Geula is in the Air


Taking a look at my stats (from statcounter.com), I noticed that there are a number of people looking for Rosh Hodesh Nissan - Mashiah information.

This is just a snapshot of what certain people were looking for (and yes, I checked, it's coming from various IP addresses).

men,
here we go again. I do not believe those "Gedolim" said any of those things. I do not believe any Responsible Rav would ever flat out say Moshiach is coming on such and such a day. We really need to be MORE careful about saying specifically that he is coming. ive heard this has spread everywhere. People get their hopes upits not right. Im not even talking about the bloggers. Im talking aboutthose who run into the Bais Medrash and say "oh this rav just said on satelite TV that Moshiach is Def coming on this day". As i always say Halvai. I hope very soon we will all be dancing in the streets of Yerushalayim welcoming Moshiach arm in arm. Hashem Yerachaim. AMEN

This is where we disagree. I believe it is SO right for people to get their hopes up.
"Tzipita Lishua?" is asked of people when they reach Beit Din Shamayim.
As I said previously, there's no reason to get discouraged if this is not the proper time. The proper time will be soon regardless.

There was a story that happened last week that caused all the ruckus. A young girl who had recently died reportedly came to her father in a dream saying that on Thursday, the day after a solar eclipse, Mashiach would come. The father went to Rav Kanievsky to relate the story and Rav Kanievsky supposedly told his family (after) to purchase a new suit for Thursday (presumably with which to greet Mashiach). This created the ruckus.

The story was later denied by the family of Rav Kanievsky and explained as a misunderstanding. Rav Kanievsky was asked by an avreich about purchasing a new suit for a wedding, and he answered with a smile and a joke that maybe Mashiach will come and he will also be able to use the suit for that.

That is the source for the balagan, as reported by Mishpacha magazine (Hebrew edition).

Rafi,
Thanks. I issued a correction. Hashem1.net also translated your comment to Hebrew.
