BIN: “A rabbi in a remote region of Mexico went to a dairy farm to purchase milk, and was shocked when he saw a vital element of the Third Temple right in front of his eyes: a red heifer calmly chewing its cud under the Baja sun.
“I’ve grown up with the stories, so I know how rare and valuable the red heifer is,” Rabbi Benny “Bentsion” Hershcovich told Breaking Israel News. “I’ve never seen a red heifer and I never expected to see one. My heart literally jumped when I saw it.”
The red heifer, one of the most perplexing Torah commandments, is a necessary element for purifying Jews in order to enable them to do the service in the Temple. more …
Opinion: The third temple is by far the most explosive prophecy of our day. Nothing will enrage the Edomite world more.
And, there can be no temple service without a High Priest from the line of Aaron.
On August 29, 2016, a significant step was taken towards reinstating the Temple service when the nascent Sanhedrin selected Rabbi Baruch Kahane as the next Kohen Gadol (high priest).
We can be absolutely assured that a third temple will happen. Daniel 9:27 is clear that a temple, complete with animal sacrifice, will be in existence for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation.
Jesus confirmed Daniel’s prophecy in His Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24:15):
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (whoever reads, let him understand)…”
Jesus was giving a prophecy to those who would be in Judea in that day. Jesus was speaking to the Jews who would witness the abomination. Antichrist will enter the temple and claim to be God (2 Thess. 2:4), the Jews will reject Him thereby beginning the great tribulation that will last for the next 3.5 years until the second coming of Jesus Christ.
The Red Heifer. Why red?
Genesis 36:1 “Now this is the genealogy of Esau, who is Edom.” Edom is Hebrew for red.
Hebrews 12:16 “See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son.”
Daniel 12:10 prophesies that in the last days, “many shall be purified and made white”; a reference to the purification ritual of the Red Heifer.
The Bible associates war, sin, and Satan with the color red.
“Red” in Hebrew is Edom, Genesis 36:1.
Isaiah 63:1-3 records the second coming of Jesus. In the prophecy Jesus comes from Edom and His robe is stained with blood.
The ashes of the red heifer then, symbolize the end of evil and the beginning of the Jew as purified with the ashes of Esau.
