Following up on a post i saw in the forum 'Mt. Ararat Anomally' what is your opinion on the The Lost Ark of the Covenant? Does it still exist? if so where is it now?

Also, we all know that it was used to carry the Ten Commandments. But what of the secret powers it supposedly posessed? Was it really a powerful weapon?

Please discuss.

This is not entirely true.

It was the Tables of Testimony that were put in the Ark not the commandments.

Wow, I'm a pastor and I have no idea what you're talking about.  Please enlighten me on the Lost Ark of the Covenant.  If it's another way of saying Noah's ark, I have some interesting info to post, if it's something else, please let me know!

I apologise, and stand corrected. I don't know much about the Ark at all.
Yet i'm very curious as to see what people think of it's existence.
I should have added to the poll No, it never existed.

Saucy, are you serious, you've never heard of the Lost Ark of the Covenant?

Have you never seen Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark man? original.gif

not i'm not serious.  Four more posts and I make four hundred!  laugh.gif

No really, I've never heard of it and I think the Indiana Jones movies suck so I've never really watched them.  I saw one and lost interest very early in it, so I didn't pay attention.

Yes it is something else, it was a great battle feild weapon during Biblical times.

Many an unaware were killed around it, for simply touching it.

Yes it does exist, its locked in the basement of the Vatican, or the Knight Templars may know where it is. Solomon made a fake replica, which tends to fog the scene when trying to discern its location through ancient texts.

Where ever it was used it seemed to have the characteristics of some type of energy creater, it had electrical and what appears to be radioactive properties.
1Samuel (5:9-10) shows the effects of such radiation!

Wow.
I've heard stories about it being used in battle and sending bolts of electricity through 'gods enemies' or indeed anyone who tries to touch it.
But what are it's origins? Why does it have such mystical power?

  • I'll write something pithy here later, for now just use it to advertise your band.

I think it hasn't been found yet. I believe it most likely would have been taken by Marcus Crassus when he looted the Great Temple in Jerusalem on his way to Death and on-stage debut at the hands of the Parthians. Neither Crassus or the Parthian king would have attached much importance to the Ark, so if it didn't get melted down for gold it's most likely hiding in Central Asia somewhere..
On a side note I read somewhere that the Ark might have contained Josephs' Mummy also..

go rent indiana jones and the lost ark and watch it
you might learn a few things

i think its yet to be discovered, and if it had it would be in protected by a cult or some kind of group that are lord's protectors, or something along that lines.

that's my theory  dontgetit.gif

like the knights Templar.

I can't remember exactly what they had to do with it but as Chauncy said it's been theorized that it's in their posession.

Yes the Templars wanted it, they searched for it, found it, whether it was the real Ark or Solomons fake who knows?

The Ark of the covenant is in a small city called Axum in Ethiopia. It was transported there at the time of Solomon when the Queen of Sheba ruled Ethiopia.
Check out this book here, it contains some of the most extensive work on the Ark of the covenant.
