It’s all about the Ark of the Covenant, Who Has “The Authority” to come near and Touch it? Now, it represents The Throne… The 10 Commandments… are the TREE of Life with healing in the leaves…For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life eternal. Proverbs 6:23
On Earth: Inside the Ark of the Covenant are the 10 Commandments…
In Heaven, the Spiritual Temple: Inside the temple is the Ark of the Testament which is the Ark of the Covenant.
The 12 Stones of the Priests who “bear” the Ark are still here: Joshua 4:9 And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day. Seven Priests with Seven Trumpets are still bearing the Ark: Joshua 6:6 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD…7 the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them. Possession of the Ark = SALVATION 1Samuel 4:3 And when the people were come into the camp, the elders of Israel said, Wherefore (WHY) hath the LORD smitten us to day before the Philistines? Let us fetch the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of Shiloh unto us, that, when it cometh among us, it may save us out of the hand of our enemies…5 And when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, so that the Earth rang(vibrated or shook,) again.. The Ark has everything to do with our deliverance from bondage just like the first time:1Kings 8: And I have set there a place for the ark, wherein is the covenant of the LORD, which he made with our fathers, when he brought them out of the land of Egypt(bondage) Israel MUST NOW STAND and Shout for the Ark: 1ch 15:28 Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD with shouting, and with sound of the cornet, and with trumpets, and with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and harps 1 Ch 22: Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of the LORD God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of the LORD. Jer 3:16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days,(the days of the RESTORATION) saith the LORD, they(those who return) shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD( disappeared with the broken covenant of which it was a SYMBOL) neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.(thought to have been destroyed and burned with the Temple)17 17 At that time(FUTURE RESTORATION where the Ark is replaced by the throne) they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. 2 Ch 5: 9 And they drew out the staves of the ark, that the ends of the staves were seen from the ark before the oracle; but they were not seen without. And there it is unto this day.(Solomon’s Temple) 10 There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt Isaiah 8: 13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken. 16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. 17 And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. The glory has departed from Israel"--because of the capture of the ark of God 1Samuel 4:21 Now the people of Beth Shemesh were REAPING(harvesting )their wheat in the valley, and when they looked up and saw the ark, they rejoiced at the sight.1 Samuel 6:13… Just Looking into the Ark can be deadly. What happens if it is touched, mixing the holy, Ark of the Covenant that holds the Testimony with the profane? But God struck down some of the men of Beth Shemesh, putting seventy of them to death because they had looked into the ark of the Lord. The people mourned because of the heavy blow the Lord had dealt them, and the men of Beth Shemesh asked, "Who can stand in the presence of the Lord, this holy God? To whom will the ark go up from here?"1Samuel 6:19-20 2Samuel 2: And when they came to Nachon's threshing floor, Uzzahput forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. 7 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah (thought he was accepted and prepared); and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
Revelation 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. I was emailed a very interesting video claiming that the Ark is hidden in Jeremiah’s Grotto. Maybe it is and that is why it has been forgotten until NOW in these latter days! I do not know if it is or isn’t. It matters not for we are NOW the living Temple. It is interesting in that it is claimed that this grotto is directly beneath the crucifixion site and that Yahshua’s blood dripped down through a crack in the Earth directly onto the mercy seat! And this is confirmation that Mercy does indeed triumph over judgment, literally. And it suggest a rebuilding of what is broken down one on top of the other just like resurrection over death. That is the good news. The gates of death shall not prevail and hold us out. The priests of the Ark are already standing in Jordan waiting for the people to pass over, again the second exodus is happening NOW. It’s harvest time at the threshing floor on Earth.
