Geula - Revelations

I thought it would be a refreshing transformation to write about the Geula. What does Geula mean? It comes from the word Giluy גילוי - revelations. When Moshiach arrives, there will be many revelations.

HaRav Shmuel Eliyahu Shlita compiled from various Biblical sources explaining the Geula for our benefit so we can have a deeper understanding why we want so much to merit to live in the days of Moshiach. Enjoy!!![+/-] show/hide text

All the trouble, tests, hardships and sufferings that Am Israel is going thru, its purpose is to purify Am Israel and what is happening in the world, its purpose is to purify and cleanse the world. This is all to cause us, the Jews, to adhere to HaShem. To believe that the salvation and success will only come from HKB'H, nothing else.

No leader, PM, Sultan, King, etc. will rescue us. No political party, no Knesset, no person. When we finally understand this...know that we have purified and all that is left to accomplish is to fill up all the shuls, kollels, yeshivot and daven with devotion.

When Moshiach will arrive, we will be shockingly surpised. He'll come as a surprise as it says in Gemara, Baba Matzi'a: Three things come without prior knowledge, Moshiach, Scorpion, and a discovery find" דברי הגמרא בבא מציעא: "שלושה באים בהסיח הדעת- משיח,עקרב,ומציאה". There will be people when Moshiach will encounter them, it will be like encountering a scorpion. And others will encounter Moshiach as a discovery find.

The first phase is Geula and the second is resurrection. The Geula is the phase where there will not be a ruling government of any sort, and the corrected world will continue in its custom, like during the time of Bet HaMikdash I and II. The second phase is resurrection.

In Talmud Bavli, Masechet Sanhedrin, page 9/2 is says: "שאלה קליאופטרא מלכתא את רבי מאיר. אמרה: ידענא דחיי שכבי (יודעת שיחיו המתים) דכתיב ’ויציצו מעיר כעשב הארץ’. אלא כשהן עומדין, עומדין ערומין או בלבושיהן עומדין? אמר לה: קל וחומר מחיטה. ומה חיטה שנקברה ערומה - יוצאה בכמה לבושין. צדיקים שנקברים בלבושיהן על אחת כמה וכמה." Queen Cleopatra asked Rabbi Meir, a'h: I know that the dead will live again, but will they be resurrected undressed or dressed? Rabbi Meir answered: Like whea, the wheat is buried naked - and blossoms dressed in various ways. Tzaddikim that were buried in their clothing, how much more so they will be dressed at resurrection".

The Gemara explains Rabbi Meir's words of wisdom as follows: The Tzaddikim that will re-live in the future, will be more than what they were prior to their passing in this Olam. When the Tzaddikim passed on (died), the spiritual reality was less than what will be in Tchiat Hametim. And if at the time of their passing, they merited Gan Eden, how much more so they will gain in Tchiat Hametim.

In the higher spiritual reality of days of Moshiach, there will be no illnesses; no sick people; no suffering; no poverty; hospitals will turn into Yeshivot, Soup Kitchens will turn into Shuls (synagogues); Old Age Homes will be obsolete; there will no invalids (handicaps). All will be healthy and strong and will use this energy to learn Torah, pray, and do Avodat HaShem all day, every day.

Death will disappear (death will die forever) from Am Israel. Jews will no longer die, as it says:
"בילע המוות לנצח ומחה השם דמעה מעל כל פנים".

In the days of Moshiach, b'h, we will merit to live in a repaired world. There will great thirst from small to big to know HaShem and to bring HaShem much Nachat (pleasure).

The world will return to operate in a corrected reality, as it was before the sin of Adam HaRishon. The reality will be to want to do HaShem's Will. HaShem will be revealed in the world and the deeds of every Jew and Jewess will reveal HaShem's greatness.

When we will have questions of Halacha, we will be able to ask Melech HaMoshiach, who will be also a Rav, Prophet and of course, King. Melech HaMoshiach will sit from time to time as head of the Sanhedrin. There will be no doubts and the whole Jewish nation will be one, we'll all follow the same Halacha as it says: "כי מציון תצא תורה ודבר ה’ מירושלים"

In the days of Moshiach, the world will learn to live with justice and integrity. The justice will even extend to wild animals.

Understand that Days of Moshiach will be infinity of pleasures, and we will all (b'h) enjoy ourselves with total devotion to HaShem.

We will see with our eyes and hear with our ears and smell with our noses and taste with our tongues and feel with our hands the return of HaShem to Zion.

With prayers from the depth of the heart, all Am Israel will merit to see, speedily and with mercy, the joy of Moshiach and we will all be zoche to return to HaShem completely and hurriedly, amen.
בתפילה מעומק הלב שכל עם ישראל נזכה לראות מהר וברחמים ובשמחה את המשיח ושנזכה כולנו לחזור בתשובה שלמה ומהר.
אמן כן יהי רצון



והיה השם למלך על כל הארץ, ביום ההוא יהיה השם אחד - ושמו אחד ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds אין עוד מלבדו
