Hi there Katelyn,

It's good to hear you love reading about the end times! Glad to have you with us; everyone is friendly so please don't be shy around here.

After being taken out of Israel, the Ark of the Covenant is believed to be hidden in Africa according to Bible scholars.

The Ark of the Covenant, also known as the Ark of the Testimony, is a gold-covered wooden chest described in the Book of Exodus as containing the two stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments, which Moses brought down from Mount Sinai, are written. According to various texts within the Hebrew Bible, the chest also contained Aaron's rod and a pot of manna.

There are many theories as to the current location of the Biblical chest, since being taken. Some of these locations include Mount Nebo in Israel, southern Africa, Ethiopia, Egypt and several possible locations in Europe.

According to the scholars, the Ark is claimed to be guarded by Christian monks in Ethiopia, a country in the Horn of Africa. For centuries, the monks have claimed that the Ark is being guarded at the Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion in Axum, however, no credible evidence has been released to support these claims. Ethiopian Christians say the Ark arrived nearly 3,000 years ago.

The Bible Archaeology, Search & Exploration Institute (BASE), the organization responsible for the renewed interest in the Biblical item, have discovered new evidence that supports one theory about the Ark being taken to Ethiopia.

According to a blog post on the organizations website, "as unusual as this may sound, the BASE team has uncovered compelling evidence that the Ark may well have been spirited up the Nile River to an eventual resting place in the remote highlands of ancient Kush, or modern-day Ethiopia."

New research from the BASE teams suggests that the Ark was taken from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem during the reign of Manasseh. The Ark was taken to a Jewish colony on Elephantine Island in Egypt and then taken down the Nile to Lake Tana in Ethiopia. From there, the Ark is believed to have been moved to Axum, a city in the north of Ethiopia.

Interestingly, the BASE Institute has spoken to a man who claims to be "The Guardian of the Ark of the Covenant". The guardian claims to have spent his life within a fenced boundary that surrounds the church where he serves as the protector of the Biblical Ark. The man stated to the researchers that he would not leave the compound until death, and a new guardian is appointed take over his role. Once appointed, the monks are forbidden from setting foot outside of the chapel grounds until they die.

The man claims to be the only person permitted to view the Ark of the Covenant because it was a holy object according to scripture. He also communicated that he and the villagers are willing to protect the Ark with their lives.

In 2007, a reporter from the Smithsonian approached the man and was told, "I'm the guardian of the Ark, I have no other name."

The BASE Institute does not claim to have found the Ark of the Covenant, however, it did say: "At this juncture, we cannot say with certainty that it is, but neither can we say for certain that it isn't. What we have concluded is that St. Mary's of Zion church in Axum, Ethiopia, is the resting place either of an incredible replica of the biblical Ark of the Covenant, or of the actual Ark of the Covenant itself."

I am hoping Kylie can come home tomorrow or sometime this weekend based on results from post-op medications.

Thank you so much. =)

I really appreciate the response and prayers for Kylie. Her procedure was a huge success, however, we are currently going through the recovery and healing process.

She is a little heart warrior!


The quote from Ephesians is more true today than ever before and is also one of the numerous reasons this website was created.

"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."

We must prepare ourselves for what is coming because the tribulation and the wrath of God is around the corner. This world is populated with workers of darkness, who tempt us with lies and deception through the media and in our churches. The world is in bad shape right now and will continue to host the unrighteous until the King of Kings returns.

Come quickly Lord Jesus!
