By the grace of G-d
Shalom uBrocha!

Soldiers and Protesters in Kfar Maimon making the same Minyan even though there is a barbed wired fence between them!

Yeshayahu 55:9. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts [higher] than your thoughts.
As the heavens are higher, etc. That is to say that there is a distinction and a difference, advantages and superiority in My ways more than your ways and in My thoughts more than your thoughts, as the heavens are higher than the earth; you are intent upon rebelling against Me, whereas I am intent upon bringing you back.

The Rebbe:
Although particular elements of our people's divine service may still be in need of completion or improvement, this does not affect the nature of the situation as a whole. When the greater context is considered, it is clear that our people have completed the mission with which we were charged. Particular failings, although in need of correction, are not a valid reason for the Redemption to be delayed any longer. See above Sichos Parshas Noach.
Indeed, we learn that G-d will bring about the ultimate Redemption speedily even when the Jewish people have not yet fully cleansed themselves. For in the penitential prayers of Selichos (quoting Tehillim 25:22 and 130:8), we say, first: "G-d, redeem Israel from all his afflictions"; and afterwards: "And He will redeem Israel from all his sins." First G-d will redeem the Jews from their difficulties -- including the greatest difficulty, the exile -- and then He will redeem them from their sins. See the essay entitled, "Every Jew Has a Silver Lining," Sichos In English Vol. 47, pgs. 11-18.
from: Open Your Eyes And See

We are currently in the last days of Exile, when “Behold, he stands behind our wall, watching from the windows, peering in from the cracks.” That is, the wall of Exile has already cracked, and Moshiach Tzidkeinu stands and “peers in from the cracks,” (the cracks of the wall of Exile)…Certainly then, at this time one should make every effort to behave in a way of ahavas Yisroel, ahavas chinam (unwarranted love). Through ahavas Yisroel we will merit the Redemption. (Sicha 11 Nissan 5742, unedited)

With respect and blessing.

Long Live our Master our Teacher and our Rebbe King Moshiach Forever and Ever!

Consider the connection between the Rebbe's reasons for "Yechi" (that saying it hastens the resurection of the dead Sicha Beis Nissan 5748 (Sefer HaSichos 5748, vol. 1, pgs 350, 351, 354)

and the His earlier statement in Hayom Yom:

Monday Sivan 11 5703
Torah lessons: Chumash: Beha'alotecha, Sheini with Rashi.
Tehillim: 60-65.
Tanya: An illustration (p. 293)...nothing besides it. (p. 295).

From my father's talks: "The avoda of serving G-d according to Chassidus comprises all kinds of levels... The level of "corpse" does not need much elaboration; but, thank G-d, there is also "resurection of the dead" in spiritual avoda. A corpse is cold; there is nothing as frigid as natural intellect, human intellect.
When one's natural intelligence comprehends a G-dly concept, and the emotions latent in intellect are enthused and moved by the pleasure-within-intellect - that is true revival of the dead.

Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe.

For more sources from Chassidus and Kabbolah on this understanding of the resurection of the dead see "To Live and Live Again" chapter 14 and the footnotes there.
Somewhat related to this see Inner meaning of the mitzvah of Appointing a King
from Derech Mitzvosecha by the Tzemach Tzedek, the 3rd Rebbe of Lubavitch
