The now 82 years old
P.M. Sharon suffered a series of two
debilitating strokes within a few months after he ordered the forced removal of
God’s chosen people from their Covenant land.
By January 2006, the then 77 year old
Ariel Sharon lay unresponsive in a coma and continues to be comatose, to
There were a multitude of medical
setbacks in the early stages of Sharon's four 3/4years illness that even a very
young, healthy man would have succumbed to.
It is indeed extraordinary that Ariel
Sharon has survived for these past four ¾ years in a
From a medical standpoint, the fact that
he even survived all the multiple potentially fatal medical complications,
experienced early on, is nothing short of a miracle.
Following is a rundown on the many
medical complications that from a medical perspective, would/should/could have
ordinarily been fatal.
P.M. Sharon apparently initially had a
embolitic (traveling clot) stroke caused by an atrial septal defect (ASD)
commonly known as a "hole" in his heart.
Note that an ASD is usually a congenital
(at birth) defect that is usually surgically repaired in early childhood. At
that time, Sharon was preparing to have cardiac evaluation for the repair of the
Granted that the medical field was not
as advanced in Sharon's youth, but one would think that the ASD would have
necessitated repair prior to the age of 77.
Ironically, Sharon had his first stroke
the night before he was going to undergo a cardiac catheterization for
evaluation of his ASD.
The ASD was purported to be the cause of
the first stroke which caused an embolus (clot) that traveled to and obstructed
his cerebral arteries in his brain.
Apparently the anticoagulant (blood
thinner)that was used to treat this first stroke in mid December 2005 helped
precipitate Sharon's second and more debilitating stroke that occurred on
January 2, 2006.
Sharon’s second stroke resulted from a
blood vessel rupturing and bleeding into the cranium
to the increased intracranial pressure from the massive hemorrhaging (bleeding)
into his skull from this second (hemorrhagic) stroke, Sharon afterwards
underwent two lengthy neurosurgeries to control the bleeding.
The first neurosurgery(brain
surgery)lasted SEVEN hours and the second neurosurgery lasted FOURTEEN
After the second prolonged 14-hour
surgery, Sharon was placed on a ventilator and some reports suggested that he
was suffering from paralysis in his lower body, while others said he was still
fighting for his life."
Note that about 30% to 60% of people
with an intracerebral hemorrhage (brain bleed) die (as was Sharon's second
those who survive long enough to reach an emergency room, bleeding usually has
stopped by the time they are seen by a doctor.
Many people with ruptured aneurysms or
subarachnoid hemorrhages usually do not even survive long enough to reach a
hospital. Of those who do, about 50% die within the first month of treatment.
Therefore, Sharon surviving the second
stroke was against incredible odds to begin with. The complications following
that he survived as well are beyond incredible from a medical
The month following the hemorrhagic
stroke,in February 2006, Sharon had to undergo two more surgeries for bowel and
subsequent surgeries the following month. On 11 February 2006, doctors performed
emergency surgery to remove 50 cm of his large intestine that had become
necrotic, probably because of a blood clot. On 22 February, he underwent an
additional procedure to drain excess fluid from his stomach, discovered during a
July 2006, Sharon’s condition worsened with his kidneys starting to fail so he
was put on hemodialysis and he also was treated for a blood infection
By August 2006, he was diagnosed with
double pneumonia which was treated and resolved.
The following November in 2006, Sharon
was back again in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) being treated for a cardiac
(heart) infection which too, was successfully resolved.
To recap, Ariel Sharon was a 77 year old
obese man with a cardiac defect experiencing both an embolitic and a hemorrhagic
stroke within a 3 week period.
to the massive uncontrolled bleeding in his brain from the second stroke he
underwent first, a SEVEN hour surgery and then a FOURTEEN hour surgery that left
Within a month, he underwent yet another
surgery, this time removing necrotic gut (part of the large intestine had died
from a clot).
Shortly after that surgical
intervention, there was another surgery required, this time on his stomach for
Next medical setback, he started
hemodialysis for failing kidneys and also had a blood infection
then had double pneumonia and later a cardiac (heart) infection which were all
resolved with IV antibiotics.
So within less than a year after his TWO
strokes, Ariel Sharon had FOUR surgeries, a bout of double pneumonia, a blood
infection (sepsis), a heart infection and renal (kidney) failure requiring
Any redundancy of the facts is in order
to firmly establish the case of the many serious complications suffered by
Sharon. Each one of these serious medical problems could be fatal in itself.
well known, the more ill and compromised a patient, the less reserves there are
to fight infections.
P.M. Sharon’s weakened state of health, it is incredible that he was able to
survive such serious infections and other complications.
Since, the last reported complication
back in November 2006, it appears as though Ariel Sharon has been status quo for
the past 4 years and still in a coma. It is unclear if he is still paralyzed or
on a ventilator(breathing machine).
Bearing in mind that patients who are
inactive due to being bedridden are more at risk for pneumonia and bedsores
(which themselves can lead to infection and clots).
The fact that Sharon is already
predisposed to clot formation (with a history of the previous stroke and
intestinal clot) it is surprising that with his inactivity that there have been
no further complications from clots. Note that one clot to the lungs or to the
brain can be instantly fatal.
It appears that it may be God's grace
and divine planning that Ariel Sharon ever survived to begin with as well as the
fact that he has no had no further serious complications since November
According to Rabbi Kaduri, Ariel
Sharon’s demise will usher in the coming of Yeshua, the Messiah. >From this
perspective it appears as if God may be allowing Ariel Sharon's remarkable
survival for HIS purposes.
Just as Methuselah’s, the oldest man to
ever live, death was prophesied to usher in worldwide judgment with the flood of
Noah; so may Ariel Sharon’s death usher in the return of the Messiah and the
coming judgment of the upcoming Tribulation period.
Methuselah was the grandfather of Noah
and together they attempted to persuade the wicked people of the earth to return
Methuselah was the last human being to
have personally known Adam, who had personally known and walked with
Methuselah and the others before him
were taught and could "know" about God directly from Adam. Noah was the first
one in Adam’s lineage to not have known and been able to learn about the things
of God directly from Adam.
As such, Noah did not have the first
hand account by which to have been taught; so Noah was the first to believe
solely by faith.
planned to bring the flood of Noah after all the men who walked in the ways of
the Lord had been removed.
Methuselah lived during the construction
of Noah's ark but died right before the flood as God had promised him that he
would not be killed with the unrighteous.
The name Methuselah translates,“When he
is dead it shall be sent”; meaning ‘the deluge' of judgment would come after his
Therefore, Methuselah's death marked the
end of mankind's grace period and the coming of the Great Flood.
Perhaps it will be that after the
announcement of Ariel Sharon's death, those who are alive and living for the
Lord, will not die but be raptured and be removed; just as Methuselah died
before the flood so that he would not be "killed with the unrighteous" in the
coming "flood of judgment."
Just as Methuselah’s death indicated the
coming literal flood of judgment so might Ariel Sharon’s death signify the
coming flood of judgment upon an unrepentant world.
Rabbi Kaduri’s prophesy of the coming of
the Messiah after the death of Ariel Sharon may perhaps equate to the meeting of
the readied Bride with the Lord in the air (Rapture).
Conversely, the Jews, of whom many will
accept the coming antichrist, may think that Kaduri's prophecy referred to the
coming antichrist as being their Messiah.
Is Ariel Sharon our modern day
Methuselah? Only time will tell. But in the meantime, may we remember to pray
for the salvation of Ariel Sharon and for the many not covered by the blood of
the Lamb and for the peace of Jerusalem!
