Ark of the Covenant

Recommended Posts

I use to love the movie, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" with Harrison Ford.  

So what do you think, does the Ark of the Covenant still exist?  Where is it?  Will be found?  Or was it destroyed?

I believe it will be found, I believe it is in a cavern (likely) in Israel and that it will be the catalyst that starts the rebuilding of the temple. What think Ye?

I watched a documentary last week about a group that says they do know where it is....   but it is not time for it to be found until they rebuild the temple...   the Israeli government will get it when the time comes...…..

don't have a clue if they really do or not but the documentary made sense.

Many claim to know its location. I'm skeptical of all of them.

I think it is being stored in a secure location somewhere and probably won't re-emerge until certain prophesied events mentioned in the Bible take place.

I've wondered about that myself. The Ark is a representation of the real one in Heaven. Since we have the Gospel and live in the age of Grace, we would now call the Ark a Christian relic. The Jew's had ample time to hide their most precious Temple implement before their diaspora. These are only my thoughts that make sense to me...

In the tribulation (which I believe is so very close) the paranormal will become the normal; locust demons, false prophet and Antichrist miracles, image of the Beast which has life, 144,000 sealed by God, flying angel preaching the Gospel, etc. It is a time for a decision to repent and the Lord is not willing that any should perish. With the above including the Two Witnesses, the Lord is trying to change man's heart and repent. All the stops including the Restrainer have been removed. 

It would make sense to me if Noah's Ark and the Ark of the Covenant were revealed, to show God's Word in our Bible is true. Several different reputable Jewish scholars claim they know where the Ark is located, and I believe them. The Temple Institute says they have "everything" made and ready to go to resume Temple worship and sacrifice, including the trained priests. While the Ark is not required to resume Temple worship, I highly suspect "everything' will be in the Temple just as it was in the days prior to their siege. 

Daniels 70th week (the tribulation) is a continuation of the 69th week (we're in a 2,000 year old gap / dispensation so far called the age of Grace; for the completion and bring everything to conclusion; and the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Now does this exact continuation of Temple worship and animal sacrifice and the "Holy of Holy's" include the Ark of the Covenant? We don't know, or do we?

Jeremiah 3:16 (KJV) And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.

Revelation 11:v.19

19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the Ark of His testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Verses 14 to 19

14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of THIS WORLD are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats(Revelation 4:v.4) , fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art TO COME; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the Ark of His testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Noah's Ark is a simbol. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the Ark, and they KNEW NOT until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also in the coming of the Son of man be.

Let us be ready then.  Be ready.  Once JESUS does shut the door (JESUS is the door) as He did in the Noah's Ark you /we will not see His decision of this act in He himself, it may be now, even now, and you / we will not see, thus there will not be more salvation absolutely, who is ready and be inside is saved, who is not ready is lost for ever.  Let us wake up. Wake up, though it be midnight.

But at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him. They which that be ready will be in with Him to the marriage, and the door is shut for ever like the door of the Noah's Ark (Gen.7:v.16).   How blessed are those who have been invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb. 

Remember. JESUS warned: Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also in the coming of the Son of man be.
 

Colossians 3:v.1-4

1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are ABOVE, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things ABOVE, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall APPEAR, then shall ye also APPEAR with Him in glory.

Shalom brother,

Great question.  

There are a lot of theories as to it's location.  I've looked into most of them and the most prominent theories are:

  • In Ethopia
  • Under Golgotha
  • Inside Mt Sinai
  • Under the Temple Mount
  • In Heaven

The Ark has always been fascinating to me. It's easily the most sacred article of our past which is imbued with much divine protection.  We are literally talking about a model of the Throne of Elohim that was in use.  However, I think we need to be careful of reacting too positively to it, if it is found prior to the Third Temple.  We live in an age of amazing technology where such a "find" may be a complete fabrication - standing up to testing and showing "wonders".

But the Ark may never be found or ever return.  Consider this verse in Jeremiah 3:16

"In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land," declares Yahweh, "people will no longer say, 'The ark of the covenant of the Yahweh.' It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made."

Maybe we will get to see the original Ark one day.  But it could be that, when the Kingdom arrives in its fullness and the Lord Yeshua walks the streets of New Jerusalem and The Father sits enthroned amongst us, such relics will hold little interest for us, other than for retrospective educational purposes.

Love & Shalom

Interests:   Biblical Studies & Jewish Roots

 

Do you want to know the Jewish Roots through your biblical studies? It seems a mystery, but it is not, as follow:

Luke 11:v.49-51 & 53-54

49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:

50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

From the blood of Abel?  Do you see? Here we can get very near of the Jewish roots  

53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:

54 Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.

 

JESUS said to the Jews: John 8:41 - 45

41 Ye do the deeds of your father -

Then said they to JESUS, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.  45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
