Rev.16:12 - «And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the waterthereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared».
For the thousands of years the river Euphrates served as a natural barrier, separating Israel from all eastern countries. However recently Turkey has constructed a huge dam Ataturk, and now for the first time in the history it is possible to stop the waters of Euphrates and to drain its channel by simple pressing of the button.

recently became the owner of the unique
fixtures and other accessories of the former temple found at the
excavation. The people of Israel believe that all these relics managed to be
found recently not casually: God
has given them sign for the construction of the Third Temple to use all these
subjects in the temple service.
several items were absent for the temple services. One of them was the holy
anointing oil. God said that this holy oil should be from generation
to generation (Ex.30:31). To the regret of the keepers of the temple laws one of
the ingredients of this kind of oil: the tree «cassia» (Ex.30:24) today does
not exist anywhere in the world. The only two groves of these trees at the
Jerusalem temple were burnt by the Romans in 70AD. However some years ago near
the caves of the Dead Sea the Israeli archeologists dug out a clay flask filled
with the ancient oil. The scientists confirmed that oil was two thousand years,
and it is made of all components described in Exodus.
people of Israel know that they will be subjected to the important danger from
the part of the Muslims, if they will begin the construction of the temple, but
they want to build it whatever it cost.
ashes of the
perfect red heifer are necessary to purify the worshipers who went
into the Temple to pray (Num.19). Everyone entering the temple without
preliminary purity by these ashes should die (Num.19:13). The Jews consider that
without the perfect red heifer the Third Temple can not be constructed, and
Messiah will not come. The cow required for the ritual of purity should be of
the special very rare breed. In 1997 Jews, at last, with the help of the
American farmers, managed to bring up the required animal. However after her
achievement of the ritually mandated age of sacrifice, white hairs popped out on
the tip of her tail. The cow was not recognized as holy. But now she has a
successor born in May, 2002 (http://www.templeinstitute.org/current-events/Red
Heifer/index.html ), and
the rabbis who have examined her declared her ritually acceptable (though she
will not be ready for the sacrifice until she is three years). David Landau, the
columnist for the Israeli daily Haaretz
called the red heifer "a four-legged bomb" that could "set the
entire region on fire."
