Where Is the Ark of the Covenant (Ark of the Testimony)?


For those who do not know what the Ark of the Covenant, also known as the Ark of the Testimony, and the Ark of God is. Basically, it was a box made of shittim wood, some 75 cm wide, 1.25 meters long, and it's said that it's not known exactly how high it was. It was covered with pure gold. The remaining details of what the Ark looked like are found in the Christian Bible in Exodus 25:10.

Why Is the Ark of the Testimony So Coveted?

According to the scriptures of the Word of God, the Ark of the Covenant housed the testimony. And, according to many investigators, psychics, mediums, and archeologists, the Ark of the Testimony housed God Himself. After all, Jehovah said to Moses, before he finished the construction of the Ark, "And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel" (Exodus 25:22). If God met with Moses from the Ark of the Covenant, and indeed He did, we see why those who do not know God believe that the Ark of the Covenant that Moses made was like the arks that the pagans made to house their gods, and to meet with them.

In addition to "housing" the God of Israel, we soon learn that the supernatural powers of the Ark became known. José Gregorio González, the author of the book, Enigmas del Cristianismo (The Enigmas of Christianity), wrote in his work:

"The powers of the box generally were manifested spontaneously, proving to be deadly to those who were around it. When king David attempted to take the Ark to Jerusalem, history repeated itself. This time the victim was Uzzah, the son of Abinadab, who, along with his brother, Ahio, were transporting the sacred object in some type of a wagon: 'As they reached the land of Nachon, Uzzah reached out and steadied the Ark of God, because the oxen stumbled. Then was the anger of God kindled against Uzzah, and right there, God smote him for having dared to touch the Ark, and he fell dead by the Ark.'" (English translation of the original Spanish).

The author's words, "the powers of the object" do not "fit" with the subject of the supposed supernatural powers of the Ark of the Covenant though they appear to fit. The author himself said what the Bible said which is, "And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah. And God smote him there for his error. And there he died by the ark of God" (2 Samuel 6:7).

It was NOT the ark that killed Uzzah, it was the Lord who smote him. Here is where the huge difference lies. The object itself possessed no mystical powers. It is the Spirit of God who joined Himself to the Ark. The Ark of the Testimony did not "house" God, who teaches us that He is too big to live in a temple, let alone inside of a box! We read, "Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool. What house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Hath not my hand made all these things?" (Acts 7:49-50).

Obviously, man cannot house God neither in temples neither in boxes. However, those who are searching for the Ark of God perhaps believe that if they find it, they will be able to use it to their advantage? Did the Ark of the Testimony truly exist? If we take into consideration the amazing facts of the Bible, in other words, its infallible teachings on scientific principles and its prophecies that have been fulfilled to the letter, why would we say that the Ark of the Covenant did not exist? So then, where is it? Does the Bible offer any clue to the whereabouts of the Ark of God?

The New Covenant

When we say Ark of the Covenant, it is the same thing as saying the Ark of the Pact, because a covenant is a pact. Under the Old Testament, the Lord established a pact or covenant with his people. The Bible tells us that he annulled the old pact, and established a NEW one under the NEW Testament. When he established the new one, he took away the old one. The book of Hebrews tells us about the establishment of the new pact. And, it mentions the fact that before God ended the old covenant, he informed his people of the changes, significance, and superiority of the new covenant.

We read, "...Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a NEW COVENANT with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: NOT according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt.... For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord. I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts..." (Hebrews 8:8-10).

Remember that the Ark of the Covenant of the Old Testament housed the tablets of the Law of God (the Testimony). Under the new covenant (New Testament), the "tablets" are the hearts of men, women, and children upon which is written the Law of Christ. And, the temple in which the Holy Spirit dwells is the body, mind, and spirit of those who walk in obedience to the Son of God, one of the three persons of the Godhead known as the Trinity, the God of Israel. Do we still need to have the Ark of the Testimony from the Old Testament given that we live under a new and better testament?

Could it be that God took the Ark of the Covenant away when his Son, by whom he established a new pact, was born? Jesus said, "...Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second" (Hebrews 10:9). If the Lord took the Ark of the Testimony away, where did he place it? Is it in heaven? Is this why no one can find it? The scripture of Revelation 11:19 says, "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ARK OF HIS TESTAMENT. And there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail".
