They’ve found it!

Hopefully that got your attention! I have something very important to share, but we need to stay in “watcher mode” on this awhile longer before shouting it from the rooftops. This information comes from the Temple Institute, so it’s quite reliable. But I will explain after the article post why it hasn’t been proved yet beyond a shadow of doubt. You will have to visit the link to view the video:

Keep in mind that this article is posted on someone’s blog, so disregard the blog title, please. Disciples of Jesus have been watching for “the end” since He was first asked the question shortly before His crucifixion, “… what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3).

Now to the article …

PERFECT RED HEIFER DISCOVERED IN US TO BE SENT TO ISRAEL TO PURIFY COMING THIRD JEWISH TEMPLE

 | June 20, 2014

THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE

“And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD hath commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke:” Numbers 19:1,2

There is a group in Israel’s capital city of Jerusalem called the Temple Institute.For the past 27 years they have worked tirelessly to fashion all the items that will be needed to for worship in the Third Jewish Temple.  It is 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 stood in Israel, a total of nine red heifers were used. Jews believe that the appearance of a perfect red heifer would usher in the appearance of the long-awaited Messiah. The 10th red heifer has been found in America, and preparations are now underway to bring the animal to Israel.

“For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.” Jeremiah 30:5-7

The 9th chapter of the book of Daniel tells us that the Temple is indeed standing during the time of Jacob’s trouble as found in Jeremiah 30:7. Daniel learned much from the writings of the prophet Jeremiah. But Daniel goes on to say that when the Temple is rebuilt, it will be inhabited by the Antichrist – the false messiah. Daniel devotes multiple chapters to this man of sin that will arise and deceive the Jews by flatteries.

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27

The appearance of a perfect red heifer has sent shock waves amongst the Temple faithful in Israel, for they believe it will usher in the Messiah. But it will not. It will usher in a time of agony, bloodshed and woe the likes of which this world has never seen. It will start with a false messiah in a rebuilt Third Temple, and it will end with the time of Jacob’s trouble leading into the Day of the Lord from Joel chapters 2 and 3.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

This red heifer must be “without blemish” and others have been disqualified over recent years because a white hair has been discovered on the cow’s body AFTER its existence has already been announced. Let’s not fall prey to that possible disappointment.

For the sake of brevity, I’m going to give some bullet points to help my readers get the necessary information regarding the history leading up to this without a lot of “fluff language” on my part.

  • In Numbers 19 — LONG BEFORE THE BUILDING OF THE FIRST TEMPLE BY SOLOMON, SON OF KING DAVID — the descendants of Abraham, through his grandson Jacob (also called ISRAEL), received this command for purification of sin from the Lord God. This occurred shortly after the entire community was divinely released from bondage in Egypt and then guided by Moses and Aaron into “the wilderness.” (Find the details in the books of Exodus and Deuteronomy.) They were on their way to the land that God had first promised to Abram (Genesis 12:7). This land included the city of Jerusalem, which is currently a point of contention between Jews, Muslims and the Roman Catholic Church.
  • The first “building” used for worship was actually a huge tent, called THE TABERNACLE or Tent of Meeting. The Lord God gave Moses specific instructions on how it should be constructed, purified, and implemented as the Holy Place where God would meet with designated representatives of his “chosen people” — the Israelites — to instruct them on how to become and remain one cohesive nation under Almighty God.
  • The purification rituals (which included the ashes of a perfect red heifer) remained in place for thousands of years. They were still necessary when the Lord God gave specific instructions to David and his son, Solomon, for the building of THE FIRST TEMPLE, dedicated to Almighty God, in Jerusalem (on the Temple Mount). That temple was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.
  • After 70 years of captivity, prophesied by Jeremiah (25:11-14), a majority of the Israelites returned to Jerusalem, and rebuilt the temple. This SECOND TEMPLE stood until 70 A.D. when it was destroyed by the Romans, as foretold by Jesus shortly before his crucifixion and resurrection from the dead  (Matthew 24:2; Mark 13:2; Luke 21:6).
  • Most Jews and Jewish Messianic Christians were scattered among the nations of the world after that. They left to escape persecution, but it seemed to follow them wherever they went. Fast forward to World War II and the persecution under Hitler. The Jews needed to return to the homeland that God had given to their patriarch, Abraham. He had promised their return through the prophet Ezekiel: “I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of ISRAEL.” (Ezekiel 37:21-22, NIV)
  • Against all odds, the nation of ISRAEL was reestablished in 1948! Just as God had promised. But by that time, the descendants of Abraham through his oldest son by Hagar, ISHMAEL, and his grandson ESAU — collectively called Arabs (who believe in a god they call Allah) — had laid claim to Jerusalem as their holy city for the worship of Allah and “his prophet” Muhammed.
  • In a war that was instigated by the Arabs and miraculously finished by Almighty God IN SIX DAYS, Jerusalem was recaptured by ISRAEL in 1967. But the Temple Mount — where the first and second Jewish temples had stood — was immediately turned over to Jordan for administration because of the Muslim holy buildings that had been constructed there during the Middle Ages.

 

Now we come to modern day and  the Orthodox Jews’ desire to build a THIRD TEMPLE on the historical location where their  ancient family Torah says that God commanded it to be built. You can visit  http://templeinstitute.org to learn about the preparations that have been made thus far for rebuilding and reestablishing the functioning temple, as foretold in Ezekiel 40 – 48.

THE PERFECT RED HEIFER has been a missing link in reimplementing the sacrifice and offerings rituals that Orthodox Jews believe is still necessary to become right with God — they do not believe in Jesus of Nazareth as their Savior from sin and are continually awaiting the Messiah’s arrival.

Now let’s read again the last three paragraphs of the article noted previously (my emphasis in italics):

The 9th chapter of the book of Daniel tells us that the Temple is indeed standing during the time of Jacob’s trouble as found in Jeremiah 30:7. Daniel learned much from the writings of the prophet Jeremiah. But Daniel goes on to say that when the Temple is rebuilt, it will be inhabited by the Antichrist – the false messiah. Daniel devotes multiple chapters to this man of sin that will arise and deceive the Jews by flatteries.

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27

[In another translation: “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple [Hebrew: “week”] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”]

The appearance of a perfect red heifer has sent shock waves amongst the Temple faithful in Israel, for they believe it will usher in the Messiah. But it will not. It will usher in a time of agony, bloodshed and woe the likes of which this world has never seen. It will start with a false messiah in a rebuilt Third Temple, and it will end with the time of Jacob’s trouble leading into the Day of the Lord from Joel chapters 2 and 3.

I apologize for the length of this post, but please hang in with me for one more VERY IMPORTANT prophecy connection!

Open your Bible to Matthew 24 and see for yourself that JESUS REFERRED TO DANIEL’S PROPHECY when revealing information to his closest disciples about “the end of the age.” JESUS SAID (via an easier to understand translation):

“The gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, AND THEN THE END WILL COME.

“SO WHEN YOU SEE standing in THE HOLY PLACE [the rebuilt temple]  the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel — let the reader understand — then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains … for then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now — and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.” (Matthew 24:14-22, New International Version)

There’s more, but I think that’s enough for now. I will conclude by pointing out that JESUS SAID the temple must be standing in order for this prophesied “abomination” to cause desolation in “the holy place.” And the ashes of a perfect, red heifer — as inspected and selected by the Jewish priests currently serving Almighty God — MUST be available for the purification ceremony that MUST take place before the Holy of Holies (where the ark of the covenant will be placed when the ark is located) can be performed to remove the sins of ISRAEL.

THE GOOD NEWS for those who will believe it: Jesus has already done that! (Romans 4:13-25)
