The Ark of the Covenant disappeared off of the pages of history by the time of the Babylonian Captivity. Nothing in the Bible is said about the Ark in the Old Testament after the return from Babylon. Thus, the Holy of Holies in the Second Temple was an empty chamber, without the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark was so important in Israel from the time of Moses through the Judges and the First Temple era, that it seems remarkable that nothing is said of it in the Bible after the Babylonian Captivity, until the Letter to the Hebrews and the Book of Revelation in the New Testament. In Hebrews it is described as it was in the original Tabernacle made by Moses; and in Revelation, the Ark is seen by John in heaven. In neither case is the Ark mentioned as something that remains on the earth now.
There persists a legend that the Ark does exist on earth, but is hidden. A view that has predominated in rabbinic circles is that the Ark was hidden in a cave beneath the Temple Mount in the very heart of Israel. The theory goes that the priests hid the Ark beneath the Temple Mount, perhaps as early as during the time of King Josiah, since the coming prophesied invasion by the Babylonians was only a matter of time. By hiding the Ark and other Temple treasures, the priests felt that the priceless sacred articles could be protected from desecration by the pagan invaders. (Source)
END TIMES TRUTH
Temple Mount in Jerusalem
The Ark of the Covenant is no longer on earth. Seraiah, the Second-in-Command to Archangel Michael, took the Ark of the Covenant from beneath the Temple Mount at Jerusalem in Israel and delivered it to Mount Zion, just as it was moved to Yahweh’s inner Sanctuay in olden times on earth, and now in the recent past.
1 Kings 6:19 “He prepared the inner sanctuary inside the temple to put the ark of the LORD’s covenant there.”
Can you see the Ark of the LORD’s covenant in the Sanctuary? Wrapped in the 8 of infinity. Drenched in the Sacred blood of Christ Jesus who paid the Ransom Sacrifice.
But it is returning minus the mercy seat and it is bearing the LAWS of YAHWEH.
Deuteronomy 31:26 “Take this book of the law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, so that it may remain there as a witness against you.“
The Mercy Seat represents the mercy of Yahweh sparing His wrath because of the Ransom Sacrifice by Christ Jesus that typified the sacrifices offered under the Law of Moses. It is without the mercy seat because of Yahweh’s Covenant with Christ Jesus whom is settled into his kingship under Mother Israel, to establish His Righteous Kingdom on earth by crushing all those who oppose to His Reign. Yahweh is a God of LAWS. The Ark will be present for the WRATH to be administered because the evil people of this planet and those rebels in the spirt realm remain under LAW.
Revelation 11:19 “God’s sanctuary in heaven was opened, and the ark of His covenant appeared in His sanctuary. There were lightnings, rumblings, thunders, an earthquake, and severe hail.”
That first portion of the prophecy has now been fulfilled. The Sanctuary is now opened up to permit entrance of the sheep at the on-going first Rapture as Yahweh opens Mount Zion – the Sanctuary to receive those safely aboard the Rapture Vessel.
The second portion refers to the Bowls of Anger and the Great Earthquake that follows for the cup of Wrath to be administered at the time of Armageddon. All of the above involving the Wrath occurs after her Children are out of harms way. As with Lot, Father can do nothing to destroy those on this planet in final Judgment until those of Her flock are taken to safety. This judgment leaves no one standing but those that met out Her anger.
Revelation 19:11-21 “The Rider on a White Horse” It is no accident that these two Scriptural quotes have the same numbers in the Scriptures – but rearranged: 11:19-21 * 19:11-21.
How does the Ark of the LORD’s Covenant correspond to the Ark Noah and his family found REFUGE and MERCY within?
Genesis 6:18 “But I will establish My covenant with you, and you will enter the ark with your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives.“ A Covenant, an Ark. Offering Safety and the possibility of Salvation for eternal life.
1 Chronicles 17:1 “[ The LORD's Covenant with David ] When David had settled into his palace, he said to Nathan the prophet, “Look! I am living in a cedar house while the ark of the LORD’s covenant is under tent curtains.”
The curtain was for a reason, It is the VEIL, which will be lifted away and all eyes shall see! Heaven opened to reveal that two realms will become visible to one another; at that time the veil of separation will be lifted. Christ is faithful and true to his Father; he is righteous in that he judges mankind – some to life, some to death; those he judges to eternal death he makes war with.
When Did Yahweh Seal the Ark’s Door?
Some people debate when Noah, his family and the prescribed animals entered the Ark. Some believe it was prior to the 7 days before the Great Deluge came, with Yahweh sealing shut the door to Salvation; in effect, sealing off Salvation to the rest of Mankind. Others believe that Noah, his family, and the animals did not enter the Ark until that of the 7th day. It is important to understand which way it really was, because it reflects the door of salvation in our day and time. If Yahweh sealed it 7 days prior to the Flood, then the door of Salvation closes early; but if He sealed it on the 7th day, then that would mean the door remained open to those up to the last few hours of their lives.
