Turmoil in the world is increasing. Suddenly we are struck with the possibility of a pandemic, in the midst of an economic meltdown while world politics are in flux, the Middle East is a mess and a mad leader is going after nuclear weapons with the stated intention of slaughtering the Jews. In the countries where the majority of the Jewish people live, Muslim anti-semitic hate is on the rise.
Must be signs of geulah!!!!
One cannot know the Creator's plan regarding Moshiach, for 'the heart has not revealed (this matter) to the mouth.' (Midrash Tehillim 9, Kohelet Rabbah 12:10) The way in which he will come is hidden from ALL living beings. The Ran explains that just as the time of his coming is unknown, so too the manner of his coming is unknown, whether through manifest miracles or miracles hidden behind the guise of nature. (Derashot HaRan 11) Rabbi Teichtal, hk"m
Be wise and take precautions against this time of turmoil. And it's ALWAYS a good time for teshuva and Eretz Yisroel. There may be many signs that lead us to hope and believe it's very close, but ultimately the geulah remains hidden.
