A member of our Tarshish Tribune group http://nazarenespace.ning.com/group/tarshishtribune, Wayne, posted a story the Worlld Net Daily went with most of the last half of the week: that the patriarch of the Orthodox Ethiopian Church told the Pope he has possession of the Ark of the Covenant.
Patriarch Abuna Pauolos then told the Italian press -- "Soon the world will be able to admire the Ark of the Covenant described in the Bible as the container of the law that God delivered to Moses and the center of searches and studies for centuries." Now I'm sure the patriarch is a good guy, but call me a doubting Thomas, I was sure he had bitten off a little more than he could chew. And, today, on Shabbat, the World Net Daily reported the patriarch had retreated on his statement.
The patriarch said he himself had seen the Ark in the mountain top Orthodox Ethiopian Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Ethiopia. However, he has now decided we can't see what he says he has seen. And that is because its fake or the patriarch really hasn't seen anything at all. I won't believe I have seen the real Ark of the Covenant until I see the stone carved Ten Commandments, Aaron's rod ablooming, and some manna.
With that said, I have a pretty good idea where the Ark of the Covenant is! ADONAI told Yeshua who told His angel who told my Apostle Yochanan who told me that the Ark of the Covenant is in the Temple of God in heaven (Revelation 11:19).And we all know this talmid's testimony is true (John 21:24)) and carries much more authority than some patriarch of Orthodox Ethiopian Church.
