Moshiach is right on our doorstep. The prophets tell us that the final battle for Moshiach and Geula will begin on Mount Zion; Mount Zion is the site of King David's holy gravesite. The Catholic Church and the Greek Orthodox Church are claiming this holy place for themselves. The Pope has laid tons of cash on the tables of Israel's highest officials to further their sinister designs. Earlier this week, the xtian idolators tried to enter King David's holy gravesite with their incense and crosses (image #1, below) to hold their mass. These are the very emissaries of the Dark Side, trying to delay Geula and Moshiach while defiling holiness, Heaven forbid.
Hashem kindled a holy spirit in my beloved teacher, Rav Shalom Arush, who stood up like a lion to protect King David's gravesite against the profane intruders. He came with a Torah scroll and prayed there (image #2, below). When the young men of our yeshiva tried to prevent the idolators from entering the holy gravesite area, they were carried off and arrested by Border Police (images 3 & 4, below). Ultimately, Rav Shalom, in his courageously peaceful manner, came to a compromise with the Police; only ten of the xtians would be allowed to enter, but with no incense or crosses and with no religious service.
Today, you can find Rav Shalom and a minyan of our students at King David's holy gravesite almost every day at 7 AM. The fight for the sanctity and the mandate over this sacred site is the very fight for Moshiach. We won't give up. As in boxing, we'll see who's standing when the final bell rings. With Hashem's help, it will be us, not them (see image 5, below, from earlier this morning).
Things are happening very quickly. G-d willing, we'll be sharing more Geula news in the near future. One thing I can say - the next best thing to greeting Moshiach is to pray on King David's holy gravesite. It's Heaven there, literally. No wonder the Dark Side wants it so badly. We don't depend on power of any sort - only emuna in Hashem, something that no one can ever take away from us.
