Tablets In The Ark

"There was nothing in the ark save the two tables of stone, which Moses put there at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of the land of Egypt. Do you believe the Ark or these tablets of stone will ever be found again?

\\I dont know,the ark was made as a place for Gods spirit to dwell.he now dwells within believers.I believe people put way too much meaning into many different things.the ark ,noahs ark,shroud of terain.I guess having God living inside you aint enough for some people.

You don't actually think the Holy Spirit was confined to the Ark of the Covenant, do you? This seems to be what you are saying.

In any case, regarding these and other relics, if our faith is based on historical incidents, it should not surprise us that physical traces of these events and persons remain today.

Jeremiah 3 (especially verse 16) speaks of a time when people will return to God, he will send them shepherds after his own heart, and people will no longer talk about the Ark of the Covenant, nor make another one.

This implies that by that time,
1) the Ark would be lost
2) it would not be found again
3) no replacement would be made
That is, it will no longer matter anymore.

\\//Tradition says it is at the Church of St. Mary of Zion in Axum.//

If it's not there, is Tradition wrong?

Cluny, where is Tradition? Can it be studied?

If you're studying the Bible, you're studying tradition.

To a certain extent we ALL rely on tradition. Where do you think we got the idea that Betsy Ross stitched up the first flag?

There is a long-established historical tradition (not to be confused with the tradition of the Church) that the Ark is in Axum, with nothing to oppose this tradition. But it makes no difference to anyone's salvation if it is or is not.

Jeremiah 3:15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it, neither shall they visit it, neither shall that be done any more.

17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD, and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

Revelation 11:19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Actually, elsewhere the Bible says the Ark contained a vessel of manna and Aaron's rod that blossomed and other relics that escape my mind at the moment.

That's what the Ark was basically: a reliquary.

Since the Ethiopia's was the only other royal house that worshipped YHVH, it makes sense that it would be sent to Ethiopia for safe-keeping.

Tradition says it is at the Church of St. Mary of Zion in Axum.

Ron Wyatt claimed to have found the Art under Jerusalem. He also claimed to have found Noah's Ark.

To answer the question, no.

I would think by now those tablets have de-sent-ta-grated...how do you spell that correctly? Meaning they have rotted away because they are now written upon our hearts instead of on stone.

The Ethiopian Orthodox Church claims to have the ark of the covenant.

Look it up at wikipedia.
