Will This Red Heifer Fulfill Bible Prophecy?

By John Livingston Clark

The Jewish people are getting very excited because a red calf has been discovered in the United States. The location is not important, but what is significant is that it could turn out to be a heifer necessary to fulfill Bible prophecy. They are extremely rare but are a requirement to be used in Temple worship.

Numbers 19:2 says to bring an “unblemished red heifer in which is no defect, and on which a yoke has never been placed.” There are strict requirements for the cow to be used as part of the Temple ritual. Just two single hairs of a color other than red disqualifies it and it cannot be put to any kind of work. It cannot be ridden, have a cloth put on its back, or even leaned against. To insure that none of this happens requires the calf to be under watchful care until at least three years old.

In Old Testament Jewish teaching, for the most serious defilement, it was necessary to have a cleansing ceremony with the ashes of a red heifer before entering the Temple courtyard. So, the potential discovery of this rare cow makes worship on the Temple Mount a possible reality. It will be another two and half years, though, before it is known whether or not this calf qualifies as THE red heifer. If it does it could help fulfill a huge piece of Bible prophecy. Many Jews believe that Moses prepared the first red heifer and that Messiah will prepare the last one. If there is serious evidence that this cow is the one it will be brought to Israel as part of the other preparations for the rebuilding of the Temple, which are already underway by the Temple Institute in Jerusalem. According to the web page from which this information was taken there has not been a red heifer in Israel for 2,000 years!

This also has a huge importance for the rebuilding of the Temple because, according to another website called “Right Side News,” without a red heifer making it possible for ceremonial purification there would be no point in even erecting the Temple. It is, indeed, interesting how this piece of fulfilled prophecy hinges on one single cow. The rebuilding of the Temple is important not only because the Jewish people will return to temple worship, but because it would clear the way for another fulfilled prophecy stated in II Thessalonians 2:4 that says the anti-Christ will take his seat in the Temple, claiming that he is God.

There is much interest in Bible prophecy by both Christians and non-believers. For Christians it is a very exciting time, while the secular culture is seeking answers as to what is happening in the world, and why. Time is getting short as we see more and more things unfolding before our eyes. Refer to the article, “The Last Days,” by another Bottom Line author. In the video below you may be looking at the red calf that could help fulfill Bible prophecy. Consider putting your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for your eternal salvation, today, before it may be too late.

Bible Versions Or Proper Interpretation?

I recently interacted with a person online who uses only the King James Version and ...


  1. Wow! This is a great article. I really enjoyed it!

  2. I heard many years ago at a church service that the red heifer disappeared off the face of the earth at the time of the crucifixion. God was establishing a new way to come to Him by the fulfillment in prophecy regarding His Son, our Messiah, and the church which would represent His body on earth by a new covenant He spoke about during the last supper meal He had with the disciples.
    He told them of the destruction that would come to the temple in Jerusalem and the scattering of the nation because they failed to see the truth regarding who He was.
    This has been a major problem in order to establish a new temple because the blood of a red heifer had to be instrumental in the cleansing and preparation for this temple to be put in operation.
    I also heard at that time in the church service about some Israelies spotting cattle who were roaming the desert and when captured they were amazed that these weren’t ordinary cattle but red heifers. But this was just the beginning of their hope to find the perfect one for this purification right. It has since lit the spark to bring about this new temple. This was many years ago but it was an exciting event and great to hear any updates regarding this matter.
    Looks like we are nearing the end of the age of the Gentiles.

  3. This is exciting news! Thank you for writing this article, John. Bible prophecy is one of my favorite subjects of God’s Word. He tells it all ahead of time so that we will be able to prepare for His Return. I hope and pray that many will read and adhere to Jesus! God bless!
