A Prophet of Our Generation

According to the Rambam (Maimonides), there will be a prophecy even before the Redemption. The Lubavitcher Rebbe has made numerous prophecies that have come true. The following are among the most well-known:

1) A week and a half before the Six Day War, he predicted that there would be a great victory and asked that his prediction be publicized.

2) In 1966 he already predicted the fall of Communism. In 1987 when the Iron Curtain was still impenetrable, the Lubavitcher Rebbe asked to build homes and prepare jobs in Israel for the masses of Jews who would be leaving Russia. Two years later in 1989, the doors of Russia miraculously opened.

3) During the Gulf War he predicted that Israel would be the safest place, there would be no need for gas masks, and that the war would be over by Purim. Indeed, this is exactly what happened.

The list is endless. The Rambam states that if the prophecies materialize, this fulfills the criteria of a true prophet.

On August 25, 1991, he said that as the leader, judge, and prophet of our generation, his main prophecy is, "Redemption is coming soon." As a true prophet according to Jewish law, the Lubavitcher Rebbe prophecy is for all people Jews and Noahides as well. It is an obligation to believe and listen to everything he says, "because these are G-d's words through the prophet." He also instructs us to publicize to everyone in our generation that we merited that G-d has chosen a prophet for our generation.

The Torah teaches that in every generation there is a continuation of Moses, the father of all prophets. The Lubavitcher Rebbe tells us that the head of the generation is the extension of Moses. Just as Moshe brought the words of G-d and the entire Torah to the world, so, too, he is the Moshe of our generation that brings us G-d's words.


Rabbi Moshe Bernestein is a writer and a Community Rabbi in Netanya, Israel. He believes in making connections between the Jewish People and the Noahides worldwide in order to share and enhance the knowledge of the Torah's Universal Code for Humanity and fulfil Isaiah's Prophecy 11:9 " And the world will be filled with the knowledge of G-d as the waters cover the oceans".
