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!!!
