Malchus of Malchus, 49th Day of the Omer, 5773,
"The quickest and shortest way to bring about the True and Complete Redemption by Moshiach is to study the matters of Moshiach as they exist in Torah, and specifically the esoteric dimensions... particularly the discourses of the Rebbe..." (Sichos Kodesh 5751, Tazria-Metzorah)
The very existence of a blog network active around the concepts of Geulah and Moshiach, is in it of itself a manifestation of the Geulah itself.
The main rift between Chassidim and Misnagdim, was part of the way in which Torah is developed - with two opposing positions - thesis and antithesis. But the purpose of this separation is in order to merge the two (synthesis), hence revealing a "new light" that was not available before.
This is true in the Midos of Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferes of Atzilus, all the way down to the pairs of Tanaaim such as Hillel and Shamai, Abaye and Rava, etc.
The path of the misnagdim, lead by the Gra was the branch of Moshiach ben Yosef. Total mastery of the Torah, and indeed kingship over the entire world. As we know that Yosef truly is higher then Yehuda, only that Yehuda's ego nullification and servitude to Hashem in a level transcending intellect and knowledge, so Dovid becomes higher then Yosef.
But Yosef's mastery of the Torah (and hence the world) comes along with ego and pride. This is where the great grandfather of Moshiach ben Yosef, King Yeravam ben Nevat, failed. He rebelled against G-d but he knew that by the Torah it is rightful for him to be higher then King Shlomo ben Dovid. This was his Nega (ailment), he lacked the humility of the House of Dovid King of Israel.
And in the end of days, this humility will come to Yosef, through becoming a chossid and becoming nullified to Moshiach ben Dovid of his generation, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the 7th heir to the Baal HaTanya, 9th to the Baal Shem Tov.
It is time for the world of Torah of Lita to come and taste from the wellsprings of the Chassidus of the Baal Shem Tov, as it was garbed in Chochmah Binah and Daas ("begin deitparnusa mina...") in the Sefer HaTanya and the Likkutey Torah of the Alter Rebbe. Until the discourses of the Nasi of our generation, the Rebbe Shlita Melech HaMoshiach from Lubavitch.
