asked: "What's the connection?" Zev explained about Rabbi Kaduri's amazing message in a synagogue on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, that only through the blood of Messiah do we have atonement of sins. David was fascinated and asked Zev if they could sit and read the book. So Zev and David sat in the Kotel area and began reading together in The Rabbi Who Found Messiah. Zev was aware that the more they read, the more the Light of Yeshua was over them - the Shekinah glory was over the Kotel!

After reading Rabbi Kaduri's note, David was in shock. He asked that if the note is true, why hasn't he ever seen or heard about it before. Zev explained that it was in the news and on Kaduri's website, but somebody removed it and shut down the story. If it was not real, what was it doing on his website? David said: "That's true. This is scary and unbelievable." Zev experienced the Holy Spirit working powerfully and knew it was time to read the Good News in Isaiah 61:1, as well as many other Bible verses. They studied the Written Word of God for hours. David heard the full Gospel of Yeshua. We pray that the Holy Spirit continues to work in David so that he comes to know Yeshua is the Messiah.
Zev and David studying the Word . Glory to Yeshua.

Zev continued to share the love of Yeshua with many in the Kotel area. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to work powerfully in the hearts of those who heard the message of love and salvation in Messiah Yeshua.

Please pray for the their salvation
