Tzipita Lishua

Last week, I had the chance to read the very short book called Tzipita Lishua, written by the Hafetz Hayim - R' Yisrael Meir Kagan, ZaTza"L. It contains 3 chapters:

Chapter 1 discusses the apparent contradiction between the verses in Parshat Nitzavim which talk about the Geula coming from Teshuva - and the Gemaras in Sanhedrin and Sota, which talk about moral decay preceding the Geula. The Hafetz Hayim seems to say that both are necessary.

Chapter 2 discusses not giving up hope on the Geula happening despite trials and tribulations that may come, whether physical or spiritual.

Chapter 3 discusses the necessity of Torah scholars, but Kohanim in particular, to know the laws of Kodashim and of the Beit Hamikdash since it would not be good to be unprepared for a sudden Geula.

May we learn those laws and merit the Geula - Bimhera Veyamenu, Amen.

The Geula will come when the Holy Nation will be revealed. In the generation of Moshiach, the majority of Jews have souls of the Erev Rav, also among the "religious." These souls did not reach their tikkun in the course of history, which is why they now dominate. As democracy would have it, the Erev Rav rules the nation, and this includes the religious leadership. When finally the Shishim Ribo will rise up, amidst awesome events, they will do Teshuva, and that will be the final tikkun.

BS"D
Every seven years there are eleven months of Din, from Tisha B'av until Tekufat Tammuz, the end of the first week of July. This is when the process of Geula makes essential progress. Shmuel speaks about this cycle of Din in Eruvin 56a, the bottom of the page. We are in such a period - still 50 days to go. Fortunately, Shmuel's condition regarding the Molad does not apply. It did in 5702/5703, and will again be in 5779/5780.

עפ''י חז''ל (ירושלמי ברכות) כך היא גאולתן של ישראל קימעמא קימעמא באה כאילת השחר, כי אשב בחשך ה' אור לי הולך ואור עד נכון היום

I know this is an old post, but I just found it (so it's new for me!), and in the light of current events today, it is very relevant.
I want with all my heart to believe this, that the Geula is imminent. My rational side says that it is fanciful thinking (I've been reading too much XGH).
Please visit my blog, and see if it is worthy enough to add to your blogroll (and vice versa).
