Just want to know if I understood correctly that the Jewish lawyer in the video referred to Jesus as the most abominable figure in Judaism? And can someone translate and/or explain that apparently insulting name he said they use. Thanks.
I'm happy to be called a Christian if the carpenter from Nazareth will accept me as his follower with all my flaws. I don't think it matters to Him if we use His actual Hebrew name or a Greek or other translated version (I have learned a little Hebrew) - it's most likely what in your heart that matters. If being Hebrew and Kosher, etc. was what mattered, He would not have needed to die for us. The Jews who don't accept Him as the Messiah are missing the most important part. I know I can't change anyone's mind though.
Former prime minister Ariel Sharon’s condition deteriorated dramatically on Thursday and he was hanging onto to life at press time.
Sheba Medical Center downgraded Sharon’s status to very critical. Hospital officials said he was in immediate danger of death and that others in his condition would not have lasted as long as he has.
The family of the 85-year-old gathered at the hospital to be with him in his final moments. His sons Omri and Gilad have been by his side since his condition deteriorated on January 1.
“He is fighting and we are here with him all the time,” Omri Sharon told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday afternoon.
Sharon’s vital organs have failed, including his kidneys and his lungs. His blood pressure and heartbeat, which returned to normal on Monday, deteriorated again on Thursday.
Media from around the world gathered at the hospital to deliver the news in case the former prime minister’s death was announced. Police distanced photographers and prevented them from taking pictures of the Sharon family.
Roni Sehayek, who was raised in the Sharon household, came out to the media and said, “The situation is not good” but would not elaborate.
“It is surreal,” said Dalia, a 65-year-old patient at the hospital in Tel Hashomer. “I am used to seeing crowds here awaiting a birth. I am not used to seeing so many people waiting for a death. But an era is ending and this is part of history.”
Sharon has passed.I guess we'll see about this prophecy.edit on CSTSatam6661 by TDawg61 because: (no reason given)
Eight, on the other hand, is symbolic of an entity that is one step above the natural order, higher than nature and its limitations. That's why Chanukah is eight days long—the greatly outnumbered Maccabees' resolve to battle the Greeks wasn't logical or natural. They drew on reservoirs of faith and courage that are not part of normative human nature. They therefore merited a miracle higher than nature – a miracle that lasted eight days – and to commemorate this, we light on Chanukah an eight-branched menorah (click here for the full story). In a similar vein, we circumcise our children when they are eight-day old babies, because the brit milah symbolizes our nation's supernatural and logic-defying covenant with G‑d.
So what is the window on this one before we declare it failed?
"Soon" can be pretty open-ended. After all, Jesus himself told us He was coming soon. So, I guess the question remains, what is soon to a 108-year-old man?
The number eight symbolizes new beginnings. According to Kaballah in the Zohar the number eight signifies this because the eight day was the first day after creation when God returned to work; the week began again.

The Tribulation is supposed to be 7 years. Eight years gives us a year to get the party started, especially with the tetrad coming up starting this year into next. Blood moons, lunar eclipses, are supposed to be of greater significance to Israel/Judaism given how they operate still on the lunar calendar. The tetrads are supposed to mark significant events for Israel. This one has two solar eclipses interspersed with the four blood moons. Solar eclipses are supposed to be signs to the gentiles.
Of course, 8 years gives us a big time frame to wait on, but it will be pretty clear before then whether or not we're on the path toward the Second Coming I think.
Who better to be a real "prophet" than a religious leader who was 108 when he made the prophecy and died.
Rabbi Mordechai Sharabi, one of the greatest Jewish mystics of the previous generation, purportedly said that Kaduri was the only person capable of writing amulets that have the power to bring success, heal, improve fertility or change reality for the better in some other way. In Kabbalistic thought it is believed that amulets tap the powers of demons and spirits and use them to perform miracles. In order to harness these supernatural powers, it is normally necessary to force these demons or spirits to take an oath. This is considered incredibly dangerous since the demons and spirits, once released from the oath, seek retribution. Asked once if he forces an oath on demons when he writes his amulets, Kaduri replied, “God forbid! It is forbidden to force them to take an oath. I only ask nicely. If they want to listen to me, they listen. Most of the time they respect me because I am so old.

December 12, 2004: The Yediot Aharonot, Israel’s most widely circulated newspaper, reports a prediction by Rabbi Kaduri of “great tragedies.” The rabbi further declares these catastrophes will be fulfilled where Jews are going to the East. He also announces to the Israeli press that “the Mashiach [Messiah] is already in Israel.” 5

Kaduri was also quoted as saying the imminent arrival of the Messiah will “save Jerusalem from Islam and Christianity that wish to take Jerusalem from the Jewish Nation— but they will not succeed,

How could a man reported to have spoken with demons, a practice expressly forbidden by God’s Word, be the one through whom God would reveal His Messiah to the Jewish world?

it could just as easily be a sign of Gog/Magog, too. Russia and Iran are cozy these days and things are anything but settled over there.

Just remember, the AC will come upon the scene, and he will fool a lot of people into thinking he is God. He may choose to wear Christ's clothing for all we know, but he will deceive even the elect. Right now, I'd be wary of anyone claiming to be the Savior, especially if everyone else thought he was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
"Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign/mark between me and you throughout your generations (forever); that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you (set you apart for Holy use).". - Ex 31:13
"Little children, it is at the end of the age: and as ye have heard that the spirit of antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the end of the age.
They went out from us (departed from the faith of the Church of God), but they were not of us (in unity and agreement); for if they had been of us (in unity and agreement), they would no doubt have continued with us (stayed in the faith of the Church of God): but they went out (turned against), that they might be made manifest that they were not for us." - 1 John 2 18:19
