Yaakov gathered all of his 12 sons together. He started to disclose to them a very important secret, “Listen closely. I want to reveal to you the exact date when Moshiach (the Messiah) will come.”
The 12 sons all came closer and held their breath, waiting to hear this amazing prophecy of their father.
“My children… the exact date of the arrival of Moshiach will be…” Not a sound was heard…you could hear a pin drop!
Then suddenly… The Ruach HaKodesh (Divine inspiration) left Yaakov. He no longer knew that special date. HaShem wanted the secret to remain a secret.
