Helen, yes it is confusing when they do that. They have even 'dug up' some old posts from people who are now deceased, redating them to look as if they were written very recently. I think your comment was probably to Mac, the one who asked the question.

In the book of Daniel & Rev. they speak of the antichrist that will rise up, and one of the things he does is stop the daily sacrifice, stand in the temple and claim he is God. they need this red heifer for the daily sacrifice, the hard ? is how can the temple be built while the dome of the rock sits on Gods holy ground?

RitaH - My post below is an old one that has been dug up and re-dated by ChristiaNet. They do that from time to time. I have no idea now who I was talking to at the time.

Helen_5378, I receive lots of emails from people I have never heard of, about all manner of things. This is not at all unusual. Doesn't this happen to you also? Most of them are only worthy of the delete button.

I've another man named duane so i'll put my last name also..
The significance of the red heifer is...
It is needed for the daily sacrifice,
the isrealies have already made all of the instruments of gold that is needed for this purpose.
and many other things they have done to start this again..

I am actually wondering what is the significance of the email you received from someone you have never heard of.

** I have read somewhere in the past that there is a large section of the Jewish people that don't believe that Jesus has already come in the flesh.**

I've never met a single Jew in my life who does not believe that Jesus has come in the flesh. It would be foolish to deny a historical fact.

But they do NOT believe that He is the Messiah.

I have read somewhere in the past that there is a large section of the Jewish people that don't believe that Jesus has already come in the flesh. They are still waiting for the messiah and that is evidently where the red heifer idea comes from.
---MARK on 3/25/07

Donna: "Jews are unsaved until they know Jesus as Savior." Throughout the OT, God says that He is the God and Savior. Theefore, the people in the OT are also saved for those who believe. Just a minor point.

When I was a kid, 45 years ago, there were already red heifers being born. I wouldn't bother with paying any atttention to it. It's a common thing.

The AntiChrist is not going to walk into the literal Temple in Jerusalem because that one will never be rebuilt - it has been tried before. But he will seek to enter the new Temple which is the Christian Church.

While I do not believe that a Pope will be the Anti-Christ, those that feel that the anti-Christ will set himself up in the Catholic Church may be closer to the truth than they realize.
---lorra8574 on 3/25/07

To the Jews it may be important, Numbers 19, if they had any priests. But we have Jesus Christ. There are no more sacrifices for sin Hebrews 10:26 (read all of C10). And animal sacrifices are no longer acceptable to God.

As for the Temple, we are the new Temple, part of living Temple that is Jesus Christ John 2:19-22; 1 Cor 6:19. Anyone who seeks to rebuild the physical temple at the geographic Jerusalem has sided with the Jews of the Old Covenant.

Please don't talk about my sister's children that way. It really does hurt. We still think they're cute as buttons.

The Red Heifer story has been around for a while. I recall there was something on these blogs about a Texas rancher seeking to breed one.

I don't think they are that hard to produce. The problem is getting it sacrificed and burned to produce the ashes. As all the Cohenim are technically in a state of ritual uncleanness (as indeed all Jews have been since the destruction of the Temple), how can it be done?
---Jack on 3/25/07

Donna2277--There is an organization in Israel called the Temple Institute that (if you look for on the web) you should find informative.

They have made reconstuctions of the utensils for the service, including gold and silver ash shovels, which will not be very practical, as those metals are great conductors of heat.
---Jack on 7/31/06

Exzucah and Melissa--My interest here is academic. Of course, the Jews are carrying out plans of antichrist (or perhaps THE Antichrist). The meaning of the Temple and sacrifices aside, some eschatology claims that the Temple is where the Antichrist, during the Tribulation, will reveal his identity and demand allegiance from all men. It may be a sign of the times. But all information I have about this "new" temple is hearsay. Yes, Jews are unsaved until they know Jesus as Savior.

**does it occur to anyone that these people are following a plan of satan (who doesn't accept Jesus as the Messiah either - ha-ha!)**

Actually, Satan KNOWS that Jesus is the Messiah. So he's one step up on the Jews.
---Jack on 7/30/06

OK - so everything is in place for the deluded restoration of Old Testament rituals - does it occur to anyone that these people are following a plan of satan (who doesn't accept Jesus as the Messiah either - ha-ha!) They are puppets in a plan to set up the end. Jesus already won the victory on Calvary, but the devil wants a rematch! All those who don't accept Jesus will witness the victory Part 2 at their own judgment!

Many today bring a curse on themselves because they give their birthright away saying it is Israels, they are the children of God, Jesus called them the children of the devil, They don't believe in the Father and the Son that makes them Anti-Christ which we are commanded not to have fellowship. If you want to do something for Israel preach Jesus to them unless they get saved they wiil perish.
---Exzucuh on 7/30/06

Do you realize that when God does something and makes it law, nothing can change that except God. If he say's you cannot do human sacrifice you cannot, but God can and did sacrificing his own Son. God say's Israel is cut off and are not his people he has raised up a people who were not a people and given them a name above all names and the inheritance that should have been Israel's. The story of Jacob and Esau.

Hebrews 7:12-15 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

John the baptist was the last levitical priest his father should have been high priest but Herod had appointed Caiaphas,not of the house of Aaron for political reasons, All other heirs of the office of high priest
were killed by Herod and any one of the house of David that theatened Herods throne. Herod and Caiaphas could not stop the work of God and nothing that happens in Israel will ever hinder that work either.

Hey, In North Dakota a white Buffilo was born. According to their beliefs that means the end of the worlds is near.

Seems some people here are spouting about Kohenate who don't know what they are talking about, like assuming that nobody knows who are Aaronic priests.

Actually known Cohenim who have had genetic testing all show a certain marker on the Y chromosome one gets from the father.

Like I said, do a Wikipedia or Google search on "Cohen" or "Kohen" and you might learn something you didn't know before.

Exzuch--While (from the Christian perspective) the Cohenate (Levitical priesthood) has no significance, it does for Jews and there are still priestly families recognized as such with special duties.

Bet you didn't know that! Just ask your local synagogue, or do a search for Cohen (possibly spelled Kohen).
---Jack on 7/29/06

Excucuh--well, since the Jews are still looking for their messiah, and don't believe Christ is our priest and intercessor, yes, they are in rebellion against what God has now established. They will re-build the Temple if they want to and find a "son of Aaron" (by whatever rationalization it takes)if they want one. This is just a matter of curiosity to fear involved.
---Donna2277 on 7/29/06

It would be impossible to find a true Son of Aaron because John the Baptist was the last one and the end of the levitical priesthood,God then changing the priesthood to a Melchisidec preisthood after an endless life, making now Christ forever our priest and intercessor,Any one trying to resurrect the old priesthood would be in rebellion against what God has now established.
---Exzucuh on 7/29/06

Acts 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
Get your eyes off of this non profitable information which leads to fear and false speculation and put them on Jesus and the preaching of the Kingdom of God now, Get faith for now and you will be blessed.

The real question, as I said, is not the red heifer.

The real question is how to find a Cohen (priest, descendent of Aaron) who is not in a state of ritual impurity (as technically all Jews have been since the fall of the Temple) who is qualified to perform the required sacrifice?

I've heard it suggested to find some priestly families (yes, they know which are) who are willing to have their newborn sons raised like the Boy in the Plastic Bubble, but I don't know who would agree to this.

---Betty2 on 7/29/06

Jack - I didn't say it would have any personal significance to me. It seems to be meaningful to the Jews who, of course, are still looking for the messiah. Maybe you can explain to me what they hope to accomplish over there by sacrificing a red heifer (if that is their intention.) Where in end-times prophecy is this mentioned?

I've heard rumors about the red heifer for several years now. I heard of one in Texas but that it was rejected due to imperfection. Heard they are trying to breed one in Israel.Did your e-mail ask for a donation?

As some interpret prophecy, the Temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt on the Temple mount, prior to, or early in, the Tribulation period.Temple rituals and sacrifice are to be re-instituted. The pre trib rapture folks may not care. But the antichrist is to reveal his identity in the Temple
---Donna2277 on 7/28/06

It is a very old email story and red heifers have been born before in Israel.
---Susie on 7/28/06

Melissa, what significance can it possibly have?

You don't think that the restoration of sacrifices in Jerusalem will have any spiritual meaning do you?

If they do, then the sacrifice of Christ was IN VAIN!
---Jack on 7/28/06

This is true. I checked it out by typing "red heifer born in Israel" in the search box. Check it out and please explain how this can be dismissed as insignificant.
