But what is the Ark of the Covenant, one of the greatest mysteries of
antiquity, on which fantasy, legend and history have continued to be interwoven
for centuries? The Ark, in Jewish tradition, contained the Tables of the
Law, that is, the Ten Commandments, and the artifact, made of acacia wood,
was built by Moses. The outside decorations were of gold, and it was for a
long time kept by the Jewish people. It accompanied them in their
vicissitudes, the battles and defeats, the wanderings and struggles against the
Philistines, and was kept in various places until King David placed it in the
fortress of Jerusalem.

But it was Solomon, son and successor of David, who put the Ark in the
Temple of Jerusalem which he had built. The story is then interwoven with
historical events and other religious and national traditions. In fact, the
Ark disappeared in 586 BC with the conquest of Jerusalem by the Babylonians
and the consequent destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem.

It is NOT about the pattern built by Moses; it is its signification!. Hence it tells you in Revelation 11, "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament"; analyze that for a second, and discern what it is saying: and discern everything written in that chapter before that point!

It is the same as those fighting for terrestrial Jerusalem and the temple mount: supposing it to be sacred ground. If you need to know the meaning of the above quote in Revelation 11, and these things I am saying, go to this thread: Revelations: the secret of life, as revealed to John by the Only-begotten Light. In it you will understand the mystery of God, and of the Ark, and of the coming of the Son of man: for the Seals are being opened.

Peace be with you!!!

I'm not a christian and think organized religion in general is exactly opposite of this stuff, but this is good stuff, and it's a shame it's not reflected in religion. Turns out, when it comes to god it's not about accepting and being/doing ignorant things, it's about gaining understanding and wisdom.

True enlightenment!

Peace be with you "badmedia"!!!

So, where is the Ark now? It has been years since this story broke and nothing revealed yet? Anyone hear any updates on this since then? I will be waiting for some updates from anyone but I'm not holding my breath.

It would be nice to get an update on this story...

As far as i know theres only one man thats "holy enough" to even stand in the Ark's presence...

So if they put it on display will we have a recreation of the final scene of raiders of the lost ark?
