The Red Heifer:
« on: Sun Jul 08, 2018 - 16:52:13 »
The particulars of this subject relate to the sacrifice which was an eminent type of our Savior, He being the antitype.

Hebrews 9:14, “How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

Numbers 19:2, “This is the ordinance (statute) of the law which the LORD has commanded, saying, speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer (a type of Christ) without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke.” Compare with,

1 Peter 1:19, “With the precious blood of Christ (the antitype), as a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
 
The virtue of purification from defilement did not reside in the abundance of water the priests washed themselves in, but the purifying lies in the ashes of the heifer that were in the water, however small the quantity may have been. Also after the red heifer was sacrificed, her blood was sprinkled at the door of the tabernacle.

Hebrews 9:10, “washings” Verse 13, “For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of a heifer (in the water) sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies (sets apart) to the purifying of the flesh: how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God (the Father), purge (cleanse) your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”

As for today, no red heifer can be burnt under the present condition of the Jews, because the priests cannot, on their own legal principles, be fully purified from the defilement communicated by the dead, meaning those who had come in contact with the dead. They can wash their clothes, their furnishings, their rooms, etc., but the ashes of a red heifer, one without spot or blemish is needed for the purification of the priests involved.

Not sure if there are any red heifers left?

Issac is the true heir!

Genesis 16:12 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

12 and he is a wild-ass man, his hand against every one, and every one's hand against him -- and before the face of all his brethren he dwelleth.'

It's been at least twenty years ago by now that I first heard that a priesthood in Israel has been involved with breeding animals and trying to come up with a suitable heifer, or herd, to use in a Third Temple.

Before I reply to this I want everyone reading this to understand that I'm pro Israel & I have many Jewish friends etc...

It doesn't appear that the Lord will allow a 3rd temple to be built in Jerusalem by the orthodox Jews or anybody else who would like to help. This doesn't make me anti-Semitic or anti-Israel.   Hebrews chapters 8-10 is clear that the new covenant is far better than the old. Hebrews 10:18 states: And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary.
The rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem was attempted by the Roman emperor Julian in the 4th century. The Roman historian Ammianus Marcellinus recorded this regarding Julian's attempt to rebuild the temple (https://www.fisheaters.com/juliantemple.html):

He [Julian the Apostate] planned at vast cost to restore the once splendid Temple at Jerusalem, which after many mortal combats during the siege by Vespasian and later by Titus had barely been stormed. He had entrusted the speedy performance of this work to Alypius of Antioch... But though this Alypius pushed the work on with vigor, aided by the governor of the province, terrible balls of fire kept bursting forth near the foundations of the Temple and made the place inaccessible to the workmen, some of whom were burned to death; and since in this way the element persistently repelled them, the enterprise halted.

Well, He did knock down the first two temples.  It almost seems as if He doesn't like temples.
