Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Everyday Encounters With Redemption

Everyday Encounters with Redemption

·        Heard in the dentist’s chair from Dr. Robert Goldberger, Endodontist:
“I wanted to do something special for Thanksgiving. So I called a few shelters to see if I could help serve food. They had so many volunteers ….they turned me away! So I had to think of something else. Maybe I’ll take the kids and go around the corner to the nursing home.”
          Years ago the Rebbe said that to bring Moshiach we should “add something additional in the realm of goodness and kindness.” You can see that people are doing this.

·        A Ray of Moshiach Getting Off the Bus, from Rabbi B:

“I stepped onto the bus on my way to an appointment, and an African-American was on his way out. When he saw me he announced, ‘Rabbi, I have the 7 Noahide Laws, and I want you to know I am keeping them.”
          Just about everyone wants to be a part of the Redemption and to do whatever it takes. Okay, there are a few exceptions, but by and large, people want the information and want to know what to do.
          The 7 Noahide Laws are universal laws from the Torah, given to Moses on Mt. Sinai for the gentile nations. These laws are the guidelines for a civilized world, where people can dwell together in tranquility. This is the kind of the world that G-d wants.

·        Is this the one we’ve been waiting for?, from DL
On a recent visit to a government office, I gave the 7 Laws to a lady with a little girl. I had my three year old son with me. She looked at the card with the Rebbe's picture and asked, Is this the Messiah? Yes I nodded. Is this the one we’ve been waiting for?she persisted. Yes, I said. A while later she saw my little boy was getting restless. Is it okay if my daughter gives him a crayon and some paper? she asked. That would be very nice, I responded.  A few minutes later her daughter gave my little boy another crayon. Then another. And another.  Soon she had given him all her crayons. Then she asked him, her eyes wide with excitement, Would you like a marker? When they left, the little girl turned around to my son and waved and waved.
          For a Jewish family, going to a government office in New York City used to be a whole different story. People were hostile and sometimes openly anti-Semitic, Not just the employees but the people waiting to be helped. It’s a totally different atmosphere today. There is such respect. Then when you give the 7 Laws it brings out that spark.
