Did the Rebbe say that he is the Moshiach?

Many people for erroneous reasons I think ask whether the Rebbe declared himself as the Moshiach. I don't believe that we wait for a Messianic candidate to declare himself as the Moshiach as the mitzva to appoint a king falls on the Jewish People and not on the king himself. However there were many hints given to the people whether doing so is the right thing to do. Here is an occurrence that has come to light again due to a recent court case so it has been recorded in the lower courts as well now.

During Rabbi Groner’s testimony, he was asked whether using the title “Melech HaMoshiach” was ever authorized, or allowed, by the Rebbe to be used in the Rebbe’s Seforim. This after noting that some Seforim bear that title, such as the Lekutei Sichos and “Bsuras Hageulah”.
Rabbi Groner responded that he once entered the Rebbe’s room and expressly asked whether they may use the title, and the Rebbe consented. Afterwards, he read for the Rebbe the exact wording of the title page of “Besuras Hageulah” which states Melech HaMoshiach after the Rebbe’s name, and asked whether that may be printed, and the Rebbe nodded his holy head in the affirmative.

Great letter from Dr. Nissan Mindel answering fools who try to question the Rebbe and Lubavich.

Pesach Sheini, 5730
Thank you for your letter… I was puzzled by your question about the Cadillac – as you correctly surmised. But frankly, I could find more profitable use for my time than answering criticism of Lubavitch. If everything said and rumored were taken seriously & refuted – a full time secretary would be required (& nothing would be gained). For usually these critics are not interested in the truth but only wish to criticize and find fault. However, I cannot refuseyou an answer since you seem genuinely concerned…
To begin with, you have conveyed to me something which you heard from someone, who has heard it from someone else… Although I usually refuse to discuss hearsay, I will give my reply in the order of your letter:
1)      I am not aware of anyone being warned, before going into the Rebbe’s, shlita room for a private audience, to address him as “Your Eminence.” This is absurd. (I know of one writer who insists on using this expression when referring to the Rebbe, but that is the said writer’s prerogative). The usual custom is to address the Rebbe, when speaking to him, in the third person (“The Rebbe said…), but this respectful manner is due to any older Rov… it has always been the custom to use the third person when writing to anyone in Hebrew and the Rebbe also uses this form exclusively, except when writing to children. This is also my practice.
2)      Not to speak before spoken to, to stand in the Rebbe’s presence and to walk backwards when leaving – this is the customary way Chasidim act in the Rebbe’s presence… this is in the best tradition of Jewish etiquette. (I presume this would be the routine when being received in audience by the Queen?). The Rebbe asks non-Chasidim to sit down, and some do. I sit in the Rebbe’s presence only when taking dictation. That fellow is barking up the wrong tree if he criticizes this procedure.
3)      I know that the Rebbe does not accept personal gifts for himself or his wife from anyone. The only exception is books – and that for his library, since it is of public service. Checks made payable to the Rebbe go to ”Special   Discretionary Fund” – for special cases or directed to one of the institutions.
4)      On the question of “miracles” – here too, the well-known adage can be applied: “For him who believes, no proof is necessary, for him who does not believe, no proof will suffice.” However I will present here some basic observations in regard to miracles: Jews who believe in the Torah believe in miracles; Jews who believe in the Talmud, believe in the ability of certain men (Tannaim etc.) to perform miracles; many men are mentioned in the Talmud who perform miracles, and none was “deified”; the efficacy of blessings and prayers has often been stressed in the Talmud, even of an ordinary Jew; there are “miracles” & there are “miracles”… of turning blood into water etc. and of a blessing come true – such as a refu’a, children, affluence. As for the first kind – I have not heard of any Chosid claim the Rebbe has performed this. It is usually a case of his blessing or prayer having materialized. Those who have experienced such “miracles”- do not have to see a “rational” explanation for, as mentioned above, it is well within the realm of men, especially saintly men. Skeptics may want to “rationalize” such miracles – it is their prerogative.

You can't have a geula without a King Moshiach.

The markets are crashing.
The world is going bonkers.
Jews, non Jews are all expecting the Moshiach to show up at any moment.
But, here is the thing. How do you expect a king, Moshiach will be a king, to drop out of the sky and usher in the Messianic era when according to the law the king Moshiach will be a known sage prior to the geuala! Here is the Rambam, where we assume a person to be Moshiach before the he defeats the nations around him and before he gathers the exiles, and before he builds the Beis Hamikdash, etc.

4. If a king arises from the House of David who meditates on the Torah and occupies himself with the commandments like his ancestor David, in accordance with the written and oral Torah, and he will prevail upon all of Israel to walk in [the ways of the Torah] and strengthen its breaches, and he will fight the battles of G-d it may be assumed that he is Mashiach. If he did [these things] successfully (and defeated all the nations around him), built the Sanctuary on its site and gathered the dispersed of Israel he is definitely Mashiach! He will [then] correct the entire world to serve G-d in unity, as it is said, “For then I will turn to the peoples a pure tongue that all shall call upon the Name of G-d and serve Him with one consent.” (If he did not succeed to that extent or was killed, it is clear that he is not the [Mashiach] promised by the Torah … for all the prophets said that Mashiach is the redeemer of Israel and their savior, and he gathers their dispersed and reinforces their commandments…)
In fact as the Rambam explain Rabbi Akiva himself pointed to a person who was alive during his time as the Moshiach, namely Bar Kochba, who led a revolt against the Roman Empire to free the Holy Land. This only shows us the obligation of finding the right candidate to be Moshiach in our own days. 
Like we have posted here many times, the person who is from the house of Dovid, who meditates on the Torah day and night, who is fighing day and night that Jews should act like Jews should act, fights to fix any breaches in the Torah, and fights the wars of G-d is the Lubavitcher Rebbe himself, the one and only King Moshiach!

The Top 10 Reasons the Rebbe is Moshiach!!!

1. When Moshiach comes the world will be covered with the knowledge of G-d as the water covers the sea bed. We will know all the great secrets of the Torah. These secrets are the inner teachings of the torah which we call Chassidus. The person from where the wellsprings of these teachings come from in our days is the Rebbe.

2. He fights for the wholesomeness of the Torah. The Rebbe fights that the Torah should be learned and fulfilled in full without any compromises. The Rebbe instituted the study of the Rambam's Mishna Torah in order that every Jew should learn the entire Torah. As the Rambam says that by learning the Mishna Torah you can know the whole entire Torah, since it encompasses all of the laws applicable now and during the times of the temple. (As well as the laws of the identity of Moshiach).

3. The Rebbe fights for the wholesomeness of the Jewish people. A Jew is someone who is born to a Jewish mother of converted according to the halacha.

4. He fights for the wholesomeness of the Land of Israel. The Rebbe is always outspoken about not giving away any land because the Land is a gift form G-d to the Jewish People. Also, the vital importance of security of the land of Israel.

5. Many of the false want to be Messiahs and many of the well-meaning but confused Rabbis of today keep insisting and convincing other naive Jews that they have to drop everything and run fast to the Land of Yisrael. This is a sign of falsity and nonsensical hysteria. The Rebbe is quite different in this regard. The Rebbe tells us that Moshiach is coming therefore build where you are now. Make the land you are in a Land of Yisrael, a land that wants to do the will of Hashem. This is a true sign of a real Moshiach. He doesn’t' create hysteria, panic and fear but on the contrary he creates earning for the Geuala, positive energy for the Geuala, Torah and mitvos to bring the Geuala.

6. The Rebbe is associated with 770 which is the gematria of the house of the Moshiach.

7. The Gemmara says that Moshiach's name is Menachem.

8. The Rebbe told us the leader of the generation is Moshiach and to learn the Torah of the leader of the generation in Likkutey Sichos. Likkutey Sichos is the Torah of the Rebbe,

9. The Rebbe is the one Jewish Leader in the world who cares about every single Jew and in every single community. He sends his emissaries all over the world to bring the redemption to the Jewish people and world by spreading the 7 laws of Noach. Such an undertaking has never been done before in the history of the world.

10. The saying that the Rebbe approved of... Yechi Adonenu Marenu V'Rabenu Melech HaMoshiach Leolam Voed. !!! Long Live the Rebbe King Moshiach!!!

There are so many other reasons but we'll have to stop for now because we are counting until 10 today.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe encouraging Bibi Netanyahu's speech (in 1988).

Visit Jewish.TV for more Jewish videos.

Not everyday an Israili politician gives a speech that makes one feel proud to be Jewish.
He quoted the Megilas Ester, Mosher Rabenu and said that Israel is not afraid to stand alone if it has to.
