Wisdom in Rabbi Kaduri’s Revelation
James Scott Trimm
ירים העם ויוכיח שדברו ותורתו עומדים
He will uplift the people and prove that His Word and His Torah are valid.
In 1908 Kaduri received a blessing by Yosef Chaim (Yoseph Ḥayyim) (1 September 1832 – 30 August 1909) who was a leading hakham (Sephardic Rabbi), authority on Jewish law (Halakha) and Master Kabbalist, that before his death Kaduri would see the Messiah. In a 1990 meeting ith Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the last Rebbe of the Lubavitch movement, Schneerson also spoke a blessing to Kaduri that Kaduri would not pass from this world until he met the Messiah. This blessing was fulfilled on 9 Cheshvan 5764 (4 November 2003) in a mystical vision when Kaduri spoke with the Messiah and the Messiah revealed His name to Kaduri. Kaduri later told his disciples that the revealed name of the Messiah would be found hidden among his writings.
Rabbi Kaduri subsequently wrote a short note with instructions not to open until one year after his death. The note was penned in Hebrew and signed in the rabbi’s name. It read:
בעניין הר”ת [ראשי תיבות, ע.י.] של משיח. ירים העם ויוכיח שדברו ותורתו עומדים. באתי על החתום בחודש הרחמים [אלול, ע.י] התשס”ה,
Concerning the letter abbreviation of the Messiah’s name, He will lift the people and prove that His Word and His Torah are valid.
This I have signed in the month of mercy (Elul),
Of course the first letter from each word (called notarikon) sin the phrase “He will lift the people and prove that His Word and His Torah are valid.” spells the name Yehoshua ( the long form of the name Yeshua).
There is a great deal of wisdom imbedded in this simple message.
In Yehoshua/Yeshua the People (Am-Yisrael), the Word (the Memra) and the Torah are one.
In the Messiah the People of Israel are uplifted.
In the Messiah the Word and the Torah are upheld.
Also since the definite artical was used in “the People”, any noun could have appeared and still provided the “H” in this place, so the choice of AM should be recognized as important. The word for “people” used by Kaduri is AM, it is a word commonly used in the Tanak to distinguish the AM (people/nation) of Israel from the GOYIM (nations). This is especially clear by the use of the fefinite artical HaAm “THE People” not simply “a people”.
For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the
people (AM) shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations (GOYIM).
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after you:
for where you go, I will go; and where you lodge, I will lodge: your people (AM)
shall be my people (AM), and your Elohim my Elohim:
The Messiah is the personification of the People of Israel also known as the Assembly of Israel or the Body of Messiah, and this had been revealed to Rabbi Kaduri in this simple phrase in which AM-Yisrael is uplifted because they are in Yehoshua/Yeshua.
Rabbi Kaduri’s statement also says that in the Messiah the Word and the Torah are “upheld”, literally are “pillars”. The word for “upheld” literally means “pillars” from the root “to stand” and is closely related to the word Amida (a principle prayer in the siddur) and is the word used in the Zohar and Kabbalah to refer to the Three “Pillars” of the Godhead in the Tree of Life. The Word is in Aramaic MEMRA and has a very deep Kabbalistic meaning (See my series “The Word of YHWH Revealed” parts 1-4 at
http://www.wnae.org/articles.htm ) which had also been revealed to Rabbi Kaduri and which he reveals in his notarikon above in which the Word is in the Messiah and is a “pillar” of the Godhead.
Rabbi Kaduri also reveals that the Messiah upholds the Torah (unlike the Christian “Jesus” who supposedly came to free you from the bondage to the Law).
Kaduri also indicates here that the Messiah and the Torah are one. This is a great truth of the restoration as I hava taught previously:
Rabbi Kaduri also reveals through this phrase, by joining Torah and the Word with a single verb, that they are the same and one with the Messiah as “pillars” of the Godhead.
(Again See my series “The Word of YHWH Revealed” parts 1-4 at http://www.wnae.org/articles.htm )
Also important about the phrase is that it easily falls into two parts. “He shall lift up the People” and “[he will” prove that His Word and His Torah are valid.” The phrase “He shall lift up the People” has the initials which spell YAH while the second phrase could have been written by itself so as to spell YESHUA (rather than YEHOSHUA).
Also the phrase “[he will” prove that His Word and His Torah are valid.” could be translated “[he will” prove that His Word and His Torah are PILLARS.” These signify the two pillars of Nazarene Judaism: Messiah (the Word) and the Torah as we see repeated in Revelation in such passages as Rev. 12:17).
The first word he uses is the verb “lift up”. Any verb could could have been used here, as the initial letter YUD makes the verb an imperfect form, so there is special significance to this verb choice. I believe it indicates that Messiah will come (return) when he literally “lifts up” the People of Israel just as we read in the Ketuvim Netzarim (Matt. 24:30-31; 1Thes. 4:16-17) (This is not a pre-trib “rapture” but a post-trib event that will coinside with the actual return of the Messiah.)
The depth of wisdom in this simple six letter phrase is so great that I am convinced that it was inspired by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and that Messiah actually did appear to Rabbi Kaduri in a vision on Cheshvan 9, 5764 (Nov. 4, 2003) and reveal himself to him.
