[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

RAPID REDEMPTION

[28b top] Gemarah: Once the Temple was destroyed… “May it be rebuilt speedily in our days.”
RambaM: The 10th Parah Adumah (red cow) will come once the Beis Hamikdash is rebuilt “speedily in our days.”
R’ Rosner (quoting Lubavitcher Rebbe): Even though every word in the RambaM’s works are extremely calculated, one should never mention or think about Moshiach without having an intense feeling of yearning and hope that it should come very soon.
Smak: Part of the first Mitzvah of Emunah (belief and faith in G-d), is believing that just as we were redeemed before, Hashem will one day do it again (very soon).

D-E-ep Thoughts: As a basic commandment, we must shift our thoughts to constantly be thinking about and hoping for our ultimate redemption. We should live our lives with focus and goals both personally and communally. Hope and faith in G-d is the basis of our religion which should bring constant ultimate joy to every single person.
