Revealing the Geulah = Its Delay


שיח שרפי קודש ב, א-רצט
(Painting by Boris Dubrov)

It was once explained to the Rebbe that the tzaddik Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev said that the geulah would occur in the year 5570 (תק''ע), for it is hinted in the verse, "Sound (תקע) the great shofar for our freedom." (Weekly Shmoneh Esrei).  The Rebbe responded, "5648 (תרח''ם) is also a year."  If one says that 5570 is the year of the redemption, for it is hinted to in the verse, "Sound (תקע)the great shofar," then one is also able to say that the redemption will be in the year 5648, because that year too is hinted as the time of the redemption in the verse, "You will arise and have compassion (תרחם) on Zion." (Tehillim 102:14)

And see what the Rebbe says regarding this topic in חיי מוהר''ן תקכז: "Whenever the time of Mashiach's coming is revealed, then he certainly will not come, for "The Son of David will only come when he is not expected." (Sanhedrin 97b)
