Three weeks ago, I gave an emuna lesson entitled The Megilla of Geula, saying that all the events occurring today will come together to be one big Megilla, that of our final Geula, or redemption.
This morning, I heard from a close friend and a Gerrer Chassid who was with the Gerrer Rebbe shlit'a (image, left) on Purim, that the Gerrer Rebbe (Rabbi Yaakov Aryeh Alter shlit'a) said that we our now in the midst of the Megilla of Geula: in the original Yiddish, he said, Mir halt mitl arein in di Megilla fun Geula.
The Gerrer Rebbe shlit'a is a tzaddik of very few words.
Someone then asked the Rebbe, velechen perek, which chapter are we? The Rebbe didn't answer.
Anyone in Israel that can't smell the imminent Geula and the coming of Moshiach needs an ear, nose and throat checkup. Very big things are about to happen, as we see that the world is changing all around us.
The two keywords for navigating today's stormy waters are emuna and kedusha, faith and holiness. Very soon, all the amenities of this world won't be worth the skin of an onion.
