GreenbergIndiana Jones went looking for the lost Ark of the Covenant in Egypt.

But for millenia, the Orthodox Church of Ethiopia has laid claim to official ownership.This is, obviously, a point of debate.

No one outside the Ethiopian Orthodox Church has ever what the church claims are the remnants of the holy ark that carried within it the tablets God delivered to Moses at Sinai.But the argument follows:According to the First Book of Kings, King Solomon built the First Temple in Jerusalem to house the ark.

It was venerated there during Solomon's reign (c.

970-930 B.C.) and beyond.Then it vanished.

Much of Jewish tradition holds that it disappeared before or while the Babylonians sacked the temple in Jerusalem in 586 B.C.But through the centuries, Ethiopian Christians have claimed that the ark rests in a chapel in the small town of Aksum, in their country's northern highlands.

It arrived nearly 3,000 years ago, they say, and has been guarded by a succession of virgin monks who, once anointed, are forbidden to set foot outside the chapel grounds until they die.Now, I'm having trouble reading this article translated from Italian to English, but sounds like the Ethiopian Orthodox Patriarch is going to reveal on Friday, in some way, the secret that his country has kept for 2,700 years.And this has the New Wineskins blogger a bit giddy.

Because, obviously, this means Jesus is coming home:The wood has likely deteriorated.

The Ark’s function of holding the tablets of the Mosaic Law was no longer necessary after Jesus came to fulfill the law.

The Mercy Seat however, (made of gold) has remained and is central to the coming Millennial Kingdom — the fulfillment of the irrevocable Davidic covenant which God made with David (in Psalm 89 among other places) that his progeny (Jesus) will reign physically on the earth for a thousand years… shortly after his return and triumph at Armageddon, that is.

(Kinda funny that my Bible just happened to flop open to Psalm 89 last night when God told me (rather clearly) to pick it up and I responded, ‘what should I read?’)I refuse to believe that the timing of this news is random on the part of the Ethiopian religious authorities.

If they’d wanted to corner the market in kitch and gawker-tourism they would have done so a long time ago.

Why spend 2700 years caring for the Ark only to release news of it at a random time? It makes no sense… unless they received instructions from on high.

The fact that the Pope is taking this seriously (further cementing ties between the Catholic and Orthodox churches) makes it doubly interesting.The fact that it is being revealed now means… Jesus is coming back soon.

Very soon.I'm not so certain.

I mean, the Rapture Index isn't even currently at its high for 2009.

As for the Ark still being in Ethiopia, I'm skeptical about that too.Thanks for the link, Mollie.19 Comments — Leave your commentShare this post: Digg Facebook Google Reddit StumbleUpon Technorati YahooMyWeb COMMENTSWe welcome your feedback.Privacy PolicyYour information will not be shared or sold without your consent.

Get all the details.Every Body must know that even before all country Ethiopians knows Christianity from Matthew you can go to India and see in catholic church they clearly wrote that.

the Christianity in Ethiopia is before birth of Jesus as well as after.

before they were following old testament from Jewish, now also they are following new Testament.

So according to the history were do you think that the arc of covenant rested? do you think that it is in USA, Egypt, or as some people say in Netherlands, or in Iraqi don't be fullish.

God didn't give his hand for delve.

believe me or not the holly land for God is Ethiopia.

Have you ever seen people who left there body and went to work for there soul in the whole world? you will get this only in Ethiopia.

By the way they dont oppose bible and say we are from God.

there is no any prist who is homo…....

i dont want to finish that word you finish it by your own language.

but Ethiopian do not have that language.

Let me come to the point arc of covenent came to Ethiopia as you said around 2500years ago.

There are so many questions that people ask, like Why it went there? HOw it come There? Why solomon didnt create a war after he lost his arc? and so on….

ya the is miracle and you can get the answer from the history that transfer orally from generation to generation.

may be you will ask your self why this person is saying like this i want to ask one thing and stop the case.

Do you rely think that Jesus, when he was in earth made only the miracle that is in the Bible???? answer for your self.

Mekuria on 6/24/09 at 5:09 pm Ethiopians have missed lots of what the vatican/Roman did when butchering the Bible in Nicea in 325 AD to suit their need.

Ethiopia sometimes reflects what the early christians were before the clampdown the Arian view.

The Ethiopian church was clear Monotheistic (one God) but now have been confused with all the adoption of Nicea and all that trinity.

One can still see the prayer styles, clothing all the way from early Christianity as passed as tradition.

Comment by jegule on 6/24/09 at 6:14 pm 1.Do you have any biblical evidense for Jesus physically reign for 1000 years in this world? ............

Comment by Elsaye on 6/24/09 at 10:29 pm The wood has likely deteriorated.

The Ark’s function of holding the tablets of the Mosaic Law was no longer necessary after Jesus came to fulfill the law.I have an answer for you.

In the New testament Jesus said I dont come to violet the old testament rather to strengthen.

Yes he fulfilled some of the unnecessry parts from the old testameent.

Thus, we are not exercising them, but the ones not supercided by Jesus.

Don't forget it is also stated in the Bible, " you Israeli arn't you like my Ethiopian Children?" So we are chosen pepole for God.

Comment by Abe kebe on 6/24/09 at 10:35 pm The person want to know that Jesus Christ will be a king for 1,000 years and will take the throne of David was located in Bible, Rev.


Another one is that the location of Zion already expressed in the book of Isaiah 18, beyond the Rivers of Ethiopia.

Comment by tesfaye on 6/24/09 at 11:21 pm Israel and its people is the land of God…I am deeply confused about all this.

The Arc of the Covenant is definitely something of the ancient world that has troubled our minds since its disappearance during the babylonian siege.

I feel the time isn't right, but I will ask god for guidance in these tough times.

Comment by zionist on 6/24/09 at 11:35 pm Brothers and sisters I would like to mentioned the word of GOD regarding the return of real Israelite and Zion from the Bible (Torah).

Please do not confuse just simple go to the bible and read what our GOD say about it.

The return of Israel not happened in our modern time but GOD will bring his people when God sit on throne of David for 1,000 years (Rev.


And also Zion will come from the place that is hiding beyond the Rivers of Ethiopia.

Therefore, the Ark existence in Ethiopia is not a simple talk it is a TRUE that is guarding by our GOD.From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering Zeph.

3:9.In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion Isaiah 18:7 Jeremiah 33:14-18 (How Israel returns in the future) Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.

In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.

In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.

For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.

Isaiah 11 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Ethiopia, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.Ezekiel 37:19 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they are gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: : 24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Comment by tesfaye on 6/25/09 at 12:45 am This is not news.

Claims of the ark being in ethiopia, including documentaries have been shown on national tv many many times Comment by whuebel on 6/25/09 at 9:28 am cautious skepticism is good, but i have to say that i have always liked the idea of the Ark hiding in plain sight in Ethiopia.

it's just the sort of thing that God would do.

Comment by Proton Soup on 6/25/09 at 11:43 am I believe that the “ark of the covenant” (Heb.9:4 below) and “the ark of his (God’s) testament” (Re.11:9 below) are one in the same, and contain the “tables of the covenant” (Heb.9:4 below), the Ten Commandments.I believe that the ark of the covenant/the ark of his testament is now in the temple of God in heaven (Re.11:19 below).At the Seventh TRUMPET (1 Thess.4:16-17), the temple of God is opened in heaven to reveal the ark of his testament (Re.11:19 below).

And, again, at the GIVING of the Seven Last PLAGUES (Re.15:1-8), “the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened” (Re.15:5 below), wherein is contained “the ark of his testament” (Re.11:19 below), “the ark of the covenant” (Heb.9:4 below).

Heb.9:4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein [was] the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;Re.11:19 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.Re.15:5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: Patricia (©) Bible Prophecy on the Web Comment by Patricia Burns on 6/25/09 at 2:02 pm Get ready.

Time to go home.

No need to pack.

See you all soon ! It is well !!! Comment by Kevin on 6/25/09 at 8:38 pm yeah, that's all we need, more Millerites.

i'll be diggin' my taters… Comment by Proton Soup on 6/25/09 at 8:51 pm - Three elements of this device have a special purpose: 1) "The Testimony" that Yahweh sent directly to Moses = walkie - talkie.

2)" The mercy cover" = loudspeaker.

3) The golden cherubim = antennas.

The operating system: "When Moses entered the Tent of Meeting to speak whith the Lord ( Yahweh ), he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the Testimony.

And he spoke with the Lord" ( Numbers 7: 89 ).

- Moses and the Spaceships of the Gods… Messiah - His Spaceships… Secrets of the Vatican - UFO's in the Ancient Art… Pope's star watcher to visit NASA and talk aliens… The Vatican is to go head to head with NASA over the possibility of life existing anywhere else in the Universe except Earth: Comment by Mike on 6/25/09 at 10:24 pm How the REAL Ark of the Covenant looked like:Exo 25:10 And they shall make an ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof.

Exo 25:11 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about.

Exo 25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it.

Exo 25:13 And thou shalt make staves of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold.

Exo 25:14 And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them.

Exo 25:15 The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall not be taken from it.

Exo 25:16 And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.

Exo 25:17 And thou shalt make a mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof.

Exo 25:18 And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold, of beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat.

Exo 25:19 And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: even of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof.

Exo 25:20 And the cherubims shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be.

(Probably the one to be unveiled will NOT look like Exodus 25:20.

But it might look like the FREEMASON one!! - Remember it will be "unveiled" - whatever this means - in ROME on the day the G-8 meeting starts in Italy!!)According to Prophet Jeremiah: Jer 3:16 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.Christ Jesus: Rom 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation ((also translated "mercy seat")) through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; The only reference in the New Testament is the following, but here the Ark is in HEAVEN (!!):Rev 11:19 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.

Comment by Martin on 6/26/09 at 3:08 am despised Orthodox Church head 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.Pauolos who was in Italy for a meeting with Pope Benedict XVI this week, told the news agency, “Soon the world will be able to admire and pay for 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 Aklile Berhan Makonnen Haile Sellassie and Duke Amedeo D’Acosta.'s_Liberation_Fronthe TPLF member Gebremedhin, along with Aba Gerima and other members of his entourage, had traveled to Israel on a working visit after his agents in Jerusalem promised him that he will be received well.

When the monks, priests and other members of the Ethiopian church in Jerusalem found out about his presence, they started shouting: “get out”.

Shaken by the opposition, Gebremedhin (aka Aba Diabilos) sneaked out as he sneaked in like a thief.

The gun-toting Gebremedhin was named “patriarch” in 1991 by the TPLF thugs only because he is a loyal servant to murderous tribal thugs from Tigrai.

He has no qualification and no moral standing to become a patriarch of the EOTC.

After he was named patriarch by the Woyanne regime, he built a huge palace for himself and his girlfriends in Addis Ababa while ancient Ethiopian churches fall apart due to neglect.'s_Liberation_FrontThe Tigrayan People's Liberation Front (TPLF), known more commonly in Ethiopia as Woyane or Weyane (Ge'ez: ሕዝባዊ ወያኔ áˆÂ"ርነት ትግራይ, Tigrinya: ḥizbāwÄ« weyānÄÂ" ḥārinet tigrāy, "Popular revolution (for) the freedom of Tigray") is a political party in Ethiopia.

At the last legislative elections, 15 May 2005, the party was the main part of the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front, that claimed winning 327 out of 527 seats.[1]In the August 2005 Regional assembly elections, the party claimed victory, winning all 152 seats in the Tigray Region.[2] Comment by Martin on 6/26/09 at 3:46 am Along with groups like the Eritrean People's Liberation Front, the TPLF fought against the authoritarian Derg regime of Mengistu Haile Mariam.

TPLF had close cooperation with Ethiopian People's Democratic Movement, and controlled large areas of Wollo and Gondar jointly.[4] From 1983, the core cadres of TPLF founded the Marxist-Leninist League of Tigray in the line of the Albanian Party of Labour.

They incorporated the name Woyane in the title of their organization as an intentional reference to the Woyane rebellion, a revolt in Tigray that arose and was crushed in 1943.[5]TPLF is led by a Central Committee and a politburo.

TPLF was divided in four regional organization, three in Tigray and the fourth those who reside outside of Tigray.

Each of the regions in Tigray had politburo members coordinating their activities.

The foreign committee supervised subdivisions in Sudan, Middle East, Europe and North America.[6]Following the success of the TPLF in 1991 in gaining control of Ethiopia, and the collapse of communist regime in Albania, the TPLF dropped all references to Marxism-Leninism.

The leadership of the TPLF claims that the MLLT dissolved when the TPLF-backed Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front took power after the collapse of the Derg in 1991.

Comment by Martin on 6/26/09 at 3:49 am Martin, Re: Revelation 11:19 correct is: "ark of his testament" The translation here in the KJV is correct.

It is a "testament" not a covenant.

Two entirely different words with different meanings! This is not a "covenant" but is the NEW TESTAMENT OF JESUS CHRIST.

Paul writes about it a lot to the Hebrews.

"But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises." (Heb.8:6) "...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…" (Heb.8:8-9).

"In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old.

Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away." (Heb.8:13).

Hebrews 9:15-24 explains why Revelation 11:19 refers to it as the "ark of his testament." What Judaism, Freemasonry and apostate Christianity is now attempting to do, in rejecting Jesus Christ as the true mediator of the New Testament, they are going back to the "old testament," attempting to rebuild the old temple of Solomon, and create their own old "ark of the covenant" and "earthly king" messiah to rule the world (like Caesar) as the Jews previously erroneously did at the time of Christ and create a new socialist "kingdom of heaven on earth" without Jesus Christ.

Regards, JACK.

Comment by Jack on 6/26/09 at 4:48 am The actions of Ethiopia will usher in "the Assyrian", a type for Antichrist.

Not Jesus.Isa 20:3 And the LORD said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia; Isa 20:4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.

Isa 20:5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.

Isa 20:6 And the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, whither we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?The Ark is in Heaven.In the Greek New Testament, "covenant" and "testament" are the same word = diathēkē Comment by Arms Longfellow on 6/26/09 at 6:47 am Post a CommentName: Email: URL: Type the word you see below:Comment: Remember my personal information Notify me of follow-up comments?Blog ExtrasTag CloudBlogrollTag CloudBlogrollGeneral ReligionBible Belt BlogBlogging the BibleBlogging ReligiouslyDallasMorningNewsFaithWorldGetReligionGod-o-MeterNYT ReligionThe SeekerChristianityChristianity TodayCT LiveBlogthe ROMANS 8 movementIslamAli EterazMuslim MattersJudaismThe Atheist JewBintel BlogJewcyJewish Current IssuesJewliciousMagnes ZionistMere RhetoricHeebMondoweissRJ.orgSeraphic SecretSolomoniaTikun OlamThe Tygrrrr ExpressYid With LidLos AngelesCurbed LAFishbowlLALAistLA ObservedPoliticsJeffrey GoldbergGlenn GreenwaldReality-Based CommunityThe Volokh ConspiracyScience and SkepticismFriendly AtheistThe Frontal CortexScience and Religion NewsJewish JournalBloggishGeekHeebIranian American JewsJews Choose 2008JewlywedsSo what's new?The Calendar GirlsVideoJewAdvertisement
