    I’m a Shliach not far from the Ohel. I went to the Ohel once and wrote that a bill is due in three days (a few thousand) and I had nothing in my account. When I returned from the Ohel, on my way inside my home I stuck my hand inside the mailbox and removed that days mail and inside one of the envelopes was a check for the amount of the bill due.

    He didn't ask the Rebbe-he told the Rebbe he needs 10,000

    Rebbe, we are not asking for Moshiach and the geula shlaima now. We need the geula shlaima now.

    Nice story. But that means that the check was already there before you went to the Ohel.

    We do not know how these things work. If one has the merit and he is זוכה then he may be answered in advance even before he asks. This is in the spirit of והיה טרם יקראו ואני אענה “I will respond before they will ask.”

    I would like to point out that he was answered by the Ribbono Shel Oilam, not by the Rebbe.

    Chassidus explains that the Rebbe is the ממוצע המחבר the unifying connection between us and Hashem. Same as Moshe Rabbeinu.

    You may ask, upon hearing a story where the Rebbe tells someone to travel to xyz … and there, indeed, under providential twists and turns, bingo!

    You question might be: Did the Rebbe see that this guy will be walking this way and that then suddenly the other guy shows up, etc? No. But the tzaddik’s bracha can dictate to Hashem Who then sets up those circumstances to happen accordingly!
