Is This Cow Holy? Red Heifer and The Temple Mount

A red heifer has been born in the US and some Jews hope it will be used to resume animal sacrifices in the New Jewish Temple

The Temple Institute of Jerusalem is making many preparations to rebuild the third Jewish temple on Mount Moriah, so sacrifices and ceremonies described in the Old Testament can resume. There are all kinds of special accoutrements that need to be handcrafted in order to do things properly, like vessels and outfits, and such. These things are being made now in anticipation of the Messiah appearing on earth.

The physical temple is generally considered to be The Holy Place — where god hangs out on earth. Incidentally, it’s also the place antichrist will set up shop for a while. (see Abomination of Desolation).

Jesus said to pay attention. When you see the Abomination of Desolation standing in the Holy Place, you won’t even have time to grab your bug out bag — just run for your lives and get to the mountains because all hell is about to break loose.

Many Christian scholars believe the Abomination of Desolation already stood in the holy place, way back in 70 Ad when Jerusalem was sacked by the Romans. Others consider the previous event as a foreshadowing of much worse things to come in the Latter Days, which could officially start any moment.

Jesus’ warning about the Abomination in the holy place includes a qualifier about the reader using his/her discernment, so they can know what the Abomination of Desolation really is. But it seems like there is no consensus about it at this point.

These days, most of Mount Moriah, and the area where the previous Jewish temples stood, are controlled by Muslims, and they even have their own temple right where the Jewish temple is supposed to be. The common thinking is that the Muslim temple needs to be gone in order for the Jews to build theirs. The Muslim temple, called the Dome of the Rock, has been there since 691. It’s the spot from which Muḥammad is said to have ascended to heaven. It’s also assumed to be the place where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac to God. So, I guess you could call it a power spot.

Israel gained political control over the Mount area after the Six-Day War in 1967, but it allows an Islamic religious trust to have authority over the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock as a way of helping keep the peace. Since that time, non-Muslims have been allowed limited access to the area, but they are not allowed to pray on the Temple Mount — let alone conduct Jewish animal sacrifices. Any praying they do there has to be done in secret.

Other than making all the accoutrements, there are other things stopping the Jews from constructing a temple in a tinder box.

When these things have taken place, and we have made lasting peace with our enemies; when all Jews have returned to the Holy Land of Israel, and religious Jews have complete temporal and religious control over the land, then we will know that our Final Redemption has begun, and we can then turn our thoughts towards rebuilding the Holy Temple.

Making lasting peace with enemies seems impossible and divine intervention will obviously be required. The Jews believe this will come with the resurrection of Elijah, the prophet of old, who will help them overcome many hurdles, such as restoring the Sanhedrin that picks the High Priest out of the pure priestly bloodline. Where does one find a pure priest these days?

Meanwhile, until Elijah arrives, the Temple Institute in Jerusalem is manufacturing, according to strict scriptural specifications, the many sacred vessels priests use to conduct rituals in the Holy Temple. These items are on display at an exhibition in Jerusalem’s Old City Jewish Quarter.

Once the vessels are done, the priests must be purified with the ashes of an extremely rare red heifer. before they can do conduct their rituals. A very pure looking red heifer has apparently surfaced now in the United States and its owners contacted the Temple Institute for instructions on how to care for it to preserve it for holy service.
