Preparing for the Red Heifer Offering

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

October 15, 2022

Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,

James did not set me up the way he normally does so I have to use the old method this week.

We have come home from the Philippines and I have been busy sorting things out here. I am not able to get a rest when I go away nor when I come home. I could sure use your prayers.  We have many things on our plate and I hope to be able to announce them all to you shortly.

Third Year Tithe

We are halfway through the 8th month. This means there are still just under four months left until the Shmitah Year begins. Have you begun to store food away for the Sabbatical year from Aviv 1, 2023, to Aviv 1, 2024?  If you have, then that is awesome. I want to remind you not to neglect the Widows in this 6th year so they, too, can store food away.

If you want to be blessed by Yehovah during this coming time with high inflation and high prices for food, then do not neglect your duty now to your brethren. We kept the Feast last month, and the donations for the widows have dropped off. I will assume you are all now giving to those you know personally, and this is awesome. But if, on the other hand, you have just stopped because of donor fatigue, then be forwarned.

I want to remind and ask you all, have you remembered the widows and the orphans this year thus far? We are now in the 6th month. Many of you have supported this cause and I want to thank you on their behalf. I will keep reminding you about this responsibility for the entirety of this year. But this year does not end until Aviv, 2023. So we are not yet halfway. And having now sent out another payment to the widows, I can tell you that we have dropped off by about 60% in our support of this cause.

Let me share with you what one widow recently wrote to me about the recent flooding in Kentucky. Notice how your generosity towards this Widow was used to help those in that flood.

Thank you Bro Joe for all your efforts to be a blessing which I for one truly appreciate. And pray Father will bless you 1000fold in return. The devastation an hour from me is so hard to fathom. I found out today that a couple of sisters I had gone to church with and had moved back home to Hazard lost everything but what one could put in 2 Walmart bags. I wanted to help in some way but did not know what I could do until I saw their post, So was able to give them 100$. The sister I gave it too had come back to London to stay with a friend and replied you don’t have this to give – but I told her, Yes, I do. I have been blessed and I will bless you. An answer to prayer for me as I wanted to help somehow. My son just came and told me that he had heard that there have been some suicides by those who have lost everything. So sad for everyone, especially to the family who had 4 children torn away from them. As bad as this is, I know worse is coming.

Brethren I do want to encourage you not to let up in your support. We all want to receive the blessings, which only come when you comply with the law. This 6th year is the prelude to the 7th year of rest. The Sabbatical year also has things that you are to do to be in compliance with the Kingdom laws. 2024 is the start of the 10 Days of Awe and you do not want to be found out of His Grace at that time.

2022 is the 6th year of the 4th Sabbatical cycle. And anyone who has been reading our website for any time will know how to prove beyond all doubt when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are. Once you have done that then you will know when the 3rd and the 6th year of the Sabbatical Cycles are. We are told to raise a tithe every third year for the widow, the orphan and the Levite in your gates.

Here is a very severe warning from Yehovah to each of us.

Exo 22:21  You shall neither vex a stranger nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. You shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child. If you afflict them in any way, and they cry at all to Me, I will surely hear their cry. And My wrath shall become hot, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall be widows, and your sons fatherless.

We have now sent out  (as of June 20, 2022)  our 4th round of gift offerings that you have sent in for the widows and orphans. We have also supported a couple of other ministries that aid us in doing this work. This will fulfill the Levite part of the commandment. It was our desire to get the funds to them as we are told to do in Deuteronomy.

Deu 14:28  At the end of three years you shall bring forth all the tithe of your increase the same year, and shall lay it up inside your gates.

Deu 14:29  And the Levite, because he has no part nor inheritance with you, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, who are inside your gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied, so that Jehovah your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.

We will soon be making another gift to them. If you do not know of anyone in the faith who is a widow or orphan then you can send it to us. Make sure you write me to let me know that those funds are for the widows and I will see to it they get it. But if you do not write me then I will not know where to apply your donation.

May each one of you who has given to this cause, be blessed as Boaz was blessed by Yehovah for his generosity. May each one of you be known for your support of the laws that will make the Kingdom of Yehovah strong and righteous. And may Yehovah bless you so that what you give is never missed and you never lack for your generosity towards Yehovah’s heart.


We will be promoting ads, books, and upcoming meetings in this section. I hope you will check it each week, copy and paste it to your social media pages, and help us share this message. We need each of you to help here as much as possible. Make sure you copy the blurb for each ad when you do. Thank you in advance.

I could really use your help to share this work.

You can take each promotion and share it with your loved ones. They might start to watch. You can enter their names and they would have to confirm that they’re interested. But you can plant the seeds by putting these promotions on your social media page and sharing them with the ones you care about.

We are working on more promotions for the Ten Tribes of Israel, Heaven, Hell and It Was A Riddle Not A Command.

They all take a lot of work and James and I are going as fast as we can with them. When you do see a mistake, let us know so we can try to fix it.

The Elijah Trilogy

The Abomination that Makes Desolate, is written. It is partly edited. We need to go through this once again and possibly add a little more content.

The 10 Days of Awe, was written in draft. It needs to be organized and the writing finalized. Once this is done then it will need to be edited. I see this coming out in 2023. Do keep us in your prayers. I have a lot on my plate and I do need to get this out ASAP. 2023 and 2024 are right in front of us and this book deals with those things that come at that time.

The Restoration of All Things

The Restoration of All Things. Here is the link you can post on your page and help us to begin to promote this book everywhere we can.

Before Messiah Yehshua can come, Elijah must restore all things. What are those things that need to be restored? Have they happened yet? What was lost and when? When was it restored and by whom? Are you watching the right things in your walk?

The Mark of the Beast

Do you know what the Mark of the Beast is? If you have it read what Revelation 14 says: Rev 14:9 And a third angel followed them, saying with a great voice, If anyone worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark in his forehead or in his hand, Rev 14:10 he also will drink of the wine of the anger of God, having been mixed undiluted in the cup of His wrath. And he will be tormented by fire and brimstone before the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb. Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. And they have no rest day or night, those who worship the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name. Get the article, and let us show you exactly what that Mark of the Beast is. Once you know it, then you can defend against it. Here is the FREE offer. Just click on the link, and you will receive the PDF immediately. Shortly after this, you will be sent the other article on what the number 666 actually does mean. And once you see it, you will be stunned. If you can’t wait for this article to be sent, then here is the link for it as well. Read them both and tell others about what you now know.

The Key To End-Time Prophecy is the Jubilee Cycles

The Key To All End-Time Prophecy is the Jubilee Cycles. With the understanding of when every Sabbatical and Jubilee year was throughout history, you can then begin to see patterns develop of when Yehovah brought about major historical events. When you know when the Flood took place in that Jubilee Cycle, you can compare it to our current 120th Jubilee Cycle. Then when you do the same for the time of Lot, and read the scripture in Luke, you can get an idea when the Kingdom of Yehovah will be set up.

The Coming of the Kingdom

Luk 17:20 And being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered and said, The kingdom of God does not come with observation. 21 Nor shall they say, Lo here! or, behold, there! For behold, the kingdom of God is in your midst. 22 And He said to the disciples, The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you shall not see it. 23 And they shall say to you, Lo, here! or, behold, there! Do not go away, nor follow. 24 For as the lightning which lights up, flashing from the one part under heaven, and shines to the other part under heaven, so also shall the Son of Man be in His day. 25 But first He must suffer many things and be rejected of this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it also shall be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 So also as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but the day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from the heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so it shall be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. 31 In that day he who shall be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise, he who is in the field, let him not return to the things behind. 32 Remember Lot’s wife. 33 Whoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it, and whoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two in one bed, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two shall be grinding together, one will be taken, and the other left. 36 Two shall be in the field, one will be taken, and the other left. 37 And they answered and said to Him, Where, Lord? And He said to them, Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

Our books are based on understanding the Jubilee Cycles and how they reveal many end-time prophecies. You must also have an in-depth understanding of the Holy Days. To learn more sign up for our Newsletter at

The Mystery of the Jewish Rapture 2033

There are many people who kept Pentecost Sunday last weekend. Some are doing so this weekened June 12. Are you aware of the deep meaning of this day? If you did you would not be wondering when the Rapture would be. You would know for sure.
Come let us show you the deep meaning behind this Holy Day and how the understanding of it is revealing so many other truths. Order the book today and begin to learn these things right away.

The Riddle Rapture Book Offer

Once you understand the Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycles then you will begin to understand prophecy unlike you have ever understood before. When is the Messiah coming? When is the Rapture?
Jesus spoke in parables so that those who would not obey would not understand. If you do not know when the time of HIs coming is, and when the Saints will be raised or changed in a twinkling of an eye, then maybe, just maybe you are one of those who will not obey.
Those who do obey know. Order both books today and begin to understand unlike you have dreamed of before. Order them both now.
Here is what one person wrote who read the book.
I love the enormous amount of Scripture the author uses in teaching and making a point. Taking a single verse out of context can totally skew the understanding (case in point, Psalm 10:4 and 14:1 both say that there is no God). Instead of leading his readers to his belief system, Mr Dumond lets the Bible lead the way! He just connects the dots.
There were so many Bible verses I never understood, despite many years of Sunday School and Bible studies. Many actually seemed to contradict each other. Once I learned that the Bible uses idioms it made such a difference in my understanding. In English we say things like “killing time” or “kicking the bucket” and recognize that they express something other then the sum of the individual words. Turns out that Hebrew (the language the Creator chose to record His words) uses many idioms also. Recognizing what they mean opened up my understanding!
I’m about to go thru this book a 2nd time as there is SO much I didn’t get it all the first time!
Order your copy today. Start to read it right now.


Like many of you, I have read so many different ideas as to what the “Mark of the Beast” is. This “Mark” has been said to be the social security cards, or credit cards, then it was thought to be the barcode system, which is largely how we all shop today, but this ISN’T even on our hands or foreheads as the scriptures state! Then it was the RFID chip planted in our hands that caused an uproar.
Our Bibles explain this if we would just read it. Let me explain this to you. This is FREE.

Once you have read the Mark of the Beast then you will be sent an email to read The Bismallah 666. So you must sign up for one to get the other.

The Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycles reveal End-Time Prophecy

By understanding the Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycles, you can know when the 7th Millennium will begin. You can also know when the Rapture will be. When the Messiah is going to come.
It is the only way you can understand the Daniel 9 prophecy. Because of this, we were the only Ministry warning you about 2020. We have been shouting out that WAR would start, famines would start, and Plagues would start in 2020 and in this 4th Sabbatical Cycle. We have entered the start of WW III; famines are on the Nightly News, and COVID has rocked the world.
I am still shouting this warning, but the next curse is too unbearable to say.  What is coming is so horrible that you do not want to know it. But it is coming non the less. Worldwide Drought, Worldwide Famine, and Genocide on an unimaginable scale.

Sabbath Meetings

There are many people in need of fellowship and who are sitting at home on the Sabbath with no one to talk to or debate with. I want to encourage all of you to join us on Shabbat, and to invite others to come and join us as well. If the time is not convenient then you can listen to the teaching and the midrash after on our YouTube channel.

What are we doing and why do we teach this way?

We are going to discuss both sides of an issue and then let you choose. It is the work of the Ruach (Spirit) to direct and to teach you.

The medieval commentator Rashi wrote that the Hebrew word for wrestle (avek) implies that Jacob was “tied”, for the same word is used to describe knotted fringes in a Jewish prayer shawl, the tzitzityot. Rashi says, “thus is the manner of two people who struggle to overthrow each other, that one embraces the other and knots him with his arms”.

Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle. We are Wrestling with Yehovah as we grapple with His Word. It is an intimate act, symbolizing a relationship in which Yehovah and I and you are bound together. My wrestling is a struggle to discover what Yehovah expects of us, and we are “tied” to the One who assists us in that struggle.

Today, many say Israel means “Champion of God”, or better — the “Wrestler of God”.

Our Torah sessions each Shabbat teaches you and encourages you to constantly challenge, question, argue against, as well as view alternative views and explanations of the Word. In other words, we are to “wrestle with the Word” to get to the truth. Jews worldwide believe that you need to wrestle with the Word and constantly challenge Dogma, Theology, and views or else you will never get to the Truth.

We are not like most churches where “The preacher talks and everyone listens.” We encourage everyone to participate, to question and to contribute what they know on the subject being discussed. We want you to be a champion wrestler of the Word of Yehovah. We want you to wear the title of Israel, knowing that you not only know but are capable of explaining why you know the Torah to be true with logic and facts.

We have a few rules though. Let others talk and listen. There is no discussion about UFO’s Nephilim, Vaccines or conspiracy-type subjects. We have people from around the world with different world views. Not everyone cares who is the President of any particular country. Treat each other with respect as Fellow wrestlers of the word. Some of our subjects are hard to understand and require you to be mature and if you do not know, then listen to gain knowledge and understanding and hopefully wisdom. The very things you are commanded to ask Yehovah for and He gives to those who ask.

Jas 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.

We hope you can invite those who want to keep Torah to come and join us by hitting the link below. It is almost like a Torah teaching fellowship talk show with people from around the world taking part and sharing their insights and understandings.

We start off with some music and then some prayers and it’s as though you were sitting around the kitchen back in Newfoundland having a cup of coffee and all of us enjoying each other’s company. I hope you will grace us with your company someday.

Sabbath services begin at 12:30 PM EDT where we will be doing prayers songs and teaching from this hour.

Shabbat Services will begin at about 1:15 pm Eastern.

We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.

Torah Portions

We read through the entire Torah along with the Prophets and the New Testament, once over the course of 3 1/2 years. Or according to the Sabbatical Cycle which means we read it all twice over a 7 year period. This allows us to cover more in-depth rather than being rushed to cover as much as is covered on an annual basis. We allow all to comment and take part in the discussions.

Septennial Torah Portion

If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 6th year which is the 6th year of the Sabbatical Cycle, the one we are in now, as we state at the top of every News Letter. There you can scroll down to October 8, 2022, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about:

Leviticus 22

Ezekiel 20-22

James 3:19-5:20

If you missed last week’s exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.

Water Libation Ceremony

We are living in very historic times. We can now watch Kohen priests reenact the ceremonies of the Temple. We have just had 5 red heifers delivered to Israel in order to perform the Red Heifer offering sometime next year maybe. And then the Temple can be rebuilt.
Truly exciting times. But we are drawing closer to the end of this age when the Tribulation will come. And the evil one will also come and deceive many including the elect if possible.
You must be vigilant and study the Torah continually.
Tens of thousands of Jews gathered together today at the Western Wall Plaza for the annual Birkat Kohanim – Priestly Blessing ceremony, conducted twice a year, once during the intermediate days of Sukkot and again during the intermediate days of Passover.
The Priestly Blessing was a daily occurrence in the Holy Temple, and is daily occurrence in synagogues throughout Israel. (The Priestly Blessing is conducted only on holidays in the diaspora.)
What makes the annual Birkat Kohanim ceremony so unique and so special is that it is a national gathering in which Israelis from all walks of life gather together to receive the blessing.
The blessing is performed by kohanim – Temple priests – direct descendants of Aharon, the brother of Moshe, and Israel’s first Kohen Gadol – High Priest. Kohanim have zealously guarded their lineage throughout the generations, a fact which is further verified by a common DNA factor shared by all kohanim today.
The source of the Priestly Blessing is found in Numbers 6:22-27:
“HaShem spoke to Moshe saying: Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying: This is how you shall bless the children of Israel, saying to them: ‘May HaShem bless you and watch over you. May HaShem cause His countenance to shine to you and favor you. May HaShem raise His countenance toward you and grant you peace.’ They shall bestow My Name upon the children of Israel, so that I will bless them.”


We apologize for the last minute announcement, but due to security concerns we only now received an official authorization to hold our annual reenactment of the Nisuch HaMayim Water Drawing ceremony which was held in the Holy Temple each day throughout the seven days of Sukkot.
Today’s events will take place at the Shiloach (Siloam) pool in the City of David where kohanim (Temple priests) withdraw pure waters from the spring. Those attending will then ascend to the old city of Jerusalem where the ceremony will continue as the kohanim perform the water libation on a model altar. The event will be accompanied by prayer, music and dance!
The event begins at the Dung Gate entrance to the Western Wall Plaza at 4:30 PM today! It will conclude in the old city later in the evening.
Nisuch Hamayim Water Drawing Ceremony Reenactment Today!
We will be sharing phots of yesterday’s reenactment of the Nisuch HaMayim – Water Libation – ceremony that took place in the Holy Temple on each day of the seven-day Sukkot holiday. The reenactment was produced by the Temple Institute in cooperation with other Temple and Temple Mount organizations. It was led by Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the founder and head of the Temple Institute, and performed by kohanim (Temple priests) who have trained in the Temple Institute’s Nezer HaKodesh Institute for Kohanic Studies.
Thew public was invited and hundreds of people attended. The ceremony began in the City of David, where the assembled crowd, led by the kohanim, descended to the Shiloach (Siloam) Pools, at the bottoe of the City of David. The pure waters of the Shiloach spring were used in ancient times to anoint the Kohen Gadol, (High Priest), the kings of Israel, and for the ashes of the red heifer.
At the Shiloach spring a kohen filled a golden flask with water. He then ascended back up to the Davidson Center at the foot of the southern wall of the Temple Mount, accompanied by the the entire assembly. In ancient times, of course, the kohen would lead the procession back up to the Holy Temple.
This first set of photos focuses on the descent to the Shiloach waters and the filling of the golden flask.
Led by a kohen carrying the golden flask, the assembly heads down to the City of David.

Chapter 11 | Where is the Red Heifer Altar

This is the last chapter in our book The Abomination that Makes Desolate. It is done and in front of the editors now. We are about to begin working on The 10 Days of Awe book next. But I wanted to share this section here with you now because it could take some time before we have this out the door for you to read. So this is not edited and there might be a few changes before it is finalized. I hope it is a blessing to you in light of the time we are now in.

As I was doing the final edits to this book, Israel announced on Thursday, September 15, 2022, that five Red Heifers had just landed at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel. They are just over a year old and must be two years old before they can be sacrificed.[1]

This then makes them eligible to be sacrificed at about the same time we will be looking for the abomination to be set up on September 22, 2023. Are the red heifer offering and the abomination related?

The more I looked into this, the more I began to wonder and worry about what was about to take place in 2023.

We read in Numbers 19 about the laws of purity and how the ashes of a red heifer mixed with running water can make one that is unclean or in Hebrew Tame, clean and pure.

Jews, Christians, Muslims and Messianics around the world are getting excited about this prophetic news about the red heifers because once this ritual is completed then, the cleansing of the priests can be done, which would then be followed by the cleansing of the Temple Mount and then the building of the Temple.

They already have the stones for an altar, and they say they know where it is to be placed on the Temple Mount just east of the Dome of Chains, which is east of the Dome of the Rock.

They say the Temple was to be placed where the Dome of the Rock is currently. They also say they know where the Red Heifer Altar site is on the Mount of Olives, just north of the 7 Arches Hotel and south of the Church of Our Fathers. North is to the left-hand side of the picture below.

They also claim that the Red Heifer Altar is under the Church of Dominus Flevit – the Church of the Dama. This church is about mid-way up in the green area in our next picture.

The priests are ready, except they are not purified. And now they have the Red Heifer. Once they have the ashes then they will be able to begin purifying the priests, the High Priest and the Temple Mount area once they remove the graves of those who are buried there now.

We also have the Sanhedrin, who must next become the recognized authority in Israel.

Here is another view of the Temple Mount and the 7 Arches Hotel in the top right-hand corner of this picture.

Once they have the red heifer ashes, they must have some sort of bridge from the Temple Mount to the red heifer altar so that the priest who would then be cleansed would not walk over the graves of the dead who are spread all over the Mount of Olives.

The Temple Mount Institute has a picture depicting what this would look like, and based on this assumption, along with the assumption the Temple was once where the present Dome of the Rock is or where the Al Aqsa Mosque currently is, they have the bridge crossing the Kidron Valley as shown in the following pictures.

We must pause here a moment and look at the scriptures to learn something about where the Red Heifer will be sacrificed.

The gates of Jerusalem are named for their use. The Dung Gate leads out to the Hinnom Valley where the refuse of the city was deposited and burned. The Jaffa Gate leads to Jaffa. The Damascus Gate leads to Damascus. In Nehemiah we read about the Gate Miphkad.

31 After him Malchiah the goldsmith’s son repaired to the place of the temple-slaves, and of the merchants, across from the Miphkad Gate, and to the going up of the corner. (Nehemiah 3:31)

When we look up the meaning of the name Miphkad Gate, we can learn quite a lot about where it is located because as you are about to read, it was an appointed place – a very specific place. We have already covered much of this in our subsection titled Bethphage, Outside the Camp.

Here is the meaning of the word Miphkad from Nehemiah 3.

H4663 (Strong)  מִפְקָד  miphqâd  mif-kawd’

The same as H4662; assignment; Miphkad, the name of a gate in Jerusalem: – Miphkad.

  1. hm)Dqpm%(Dqpm% MP-QD) – I. Number: II. Appointment: Also an appointed place. [freq. 4] |kjv: number, commandment, appointed| {H4662}

H4662 (Strong)  מִפְקָד  miphqâd  mif-kawd’

From H6485; an appointment, that is, mandate; concretely a designated spot; specifically a census: – appointed place, commandment, number.

We also have this word for number H4662 used in 2 Samuel 24:9 and 1 Chronicles 21:5 for numbering, and in 2 Chronicles 31:13 as a commandment. The numbering of the people was to take place on Mount Golgotha at Bethpage.

The word Miphkad also appears in Ezekiel 43:21 where it is translated appointed. This is referring to a very specific place. The rabbis have named the altar of sacrifice for the Red Heifer as the “Miphkad Altar.” This passage in Ezekiel is speaking about the sin offering. The sin offering was also done outside the city at the same place as the Miphkad Altar.

Let me now quote Rabbi Richman about the Red Heifer location and the potential problem they have on the Mount of Olives.

Mount has been trodden down by Gentiles for nearly 2000 years. The Temple was destroyed after it was defiled by Titus and has laid waste until covered over by Islam. Before a Temple can be rebuilt, the site must be cleansed. Before animal sacrifice can be reinstated, the site and stone altar (of course an altar must be constructed first) must be cleansed. This is why a Red Heifer is required. I still see a problem. Before a Red Heifer can be sacrificed and burned, there must be access to the altar site and place of burning on the Mount of Olives. The Mount of Olives is nearly all controlled by Arabs. The approximate site of the altar and place of burning is under Arab control and is “trodden down by Gentiles” and must be cleansed prior to any sacrifice or offering being made. Remember the requirements mentioned in Numbers 19:9….. a clean place outside the camp. There is no clean place outside the camp, it has been defiled. I, therefore, believe that a quantity of ash from the last cow or “Ash of old” must be found and used to purify the site before a new cow can be offered.” – Chaim Richman

I am now going to quote the Temple Mount Institute from their Facebook page. In all of this thus far, we are showing you how they have assumed the Temple to be on the Temple Mount, where the Dome of the Rock is. It is from this starting point that all their calculations and conclusions stem from.

The Mishnah and the Tosefta to Tractate Parah (chapter 3) describe the location of the burning of the heifer on the Mount of Olives, in a place known as the ‘wine-press,’ due to its shape bring similar to that of a wine-press in which grapes were tread upon. This ‘wine-press’ was hewn into the mountain bedrock, beneath which cavities were excavated, in order to create a separation through which impurity could not pass, lest there be a burial site hewn into the bedrock below. The kohen who sprinkles the blood stands on the Mount of Olives and looks westward to the site of the Holy Temple and from there towards the Holy Temple itself, and in the language of the Mishnah (Meudot 2): “The kohen directs his gaze toward the Temple Sanctuary while he is sprinkling the blood of the red heifer.”

“The Gemara (Yoma 16a) calculates in detail the line of view of the kohen, who stands on the Mount of Olives and looks toward the entrance to the Temple. Thus, the priest’s gaze passes through four gates that stood in one line – the gate of the women’s section (Ezrat Nashim), the Nikanor Gate, the massive entrance to the Ulam (entrance hall of the Holy Temple), and the entrance to the Sanctuary. These gates increased in height as they approached the Temple. Thus the lintel of the gate of the Ezrat Nashim was only slightly higher than the level of the floor of the entrance to the Sanctuary. If so, then the location of the burning of the cow on the Mount of Olives should be exactly between the height of the entrance floor and the gate of the Ezrat Nashim.

Archaeologist Yonatan Adler proposes identifying the site of the burning of the red heifer on the Mount of Olives in the courtyard of the church of Domanus Plavit – the Church of the Dama, which is located directly to the east and at the same elevation of the opening of the Temple in the Dome of the Rock, as this is the only area on the Mount of Olives from where the kohen can look directly into the entrance to the Holy Temple, through all four gates described above.

Indeed, during the archaeological excavation which was conducted in the churchyard, and even in a survey done above the surface, he was able to reveal everything that was required in order for this location to be the actual site of the burning of the red heifer: the churchyard is on a rocky area and it is built on huge cavities carved into the bedrock. Between these hollow spaces exists a large area used today as an underground water cistern. A wine-press from the Byzantine period was found in this courtyard, which is reminiscent of the wine-press shaped location described as being the site of the burning of the red heifer in the Mishnah. In excavations conducted during the construction of the church in the 1950s, a mosaic of an important Byzantine church was discovered, attesting to the importance of the site as early as the ancient period. Like many Byzantine churches, this may also preserve the importance of the place even before the construction of the church, even from the time of the Holy Temple.

In these excavations in the 1950s, there was also discovered a large Jewish cemetery with hundreds of burial niches, tombs and ossuaries from the Second Temple period. Once again, the stark contrast between the two functions of the Mount of Olives increases: a cemetery on the one hand, and a house of purity on the other, upon which the purity of the entire nation of Israel is dependent. Similarly, it is said that they who burn the red heifer ‘purify the impure and defile the pure,’ and as the Midrash of our sages of blessed memory in tractate Niddah (9) states “Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean one? Not one.” (Job 14:4) This reflects the mystery of the purifying waters which purify the impure, but should another come in contact with these waters, he would be rendered impure.[2]


The true red heifer site is not on the Mount of Olives at all but is instead to be found on Mount Golgotha, as we have been saying in our Newsletters since 2006 and this book. On the Mount of Olives, the proposed altar sites are surrounded by the graves of the dead, and all the land is owned by Muslim or Christian Churches.

When we look at Mount Golgotha, there are very few graves to be found. The top of the mount is owned by the Dominican hostel Maison de Abraham. The rest of the mountain is occupied by Muslim believers. But directly outside the gate of the Dominican hostel is a small Jewish community known as Ma’ale HaZeitim, which was established in 2003.

It owns the land where the red heifer site could possibly be. The site inside the gates of the Dominican hostel is where Yehshua was crucified of which we have shown many times in our articles and publishing on our website.[3]

Here is an aerial picture of Ma’ale HaZeitim with the Maison de Abraham on the left side of the picture, starting with the trees.

Here are the potential red heifer sites with arrows directing you.

In the following aerial picture, you can clearly see the Temple Mount as well as the City of David. It is in the City of David that we believe the Temple once stood. Using the City of David as our starting point brings us to conclude that Golgotha is the site upon which Yehshua was crucified. This is directly across from the Gihon Spring and inside the confines of the Maison de Abraham.

The Mount of Golgotha was also known as the Mount of Anointment or Har HaMishcha. Once King Solomon began to build the altars to Molech and Ishtar, this Mount of Anointment became known as the Mount of Corruption or Har HaMashchit. This is supported by 2 Kings 23:13.

I have gone through this explanation to show you something that could be vitally important. If you do not obey Yehovah, if you do things according to your own ways, you become haMashchit, an abomination. When you mix the truth with untruths, you become haMashchit.

I understand we are speaking about the red heifer in this chapter. But when I read Isaiah 66, I am concerned.

He who kills an ox is is as if he killed a man; he who sacrifices a lamb is as if he broke a dog’s neck; he who offers an offering is as if he offered swine’s blood; he who burns incense is as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations. (Isaiah 66:3)

To better understand what is being said here, let us read what Ezekiel says about those who performed religious ceremonies according to the law on the very same day after they had sacrificed their sons to Molech. They had mixed the worship of Yehovah with the pagan religious ceremonies around them. This was an abomination.

36 And Jehovah said to me: Son of man, will you judge Oholah and Oholibah, and declare to them their abominations, 37 that they have committed adultery, and blood is on their hands? And they have committed adultery with their idols and have also caused their sons whom they bore to Me to pass through the fire to them, to devour them. 38 And yet they have done this to Me: They have defiled My sanctuary in that day, and have profaned My sabbaths. 39 And when they had slain their sons to their idols, then they came into My sanctuary in that day to profane it. And lo, this they have done in the midst of My house. (Ezekiel 23:36-39)

A similar thing is described in Matthew. The Pharisees were preying upon the widows and, at the same time, standing up and praying in public to look righteous.

14 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and pray at length as a pretense. Therefore you shall receive the greater condemnation. (Matthew 23:14)

Today with the Hillel Calendar being used by most Messianics and all Jews, they all celebrate the Holy Days of Leviticus 23 and the Sabbatical and Jubilee years at the wrong time. They may keep the Sabbath from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, but all the rest of the Holy Days they keep at the wrong time because they use the conjunction of the moon to begin each month and then for the fall Holy Days, they use the postponement rules.

This is an abomination.

You are to begin each month with the first crescent of the visible new moon. This is why and where we get the notion for two witnesses. On top of this, the year begins when you have enough barley to make a Wave Offering on Wave Sheaf Day. The Hillel calendar does not even consider this but uses the Metonic Cycles to determine when to add a 13th month. They have become separated from the land.

As they go about committing these abominations, they then seek to offer a Red Heifer and begin to make things pure in order to build a Temple. It is hamashchit and an abominable offence to Yehovah that they will not seek to obey Him first before they seek to draw near to Him. Remove the hamashchit from your being, or else your offerings will be as they are described in Isaiah 66:3.

    Shalom Bro Joseph and all Brethen

    Perhaps this burning of the red heifer and building the temple on the wrong site could be the Abomination of Desolation we are anticipating to happen coming Sept 2023?

    Daniel 11: 21-31 gives an explicit series of events leading up to the appointment of the abomination that desolates. What you describe is definitely the abomination of hypocrisy. But, I’m having a difficult time seeing the correlation. Should there be something I’m missing, please let me know.
