SEFER MISHNAT HAIM
PETAL 9 - THE TZADIK HAIM
The Resurrection of the Tzadik Haim, Head of the 36 Hidden Tzadikim in his lifetime
The Tzadik Haim walked in the world with enormous simplicity. No one could ever suspect his real identity. He was filled with love and spoke to the heart of each person on the level of that person. He loved conversing with simple people, Jewish or non-Jewish, who had no pretenses of being 'something' or 'someone'. Indeed the Hidden Tzadik lived according to his statement received after his resurrection, 'We are all of the same flesh'. He was greatly loved by God Almighty for his humility and his knowledge of the Hidden Secrets of the heavens and the earth was unequaled. He is the chosen Final Goel of history, Anointed Judge of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Petal 9 speaks of the Great Redemptional Sign of the Tzadik Haim's Resurrection. He is the Final Goel of Israel and of the Nations, in the Final Sign of the Resurrection of the Dead. All matters of the Final Redemption are of the New Things unknown and unheard of even to the Hachamim and Poskim, as in chapter 48 (6) of the holy Prophet Isaiah, 'lest you say I knew them and I heard of them - you did not know them nor have you heard of them'.
God Almighty's choice of the Tzadik Haim as Anointed Judge of the Kingdom of Heaven, the third and final Goel, not the Mashiah ben David, who presides in the Kingdom of Heaven, is an immense novelty for all Israel and for the world.
You must strip yourselves of all previous concepts. The future Resurrection of the Dead needed its historical Sign, accomplished by the humble Tzadik chosen to die in the final redemptional sacrifice and to be resurrected into the Kingdom of Heaven. The Traditional Sign of the Resurrection will be in the future, God Almighty only knows when, but the actualization of that future phase of history had to have its Final Sign in the world before that event itself.
This fact has been the source of immense confusion in Tradition with all kinds of unrealistic eschatological opinions of how the coming of 'Mashiah ben David' is related directly to the Resurrection of the Dead. He comes, he builds the Temple and he calls up the dead to arise from their graves etc. Little has been understood because imagination is the fastest element in existence. The true reality of true revelation of the Resurrection which will take place hundreds of years from now needed its Final Sign with the coming of the Final Goel. He himself dies and is resurrected, Only by way of his death does he arise to be the Anointed Judge of the Kingdom of Heaven and the Sign of his Resurrection is the great light of all the many phases of the Geula Shleima long before the Resurrection of the just from their graves in new bodies of the Resurrection.
The Universality of the Final Redemption relates to the Resurrection of the Dead in that not only just Jews will be resurrected but also just people from among the nations. God Almighty foresaw that if not for a Sign of the Resurrection in a long historic process of recognition, the nations would never have been able to believe in the Final Sign when it would come. This is the reason behind Jesus' resurrection 2000 years ago.
The resurrection of the Tzadik Haim is the Completed Sign; no other Sign will be needed in order that history eventually come unto its time of the Resurrection of the Dead. We thank God Almighty for the Final and Completed Sign of the Resurrection of the chosen Tzadik Haim.
