Moshiach - It is real

Thursday, 28 April, 2016 - 10:42 am

 

On the last day of Pesach we read the haftorah about Moshiach.

One would think that the haftorah should begin with the first verse in Isaiah Ch. 11, talking about Moshiach: "And a shoot shall spring forth from the stem of Jesse, and a twig shall sprout from his roots."

In actuality, the haftorah begins with Isaiah Ch 10 v 32, with a message about Chizkiyahu. Chizkiyahu lost the opportunity to be Moshiach, in the last moment, when he didn't praise G-d for His help in winning the war with Sancherib.

One of the reasons why this seemingly historical account is how the haftorah begins, is to share with us the message that Moshiach is not only something we believe in, it is something real; something that almost happened yet lost at the last minute, as well as something that will happen any second.

Wishing you a redemption filled end of Pesach.

Hope you can join us for the Moshiach meal, Shabbat afternoon 4/30/16 at 6:30 pm, prefaced by a 6:00 Mincha.

P.S. Read the whole haftorah here

P.S.S. My brother from Atlanta wrote a nice piece about why Chabad is obsessed with Moshiach, read all about it here.
