Adventist Adventurer Claimed to Have Found Ark of the Covenant Beneath Crucifixion Site

(Read the article on one page)

One of the greatest mysteries for believers of the Judeo-Christian religions is the present location of the Ark of the Covenant, a chest that is said to contain the two stone tablets of the original Ten Commandments. There are many theories as to its whereabouts but nobody can know for certain because legend says a mere human cannot look on such a holy artifact without suffering tremendous consequences (though perhaps not so severe as those portrayed in Raiders of the Lost Ark ). However, one man claims to have not only found the Ark of the Covenant but to have seen it with his own eyes. Ron Wyatt says he found the Ten Commandments on January 6, 1982, an event he believes was foretold by prophecy.

Possible Locations of the Ark

The Bible says that the Commandments were preserved by the Israelites in a wooden chest covered with gold, the Ark of the Covenant. The chest may also contain the rod of Aaron (which famously turned into a snake before the Pharaoh’s eyes) and a pot of manna (believed to be food provided by heaven for the Israelites to survive on while wandering around in the desert).

One of the strongest claims to possessing the Ark is made by the Ethiopian Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion, which maintains that the Ark was carried to Axum by the son of the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon for protection. Many other churches put forward claims as well. Possible locations of the Ark include Jordan, Egypt, Israel, South Africa, France, Italy, Ireland, and the United States.

Ron Wyatt, an amateur researcher, adventurer, and Seventh Day Adventist, believes he found the Ark buried under the remains of the old city of Jerusalem. Indeed, his version says that the Ark of the Covenant was situated exactly beneath the spot where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified.

Hidden in an Underground Chamber

Since escaping Egypt and settling in the promised land, the Ark was kept in the Holy Temple, also known as Solomon’s Temple. 600 years before Jesus’ death, the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar invaded and destroyed much of Jerusalem, including the Temple. It is at this moment in time that the Ark becomes lost to history. When the Babylonians began their attack, they built a huge Siege Wall around the city so that nobody could get in or out. In response, the Israelites built many tunnels so that they could move about the city without causing alarm. Many of these tunnels still exist today and ancient artifacts have been found in some before. Wyatt argues that the Ark of the Covenant, the most sacred Jewish artifact, was hidden in an underground chamber, which was then sealed and forgotten.

Prophecy – Commandments to be Revealed

In 1901, a woman by the name of Ellen G. White made the following prophecy:

“And He [Christ] gave unto Moses, when He had made an end of communing with him upon Mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God. Nothing written on those tables could be blotted out. The precious record of the law was placed in the ark of the testament and is still there, safely hidden from the human family. But in God’s appointed time He will bring forth these tables of† stone to be a testimony to all the world against the disregard of His commandments and against the idolatrous worship of a counterfeit Sabbath.”  (White quoted in Covenant Keepers, 2016).

Students of the Bible, such as Mr. Wyatt, believe that “the Lord God does nothing, without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Ms. White’s prophecy, made 81 years before Wyatt’s discovery in 1982, was thus believed by Wyatt to be the foretelling of the miraculous unearthing of the Ark.

Wyatt’s Excavations

Comments

Ron Wyatt claimed he found Noah's ark below Ararat.T his has been identified as a rock formation by me and geologist John Morris.

As for the Ark of the Covenant, it was removed by God from the temple in Jerusalem when Jesus was crucified and the veil was torn in two revealing the Holy of Holies. It is now in heaven with Jesus. This ark represents Jesus.

The Jews created a fake ark to replace the missing one, representing the Antichrist. This fake ark was hidden by the Knights Templars with the Grail Treasures to be used to fool people into believing the Antichrist is a descendant and reincarnation of Jesus. It will confirm that Jesus and Antichrist have AB Negative blood type from the French royal Merovingian lineage of the Illuminati. The blood on the Shroud of Turin is AB Negative, and it is the blood of the founder of the Knights Templars Jaques de Molay.

The Ark of the Covenant disappeared during the 2-year Babylonian siege of Jerusalem in 532 BC. Nobody and NO THING got in or out of the city. Everyone was starved to the point where some at their own babies. There was no way that the Ark ever got out of the city, so it had to have been hidden there to prevent Nebuchadnezzar from obtaining it. If he had it would have been paraded around and made a great deal over. Jeremiah lists all that was taken to the "isles" and the Ark was not among those things. Record would have stated if it had been. The Ark was NEVER seen after. The comment that it was taken by God at Jesus crucifixion is PROOF of the ignorance and malfeasance of this lying SPEW. Do not believe a SINGLE WORD that they say. They are an absolute LIAR. One that needs to be busted in the face for their ignorance and misrepresentation.

The site of the crucifixion is apocryphal.

...is reality.

A mysterious ancient tomb with “unusual and rare” wall paintings has been discovered in Egypt. Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Enany told BBC reporters the discovery of a 4,400-year-old tomb found during excavation work in Giza’s western cemetery “likely belonged to Hetpet, a priestess to Hathor, the goddess of fertility, who assisted women in childbirth.”

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
