With the current war in the Middle East (‘Swords Of Iron’ since October 7, 2023), we are seeing such an increase unfolding, even approaching Biblical proportions, to the point that many believe we’re entering the End-Times Psalm 83 war. Let’s add to this the prior Israeli statements that the ‘red heifers’ (Numbers 19) will be qualified to be sacrificed by Passover 2024, and their intent to sacrifice one on the Mount of Olives at that time or at the latest on Shavuot (Pentecost) 2024. Suddenly, we appear to be faced with the real possibility of the Oblation Altar, and the construction of the Tribulation-Temple being built in just a few months from now.
Adonai instructed the Israelites to find a pure, undefiled parah adumah, red heifer, and bring it to Eleazar the priest. Unlike other sacrifices where a male animal was offered, the slaughter for the purification water was female. A heifer is a young cow that has never birthed a calf. The animal’s hair was to be entirely of one color: red. However, the word adumah and adamah (earth) have the same root so the color is more brownish red like the earth than bright red like a rose. Its hair was to be straight to ensure that the heifer had never worn a yoke.
