Based on my own research over the years, here's what I can add. Some of my opinion is speculative, while other parts can clearly be
First, let me say that the Bible is a cryptic book, encoded with rich symbolism that not many people in modern times can decipher. The keys ARE out
there, but it takes a whole lot of reading from various source materials to grasp even a portion of what the Bible has hidden. Intrinsically, people
know this, as it is still the most purchases book of all time, even if most never pick it up and read it. Many of those source materials include
other eastern religious texts, astronomy, astrology, and even spiritual alchemy, not to be confused with satanic ritualistic magic and such....I'm
talking about the practice of the prophets. They WERE alchemists! They were also scientists, astronomers, natural doctors, herbalists, and
mathematicians. Only back then, they were called prophets, wise men, magi, etc. Like everything in life, this could be used for good and also could
be used for evil. In modern times, however, any mention whatsoever into the esoteric "cult" realm, automatically deemed the material evil, so the
masses have been content to not dare to look, otherwise they be labeled heretics and blasphemers. I do believe this is one of the biggest secrets of
all time, and if people could just get past the indoctrination of their "doctrines of men" long enough to reach for it, much of the world's
problems would cease to exist.
Current religions (take your pick), teach the Bible from a literal standpoint. While some passages may in fact be literal, it is my humble belief
that much of it is intentionally allegorical, meant to deliberately hide secrets only for those "with eyes to see and ears to hear". So if you're
not looking, you'll never "see", and thus live life out in a modern religion, happy with the literal translations within the texts, never knowing
I found it ironic that you posted on one of my favorite topics, as I've long pondered the depths of what the Ark really was. One thing I've
discovered, especially in the Old Testament, is that much of the symbolism is both physically real and also an inner representation of humans. (The
"as within, so without" mentality). Take, for instance, the temple. Look at it's dimensions, it's contents, etc., and it is not hard to quickly
realize that the temple represents an area of the human body....the brain, and more specifically, the pineal gland (the holy of hollies where only the
prophets could enter). The 7 churches represent the seven chakra centers of the body, the 12 tribes represent the 12 zodiacal signs, with the 13th
sign (Ophiucus) also being named in the Bible as Dinah - the sister to the 12 brothers. In the new testament, it is quite similar information, but
"reworked" and rewoven into new stories. The 12 disciples again represent the 12 zodiacal signs, with the 13th (Ophiucus) being represented as
Mary. The cherubim ALWAYS represent zodiac signs....the man, the bull, the lion, and the eagle are all ancient representations of the astrological
"cross" in our zodiac. They didn't use the same symbolism that we do today, so a quick reference into how zodiac signs were represented in ancient
times is all that is needed for the light to go on! But where the ark was used in the Old Testament, Jesus took it's place in the new. Notice that?
More on this in a moment....
Much of alchemy and ancient eastern philosophy has practices steeped richly in creating physical representations of the inner changes they wished to
manipulate and control. By doing it physically on the outside, the change would also occur on the inside. Perhaps when the world rediscovers this
hidden knowledge, the "temple" will be rebuilt....literally.
The Ark, however, was a little different to me...
