Biblically Pure Red Heifer Arrives In Ancient Shiloh, Captivating Visitors And Researchers
Shiloh was home to Israel’s tabernacle and was the center of spiritual life in ancient Israel.
Modern Shiloh built its synagogue to resemble the ancient tabernacle. When we visit Israel next year, we may be able to visit Shiloh to see the sight of the tabernacle and now the red heifers.
Red Heifers Arrive In Shiloh
7/21/23 By Tim Buck

New developments for “The Quest to Build the Jewish Temple” are coming at a fast pace. Don’t miss our exciting Movie Night in just over 2 weeks to learn much more.

Visitors recently flocked to Shiloh in Samaria’s Binyamin region to welcome a biblically pure red heifer back home to the sight of Israel’s first sacrifices.

The 22-month-old cow, which was brought to Israel from the United States, found a new home at the Ancient Shiloh heritage site, where the biblical Tabernacle once stood.

In the coming month, two more heifers will be transported to the town, and a center will open there dedicated to researching the phenomenon. The heifers will be kept in a fenced-off area, able to be viewed by visitors. Just a few years ago, this seemed more like a fairy tail, but in today’s end times, the impossible becomes reality almost daily.

Shiloh is an ancient city located about 30 miles north of Jerusalem. For generations, it was Israel’s spiritual center.
It was the first permanent home to the tabernacle where the Ark was housed, offerings were brought, and where Hannah offered her famous prayer.

The First Holy Temple was built in Jerusalem by King Solomon, roughly three thousand years ago. Until then, God’s “home” — the Tabernacle — was in Shiloh. Jewish spiritual life was centered there and Jews performed aliyah (pilgrimage) and brought offerings there — for 369 years, until the death of Eli, the High Priest, when the Ark was stolen by the Philistines and, it seems, Shiloh was destroyed (I Samuel, chapter 4).

The mysterious red heifer, or Parah Adumah, is first mentioned in the Book of Numbers, when God instructs Moses and Aaron to take “a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid.” The animal is subsequently slaughtered, and its ashes are used in a purification ritual.

The discovery of an entirely red such heifer is a rarity. Jewish sources state that only nine were slaughtered in the period from Moses to the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD.

In keeping with biblical law, the heifer put on display in Shiloh is completely red, and has never borne a yoke.

“This is an exciting and exceptional event for the entire Jewish people,” said Ancient Shiloh CEO Coby Mamo. “We are already in touch with researchers and promoters around the world who are waiting to come here with large groups.

We have returned to the site of the Tabernacle in Shiloh and are bringing back the Jewish past for the future of our people.”

Binyamin Regional Council head Israel Ganz called the cow’s arrival a “historic moment.”

“The Ancient Shiloh site is continuing to grow and develop, and the Red Heifer Center will attract more visitors, up to one million a year, from Israel and around the world,” he added, calling it “good news for the Jewish world, for scientists and researchers, and for everyone.”

The Greatest Prophecy In Scripture Predicting The Day The Messiah Would Arrive!

The Greatest Prophecy In
Predicting The Day Messiah Would Arrive!
6/27/23 By Tim Buck

9 “Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you; He is righteous and endowed with salvation,
Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Zechariah 9:9

So what do you get when you have the greatest prophecy in the Bible mixed in the same chapter with the greatest prayer in the Bible? You get another great FOTET class!

Daniel’s prophecy telling the day that Jesus the Messiah would arrive was fulfilled on Palm Sunday when Christ made His “Triumphant Entry” into Jerusalem, riding a donkey.

In Zechariah 9:9, the prophet speaks of the future king presenting himself to Jerusalem while riding on a humble donkey. This foreshadowed what happened 500 years later. As explained in Luke 19:35-37, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and presented himself as the Messiah, and King.

This took place exactly 173,880 days after Artaxerxes Decree in 445 BC, just as Daniel predicted on the dates in the above chart (Daniel 9:24-27). Israel should have known the day of Jesus the Messiah had arrived but like most people today, they were too busy to take notice!

Pathway To Daniel’s
Life of Spiritual Fitness

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.”

Daniel 2:20

The prophet Daniel, maintained a special walk with the Lord and had great spiritual vitality in the midst of a world that was often hostile to his faith. Daniel’s healthy spiritual life came about through his practice of at least six spiritual disciplines on a regular basis –


When he arrived in Babylon, Daniel refused to eat the rich foods of the king’s table and requested a simple diet of vegetables and water (see Daniel 1:12). While this was not a complete fast, Daniel restricted his food intake in order to maintain his spiritual focus. Later, he fasted while interceding for the restoration of Jerusalem (see Daniel 9:3). In Daniel 10:3 we read again of a partial fast from rich food, meat, wine and the use of fragrant oils over a three-week period of mourning following a vision of coming war and hardship.


Daniel prayed three times a day (see Daniel 6:10), presumably upon waking in the morning, at midday and before retiring at night. When his enemies passed the shameful law (Daniel 6) that you were only allowed to pray to the King, or be eaten by the lions… Daniel opened his windows and prayed to the God of heaven. He also prayed when called upon to interpret dreams for the king (see Daniel 2:18). His powerful and instructive prayer in Chapter 9:3-19, is possibly the greatest prayer recorded in the Bible and shows us all the elements of a rich, biblical prayer. Daniel’s wisdom and education were no substitute for his vital fellowship with God in prayer.


We know little about Daniel’s specific worship practices. The Israelites in exile had to adjust to the lack of a temple or place of meeting and the prohibition of sacrifices in Babylon. Nevertheless, we see evidences of Daniel’s beautiful praise and worship and his thanksgiving after God revealed to him the answers to dreams (see Daniel 2:19 – 23).

Bible Study

The study of the Scriptures also undergirded Daniel’s life. His insistence on a strict dietary code shows that he was familiar with the laws of purity, such as those in Leviticus. Daniel 9:2 records that Daniel studied the writings of the prophets, especially Jeremiah, his contemporary, who had remained in Jerusalem. In addition, we know from Daniel 9:13 he studied the writings of Moses and specifically the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Daniel read and studied God’s Word and memorized and taught God’s word, in good times and bad times, and this is what enriched his faith and gave him his deep understanding of God’s plan for his life.

Repentance and Confession

Repentance and confession also characterized Daniel’s life, as evidenced by his prayer in chapter 9. In this prayer he identified not only with his own sin but also with the sin of his people.


Daniel also practiced the spiritual discipline of service, regarding his work as the king’s political adviser as a ministry from the Lord. Daniel never compromised his beliefs, and his faith was evidenced in his work on countless occasions. Daniel shows us that faithful believers can thrive in the midst of difficult work environments and under deteriorating political conditions. Their lives can shine as testimonies to their faith in God.

The root concept of holiness is that of being “set apart” from the world. Daniel’s spiritual disciplines set him apart as God’s person from the very beginning of his time in Babylon. The Babylonians constantly tried to assimilate God’s people into their culture, changing their Hebrew names to Babylonian ones. Despite these efforts, Daniel’s spiritual disciplines helped him retain his true identity as a follower of the one true God and kept him from compromising his faith.

Daniel’s spiritual exercises also helped him look to God for strength when all other supports were stripped away from him. In the king’s court, Daniel lacked a favorable consensus about right and wrong. Instead, Daniel drew his strength and support directly from God. We, too, can use these spiritual disciplines to help us draw strength from God and walk by faith in the midst of our culture of opposition.

‘Daniel’s Prayer’
Daniel 9:1-19
May 18, 2023  By Tim Buck

“Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes.”
Daniel 9:3 

We’re always in a battle. It’s not a fight against circumstances or people, but against powers, principalities, and spiritual forces (Eph. 6:12). We certainly see the battle raging around us in the actions of men and nations, but it also rages in the heavenlies and even in our own hearts (James 4:1-4).

When Daniel read from Jeremiah 25, he didn’t forget for a moment this very biblical principle: prayer is the proper act in all times and circumstances. The fulfillment Daniel anticipated was one of great joy for the deliverance of Jerusalem.

Daniel’s prayer reveals much of what he believes about God, and it reveals how we, too, can walk with God in all circumstances (Dan. 9:18-19). With the promise of restoration at hand, Daniel focuses on God’s righteousness, remembering that the initial captivity of God’s people was due to His judgment against their sin and idolatry. Recognizing the people’s rebellious and forgetful nature, and not presuming God’s mercies, Daniel prays, “Lord, righteousness belongs to you” (v.7). It’s a prayer that offers us clear principles for how we can approach the Lord and His instruction.

First, God’s faithfulness doesn’t eliminate our need for prayers, but galvanizes it. In the face of blessing, the natural inclination of the human heart is self-congratulation. We like to take credit for the good stuff (but not the bad), and tell ourselves, “I must have done something good to deserve this.” But James reminds us that every good gift is from God (James 1:17) and depends wholly upon His grace. Therefore, blessings should always humble us.

Second, prayer fixes our thoughts on God, rather than the circumstances. Worry, fear, materialism, and selfishness all grow dim in the light of Christ. Our petitions are first and foremost to be for His glory as we seek first the kingdom of heaven (Mt. 6:33), just as Daniel petitions God to act for the sake of His own glory.

Third, prayer recognizes God’s goodness and greatness. Because of His goodness, we are called by His name and enjoy the security and joy of salvation. Because of His grace, we can approach Him with confidence that He hears all our petitions and confessions. Because of His greatness, we know He has the power and authority to answer.

And God Answers! 

God responds to Daniel not only with the assurance of Jerusalem’s restoration, but with the promise of “the Anointed One” who will satisfy the need for offerings and sacrifices and judge the destroyer (Dan. 9:25-27).

Praise God, our faithful High Priest Jesus hears and answers our prayers. Take a minute to be blessed by reading Daniel’s amazing prayer in Daniel 9:1-19.

The Temple, the Tribulation and the Abomination. Another Trailblazing Daniel Study With Today’s Current Events!

The Temple, the Tribulation
And Abomination

April 14, 2022 by Tim Buck

Daniel 8 and 11 describe atrocities against the Jewish people and their temple by Antiochus and Antichrist.

But how can Antichrist desecrate the temple in Jerusalem, when there was no Israel on the world map for more than 1,900 years? The re-establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948 answers that question. Our generation is watching the set-up and fulfillment of Daniel’s prophesy. What a privilege.

There is “temple fever” among the religious in Israel these days which is a harbinger we are getting close to the Tribulation.

We know that the Tribulation is a time of great trouble on the earth for seven years that occupies much of the book of Revelation while the church is in heaven. The temple will be built at the start of the Tribulation in order to give the Jewish people a jumpstart on returning to the Lord. For three and a half years, it’s hands-off Israel for Satan as Moses and Elijah explain that the daily blood sacrifices picture the blood of the LAMB.

The Temple Institute in Jerusalem has everything ready to go for building the temple including all the furniture and the Ark of the Covenant. Five red heifers arrived last fall from Texas, and four remain perfect enough for Temple sacrifice, as outlined in Numbers 19. The team who helped acquire and transport the heifers have located and purchased land on the Mount of Olives that’s required for the red heifer ceremony. They feel this crucial ceremony, outside the Temple Mount, could be held in as little as 1-2 years!

This is the very temple Antichrist will defile when he turns on the Jewish people in the middle of the Tribulation so you can be sure he’s alive right now, maybe teaching in a mosque in the Middle East and studying his Quran. In the near future he will rise and commit the Abomination of Desolation spoken of by Daniel and Jesus.

The Abomination refers to the evil act of defiling Israel temple by Antichrist which is typified by Antiochus IV in Daniel 8. Both instances reveal valuable insight as to just how much Satan hates the blood sacrifices. Six times scripture repeats that the enemy “stops the daily sacrifices.” His fury is cast upon the temple over his anger against the blood. Praise God for the blood of the LAMB!

What about anger in America against the blood? Anger and hatred for the blood of Jesus is showing up more and more in our nation as truth irritates the left, righteousness rubs them the wrong way and Christians are called “white supremacists,” as dangerous as terrorists!

The world is in the epic, end-time spiritual battle and we’re living in unprecedented times, prophetically. The stage is being set like never before as we draw closer and closer to the Rapture. Daniel’s prophecies that seemed farfetched, even impossible, are now easily understood and coming to pass on a daily basis! Keep your eyes fixed on HIM!

Daniel 8, The Villain Who Dominates The Drama!

Daniel 8, The Villain
Who Dominates The Drama!

April 11, 2022 by Tim Buck

Daniel 8 describes the prophet Daniel’s second vision about the future and once again shows us how empires play such an important role in Bible prophecy. The prophecy of Daniel could easily be described as God’s book of Kingdoms.

In His infinite wisdom, God uses pagan empires as His teaching tool to reveal His future plans and to weave in the story of Antichrist.

In fact, the entire end-times drama cannot be properly understood without understanding the role of the correct empire who brings forth the little horn. For that reason, Yahweh not only provided careful scriptural descriptions, but in chapter 8 he gives us a remarkable historical antecedent as well.

Ram and Goat

This time, instead of the same four empires that appeared in chapters 2 and 7 (Babylon, Persia, Greece and Islam), Daniel sees a ram and a goat depicting just the two empires of Persia and Greece.

In doing so, we see the search for Antichrist narrowing from four empires down to two. After the Rapture, Antichrist will emerge from the territory of one of these two empires! Before the Rapture we know precisely where our attention should be fixed!

While many prophecy teachers often get confused about where to look for Antichrist today, God, through the prophet Daniel, goes to great lengths to make sure we would know precisely where and when the final tyrant will appear.

This time, instead of seeing the “little horn” of Antichrist like we saw in chapter 7, Daniel 8 reveals a new “little horn” with the remarkable story of the forerunner of Antichrist, a character known as Antiochus IV Epiphanes.

During the 400-year intertestamental period, there arose in the latter stages of the Greek kingdom a Gentile ruler named Antiochus IV. History records much about this despicable and villainous ruler, but more remarkable is the prophetic anticipation of Antichrist.


The evil and rogue king of the Seleucid Empire comes charging on the scene accomplishing all the wicked acts of Antichrist. By presenting us with his cruel persecution of the Jews and his desecration of Israel’s temple, Antiochus emerges as the most accurate proto-type of Antichrist in the Scriptures.

The two men are so similar that when reading about Antiochus in Daniel chapters 8 and 11, you might as well assume you’re also reading about Antichrist. Therefore, the story of Antiochus gives prophecy students another layer of insight about Antichrist that’s rarely consulted. And what a story it is as these 6 verses show:

Dan. 8:10-12

10 And it [Little Horn = Antiochus IV] grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground and trampled them. 11 He even exalted himself
as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down.
12 Because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily sacrifices; and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered.

Dan. 8:23-25

A king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. 24 His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power [demonic]; he shall destroy fearfully and shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. 25 “Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means.

Are these verses talking about Antiochus or Antichrist?
