Just as the sap rising in the trees is invisible but flowing, so is Hashem’s salvation. If we know the secret of t’chias hamaisim we need not fear anything in this world, because we have Hashem’s promise that He will bring us back even from the dead. And the key to resurrection is kavod. The moon tells us that. We need to be united in order to merit t’chias hamaisim.
Inside the Tree of Life, the sap is beginning to flow upward from the ancient roots – our fathers Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov and our mothers Sarah, Rivka, Rachel, and Leah – to the tips of the branches and buds, our own generation.
Unseen by the heedless masses, God is preparing to heal the world. The Children of Israel, even though we ourselves may not be aware of it, are rising toward our destiny. Do you think darkness will not be followed by light? Do you think the world is condemned to the eternal grip of the icy hand of winter?
No. Mashiach ben David is coming. The long-dormant bud is about to open. Unseen, the sap is rising through the frozen branches, and suddenly, k’heref ayin, in the blink of an eye, when men have given up hope, when they think darkness will never end and spring will never come, the flower will burst forth in glorious splendor and a new age of purity will explode upon the earth.
In those days, soon to come, “A sun of righteousness will shine for you who fear My Name, with healing in its rays…” (Malachi 3:20).
“Blessed are You, Hashem, Who revives the dead.”
