Individuals of the Rebbe’s caliber do not exist in every generation. G-d put this great soul into this world straight after the Holocaust so that we would learn to deal with the challenges that were created in its aftermath. Jewish vitality was restored, and we have been able to prepare for the true and final Redemption.
On many occasions, the Rebbe said that with coming of the Messiah, the righteous people of all the generations would be revived first, with the raising of the dead. Each one of the Rebbe’s Chassidim, supporters, and admirers are desperately waiting for the realization of his vision of the Final Redemption. Then we will merit seeing the Rebbe once again, in this world, in his physical form.
