Training Priests for the 3rd Temple

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Temple with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2021 by paulthepoke

Zephaniah 3:9 For then I will give to the peoples purified lips, that all of them may call on the name of the LORD, To serve Him shoulder to shoulder.

Yoni Tzadok has opened a school near Jericho for the purpose of training priests for the third Temple. Tzadok is training the kohanim (priests) and the Leviim (men from the tribe of Levi) for service. The school is named Bet HaMoked.

Below are some quotes from Tzadok.

“My school is open for any person. Not just kohanim and Leviim, and not just for Jews. Muslim or Christian, this is the next stage of the world so everybody should prepare.”

“It is important to know who can enter the Bet HaMikdash (Temple) and who cannot. For example, if a man arrives at the Temple, before he enters, they must ask him how he arrived. If he said that he came by bus, he cannot enter because the bus is, by default, ritually impure. So there have to be guards at the entrance to the Temple to ensure the purity of the sacrifices.” -Yoni Tzadok

For Temple service there will be one pure language, Lashon HaKodesh or the holy tongue. Modern Hebrew is not the same language.

“In the world of the Temple, there will be no English and no other languages. Because of Man’s sins in the generation of the Tower of Babel, all the men were dispersed and their languages confused. The Third Temple will fix us, taking us backward and forward at the same time. The world will return to the days of old, before the sins, when everyone spoke the Lashon HaKodesh.”

Genesis 11:7-9 Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth. And from there the LORD dispersed them over the face of all the earth.

The idea of a singular language is also a hallmark of the Millennial Kingdom.

For then I will give to the peoples purified lips…

Purified”…The Hebrew word is barar. It means: to purge out, purify, to choose, select; to cleanse, make shining, polish. It is a simple action verb in Hebrew.

The Hebrew word for “lips” is saphah. Per Strong’s Concordance it means: lip, language, speech. The term “lip” is synonymous with a language or speech.

In Genesis 11, Babel means confusion. The tower was not completed. Man apart from God equals confusion.

As we transition to the context of the verse in Zephaniah 3 is all the peoples. Verse 6 mentions “nations”. Verse 8 talks about the “nations, kingdoms and the whole earth”.  Verse 19 states the “whole earth”Verse 20 discusses the “nations of the earth”.

Zephaniah 3:9 will undo the scattering and confusion created at Babel. In the Millennial Kingdom, humanity will be under the leadership of Jesus. People will be personally taught by Him in His ways. Under the leadership of Christ, people should generally have a better sense of direction and focus.

Red Heifer Update: Colombia, September 2020/Tishri 5781

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on September 24, 2020 by paulthepoke

Colombia, September 2020: So an ultra Orthodox Jewish student is living in Colombia… This young man was out minding his own business and spotted a red heifer candidate. He took a picture of the heifer and sent it to the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. Upon further review, the Temple Institute authorized purchase of said red heifer. Apparently, a significant portion of pesos was paid.

https://www.israel365news.com/158710/a-red-heifer-was-accidentally-discovered-in-colombia-watch

According to Jewish tradition, historically there have been 9 perfect red heifers. The 10th perfect red heifer is to coincide with the advent of the Messiah and the third Temple. These folks are committed and serious. Watch some of the video productions at http://www.templeinstitute.org

https://paulthepoke.com/?s=red+heifer

Let’s look at the qualifications of the red heifer per the Bible in Numbers 19:1-2.

Numbers 19:1-2 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, ‘Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.

The ashes from the sacrifice of the red heifer are necessary for purification prior to the building of the Temple.

Interpretation of verses provided by the Temple Institute. This is the criteria used for the identification of the red heifer.

…and take a heifer… Since the verse instructs us to take a heifer, we do not purchase a calf and wait for it to grow older while in our custody; “and take a heifer” means that the act of acquisition has to take place while the animal is a heifer. However, if a red calf is available, a price can be set with its owner, and the transaction can be concluded, but we do not take possession until it reaches the proper age as mandated by the Bible.

A heifer by definition is a female cow.

…an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect… This means that the presence of as few as two hairs of any other color will render it invalid. Even its hooves must be red. It must also be totally free from any physical blemish or defect, whether internal or external. A list of blemishes that would disqualify the animal for sacrifice are noted in Leviticus 22.

…on which a yoke has never been placed. The red heifer must have never been used to perform any physical labor. This would include riding, or even leaning on her. But if a yoke were placed upon her even once, even if she were not used to plow – this would be enough to render the heifer unfit for use.

Three to four years of age is an oral tradition that has been passed down through the generations.

The innocent, shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross is the fulfillment of forgiveness and the release from sin.

Hebrews 9:22 And according to the Law, one may almost say, all things are cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

As the red heifer was and will be again sacrificed outside the city limits of Jerusalem, so was Jesus Christ. As the sacrifice of the red heifer is for the purification and consecration of the people of Israel, so was and is Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate.

Christ’s sacrifice is not only for the people of Israel, but for all the people of the world. He is the sacrifice for all sin for all time.

1 John 1:7 but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Red Heifer Update, Three Candidates, August 2020

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , on August 16, 2020 by paulthepoke

Here is the latest from the Temple Institute and their quest for a pure red heifer. See the video and the information below from the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. Turn on the captions in options of the video for English.

http://www.templeinstitute.org/

Rabbi Azaria Ariel, who is leading the Temple Institute’s efforts to raise a red heifer for the performance of the commandment of producing the purifying ashes of the red heifer, recently inspected the current red heifer candidates and shared their status.

Of the two more mature candidates, one is still very viable, as Rabbi Azaria explains, despite currently having a few hairs which aren’t sufficiently red, as required by halacha (Jewish law).

Two new candidates were born in the early months of 2020, and they are currently viable.

The ordinance of the red heifer is described in Numbers, chapter 19. The purifying power of the ashes of the red heifer posses the ability to overcome the spiritual impurity contracted via physical contact with a corpse or cadaver, known in Hebrew as טמא מת – tamei met.

The renewal of the ashes of the red heifer would enable kohanim (Temple priests) today to achieve the highest level of spiritual purity, enabling them to resume their work in the Holy Temple, thereby eliminating one more stumbling block on the way to rebuilding the Holy Temple and renewing the Divine service. Rabbi Azaria also mentions just a few of the many other commandments whose performance will be enabled by or enhanced by the resumption of the ashes of the red heifer.

Following are Rabbi Azaria’s words translated into English. The video is subtitles in English, which can by activated via the CC icon which appears on the bottom right side beneath the video:

“We are hoping, with G-d’s help, to raise a kosher red heifer, with the intention of fulfilling the commandment of creating the ashes of the red heifer, and thus enabling all of Israel to be purified from the impurity of tame met, and thereby be able to perform many commandments that required spiritual purity, such as trumot and ma’aserot (tithes), and many commandments whose proper performance are reliant on the purifying power of the ashes of the red heifer. In the meantime we are standing next to a red heifer candidate whose status is somewhat uncertain. She bears a patch of hair that is not currently sufficiently red, but there is a very real possibility that these hairs will redden before too long. And then we will return and check her again, with the hope that she will at that time be kosher for the performance of the commandment of the red heifer.”

“The event used to be treated as incitement by extremists. Several secular media and filmmakers are attending these events on a regular basis and have come to realize that this is not political or extremist. This is an educational reenactment of something that was an essential element of the Jewish people that is explicitly described in the Bible. When the media view the reenactment in that light, they are very accepting.” -Rabbi Mordechai Persoff, Head of the Mikdash Educational Center

Trend Update: Temple Red Heifer/Priest Identification, April 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Sanhedrin, Temple, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2016 by paulthepoke

Exodus 28:1 Then bring near to yourself Aaron your brother, and his sons with him, from among the sons of Israel, to minister as priest to Me—Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron’s sons.

The Temple Institute is looking for a few good men. The Institute has begun the second stage towards building the Temple. They are trying to identify a list of Jewish priests who will be eligible to prepare the red heifer ashes and serve in the Temple.

The term for these priests is kohanim.

Here is the potential resume for such priests or kohanim. The man must be from the line of Aaron and be able to offer proof. He must have been born and raised in Israel. The kohan must not have come in contact with the dead (people or animals). The potential priest cannot have been born in a hospital. He should have no history of visiting a hospital. If the candidate has visited a cemetery, he is discarded. These are some of the ceremonial cleanliness laws noted in the Law or Torah of the Bible.

An eligible list of potential priests will begin training for the preparation of the red heifer ashes. The ashes from the sacrifice of the red heifer are necessary for purification prior to the building of the Temple. Directions for red heifer purification and priestly function are noted in Numbers 19:1-10.

The Temple Institute is committed to raising a red heifer. Not just one, but raise a herd of red heifers. I guess it is time to throw numbers at the issue instead of waiting for one to be born and finding it. The Temple Institute has joined forces with a cattle rancher in Israel. They have applied the best of breeding techniques, genetics, and embryology. Frozen embryos of red angus cattle have been implanted in Israeli cattle.

Numbers 19:1-2 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, ‘Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.

“This is a huge jump for the Temple Institute and a huge leap for the Jewish people. For the first time in 2,000 years, after miraculously returning to the Land of Israel, we are beginning the process of reinstating the Biblical purity of the Jewish priesthood.” -Rabbi Chaim Richman.

Kohanim have recently begun lighting the menorah using pure olive oil for first time in nearly 2,000 years.

The Sanhedrin have recently begun marking time as directed in the Bible with the identification of the new moon or Rosh Chodesh for the first time in 2,000 years.
