Through Hashem’s great kindness, our generation, the seventh generation, has merited to reach the final moments of exile. Through the Rebbe’s efforts over the course of more than forty years, the wellsprings of Chassidus have reached the farthest corners of the earth.
Some years ago, several halachic authorities ruled that the qualifications for bechezkas Moshiach as laid out by the Rambam (Hilchos Melachim, chapter 11) have been realized in the person of the Rebbe.
The Rebbe himself, in a talk of Parshas Mishpatim, 5751, declared that the appointment of David Malka Meshicha (David, the messianic king) has already taken place.
Later, in a talk of Parshas Chaya Sarah, the Rebbe issued a clear instruction to all the shluchim (emissaries) to the effect that since Moshiach’s mission to bring the Redemption—that is, the mission of “shlach na beyad tishlach”—has already begun, the sole remaining task of the shlichus enterprise is to actually welcome Moshiach so that he could carry out his mission of redeeming the Jewish people from exile.
This year, 5780, marks a multitude of significant milestones:
100 years since the histalkus of the Rebbe Rashab, the founder of Yeshivas Tomchie T’mimim, who empowered his Chayolei Beis Dovid soldiers with the mission of conquering the world for Moshiach.
100 years since the beginning of the leadership the Rebbe Rayatz, who began the actual process of conquering the world, especially after arriving in the lower hemisphere, through disseminating Torah, Judaism, and the wellspring of Chassidus throughout all communities.
70 years since the beginning of the leadership of the Rebbe, Melech Hamoshiach (King Moshiach), who greatly intensified the global transformation until its culmination in the actual conquest of the world.
We are convinced that the time for the Rebbe to be openly revealed as Moshiach has arrived. In the Rebbe’s own words (talk of 2 Nissan, 5748):
“Being that we have now reached the perfection of ‘chayim’ (sixty-eight) years in terms of the length of Nesi Doreinu’s leadership (i.e., his activities and Divine service), there needs to be a fundamental increase in the chayim (life) dynamic through (among other things) the act of the people in declaring ‘Yechi Hamelech.’ The essence of this declaration is that the time has arrived for ‘Awaken and sing, you who dwell in the dust’—namely, my sainted father-in-law, the Rebbe, Nesi Doreinu—and indeed, for ‘Awaken and sing’ Dovid Malka Meshicha….”
