The Tenth Red Heifer

From Moses to the Second Temple: Only Nine Red Heifers

The Mishna teaches that up until the destruction of the Second Temple, ashes had been prepared from a total of only nine red heifers. The very first red heifer was processed by Moses himself - as the verse states, "... have them bring you a red heifer." The second was done by the prophet Ezra in the days of the First Temple, and during the entire era of the Second Temple only seven more heifers were used for ashes. This was enough to provide for the nation's needs for purification throughout all those years.

The names of all the High Priests who prepared those seven heifers during Second Temple times are recorded by the Mishna: Simon the Just and Yochanan each made two; El'yhoeini ben Hakof, Chanamel HaMitzri and Yishmael ben Pi'avi processed one heifer each. Thus, from the time that Moses received the commandment of the red heifer from the Holy One, blessed be He, until the destruction of the Second Temple, purifying ashes had been produced by the hands of these great leaders from a total of nine red heifers.

The Tenth Red Heifer Will be Prepared by the Messiah

In recounting this historical record in his commentary to the Mishna, the great Maimonides ends with the enigmatic statement: "... and the tenth red heifer will be accomplished by the king, the Messiah; may he be revealed speedily, Amen, May it be God's will."

With this amazing statement, Maimonides recounts an ancient tradition - that the tenth red heifer is associated with the Messianic era. Does this perhaps mean that the appearance of a red heifer in these waning end times is an indication, a forerunner of the appearance of the Messiah himself, who will officiate at its preparation?

If there has been no red heifer for the past 2,000 years, perhaps it is because the time was not right; Israel was far from being ready. But now... what could it mean for the times we live in, to have the means for purification so close at hand? With the words of Maimonides in mind, we cannot help but wonder and pray: If there are now red heifers... is ours the era that will need them?

http://www.templeinstitute.org/red_heifer/tenth_red_heifer.htm


Has a red heifer been born in Israel? Israel Television and Hebrew newspapers recently reported that a red heifer was born at a youth village in Kfar Chasidim.

The heifer, currently a year and a half old, has been meticulously checked to see if she is completely red. If the heifer has even one white or black hair, or has any blemishes, it is immediately disqualified.

So far, none have been found.

Orthodox Jews have been trying for a number of years to breed cows in order to produce a red heifer, but all their attempts have failed. However, even the ultra-Orthodox have accepted this animal as a possible candidate for being the red heifer.

I don't have any personal earth-shattering revelation from the Lord, but I feel from this point onward things in our world are going to change quickly and dramatically.

Also, I feel our lovely little message board may become a very important spot in the years to come for many more people will come here asking questions, looking for answers, and seeking comfort and prayer.

Hello everyone, I'm new here. My name is T.J. and I love Israel and the study of end times. Jesus (Yeshua) is awaiting the Father's call to come for His Bride! The Spirit and the bride say COME!

When I heard about the Sanhedrin coming back together after so many years since the time of Jesus, I thought it was very interesting. Now I see that they will embrace the false messiah just as the rejected the TRUE ONE, JESUS!
The upcoming 4 blood moons in 2014 will be significant as well.

I also think this Obamacare nonsense is a way to have complete control over our lives. GPS tracking in our cars, all privacy eradicated...we're laying the foundation for the one world leader. And when the Pope said we should not get bogged down in the weeds over issues like abortion and homosexuality I thought...well he's apostate. So it's all coming together. I even was pondering one day how the devil is such a loser and always tries to rip God off. Consider this....The Lord in all His Glory and splendor is omniscient and ominpresent....the devil isn't...so he had to work on the hearts of men to invent the world wide web...the internet, to monitor and control.
LOL......God sits in the heavens and laughs.....satan should just give up.....he lost at the cross and he'll lose again....very soon! Hallelujah!!

Isaiah 11
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. Gen. 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

It's been awhile since I've been here too...

To prove it, Kindgo often used to post "The Golden Report". Anyone remember that?

Anyway, I thought the news story was important enough, so that's why I'm here.

Whether this finally happens next month, next year or a hundred years from now, its called a “covenant with death” in Isaiah 28:18 and God is going to annul it,

Unfortunately for those making the agreement, God promises Jerusalem will be a burdensome stone bringing destruction upon them all,

I saw this news story and found it to be quite interesting...

Israel National News says that Obama will “Force” Israel and Palestinians to “Confirm Peace Covenant”.

By the way, this will happen during Blood Moons: Four 'blood-red' total lunar eclipses will fall on Passover and Sukkot in 2014 and 2015, the same back-to-back occurrences at the time of 1492, 1948 and 1967 .

US 'Will Force' Israel-PA Deal

Report: US will lay down its own outline for an accord in January, is determined to reach solution by mid-2014. Israel National News

The United States intends to try and force a peace agreement on Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA), IDF Radio reported Monday.

The radio station says the US has informed Israel and the Palestinian Authority that if negotiations between them do not advance, Washington will propose its own solution, that will include a US position on every point that is in contention. In effect, according to the report, this will be an attempt to force the sides to agree on a solution formulated by the US.

MK Zehava Galon (Meretz) was quoted as saying Monday that senior US officials told her the US offer would be presented in January of 2014. PA sources also cited January as the month in which the US intends to propose, or impose, its plan.

The US moves comes after three months of talks between the sides which have reportedly made very little headway.

The US plan reportedly is similar to the Clinton outline, offered by President Bill Clinton in late 2000, which is based on an Israeli retreat to 1949 Armistice lines, and some swaps of territory.

The Obama Administration is reportedly determined to achieve “a diplomatic breakthrough” by mid-2014, and believes that Israel under Binyamin Netanyahu and the PA under Mahmoud Abbas are capable of reaching agreement.

Until now, the talks were based on the idea that the two sides negotiate directly, with the US only acting as a mediator.

The American decision to present a proposed agreement was reportedly communicated by several senior officials, including the Special Representative to the talks, Martin Indyk. Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly briefed Netanyahu on the matter when they last met, in Italy.

IDF Radio is run by the Israeli military and partially staffed by soldiers but is considered to be a mainstream news outlet that is not substantially different from mainstream civilian outlets.

Vatican City (AFP) - Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas during a Vatican audience on Thursday invited Pope Francis to the Middle East, saying he would "walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ".

Speaking to Vatican foreign affairs official Dominique Mamberti after the talks, he said: "It was a pleasure and I invited him to the Holy Land".

Abbas gave the pope a ceramic panel with a view of Bethlehem and a Bible as gifts, while Francis gave him a decorative pen with which Abbas said he hoped to sign a peace agreement with Israel.

"Soon, soon," the pope responded.

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


A Turkish television show featured prominent Muslim and Jewish leaders agreeing on the coming end times and declaring an expectation to live in “love, peace, friendship, brotherhood, good faith, kindness.”

The program, from Turkish A9 Television, featured several Muslim leaders and two officials from the Sanhedrin, the traditional seat of Jewish justice.

The Muslim participants are Oktar Babuna and Adnan Oktar, both prominent Islamic personalities. The Jews are Rabbi Yeshayahu Hollander, a member of the Sanhedrin and an associate justice on the Jerusalem Court for Issues of Bnei Noah, and Rabbi Ben Abrahamson, a historian and consultant at Jerusalem’s Rabbinical Court on matters regarding Islam.

The discussion, broadcast Nov. 21, focused on the Jewish Tanakh’s description of the end times, what the Quran states and the possibility that the religions’ expected messiahs – the Mahdi for Muslims and King Messiah for the Jews – are one and the same.

The Sanhedrin calls itself a special court for matters concerning the nation. It explains that while the Israeli government is secular, the Sanhedrin is part of the “historical government of the Jewish people.”

The panel members mark the prophecies concerning the coming end times.

Said Babuna: “The wars and violence coming to an end in the time of the King Messiah. Rabbi Hollander has read the quotes about peace from the Torah. ‘I will take away the chariots … and the battle bow will be broken. … He [King Messiah] will proclaim peace to the nations.’ Zechariah Chapter 9:10.
“So here in these quotes it is said that the armaments will be stopped. Explain it to us a little bit, interpret it for us,” said Adnan Oktar.

“Armaments will be stopped, all weapons will be taken out of use, inshaAllah. And the King Messiah, Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will bring peace to the nations. Peace will come to the whole world,” said Babuna.

“So in the end times there will be no more tanks, cannon balls or rifles. That is good,” Adnan Oktar said. “So it says that there will be no more military maneuvers. There will be no more wars. That is good.

“That is the promise of Allah,” Oktar said, “there will be peace in the world.”

However, two key experts on Islam and the Middle East told WND there are concerns raised by the content of the interview.

Walid Shoebat, a former Muslim Brotherhood activist who now is a Christian researching Islam, told WND the encounter “has prophetic significance. ”

“Turkey is leading Israel into making a peace treaty, which Isaiah calls ‘a covenant with death’ (Isaiah 28:15) which will happen in Egypt (Isaiah 30:1-2),” he said. “Soon Turkey is likely to confirm the Camp David Accord, which is the main concern for Israel and its neighbor Egypt and if this happens, then we need to be looking upwards, for our redemption draweth nigh.

“The Muslim world is awaiting an Islamic Messiah who will make a covenant (Ba’ya) for seven years. If in doubt, this interview will tell you that this Mahdi will come from a non-Arab region and will enter Jerusalem and make a covenant with the sons of Aaron (the Jews) as has always been stated by Adnan Oktar,” he said.

Shoebat commented further:

Whoever imagined that before Jesus’ second coming that Israel must be reestablished with its religious legal institution, the Sanhedrin, the very agency that put him on trial before a Jewish Council. Recently, the Sanhedrin, still, chose someone else besides its rightful Messiah, and have even embraced the Islamic idea, that Messiah could be the Islamic Mahdi.

On A9 TV with the Turkish influential Muslim Adnan Oktar, an ardent agent of the Turkish Islamist regime had Yeshayahu Hollander a leading justice of the Sanhedrin. During the interview, the legal justice, Hollander, quoted verses that pertain to the Millennium Kingdom of Messiah while deliberately ignoring what comes before; the Antichrist and the Tribulation Period.

The selective verses given by Hollander were completely and purposefully taken out of context. Hollander gave reconciliatory verses from Scripture as to create a peace treaty between Turkey and Israel. During the interview, Hollander of the Sanhedrin started the program by quoting Zechariah 9:10 ‘The battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the nations.’

No other verses from Zechariah 9 were given. The prudent will begin to realize that Israel’s main enemy is mentioned within the context of Zechariah 9:13 the Lord declares, ‘I will rouse your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Yavan.’ In this passage, Israel is seen fighting against Ionia or Yavan, which is simply a province that was located on the west coast of modern Turkey, the very nation the Sanhedrin visited to embrace the idea of Mahdi as Messiah.

This is crucial, because the clear context of this battle is the return of Christ: ‘Then Jehovah will appear over them’ and fight on their behalf. So in the end times, at the time when Jesus returns, the Jews (Zion) will be engaged in a war with Turkey (Yavan) and then peace will reign.

Oktar in the interview comforts the Sanhedrin promising that the government of Turkey will establish peace between Turkey, Israel, Egypt and the Palestinians.

Mustafa Aykol, a Turkish newspaper columnist and frequent Erdogan defender, said his Justice and Development Party, known by its Turkish initials, AKP, is a model for Islamist parties in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya. In a new book, ‘Islam Without Extremes: A Muslim Case for Liberty,’ Aykol told Reuters that there can be liberalism within Islam and challenges the authoritarian interpretations of Iran, Saudi Arabia and militant groups.

Today, we see Egypt falling as we have stated years ago and a current civil war is on its way.

So why is the Sanhedrin desperate to make peace with Turkey? Aykol adds: ‘Israel cannot afford to lose Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan at the same time. The U.S. should be much more active in trying to reconcile Ankara and Tel Aviv. Once this is achieved, the next step should be to re-launch the Syrian-Israeli dialogue under Turkish mediation.’

Turkey is the hope of Israel, even if they have to accept Mahdi.

He explains most people know about the idea of a reign of peace during the end times.

But that peace, according to the Bible, is not based on God and will not last.

Another expert, Joel Richardson, author of “The Islamic Antichrist,” “Islam and the End Times,” and “The Mideast Beast,” recently was part of an A9 TV conversation with Adnan Oktar in which Oktar described the God of the Bible and Allah of the Quran as “the same God.”

“We both love the same prophets, we both believe in the same hereafter, we both believe in heaven and hell, we both believe in the same destiny,” he said. “Consequently, there are many aspects that we have an alliance about.”

He also said: “King Messiah has been anticipated for about four thousand years. The time has come. The founding of the state of Israel is a portent of it anyway. The founding of the state of Israel is the portent of the appearance of the King Messiah. There is an intense inclination toward religion among Jews and that also is a portent of the appearance of King Messiah.”

Oktar said the “Mahdi” will be “active in the world in alliance with Christians and put away the atheist, materialist system.”

Richardson explained as a Christian he doesn’t believe in alliances with Muslims.

“But what I do believe in is building friendships,” he said.

He told WND that the religious leaders are well-intentioned but in error.

He said, for example, the idea that the Allah of the Muslims is the same as God of the Bible is false.

“The God of the Bible is revealed in his character, the fact he’s a father. Throughout the Tanakh, God revealed is a God who draws near, hears, sees us, appears through the vessel of the angel of the Lord, wrestles with Jacob,” he said. “The god of the Quran is a purely transcendent being that never reveals himself, doesn’t relate to his followers in a loving way … calls them his slaves.”

He said it’s important that faithful Christians not start making covenants with non-Christians.

“It’s essential that Muslims recognize the fact they they need to reject the false prophet Muhammad and become followers of Jesus, the true historical Jesus of the Bible, not the false Jesus of the Quran,” he said.

While Oktar contends the Islamic Mahdi and the Messiah are one and the same, Richardson has argued in his writings that the Mahdi actually is the one known as the Antichrist.

Oktar expressed high hopes for mankind during the end times.

“We will embrace each other, we will become brothers. In the time of our prophet, Muslims married Jewish women, they ate each other’s food, they have done trade; they were living as brothers, as friends. The same days will come again. According to our belief the Mahdi that will appear will rule over the Jews with the original of the Torah, he will rule over the Christians with the original of the Gospel and he will rule over Muslims with the Quran. Love, peace, friendship, brotherhood, good faith, kindness will envelop all around.”
