I am feeling crushed since I was hoping that the Messiah and final redemption would come this month (Nissan Hebrew calendar) but the month is near to being over and he still hasn't come. I am afraid that he may not come now and it seems like it may never come, G*d forbid.

Hello AaronBenjamin,

Sorry to read that you are feeling crushed.

The Messiah? Jesus Christ?

Perhaps Jesus is not coming back. That does not necessarily mean to say that Jesus Christ could not help in spirit. Should God, The Father of all of Creation be in agreement with that.

Hopefully all shall be alright.

Someone passes away to make way for a new baby to be born .

Perhaps there is something for the one passing away to be happy about.

Perhaps there is something for the new baby to be happy about.

Hope you have a happy Sunday!

I am not a Christian. I am Jewish. I am waiting for the Jewish Messiah. Some Rabbis had predicted that he would come this year on the Hebrew calendar so I was expecting and hoping that this would be the year. Thanks anyways for your post.

Sorry about that. I often feel that the failure of external loci of power is, if not a deliberate trick on the part of a higher intelligence, then, at least an opportunity for me to see what it was I really wanted, from inner resources. Might this work for you, to reinterpret what you expected into what you really want, and seek it within?

Hello Aaron,

I am sorry that you have been disappointed. If it helps, know that you are not alone. Many people in this world suffer a disillusionment or disappoinment from their spiritual belief at some point in their life.

I can understand that intense joy and belief can result in intense, crushing despair.

I can't interpret your text but I do know that humans are fallible. And all forms of a diety that I am aware of is forgiving of the failings.

Maybe you can tap into that divine forgiveness to this misinterpretation and allow for the higher spiritual transcendence because of the great low that is forcing you into this new understanding?

Thank you to both of you for your replies. I will continue to hope for the best. This year on the Jewish calendar is not over yet so there is still time for the prediction to come true. Even if it doesn't I will continue to hope for the best in the future.
