Linked Post: The Chofetz Chaim Teaches The Young Rav Shimon Schwab How To Be A Kohen - from Revach L'Neshama

"When Reb Shimon Schwab was a young bachur, he had the opportunity to visit the Chofetz Chaim.  In the course of the visit, the Chofetz Chaim asked him whether he was a Kohen or Yisrael.  R’ Schwab answered that he was a Yisrael.  The Chofetz Chaim then said, “I am a Kohen.  Do you know what difference it makes whether I am a Kohen or Yisrael?  When Moshiach comes we’ll all go up to Yerushalayim and we’ll all clamor to enter the Beis Hamikdash to bring karbonos and to perform the avodah.  We’ll run to the gates of the Beis Hamikdash and then suddenly we will be stopped.  I will be allowed to enter the Beis Hamikdash, but you will be forced to remain outside.  Those who are forced to wait outside will be extremely jealous of the Kohanim who were allowed in to perform the avodah.”
