  • in order to practice the ritual of the red heifer
  • 00:00:06.220 --> 00:00:09.170
  • as described in Numbers chapter 19.
  • 00:00:09.170 --> 00:00:12.260
  • They wanted to see if enough ashes
  • 00:00:12.260 --> 00:00:15.100
  • would be produced to cleanse all the Jews in Israel
  • 00:00:15.100 --> 00:00:19.210
  • from contact with a dead body.
  • 00:00:19.210 --> 00:00:22.050
  • The Jews must be purified by the ashes of a red heifer
  • 00:00:22.050 --> 00:00:26.060
  • before they can build their new temple
  • 00:00:26.060 --> 00:00:28.230
  • and resume temple worship like they used to practice
  • 00:00:28.230 --> 00:00:33.070
  • before they were driven into
  • 00:00:33.070 --> 00:00:34.200
  • 2000 years' exile by the Romans in 70 AD.
  • 00:00:34.200 --> 00:00:39.190
  • (dramatic orchestral music)
  • 00:00:39.190 --> 00:00:43.090
  • We're talking today about the ordinance of the red heifer.
  • 00:01:12.190 --> 00:01:17.190
  • The scripture is Numbers 19:2.
  • 00:01:18.150 --> 00:01:21.230
  • This is the ordinance of the law
  • 00:01:21.230 --> 00:01:24.160
  • which the Lord hath commanded, saying,
  • 00:01:24.160 --> 00:01:27.130
  • "Speak unto the children of Israel,
  • 00:01:27.130 --> 00:01:29.240
  • "that they bring thee a red heifer without spot,
  • 00:01:29.240 --> 00:01:33.110
  • "wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke."
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:38.110
  • Numbers chapter 19 in the Bible teaches the Jewish people
  • 00:01:39.220 --> 00:01:44.040
  • that if any person has had contact with a dead body,
  • 00:01:44.040 --> 00:01:48.170
  • he or she is ritually impure,
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:52.000
  • and may not go into the sanctuary of the Lord
  • 00:01:52.000 --> 00:01:55.100
  • until being purified.
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:57.200
  • This means if a person has walked through a cemetery,
  • 00:01:57.200 --> 00:02:01.090
  • visited a funeral home,
  • 00:02:01.090 --> 00:02:03.020
  • been in a hospital where someone has died,
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:05.240
  • or been in the presence
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:07.050
  • of human death in any form, he is impure.
  • 00:02:07.050 --> 00:02:11.090
  • If a person violates this commandment
  • 00:02:11.090 --> 00:02:14.010
  • by entering in the sanctuary while impure,
  • 00:02:14.010 --> 00:02:17.180
  • he is to be cut off from Israel.
  • 00:02:17.180 --> 00:02:20.180
  • In other words, the person
  • 00:02:20.180 --> 00:02:22.190
  • is to be excommunicated from God's people.
  • 00:02:22.190 --> 00:02:25.240
  • The commandment in Numbers 19 describes
  • 00:02:27.020 --> 00:02:29.260
  • the only means of people under the law
  • 00:02:29.260 --> 00:02:32.280
  • being purified from contact with a dead body.
  • 00:02:32.280 --> 00:02:36.120
  • A red heifer without blemish,
  • 00:02:36.120 --> 00:02:38.220
  • and on which a yoke has never been placed must be killed,
  • 00:02:38.220 --> 00:02:43.190
  • its body burned, and the ashes mingled in water.
  • 00:02:43.190 --> 00:02:48.060
  • The one to be purified must then
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:50.220
  • be sprinkled with the mixture
  • 00:02:50.220 --> 00:02:53.070
  • in order to be cleansed from the curse of death.
  • 00:02:53.070 --> 00:02:57.160
  • Only after the prescribed treatment
  • 00:02:57.160 --> 00:03:00.160
  • can a person then go into the sanctuary of the Lord.
  • 00:03:00.160 --> 00:03:04.230
  • The Jewish people today assume
  • 00:03:04.230 --> 00:03:07.100
  • that all of them have had contact with death,
  • 00:03:07.100 --> 00:03:10.240
  • and therefore the entire nation is impure.
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:15.120
  • Consequently, it has become the highest priority
  • 00:03:15.120 --> 00:03:19.010
  • of religiously observant Jews to find a qualified red heifer
  • 00:03:19.010 --> 00:03:24.010
  • to cleanse the people from death.
  • 00:03:25.050 --> 00:03:27.240
  • Until this is accomplished, they don't believe
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:31.100
  • they can build their longed-for Third Temple.
  • 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:35.180
  • The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has been leading the drive
  • 00:03:35.180 --> 00:03:40.030
  • toward building Israel's Third Temple.
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:42.250
  • The institute has created all the furniture and the utensils
  • 00:03:42.250 --> 00:03:47.160
  • necessary for the resumption of temple worship.
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:51.070
  • The only two things stopping the construction
  • 00:03:51.070 --> 00:03:54.210
  • of the temple on the Temple Mount
  • 00:03:54.210 --> 00:03:57.150
  • are the dispute between Muslims and Jews
  • 00:03:57.150 --> 00:04:00.080
  • about control over the Temple Mount
  • 00:04:00.080 --> 00:04:03.000
  • and the absence of the required red heifer.
  • 00:04:03.000 --> 00:04:07.100
  • The Jews believe when they acquire the red heifer,
  • 00:04:07.100 --> 00:04:10.290
  • God will resolve the political dispute.
  • 00:04:10.290 --> 00:04:15.040
  • According to Jewish tradition,
  • 00:04:15.040 --> 00:04:17.190
  • there have been nine red heifers offered
  • 00:04:17.190 --> 00:04:21.020
  • for purification from death
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:23.050
  • since the commandment was originally given to Moses.
  • 00:04:23.050 --> 00:04:27.040
  • It is believed the last red heifer was offered
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:30.280
  • during the Second Temple,
  • 00:04:30.280 --> 00:04:33.190
  • which ended with the Roman destruction
  • 00:04:33.190 --> 00:04:36.180
  • of the temple in 70 AD.
  • 00:04:36.180 --> 00:04:39.180
  • Since Israel took possession of the Temple Mount
  • 00:04:39.180 --> 00:04:42.290
  • during the 1967 Six-Day War,
  • 00:04:42.290 --> 00:04:45.220
  • Jews, wanting to build their Third Temple,
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:48.180
  • began to search for a qualified red heifer.
  • 00:04:48.180 --> 00:04:52.220
  • In 1996, a red heifer named Melody
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:57.020
  • was unexpectedly born on a farm in northern Israel.
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:05:01.110
  • Hopes ran high that this could be the red heifer
  • 00:05:01.110 --> 00:05:06.090
  • that would restore the Jewish people
  • 00:05:06.090 --> 00:05:08.120
  • back to a state of purity.
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:10.250
  • However, Melody developed some white hairs in her tail
  • 00:05:10.250 --> 00:05:15.250
  • and was disqualified by the rabbis.
  • 00:05:15.250 --> 00:05:19.220
  • Then in June 1997, the Jerusalem Post reported
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:24.220
  • that Clyde Lott, a cattle raiser from Mississipi,
  • 00:05:24.220 --> 00:05:28.190
  • and Rabbi Chaim Richman,
  • 00:05:28.190 --> 00:05:30.150
  • the executive director of the Temple Institute,
  • 00:05:30.150 --> 00:05:33.140
  • were working to bring red cattle from Mississippi to Israel.
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:38.140
  • Somehow, this effort never came to fruition.
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:43.090
  • Israel National News, on July 15th, 2015,
  • 00:05:43.090 --> 00:05:48.010
  • reported the Temple Institute is partnering
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:51.240
  • with an expert Israeli rancher
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:54.180
  • to raise a herd of red heifers
  • 00:05:54.180 --> 00:05:57.070
  • for future use in the Third Temple.
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:06:00.240
  • They quoted the Temple Institute as saying,
  • 00:06:00.240 --> 00:06:03.260
  • "Make no mistake, this project is no less
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:08.260
  • "than the first stage of the reintroduction
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:12.020
  • "of Biblical purity into the world,
  • 00:06:12.020 --> 00:06:15.240
  • "a prerequisite for the building of the Third Temple."
  • 00:06:15.240 --> 00:06:20.180

  • - Once the qualified red heifer
  • 00:08:22.030 --> 00:08:24.080
  • is actually found and offered,
  • 00:08:24.080 --> 00:08:27.190
  • those purified will then be qualified
  • 00:08:27.190 --> 00:08:30.250
  • to launch the building of Israel's Third Temple,
  • 00:08:30.250 --> 00:08:34.220
  • the first Jewish temple in 2000 years.
  • 00:08:34.220 --> 00:08:39.220
  • The first calf born to this project in 2018 was a male calf,
  • 00:08:41.040 --> 00:08:45.130
  • and therefore could not be the desired heifer.
  • 00:08:46.180 --> 00:08:49.230
  • The second calf was female,
  • 00:08:49.230 --> 00:08:52.070
  • but possessed blemishes that disqualified her.
  • 00:08:52.070 --> 00:08:56.180
  • On August the 28th, 2018,
  • 00:08:57.140 --> 00:09:00.280
  • one of the cows gave birth to a female calf.
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:05.020
  • One week after its birth, the newborn red heifer
  • 00:09:05.020 --> 00:09:09.180
  • was certified by a board of rabbis
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:13.140
  • as fulfilling all the Biblical requirements.
  • 00:09:13.140 --> 00:09:18.060
  • The rabbis emphasized that the heifer
  • 00:09:18.060 --> 00:09:21.120
  • could at any time acquire a blemish,
  • 00:09:21.120 --> 00:09:24.060
  • rendering it unsuitable.
  • 00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:26.030
  • They will be inspecting the calf periodically
  • 00:09:27.080 --> 00:09:30.040
  • to verify its condition.
  • 00:09:30.040 --> 00:09:33.010
  • Could this calf be the one that will open the door
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:38.010
  • to the building of Israel's Third Temple?
  • 00:09:39.050 --> 00:09:41.070
  • We need to ask, will Israel get its Third Temple?
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:48.230
  • Two different prophecies foretell that a temple
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:51.180
  • will stand on the Temple Mount in the end time.
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:55.280
  • Second Thessalonians chapter two, verse three and four
  • 00:09:55.280 --> 00:09:59.050
  • prophesies that the Antichrist will sit
  • 00:09:59.050 --> 00:10:02.120
  • in the temple of God, claiming to be God.
  • 00:10:02.120 --> 00:10:06.000
  • Of course, you can't sit in a temple if there is no temple.
  • 00:10:06.000 --> 00:10:10.180
  • In Revelation 11, verse one and two,
  • 00:10:10.180 --> 00:10:12.270
  • the apostle John was told to measure
  • 00:10:12.270 --> 00:10:15.270
  • the temple and those that worship therein.
  • 00:10:15.270 --> 00:10:18.250
  • This prophecy is to occur 42 months
  • 00:10:18.250 --> 00:10:23.040
  • before the battle of Armageddon
  • 00:10:23.040 --> 00:10:24.190
  • and the second coming of Jesus to the earth.
  • 00:10:24.190 --> 00:10:27.130
  • You can't measure a temple if there's no temple to measure.
  • 00:10:27.130 --> 00:10:32.130
  • It's obvious from these two prophecies
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:35.240
  • Israel will get its red heifer,
  • 00:10:35.240 --> 00:10:38.250
  • since the temple cannot be constructed without one.
  • 00:10:38.250 --> 00:10:43.150
  • Now, let's give you the latest developments.
  • 00:10:43.150 --> 00:10:47.150
  • A trial run, a major step has recently been made
  • 00:10:47.150 --> 00:10:51.290
  • towards obtaining the ashes of a red heifer.
  • 00:10:51.290 --> 00:10:55.150
  • After an intensive study into the practical details,
  • 00:10:55.150 --> 00:10:59.140
  • an actual heifer, not yet the red one,
  • 00:10:59.140 --> 00:11:02.220
  • was burned in precisely the manner
  • 00:11:02.220 --> 00:11:05.110
  • that was commanded in Numbers 19.
  • 00:11:05.110 --> 00:11:08.100
  • The experiment was designed to check
  • 00:11:08.100 --> 00:11:11.040
  • the amount of ash produced, and whether it would be enough
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:15.220
  • to purify every Israeli living today.
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:19.070
  • This action was also designed to practice conducting
  • 00:11:19.070 --> 00:11:23.190
  • the red heifer procedure according to Biblical instructions.
  • 00:11:23.190 --> 00:11:28.190
  • The trial burning was conducted by Professor Zohar Amar,
  • 00:11:29.290 --> 00:11:33.220
  • a professor in the Department
  • 00:11:33.220 --> 00:11:35.140
  • of Land of Israel Studies at Bar-Ilan University.
  • 00:11:35.140 --> 00:11:40.010
  • A cow weighting 595 pounds was used for the experiment,
  • 00:11:40.010 --> 00:11:45.010
  • and was ritually slaughtered adjacent to the prepared pyre.
  • 00:11:46.140 --> 00:11:50.160
  • The blood required for the ritual
  • 00:11:51.200 --> 00:11:53.240
  • was collected in the hand of a Kohen.
  • 00:11:53.240 --> 00:11:57.210
  • The cow was lifted onto the pyre by 12 men,
  • 00:11:57.210 --> 00:12:01.220
  • using a jury-rigged litter.
  • 00:12:01.220 --> 00:12:04.180
  • The experiment was carried out
  • 00:12:05.230 --> 00:12:07.240
  • according to the strictest details of the ritual,
  • 00:12:07.240 --> 00:12:11.210
  • with the head of the cow towards the south
  • 00:12:11.210 --> 00:12:14.150
  • and her legs facing west.
  • 00:12:14.150 --> 00:12:17.130
  • When the experiment began, the fire spread quickly,
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:21.130
  • and within one hour the belly of the cow collapsed.
  • 00:12:21.130 --> 00:12:25.130
  • At this point, cedar wood, hyssop,
  • 00:12:25.130 --> 00:12:29.050
  • and scarlet-dyed wool were added to the pyre,
  • 00:12:29.050 --> 00:12:33.030
  • according to the Biblical instructions.
  • 00:12:33.030 --> 00:12:36.130
  • After two hours, the fire reached
  • 00:12:36.130 --> 00:12:39.020
  • a temperature of 940 degrees.
  • 00:12:39.020 --> 00:12:43.100
  • The fire burned for nine hours,
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:45.220
  • but several days passed before the ashes had cooled
  • 00:12:45.220 --> 00:12:49.270
  • sufficiently to allow them to be collected.
  • 00:12:49.270 --> 00:12:53.100
  • In addition to the heifer,
  • 00:12:54.100 --> 00:12:56.140
  • 1.4 tons of wood were used in the experiment.
  • 00:12:56.140 --> 00:13:00.250
  • This produced a total of 145 pounds of ash,
  • 00:13:00.250 --> 00:13:05.210
  • or about 4% of the original matter.
  • 00:13:05.210 --> 00:13:09.130
  • Professor Amar estimated
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:12.010
  • that the ashes from the actual animal
  • 00:13:12.010 --> 00:13:14.200
  • represented 24 pounds of the total ash.
  • 00:13:14.200 --> 00:13:19.010
  • According to Professor Amar,
  • 00:13:19.010 --> 00:13:21.150
  • ritual purification requires only one drop of the ash water
  • 00:13:21.150 --> 00:13:26.150
  • to sprinkled on each person or object.
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:31.040
  • On this basis, Professor Amar determined
  • 00:13:31.040 --> 00:13:35.090
  • that 145.5 pounds of ash would be sufficient
  • 00:13:35.090 --> 00:13:40.090
  • for at least 660 billion sprinklings.
  • 00:13:41.130 --> 00:13:45.200
  • He also noted that it is permitted to add wood.
  • 00:13:46.250 --> 00:13:50.120
  • Each addition of one ton of wood would permit
  • 00:13:50.120 --> 00:13:55.090
  • an additional 250 billion sprinklings.
  • 00:13:55.090 --> 00:13:59.140
  • Even if we assume that a portion of the water
  • 00:13:59.140 --> 00:14:03.060
  • will be wasted or not fully utilized,
  • 00:14:03.060 --> 00:14:05.270
  • or if a portion of the ash is lost,
  • 00:14:05.270 --> 00:14:08.250
  • in any case the ashes from one red heifer will be sufficient
  • 00:14:08.250 --> 00:14:13.230
  • for purifying a huge number of people.
  • 00:14:14.280 --> 00:14:18.220
  • Professor Amar concluded, "This clarifies how the ashes
  • 00:14:18.220 --> 00:14:23.220
  • "from one cow were sufficient
  • 00:14:24.180 --> 00:14:25.280
  • "to purify several generations of Israel,
  • 00:14:25.280 --> 00:14:29.090
  • "even after the Temple itself was desecrated in 70 AD."
  • 00:14:29.090 --> 00:14:34.070
  • How close are we to a qualified red heifer?
  • 00:14:37.080 --> 00:14:41.140
  • A red heifer was born on August the 28th, 2018
  • 00:14:41.140 --> 00:14:46.140
  • that the rabbis said was kosher.
  • 00:14:47.100 --> 00:14:49.160
  • According to Professor Amar,
  • 00:14:49.160 --> 00:14:52.100
  • a red heifer must be two years and one day old
  • 00:14:52.100 --> 00:14:56.240
  • in order to qualify for use.
  • 00:14:56.240 --> 00:14:59.170
  • Considering this, the red heifer born
  • 00:14:59.170 --> 00:15:02.090
  • on August the 28th of 2018
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:05.090
  • would be old enough on August the 29th, 2020.
  • 00:15:05.090 --> 00:15:09.050
  • However, this red heifer must not develop
  • 00:15:11.140 --> 00:15:14.120
  • disqualifying features between now and then
  • 00:15:14.120 --> 00:15:17.220
  • if it is to be used.
  • 00:15:17.220 --> 00:15:19.160
  • So how does this tie into Trump's peace plan?
  • 00:15:21.120 --> 00:15:25.290
  • President Trump has been working on a peace plan
  • 00:15:27.050 --> 00:15:30.160
  • for the Middle East for two and one half years.
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:34.010
  • One of the issues that any Palestinian-Israeli plan
  • 00:15:34.010 --> 00:15:38.080
  • will have to deal with will be
  • 00:15:38.080 --> 00:15:40.100
  • the status of the Temple Mount.
  • 00:15:40.100 --> 00:15:43.040
  • This is where Israel's First and Second Temples stood.
  • 00:15:43.040 --> 00:15:47.180
  • The Jewish people are determined
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:49.130
  • to build their Third Temple there.
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:52.160
  • President Trump has announced
  • 00:15:52.160 --> 00:15:54.280
  • that he will reveal his peace plan
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:57.100
  • after Israel's elections on September the 19th of 2019.
  • 00:15:57.100 --> 00:16:01.260
  • The chances are quite strong that Trump's plan
  • 00:16:03.030 --> 00:16:07.030
  • could be signed sometime in 2020.
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:11.200
  • If all goes according to plan,
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:14.130
  • the red heifer born on August the 28th of 2018
  • 00:16:14.130 --> 00:16:19.000
  • would be ready for use by August the 29th, 2020.
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:23.270
  • Is it a mere coincidence these two events
  • 00:16:23.270 --> 00:16:27.290
  • are converging at the same time,
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:31.090
  • or could be the orchestration of divine providence?
  • 00:16:31.090 --> 00:16:36.090
  • We'll have to wait and see for the answer to that question.
  • 00:16:37.220 --> 00:16:40.110
  • Now, another question that automatically comes up.
  • 00:16:42.230 --> 00:16:45.130
  • Do Christians need a red heifer?
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:49.050
  • Some may wonder if Christians
  • 00:16:49.050 --> 00:16:51.010
  • are still under the law of the red heifer.
  • 00:16:51.010 --> 00:16:53.220
  • Scripture clearly teaches us
  • 00:16:53.220 --> 00:16:56.070
  • the Old Testament law was merely a type and shadow
  • 00:16:56.070 --> 00:17:00.180
  • of New Testament realities.
  • 00:17:00.180 --> 00:17:02.160
  • The book of Hebrews says it this way.
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:05.120
  • For the law having a shadow of good things to come,
  • 00:17:06.240 --> 00:17:09.210
  • and not the very image of the things,
  • 00:17:09.210 --> 00:17:13.150
  • can never with those sacrifices
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:16.000
  • which they offered year by year
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:18.100
  • continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
  • 00:17:18.100 --> 00:17:22.120
  • That's Hebrews 10:1.
  • 00:17:23.090 --> 00:17:25.210
  • The book of Colossians also teaches
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:28.020
  • many of the commandments of the Old Testament
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:30.190
  • are simply symbols of New Testament realities.
  • 00:17:30.190 --> 00:17:35.070
  • Here's what it says.
  • 00:17:35.070 --> 00:17:36.220
  • Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink
  • 00:17:36.220 --> 00:17:41.010
  • or in respect of an holy day
  • 00:17:41.010 --> 00:17:43.100
  • or of the new moon or of the sabbath days,
  • 00:17:43.100 --> 00:17:46.200
  • which are a shadow of things to come.
  • 00:17:46.200 --> 00:17:51.090
  • But the body is of Christ.
  • 00:17:51.090 --> 00:17:53.170
  • The Bible tells us that Jesus plays
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:56.200
  • the role of the red heifer.
  • 00:17:56.200 --> 00:17:59.060
  • Hebrews nine, verse 11 through 14, explains it this way.
  • 00:17:59.060 --> 00:18:04.080
  • But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come,
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:10.100
  • by a greater and more perfect tabernacle,
  • 00:18:11.150 --> 00:18:13.070
  • not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building.
  • 00:18:13.070 --> 00:18:17.260
  • Neither by the blood of goats and calves,
  • 00:18:17.260 --> 00:18:21.240
  • but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place,
  • 00:18:21.240 --> 00:18:26.240
  • having obtained eternal redemption for us.
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:32.050
  • Now listen close.
  • 00:18:32.050 --> 00:18:33.120
  • For if the blood of bulls and of goats
  • 00:18:33.120 --> 00:18:36.260
  • and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean
  • 00:18:36.260 --> 00:18:41.260
  • sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh,
  • 00:18:42.290 --> 00:18:45.140
  • how much more shall the blood of Christ,
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:50.140
  • who through the eternal Spirit
  • 00:18:51.100 --> 00:18:52.160
  • offered himself without spot to God,
  • 00:18:52.160 --> 00:18:55.190
  • purge your conscience from dead works
  • 00:18:55.190 --> 00:19:00.050
  • to serve the living God?
  • 00:19:00.050 --> 00:19:03.110
  • What it's saying here is that
  • 00:19:03.110 --> 00:19:05.220
  • the red heifer of the Old Testament
  • 00:19:05.220 --> 00:19:07.190
  • that purged them from contact with a dead body,
  • 00:19:07.190 --> 00:19:10.160
  • that role has now been played by Jesus Christ,
  • 00:19:10.160 --> 00:19:13.290
  • who through his death tasted death for all of us.
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:18.090
  • Now, Jesus died to deliver us from the curse of death.
  • 00:19:20.030 --> 00:19:23.180
  • Here the scripture says, but we see Jesus,
  • 00:19:24.280 --> 00:19:28.110
  • who was made a little lower than the angels
  • 00:19:28.110 --> 00:19:31.040
  • for the suffering of death,
  • 00:19:31.040 --> 00:19:33.110
  • crowned with glory and with honor,
  • 00:19:33.110 --> 00:19:36.120
  • that he by the grace of God
  • 00:19:36.120 --> 00:19:39.060
  • should taste death for every man.
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:42.270
  • For as much then as the children
  • 00:19:42.270 --> 00:19:45.220
  • are partakers of flesh and blood,
  • 00:19:45.220 --> 00:19:48.140
  • he also himself likewise took part of the same,
  • 00:19:48.140 --> 00:19:52.290
  • that through death he might destroy him
  • 00:19:52.290 --> 00:19:57.060
  • that had the power of death, that is the devil.
  • 00:19:57.060 --> 00:20:00.190
  • That scripture is Hebrews two, verse nine and verse 14.
  • 00:20:00.190 --> 00:20:05.000
  • Now let's look at baptism, and the role that it plays.
  • 00:20:06.160 --> 00:20:11.000
  • Baptism into Christ purifies us from death.
  • 00:20:11.000 --> 00:20:16.000
  • Here's what it says.
  • 00:20:17.010 --> 00:20:18.170
  • Know ye not that so many of us as were baptized
  • 00:20:18.170 --> 00:20:22.000
  • into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
  • 00:20:22.000 --> 00:20:27.000
  • That's Romans 6:3.
  • 00:20:27.220 --> 00:20:29.030
  • Now let's think about this.
  • 00:20:29.030 --> 00:20:30.210
  • We need to be purified from the curse of death,
  • 00:20:31.260 --> 00:20:34.220
  • but that happens at baptism.
  • 00:20:34.220 --> 00:20:36.240
  • As many as have been baptized
  • 00:20:36.240 --> 00:20:38.190
  • into Christ are baptized into his death,
  • 00:20:38.190 --> 00:20:43.150
  • and therefore we pass from
  • 00:20:43.150 --> 00:20:45.130
  • the curse of death unto eternal life.
  • 00:20:45.130 --> 00:20:48.180
  • Now let's talk about death,
  • 00:20:50.060 --> 00:20:52.210
  • and how it's replaced by eternal life.
  • 00:20:52.210 --> 00:20:56.080
  • Finally, the Bible teaches us
  • 00:20:56.080 --> 00:20:58.220
  • that the curse of death that was brought upon us
  • 00:20:58.220 --> 00:21:02.130
  • by the disobedience of the first Adam
  • 00:21:02.130 --> 00:21:05.190
  • has now been replaced by eternal life
  • 00:21:05.190 --> 00:21:08.140
  • through the obedience of the second Adam, Jesus Christ.
  • 00:21:08.140 --> 00:21:13.110
  • Here's the way the Bible says it.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:15.280
  • For if by one man's offense death reigned by one,
  • 00:21:15.280 --> 00:21:20.130
  • much more they which receive abundance of grace
  • 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:25.220
  • and of the gift of righteousness
  • 00:21:25.220 --> 00:21:28.080
  • shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
  • 00:21:28.080 --> 00:21:33.080
  • That's Romans chapter number five and verse number 17.
  • 00:21:34.210 --> 00:21:38.030
  • Okay, let's bring it all together.
  • 00:21:39.100 --> 00:21:43.180
  • Now we see in Israel all of the utensils
  • 00:21:43.180 --> 00:21:48.180
  • and all the furniture for the building
  • 00:21:49.210 --> 00:21:52.050
  • of the Third Temple has now been prepared.
  • 00:21:52.050 --> 00:21:56.050
  • They now have the architectural drawings ready
  • 00:21:56.050 --> 00:22:00.030
  • for the building of the Third Temple.
  • 00:22:00.030 --> 00:22:02.010
  • All they lack is the qualified red heifer.
  • 00:22:03.190 --> 00:22:07.060
  • They have been looking now for several years.
  • 00:22:07.060 --> 00:22:11.080
  • The latest development is that they think
  • 00:22:11.080 --> 00:22:14.220
  • they've found a qualified red heifer.
  • 00:22:14.220 --> 00:22:18.040
  • Today it would be around five months old.
  • 00:22:18.040 --> 00:22:21.100
  • It will be qualified, come August the 29th of 2020.
  • 00:22:21.100 --> 00:22:26.060
  • So they think they have the qualified heifer.
  • 00:22:28.040 --> 00:22:30.110
  • The only problem is right now Jews,
  • 00:22:30.110 --> 00:22:33.190
  • they can go onto the Temple Mount,
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:35.190
  • but they cannot pray there, neither can they worship there.
  • 00:22:35.190 --> 00:22:39.260
  • And furthermore, they won't go up
  • 00:22:39.260 --> 00:22:41.270
  • into the area of the temple because all of them assume
  • 00:22:41.270 --> 00:22:46.270
  • that they have been contaminated
  • 00:22:47.230 --> 00:22:48.280
  • by contact with a dead body.
  • 00:22:48.280 --> 00:22:50.280
  • However, if this red heifer comes along and is qualified,
  • 00:22:52.110 --> 00:22:56.010
  • and they apparently think it must be
  • 00:22:56.010 --> 00:22:58.110
  • because now they're already practicing.
  • 00:22:58.110 --> 00:23:01.150
  • They're practicing to be able
  • 00:23:01.150 --> 00:23:03.190
  • to offer the red heifer properly.
  • 00:23:03.190 --> 00:23:06.190
  • They used a non-red heifer
  • 00:23:06.190 --> 00:23:09.060
  • just within the last few weeks to experiment with.
  • 00:23:09.060 --> 00:23:13.040
  • So they're getting themselves ready.
  • 00:23:13.040 --> 00:23:15.200
  • Now, while all that is taking place,
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:18.120
  • President Trump has set a goal to bring about peace
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:22.180
  • between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
  • 00:23:22.180 --> 00:23:25.190
  • Now, the Bible says this peace is coming,
  • 00:23:25.190 --> 00:23:27.210
  • and when the peace agreement is signed
  • 00:23:27.210 --> 00:23:30.020
  • it will mark the beginning
  • 00:23:30.020 --> 00:23:31.090
  • of the final seven years to Armageddon.
  • 00:23:31.090 --> 00:23:33.250
  • Furthermore, the Bible teaches
  • 00:23:33.250 --> 00:23:36.200
  • that when this final seven-year period begins,
  • 00:23:36.200 --> 00:23:41.030
  • the Jewish temple will be built
  • 00:23:41.030 --> 00:23:43.060
  • during the first three and a half years.
  • 00:23:43.060 --> 00:23:45.030
  • We know this because when the Antichrist is revealed
  • 00:23:45.030 --> 00:23:48.060
  • halfway through the seven-year period,
  • 00:23:48.060 --> 00:23:51.070
  • when that happens a temple will be standing,
  • 00:23:51.070 --> 00:23:54.160
  • because the Bible says the Antichrist
  • 00:23:54.160 --> 00:23:56.120
  • will sit in the Temple of God, claiming to be God.
  • 00:23:56.120 --> 00:23:59.070
  • So let's just assume that this red heifer
  • 00:24:00.180 --> 00:24:04.050
  • they now have is in fact qualified.
  • 00:24:04.050 --> 00:24:07.070
  • And since President Trump has said
  • 00:24:07.070 --> 00:24:09.150
  • he's getting ready to unveil his peace plan
  • 00:24:09.150 --> 00:24:12.150
  • immediately after Israeli elections
  • 00:24:12.150 --> 00:24:14.110
  • on September the 17th of 2019,
  • 00:24:14.110 --> 00:24:18.210
  • that means the plan would be introduced
  • 00:24:18.210 --> 00:24:21.030
  • October or maybe November.
  • 00:24:21.030 --> 00:24:24.100
  • Well, once it's introduced,
  • 00:24:24.100 --> 00:24:25.280
  • then there's gotta be a lot of negotiations.
  • 00:24:25.280 --> 00:24:28.240
  • Now, let's be clear.
  • 00:24:28.240 --> 00:24:30.010
  • We don't know that Trump's plan is the one
  • 00:24:30.010 --> 00:24:33.090
  • that's going to result in a peace agreement,
  • 00:24:33.090 --> 00:24:35.220
  • but right now it's the only plan in town.
  • 00:24:35.220 --> 00:24:38.190
  • So here we have this red heifer
  • 00:24:38.190 --> 00:24:41.080
  • growing towards qualification, August the 29th of 2020.
  • 00:24:41.080 --> 00:24:45.280
  • And now we have Trump's plan being introduced
  • 00:24:48.070 --> 00:24:51.160
  • in October or November 2019.
  • 00:24:51.160 --> 00:24:54.260
  • Then it's gonna have to be negotiated.
  • 00:24:54.260 --> 00:24:58.040
  • So it looks like we're all headed for sometime in 2020,
  • 00:24:58.040 --> 00:25:03.030
  • the possibility of a peace agreement.
  • 00:25:03.030 --> 00:25:07.040
  • And then if the red heifer were offered
  • 00:25:07.040 --> 00:25:10.040
  • after August the 29th, then Israel is purified.
  • 00:25:10.040 --> 00:25:14.100
  • Now, according to the prophecies of the Bible,
  • 00:25:14.100 --> 00:25:17.070
  • the peace agreement is going to put
  • 00:25:17.070 --> 00:25:20.080
  • the Temple Mount under a sharing arrangement
  • 00:25:20.080 --> 00:25:22.150
  • so both Muslim and Jew can worship there.
  • 00:25:22.150 --> 00:25:26.120
  • What am I saying to you?
  • 00:25:26.120 --> 00:25:27.270
  • I am telling you that all of these things are now converging
  • 00:25:27.270 --> 00:25:32.250
  • together at just this time that you and I live in right now.
  • 00:25:32.250 --> 00:25:37.250
  • - [Narrator] Many Christians admit end time Bible prophecy
