Dreaming of Moshiach

Very LOUD Footsteps of Moshiach

The only nation in the world that anticipates Moshiach's arrival is the Jewish nation. We are at the end of this Olam, the end of the 6,000 years has approached. The nations of the world have no problem with this Olam - they have money, fun, vacations, etc. Therefore, they don't anticipate Moshiach's arrival.

Adam HaRishon, zs'l, was born with a very high spiritual level and was like a Malach. But once he ate from the Tree of Knowledge, the freedom of choice entered inside him and he had the choice between the good and bad inclination (the snake). When this happened, a new plan for the world took place. The time for the tikun to cleanse the entrance of the snake inside the Adam is maximum 6,000 years .

As it says, 'דברים ל'): "ומל ה' אלוקיך את לבבך ואת לבב זרעך לאהבה את ה' אלוקיך And HaShem will circumcise your heart and your children's hearts to love HaShem' - How will HaShem circumcise us? HaShem will go back to the original plan, before Adam HaRishon's sin. This is the reason we are the only nation anticipating Moshiach Tzidkenu - waiting for HaShem to give His chosen nation to live in a world that is fixed, without evil inclination and death.

In order for the Tikun to be complete, there are links that need to be attached to reach us till the last link - Moshiach Tzidkenu. What are these links?

First, Eretz Israel was desolate after the destruction of the 2nd Temple. Not one nation was able to flourish in the Holy Land till the Jews returned and rebuild it. Mark Twain famous visit to the Holy Land in 1867, described Palestine as follows:
"..... A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds... a silent mournful expanse.... a desolation.... we never saw a human being on the whole route.... hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country." (The Innocents Abroad, p. 361-362).

This is what is written in the Torah, Leviticus 26:32 'והשמתי אני את הארץ ושממו עליה איביכם הישבים בה 'I will make the land desolate so that your enemies who settle in it will be appalled over it'. Rabbi Aba, zs'l, says in the Talmud Bavli "There is no clearer sign of redemption as when the Jews are returning to Israel and only then, the land will give forth fruits". After 2,000 years, the Holy Land received the Jews back, with loyalty and love, and gives forth the fruits to the Chosen nation.

The second link is Jews returning to Eretz Israel. But the question that bothers most of us - what merit did the secular have to rebuild Eretz Israel? Prophet Zecharia, zs'l, gives us the answer in Perek 9;11: 'גם את בדם בריתך, שלחתי אסיריך מבור, אין מים, בו As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant I have set free your prisoners from the pit in which is no water.' The Rambam, zs'l, translated this pasuk 800 years ago that the secular will merit in the merit of keeping the Brit Milah.

This Mitzvah is the most dangereous Mitzvah to keep - Even though the secular left the Torah, (water is Torah) and no matter how secular, even Tommy Lapid (anti-Jewish Knesset member and Jewish), went to an Orthodox Rabbi to give his son a Brit Milah!!!

But the question still remains, why do they merit to be leaders in Eretz Israel? When Titus wanted to destroy the Bet HaMikdash, the secular Jews helped him break the walls of Yerushalayim. These people are now reincarnated and are leaders and they do the Tikun - the same people that destructed the holy walls are now building the walls. All this is said in the Pasuk we say 9 Av - 'כי באש הצתה ובאש אתה עתיד לבנותה, For with fire you ignited it, and with fire you're going to build it.'

The third link is Jews returning to Judaism - big Teshuva movements. And this was prophesized by Amos, zs'l, 8;11: הנה ימים באים נאם אדני יהוה והשלחתי רעב בארץ לא רעב ללחם ולא צמא למים--כי אם לשמע את דברי יהוה Behold, the days come, saith GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of HaShem'.

The final link is written in the last sefer, Prophet Malachi, zs'l, last chapter and last pasuk 3:24: הנה אנכי שלח לכם, את אליה הנביא:לפני, בוא יום יהוה, הגדול, והנורא HaShem is sending Eliyahu HaNavi before the Great Day. What is the great day? According to the Rambam, it is Gog uMagog.

There are 2 prophecy scenerious written in the Sfarim of how Moshaich will arrive. If we link to HaShem with Teshuva, it will be as it is written in Sefer Yechezkel HaNavi, zs'l, Moshiach will arrive the merciful way. The other way is written in Sefer Zecharia, zs'l,- if we don't do Teshuva, over 80% of the Jews will not survive. As it says in Malachi 3;24: פן אבוא והכיתי את הארץ חרם" Then you will again see the difference between righteous people and wicked people, between the one who serves God and the one who doesn't serve him'.

The Zohar HaKadosh, zs'l, says that Moshiach must come before 6,000 years - Erev Shabbat, Friday night eve. ערב in Gematria is 272. 6,000 minus 272 is 5,728. We are in the year 5767 - that means, we are already 39 years active in Erev Shabbat.

What happened Tishrei 5,728 תשכ"ח, when Erev Shabbat began (lunar calendar 1967)? The Six day war. Just like we prepare for Shabbat by taking a shower, preparing special food, dressing in our nicest closing - the same thing happened in Eretz Israel. The Kotel was returned to the Jews, the holy land miracleously expanded, taking over land in Egypt, Syria, and Jordan - all within 6 days.

Why was it called the six day war? It could have been called the War of Independence or the War of Miracles. It was called the SIX day war because it is a remez (clue) that we entered Erev Shabbat, the 6,000 years. This war was like taking a shower before Erev Shabbat, a half a million Jews returned to Judaism after this war - cleansing the impurities.

But what happened? Those who did not cleanse for Shabbat said the war was won with their own strength. For 7 years, they boasted how strong the IDF is and how powerful Israel is. They forgot HaShem. After these 7 years, the Yom Kippur war broke out and Israel suffered a great loss.

When did HaShem create Moshiach? Before the 6 days of creation - Bereshit 1;2: 'ורוח אלהים, מרחפת על פני המים The Spirit of God was hovering over the water'. The Midrash says that the spirit of God is Moshiach. The Chida, zs'l, says מרחפת (hovering) in gematria value is 728, same as Erev (Shabbat).

A person can ask a very big question - everything looks perfect, so why are the Jews still not doing Teshuva, why do they still think that money is god? To understand the answer, we must look at the first redemption. Moshe Rabenu, zs'l, is commanded by HaShem to redeem His nation but Pharoah refuses to let the Jews go and gives them harder work to do. Moshe Rabenu returns to HaShem and asks Him, "למה הרעתה לעם הזה למה זה שלחתני Why have you done evil to this people? why have you sent me?'. The Kli Yakar, zs'l, explains that Moshe Rabenu complained to HaShem that wouldn't have it been better to send him to Pharoah and within a month, release Am Israel? HaShem answers him that thru the pain, Am Israel will be released and redeemed. Just like a candle that burns out, just as it burns out, the light gets stronger. This is the stage we are in presently. Thru the pain, we will be redeemed.

The Sitra Achra feels that this is the end - this is why they are making our life miserable - pain.

It says Moshiach will come either when the whole generation is pure and in Teshuva or just the opposite, דור שכולו חייב או דור שכולו זכאי. The Gaon of Vilna, zs'l, says that the meaning is not the whole generation but actually, each person will be judged either as pure or not. Each person will be judged separately, and that's why it says that 1 or maximum 2 from each family will survive to greet Moshiach Tzidkenu.

The wicked help us to do Teshuva. The wicked Sitra Achra places in front of us impure choices - TV, newspapers, magazines, etc. These offerings go so impure and dirty, that many people took out these negative effects out of their homes and minds. The bad people got worse and those who want to glue to HKB'H, the bad unintentionally help them remove the impurities (snake) from them.

There will be another Aliya to Eretz Israel - the second and final Aliya to Eretz Israel.

And then the final link - payback time to the nations of the world, The final Judgment! ונתן יהוה אלהיך את כל האלות האלה על איביך ועל שנאיך אשר רדפוך God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, that persecuted thee.

Now that you understand that you are living in the final era of Galut into Geula, lucky you are to be alive to join HaShem's side and greet Moshiach Tzidkenu.
