Eliyahu HaNavi and Moshiach

Rav Mekubal Mordechai Eliyahu Shlita recently spoke about the watch he received from the Baba Sali, zs'l. "I'm careful not to touch the watches", says the Rav, "I don't open the watches, I am afraid to open it. It is placed in a safe location. When the time will get to the hour... it is the sign that the Geula is beginning. The watches have a mind of their own - sometimes moving and then stopping. The gold watch is placed underneath the silver watch. Silver is Rachamim (mercy) and gold is Din (judgment). I want the mercy to control the judgment and HKB'H will speed up the Geula."

The Rav also received the Baba Sali's robe with specific instructions that this robe should be worn to greet Moshiach Tzidkenu. This strengthens redemption believers that Moshiach is very very close, within the lifetime of Rav Mordechai Eliyahu Shlita.

But Rav Mordechai Eliyahu Shlita is lacking patients. When he was recently asked in a shiur when the redemption will begin already, he mumbled. He wasn't upset with the person asking the question, but about Moshiach. "My feeling is that when I see Moshiach I'll ask him: Why are you so delayed? Why are we waiting for you? Every year we wait, wait, wait...".

Then the Rav changed the subject to speak about Eliyahu HaNavi Zachut Latov. "We will tell Eliyahu HaNavi, where were you? We made the Cup of Eliyahu, and where were you? Come and inform us of the Guela, till when?... It is very possible that Eliyahu HaNavi will not want to answer me. What will I do? I'll take a small boy to ask him". The Rav suggested to take a young boy to ask Eliyahu HaNavi question from the Talmud, specifically where it's TEKO (ראשי תיבות: תישבי [אליהו הנביא] יתרץ קושיות ובעיות - Roshei Tevot of 'Eliyahu HaNavi will explain). "Nu, Nu, Eliyahu HaNavi, explain this TEKO".

The Rav says that when Eliyahu HaNavi will arrive together with Moshiach, he will not stand distributing dollars because he is not an ADMOR (Rebbe). He will not have the time to answer about the delay, because he will be occupied with his function to clarify Judaism, who is a Jew.

Eliyahu HaNavi never physically passed away and physically attends every Brit of a Jew. The Rav said that Eliyahu HaNavi will sit and Jews will pass in front of him . Eliyahu HaNavi will identify each Jew thru his Brit Mila that he physically attended. Those that will try to 'trick' and show certificate of Judaism will be rejected.
