Rav Arush: Mashiah Coming Soon So Do Teshuva Now Before Gates Close
First on Shirat Devorah and later clarified by R' Lazer Brody:
Rav Shalom Arush, the Rosh Yeshiva of the Breslover Chut Shel Chesed Yeshiva, said that a hidden tzaddik told him that Mashiah will be here soon, and as such, people should start to do Teshuva immediately in order that they will not be stuck with Mashiah coming and not having done Teshuva. When Mashiah comes, the gates of Teshuva will be closed, he said.
(The idea of "no Teshuva after Mashiah" is a complicated concept. It stems from the gemara in Shabbat 151b and the Maharil. See more about it here and here [in Hebrew]).
The tzaddik nistar also told him that there is a harsh decree in heaven that 3 million unarmed Arabs will march on Yerushalayim on the 21st of Elul, which we must pray to be rescinded.
As a result of this news, Rav Arush is taking this seriously enough to have the boys in his Yeshiva doing Kiruv projects in place of afternoon seder.
