The Ark and the Blood

          To learn of the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant by Ron Wyatt in 1982, was thrilling news.  To think that the LORD was giving us hard evidence that He died on the cross, that the rocks were rent, and His Blood actually flowed down that crack and onto the Ark of the Covenant, that had been hidden there in a cave 615 years before.  Type had met anti-type as predicted in the Old Testament.

        There has always been the symbols as in the Sanctuary, which were to point to a literal fulfillment in the future.  Moses anointed the altar with blood (Exodus 24:6), and Jesus anointed the Ark of the Covenant with His own blood, the literal fulfillment of the ratification done by Moses.

                "The earthly sanctuary foreshadowed the ratification of the covenant on Calvary, by the sacrifice of Christ. . ." The Sacrificial Priest, page 45.  So why should you be surprised when the LORD has revealed to us that this had a literal fulfillment?  I find this evidence to be quite thrilling, that the LORD would not leave this up to speculation, but long ago placed hard physical evidence that He was a real person, that He died on the Cross in Jerusalem, and that He shed His blood, that literally went down a crack caused by the great earthquake (Matthew 27:51), and fell on the Ark of the Covenant.  This was the ratification of the Old Testament Covenant given to Moses at Sinai.  "This covenant deed was to be ratified with the blood of Christ."  Desire of Ages 659.  This is where type met antitype, in the ratification with the Blood of Christ, where Moses used the blood of animals.

        "When Jesus again met with His disciples, Thomas was with them. . . . And Jesus gave him the evidence which he had desired."   Conflict and Courage, page 328.  Here Jesus gave them hard evidence when Thomas was doubting, why would He not give us hard evidence here at the end of the world?  The answer is that He has given us hard archaeological evidence on which to base our faith.

        "God never asks us to believe, without giving sufficient evidence upon which to base our faith. His existence, His character, the truthfulness of His word, are all established by testimony that appeals to our reason; and this testimony is abundant. Yet God has never removed the possibility of doubt. Our faith must rest upon evidence, not demonstration. Those who wish to doubt will have opportunity; while those who really desire to know the truth will find plenty of evidence on which to rest their faith." Steps to Christ, page 105.

        There are ever those who harbor doubt and unbelief, of those there is nothing that can be done for them.  "But there came the unbelieving question, 'What sign showest Thou then, that we may see, and believe Thee? what dost Thou work?' Had not the Jews just had fresh evidence in the feeding of the five thousand? What work, what sign, could Christ present before them to increase their faith? If evidence should be piled upon evidence, it would not, could not, do more for them than had the evidence which had already been given. It was not evidence that they wanted; it was an excuse to avoid the cross involved in the acceptance of the Gospel."  The Signs of the Times, November 3, 1898.

        "While Jesus hung upon the cross, as the soldier pierced his side with a spear, there came out blood and water, in two distinct streams, one of blood, the other of clear water. The blood was to wash away the sins of those who should believe in His name. The water represents that living water which is obtained from Jesus to give life to the believer." Spiritual Gifts. Volume 1, page 102-103.  "But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.  Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.  The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.John 19:33-35. NIV.

        "Thank God that He who spilled His blood for us, lives to plead it, lives to make intercession for every soul who receives Him . . . . We need to keep ever before us the efficacy of the blood of Jesus. That life-cleansing, life-sustaining blood, appropriated by living faith, is our hope. We need to grow in appreciation of its inestimable value, for it speaks for us only as we by faith claim its virtue, keeping the conscience clean and at peace with God." S.D.A. Bible Commentary Vol. 7A, page 477.  Remember that "He spilled His blood for us," here on this earth, not in heaven.

        "For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world:  but now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself."  Hebrews 9:16.

    "So Christ, the great antitype, Himself both high priest and victim, clothed with his own spotless robes of righteousness, after giving His life for the world, CAST THE VIRTUE OF HIS OFFERING, A CRIMSON CURRENT, IN THE DIRECTION OF THE HOLY PLACE, reconciling man to God through the blood of the cross." Ms 101, 1897, pp 11,12. ("The True High Priest." September, 1897.)

        The evidence is overwhelming to those who have faith to believe, to those who doubt there is nothing to convince them.  They refuse to believe and like the Pharisees of old, "When the Pharisees heard Christ's answer, they marveled, and left Him, and went their way. They were convinced; but, although they marveled at Christ's wisdom, they would not yield. Another evidence of the Saviour's divinity had been given them, but they hardened their hearts against it. And from that time evidence had no effect on their deeply-rooted prejudice."  The Signs of the Times, February 8, 1899

        "Those who desire to doubt will have plenty of room. God does not propose to remove all occasion for unbelief. He gives evidence, which must be carefully investigated with a humble mind and a teachable spirit, and all should decide from the weight of evidence. God gives sufficient evidence for the candid mind to believe; but he who turns from the weight of evidence because there are a few things which he cannot make plain to his finite understanding will be left in the cold, chilling atmosphere of unbelief and questioning doubts, and will make shipwreck of faith."--5 Testimonies 675, 676 (1889).

        Another example was the dispute over Christ speaking of His flesh and blood.  "Go forward to perfection, living in the Word of God, the source of spiritual life. This Word is to be received unto the heart. Christ speaks of it as His flesh and blood. "Whoso eateth My flesh and drinketh My blood, hath eternal life;" He declares, "and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is meat indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My flesh and drinketh My blood dwelleth in Me and I in him." It is in obedience to God's Word that we find eternal life."  Pacific Union Recorder, February 23, 1905

        The end time events have happened much differently than any of us thought or planned.  We have had to be flexible and restudy many subjects, in the light of advancing truth.  The truth about the Ark of the Covenant, in which are contained the Ten Commandments by which the world will be judged.   We are already feeling the breath of the Mark of the Beast Law which goes contrary to the Ten Commandments, and the One World Religion.  The Ark of the Covenant will be brought forth by a humble servant as a Testament to the World, when the Four Angels that are guarding the Ark since Moses placed the Ten Commandments inside, receive permission from on High to release this information to the world.

        This writer is thrilled with the evidence that God the Father has placed His Testament, the hard physical evidence that His Son came to earth and died on a Cross, and shed His blood to save us from our sins.  Bless His Holy Name, Amen.
