Moshiach: Revealed, Concealed, Revealed

In our future redemption with the revelation of the final redeemer...the redeemer will be revealed and he will again be concealed...for so we find with the redemption from Egypt that Moshe was revealed to them and he was again concealed from them. And so says the midrash 'my beloved is like a deer' just as a deer is seen and revealed and is again concealed, so did the first redeemer [Moshe Rabbeinu] appear to them and was again concealed from them, and once again revealed to them...also the future redeemer [Moshiach] will be revealed and again concealed...

Rabbeinu Bachya, Shemos 4:9
