Chabad links the fake collapse of Communism with the naming of Schneerson as messiah and liberation of the world

Swords into plowshares or the Meeting of the Presidents of the United States and Russia in 1992

The surprise of the evening was the presence of two presidents, representing two world powers that had previously fought each other, and were now sitting next to each other. This event points to one of the signs of the coming Liberation: “And they will beat swords into ploughshares.”

According to the Lubavitcher Rebbe, King Moshiach, the peak of Real and Complete Liberation occurs during the period of history that we are witnessing. But are there any signs of the world moving towards Total Liberation? On the one hand, we, the Chassidim of the Rebbe, wholeheartedly believe in his words, but at the same time, we must also know that according to the teachings of Chabad, faith is not only blind faith, but also the need for understanding by the human mind.

Let us begin with a story that will help us better understand what is happening in the world in the light of the progress towards complete Liberation.

Meeting of two presidents in New York

In 1992, the President of America gave a fiery speech. A special speech that made a huge impression on everyone, and, most importantly, was mentioned by the Rebbe in a conversation with Hasidim a few days after this event. The President gave his speech on Wednesday, January 29, 1992, before the Sabbath of the weekly Torah portion, Mishpatim, and in his words touched upon the topic of weapons reduction. He proposed using the money raised from this reduction to provide food and increase the prosperity of the nation.

Two days later, an amazing event occurred, which forever remained on the pages of history and influenced the political situation throughout the world. This happened in New York - the city of the head of the generation of the Rebbe King Moshiach. The heads of many states gathered there, but that was not the main thing... The surprise of the evening was the presence of two presidents, representing two world powers, who had previously fought with each other, and are now sitting next to each other in the city of King Moshiach: the President of the Russian Federation and the President of the United States of America.

The decision of the summit left an indelible impression: a reduction in weapons production, an end to world wars, mutual cooperation, and the use of the proceeds for the benefit of humanity throughout the world! This event, without a doubt, points to one of the signs of the coming Liberation: “And they will beat swords into ploughshares.”

Let us note that this is not a literary presentation of any article, but directly an excerpt from the Rebbe’s conversation with the Hasidim.


Based on materials from Washington ProFile: January 31 - February 1, 1992. Meeting between President George H. W. Bush and Boris Yeltsin in New York. The first meeting of the heads of Russia and the United States. The presidents discussed the problems of the collapse of the USSR, agreed to continue the process of reducing strategic nuclear weapons, cooperate in the field of arms trade, the field of non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), etc. A joint declaration was signed, which stated that Russia and the United States do not consider each other potential adversaries.

Torah and reason

How could this special solution come about? At first glance, you might think, why not? Sound logic obliges everyone to live in peace and brotherhood without war. But if you really think about it, you will find that this sound logic has somehow remained dormant for so many generations until today... and what suddenly happened? What prompted the peoples of the world to change their usual path?

We find the answer to this question in the same conversation of the Rebbe: “The human mind is too small to understand the laws of the Torah. The fact that we can understand them today is possible thanks to the giving of the Torah, since through the giving of the Torah a connection was established between the material world and Divinity, and our lower world became a vessel for Divinity (holiness), and this automatically affects our mind." . Since the giving of the Torah, the mind has been able to think according to its laws. For example, take the commandment: “Thou shalt not steal.” Today, people themselves understand perfectly well why they should not steal, and this happens only because the Torah entered our world.


At the same time, we must fulfill the commandments, even if we understand why they must be fulfilled, because the Almighty commanded us to do so, and not because we understand... Also, the seven commandments for the descendants of Noah are obligated to fulfill them because the Almighty wants it that way.

The sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak, decreed in his time that all aspects of the work have been completed, and we are ready to meet the righteous Moshiach. In 1991, the rabbis signed a decree from the rabbinical court that the Rebbe was the Moshiach of our generation and that the time of Liberation had come. The decree of the Torah has entered our world to such an extent that even the nations of the world are aware of the need to “beat swords into plowshares.” You can read about further actions in this direction in the article “ Chronicle of Nuclear Weapons Reduction (1991-2006) .”

Avoid conflicts

Rebbe King Moshiach asks: “Why, after what we have learned, after all the signs of the onset of Liberation, are we still in exile, although we should have long ago gathered together with all the Jews from all over the world in Jerusalem, the Holy City and the Third Temple ? Why was the order not given to build the Temple?”

Therefore, the Rebbe asks to add in all aspects that truly bring Liberation closer. This week we will do this thanks to the title of the weekly chapter - “Mishpatim”. The trial takes place between two people who do not get along with each other. We will try to avoid this, to live with friends in peace, love and harmony, even when it is difficult, in order to achieve Liberation.

Our weekly chapter also talks about good deeds, helping each other, and so we will add in material assistance to people, as it is said: “Great is the tzedakah that brings Liberation closer.” And we will be honored with the revelation of the Rebbe of the King of Moshiach instantly and right now!
