Rav Zissholtz: 2 Geula Statements Heard Recently

(h/t Sod1820)

Rav Zissholtz on Radio 2000 said the following (paraphrased):
  • I don't promise anything and anything can change at any moment, but I heard the following 2 statements:
    • Rav Chaim Kanievsky Shlit"a asked for people to prepare for him a new white garment.  
      • Rav Zissholtz doesn't think that this refers to a kittel, which doesn't fit the description as it is too thin.  He must have meant something more substantial.
      • Rav Zissholtz rhetorically asks, "In whose honor would Rav Kanievsky need such a garment?"
    • Rav [Yosef] Nissan Shlit"a from Ramat Gan said that the Geula will come before Pesah and that the Beit Hamikdash will descend from Shamayim after the Seder night.
      • Rav Zissholtz prefaced this statement by saying that there are other Tzaddikim working hard to delay this in order to save other Jews.   (He said that these other Tzaddikim want "the Jews from Dizengoff, Herzliya, and Eilat to join the bandwagon, and if what Rav Nissan said actually occurs, they will be off the wagon.")
      • Rav Zissholtz also said that Rav Nissan is someone who doesn't generally talk about this.
      • The presenter later noted that Rabbanit Kook Tlit"a said the same.
  • Also Rav Dov Kook Shlit"a said that anyone who doesn't do Teshuva now is not considered a transgressor, but rather is considered crazy [for seeing what's going on in the world and not being moved to do Teshuva].
    • Rav Zissholtz said that everyone has what to do Teshuva for.

Such dangerous comments about Geula. Why dont we ever learn? Can you imagine people during ww2 who faced far graver threat, they would have had a greater right to say what all these people are saying now and they would still be wrong

UX-log, I'm sympathetic to your opinion, but I still totally disagree.
1) All statements were said with a caveat (aka בתורת שמא).
2) These statements give us much needed חיזוק right now.
3) These statements increase our belief in the coming of Mashiah, which in and of itself hastens his coming.
4) The times now are MUCH more auspicious for Geula than 75 years ago for many reasons.

1) The next verse continues כִּי־הִנֵּה ה' יֹצֵא מִמְּקוֹמוֹ לִפְקֹד עֲוֺן יֹשֵׁב־הָאָרֶץ עָלָיו וְגִלְּתָה הָאָרֶץ אֶת־דָּמֶיהָ וְלֹא־תְכַסֶּה עוֹד עַל־הֲרוּגֶיהָ, for lo! The L-RD shall come forth from His place To punish the dwellers of the earth For their iniquity; And the earth shall disclose its bloodshed And shall no longer conceal its slain.

Rashi says ממדת הרחמים למדת הדין, from the attribute of mercy to the attribute of [strict] justice.

Right now, we are seeing Hashem's justice in the world!

2) Rav [Yosef] Nissan Shlit"a from Ramat Gan said that the Geula will come before Pesah and that the Beit Hamikdash will descend from Shamayim after the Seder night.

The verse says וְאָכְלוּ אֶת־הַבָּשָׂר בַּלַּיְלָה הַזֶּה צְלִי־אֵשׁ וּמַצּוֹת עַל־מְרֹרִים יֹאכְלֻהוּ, they shall eat the flesh that same night; they shall eat it roasted over the fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs.

Kitzur Baal Haturim says ד' במסו' ב' בעניני דפסח ואידך אהרן ובניו יאכלוהו בענינא דמלואים מה התם נצטוו ומפתח אוהל מועד לא תצאו הכא נמי ואתם לא תצאו איש מפתח ביתו ואידך כי מאספיו יאכלוהו דאתקש גאולה אחרונה לגאולה ראשונה, "You shall eat it": There are four of this word in the mesora tradition, and two of them are concerning the topic of Pesach. Elsewhere it is written, "Aharon and his sons shall eat it", concerning [the ordination of the Kohanim]. Just like there, they were commanded "And you shall not go out from the entrance of the Tent of Meeting", so too here, "And you, no man should go out of the entrance of his house". And elsewhere, "But those who harvested shall eat it" - that it connects the final redemption with the initial redemption.

This Pesach will be the second time in history that everyone will be having their seider in quarantine! Rav [Yosef] Nissan's statement is a very big possibility!

Adding his post, Tzadik Rabbi Eliezer Berland in his latest message to his followers delivered on Friday, March 27, 2020, Erev Shabbat of Parsha Vayikrah:

The Rav says that by leil seder (seder night) the plague will stop!

Let's wait

A unity government in Israel---achdus---to turn things over to Mashiach might be a key to this. The key figures would be Netanyahu (give), Gantz (full) and Peretz (Mashiach is a descendant of Peretz).
