Having searched for the truth about God most of my life, I came to some conclusions as a young girl, which were completely false.. I was always searching for Jesus and who He really was; as I was told in our synagogue that he was not the Messiah for whom my people were waiting. We were also told that his disciples stole his body in the night and moved it, so that people would be convinced that He rose from the dead.
The hunger to know the truth about this man who changed history continued to the day in 1983 when I met my Messiah Yeshua. When the Christian couple shared with me about sin and repentance and how Jesus loved me and died for me, there was no doubt in my mind that this was the truth for which I had been searching for decades.
My first false belief
When I was in my early teens, I had come to the conclusion that the Catholics were the holiest people. After I was born again, God gave me discernment to see that this was a superficial holiness. They were much like the Pharisees – dressed in long flowing robes and looking for the approval of men. They cared not for approval from God; their hearts were far from Him.
As I studied the Word of God, I came to realize that the Catholic Church was a “works-based” religion, nothing about being saved by Grace through faith. I concluded that Catholicism did not represent true Christianity.
When I was in our Conservative synagogues’s youth group, they planned a trip to New York City to visit a community of Hasidic Jews. I had seen these people before, close to where I grew up. They wore black hats and clothes; long side curls (peyot) and they always walked to their synagogue on the Sabbath day.
In my mind I was convinced that the Hasidim were the Ultra-Orhodox Jews. Again – the most holy. In my research of Kabbalah, God revealed the shocking truth about the Hasidim to me.
I remember during that youth group trip, having a feeling of dread whenever we visited the community. I didn’t know why I was feeling this way. I thought perhaps because they were so holy and so close to God that maybe I was feeling inferior or maybe I was not a Jew at all. What I am about to reveal to the reader about Hasidic Judaism will clearly explain why I had such dark feelings when I was around these people.
Chasidim (Hasidism) and Mitnagdim
In the 1700s, the first of the modern movements developed in Eastern Europe. This movement, known as Chasidism, was founded by Israel ben Eliezer, more commonly known as the Baal Shem Tov or the Besht. Before Chasidism, Judaism emphasized education as the way to get closer to G-d. Chasidism emphasized other, more personal experiences and mysticism as alternative routes to G-d.
Chasidism was considered a radical movement at the time it was founded. There was strong opposition from those who held to the pre-existing view of Judaism. Those who opposed Chasidism became known as mitnagdim (opponents), and disputes between the Chasidim and the mitnagdim were often brutal. Today, the Chasidim and the mitnagdim are relatively unified in their opposition to the liberal modern movements. Orthodoxy and even the liberal movements of Judaism today have been strongly influenced by Chasidic teachings.
Chasidic sects are organized around a spiritual leader called a Rebbe or a tzaddik, a person who is considered to be more enlightened than other Jews. A Chasid consults his Rebbe about all major life decisions.
Chasidism continues to be a vital movement throughout the world. The Lubavitcher Chasidim are very vocal with a high media presence (see their website, Chabad.org), but there are many other active Chasidic sects today. For example, Breslov, Satmar and Bobover. –source
There is so much to learn about Kabbalah, so I am going to post links from chabad.org for the reader to explore. A true child of God will immediately discern the satanic influence on Hasidism and Chabbalah:
Kabbalah, Chasidism and Jewish Mysticism
Are Practices such as Wicca and Tarot Kosher for a Jew?
Channeling the Inner High Priest
Intimacy in the Place of Otherness
To the reader: these are just a few of the links on chabad.org which clearly show Kabbalah and Hasidism to be satanic. If you explore this website, please pray that the Lord will protect your mind and spirt.
The Rabbi, the Note and the Messiah
A few years ago, a story came out of Israel about a rabbi, Yizhak Kaduri, who claimed that it was revealed to him the name of the coming Messiah of Israel. As soon as I read this story, the Lord gave me the discernment to see that it was evil and not from Him.
From the website:
“A few months before he died, one of the nation’s most prominent rabbis, Yitzhak Kaduri, supposedly wrote the name of the Messiah on a small note which he requested would remain sealed until now. When the note was unsealed, it revealed what many have known for centuries: Yehoshua, or Yeshua (Jesus), is the Messiah.
With the biblical name of Jesus, the Rabbi and kabbalist described the Messiah using six words and hinting that the initial letters form the name of the Messiah. The secret note said:
Concerning the letter abbreviation of the Messiah’s name, He will lift the people and prove that his word and law are valid.
This I have signed in the month of mercy,
The Hebrew sentence (translated above in bold) with the hidden name of the Messiah reads:
Yarim Ha’Am Veyokhiakh Shedvaro Vetorato Omdim
ירים העם ויוכיח שדברו ותורתו עומדים
The initials spell the Hebrew name of Jesus יהושוע . Yehoshua and Yeshua are effectively the same name, derived from the same Hebrew root of the word “salvation” as documented in Zechariah 6:11 and Ezra 3:2. The same priest writes in Ezra, “Yeshua (ישוע) son of Yozadak” while writing in Zechariah “Yehoshua (יהושוע) son of Yohozadak.” The priest adds the holy abbreviation of God’s name, ho (הו), in the father’s name Yozadak and in the name Yeshua.
With one of Israel’s most prominent rabbis indicating the name of the Messiah is Yeshua, it is understandable why his last wish was to wait one year after his death before revealing what he wrote.
When the name of Yehoshua appeared in Kaduri’s message, ultra-Orthodox Jews from his Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva (seminary) in Jerusalem argued that their master did not leave the exact solution for decoding the Messiah’s name.
The revelation received scant coverage in the Israeli media. Only the Hebrew websites News First Class (Nfc) and Kaduri.net mentioned the Messiah note, insisting it was authentic. The Hebrew daily Ma’ariv ran a story on the note but described it as a forgery.
Jewish readers responded on the websites’ forums with mixed feelings: “So this means Rabbi Kaduri was a Christian?” and “The Christians are dancing and celebrating,” were among the comments.
Israel Today spoke to two of Kaduri’s followers in Jerusalem who admitted that the note was authentic, but confusing for his followers as well. “We have no idea how the Rabbi got to this name of the Messiah,” one of them said.
Yet others completely deny any possibility that the note is authentic.
In an interview with Israel Today, Rabbi David Kaduri, 80, the son of the late Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, denied that his father left a note with the name Yeshua just before he died. “It’s not his writing,” he said when we showed him a copy of the note. During a night-time meeting in the Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva in Jerusalem, books with Kaduri’s handwriting from 80 years ago were presented to us in an attempt to prove that the Messiah note was not authentic.
When we told Rabbi Kaduri that his father’s official website (www.kaduri.net) had mentioned the Messiah note, he was shocked. “Oh no! That’s blasphemy. The people could understand that my father pointed to him [the Messiah of the Christians].” David Kaduri confirmed, however, that in his last year his father had talked and dreamed almost exclusively about the Messiah and his coming. “My father has met the Messiah in a vision,” he said, “and told us that he would come soon.”
Kaduri’s Portrayal of the Messiah
A few months before Kaduri died at the age of 108, he surprised his followers when he told them that he met the Messiah. Kaduri gave a message in his synagogue on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, teaching how to recognize the Messiah. He also mentioned that the Messiah would appear to Israel after Ariel Sharon’s death. (The former prime minister is still in a coma after suffering a massive stroke more than a year ago.) Other rabbis predict the same, including Rabbi Haim Cohen, kabbalist Nir Ben Artzi and the wife of Rabbi Haim Kneiveskzy.
Kaduri’s grandson, Rabbi Yosef Kaduri, said his grandfather spoke many times during his last days about the coming of the Messiah and redemption through the Messiah. His spiritual portrayals of the Messiah—reminiscent of New Testament accounts—were published on the websites Kaduri.net and Nfc:
“It is hard for many good people in the society to understand the person of the Messiah. The leadership and order of a Messiah of flesh and blood is hard to accept for many in the nation. As leader, the Messiah will not hold any office, but will be among the people and use the media to communicate. His reign will be pure and without personal or political desire. During his dominion, only righteousness and truth will reign.
“Will all believe in the Messiah right away? No, in the beginning some of us will believe in him and some not. It will be easier for non-religious people to follow the Messiah than for Orthodox people.
“The revelation of the Messiah will be fulfilled in two stages: First, he will actively confirm his position as Messiah without knowing himself that he is the Messiah. Then he will reveal himself to some Jews, not necessarily to wise Torah scholars. It can be even simple people. Only then he will reveal himself to the whole nation. The people will wonder and say: ‘What, that’s the Messiah?’ Many have known his name but have not believed that he is the Messiah.”
Farewell to a ‘Tsadik’
Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri was known for his photographic memory and his memorization of the Bible, the Talmud, Rashi and other Jewish writings. He knew Jewish sages and celebrities of the last century and rabbis who lived in the Holy Land and kept the faith alive before the State of Israel was born.
Kaduri was not only highly esteemed because of his age of 108. He was charismatic and wise, and chief rabbis looked up to him as a Tsadik, a righteous man or saint. He would give advice and blessings to everyone who asked. Thousands visited him to ask for counsel or healing. His followers speak of many miracles and his students say that he predicted many disasters.
When he died, more than 200,000 people joined the funeral procession on the streets of Jerusalem to pay their respects as he was taken to his final resting place.
“When he comes, the Messiah will rescue Jerusalem from foreign religions that want to rule the city,” Kaduri once said. “They will not succeed for they will fight against one another.” – source
Brethren, is it not clear that this “message” to Rabbi Kaduri was NOT from God, but from the evil one? Would our Messiah not know that he is the Messiah?
A sister in Christ and fellow writer, Cynthia Nuara, wrote a piece for Rapture Ready about the “Rabbi who found Messiah.” I believe that she brilliantly articulates the truth about this great deception:
A video which clearly shows that Freemasonry is Based on Kabbalah teachings:
“I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive” (John 5:43).
6 thoughts on “Hasidic Judaism, Rabbi Kaduri And the Shocking Truth About These Mystics”
I have Lubavitcher, Hasidic and Orthodox relatives and friends and none of them have ever spoke evil to me — only an atheist relative. My brothers were scared I’d offend my grandparents cause my grandparents were so observant. My grandmother told my mother that I love the Lord when I was sharing the gospel. My mom said it was a different lord but my grandmother rebuked her snd said it’s the same lord. My grandfather said I could stay with them but I should get a job before I started preaching so people would respect men. He was kosher and went to temple often etc.
Recently this guy on FB wrote before he blocked me —
Ouriel Baruch Winn
then you are even lower than goy, you are a kofer. It is a mitzvah to hate and destroy you.
I should have wrote “me”, not “men”
Doug, I am not saying that your relatives are evil people – if they reject Yeshua as the Messiah of the whole world, then they are lost and need Him. My article speaks of the occult practices of those involved in Kabbalah. In the Old Testament, the Lord warns His people to not take part in witchcraft or meet with spiritists. We should not talk to the dead or believe in reincarnation. I’m speaking of the practice of Kabbalah – not saying that the people are any more evil than any other sinner in dire need of a Savior – Yeshua.
I know. I just felt like venting about the recent rejection I got from FB. I keep praying for my relatives. As far as my grandparents and dad they are gone but it seems my grandma saying “Dougie loves the Lord” when I spoke of Messiah Yeshua is a confession.
What – if any – connection is there between Kabbalah and Ezekiel 8? I’ve heard it taught that this is what Ezekiel saw being practiced?
I am going to have to research this. Thank you for this information! Bless you
