THE FOUR ANGELS
THE ARK OF GOD
And Its Supernatural Happenings
Prepared by Devon Grey
From the time of ancient Israel the Ark of the Covenant, the
focal point of Israel’s sojourn in the wilderness, was where God’s
throne on earth was, where His Holy Spirit the Shekinah abode on the mercy seat.
Many accounts in the Bible tell of supernatural events
connected with it until it was hidden in a cave by Jeremiah at the time of the
Babylonian captivity. Now in our day, under the leading of God’s Spirit,
the Lord leading Ron Wyatt to its discovery has shown again through supernatural
events and experiences the sacred nature of the Ark, for the sake of edifying
and confirming His continued presence.
This study will take the reader through all of the known
events past and present connected with the Ark and its contents, for its
contents (the 10 Commandment Tables of Stone) was the focus of God’s interest
in the Ark, and His protecting care over it throughout its history. But of
equal importance to the Heavenly Father, since His Son Jesus was crucified, is
Jesus’ spilt and now dried blood resting on the mercy seat. These things
make the resting place of the Ark the most important and precious spot in all of
God’s universe. This we know because it was revealed to Ron by the Lord
that the chamber where the ark rests is considered His earthly temple, the Most
Holy Place, where His Holy Spirit resides. This, the most precious place
in the universe, is the only physical evidence ever that today testifies of
God's gift of His Son to save mankind. This blood is the only physical
witness today of what happened 2000 years ago when Jesus died. Up until
1990, when Ron was led to this most important find ever, no one had even a clue
where the Ark was hidden for over 2500 years, much less that Jesus’ blood
actually fell on the mercy seat of the Ark.
This study will give the hard evidence for this most amazing
discovery of all time, and the physical supernatural manifestations of this as
proof of who has orchestrated this discovery. It should be obvious to all the
utter impossibility that this find could have been arranged by any man or group
of men without God's direct intervention, leading, and guiding Ron.
What Ron experienced on His fourth trip into the chamber has
recently been written up as prima facie evidence, and will soon be a witness to
the world as God moves to bring this information out into the light.
ASSOCIATED ARK MIRACLES OF THE PAST:
There are 4 angels that were assigned by God to protect and
keep the Ark and the "Tables of Stone," contained therein. Little did
anyone dream that over 2500 years later these angels would make their presence
known again to Ron Wyatt on his fourth visit to the chamber where the Ark is
This whole story and miraculous chain of events is the most
precious and exciting revelation by God in modern times. This series of
discoveries revealed to Ron Wyatt starting in the 1970's, has to be one of the
strongest evidences that last day events are upon us and that we must be at the
end of time.
The following extract gives
a good history of the Ark and the series of miraculous events associated with
it. Significant to the reader is the mention of four angels who were
assigned to go with the ark and remain with it. These angels were
responsible for the miraculous events which happened during its history and
connected with the Israelites. This was taken from the Book Spirit of
Prophecy, vol. 1, pages 398-414, in a chapter entitled The Ark of God.
THE ARK OF GOD
The ark of God was a sacred chest, made to be the depository
of the ten commandments, which law was the representative of God himself.
This ark was considered the glory and strength of Israel. The token of the
Divine presence abode upon it day and night. The priests who ministered
before it were sacredly consecrated to the holy office. They wore a
breast-plate bordered with precious stones of different materials, the same that
compose the twelve foundations of the city of God. Within the borders were the
names of the twelve tribes of Israel, graven on precious stones set in gold.
This was a very rich and beautiful work, suspended from the shoulders of the
priests, covering the breast.
At the right and left of the breast-plate were set two larger
stones, which shone with great brilliancy. When difficult matters were
brought to the judges, which they could-not decide, they were referred to the
priests, and they inquired of God who answered them. If he favored, and if
he would grant them success, a halo of light and glory especially rested upon
the precious stone at the right. If he disapproved, a vapor or cloud
seemed to settle upon the precious stone at the left hand. When they
inquired of God in regard to going to battle, the precious stone at the right,
when circled with light, said, Go, and prosper. The stone at the left, when
shadowed with a cloud, said, Thou shalt not go; thou shalt not prosper.
When the high priest entered within the most holy, once a
years; and ministered before the ark in the awful presence of God, he inquired,
and God often answered him with an audible voice. When the Lord did not
answer by a voice, he let the sacred beams of light and glory rest upon the
cherubim upon the right of the ark, in approbation, or favor. If their
requests were refused a cloud rested upon the cherubim at the left.
THE FOUR ANGELS
Four heavenly angels always accompanied the ark of God in all
its journeys, to guard it from all danger; and to fulfill any mission
required of them to connection with the ark.
AT THE JORDAN:
Jesus the Son of God, followed by heavenly angels went before
the ark as it came to Jordan; and the waters were cut off before his
presence. Christ and angels stood by the ark and the priests in the bed of
the river, until all Israel had passed over Jordan. Christ and angels
attended the circuit of the ark around Jericho, and finally cast down the
massive walls of the city, and delivered Jericho into the hands of Israel.
IN THE LAND OF THE PHILISTINES:
God permitted his ark to be taken by their enemies, to show
Israel how vain it was to trust in the ark, the symbol of his presence, while
they were profaning the commandments contained in the ark. God would humble them
by removing from them that sacred ark, their boasted strength and confidence.
The Philistines were triumphant, because they had, as they
thought, the famous god of the Israelites, which had performed such wonders for
them and had made them a terror to their enemies. They took the ark of God
to Ashdod, and set it in a splendid temple, made in honor of their most popular
god, Dagon, and placed it by the side of their god. In the morning, the
priests of these gods entered the temple, and they were terrified to find Dagon
fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the Lord. They raised
Dagon and placed him in his former position. They thought he might have
accidentally fallen. But the next morning they found him fallen as before
upon his face to the ground, and the head of Dagon and both his hands were cut
off. THE (4) ANGELS OF GOD WHO ACCOMPANIED THE ARK, prostrated the
senseless idol god, and afterward mutilated it, to show that God, the living
God, was above all gods, and that before him every heathen god was as nothing.
The men of Ashdod began to be greatly afflicted. The
Lord destroyed them; and they remembered the plagues brought upon Egypt, and
their mutilated god, and were convinced that it was because they kept the ark of
God, that these distressing afflictions came upon them. God would evidence
to the idolatrous Philistines, and also to his people, that the ark was strength
and power to those who were obedient to his law; and that to the disobedient and
wicked it was punishment and death. When the men of Ashdod became
convinced that it was the God of the Hebrews who caused their afflictions,
because of his ark, they decided that the ark of the God of Israel should not
abide with them. For, said they, "his hand is sore upon us, and upon
Dagon, our god." The great men and rulers consulted together,
relative to what they should do with the ark of the God of Israel. They
had taken it in triumph, but knew not what to do with the sacred chest; for
instead of its being a power and strength to them, it was a great burden and a
heavy curse. They decided to send it to Gath. But THE DESTROYING
ANGELS carried on their work of destruction in that place also. Very many
of the people of Gath died; and they dared not retain the ark longer there, lest
the God of Israel should consume them all by his curse.
They of Gath decided to send the ark to Ekron. The Ekronites
were also afflicted, and great numbers of them died. They went to their gods for
help, as the cities of Ashdod and Gath had done, but they obtained no relief.
They then humbled themselves to cry to the God of Israel, to whom the ark
belonged for relief from their affliction. So they sent and gathered together
all the lords of the Philistines, and said, "Send away the ark of the God
of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our
people; for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of
God was very heavy there. And the men that died not, were smitten with the
emerods; and the cry of the city went up to Heaven." It was borne
from place to place in terror, and destruction from God followed its course,
until the Philistines were greatly perplexed to know what to do with it.
ANGELS WHO ACCOMPANIED IT, GUARDED IT FROM ALL HARM. And the Philistines
did not dare to open the chest; for their god Dagon had met with such a fate
that they feared to touch it, or to have it near them. They called for the
priests and the diviners, and inquired of them what they should do with the ark
of God. They advised them to send it back to the people to whom it
belonged, and the send with it a costly trespass-offering, which if God would be
pleased to accept, they would be healed. They should also understand that
God's hand was upon them because they had taken his ark, which belonged alone to
Some were not in favor of this. It was too humiliating
to carry back the ark; and they urged that no one of the Philistines would dare
venture his life, to carry the ark of the God of Israel, which had brought such
death upon them. Their counselors entreated the people not to harden their
hearts, as the Egyptians and Pharaoh had done, and cause still greater
afflictions and plagues to come upon them. And as they were all afraid to
take the ark of God, they advised them, saying, "Now therefore, make a new
cart, and take two milch kine, on which there hath come on yoke, and tie the
kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them. And take the ark
of the Lord, and lay it upon the cart; and put the jewels of gold, which ye
return him for a trespass-offering, in a coffer by the side thereof; and send it
away, that it may go. And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast
to Beth-shemesh, then he hath done us this great evil; but if not, then we shall
know that it is not his hand that smote us; it was a chance that happened to
us. And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the
cart, and shut up their calves at home." "And the kine
took the straight way to the way of Beth-shemesh, and went along the highway,
lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the
The Philistines knew that the cows would not be induced to
leave their young calves at home, unless they should be urged by some unseen
power. The cows went direct to Beth-shemesh, lowing for their calves, yet
going directly from them. The lords of the Philistines followed after the
ark unto the border of Beth-shemesh. The dared not trust that sacred chest
wholly to the cows. They feared that if any evil happened to it, greater
calamities would come upon them. They knew not THAT ANGELS OF GOD ACCOMPANIED
THE ARK, and guided the cows in their course to the place where it belonged.
ON TO BETH-SHEMESH:
The men of Beth-shemesh were curious to know what great power
could be in that ark, which caused it to accomplish such marvelous things.
They looked upon the ark alone as being so powerful, and were not accrediting
the power to God. None but men sacredly appointed for the purpose could
look upon the ark , divested of its coverings, without being slain; for it was
as though looking upon God himself. And as the people gratified their
curiosity, and opened the ark to gaze into its sacred recesses, which the
heathen idolaters had not dared to do, THE ANGELS ATTENDING THE ARK SLEW ABOVE
FIFTY THOUSAND OF THE PEOPLE.
And the people of Beth-shemesh were afraid of the ark; and
they said, "'Who is able to stand before this holy Lord
God.' And to whom shall he go up from us? And they sent messengers
to the inhabitants of Kirjath-jearim, saying, The Philistines have brought again
the ark of the Lord. Come ye down, and fetch it up to you."
The people of Kirjath-jearim brought the ark of the Lord to the house of
Abinadab, and sanctified his son to keep it. For twenty years the Hebrews
were in the power of the Philistines, and they were greatly humbled, and
repented of their sins; and Samuel interceded for them, and God was again
merciful to them.
BACK TO ISRAEL:
The ark remained in the house of Abinadab until David was
made king. He gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty
thousand, and went to bring up the ark of God. They set the ark upon a new
cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of
Abinadab, drove the cart. David and all the house of Israel played before
the Lord on all manner of musical instruments. "And when they came
to Nachon's threshing-floor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and
took hold of it; for the oxen shook it. 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." He showed a manifest distrust of God, as though he
who had brought the ark from the land of the Philistines, could not take care of
it. ANGELS WHO ATTENDED THE ARK STRUCK DOWN UZZAH for presuming
impatiently to put his hand upon the ark of God.
"And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it
in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it. And
David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord."
After Solomon had finished building the temple, he assembled
the elders of Israel, and the most influential men among the people, to bring up
the ark of the covenant of the Lord out of the city of David. Solomon
followed the example of his father David. Every six paces, he
sacrificed. With singing, and with music, and great ceremony, "the
priests brought in the ark of the covenant for the Lord unto his place, into the
oracle of the house, to the most holy place, even under the wings of the
cherubim. For the cherubim spread forth their two wings over the place of
the ark, and the cherubim covered the ark and the staves thereof above."
A most splendid sanctuary had been made, according to the
pattern showed to Moses in the mount, and afterward presented by the Lord to
David. The earthly sanctuary was made like the heavenly. In
addition to the cherubim on the top of the ark, Solomon made two other angels of
larger size, standing at each end of the ark, REPRESENTING THE HEAVENLY ANGELS
ALWAYS GUARDING THE LAW OF GOD. It is impossible to describe the
beauty and splendor of this tabernacle. There, as in the tabernacle, the
sacred ark was borne in solemn, reverential order, and set in its place beneath
the wings of the two stately cherubim that stood upon the floor.
INTO THE TEMPLE:
The sacred choir united their voices with all kinds of
musical instruments, in praise to God. And while the voices, in harmony
with instruments of music, resounded through the temple, and were borne upon the
air through Jerusalem, the cloud of God's glory took possession of the house, as
it had formerly filled the tabernacle. "And it came to pass, when the
priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the
Lord, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud; for
the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord."
King Solomon stood upon a brazen scaffold before the altar,
and blessed the people. He then knelt down, and with his hands raised
upward, poured forth earnest and solemn prayer to God, while the congregation
were bowed with their faces to the ground. After Solomon had ended his
prayer, a miraculous fire came from Heaven and consumed the sacrifice.
Because of the sins of Israel, the calamity which God said
should come upon the temple if his people departed from him, was fulfilled some
hundreds of years after the temple was built. God promised Solomon, if he would
remain faithful, and his people would obey all his commandments, that that
glorious temple should stand forever in all its splendor, as an evidence
of the prosperity and exalted blessings resting upon Israel for their obedience.
THE ARK HIDDEN:
Because of Israel's transgression of the commandments of God,
and their wicked acts, God suffered them to go into captivity, to humble and
punish them. Before the temple was destroyed, God made known to a few of
his faithful servants the fate of the temple, which was the pride of Israel, and
which they regarded with idolatry, while they were sinning against God. He
also revealed to them the captivity of Israel. THESE RIGHTEOUS MEN, JUST BEFORE
THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE, REMOVED THE SACRED ARK CONTAINING THE TABLES OF
STONE, AND WITH MOURNING AND SADNESS, SECRETED IT IN A CAVE WHERE IT WAS TO BE
HID FROM THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, BECAUSE OF THEIR SINS, AND WAS TO BE NO MORE
RESTORED TO THEM. THAT SACRED ARK IS YET HID. IT HAS NEVER BEEN
DISTURBED SINCE IT WAS SECRETED.
After almost 2600 years in hiding the Lord has
revealed the location of the Ark and orchestrated its being brought to light.
Beginning with Ron's arm going up and pointing to where it was hidden, and words
coming out of his mouth that he did not speak, and ending with his encounter
with the four angels.
The four angels guarding the Ark and its contents since Moses
put the tables of stone in the Ark, are still at their post of duty. They
helped Ron personally in what the Lord wanted to have done. The world will
soon see them on the video Ron was instructed to make by them, along with the
tables of stone and Jesus' blood. In God's time all will be revealed.
MORE MIRACULOUS HAPPENINGS:
(As told by Ron)
When we were excavating in Israel for the Ark of the Covenant
a lot of people would come by. We were just about a block and a half up
the street from the Rockefeller museum which is where all the offices of the
Israeli Antiquities Department are located. Now, there's been a letter sent
around that implies that we never had a permit and possibly never excavated and
all those sorts of things. Satan is at work and there are those who will
not enter the kingdom and they will do all they can to stop others from
entering. And so this is the type of thing we are dealing with.
Well, by way of a quick explanation - The United Nations
passed 2 resolutions that there was to be no Archaeological excavations in
occupied territories, so all of us who have received permits to do
archaeological work in occupied territories have been asked to keep those
private. One person who kind of shouted around about his is not doing
archaeological work in Israel any more.... I'm not going to jeopardize my
relationship with those people just to have the satisfaction of showing some of
these people that they are wrong. There are things that are more important
than proving people wrong. And all the folks that we discuss we pray for.
Remember this. Anybody that gets to heaven is going to be a nice person.
So you can enthusiastically pray for the worst kind of people there are, that
the Lord will save them, because, again, if they get to heaven they're going to
be nice people!
From time to time people would come by, they'd come over and
stop and watch for a bit. And several of them would come over and say,
"What are you all diggin' for?" And so I'd say, "The
Ark of the Covenant". And they'd look at me right funny and
they'd say, "SURE!" and they'd go on their way.
This one man came by one day around noon and he watched for a
bit and then he said, "Look, can I help ya'?" I said,
"Sure." So we let him carry buckets of dirt and debris
from the top of the dig (of course the dig was down in the cave and that day my
turn was up on the top - I had to go round up some things, and so I was working
up there) - we let him carry the buckets off to where we were dropping the
palings. And so he started asking a few questions and we had a
conversation about a few things. And he said, "You know, I'm going
through a religious training school over on the other side of Jerusalem and I
wish you could come over there and talk to the rest of the students and our
teachers." And he said, "Is that sort of thing possible?"
And I said, "Sure. If you'll give me a time I'll try to get over there."
And so he excused himself. He said, "I'll go make a phone call and then
find out what would be a good time." So he was gone for a few
minutes, came back, and he said, "How's Wednesday evening?"
And I said, "That would be fine." And so he gave me directions
how to get to the place where this school was located and he put it on the back
of a piece of paper and I stuck it in my pocket.
Wednesday came, and I knocked off a bit early, got washed up
and I got a "rent-a-wreck" car. (You can get them quite
inexpensively - they've all been wrecked but they still run so that's the main
part! None of them have air conditioning, or at least the ones I got
didn't, so I had the windows rolled down.) I was proceeding across
Jerusalem all on these streets that were on the little sketch and I got to one
place and I couldn't find the street and I was going back and forth along this
road looking for that street and it just simply wasn't there! So after
about a half a dozen passes, I said, "Lord, if You want me to talk to
these people You're going to have to help me find them, 'cause I simply can't
find the street here." And I asked that in Jesus' name. (Probably
if I'd done it the SECOND trip it wouldn't have taken so long!.)
I decided, to go down the street I was on and make one more
pass, and if I don't find it I'm just simply going back to the hotel and try
again some other day. I turned around and started back up the
street, and there was a little old man tottering along the edge of the
pavement. He was having a terrible time keeping his balance. He
wasn't drunk, he was just simply, you know, one foot on the dirt and the other
one on the black-top and some stones and stuff there and so he would wobble out
in the road a bit. And I stopped forgetting about my problem. And I
said, "Sir, can I take you home or wherever you want to go, 'cause
you're going to get killed out there like you are." And so he
said, "Yes, Thank you!" And so he got in the car and I
said, "Now, I'm lost already, so you'll have to tell me where to turn."
And he said, "Well, I'm going to a little shop at the foot of the hill
up here." And I said, "OK. You just tell me where
to turn and I'll take you there." And so we went up the street a
little ways and he said, "Turn here." And so I turned
down that street and we got to the bottom of the hill and here was this market
and I said, "Are you sure this is where you want to go?" And he
said, "Yes." Well, the market was all boarded up.
It had sheets of plywood over the windows and doors, and weeds and saplings were
growing up all around the thing - it was quite obvious to me that it hadn't been
used in several years! That's why I asked him "Are you sure this
is where you want to go?" He said "Yes."
So anyway, he got out of the car and he turned around and stuck his head back in
the window and he said, "The young man you are looking for is up that
road at the top of the hill." [pointing] He said, "You go
through one gate and it's the first house on the right." Well, I
hadn't said a word to him about no young man or anything like that....
When he pointed I looked to make sure I saw what direction he was pointing and
when I looked back to say "thank you" he was gone....
Well, we had a REAL good meeting that night...!!! But folks,
God's angels have been given orders to do anything they can to facilitate the
finishing of God's work. And if you want to have these kinds of
experiences yourself, just be sure you know what to tell people. That they must
go to the Father in the name and blood of His Son and ask for forgiveness and
rehabilitation, and that God's law is binding throughout eternity. In Ps.
89 verse 34 He says, "My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing
that is gone out of my lips." Now we've been sharing that thought
with people for some time and the other day I was reading in the Spirit of
Prophecy and ran across a statement where she is talking about the last work and
she said "the workers will remind the world that God does not alter the
thing that has gone out of His lips." Well, I don't know about
you, but that is quite reassuring to me to know that the Lord impressed me to
state that and that she had predicted that that would be a part of the last
(As told during question and answer period at Lexington, TN on
January 9, 1999)
QUESTION: What about the 6 men who died. Were they Rabbi's?
ANSWER: Now about the six men. I don't know if they were
Rabbi's or not. The Ark of the Covenant is 300' north of the old city wall of
Jerusalem and is in occupied territory. As you know Yasser Arafat has every
intention of getting Jerusalem back and this area. And the UN and the United
States seem to be intent on forcing Israel to accept that situation.
The Israelis wanted to move the Ark of the Covenant out of
occupied territory, into their own territory. And they allowed or arranged for
six men, dressed in Levitical garb to go in and move the Ark. I didn't ask too
many questions as I have learned that it is best not to get nosy. When I go over
there, quite often I will stop by the Antiquities Office, and ask them if there
is something I can help them with. Now we have some electronics and some
experience using electronics, and so we are able to find things that they have
problems locating. We are able to see if there is something in a cave, before we
actually open it, with electronics. And so they have had me do some of this for
On this occasion they just said, "yes
we have a problem that you may be able to help us with." So that night
I met them down at Zedekiah's Cave. Some of you know where that is if you have
been there. And so we went in, and they said that six men went down this tunnel
to move the Ark of the Covenant to a safer place and they didn't come out.
"Would you go see what happened to them." Well the Israelis are
not cowards by any stretch of the imagination. Now the men that were in the
tunnel had these walkie-talkies or radios, and I'm sure they were in contact
with people that were at the opening to the tunnel. All I can figure is, that
they must have made some horrifying noises as they died, which was heard by
those outside, otherwise they would have gone in to see what happened to
them. But, nobody would go in. Well when I went in they were all six
dead. From the beginning of the tunnel in Zedekiah's Cave to the chamber that
the Ark of the Covenant is in, is 370'. They had progressed approximately 70'
along the tunnel when they died. All of them died of a bilateral stroke, as
witnessed by the fact that in all six, both of their eyes were crossed.
Now to date there have been approximately 16 people who have
died, because they have tried to interfere with or stop this work that God is
allowing me to do. Most of them died in connection with the Ark of the Covenant
in particular. They have all died of brain cancer or stroke. So anyway what I
basically did when I saw what had happened, I went back out and told them. They
had brought along these rescue baskets made of lightweight alloy, with ropes
tied to them in case I was able to go in.
So I took the baskets in one at a time. I would pick up a
body and put it in a basket. I held it upright as the people at the end of the
tunnel would pull the basket out. When we got one to the entrance to the tunnel,
I would take another basket back in and load on another body, until we got all
six of them out. I didn't ask what they did with them, I didn't ask anything and
was asked not to say anything. But this appeared in a couple of papers that
there had been six Israelis die in an effort to retrieve a national artifact.
Because it was in the papers, some people asked me if I knew about it. I
answered yes! And so we have shared that information. What this indicates
is simply God is quite happy with the Ark of the Covenant being where it is, and
has no intention of letting anybody move it.
ANOTHER TRAGIC DEATH:
Another incident had to do with a man who was told about the
Ark's existence before Ron was told not to say anything. He got all excited
and wanted Ron to get the information to the press. Ron refused, so the
man said he was going to get the word out and called some newspapermen to hold a
news conference. Ron was quite worried about this, but could not do
anything about it as he was scheduled to fly home the next morning, the same
time the man was to inform the press. That conference was never held, for
the man was found dead in a back alley with his throat slashed from ear to ear.
WHEN GOD SAID NO:
Another incident in which God had a hand, but the results
were not tragic, because God kept it from happening. This was when a
religious television program, tried to scope the news about the discovery
of the Ark and tried to coerce Ron to take them there, bribing him with money
etc. They offered to pay his way over and go with him, hoping when they
got there, Ron would buckle under. The head of the program and his brother
were there. They were pressuring him to take them to the Ark, but Ron
Finally someone suggested that they pray for a sign as to
what to do. They took that suggestion and prayed that if Ron WAS NOT to
take them to the Ark that it would rain by the next day. Rain in that part of the world
and at that time of the year was very unlikely, but that night it rained
hard. The next day, one of the brothers was still insistent that they be
taken to the Ark. He suggested that his brother go. This brother
told him that there was no way he would think of doing that, for God had given a
clear NO, and he would not be a part of the other brothers scheme.
The outcome was that they did not get to video tape the Ark
as planned. An outcome from all of this was that the one brother who was
insistent started a rumor that Ron had broken an agreement and taken the
money. This is a boldface lie and never happened. The enemy has
tried hard to smear Ron's name and discredit the discoveries.
WHEN JESUS CAME TO RON:
This last account gives a glimpse into Ron’s humility
and one reason the Lord chose him for this discovery. A question was asked
by a man at the Grants Pass meeting.
QUESTION: QUITE OFTEN I GET ASKED WHAT WAS THE MOST
PRECIOUS MOMENT OF ALL IN MY WORK ON THESE THINGS THAT YOU’VE SEEN HERE.
ANSWER: I was in North Carolina one afternoon or
evening. The people had just seen the video and were asking
questions. Somebody asked, “Do you camp out when you are working on
these projects?” I said, “No, I was in the army and I had all the
camping out I wanted and I have no intention of ever doing that again. We
stay at a real cheap hotel North of the Damascus gate on Nablus Road, it’s
called the Jerusalem Hotel.” A little later somebody asked, “When
are you going back.” I said, “About the middle of September.”
Well we got everything together, my helpers whom I knew I
could trust, and off we went. When we walked up to the Jerusalem Hotel
there on the front steps sat the doctor that had been in the audience in
Hendersonville, North Carolina, uninvited and unwanted. I realized that I
had spent all of this money to get over there, to work on this and I couldn’t
because this man could not be trusted, otherwise he would have at least asked
before he showed up.
Now then, I am very sensitive to make sure that God is with
me in everything I do. These things are too important for somebody to try
and use their own smarts or cleverness, which we don’t possess to begin with
on deciding what to do and when to do with these things. I reached the
conclusion that God couldn’t use me anymore, that one of my mistakes or
whatever had been too much, and that I was no longer in His favor, and that He
wasn’t guiding me anymore, or that man would not have shown up like that.
I said a prayer, “Lord I am sorry. I knew to begin
with that I was not worthy to do these things. I thank you for allowing me
to do this much. If I can be of any help to the next person, I’ll
be glad to do it.” I have never been more depressed in my life, and
I’ve been in some pretty depressing situations. I saw the Ark of the
Covenant, the blood on the Mercy Seat and all of that, and then I was no longer
useful to God. I couldn’t continue.
We decided to clean out the garden tomb of a bunch of trash
and stuff that had accumulated over the years. If you want to see where
Christ was buried, go look in the garden tomb, that’s where. The
crucifixion site is approximate 80 feet from the garden tomb. I won’t
tell you any more on that until we can show it to you on video.
Anyway, I had a fan that was cooling us off a bit because it
was extremely hot. The fan died. Misery on top of misery. Well
the doctor had been helping and when the fan died he got his lunch and we
scooted back up under some shrubbery off to my right in the shade eating his
lunch. I was sitting flat on the ground trying to fix this fan.
I had nothing to live for people. Have you ever been in
that situation? Anyway I heard this voice say, “God bless you in what
your doing here.” Well, the owner of that voice knew everything that
I was doing. I could tell by the way that he said that. I was
shocked because there was not supposed to be anybody there that knew that.
I looked up (a pause as he became filled with emotion, close to tears) and there
stood Jesus. I was not having a dream or a vision because afterward the
doctor piped up and said, “Ron, do you suppose we have been talking with an
angel?” He looked exactly like EG White described Him—tall dark
hair, dark beard, dark brown eyes, rather light complexioned for having dark
hair and eyes, and the kindest expression I have ever seen in (his voice breaks
again and is close to tears) my whole life.
I knew it was Jesus, but I’m a researcher and I thought I
would ask a few questions and make sure. So I said, “Sir, do you live
around here?” He said, “No!” You see the outfit he
was wearing was like of similar to what Arabs still wear today, but not exactly
because His garments were hand woven rather than machine woven. I asked
Him if he was a tourist, He said, “No!” I couldn’t think of
anything else to ask Him, so I just sat there and looked at Him. He then
said, “I am on my way from South Africa to the New Jerusalem.”
Do you remember Jacob’s dream. He was a little ways North of Jerusalem
and he saw the ascending and descending, and he said is not this the gate of
heaven? Jesus was on His way from South Africa to the New Jerusalem, and the
prophet said that it was the gateway to heaven.
I just sat there. I did not know what to say. I
was dumbfounded, I was not even sure I was breathing by then. He looked at
me again with that kind expression and said, “God bless you in what you’re
doing here.” (Again filled with emotion so he had to pause)
That folks was the most precious moment of all of this, and the most precious
moment of my entire life. I hope that an even more precious moment will
come for all of us when we can look into that wonderful face (voice breaks
filled with tears) and hear Him say, “Come thou good and faithful
servant. Enter thou into the kingdom of thy Lord.”
God has done everything possible to save us folks.
Please don’t allow Satan to steal this from you. Let us bow our heads
for a moment. “Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for what you’ve
done for us. We thank you that you love us. We don’t know why you
did it, but we appreciate it. We ask you that you will bless everybody
here this evening, as only you are wise, powerful and caring enough to do.
Help us to be humble, loyal and truthful servants. Help us to lift up
Jesus that others will be drawn to Him and be saved. Please don’t allow
anyone to be lost that you can use us to help them come to you and be
saved. In Jesus name and by His precious blood I pray. Amen!
Thus the Lord has given graphic evidence that even up to the
present time, He is still watching over the Ark and its precious cargo.
The four angels who were assigned to the Ark after Moses placed the tables of
stone inside, are still on the job, faithfully watching and keeping the Ark safe
until the time its contents will be revealed to the world along with the video
that Ron has taken.
Praise God for revealing this most incredible find of all
time. May we all be ready when this time comes, for the main purpose of
these revelations is so people will prepare for what is ahead. All who
want to be ready have the opportunity now of preparing themselves. How is
this done? By seeking the Lord with all their hearts, seeking for an
intimate, personal relationship with Him. Asking daily for the infilling
of His Holy Spirit, and feeding in His Word daily. May God bless you all.
LOOK UP AND LIVE FOR YOUR
REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH!!
