Chabad - Psak that Rebbe is Navi & Moshiach

[translated by Chabbad chasidim]
In his public address of Shabbat Parshas Shoftim, 5751, the Lubavitcher Rebbe asserts that according to Torah law (Maimonides, Yesodei HaTorah, chapter 7), there is a prophet in our generation, and we are required to heed his directives. The Rebbe said:

"It must be publicized to all members of the generation that we have merited that G-d has chosen a person endowed with free choice, who is incomparably higher than the members of this generation, as the judge, counselor and prophet of the generation, to provide instruction and advice pertaining to the service of all Jews.... [His council extends] to the most fundamental prophecy - "Redemption is imminent" and immediately, literally, 'Behold he (Moshiach) comes."'

In light of Maimonides statement in Hilchos Yesodei HaTorah, 7:1, 9:2, 10:1, we the undersigned consider thet according to Torah law the Rebbe King Moshiach is a prophet. Moreover, in his public addresses the Rebbe clearly alludes to the fact that he is a prophet. Indeed, time and again, before the eyes of the Jewish people and the rest of the world, the Rebbe has accurately predicted the future. The Rebbe foresaw with incredible precision the unfolding and outcome of such events as the Six Day War,the Gulf War, and numerous other events. As such, there is an obligation to heed the Rebbe's every instruction, and to believe his every word.

On Shabbat Parsha Vayeira, 5752, the Rebbe said: "At the present time, all obstacles and hindrances have been nullified. As such, Moshiach (not only exists, but in fact), is also already revealed. All we have to do now is welcome Moshiach Tzidkeinu in actual reality."

On Shabbat Parshas Mishpatim, 5752; the Rebbe said the following: "...The ruling of the rabbanim and halachic authorities that the time of the Redemption has arrived - i.e. "A king will arise from the House of David... it is presumed that he is Moshiach," [- the Rebbe added to the halachic ruling :-] "until the state of "definitely Moshiach." In this public address, as well as numerous others, the Rebbe clearly hints at the fact that he is King Moshiach.

In light of these statements, and in light of the Rebbe's encouragement of the proclamation "Yechi Adoneinu", it is incumbent on every single Jew to heed the Rebbe's words and believe that he is indeed King Moshiach, who will be revealed imminently.


  1. Wasn't that signed by some pretty big people, like the Nadvorna Rebbe from Tzefas, and whatnot?

  2. This brings up an interesting idea:

    It seems that this psak is supposed to "force" heaven to reveal the late Rebbe as Moshiach.

    If a psak is against the truth, is it invalid, or does it redefine truth? This question can be taken to issues beyond this one.

  3. If you would ask many who signed on this "psak", you would find they never knew they were signing a "psak".

  4. I think somebody already asked on the forum that if,according to the understanding of the Lubavitchers the Reebbe had a din of a Novi, we would have a MAJOR problem.
    Well, if his prophecy does not come true, on a good tiding, that is,HE IS A NOVI SHEKER! (Rambam)
    The Rebbe stated that moshiach is coming very shortly in his words 'ot,ot kumt moshiach'That was 17 years ago.Nu?

  5. > The Rebbe stated that moshiach is coming very shortly in his words 'ot,ot kumt moshiach'That was 17 years ago.Nu?

    Dovid HaMelech said that a 1000 years to us is like a day to God. So 17 years? That's nothing. Clearly, He has time.

  6. if it is nevuah in halacha (like rambam writes in chapter 7/7 that that is only when he comes with a miracle in hand and states clearly that Hashem sent him) then when he says "ot ot" it then understood in terms of human beings (not "ot ot"
    in G-d's terms) so that his prophecy be grasped and materialized in human terms and is not "nofal bedovor koton".

  7. Chabad is now an "official" heresy.
