Moshiach Yom Yom: 21-27 Iyar

21 Iyar: Revealing the future Beis Ha’Mikdash, applicable to every Jew
It must be announced and publicized that we are currently in a unique time (and place), with only one thing left to do: A person is obligated to quote his teacher, so, as the Rebbe, my father-in-law, said, “Stand, all of you, ready to build the future Beis HaMikdash with the coming of Dovid, King Moshiach.”

Thus, every Jew has the obligation to bring about and reveal the future Beis HaMikdash, which is actually built and perfected in Heaven and only needs to descend and be revealed down below immediately.

This applies to every Jew, men, women, and children, “With our youth and with our elders, etc., with our sons and with our daughters,” from the greatest of the great to the smallest of the small, with no division of sect, group, or party, etc. This is not a topic that applies to a particular type or nusach, etc; it is applicable to every Jew.

22 Iyar: Why Don’t we see it?
One can ask, “Why don’t we see the actual revelation of ‘And Hashem appeared to him?’” The answer is: 1) His inability to perceive it does not change the reality. Indeed, the Rebbe Rayatz described a parable of wise men traveling in a wagon hitched to horses. The wise men speak words of wisdom, while the horses think about hay. Now, albeit that the horses think about mere hay, the fact remains that the wise men in the wagon speak words of wisdom.

2) The actual revelation of “And Hashem appeared to him” will take place with the true and complete Redemption through Moshiach Tzidkeinu.

23 Iyar: Every Last Prayer For Redemption Is Needed
In Chapter 11 of Igeres HaTeshuva, the Alter Rebbe explains that when a Jew asks something of Hashem in a particular bracha, this request is certainly fulfilled, “With not even the slightest shadow of a doubt in the world...for when in doubt about whether to say a bracha we do not say it for fear of saying a bracha in vain.” Therefore, the requests and prayers of Jews for the Redemption are fulfilled.

Hashem accepts the prayers and requests of the Jewish people for Redemption throughout the generations. As a result, we will soon have the Redemption! In other words, the prayers for the Redemption of Jews throughout the generations are connected to each other, until they finally achieve the actual Redemption (not just in the spiritual sense). The actual Redemption is achieved by the requests and prayers throughout the generations, for if even one prayer would be missing, the Redemption would be delayed another moment, ch’v.

24 Iyar: Bringing Moshiach Is Not Considered “In Order To Receive A Reward”
Some people wrap themselves in a silken cloak and ask how it is possible that shlichus could be done in order to bring Moshiach when this avoda is “not for the sake of Heaven,” and is “in order to receive a reward.” ...

The answer to this can be found in the Rambam about the promises of the Torah regarding material abundance: “If you go in My statutes etc., and I will give your rains in their proper times, etc.” According to the Rambam, this is not in the category of reward, for “We were promised in the Torah...that everything that prevents us from fulfilling the Torah will be taken away… Hashem will endow us with all good things that support us in our observance of Torah...so that we will not have to be occupied all our days with the needs of the body, but we will be able to sit freely to study wisdom and do mitzvos.” ...

The work and effort to bring Moshiach is not in the category of “in order to receive a reward,” but is a necessary prerequisite to remove the obstacles, giving us the opportunity to fulfill the Torah and mitzvos in the most perfect way.

25 Iyar: Our Torah And Avoda Count
To illustrate how great is the responsibility for everyone to strive in serving Hashem through Torah and mitzvos: If one’s service is lacking, not only is the “I will dwell within them” lacking, but it affects the manifestation of the Divine presence for all the Jewish people and the entire world.

Conversely, we see the wondrous advantage in the service of Torah and tefilla of every single Jew and its accomplishment in the world: It hastens the time when sacrifices will be able to be brought, “according to the commandments of Your will” in the third Beis HaMikdash, which will descend and be revealed speedily in our days.

26 Iyar: The Moshiach Of One’s Inner Soul Is Already Revealed
There is a shlichus for a person to communicate to himself and to others, with words that come from the heart, that the Moshiach of his inner soul is already revealed. By speaking words that come from the heart, they will enter the heart and have their effect, to the extent that Moshiach will be revealed and the yechida will be revealed with the coming of Moshiach Tzidkeinu and the true and complete Redemption – immediately.

27 Iyar: The Baal Shem Tov and the Alter Rebbe paved the way to Moshiach
Since the Alter Rebbe considered himself the Baal Shem Tov’s grandson, he obviously had two preeminent qualifications: 1) He was the expression of the Baal Shem Tov’s atzmius, and  2) he was the completion of the Baal Shem Tov, i.e., the intent of the Baal Shem Tov’s teachings is completed through the teachings of Chabad Chassidus.

Chassidus Chabad also elevates Chagas (chesed, g’vura, tiferes) and Nehym (netzach, hod, yesod, malchus). The accomplishment of Chassidus Chabad is that even simple people, who have no connection with understanding and comprehension, can achieve lofty heights, even higher than they would be able to reach through other types of Chassidus...

The Alter Rebbe integrated all this within Chassidus Chabad: Through learning Chassidus, one approaches lofty intellectual concepts at the height of the “hidden light” and even higher. Moreover, this revelation manifests itself within the intellect of the G-dly soul as light settles in a vessel, to the extent that even the animal soul understands. Indeed, to the extent that “the glory of Hashem will be revealed, and [even] all flesh will see,” with the imminent coming of Moshiach Tzidkeinu.
