All the information can be found here:

en.wikipedia.org...

Always interested me, i'm guessing you're hoping for something to happen when it's opened a la raiders of the lost ark.............who knows eh!

It melts your face obviously. Spirits punch holes through your chest, and you die horribly - if you close your eyes however, your face will remain intact and you'll live to see at least 2 sequels, maybe 3.

what do you think would happen to someone if they were in posseson of the ark of the covenant?



would it give them like god like powers or anything substantially cool or would it be in like in that movie 9th gate and hammering on the satan chick? that girl is mucho caliente.

Nothing would happen if you opened the ark. TRhe new covenant is in Jesus Christ The ark may be acred and invaluble, money wise but The power of God has been removed from the material possesion.

what if god made it more godly again.

then it would be best hidden, because it can be used as a weapon, they marched it out in front of their armies and God would slay their enemies for them, and isn't there something about any army with the ark being unstoppable? Not sure what would happen if you open it, maybe nothing, who knows. But personally i wouldn't open it.

Where is this Arc suppose to be now then?

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled, was convincing the world He didn't exist, with He being Jesus. When people don't believe Jesus came in the flesh, all faith in Him is lost!

its been proposed that the ArK served the function of a Capacitor...

its 'power' was stored static electricity,
as Bible books descriptions of it's having thunders & lightnings in it's presence,
so i guess it could be an 'Arc'


the tribes called it the power of their G-d,
while egyptians or greeks or babylonians who had batteries/electroplating,
had their technologies referred to as 'Magic' or fallen angel 'powers'

go figure

The Ark was more than just a capacitor. Look at other uses of it where the flow of the Jordan river was stopped when the priest carried the Ark into it. That's not explained by electricity flowing.


Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water's edge, 16 the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away

The priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan, while all Israel passed by until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.
Joshua 3


The Ark clearly had no power on it's own. We can see the entire set of instructions for it here. It was made out of acacia wood and overlayed with gold. The lid of the Ark was pure gold. While the Ark would have made a great conductor there's nothing about it that would cause it to store energy. We can even read about it being made later in Exodus 37. No one is killed touching it at this time and later in chapter 40 we see that it was still not a problem to touch it until after the tent around it was completed. Then Moses couldn't even enter the tent it was stored in.

It seems that the Ark was just a golden box with no power on it's own. Quite obviously it only had power when Israel's God was hovering near. The Ark is just a physical representation of something else we can't see. I guess you could consider it a scale model of the real thing. God's actual throne. God parted the Red Sea without an Ark and in Revelation we read about thunder and lightning around God's throne. If you could find the Ark I suspect it would do nothing at all.

I believe the Ark is a symbol. God told Moses to build it and he gave him specific instructions on how. Moses did so and by doing this he showed his love and devotion for God. So in return God would help Moses and his people with what they needed. By building the Ark, Moses formed yet another covent with God and the Ark was the physical representation of this covent. Thus it was called the Ark of the Covent. I believe the Ark is just a box....all the real power is supplied by God.

I understood the Ark's main function to be a means of mobile communication with the almighty and design is apparently a huge capacitor which makes the special instructions for carrying it very relevant considering that was a time before scientific knowledge of electricity and the physics of capacitors, conductors, dielectric materials etc etc

Suffocation?


The Mythbusters did an episode on the ark of the covenant. They reproduced one and tried to get the electrical charge due to capacitance. I believe they busted that myth.

no, not Just 'electricity' as we understand its nature & properties...

there's a more mysterious force involved, perhaps an application of the electro-magnetic spectrum that can change natural physics & the laws of gravity, fluid dynamics et al.



because if one reads further in the source pointed to;

only the 12 'Priests' who carried the Ark could be any nearer the Ark
than the 1,000 yard distance commanded to the Israelite population
as they crossed the temporarily dry river bed.

but.....later in the passages you pointed out, the Ark was a 'battle device'

not just a symbolic representation of a throne or something else in heaven.


No, the Israelites were commanded to carry this Ark before them as they
commenced to slay all the inhabitants of the promised land---which
included:
Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Gorga#es, Amorites, Jebusites,
[i notice that 'Palestinians' were not among the slaughtered peoples...]

Perhapse the monotaumic Gold theory?

I guess no one else read the assembly instructions for the Ark. The poles they carred it with were overlaid with gold, and the box was overlaid with gold, and the rings the pole went through were gold. The whole thing would have conducted electricty if it were just a capacitor. The priest could touch the gold poles, but not the Ark itself. Electricity is out of the question. Gold is the best conductor.

The Ark of the Covenant was supposed to contain: the Tablets of the Testimony (Urim and Thummim), Aaron's rod (the one that budded), and manna (the flour from heaven that sustained the Israelites for 40 years in the wilderness). I'm not sure if they are still all in there, or not.

I have had my own curiosity and speculation as to what powers the Ark might have had. There does seem to be an electro-magnetic component, or some other type of field manipulation that produces, at the very least, an anhydrous effect. The anhydrous effect does seem to be the signature power demonstrated by God Himself at the Red Sea crossing and via the Ark at the crossing of the Jordan. Remember, also, that sometime later, when the Philistines captured the Ark in battle, they were discomfitted completely by it.



The Philistines took the Ark to several places in their country, and at each place misfortune resulted to them (1 Sam. 5:1-6). At Ashdod it was placed in the temple of Dagon. The next morning Dagon was found prostrate, bowed down, before it; and on being restored to his place, he was on the following morning again found prostrate and broken. The people of Ashdod were smitten with boils; a plague of mice was sent over the land (1 Sam. 6:5). The affliction of boils was also visited upon the people of Gath and of Ekron, whither the Ark was successively removed (1 Sam. 5:8-12).

just google up MythBusters, episode on Ark of the Covenant

there's a list to choose from, but the episode 29 is where the Ark
being a capicator or having some electrical capacity was given a:

'Plausible' instead of a 'Busted' assessment

Your 'belief' was incorrect.
sorry
