The Red Heifer

 

red_heiferIt has been reported that a red heifer has been born that meets the qualifications of being used in the cleansing of the future Temple to be built in Israel.  Up until now, one of the major barriers to the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple has been the lack of a red heifer, and without one it would not be possible to resume Temple worship.  Now that a candidate has been found that could change everything. 

This red heifer was born in the United States, and the owners of the red heifer contacted the Temple institute in Jerusalem to receive instructions on how to care for the animal.  It is hoped that this red heifer will eventually be transported to Israel to be used for the purification of the priests and the vessels that will be used in the rebuilt Jewish Temple.  According to Jewish Law, the animal cannot even have one black hair, nor have been bred or used for labor by placing a yoke onto the beast.

The appearance of a perfect red heifer has apparently sent shock waves amongst the Temple Faithful in Israel, for they believe it will usher in the Messiah.  But it will not.  It will however, usher in a time of agony, bloodshed and woe the likes of which this world has never seen.  It will start with the False Prophet in a rebuilt Third Temple and it will end with the Battle of Armageddon. 

The Bible teaches that one day there will again be a Temple of God in Jerusalem. (Ezekiel 41-45)  A group in Jerusalem called the Temple Institute has been tirelessly working for the past 27 years to fashion all of the items that will be needed for worship in the Third Jewish Temple.  It has been a painstakingly slow job but one that they have accomplished.   One missing ingredient, however, was a perfect, unblemished red heifer as found in Numbers 19, whose ashes would be used in a purification cleansing ritual for the Temple.  For the entire time that the Temple has stood in Israel, a total of nice red heifers have been used.  The 10th heifer has been found in America.  When a red heifer is born, which is quite unusual, it may well be an indication that the temple will soon be rebuilt.
