The Copper Scroll Project: In Search of the Ark of the Covenant
The New American ^ | 3/8/18 | William F Jasper

Posted on 03/12/2018 4:16:23 PM PDT by Roman_War_Criminal

Readers of the Old Testament are familiar with the Ark of the Covenant, the sacred golden chest carried by the Israelites during their wanderings in the desert and finally placed in the temple built by King Solomon. The 1981 adventure/fantasy film Raiders of the Lost Ark by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas introduced a Hollywood version of the Ark to a much larger global audience outside the Jewish and Christian traditions. That movie ends with the Ark disappearing in a large crate, along with thousands of other similar crates, into a huge U.S. government warehouse.

The Ark did indeed disappear, but not following World War II, as Hollywood portrayed, and not into a top-secret warehouse. There is much dispute among scholars and researchers about when, and by whom, it was removed from the Temple. Some believe it was taken to Babylon, following the Jewish-Babylonian War, which culminated in 586 B.C. with Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II plundering and destroying Jerusalem, slaying most of the Israelites, and taking most of the survivors into captivity. Others hold that the Ark is in Aksum, Ethiopia, or that it is buried in a tunnel under the Temple, or that it is in a cave beneath Golgotha (also known as Calvary), the hill on which Jesus Christ was crucified. At any rate, it has been “missing” for well over two millennia, its location known only to God.

It’s not missing. It’s exactly where it is supposed to be.

Any pigastinian reservations can be thrown immediately into the dung pit.

Jeremiah tells us it will not be remembered or brought to mind.

I think the most likely story is the Babylonians. I do wonder what they did with it. Not something which was just junk to them. They must have known the story.

Is it still there somewhere? Maybe buried in the sands of time.

Why? Other than as an ancient artifact.

Jeremiah 3:16

16”It shall be in those days when you are multiplied and increased in the land,” declares the LORD, “they will no longer say, ‘The ark of the covenant of the LORD.’ And it will not come to mind, nor will they remember it, nor will they miss it, nor will it be made again.

17”At that time they will call Jerusalem ‘The Throne of the LORD,’ and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, for the name of the LORD; nor will they walk anymore after the stubbornness of their evil heart.…

31Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

The Birchites, writing about the Ark of the Covenant? And they didn't say it was "outside western civilization??

They ran an article a while back trying to talk Americans out of taking the side of Israel against Iran (what with Bibi having lived in Philadelphia and being a personable guy, and remembering what the Iranians did to us from '79 to'81). Yes sir. They were saying pay no attention to any of that; it's none of our business.

I think Pompey walked into the Temple in 63 (BC) and said the place was empty.

It is in ‘Heaven’ with the Owner. I have no doubt though, the fake Jesus, will use a counterfeit, here on earth, some day ... soon...

Well Israel has already created the 3rd Temple and it’s stored in warehouses around Israel. Also Israel back in the 90’s I believe commissioned the University of Mississippi to breed a pure red cow that had all white hair genetically bred out and the whole operation moved to a farm in Central Israel, the purpose of the pure red calf is to use as blood sacrifice in the Temple...

It melted and burned when Titus’ army burned the temple. He wanted the temple spared intact, but his men either ignored his order or the order got there too late.

Surely you meant to post that to someone else. My post on how anti-Israel the Birch Society is has nothing to do with it.

The Ark was never in the Second Temple that Titus destroyed.

It’s in a government warehouse in the Nevada desert.
