Passover (5764 (3))
Shevei Shel Pesach was when the Yam Suf split.
On that occasion the simplest of Jews saw reveations that even the higest of prophets, Isiah and Ezekel, didn't see: They ALL saw G-d and said "Zeh Kaili V'Anvaihu" THIS is my G-d and I'll praise Him.
This is something like what it will be in the days of Moshiach (that's why Chassidut; the teachings of the Baal Shem Tov, especially as they are explained in the writings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, is a preparation for Moshaich because it teaches us to recognize and get exited about G-d)
But nevertheless ACHARON shel Pesach is higher and then is when the Baal Shem Tov said to make a Moshiach Seuda (I hope you all will participate in one; we eat Matza and drink four cups of wine and think about Moshiach).
Because in the splitting of the sea, the sea and the land still remained separate.... (not only that but all the Egyptians died).
But the Moshiach will cause the WORLD to be filled with the knowledge of G-d like the SEA FILLS THE OCEAN (Isaiah 11:9.). That's what the Rambam says in the very end of his book. (And then even all the Non-Jews will benefit as it says in the second paragraph of Alenu; all mankind will turn to the Creator even the evil people of the world!!)
So we have a lot to be happy about on this holiday!!
WITH MOSHIACH NOW!!!!
