Dreaming of Moshiach

Rav Chizkia Shlita

The meaning of the name Chizkia is 'Power from G-d'.

During the time that King Chizkia, zs'l, was king over Israel, the general Sancheriv came to conquer the land. After destroying every town in the country he finally arrived at Jerusalem. His astrologers had informed him that in order to take Jerusalem, he would have to arrive there and attack on that very day, before sunset. If he failed to attack on that day, he would lose the opportunity. He had heard many stories about the invincibility of Jerusalem, and how it could never be taken, so when he arrived there, and saw that the whole city was only a ten minute walk from one side to the other, he burst out laughing and told his generals that he was going to sleep, and that he would attack and destroy the city in the morning. But his advisers had been correct, that very night, a plague, sent by Hashem, hit his army, and its one hundred and eighty five generals and millions of men were all destroyed, and Sancheriv had to run away and hide.

The prophet Yeshayahu, zs'l, informed King Chizkia that it would be proper and fitting for him to sing praises to Hashem for the great miracle that had been done for them. King Chizkia disagreed, he felt that it would be more suitable to learn Torah in honor of the miracle.

This was a great mistake for King Chizkia to make, for really, the singing of the praises of Hashem is on no less a level than Torah learning. However, when the time comes to sing the praises of Hashem, even Torah learning must take second place.

King Chizkia, zs'l, would have become the Moshiach and the redemption would have come immediately but because he did not sing his thanks to HaShem, the opportunity for redemption was lost.

Is it no wonder that the last link for building the Tzion for Devorah HaNevia, a'h, is Rav Chizkia Shlita???? ...More details to come...

Motzei Parshat Bo, Shvat 8-9, I was told that MOSHIACH'S ARRIVAL IS DEPENDED ON DEVORAH HANEVIA, A'H.

במדרש זוטא לשיר השירים פרשה א לפסוק: שיר השירים אשר לשלמה, נדרש: עשר שירות הן. שירת אדם, שירת אברהם, שירת הים, שירת הבאר, שירת משה, שירת יהושע, שירת דבורה, שירת דוד, שירת שלמה דשיר השירים ושירת לעולם הבא [שנאמר] שירו לה' שיר חדש (ישעיה מ"ב י')..."

"עורי עורי דבורה עורי עורי דברי שיר".

ישתבח שמו לעד לנצח נצחים בכל העולמות
Blessed is His name for eternity in all worlds
ברוך אתה ה' הטוב והמטיב, אמן




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
