Excerpt from The Task of the Spy, Eli Cohen, H”YD. – A Torah Hint About This
In chapter 2 section 39 of Kol Hator (written by a disciple of the Vilna Gaon), we learn:“And Yosef (Joseph) recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him (Genesis chapter 42). – This is one of the characteristics of Yosef not just in his generation but in every generation, since Messiah son of Yosef recognizes his brothers, but they do not recognize him. And it is an action of Satan that hides the characteristics of Messiah son of Yosef, that they do not recognize the footsteps of the Messiah and also ridicule them, in our great iniquities…For if not for this, there would have already have been an end to our troubles. Now if Israel were to recognize Yosef, that is to say the footsteps of Yosef the Messiah, which are the in-gathering of the exiles, etc., we would be redeemed already with a full redemption.
