Moshiach Chai

I was speaking recently with an elderly chossid at a wedding on Har Tziyon in Jerusalem who said to me “Moshiach is alive right now!”  I challenged him a bit… “well, we’ve heard many such statements from gedolim and mekubalim in the last 5 years or so.  We’re sitting here by the Old City of Jerusalem and you’re telling me Moshiach is alive in our generation, so where is he?”

“Ahh” he said, “in every generation there’s a potential Moshiach.  Every generation has a (spiritual) descendant of Moshe rabaynu.  For Moshiach to come at any time, there must be a Moshiach at every time!  We simply have to be worthy of Moshiach in our time and then he’s fully invested as Moshiach of all time.”

I just smiled.

  1. The Gr"a wrote in his commentary on the Zohar that Moshe Rabbeinu needs to return to this world 50 times for the Geulah to come. The fact that we have seen far more generations pass is because there have yet to be enough worthy candidates.

  2. When all can look into the mirror and see Moshiach, then Moshiach will have come.
