Pesah 5771 Thoughts

As Arutz Sheva points out, this year is 3323 years since Yetziat Mitzrayim.  I checked gezageza (which some antivirus apps won't let you into) and the following verse that talks about the Gog Umagog war has the gematria of 3323:
והתגדלתי, והתקדשתי, ונודעתי, לעיני גוים רבים; וידעו, כי אני יהוה
Thus will I magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself, and I will make Myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
This expression of "וידעו, כי אני השם" is mentioned often in Yetziat Mitzrayim too (e.g. here), but it refers to only Egypt getting that knowledge.  This time, the whole world will be educated with this knowledge.  While there was worldwide trembling in Yetziat Mitzrayim (אז נבהלו אלופי אדום), it will not be on the same level as the education the nations will receive in the future.

The Hagadda says:
 ובמורא גדול--זה גילוי שכינה, כמו שנאמר "או הניסה אלוהים, לבוא לקחת לו גוי מקרב גוי, במסות באותות ובמופתים ובמלחמה וביד חזקה ובזרוע נטויה, ובמוראים גדולים:  ככול אשר עשה לכם ה' אלוהיכם, במצריים--לעיניך"

How does the verse of או הניסה prove revelation of the Shechina? Perhaps, any time a nation is taken out of another nation, it implies revelation of the Shechina.

We are seeing the Jewish people coming out of Edom and returning to our homeland of Eretz Yisrael slowly, but surely - little by little - קימעה קימעה, as they say. Because it is going so slowly, the other nations don't call it "a miracle" - they consider it natural. However, when Mashiah comes and everyone will be gathered, that's when it will be called "a miracle" by all. Then, it will be "או הניסה". Then, it will be "ככול אשר עשה לכם ה' אלוהיכם, במצריים--לעיניך". Then, it will be truly be a revelation of the Shechina.

May we merit very soon to have the nations know Who Hashem is. May we merit to skip the troubles of the Gog Umagog war and go straight to והתגדלתי, והתקדשתי, ונודעתי, לעיני גוים רבים; וידעו, כי אני יהוה.  May we merit very soon to witness the miracles that we saw in Egypt 3323 years ago, as it says:

כִּימֵי צֵאתְךָ, מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם, אַרְאֶנּוּ, נִפְלָאוֹת.
As in the days of thy coming forth out of the land of Egypt will I show unto him marvellous things.

Bimhera Veyameinu, Amen.

"the Gog Umagog war has the gematria of 3323"

3+3+2+3 = 11

It seems to me this number is extremely significant. Rebbetzin Jungreis talks a lot about this. Also, I watched a lecture on the hiddeness of Purim online by Rabbi Mizrachi where he states that the gematria of Adon is 65.

6+5 = 11

AMEN. FOR REDEMPTION NOW.
MAY THE WHOLE OF THE 70 NATIONS KNOW HASHEM AND ISRAEL. HASHEM'S BLESSING TO US, A LIGHT TO ALL NATIONS. THE NUMBER 11 IS QUOTED EXTENSIVELY IN SHIRAT DEVORAH.
