Peaceful Redemption comes from within

The Pasuk “Padah B’Shalom…,” in addition to the simple meaning referring to Hashem redeeming David HaMelech from his attackers, it also hints to the redemption of a number of Tzaddikim. And especially those who were saying this Pasuk at a time when they were being redeemed. It is noteworthy that all three Rebbeim who were redeemed (The Alter Rebbe on 19 Kislev, the Mitteler Rebbe on 10 Kislev, and the Frierdiker Rebbe on 12 Tammuz) were saying this Pasuk at the time when they were redeemed.

The Mitteler Rebbe, in his Maamar on this Pasuk, explains the emphasis of the redemption being peacefully, B’Shalom. The ultimate peace is when there is no opposer at all. Similar to the way it was in Shlomo HaMelech’s time, when all of the nations were completely nullified. Because as long as there is an opposer, even if he technically does not attack or fight, out of fear, that’s not true peace. True peace is when there is no potential of an attacker either, and there’s no place for war at all.

This is the reason why the Yartzeit of the Mitteler Rebbe is the day before his Chag HaGeulah. Because through the fact that his peaceful redemption was after his entire life’s work, which was bittul, it brought this revelation also to those who are connected to him. And they do not need any preparation. All that’s needed is the will. And it’s within everyone’s reach, even without going out of his own situation, to redeem himself peacefully. And through this to redeem the entire world, with the coming of Moshiach, may it be speedily in our days!

Redeem yourself, redeem the world!
