If you don't understand from outside sources, it is because God wants to personally take you through the process yourself.
If there was a complete list like Mark S, Aravah, or Plushy Bear believe, then you wouldn't have
5 Years After Death, Messiah Question Divides Lubavitchers
Washington Post/June 20, 1999
By Liz Leyden
***After Schneerson's death the signs of messianism appeared slowly in his synagogue at 770 Eastern Parkway. Banners stretched a message across the walls: "Long live the Rebbe, King Moshiach. Forever and ever."...At recent Sabbath services, an older woman along the front row of the women's section smiled and pointed to the chair. "He is Moshiach," she said, using the Hebrew word for messiah....Midway through the night, songs broke up the prayers and the mood shifted from pensive to joyous as the people sang: "Long live the Rebbe, King Moshiach! Forever and ever!" Hundreds of men surged into the center of the room, dancing in a circle so full it barely could move...Rabbi Shmuel Spritzer, 52, was in the crowd. One of five men who publish Beis Moshiach, a weekly messianic magazine begun in 1994, Spritzer knows some people think he is "not normal" for his belief, but he is not fazed..."We're preparing the world to greet Moshiach," Spritzer said. "Religion in general is a fanatical thing. In the Jewish religion we twirl a rooster over our heads the day before Yom Kippur. There's a lot of strange things we do, but we do them because God told us to."***
Please note, non-Messianic Judaism has not believed in a God that can speak and act since Yochanan ben Zakkai became Vespasian's rabbi. It was by the power of Vespasian that Zakkai was able to undo the 900 year interpretation of
those who rebuilt the Temple
those who rededicated the Temple (Chanukkah)
by saying what Hosea really meant in 14:3 was that prayer replaced the need for senseless killing of innocent animals. This also means Torah commands about Aaron's priesthood and Temple have changed to something Aravah, Mark S, and Plushy Bear don't want to say since the Torah commands still remain. In addition, they don't want to say how this interpretation will suddenly vanish when the Messiah appears and re-establish that which the non-prophet Zakkai changed.
So the short of it is to ask God who can speak and act and let Him show you the answer as He is the best and most qualified to answer.
Hope this helps
Please note that Aravah converted less than 2 years ago and what the rabbi said about her conversion.
***Aravah said "Some Orthodox will accept you as well, especially if your conversion was fairly strict and you are very observant."- this is NOT the case. Due to the issues I have listed above, Reform conversions are NEVER accepted by Orthodox.***

Your best author on the subject is John Walvoord but I can't find the exact book you'd need. Other than that, you can go to two links, see: Messianic Age at wiki here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messianic_Age and also Christian Eschatology here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eschatology if it was Islamic "Messianic age" you were referring to it's in with the (just) previous link.
