The Ark Of Covenant

Introduction

The ark of the Covenant is also said to be lost. Lost to whom? It was never lost to the Israelites. It became lost when Israel as a nation ceased to exist. Therefore, when the hebrews are restored as a nation, the ark of the covenant also gets restored.

Ark of the Covenant

The ark of the Covenant is the primary channel through which the Levites of Israel communicate with God. Therefore, one cannot have the restoration of the Israelites without their means of communication with the Almighty. That would be a farce.

History

God commanded Moses to construct the Ark while the Hebrews were still camped at Sinai (Ex. 25:10-22; 37:1-9). The Ark was a box with the dimensions of two-and-a-half cubits in length, by one-and-a-half cubits in heights, by one-and-a-half cubits in width (a cubit is about 18 inches). The Hebrews constructed it with acacia wood, and plated it with pure gold, inside and out. On the bottom of the box, were four gold rings, through which were put two poles, also made of acacia and coated in gold. The family of Aaron's aka Kohath, of the tribe of Levi, carried the Ark on their shoulders using these poles.
Covering the box was a pure gold covering that was two-and-a-half by one-and-a-half cubits. Attached to the covering were two sculpted Cherubs, also made of pure gold. The two Cherubs faced one another, and their wings, which wrapped around their bodies, touched between them.
During the conquest of the land of Canaan, the resting place for the Ark was the Tabernacle - the portable Temple used in the desert. The Tabernacle contained other vessels also used in the physical worship of God.

 

The Ark of the Covenant's Whereabouts

Please remember that the Hebrews built the Ark of the Covenant. Therefore, upon identifying and bringing the Hebrews together as Israel, they can easily rebuild for themselves a new Ark of the Covenant. Thus what is important is to find the Hebrews in Africa and elsewhere in the world and then gather them back as a nation. After which, they can rebuild the Temple and the Ark of the Covenant.Then onwards, the Levites aka the priest-line through whom the Ark of the covenant comes alive can begin to use it for spiritual and pragmatic purposes. For example, to communicate with God just as their ancestors did in ancient Israel. We had to remember that the Ark of the Covenant only works when under the control of the Levites. The holiness of the Ark makes it dangerous to those who came in contact with it. Therefore, under anybody else's possession apart from Levites, the Ark of the Covenant is lethal.

In the book of Samuel in the Bible, we read, when the Ark was lost in war with the Philistines, and the enemy took possession of the Ark. Instead of being a blessing it turned out to be a vessel of suffering to them. In fact, many people, including some who merely looked at the Ark, were killed by its power. In desperation to rid themselves of the holy relic, the Philistines sought out the Hebrews and restored it back to them. What we learn from reading this experience of the Philistines with the Ark is that it is useless to anyone apart from the true Israelites aka the Hebrews. Apart from these, the ark only brings curses and suffering to any non-Hebrews that come near it or take possession of it. (1 Samuel chapters 4, 5 and 6)

Even among the Israelites, God only allowed the Levites to interact with the Ark. Even so, God warned the Priests, who served in the Tabernacle and Temple that viewing the Ark at an improper time would result in immediate death (Num. 4:20). Again, we read in the Bible when a non-Levi touched the ark, God struck him dead immediately. (1 Chronicles 13:9 and 1 Chronicles 15:1) What we learn from those scriptures is only the Levites can touch the Ark of the Covenant. Uzzah was clearly not a Levite from reading 1 Chronicles 15:1. Because we can see that David had learned the lesson of what happened to Uzzah in the sense that a Levi in a similar position Uzzah found himself would have known what was the best action to take. Clearly, Uzzah was deficient in this regard thus the scripture shows he was not a Levite. King David clearly having learnt from his mistake on who was to attend the ark and thus commanded only the Levites are allowed near the it.


With these stories in mind we can say for certain that the Ark of the Covenant is not in anyone's possession on this Earth. Therefore, when people talk of the ark of covenant being in a particular location, what they fail to take on board is the unique quality that the Ark of the Covenant is lethal in anyone's possession apart from the Levites. This being the case, I am sure you will agree, what comes first is not what happened to the Ark of the Covenant. The important first step is to restore the Hebrews as a nation. After which, they can rebuild the Ark of the Covenant, because they only have the right to do so.

    I forgot to add the following scriptures which shows Jesus' death was RANSOM to save mankind and give back what Adam lost.

    28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a RANSOM for many.
    Matthew 20:28

    who gave himself as a RANSOM for all men--the testimony given in its proper time.
    1 Timothy 2:6.

    9 God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a SACRIFICE to take away our sins.
    1 John 4:9, 10

    Hello Tzephanyah,

    First of all, where did you read in this discussion any mention of a child dying for the sins of the Father? Can you please cut and paste where you read that? I can assure you, until you introduced it, no one was discussing anything remotely like that.

    The word used in the discussion is RANSOM. I believe you're confusing the word RANSOM with something else. Your response dwelling on sons dying for the sins of the fathers suggests to me you you misunderstood what the word Ransom means. Ransom does not mean sons being punished for the sins/crimes of their fathers as you are implying let alone attributing it to me as what I said.

    Let me give you the dictionary explanation of the word RANSOM so that there is no confusion to its meaning.

    "RANSOM = (noun) a sum of money or other payment demanded or paid for the release of a prisoner."

    As you can see by the Dictionary meaning of the word, there is nothing in that explanation of the meaning of RANSOM to suggest what you are implying. How you arrived at that conclusion beats me.

    Now that you know EXACTLY what Ransom means (PAYMENT FOR TH THE RELEASE OF SOMETHING). Hopefully you will understand what the scriptures meant by Jesus' death was a RANSOM sacrifice.

    From Genesis to Revelation the Bible talks about the RANSOM sacrifice necessary to BUY BACK what Adam lost. At the first opportunity God made it clear to Abraham, it was through his seed that this RANSOM would be provided, Gen 12:3.

    Adam's fall in the Garden lost him and his progeny eternal life and introduced DEATH to mankind. To RESTORE what Adam lost, there was a need to BUY-BACK what was lost by giving in EXCHANGE something SIMILAR to what was lost. That is the simple meaning of RANSOM.

    Because Adam was perfect human being before his fall, to BUY-BACK aka RANSOM what he lost demanded someone of EQUAL measure, in this case another PERFECT human being. No more, no less! This God provided through Jesus' birth and death.

    Here are some scriptures to explain the relation between what Adam lost and what Jesus RESTORED.

    Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.
    Romans 5:14

    Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15:45

    12Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned

    16Again, the gift of God is not like the result of the one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
    18Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification that brings life for all men. 19For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
    Romans 5: 12 & 16 -19

    Shalom Mawuli, I have to strongly disagree with your comment regarding the "Jesus' RANSOME sacrifice." There is no such thing ever mentioned in the Hebrew scripture of some man dying for the sins of not only Yisrael but the entire world. You won't find that concept in the Book of Remembrance. Deut 24:16 explicitly says a father CANNOT die for the sins of his children nor the children their father. That same thought is conveyed through the prophet Ezekiel as well 18:10-22. Peace and blessings!

    Hi Tonya,

    I have already answered this question to your husband. Why would something of a sexual nature be sin to Adam and Eve when they were husband and wife? Adam and Eve NOT having sex would have been another grievous sin, since God's command to them was to have sex and populate the earth.

    Do you think that upon introduction to sin that something in a sexual nature took place in the garden? Something un-natural and not acceptable by GOD. My concern is all the cheating that men do on their wives,where did that origin start?

    Hi mark. The first command God gave mankind was to have sex (Genesis 1:28). Eve's sin was disobedience to God's law at the time. Therefore, since Adam and Eve were commanded to have sex before Eve's sin, it is obvious, Eve's sin had nothing to do with sex.

    Hi, my name is Mark and the husband of tonya and grew up in a christian home my father was a methodist minister until he passed in 2000. i say this to give you a liitle background on my laymam status as a bible scholar. my question is: do you believe that sex was a holy blessing from God and some where during the disobedience of Adam and Eve had something to with sexual behavior due to the fact of how God cursed the woman shortly aftrer eating from the tree of knowledge of good and evil?

    The promise God made to Abraham was in TWO parts. One was to do with INHERITANCE of the Land of Canaan and the other was to do with the salvation BLESSING for the whole of mankind on planet Earth. In the first part Abraham's seed will inherit the land of Canaan, not the whole earth. (Gen 12:5-7). This was fulfilled when Moses freed the Hebrews from bondage in Egypt and settled them in the Land of Canaan. I believe you are confusing the whole earth with the second part of the promise which stipulates it is through Abraham's seed that the WHOLE EARTH will be BLESSED (Gen 12:3). This part of the promise was fulfilled by Jesus' RANSOM sacrifice which re-opened the door to what Adam lost by giving mankind the opportunity to restore themselves in with God.
