Each day when we daven shmone esrei we ask את צמח דוד עבדך *מהרה* תצמיח. We ask for the geula to come quickly. Do we have a doubt that the Geula will come? Has there ever been a promise from Hashem that hasn't been fulfilled? We know that a day will come when we will have a complete geula with Moshiach. Why don't we wait patiently until Hashem thinks it's time?
Hashem Himself wants us to want and *demand* the geula *immediately*. First and foremost through tfila.
The Rambam defines tfila as follows "שיהא אדם שואל צרכיו שהוא צריך להם". Whenever we feel a lack, we should turn to Hashem and ask. If this is true for our personal physical needs, how much more when we are talking about a need that is both personal and for klal yisroel. And for the benefit of Hashem Himself!
So while we are sure that the geula will eventually come, that's not enough. We need to do everything in our power to demand that Moshiach comes *today*! We *need* it! Our repeated tfillos will bring the geula faster and that is why the Anshei Kneses Hagdola determined we should ask 3x a day.
שבת פרשת אחרי- קדושים תשמ"ה
In zechus of all those who need a refuah shleima!
✨As I was looking through a sefer to find a thought, I saw an interesting tidbet. More than inspiring me to await moshiach's coming now, or to feel his presence in the world, it started me thinking what will be the first thing we do when Moshiach comes,on a very practical level. In a sicha said on Simchas Torah night 5749 the Rebbe says that when Moshiach comes we will all have to say the brocha Shehechiyanu. The halocha is that when you see a friend for the first time after thirty days you say shehechiyanu. קל וחומר when we see Moshiach after such a long golus. After seeing the shehechiyanus made by family members of patients who recovered, such as the Goldstein video yesterday, we can only imagine how that will be.
✨In connection with Shavuos next week. On Shabbos parshas Behar- Bechukosai 5748 the Rebbe discusses how all of our shuls and בתי מדרש which are a מקדש מעט will also come to eretz yisrael, along with the land they stand on. Even shuls which were destroyed, as their stones and earth enabled the yidden to daven and learn and absorbed the letters of the Torah.
Har Sinai will also become part of EY! After all the Torah was given on her and she is the source of all the Torah and Mitzvos in the world.
May we be zoche on this Shavuos to be learning a תורה חדשה which will help us know the hidden and understand Elokus.
I’ve had so many thoughts come into my mind over the last few days. As I am sure you all did. Disclaimer- the following is boich svoros and may be wrong.
Yesterday while on the online farbrengen, we learned a bit of the maamer ואתה תצוה . We learn there how the Moshe of the generation infuses us with light which we in turn enhance bring back to Him.
Thinking about it, the Rebbe doesn’t ‘need’ us. Analagous to how Hashem doesn’t need our mitzvos but gives us the privilege of connecting and partnering with Him. But yet, time and again, the Rebbe continues to invest in us and ask us and beg us to partner with Him. The Rebbe promises us that if we do the shlichus faithfully, we have the koichos and become one with the mishaleiach- an awesome privilege and responsibility. Of course we don’t have any kochos on our own, who are we to begin to imagine that we can accomplish these lofty goals with our limited kochos. But as shluchim of the Rebbe, we are using His kochos to accomplish, and then come back to Him with the outcome. (One of the phrases that Ita’s father used in his frabrengen struck me- he set himself a goal to bring the Rebbe every yid from his country, on a silver platter).
We experienced the same concept with Moshiach. The Rebbe told us that it’s up to us. Obviously we can’t accomplish this on our own, only using the koach that the Rebbe infused in us. The Rebbe is relying on us to use these kochos and come back with results. There is no other option!!
We are 26 years since gimmel tammuz. The כתית is continuous. May we finally see the real true מאור, the real light with which Hashem created the world, with the full light of every yiddishe neshama, all realizing their full potential with אורו של משיח. Now!
This shabbos is Shabbos Chazon. We all know the famous moshol of R' Levi Yitzchok of Berditchev and the father who sewed suits for his son, setting aside the third suit and occasionally showing it to his son as motivation to learn how to take care of his belongings. The nimshol is that Hashem set aside the third beis hamikdosh and is keeping it in shomayim until we deserve it. He shows it to us from afar, once a year, on Shabbos Chazon. This is meant to be motivation for us to improve our ways until the proper behavior becomes our second nature. The Rebbe asks a question; the moshol is understood- the suit itself doesn't influence the boy's behavior in any way, it's just a piece of clothing. The motivation is his father's constant reminders, the fact that the suit has become a prize and is dangling in front of his eyes. But the nimshol doesn't fit. The Bais Hamikdosh itself, with the intense shchina felt there, and the 10 constant miracles wasn't enough to influence the people who lived during the times of the bais hamikdosh and therefore it was ultimately destroyed. So how will being shown the bhm"k once a year, in a concealed way, influence us to change our nature?
The Rebbe explains that 'seeing is believeing' and once we are shown the Bhm"k it is no longer something distant. In the first 2 Bhm"k the yidden had to look on their own, and whatever they saw and absorbed depended on their spiritual level and yiras shomayim. On Shabbos Chazon, Hashem actually 'shows' us the Bhm"k, like a tour guide who points out all the small details which you would have otherwise not noticed on your own. Hashem gives us this vision, it is not dependent on us. Once this absolute surety, resulting from 'seeing' the Bhm"k, is coming from Hashem, it is everlasting, unlimited and not conditional on our personal level of yiras shomaym. Therefore it can directly impact our behavior and effect us to change our nature to a Geuladig nature.
