Mashiach will offer the tenth red cow according to Chazal. Thus, the existence of a red heifer is a possible, but not definite, sign of Mashiach. If Mashiach were coming, there would be a red heifer, but there could be a red heifer without Mashiach coming. In this study I would like
to examine the mitzva of the Parah Adumah, the red heifer. I am interested in learning why it is so important that we must read about it every year right after Purim.

BEWARE OF PREDICTIONS
by Donald Hank
I cringe when Christian leaders make predictions, especially when they name dates.
Mark Biltz, the author of Blood Moons has taken a huge risk, predicting the time of the Second Coming, and he has done it in a way that supports the godless Neocons and their targeted strike against Iran, all too reminiscent of how these despicable pols and their minions lured us into war in Iraq by posing Dubbya as a Christian and leading us into a horrible war that cost us a fortune and brought no gain -- in fact, its aftermath was the banishment of almost all Iraqi Christians. If ever there was a sign, it was that. But we do on following the godless Pied Pipers and that is a sin. Jesus Himself said only God knew the time of His coming and that even HE himself did not know. Shouldn't that tell us something about the godless error of making risky predictions? [...]

It’s Time to Bring Justice Upon the Criminal Administration of Barack Hussein Obama
by Tim Brown
We recently updated our list of Barack Obama's lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, waste to total 1,063 documented examples of his lawlessness. On Monday, The Sons of Liberty Radio show host Bradlee Dean cited some of this behavior. "I know a lot of people that would say, 'let the Lord deal with them,'" Dean said. "He is, and He would deal with them a lot quicker if the Church would act out what He commanded them to do." "Why do we need to wait for Judgment Day when they pass their natural life?" Dean queried. "Why don't we bring forth judgment today or tomorrow? That's up to us America." [...]

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. We hanged our
harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. For there they that carried us away captive required of us
a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land? If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand
forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the
day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof. O daughter of
Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us.
Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

Possible Parah Adumah (Red Heifer) On Outskirts of Lakewood, New Jersey
A fully red cow, which appears to be usable as the biblical Red Heifer, has been attracting increasing
attention on a small farm outside of Lakewood, New Jersey. TheCoolJew.com investigated.
Video By CJ STUDIOS - Full Article From Hamoida: News of what appears to be a parah adumah,
fully red cow, on a small farm just outside of Lakewood has been attracting increasing attention.
Interest has been heightened by her rapidly approaching second birthday, at which
point the cow would become permissible for this extremely rare halachic phenomenon.
"Somebody from Brooklyn called and offered me one million dollars for her,
but I told him that she's not for sale. This is a gift from Hashem," said owner Herbert Celler.
"When he asked me what I'm going to do with her,
I told him that I'm going to be the first in line when Moshiach comes."
A parah adumah, or red heifer, is necessary to produce the ash needed for the ritual
purification process, essential to performing the service in the Beis Hamikdash.
Since the cow's birth, on April 2, 2013, which fell on Isru Chag Pesach, Mr. Celler says that
he has been extremely vigilant in ensuring that she should not engage in any work or carrying an load,
that could halachically disqualify her, as well as doing his utmost to prevent her from incurring any blemishes.
"My workers know that no one is allowed to even touch her," he said.
A member of a breed of cows indigenous to the Netherlands, she weighs between 500 and 600 pounds,
which is on the lighter side given her breed and age. Born on the Celler farm in Howell, her parents appear
to be regular black cattle, although her mother, known as Bonnie, does have a tinge of red in her back legs.
Celler said that many ambitious livestock breeders have attempted to create red heifers through
genetic manipulation or other artificial means, but that this cow's red-brown eye color confirms
her authenticity. An electric fence prevents visitors from getting too close, but based on this writer's
unprofessional investigation she certainly appears totally red. No name was given. "If you have to
bring her for a korban, I don't want to get attached," Celler explained.
The son of Holocaust survivors, Celler has lived in the Lakewood area since 1961 and attended the
Betzalel Hebrew Day School. He operates a sheitel outlet, known as Classy Hair Design,
the profits of which go to aid poor Lakewood families.
"A lot of people have been coming to see her. Some Rabbis from Israel are supposed to come
check her out sometime soon," he said. "This is a gift to the Jewish people."

Breaking News: Red Heifer Born - at 5 months old ...
Emblematic of the rapid unfolding of events in these crucial times of redemption, a red heifer was recently born. The owners of the red heifer contacted the Temple Institute to share the news and receive instructions concerning the proper care of the red heifer. The Temple Institute contacted a professional documentary film producer who provided this exclusive footage of the red heifer. The ashes of the red heifer are necessary for the final preparation of the sacred vessels to be used in the Holy Temple, and for the purification of the kohanim (Temple priests) who will serve in the Holy Temple.

Shabbat Parah - שבת פרה - Hebrew for Christians
Shabbat Parah Adumah
The Mystery of the Red Heifer
by John J. Parsons
Four special Sabbaths occur just before the start of Spring: two before Purim and two before Passover. Collectively, these Sabbaths are called "The Four Shabbatot" and one of four additional Torah readings (called Arba Parashiyot, or the "four portions") are read on each of these Sabbaths in preparation for the holidays. The names of these Sabbaths are Shabbat Shekalim, Shabbat Zakhor, Shabbat Parah, and Shabbat HaChodesh, respectively.
The Sabbath that immediately follows Purim is called Shabbat Parah - the "Sabbath of the Cow," when the chapter of the parah adumah (פָרָה אֲדֻמָּה), or the "Red Heifer," is read following the regular Torah service (i.e., Num. 19:1-22). The early sages chose this reading for this time of the year because Jews were required to purify themselves before coming to Jerusalem for the pilgrimage festival of Passover.
The Red Heifer offering is considered a paradox to most Jewish thinkers, though it is clearly a picture of the Messiah Yeshua. The paradox is that the one who offers this sacrifice becomes ritually impure, while the sprinkling of the ashes is used to make people clean... The ritual is considered chok within the Jewish tradition, meaning that it makes no rational sense. In fact, the Talmud states that of all the taryag mitzvot (613 commandments), this is the only one that King Solomon could not fathom, since this sacrifice is the most paradoxical of all the sacrifices found in the Torah. The sacrifice of Yeshua the Messiah is the fulfillment of the symbolism of the parah adumah. Both were entirely rare and without defect (sin); both were sacrificed outside the camp; both made the one who offered the sacrifice unclean but made the one who was sprinkled by it clean; and finally, both sacrifices cleanse people for priestly service.

Parshas Chukas - Parah Adumah Demystified
Keeping the parah adumah absolutely pure takes years of coordination and planning. Remarkably, just before the climax of the operation, it declines into planned inelegance. Something like ordering the house specialty at a gourmet restaurant, and finding it served to you on a paper plate. Or putting regular gas in a Ferrari. They seem so horribly wrong, so out of character. [...]

The Red Heifer - My Jewish Learning
Reprinted from The Jewish Religion: A Companion, published by Oxford University Press. The Red Heifer (Hebrew, parah adumah), was the cow whose ashes were used in the [...]
What is the Parah Adumah?
The dictionary tells us what a heifer is:
heif·er (hèf er) noun - A young cow, especially one that has not yet given birth to a calf.
From this definition we can see that a cow is a young, female, cow. If the coat on the cow is red, then we have a Parah Adumah, a red heifer. (The traditional translation of the Hebrew “Parah” as ‘heifer’ is misleading, since among the specifications for the animal given by the Torah, the requirement that the cow not yet have calved is not mentioned and is relevant.) The mitzva of Parah Adumah involves taking a cow with reddish hair, that is blemish-free, i.e. fit for the Altar. Even though the Parah Adumah is NOT a korban; it is prepared away from the Mikdash and Temple across the valley, on the Mount of Olives, east of the Temple.
