Prophecy Update #781 – A Kohen Brother

An embassy is the primary diplomatic mission in a foreign country’s capital, while a consulate is a smaller mission in a major city.

Israel on Monday struck an Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria, and killed a number of senior leaders of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, according to the Pentagon.

An attack on an embassy or consulate is an attack on the country itself. Israel & the US believe Iran is about to retaliate. It is just the kind of thing that would escalate the fighting in the Middle East. In fact, military strategists say it was intended by Israel to draw Iran into the conflict. That scenario would probably draw the US in as well.

While we are on the precipice of WWIII, a red heifer is getting lots of attention.

A red heifer is needed for a special sacrifice after which its ashes are used to ritually cleanse the implements of the Jewish Temple. Finding a red heifer that meets certain strict biblical standards is rare. The Mishnah, which is an authoritative, written embodiment of Jewish oral tradition, teaches that only nine red heifers were sacrificed from the time of Tabernacle worship until the Second Temple was destroyed in AD 70.

The Jewish sage Maimonides believed that the tenth animal would only be found and sacrificed when King Messiah was ready to appear.

This brief background helps you understand why a spokesman for Hamas cited the red heifers as a major motivation for their attack upon Israel.

The Jews believe they have found the Kohen who qualifies to lead the ceremony.

Kohen is the Hebrew word for priest and it is specifically used in reference to the descendants of Aaron. The Temple Institute released a photograph on twitter with the caption, “A KOHEN FIT TO PERFORM THE RED HEIFER CEREMONY!”

They said, “The young kohen in the photo visiting the red heifer candidates in Shiloh, is fit to perform the red heifer ceremony. He came into the world via home birth, has never set foot in a hospital or cemetery, and therefore considered by halacha (Jewish law) to be of the highest level of Torah purity, having never contracted impurity imparted by contact with a corpse.”

These events in and involving Israel are exactly what you’d expect from reading the Bible’s unfulfilled prophecies.

End Times events are going to progress according to God’s plan. The seven-year time of great tribulation is going to break-out upon the Earth. You can read about it in chapters 6-19 of the Revelation.

What you won’t read about is the Church.

We are significantly absent as God’s wrath is poured-out upon those who dwell upon the Earth

Jesus promised His Church, “I… will keep you from [out of] the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” (Revelation 3:10).

He keeps us entirely out of those 7yrs by raising deceased Church Age saints, and rapturing “we who are alive and remain”

The return of the Lord for us is imminent. It could happen any time. Nothing needs to occur before Jesus can come for us.

Are you ready for the rapture? If not, Get ready; Stay ready; Keep looking up.

Ready or not, Jesus is coming!
