End times are here, apocalypse cow found in New Jersey - Cetil - 04-02-2015

"A fully red cow on a small farm outside Lakewood, New Jersey is attracting worldwide attention in orthodox Jewish circles and various movements with a Messianic or “End of Days” bent. Let me explain why.

In the Biblical Book of Numbers (19:2-13) it stipulates that the only way to purify oneself after contact with the dead is to be sprinkled with water that is a mixture of hyssop, cedar-wood, scarlet and the ashes of a red heifer or cow – in Hebrew, “Parah Adumah” – sacrificed on the altar of the Holy Tabernacle. Put differently, according to Biblical law, to overcome the impurity of death, one needs a kosher red heifer for a sacrifice in the Temple. For a red cow to be “kosher” it must be totally red. A mere two black or white hairs, in close proximity to each other, disqualifies it. After the Biblical Exodus, the Tabernacle that Moses built served the Israelites for 40 years in the Sinai desert. Then there were two Temples that stood in Jerusalem for about a thousand years, from the 10th century BCE until the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. Since then, there has been no Temple and, as far as we know, no kosher red cow – until now.

Many believe that kosher red cows will once again appear when the Temple in Jerusalem – the House of God – is about to be rebuilt. The ingathering of the Jewish people and the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 has been seen by believers as signs of the impending arrival of the Messiah, the rebuilding of the Temple and the inauguration of the “Kingdom of God” – a qualitatively new phase in human history. For believers, the sudden appearance of a red heifer could be interpreted as a sign of the impending Messianic age.

And now it seems that such a red heifer – two years old and unblemished – has appeared in Howell, New Jersey. The red cow was born to two black bovines on the farm of Herb Celler, the son of Auschwitz survivors. Rabbis are presently arriving from various locations around the world and, so far, the cow has passed the kosher test with flying colors – so to speak. Mr. Celler said he was offered one million dollars for the cow. He turned down the offer, however, and plans to send the red heifer as a gift to Israel."

The author of that piece is really starting to bother me, which is funny since his name, Simcha, means joy in Hebrew. He is one of the foremost proponents of the idea that Jesus Christ married Mary Magdalene, and he has sought secret evidence encoded in Early Christian literature in a pitiful attempt to bolster this claim. (Really, it is just self-promotion combined with very creative reading.) He also claims to have discovered not just Christ's real tomb, but the family tomb used by Christ's relations as well.

For the life of me, I have no idea why the public, the people who buy books and watch documentaries, are so obsessed with learning about Jesus from the people least equipped to say anything of value: self-important Jewish hucksters like this Shmekele Jacobici and Shmundie Boteach (who positioned himself as Michael Jackson's rabbi and chief apologist in the news media), or fork-tongued Mohammedans like Reza Asslan, or centenarian infidels like that leather-skinned apostate John Dominick Crossan.

-I'm not saying people should watch this.  It is just the first thing that came to mind.

It's because they believe Christians are inherently untrustworthy when it comes to these matters. They are also drawn to anything that seems to show the faith to be false; they find it titillating.

I posted this for humor's sake only, Jacobivici is surely not reliable. Nor is this the first red cow born in in recent times. A google search shows various others including one born in Israel in 2002. But just wait until Pastor Hagee gets a hold of this, lol

The Tick and his friends faced Apocalypse Cow in the first episode of the eponymous TV show back in the 90s.  The world still seems to be here...

Happy Easter, Fish Eaters!

Well we got the four blood moons on the Jewish feasts last year this year (one just occurred yesterday at the start of Passover)
We have 100 years since Fatima coming up in 2017 (with whether the consecration of Russia ever having happened being debatable).

...and now apocalypse cows. Oh, brethren, it's going down.

I am less impressed with the "blood moons" stuff all the time. Only one of the four blood moons on Jewish feasts is actually visible in Israel and then only for a short time. If what is really just an ordinary lunar eclipse had significance for Israel they would not be out of the loop.
