Questions about Moshiach
1. Could MBD come on a "lower" level because the Jewish people fall short of what Hashem expects? One Moshiach coming as Azkhenazi or Sephardic or Chabad or Breslov or Kurdish or... this can cause envy in the other "groups", almost the reason for the destruction of the Temple. the question is: could he come as Ben Noach or "non-religious" Jews at first? obviously becoming later and gradually acquiring much knowledge. Even because he also comes to unite the whole world and not only the Jewish people. Even if unprovable, this can not be possible? It would be a good fit for him to come upon a donkey (after mastering your yetzer hara). Besides a shrewd way of God to hide it in a klipa noga (as Moses in Mizraim). 2. If you will allow me: one last question. if he is humble like Moshe then he may not know that he is MBD, correct? or is he necessarily self-conscious of his anointing? Thank you very much. HaShem bless you.

Fasting over one’s sins
In the past I did immoral sins, but now I married a worthy woman and accepted upon myself to avoid sinning in the future, expressed regret, and confessed my sin. Is that enough for my sins to be forgiven or do I have to accept all kinds of extreme measures as mentioned in the holy books, like fasting during a night and a day, redeeming myself with money especially during Elul, the Ten Days of Repentance and the 8 weeks beginning with the week when they read Shemot? Or maybe my sins were forgiven already?
