The pressure's on! Only two more weeks to go, and Mashiach hasn't been identified yet as far as I know. Too many gematrias (gematrioth if you're good at Hebrew) point to 5776 as the year he will show up on Jewish "radar." The radar part is my interpretation, not what was said.
Also take a look at this video: the Temple will come down to Yerushalayim in 5776.
My husband and I wrote an article back about 2013-ish, an exercise in interpreting gematria that even R' Pinchas Winston had nothing bad to say about - we had it posted under his video Geulah b'Rachamim, thinking they went well together, and published it on our personal web site. (I'm not adding a link to it here because hubby redesigned the site and hasn't put any articles back in. The Wayback Machine doesn't have it either. If my husband finds it, bli neder I will post it next. If not, then I'll continue with more writing I have had in mind for a while.) It was inspired by a teaching by R' Ephraim Sprecher, that in Parashath Behar, Vayikra 25:10 the gematria of the word tashuvu תשבו (missing a vav (ו) - we know it through the nikud) comes out to 708, referring to the rebirth of the State of Israel.
י וְקִדַּשְׁתֶּם אֵת שְׁנַת הַחֲמִשִּׁים שָׁנָה וּקְרָאתֶם דְּרוֹר בָּאָרֶץ לְכָל ישְׁבֶיהָ יוֹבֵל הִוא תִּהְיֶה לָכֶם וְשַׁבְתֶּם אִישׁ אֶל אֲחֻזָּתוֹ וְאִישׁ אֶל מִשְׁפַּחְתּוֹ תָּשֻׁבוּ
10 And you shall sanctify the fiftieth year, and proclaim freedom [for slaves] throughout the land for all who live on it. It shall be a Jubilee for you, and you shall return, each man to his property, and you shall return, each man to his family.
My husband's question was: How do we know it was in 5708, since the gematria was 708? It could have been in any of the past or future millennia. To find the answer, he and I went through all the millennia from Creation - the years 708, 1708, 2708 and so on, up to 6708 (which hasn't happened yet) searching for events that could answer 1) the gematria, and 2) the context of the verse it occurs in (in this case, sanctifying the Yovel, or Jubilee, year), and came to the conclusion that 5708 was the answer because of the major event that occurred in that year, the announcement of the rebirth of the State of Israel. All the rest of the millennia didn't have such a clear event to point to.
In the next two weeks we shall see whether the gematriot that have been put forth as possibly indicating Mashiach's identification in 5776 come true. Prior to this we can never know. And even if it doesn't...we must wait expectantly, and not give up! There's always 5777!
Meanwhile, the King is in the field, and we must go out to meet Him...!
