The last red heifer candidate born in New Jersey back in 2015 was eventually disqualified by the strict Jewish standards of a perfect heifer. The latest candidate was born in Israel, a more fitting place for the Red Heifer’s birth. As a reminder, the current PM of Israel is the only one born in Israel.
The red heifer was born on August 28, 2018 and must be three years of age before it can be sacrificed to cleanse the temple. That would be September of 2021 time frame and depending on how you view a generation in the bible, would not over reach the 80 year generation given in Psalm 90:10 from the year Israel became a nation in May of 1948. Adding 7 years (Tribulation period) to 2021 brings us to 2028, and 2028 minus 1948 = 80.
2028 is the year 5788 on the Jewish calendar – 8, the number for new beginnings. You can see the calf in the video below.
The Temple Institute has been preparing for the 3rd Jewish temple for some time now, but the missing ingredient needed to re-establish the temple is the Red Heifer. Finding one that meets strict biblical requirements has been a task that seemingly has been impossible to meet…until now.
The ashes of the Red Heifer will be used to purify the temple for service and the heifer must be 3 years of age at the time of sacrifice. One has been found in the state of New Jersey, that so for, has met the biblical standards. She is beautiful and just turned two years old….
The coming construction of the 3rd temple in Israel has taken another step closer to fruition.
A 60-day international crowdfunding campaign to finance the construction of a modern Third Temple on the Temple Mount garnered $105,000 worth of donations from over 900 donors around the globe by Rosh Hashana, the Temple Institute said Sunday.
“The funds raised from the campaign will be used to continue the research of the Institute and to commission additional architectural plans,” the statement said. “The architects will fuse Jewish law with modern technology to prepare for a fully modern Third Temple, Kosher to the letter of the law…”
The infamous 9th of Av will fall on August 4-5, a week from today. Menachem Av is the 5th month on the Jewish calendar. Why is this significant?
After Moses sent 12 spies into the land of Canaan, the spies return on the eighth day of Avand report that the land is unconquerable. That night, the 9th of Av, the people cry. They did not believe that God could help them, and the people as a whole were persuaded that it was not possible to take the land. As a result, the entire nation was made to wander in the desert for 40 years Numbers 13, 14.
The First Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av (423 BCE).
The second Temple was destroyed on the 9th of Av (68 CE).
Betar, the last stronghold in the heroic Bar Kochba rebellion, fell to the Romans on the 9th of Av of the year 3893 (133 CE) after a three-year siege. 580,000 Jews died by starvation or the sword, including Bar Kochba, the leader of the rebellion.
The Jews of England were expelled by King Edward I on the 9th of Av in 1290.
The Jews of Spain were expelled by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella on the 9th of Av of 1492, terminating many centuries of flourishing Jewish life in that country.
World War II and the Holocaust, historians conclude, was actually the long drawn-out conclusion of World War I that began in 1914. Germany declared war on Russia, effectively catapulting the First World War into motion, on the 9th of Av.
Clearly the 9th of Av historically has been a day of judgment against Israel. Will something of significance happen this year? Israel does not currently have a temple but there is some new significant movement in this area with the recent statement of finding a perfect Red Heifer and now a campaign to complete architectural plans for the Temple.
The Temple Institute launches an Indiegogo campaign to build the Third Temple, under the title: ‘Don’t make history, make the future.’
“Now is time for one of its most ambitious projects yet: completing architectural plans for the actual construction……
“It is not enough to wait and pray for the Third Temple,” it concludes. “It is a Biblical obligation to build it.”
The Temple Institute’s campaign will run for sixty days, ending on September 25 – during the Jewish New Year, or Rosh Hashana.
The campaign aims to raise $100,000 toward a building fund for the Third Temple, as part of its wider campaigns to train kohen-priests for Temple duties and rebuild the instruments in the priestly services.
