The Ark of the Covenant, the tablets that God’s finger wrote the law, or ten
commandments upon, has been the research of many a poor boy. There are 12 replicas
and the Ark depending on who you listen to is anywhere from japan, ethiopia Nova
Scotia, the American south west, England Wales and any european country along
the way, china, and even New Zealand….So where is the Ark?? Is there really
an ark? and if So, why would the roman Catholic church stop the world from
Last week’s article:
The patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia says he will announce to the world Friday the unveiling of the Ark of the Covenant, perhaps the world’s most prized archaeological and spiritual artifact, which he says has been hidden away in a church in his country for millennia, according to the Italian news agency Adnkronos.
Abuna Pauolos, in Italy for a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI this week, told the news agency, “Soon the world will be able to admire the Ark of the Covenant described in the Bible as the container of the tablets of the law that God delivered to Moses and the center of searches and studies for centuries.”
The announcement is expected to be made at 2 p.m. Italian time from the Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome. Pauolos will reportedly be accompanied by Prince Aklile Berhan Makonnen Haile Sellassie and Duke Amedeo D’Acosta.

“The Ark of the Covenant is in Ethiopia for many centuries,” said Pauolos. “As a patriarch I have seen it with my own eyes and only few highly qualified persons could do the same, until now.”

According to Pauolos, the actual Ark has been kept in one church, but to defend the treasure, a copy was placed in every single church in Ethiopia.
He said a museum is being built in Axum, Ethiopia, where the Ark will be displayed. A foundation of D’Acosta will fund the project.
The Ark of the Covenant is the sacred container of the Ten Commandments as well as Aaron’s rod and a sample of manna, the mysterious food that kept the Israelites alive while wandering in the wilderness during their journey to the promised land.
The Bible says the Ark was built to the specifications of God as He spoke to Moses. It was carried in advance of the people and their army by priests. It was also carried in a seven-day procession around the walled city of Jericho.

The idea that the Ark is presently in Ethiopia is a well-documented, albeit disputed, tradition dating back to at least 642 B.C. The tradition says it was moved to Elephantine Island in Egypt, then to Tana Kirkos Island in Ethiopia and finally to its present site at St. Mary’s of Zion Church in Axum.
Ethiopians believe it is destined to be delivered to the Messiah when He reigns on Mount Zion – the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Jeremiah 3:16 points to a time when the Ark will vanish not only physically, but from the minds of the people: “And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.”
The Book of Revelation says the Ark is in the temple of God in heaven (Rev. 11:19). Muslim scholars say it will be found near the end of times by the Mahdi – a messianic figure in Islam.
with Pope Benedict XVI this week, said, “Soon the world will be able to admire the Ark of the Covenant described in the Bible as the container of the tablets of the law that God delivered to Moses and the center of searches and studies for centuries.”
He had suggested the possibility the artifact might be viewable in a planned museum.
“I repeat (the Ark of the Covenant) is in Ethiopia and nobody … knows for how much time. Only God knows,” he said in the Andkronos report available online.
The report said Pauolos reported the artifact “is described perfectly in the Bible” and is in good condition.
“The state of conservation is good because it is not made from man’s hand, but is something that God has made,” Pauolos said, according to the report.
The agency had reported an announcement would be made at the Hotel Aldrovandi in Rome, and a hotel spokeswoman told WND Pauolos had been in residence there, but no news conference or event was scheduled.
“The Ark of the Covenant is in Ethiopia for many centuries,” said Pauolos in the report. “As a patriarch I have seen it with my own eyes and only few highly qualified persons could do the same, until now.”
Bob Cornuke, biblical investigator, international explorer and best-selling author, has participated in more than 27 expeditions around the world searching for lost locations described in the Bible. A man some consider a real-life Indiana Jones, he has written a book titled “Relic Quest” about the Ark of the Covenant and participated in History Channel production called “Digging for Truth.”
Next week, Cornuke will travel to Ethiopia for the 13th time since he began his search for the Ark. He told WND he believes it is possible Ethiopia could have the real artifact.
“They either have the Ark of the Covenant or they have a replica that they have believed to be the Ark of the Covenant for 2,000 years,” he said.
Cornuke said, if it is genuine, there’s a plausible explanation of how the Ark may have come to the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Ethiopia.
“The Ark could have been taken out of the temple during the time of the atrocities of Manasseh,” he said. “We have kind of a bread crumb trail that appears to go to Egypt, and it stayed on an island there for a couple hundred years called Elephantine Island. The Ark then was transferred over to Lake Tana in Ethiopia where it stayed on Tana Qirqos Island for 800 years. Then it was taken to Axum, where it is enshrined in a temple today where they don’t let anybody see it.” World Net Daily
Ron Wyatt researched quite a bit, He was certain he had found the ark of the covenant. Seems to me, he did find something, what exactly we aren’t sure, however, he claimed that it was radioactive and emitted radiation and that anyone that came near it would suffer radiation poisoning. Soon after his research report, Ron died of a mysterious cancer linked to radiation poisoning. His death certainly adds a bit of authenticity to his claim which was well documented as being highly credible – at least in some circles.
The newest research suggests that the ‘ark of the covenant’ is actually more than one piece, and that the ‘ark’ described in the Bible, is actually one of the compoments in a complex planetary wide system. What exactly that system can do and is for? The research has many theories; none of which really explain much. The ‘ark’ in ethopia is actually another reproduction, and has little actual bearing to any of the ‘real’ arks. (BTW Japan claims to have an Ark also and performs a ritual similar to the church at ethopia – neither church moves their phony arks on atonement day -the only day you are supposed to move the ark)
What is a real ark? whatever Ron Wyatt found, has something to do with (one of) the real arks. I think an ark is much like a crystal skull, very very rare in actual ancient form, and generally used for some ancient purpose we don’t understand yet. A theory suggests that the ark of the covenant is actually a misnomer, a metaphor. Much of the research says that ‘Noah’ built the first ark. And that the ark of the covenant and Noah’s Ark are one in the same…how? – Let’s explain something first…what is Noah?
Noah isn’t a single person, in ancient times, many peoples were named after their leaders, or had a common name; Noah or No’h wasn’t a person at all, but an entire civilization – like Atlantis or Rome. So when the Bible says ‘Noah built an ark” and continues with the myth of placing all the animals on a single ‘boat’ it’s totally metaphorical. What’s most interesting is that the newest research suggests that arks are real, and there are 5 of them, and they are clearly visable from space to this day. The research says, that at the center of each continent there is a 120 degree arc on a raised plataeu. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64oOtXitw4A shows clearly where these arcs are.
So now you should be really confused, but it does make some innate sense – some researchers believe Noah’s ark and the ark of the covenant were related to each other. The coincidence was too great and too obvious for something not to be there. But it wasn’t until this newest research cropped up that some solid evidence on ancient arc technology that a pairing of the data could be finally made. (interestingly enough – to this day a group of Japanese called ‘Noh’ or ‘Onoh do a ceremony to Buddha every year and have been doing this ceremony for over 1000 years)
Now – the ark Ron Wyatt found was probably the ark of Moses, the last real ark to be built. While much isn’t known about the ark, a couple things are known, one being that it made anyone that came near it, very sick until death. Ron Wyatt died actually in the matter the bible stated if in contact with the ark. Ron’s death and reason for death are confirmed facts, and it’s nothing you can die from very easily unless you worked at a radiation facility (nuclear plant – nuclear medical facility). But if Ron is right, the research also says, more than one ark was built. The one in Ethopia and Japan are copies of real arks, but which real ark, and when? The ark of Solomon and David are probably in the Americas, and that like Noah, Solomon and David weren’t just kings; but an entire peoples/civilization. And that Solomon and David were trying to restore the glory of earth before the time of the Noah by rebuilding these ark plataues. A certain theory states that the ark of the convenant may not be one thing, but part of a complex system, with the ‘mercy seat’ as the ark is technically called, being the centerpiece that is most tangible and observable to viewers, even if they die a few months upon viewing
The Mercy Seat, is probably like Ron described, but it IS NOT THE ARK!…it is merely PART of the ark, the centerpiece yes, but worthless without the whole ‘temple’ complex being online also. The real ark, is the mercy seat probably in the basement of a pyramid, with music going on outside the pyramid, this combination is probably how the whole thing worked. The beating of drums caused ultra low frequency responses, you would sit in the mercy seat, and be able to ‘see the world or the solar system’ as if you were floating in space and time…because you probably were able to with this set up. While this feature was a part of the system, priests in later centuries were more concerned with the ‘talking to the dead’ ability. Which would also give them prophecy. The research at Maes’ Howe believes this scenerio is highly likely…
Much research on the Ark in Ethopia, revealed the Templars left messages as to where the real ark is as well as wrote the kirkwall scroll, which is an account of a voyage that Sinclair (st. Clair) took before Columbus arrived (It also explains Oak Island, Nova Scotia, artifacts – Eco Umberto’s research says a templar ship landed there before Columbus).
the Knights Templar might have figured something out; The Kirkwall Scroll
(The scroll is
a panel map…and already laid out..you are supposed to fold it a special way and the map is revealed.-has anyone figured this simple templar trick out? I’m sure they have but aren’t telling!)
seems to be a map of a voyage in which the end lies in a great valley of some sort where pyramids numbering in the dozens are nestled, encompassing a small pyramid where the ark is supposed to rest. The funny thing about the Kirkwall scroll is that it resembles an existing yet barely known pyramid complex in Peru called muribecca (http://www.rickrichards.com/ac/ac_2.htm) and neighboring ancient cities like this one…http://www.cyberspaceorbit.com/Ugha.html
I highly suspect that the pyramid shapes in the Kirkwall scroll are in fact, pyramids (not mountains as the so called experts claim) and the only place such pyramid complexes exist is in the new world. (the mexican city of teotihuacan for example). (Giza is not a completed complex as David never finished his ‘temple’)
Upon investigation of the sites in Peru, there is at least one giant egyptian artifact, which was recently mutilated to prevent proper identification. an exclusive photograph of this research site in Peru “El Dorado – the Stone Man – The Door’ – (Doorway of the Amuru) before it was defaced…and one could clearly see the egyptian headress and face at the one end of the fallen statue.
unfortunately today – you can’t see the original ‘statue’ that was there, but that used to be an EGYPTIAN statue!…And as recently as 7 years ago, the Bolivian government destroyed the entire facial area of it making it unrecognizable. So as far as being able to ‘prove’ it is Egyptian, isn’t the easiest; however the artwork on the main wall, is very similar to the egyptian glyphs you find scattered over egypt…The authorities destroyed the face much like napolean destroyed the face
of the sphinx….maybe it revealed the same thing…..
you can barely make out an image of a person, very similar to how an egyptian would
have painted it. gives a basic idea of what this wall may have looked like a little bit at one time…
Today, due to erosion and human defacing; little of this evidence can be easily found on the surface anymore.
shows some interesting evidence regarding elogated skulls in egypt and peru.
Despite the tale of time, their is still more than enough evidence in that area to suggest egyptian culture and contact had been established…There is a lot of evidence to suggest that the pre incan cultures had intimate contact with the north/western african kingdoms of times from 3500 BC- 800/300BC?. Another clue comes from Tut’s DNA sample which says that the boy king had traces of cocaine in his system; something that could only be obtained from a trade route to the peruvian areas. No other place grew coca in ancient times nor was it possible to grow anywhere else, and to this day South America is still just about the only place you can grow good steady crops of coca Pharoahs were found with Cocain in their systems
an american crop, also they were embalmed with tobacco products and leaves from
It seems highly possible that around 1400 BCE that the Olmec were the first major drug runners, taking preIncan (Nazca/Amuru?) cultivated coca processing it some, then trading the product to all corners of the earth using their control of the easiest passage between pacific and atlantic oceans. Some theories also suggest that the transferring of empiralship from the Xia empirial line to the Shang caused a massive exodus out of chinese lands and in fact the ancient name of the amazon (which was never its name – confused explorers called it that) jungle was the ‘Xian empire’. (hardly a coincidence). It could be that there was a much more vast and complex trading system after the Xia empire fell in china, and was recreated in South America. All olmec head statues seem to have similar Asian eye features standing out and exaggerated to make sure no one confused them with someone else’s ancestory.
This of course is only one of the central investigative theories.
There is evidence of something very strange at Rock Lake Wisconsin, a pyramid complex underwater.
This helps provide more evidence that Solomon and David came to the New World.
It maybe even possible that inside these pyramids lies tombs of great biblical kings.
The way the records research indicates; Solomon and David were entire civilizations in themselves, not just individual kings. Exactly who begot who isn’t precisely clear either, but it is known around the time lines as to where they were in time; around 960 BCE and David at around 1000 BCE overlapping into 960 BCE..but there are some that say that the reverse is correct. Moses came much earlier around 1391; so we assume he built the first ark, and David copied from that and Solomon from that at least to get a framework of how it might have worked. Arks and pyramids seem to me to be tied together; and if anything can be gathered from the Kirkwall Scroll is that fact.
Some theories suggest that the Ark of the Covenant is not an actual ‘object’ but part of an entire ‘solar complex’, with it being a type of natual culliminator. Why would anyone need such a complex?…Well some theories suggest that by use of coatings to a mirror like finish (electrum coatings of pyramids are known as fact) and the use of optics you can make the necropolis of giza ‘vanish’ into thin air. When Moses left Egypt, he took the electrum plates off the pyramids and other buildings, to prevent the ‘temple’ from ever working again.
DOORWAY TO THE UNIVERSE:
Interestingly enough, at the doorway of the Amuru – their are two giant pole rests…and an offering stand of some sort.
the original doorway face has been professionally chipped off so that has nothing on it anymore.
All the sites in peru have been seriously defaced over the years. Macchu Picchu is nothing like it used to be…thousands of stones have been secretely hauled away by tourists and looters alike. The Amuru doorway was one of the the only sites was last nearly intact and preserved. Next to it is the ‘stone museum’, of which so many stones have been removed, so it’s harder and harder now to tell what was really there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mzy57wuIggs
http://www.karinya.com/door1.htm shows a much older picture of the ‘doorway’..in this picture you can see the statue shape a bit better..the right shoulder sits above the door…the face is already deconstructed by this time.
Another part of the theory suggests that the Ark is merely a golden box as indicated, and that’s not really what makes it special, but the solar complex surrounding it.
That inside the box are actually a set of jewels which can polarize energy fields. This means that the Ark is more a set of plans, than an actual object; the objective is the Ark then in all pyramid complexes. Why is the ark needed to begin with, and where did these ideas to make one actually come from? Why was Moses asked to build one?
The ark could mean this: a set of plans which requires a large temple complex of pyramids which are coated with electrum to generate an energy field which a golden box uses to produce a much larger electromagnetic field that can do amazing things. The only reason I see anyone spending all that time and resource into making an Ark, is if they had a very good reason to. So why exactly was it built?
In the late 1990s, author Richard Andrews, who had worked in his youth as a furniture builder, constructed a replica of the Ark, following the precise instructions given in the Bible. He and others have a theory that explained how Aaron’s sons might have been struck dead by merely touching the Ark. The object’s design, they note, essentially made it a giant capacitor, capable of storing electrical energy. “Gold is one of the best conductors of electricity there is, while wood is one of the best insulators,” Andrews wrote in a 1999 article for the Daily Mail, a British newspaper. “If the Israelites had set out to construct a primitive accumulator, they could hardly have picked a better design than the Ark.” Subsequent tests of Andrews’ model at a college laboratory confirmed that his Ark could accumulate and release an electrical charge.
The Ark was portable, and before being stored in the Holy of Holies, it was carried around the dry, hot desert environment of Israel. Andrews theorizes that the friction of the heated air against the Ark allowed it to accumulate static electricity, much in the same way that a car can do so on a hot day. “The strength of the charge would depend on variables such as humidity and temperature, but also length, speed and bumpiness of journey,” he wrote. “There is no reason why the charge could not be lethal.”
The Prophecy Wall
This stone artifact was once part of a large wall inscribed with the story of the buried Ark and the Queen’s son, Menelik. It is only a fragment and was subsequently used as part of another building. Other parts of this “prophecy wall” have been discovered but not yet translated. This stone is on display in the Yemen museum upside-down and has been rotated in this photograph to aid in translation.
The translation above was made by using the original “first tongue” symbols and phonetic sounds. This method proved successful in many ancient texts from around 900 BC, but differs from the traditional set of symbols commonly attributed to Southern Arabic himyaritic scripts in many ways.
As an experiment, we attempt the translation again using the phonetic sounds attributed to Southern Arabic but continuing to use the proto-Canaanite dictionary of “first tongue.” To our surprise we see a similar story being told.
Most significant is the vertical line, which in Southern Arabic script denotes a word break or space and has no sound value.
In “first tongue” this is interpreted as a lamed, or L. Consequently, the “first tongue” gimmel symbol, resembling a crooked number seven, is considered the lamed in Southern Arabic.
Other differences are with combined letters, such as the BN and BL which, in “first tongue” are translated as ligatures. In Southern Arabic the BN represents the sound value of “Z” or “Ts” while the BL represents a silent throat sound “s”. The BN has been given the Tsadeh/Zayen sound and the BL continues to be silent in this experiment.
If we apply the Southern Arabic method and translate the above artifact using a Hebrew dialect we arrive at the following text:
The script, line by line, has been transposed to left to right for easier understanding. Following Southern Arabic phonetics, we have changed the lameds to word spaces, the [BN] to Z (zayen or tsadeh sound), the chet same as kaf, the gimmels to lameds, the [BL] to silent vowels).
