I don’t know how many of my readers have heard about the Temple Institute in Israel. The Temple Institute is an organization that is working on building the 3rd Temple. They have already made the vessels and instruments that will go inside the Temple, they have built the stone alter for sacrifices and are actually practicing sacrifices for the time when the Temple is built. What is extremely exciting is they have at least 4 (as of this moment of writing) candidates of RED HEIFERS!!!!
There is a project the Temple Institute has been working on, breeding a red heifer. The ashes of a red heifer are needed for the reinstatement of biblical purity, and rebuilding of the Third Temple. There are many requirements that this cow must meet; it must be 3 years old and perfect in redness. They will thoroughly inspect the cow to make sure that ALL the hairs are a red color, if there is even 2 hairs of a different color, it would be disqualified. It’s hooves, nose and flesh around the eyes, must be red and be free of any physical blemish or defect. It is not allowed to perform any labor. It must also be sacrificed in a certain place, the Mount of Olives, opposite the Eastern gate of the Temple Mount. The ashes from this animal will be used for the purification process, to purify and sanctify the vessels, instruments and the Cohen. The 3rdTemple cannot be built without it!
The Temple Institute announced in June that it has 2 heifers that fit all the qualifications. They will continue to check the heifers every couple of months to see if they still qualify. These ladies are only 2 years old, but next year they will be of the proper age to be sacrificed. The Temple Institute has every intention of sacrificing one of them if they still qualify at Rosh Hoshanna 2021. What is also interesting is that is a Shemitah year!
According to Jewish Tradition, oral & written history, this would be the 10th red heifer to be sacrificed. This is significant because they believe that the 10th red heifer will be sacrificed by the Messiah. Obviously as a Christian I believe that the Messiah has already come. Jesus/Yeshua is the Messiah that the Jews are waiting for. He met all the prophecies about the coming Messiah. He was the blood sacrifice on the Execution Stake/Cross that atoned for all our sins. So if they truly believe that this man that sacrifices the red heifer is their Messiah, then that would mean that this person would actually be the Anti-Messiah!

There have been many presidents and politicians that have tried to negotiate this peace treaty, but all have failed. Right now Jared Kushner is working on it and he has made great progress this last week according to the White House announcement. Could he be the Anti- Messiah? Only time will tell.
The Anti-Messiah’s peace plan will begin the countdown of the 7 years of the Tribulation and the return of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah). The Prophet Daniel and Yeshua (Jesus) told us about this peace plan and the last days, so we can recognize the times and warn others also.
“In the Book of Daniel, (chap 9) we read that Daniel, who was in exile in Babylon with the Jewish People, was studying the Book of Jeremiah looking for answers. As he read, he understood that Jeremiah foretold a 70-year period of Babylonian captivity before the restoration of Israel would come to pass (Jeremiah 29:10). Daniel’s heartfelt, moving response was to pray, confessing his sin and the sin of the entire nation of Israel.
As he prayed, the angel Gabriel came to him, telling him of an additional time period, this time of shevuim shevim(seventy sevens) or 490 years. This was the time that would elapse before sin would end and everlasting righteousness would be established: “Seventy [shevim] ‘sevens’ [shevuim] are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place.” (Daniel 9:24)
End-Time Prophecy: What Are the “Seventy Sevens”?
Shevuim(sevens) is similar to the concept of a decade (10 years), but refers to a seven-year period. Seventy sevens (70 X 7), therefore, represents a period of 490 years before the prophecy would be fulfilled.
Of these 490 years, 483 have been fulfilled with remarkable precision; they represent the time between the decree by the Persian king Artaxerxes to rebuild Jerusalem (Nehemiah 2:1–8)and the cutting off of Yeshua HaMashiach:
From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven [sheva] ‘sevens’ [Shevuim] and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One [Mashiach/ Messiah] will be put to death and will have nothing. (Daniel 9:25–26)
From Artaxerxes’ decree (Ezra 7:13–28)to Yeshua’s death on the Roman execution stake was 483 years. Many believe this leaves a seven-year span that has yet to be completed and will be fulfilled in the last days during the Tribulation Period.
Daniel describes that time in Daniel 9:27:
“He [the ruler at that time] will confirm a covenant [peace treaty] with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation.”
When Yeshua was asked about His coming and the end of the age (Matthew 24:3–15), He referred to Daniel 9:27. According to Yeshua’s end-time explanation, confirms that there will be a third Jewish Temple in the last days and a seven-year peace covenant, which likely will be brought about by the anti-Messiah.
Just as the Hebrew Prophet Daniel searched the Scriptures for clues to understand the time in which he lived, we also should be diligently searching the Scriptures. Indeed, when we examine current events in the light of Bible prophecy, there can be no doubt that we are living at the end of the age.
The necessity remains to scrutinize world happenings so we may be prepared for whatever is coming, especially since recent attempts at peace in the Middle East may be a precursor for the fulfillment of Daniel’s final seven-year period.
This peace covenant will begin the 70th week in Daniel’s prophecy, the final seven-year stretch before the return of Yeshua.
Daniel also highlights the halfway point in the seven-year covenant, this leader will set up an abomination in the Temple. (The Book of Revelation also mentions a three and a half year period in Revelation 11:2–3; 12:6; and 13:5).” The Messianic Prophecy Bible Project
The year of 2020 isn’t over and we have already had plague (covid 19), Pestilence (historical locust swarms all over the world), riots (spirit of Chaos), famine, earthquakes, flooding, etc. (Matthew 24) The year isn’t even over. Who knows what this fall will bring! There are a couple prophets that I highly recommend: Mena Lee Grebin & Dana Coverstone have prophesied about this year and what is to come. Check them out!
We are getting close to the Tribulation starting… So prepare!
REPENT and get right with Yeshua/Jesus. Get spiritually prepared. Then let God lead you on how to prepare physically. He may have you flee to a safe place, He may have you stockpile food and hunker down. Let Him guide you and lead you in all ways.
Shalom be upon you all, Amanda.
