lol ,omg ..if there is a god it wont matter what cause you follow,i'm not religious,all religions are man made anyway,if your pure of heart and good in your everyday life thats what matters,to think that if you don't believe in Jesus Christ you will go to hell is a little naive, to say the least ,more people have died through different beliefs,i doubt god would approve of killing in the name of faith..

I have never heard about this, but I hope it is the truth. I have always thought that jews will go to hell since they don't believe in jesus, but this changes my mind. I think that any jew, true to the jewish religion, will be divinely notified of Jesus. Ariel Sharon is still alive and in a coma. So we will have yet to see.
Also, just thinking, it makes sense that such a followed, and well respected jew would be shown the light by Jesus. Who would disbelieve a man so beloved? (Religiously, and referencing only religious jews).

“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.”
That tells me Christians should be cautious of this Rabbi's prophecies. That is not at all how we believe Jesus will return.
We believe He will return as a supreme being- not as a human again. And of course Jesus would know who He is- He doesn't have some sort of epiphany later realizing He is the Messiah. And He will not reveal Himself to a select group- we are told He will return like lightning in the sky and everyone will see Him and know who He is.

Are you sure there is a messiah?????????
Thought not as you have no proof.
Do you have a link to prove that one such fantasy exist.
So when you find some proof ask me that question again. But...... you wont and you cant. So.....

There's plenty of evidence for God and Jesus. Very, very few people argue that Jesus didn't exist, even many atheists readily acknowledge he did although they will debate His significance (most will say he existed, but was just a really great speaker and nothing more). People who believe could cite mountains of evidence including unquestionable events in our own lives that demonstrate the Lord's intervention, but it will never be enough for those who have already decided not to believe. I don't waste my time trying to convince atheists, the Bible says that God will send a strong delusion to unbelievers in the End Times:
"And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
I believe this explains why so many atheists are so steadfast in their unbelief, they've already been given over to the lie that there is no God. This is just another sign of how late the hour is.

He's a liar.
There is no messiah.
I just read Daniel 9 in the Tanach and in your KJV of the Bilbe and the translation is wayyyyy off. First of all Nowhere in Daniel 9, does it say the Word Moshiah (Messiah)
25 Know therefore and discern, that from the going forth of the word to restore and to build Jerusalem unto one anointed, a prince, shall be seven weeks; and for threescore and two weeks, it shall be built again, with broad place and moat, but in troublous times.
A messiah (Hebrew: מָשִׁיחַ, Modern Mashiaẖ Tiberian Māšîăḥ “anointed”)
כה וְתֵדַע וְתַשְׂכֵּל מִן-מֹצָא דָבָר, לְהָשִׁיב וְלִבְנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִַם עַד-מָשִׁיח נָגִיד--שָׁבֻעִים, שִׁבְעָה; וְשָׁבֻעִים שִׁשִּׁים וּשְׁנַיִם, תָּשׁוּב וְנִבְנְתָה רְחוֹב וְחָרוּץ, וּבְצוֹק, הָעִתִּים.
Then, after the sixty-two weeks, Mashiach will be cut off and have nothing. The people of a prince yet to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary, but his end will come with a flood, and desolations are decreed until the war is over.
