The Announcement of the Redemption:
What was said previously concerning the Redemption receives extra emphasis
as we find ourselves in the month of Nissan of this year, "It will be a year
of miracles [that] I will show you." And as we said (also in the general
letters) regarding the wonders and miracles which occurred this year (close
to Purim), an opponent of the Jews was nullified. The victory reached the
point that the enemy freed some of the prisoners of war in a fitting manner,
as we previously discussed in detail.
And certainly the Holy One, Blessed be He, will continue to reveal wonders
and miracles until - and most important - "I will show you miracles" in the
true and complete Redemption.
For these wars in that part of the world ("the king of Persia" with the "king
of Aram") are one of the signs that the Redemption through our righteous
Moshiach is imminent, as stated in Yalkut Shimoni. And
as it says there, "My children, do not be afraid... the time of your Redemption
has arrived" and "the King Moshiach stands on the roof of the Beis HaMikdash
[Holy Temple] and proclaims to them - to Israel - and says, 'Humble ones,
the time for your Redemption has arrived!"
