‘Massive Altar’ for Red Heifer Sacrifice Constructed In Israel


Since the time of Moses, only nine red heifers have been sacrificed.

Now, a “massive altar” for the 10th red heifer sacrifice has been built in Israel, and there is a tremendous amount of speculation that it could happen soon.

In September 2022, five red heifers were flown from the state of Texas to the land of Israel. Since that time, one of them has been disqualified, but the other four continue to be candidates for a red heifer sacrifice.

As I discussed last week, there was “a practice run of the purification ceremony” in 2023. But an official ceremony must be conducted before the heifers get too old to be used for such a sacrifice.

So will a red heifer be sacrificed in Israel in 2024?

According to CBS News, a “massive altar” has already been constructed.

I was absolutely floored when I first saw that.

A red heifer sacrifice would need to happen on the Mount of Olives, and the land where the sacrifice would take place is owned by Rabbi Yitshak Mamo.

According to those working on the project, the ceremony of the red heifer needs to be performed on the Mount of Olives, and in a place that would have looked directly into where the Temple stood. The land directly east of the Temple Mount, purchased 12 years ago, meets both of those standards.

Rabbi Yitshak Mamo owns that land on the Mount of Olives. Mamo is with Uvne Yerusalim, a group that preserves Israel’s history and works to educate future generations.

Concerning the specifics of the land, he told CBN News, “It had to be exactly at the front of the place that the priest that made this ceremony can see the Holy of the Holy Place.”

But the clock is ticking.

If the heifers get too old, they will no longer qualify.

During a recent public appearance, Mamo explained that “we are very close to the third year of these cows.”

“If there is any [mathematicians] here, so you can understand that we are very close to the third year of these cows,” reveals Mamo. “Which means that with the help of God, we will get permission from God and from the people to make the ceremony. And then we can be pure.”

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz that we could actually see a red heifer sacrifice very soon.

Last month, All Israel News reported that the Temple Institute wants to conduct a sacrifice “before Passover 2024.”

As of now, four of the heifers remain blemish-free and, according to Temple Institute rabbis, they hope to carry out the ceremony before Passover 2024.

This year, the Jewish people will celebrate Passover on April 22nd.

That is about a month away.

During a recent broadcast, Glenn Beck also discussed the possibility that a red heifer sacrifice could happen in the very near future. The following is an excerpt from a transcript of that broadcast:

If you’re going to rebuild the temple, you need to purify it.

And purifying it, according to the book of numbers, chapter 19, is a heifer. A red heifer ceremony. That results in the creation of ash and water mixture.

And that cleanses the entire nation of Israel. From ritual impurity.

And then the ceremony requires some of the blood to be sprinkled at the front of the tabernacle. That later became the temple.

It usually took place at the Mount of Olives, where they are planning on doing this again in the coming days.

It is essential for all aspects of the temple, and temple worship to take place.

In addition, anyone participating in temple worship, would be required to be sprinkled with the ash water.

Beyond that, even without the presence of a physical temple, the ceremony, would be—would allow the general population to be ritually cleansed and remove much of the religious prohibition for a Jewish presence, on the Temple Mount.

When are they planning on doing it?

Well, they imported these red heifers before October 7th.

We now know that Hamas said, that this was going to—this was part of the reason, because they’re going to use the red heifers to purify the temple, which is desecration to them.

Purifying them, so they can then, actually, go up, and even if there’s no temple. They can pray as if they were in the temple.

They’re going to do this, Passover weekend. So Easter weekend.

There has been a lot of speculation on social media that a red heifer sacrifice could potentially take place on Mar. 29, because the “Sabbath of the red heifer” begins at sundown that evening.

Shabbat Parah for Hebrew Year 5784 begins at sundown on Friday, 29 March 2024 and ends at nightfall on Saturday, 30 March 2024. This corresponds to Parashat Tzav.

Shabbat Parah (Sabbath [of the] red heifer שבת פרה) takes place on the Shabbat before Shabbat HaChodesh, in preparation for Passover. Numbers 19:1-22 describes the parah adumah (red heifer) in the Jewish temple as part of the manner in which the kohanim and the Jewish people purified themselves so that they would be ready (“pure”) to sacrifice the korban Pesach.

I have not been able to find any confirmation that a sacrifice will happen on Mar. 29.

So I don’t know if we will see anything happen on that date or not.

But I do believe that the Temple Institute fully intends to conduct a red heifer sacrifice at some point in 2024.

And when that happens, Israel’s enemies are going to go haywire.

As CBS News has reported, Hamas has actually admitted that the red heifers were one of the reasons why they attacked Israel on Oct. 7.

When Hamas spokesman Abu Ubaida began a speech marking the 100th day of the war in Gaza, one confounding yet eye-opening proclamation escaped the headlines. Listing the motives for the Palestinian militant group’s Oct. 7 massacre in Israel, he accused Jews of “bringing red cows” to the Holy Land.

The cows he was talking about are red heifers, which now graze at a secure, undisclosed location in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Some Jews and Christians believe they’re key to rebuilding the Jewish temple that once stood in Jerusalem, and to beckoning the Messiah.

Once Israel’s enemies realize that a red heifer has been sacrificed, they are going to go absolutely nuts.

So this is a really big deal.

Let’s keep watching and praying, because it appears that events in the Middle East are about to get very, very interesting.{eoa}
