Bible Prophecy: First ‘Red Heifer Born in 2,000 Years’

On the 17th day of Elul, 5778, August 28, 2018, a red heifer ‘without a blemish' was born in the land of Israel. This event is being hailed by many as the fulfilment of Biblical prophecy. The sacrifice of a perfect red heifer is essential to the construction of the Third Temple and would bring the coming of the Messiah and the final judgement.

The Temple Institute is an organization in Israel focusing on the establishment of the Third Temple. According to the Bible, the Third Temple will exist during the Great Tribulation. The First Temple was built by Solomon and which was destroyed in 586 BC. The Second Temple was built after the Jews returned from Babylonian captivity (516 BC to 70 AD).

The Temple Institute announced the birth of an entirely red female calf that “brings the promise of reinstating Biblical purity to the world”. Red heifers feature in end times tales in both Christianity and Judaism.

The cow’s birth and sacrifice is said to proceed the construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem. And the Third Temple’s construction – following the destruction of the previous two – heralds the arrival of the Jewish Messiah.

While some Evangelical Christian theologians have linked the building of the Third Temple to Judgement Day. Rabbi Chain Richman, director of the Temple Institute, hailed the red heifer’s birth as suggestions the time could be right for the Third Temple.

The cow went under “extensive examination by rabbinical experts” who confirmed she is a “viable candidate for the Biblical red heifer”. They admitted however the cow could be disqualified through natural causes.

Temple Institute bosses founded their Raise a Red Heifer in Israel program three years ago and have trying to breed a perfectly red cow. Frozen embryos of red angus cows have been imported and implanted into traditional Israeli domestic cows, reports Breaking Israel News.

The newborn red heifer was verified by a board of rabbis from the Temple Institute as fulfilling the prophesied requirements. Prophecy in the Hebrew Bible states the cow must be red “without blemish”, must not have worked. It is claimed there have only been nine true red heifers – and the 10th will herald the construction of the Third Temple.

The Temple Institute believes a red heifer will be needed to be scarified to complete the ritual of purification for the temple – heralding the coming of the Jewish Messiah.

Red heifers have previously been found by the organisation – who have then disqualified them for not meeting prophetic standards.

Writing on the Temple Institute’s website, Rabbi Caimen said: “Does this perhaps mean that the appearance of a red heifer in these waning end times is an indication, a forerunner of the appearance of the Messiah himself, who will officiate at its preparation?

“If there has been no red heifer for the past 2,000 years, perhaps it is because the time was not right; Israel was far from being ready. But now, what could it mean for the times we live in, to have the means for purification so close at hand?”

He added: “We cannot help but wonder and pray: If there are now red heifers… is ours the era that will need them?”

Has Biblical prophecy been realised now that the first ‘red heifer in 2,000 years' has been born in Israel? Although the calf was born without a blemish, it is still being monitored to see if any blemishes appear. Architectural plans for the Third Holy Temple have begun.
