I Do Get Interesting Email
I received this from one of my dear readers (a friend), which was full of very interesting bits of information, that I thought I would pass on to you:
Rabbi, on August 2, 2016 you mentioned (http://bit.ly/2aMPeH6) that a 13-year-old boy with autism* said that Moshiach is definitely coming this year (5776), on aFriday (and that we just have to wait and be ready [doing what we must to prepare ourselves, Teshuvah, Tefillah, Torah Study, helping others and the commandments, etc. (see Yalkut Shimoni, Tehillim 106:865 “פעמים”)]
Did your readers miss THIS STORY?
Rabbi, the kid isn't lying. Even though the Novi says, “For the L-rd G-d will not do anything unless He has revealed His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos3:7). Yet, “From the time the Beis HaMikdash (Jewish Temple in Jerusalem) was destroyed, prophecy was taken away from prophets and handed over to the shotim [mentally unbalanced people]” (Bava Basra 12b).
Therefore, the Zohar says, “When the days of the Messiah approach, even children will be able to discover secrets of wisdom and through them be able to calculate the end of time, then it will be revealed to all” (Parshas Vayeira 118a).
This 13-year-old autistic boy fits what the Zohar is saying! However, "... the specific hour of his ‘coming’ of Moshiach does not appear to be known to anyone, even the Moshiach himself” (Zohar 2, 9A) [See http://bit.ly/2cmq48s, page 4 and 2].
In 2011, Rav Chaim Kanievsky was asked about the significance of developments in the Middle East. His response was, “People have come to me and said that it’s ‘Gog and Magog.’ We cannot know. But it’s probable that any unrest that G-d creates shows that the Messiah is coming and that we must begin to prepare for it and become stronger” (See Mishpacha Jewish Family Weekly, February 24, 2011, In Quotes).
The boy said "we just have to wait." Rav Chaim Kanievsky said on June 15, 2016, that Moshiach is already here. He will reveal himself very soon. http://bit.ly/29QNu3L As the Yalkut Shimoni says, “Rabbi Yitzchak stated, ‘The year that Melech HaMashiach will be revealed…” (See Yeshayahu 60:499, for details). On Motzei Shabbos of July 20, 2016, he said that the only thing that we need to do now is wait; as in, anticipate the imminent arrival of the Moshiach (http://bit.ly/2ahs9l2). As we say every morning, “By the end of Days He (i.e. Hashem) will send our Messiah, to redeem those longing for His final salvation”(Birchas HaShachar “ישלח לקץ...”).
*Sometimes the words of our Gedolim are too good to be true. However, the Gemara assures us, “The tzaddik decrees and Hashem fulfills” (Kesubos 103b). It also says, “He will do the will of those who fear him” (Tehillim 145:19).
Thank you very much for all this effort to give us good information.
