Visions of Redemption

The Rebbe’s desire for the coming of the Messiah was legendary. He lived and breathed the concept of the Final Redemption at every moment of his life. In one of his letters‚ he writes that he visualized the Redemption even before he started learning in Hebrew school.

When the Rebbe accepted the leadership of Chabad (in 5711/1951), the Rebbe announced that the purpose of our generation was to conclude the labor of the exile and bring the Redemption. From here onwards, all he wanted was to strive toward this goal.

Anyone who has followed the Rebbe’s statements throughout the years of his leadership has seen that his predictions have always been fulfilled, down to the final details. On many occasions, his statements may have first appeared as unrealistic, but reality has soon shown that the Rebbe knew exactly what to forecast.

The Rebbe also foretold that the Final Redemption would soon arrive, and that we need to work together on the last preparations to greet the Messiah. The Rebbe called upon every single Jew to prepare for the upcoming Redemption by learning this subject very thoroughly. We should pray for it to happen quickly, and that the pains of Redemption should be minimized as far as possible. As we are now on the brink of the Redemption, we should increase in Torah, mitzvos, and good deeds.

If the Rebbe has been right until now, this last prediction of the coming of the Messiah must surely also be correct, so it is time to get ready to see it fulfilled.
