A Massive Altar for the Red Heifer Sacrifice Has Been Constructed in Israel

End of the American Dream

Note from Pastor Kevin Lea:  The prophetic Scriptures are clear that the Jews will have a Third Temple, in Jerusalem, and will be performing animal sacrifices during the first half of the seven-year tribulation period (Daniel 9:27, 12:11, Matthew 24:15, 2 Thessalonians 2:4, Revelation 11:1-4 with Zechariah 4).  According to the Mosaic Law, the Jews are not allowed to perform temple sacrifice unless they are ceremonially clean or consecrated (2 Chronicles 29-30).  They cannot become clean unless they are sprinkled with the ashes of a kosher Red Heifer
(Numbers 19).  The Jews have waited 2,000 years for this tenth Red Heifer, and it appears that one of the cows is nearly ready to be sacrificed, which means the time for building the Third Temple is approaching.  Since the conditions for building the temple are not going to be established until after the church dispensation is over, which is when Jesus takes believers to Heaven in the Rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, John 14:1-4), then the fact that one or more of these cows are now ready for sacrifice should cause those who have put their trust in Jesus as their Savior to obey Jesus’ words: "Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near" (Luke 21:28 NKJV)

Since the time of Moses, only nine red heifers have been sacrificed.  There is a tremendous amount of speculation that another sacrifice 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.  There was “a practice run of the purification ceremony” in 2023 and the CBS Video below mentions a large altar that has been prepared for the sacrifice.  **Editors Note:  The large altar shown in the CBS video was from a training simulation many years ago and it is not currently known what type of altar would be used for such a sacrifice. **
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?
