A Red Heifer Sacrifice Is Coming, but the Discovery of the Ark of the Covenant Will Be Even More Important


There is a lot of speculation that historic events that people have been anticipating for more than 2,000 years are about to happen in our time.

About a month ago, there was a lot of discussion on the internet about whether or not the sacrifice of the 10th red heifer would take place during the Passover season, and obviously that did not happen. However, I am entirely convinced that a red heifer sacrifice is eventually coming. But if you think that the sacrifice of the 10th red heifer will be big, the truth is that the discovery of the ark of the covenant will be even more important.

I will get to that later in this article, but first I wanted to talk a bit about the upcoming red heifer sacrifice.

According to the Temple Institute, a red heifer cannot be used in such a sacrifice until its third year has begun…

As for the time the red heifer may be used for this commandment –  the Sages state that it is valid when it reaches maturity, i.e. from the beginning of its third year. [13] From this age and onward the red heifer is valid without age limitations. Though, ideally, one should not wait till it passes the age of four, lest it grows hairs of colors that deem it invalid. [14]

The red heifers that were brought over from Texas in 2022 are now old enough to qualify.

And every day that passes, there is a risk that they will grow hairs that are not red and be disqualified.

So the clock is ticking.

Those involved in this project have already spent more than half-a-million dollars, and if all of the heifers they brought over end up being disqualified they will have to go back to square one.

I think that they would like to conduct a red heifer sacrifice during this current year on the Hebrew calendar, and we shall see if they are able to pull that off or not.

But even if a red heifer is sacrificed, that does not mean that a temple will be built right away.

In fact, we have been repeatedly told that sacrifices could potentially begin long before a new temple is constructed.  For example, the following comes directly from the official website of the Temple Institute…

No, the Temple Institute is not building the Temple offsite. We are building a stone altar offsite so that when the opportunity arrives we can move it to its proper location on the Mount. The Divine service, including the offerings can begin before the building of the Temple itself, once the altar is built and standing in its proper place.

I believe that the Temple Institute intends to start conducting sacrifices and offerings very shortly after priests are made ritually clean by the ashes of a red heifer. And that will cause a major stir.

Interestingly, according to Jewish tradition the sacrifice of the 10th red heifer is going to coincide with the Messianic age…

In recounting this historical record in his commentary to the Mishna, the great Maimonides ends with the enigmatic statement: “… and the tenth red heifer will be accomplished by the king, the Messiah; may he be revealed speedily, Amen, May it be G-d’s will.

With this amazing statement, Maimonides recounts an ancient tradition – that the tenth red heifer is associated with the Messianic era. 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? With the words of Maimonides in mind, we cannot help but wonder and pray: If there are now red heifers… is ours the era that will need them?

So I find it quite noteworthy that we could see the 10th red heifer sacrificed very close to the end of the sixth millennium of human history as we await the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

But I believe that an event even bigger than the sacrifice of the 10th red heifer is coming.

When the discovery of the ark of the covenant is finally announced, it will be the biggest archaeological bombshell in all of human history.

On the official website of the Temple Institute, they publicly acknowledge that they know exactly where it is located…

While some claim to have evidence that the ark is in Ethiopia, and of course, moviegoers were treated to a fanciful version of the story in “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” in reality, the expression “lost” ark is not an accurate description for the Jewish people’s point of view – because we have always known exactly where it is. So the Ark is “Hidden,” and hidden quite well, but it is not lost.

Tradition records that even as King Solomon built the First Temple, he already knew, through Divine inspiration, that eventually it would be destroyed. Thus Solomon, the wisest of all men, oversaw the construction of a vast system of labyrinths, mazes, chambers and corridors underneath the Temple Mount complex. He commanded that a special place be built in the bowels of the earth, where the sacred vessels of the Temple could be hidden in case of approaching danger. Midrashic tradition teaches that King Josiah of Israel, who lived about forty years before the destruction of the First Temple, commanded the Levites to hide the Ark, together with the original menorah and several other items*, in this secret hiding place which Solomon had prepared.

This location is recorded in our sources, and today, there are those who know exactly where this chamber is. And we know that the ark is still there, undisturbed, and waiting for the day when it will be revealed. An attempt was made some few years ago to excavate towards the direction of this chamber. This resulted in widespread Moslem unrest and rioting. They stand a great deal to lose if the Ark is revealed – for it will prove to the whole world that there really was a Holy Temple, and thus, that the Jews really do have a claim to the Temple Mount. (The official position of the Islamic Wakf, the body that governs over the Temple Mount, is that there never was a Holy Temple, and that the Jews have no rights whatsoever to the place).

When the Ark is revealed to the whole world, it will completely shock the entire planet.

During a recent show, Glenn Beck speculated about what might happen once everyone gets to see the ark…

Well, it still exists. And this is just my opinion. That’s all it is, just an opinion.

I tend to believe that if it does exist, and it’s going to be revealed.

Then it probably will coincide with the Messianic age, with the Messiah’s return.

And I think that would probably be more likely. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t people who would be very, very excited to be — to have an opportunity. To find it, look for it. And if they could, bring it out.

And that would cause World War III, most likely.

There are a lot of “scholars” out there that believe that Moses never existed.

And there are a lot of “scholars” out there that believe that either the ark of the covenant never existed or that it was just a very simple box or basket.

Once the ark of the covenant is unveiled, it will confirm that Moses and the ark of the covenant really existed just like the Bible says.

And it will also confirm that God really did make a covenant with the people of Israel at Mt. Sinai.

For those that are interested, I get even deeper into all of this in my latest book entitled “Chaos”.

The physical representation of the covenant that God made with the people of Israel at Mt. Sinai has always been the ark of the covenant.

And when it is finally revealed to the world, everything will change.
