Moshiach's Password ''5778''

In his latest shiur, Rabbi Kessin tells us of the special code words given by Moshe Rabbeinu that identified him as their saviour sent by Hashem to take the Jews out of Mitzrayim.  Those words are פָּקֹ֤ד פָּקַ֨דְתִּי֙ - [pokod pokadeti] I have surely remembered you

Shemot 3:16 ''Go and assemble the elders of Israel, and say to them, 'The Lord God of your forefathers has appeared to me, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, "I have surely remembered you and what is being done to you in Egypt."

You can read more about these words by clicking here.

These are the words used by the Redeemers: Moshe  and Moshiach.

Now Rabbi Kessin gives us some extra information.

The gematria of  פָּקֹ֤ד פָּקַ֨דְתִּי֙ is 778.  This may represent the year 778.....  but how do we know that this could actually be the year 5778?  Because there is a Vav missing from the word פָּקֹ֤ד , and Vav is the number 6, representing the sixth millenium - 5778.  So those words are quite possibly hinting to the fact that when the Moshiach arrives with these special code words, it could very well be this year 5778.

If you want to hear Rabbi Kessin's actual words on this, listen from around 1:32:00 onwards.

A Message from Eliyahu HaNavi to an IDF Soldier
Yeranen Yaakov has a link to an interesting story on

Here is a very quick translation:

We heard in a lecture on Chanukah 5778 by Rabbi Dov Kook of Tiberius, who said that by Purim the war of Gog and Magog will breakout and that this Purim 5778 will be the last Purim before the revelation of Mashiach.

A few days ago, after services, a young student approached his Rabbi in a certain village in Israel and asked if he could tell him about a frightening incident. A true story that happened to a young man a few days before that.

A young soldier got on a bus and sat at the back seat. An old man came to sit next to him. The old man, without knowing him started to speak to him and said: "You should know that the war of Gog and Magog will breakout in Shvat"

According to פרקי דרבי אליעזר (chapter 48), the password for the Final Redemption is צמח צמחתי. The password פקד פקדתי was for the Exodus from Egypt.

Perhaps, the idea is that כימי צאתך ממצרים אראנו נפלאות - i.e. like the number of years in the millennium of the gematria of the password from your going out from Egypt, I will show you wonders in the Final Redemption.

THanks Yaak. Yesterday I listened to another shiur by Rabbi Jacobson.... a shiur about addiction.... and then suddenly he starts talking about pokod pokodeti....although he doesn't mention Moshiach..... if anyone is interested you can find it here The Baal HaTanya Speaks to to Addicts: Maamar on Shovevim

Yaak is right. One of Mashiach's names appearing in our Scriptures is Tzemach.
