(UM) – A Jewish rabbi that can trace his lineage directly back to King David has initiated a project to create a special golden crown for the Messiah.  According to Rabbi Yosef Berger, the coming of the Messiah is drawing near, and so physical preparations should be made for his arrival.  This is yet another example that shows how eager many Jewish people are for the messianic age to begin.  And Rabbi Berger actually believes that the creation of this crown will “hasten the arrival of the king”… Rabbi Berger, a direct

descendant of King David, explained that the founding of the State of Israel and the Six-Day War were overt miracles and that we are today living in the beginning of the messianic era. Creating such a crown, he said, and uniting the 70 nations of the world around the project, will hasten the arrival of the king.“For 2,000 years, Israel has waited for the moshiach (messiah),” Rabbi Berger said. “As a symbol of our belief that this period of waiting has ended, we should prepare a crown, since the first act of the moshiach will be to restore the Davidic Dynasty, which will be visibly unlike any other kingship that has ever existed.” READ MORE
