6.2 – ALIENS & THE LOST ARK (12.6.13)

CONSTRUCTION & CONTENTS [3b]

The West Bank. July, 2013. Ten miles north of the Israeli settlement of Beit El, archaeologists unearth clay pots, stoves, and a portion of a wall dating back to around 1300 BC. But the most mundane of their findings here may also be the holes carved into the solid rock ground. Based on the location and the date of the artifacts, they believe these holes may have once held the wooden beams used to support the Tabernacle at Shiloh. If true, it is the first physical evidence ever discovered of the ancient sanctuary built to house what is perhaps the most mysterious religious relic in the world: the Ark of the Covenant.

“The story of the Ark of the Covenant is one of the most fascinating and unexplored stories of the Bible. The Ark of the Covenant had some very mysterious powers.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The Ark of the Covenant was what took me out of mainstream journalism. I began to wonder, what could this thing have been?”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

Reproductions of the Ark of the Covenant can be found in churches, synagogues, and Masonic temples throughout the world. It has even been featured in popular culture. But just what is the Ark of the Covenant?

Mount Sinai. The 15th-century BC. According to the Bible’s Book of Exodus, after the Israelites were released from Egypt, God summoned Moses to the peak of this holy mountain and gave him two stone tablets, carved with the Ten Commandments. He also gave him specific instructions for building the Ark of the Covenant.

“It was the box that was constructed to contain the two tablets of the Ten Commandments, which were irradiated with divine power because they had been touched by the finger of God.”

Graham Hancock (Author, Fingerprints of the Gods)

“The covenant itself was a contract between God and the Israelites – “I will be your God and protect you, provided you keep my commandments.” Israel’s end of the deal, then, was going to be kept in the box, which is the Ark itself.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

But the Ark of the Covenant didn’t only carry the Ten Commandments. It was also said to be the throne of God himself.

“In the Book of Exodus, in the 25th chapter, the verse is very clear. God says to Moses, “V’Asu li mikdash v’shachanti b’tocham.” “Have them make me a holy place” and I, God, I will dwell among them.” And wherever the Ark went, that power of God went with them.”

Rabbi Ed Feinstein (Author, Valley Beth Shalom, Encino, CA)

“The Ark is built in a reflection of what’s called a “heavenly ark.” It was built two-and-a-half cubits by one-and-a-half cubits by one-and-a-half cubits. So, the Ark would have been somewhere in the ballpark of about a three by five foot rectangular box.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“It was going to be covered with gold, on the outside and the inside. And it was to have two gold rings in each of the four corners. And it was carried with poles that were run through the rings. And the orders were that the poles should never be removed from the rings. And the lid was to be made out of gold, and on each end of the lid were to be cherubim or guardian angels, basically, with wings.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

But why was it so important that the Ark be constructed to such exact specifications? And why would God, a spiritual being, require a physical throne here on Earth? Perhaps there is an answer in the Bible’s description of Moses after he returned from Mount Sinai.

“After Moses came down from Mount Sinai, he was glowing, the Bible says, that he had to wear a scarf over his face.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“I am fascinated with the idea that Moses all of a sudden, his appearance changed. And so, the idea that Moses, all of a sudden, looked different we have to ask ourselves, why?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Just what did Moses encounter on Mount Sinai? Was it God? Or was it someone or something else?

“God is clearly an entity not of this earth, and by definition, therefore, an extraterrestrial. Where does he come from? We must recognize that when the ancients are speaking about God, there is no other term that we can use to describe these experiences other than ‘extraterrestrial.’”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

After the Ark was built and the Ten Commandments placed within it, the Israelites carried it with them on their 40-year exodus through the desert.

“The Ark of the Covenant was considered powerful, because it was the meeting place of God and humanity. And so, it had to be carried on poles so that it could be conveyed without being touched.”

Rabbi Ed Feinstein (Author, Valley Beth Shalom, Encino, CA)

“Certain people were allowed to carry it, and those people were ordained priests. Aaron, Moses’ brother, and his sons were certainly priests. It was a prestigious job. But you had to know what you were doing.”

Rev. Michael J.S. Carter, M.Div.
(Author, Alien Scriptures)

“Now, the Ark would be covered while they’re carrying it, with a cloth, so that they really couldn’t see what they were carrying. And they were given strict orders that they should not lift up the cloth and look at the Ark and try to see it.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

But why was the Ark considered so dangerous that it couldn’t be touched, or even looked at? According to the Old Testament accounts, the Ark of the Covenant was not only a powerful device on its own. It also housed a number of other important religious relics. In addition to the Ten Commandments, it held Aaron’s Rod, the staff that could miraculously turn into a serpent. It also held a jar of manna, an edible starch which, reportedly, came from the sky.

“What we begin to realize is that the Ark of the Covenant was a sort of tool kit. And once this tool kit was assembled, we have the fully functioning Ark of the Covenant.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“The ark went before them in the wilderness and made sure the place where the children of Israel were to go, would be safe and able to provide for them in the desert. Anybody who’s been to the Sinai Desert, you could hardly imagine two-three million people having any kind of sustenance in a desert. So, therefore, what the Ark must have accomplished was profound.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

The Ark of the Covenant was said to have protected and provided for the Israelites during the Exodus, but how?

“What we can read in the Bible is that they were sustained by something called “manna.” And the big question is where did this manna come from? Well, two engineers by a name of Rodney Dale and George Sassoon in the 1970s proposed that the Ark of the Covenant was nothing else but a container in which to store what they referred to as the Manna Machine. The Manna Machine was a nuclear-driven device that dispensed food, or manna, to the Israelites.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“The Ark of the Covenant is such a mystery. It could actually create food, supposedly, the-the manna that they were eating. It’s like some kind of super engineering, duplicating energy machine.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“We have a concise description of it in the ancient Jewish text of the Zohar, which is a part of the Kabbalah where they describe the Ancient of Days. But in reality “the Ancient of Days” is a mistranslation. The correct translation is “the transportable one with the tanks.”  Since when is God transportable and why does He need tanks? So, in the Zohar we have concise descriptions not of God but some type of a machine.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Did the Ark of the Covenant really house a machine that provided food to the Israelites during their 40 years in the desert? According to Ancient Astronaut Theorists and many religious scholars, the answer is yes. But that wasn’t the only power the Ark possessed. For as the Ark could sustain life, it could also destroy it.
