WAR OF IDEAS
If a king arises from the House of Dovid who diligently contemplates the Torah and observes its mitzvos as prescribed by the Written Law and the Oral Law (like Dovid, his ancestor), compels all of Israel to walk in the ways of the Torah and rectifies the breaches in its observance, and fights the wars of G-d, we may, with assurance, consider him Moshiach. If he succeeds in the above, builds the Temple in its place, and gathers the dispersed of Israel, he is definitely the Moshiach. (Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Melachim U’Milchamos 11:4)
Moshiach will conquer the entire world without shooting a single bullet. (Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Likkutei Halachos, A.C., 5:9)
The prophets foretell that Moshiach will fight the wars of G-d and return the Jewish people to the Promised Land, the land of Israel. Yet, these battles will not be fought with sword and gun, but with ideas that will eventually turn enemies into friends, and friends into brothers and sisters. According to the Rebbe Rashab, the initial stages in the war of truth and light against ignorance and darkness have begun. According to the Rebbe, the threshold of success is before us.
For the victory to be complete, the final battle must be fought within ourselves. By learning Torah, constantly improving our effort in prayer and mitzvos, and then teaching others to do the same, we will merit to greet Moshiach, speedily in our days.
