The Hebrews The Ark and the Wilderness

The Hebrews the Ark and the Wilderness


On January 6, 1982, in the Muslim section at the north wall of the city of Jerusalem, Ron Wyatt entered a cave that contained the Ark of the Covenant.

Archaeologists have searched for the Ark since it was placed in the cave by Jeremiah during Nebuchadnezzar’s siege of Jerusalem in 536 B.C.  The Apocryphal book of Maccabees gives an account of Jeremiah’s activities:

“It was also contained in the same writing, that the prophet, being warned of God, commanded the tabernacle and the ark to go with him, into the mountain, where Moses climbed up. 

And when Jeremy came thither, he found a hollow cave, wherein he laid the tabernacle, and the ark, and the altar of incense, and so stopped the door. 

And some of those that followed him came to mark the way, but they could not find it. Which when Jeremy perceived, he blamed them, saying, As for that place, it shall be unknown until the time that God gather his people again together, and receive them unto mercy.” 2 Maccabees 2:4-8

israel Now, it could be argued that the prophecy spoken by Jeremiah of the gathering of Jacob has been fulfilled since the State of Israel was established in 1948; however, this would not be strictly true. The amateur archaeologist [now deceased] is the only person since Jeremiah to look upon the Ark which he found through divine direction, and his remit was to make his discovery known worldwide, while the Ark remained in its resting place. 

 Four Angels

The clear indicator, that the prophecy of Jeremiah has not been fulfilled can be evidenced in the supernatural events surrounding the discovery of the Ark.

 After entering the narrow cave where the ark rests, Wyatt encountered four angels, whom he says were dressed in ordinary “street clothes.”  Then one of the angels came forward and told Wyatt they had been guarding the Ark since Moses placed the tables of stone in it, and that God wanted all the contents of the cave to be seen at an appointed time; shortly after a law would be passed that would be designed to enforce the ‘mark of the beast’ on the nations. [1] It becomes even more apparent that Jeremiah’s prophecy has not been fulfilled when we consider the events surrounding six men claiming to be descendants of Aaron. 

The Kohanim and the Ark

 According to Ron’s account, in 1995, six Jews who were said to be descendants from the tribe of Levi took it upon themselves, with the knowledge of the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA), to venture into the tunnel leading to the ark.  Their aim was to remove the ark and begin animal sacrifices.  Since the ark is in occupied territory, they felt it necessary to move the Ark to Israeli controlled territory their land.

The men were in contact with others outside the tunnel via two-way radio, they made it about 75 feet into the 375 foot tunnel when they all began screaming. The 6 men died. The  IAA, contacted Ron Wyatt  in the US  and asked him to come to Jerusalem  to remove their bodies, because no one would enter the tunnel. They may have been Kohanim, but they cold  not have been the seed of ancient Israelites.

 The God of Abraham has said: 

“For, lo, the days come, says the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, says the Lord: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it” 


Jacob will be delivered out of the hands of their enemies all over the world and brought to the wilderness where they will be purged from all their uncleanliness [Ezekiel 36]. 

Then the Ark will be revealed, when the ‘whole’ house of Jacob are gathered together, and they shall no longer call the Most High Baal [Lord] but they will call him Ishi “husband.” ” (Hos.2:14-23 GNB). 

The Israeli authorities have denied any knowledge of Ron’s discovery, [apparently for security reasons] but the evidence is too weighty to be false. Throughout his life Ron tried to tell the Christian world that the end-times will not play out as they have traditionally been taught, but that topic will be the subject of another article.
