6.2 – ALIENS & THE LOST ARK (12.6.13)


The Jordan River, a 200-mile border separating the present-day Kingdom of Jordan from Israel and the West Bank. In 1400 BC, this waterway represented one of the final obstacles to the wandering Israelites’ long-awaited entrance into the Promised Land.

“The Ark of the Covenant comes into its own when Joshua is given the task of leading Israel across the Jordan River. And the story is that the Ark of the Covenant would go first and be carried into the Jordan River. The water would stop flowing.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

“Some energy came forth from the Ark, causing the waters to literally stop and ascend, and therefore creating dry land for the entire children of Israel to pass on off into the Holy Land.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

But if this biblical story is true, what kind of power could the Ark of the Covenant have possessed that would cause a raging river to stand still?

“What if the people who wrote these stories were simply reporting on what they were actually seeing? If that’s true, then the Ark of the Covenant clearly represents a technology that is more advanced than anything we have now.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“If you want to part water, maybe a good way to do it would be with high-speed winds. ‘Cause if you blow enough air, you can get the water out of the way and you can actually maybe even form those two walls of water.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

“There’s some kind of technology that they’re using and it’s so that they can accomplish their goals and continue on their journey, and they’re able to use this extraterrestrial technology to do it.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

According to the Bible’s Book of Joshua, the Ark of the Covenant once again proved a powerful ally when the Israelites arrived on the western banks of the Jordan River, set on conquering the seemingly impenetrable walled city of Jericho.

“The reputation of the Israelites preceded them. People were terrified. They have heard the rumors of the power of this great and awesome ark. They now come to the city of Jericho. The people were commanded by God, march around the city walls.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“They march around the city once on the first day. The next day, they do the very same thing. The third, fourth, fifth and the sixth day is the same thing. On the seventh day, they march around and then they blow the trumpets and all the people shout.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

“Between the marching of the feet, the sounding of the rams’ horns, the shofar, and with some power not described from the Ark, enabled the big stone mighty walls of the city of Jericho to somehow be vibrated with a earthquake-type force which caused them to collapse.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“When I hear that they had to walk around Jericho seven times and then the trumpets were the ones that allowed for those walls to crumble, one would have to ask yourselves, ‘Was there something else to it?’”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“Knocking something down like a wall with pressure is not inconceivable. So, you could imagine trying to do this. Now, when you look at things, think of standard examples that we experience. When the space shuttle lands, we get the sonic boom, and you can feel it rattling the walls and you can actually hear it. That’s far away. Imagine getting a sonic boom closer to the object. You might be able to do significant damage to the wall.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

Could the Israelites actually have witnessed an advanced technology, beyond even our own modern capabilities, a machine that could instantly part waters and bring down stone walls? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the best evidence that the Ark of the Covenant may have held alien technology can be found by studying events that took place 300 years after the sacking of Jericho, when the Ark was stolen. According to the Book of Samuel, when the Israelites went to battle with the mighty Philistine army around 1100 BC, they brought out the Ark of the Covenant to aid them once again. But God had not given them instructions to do so. Angered by their presumption that they could use the Ark as a weapon without His orders, He awarded victory to the Philistines, who captured it as a trophy.

“The Bible records very strange things then started to happen. Death, sickness broke out amongst the Philistines. Now, in ancient times, they had no understanding of energy or what we would maybe consider something similar to a radioactive sickness. They considered this to be displeasure of the god.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“They placed the ark next to a statue of one of their gods, Dagon. And they leave and when they come back, they see that Dagon’s head has been decapitated and his hands have been taken off. So, they say, ‘We’ve got to get rid of this thing.’”

Rev. Michael J.S. Carter, M.Div.
(Author, Alien Scriptures)

“And so, they loaded the Ark of the Covenant on a cart. And sent it off in the direction of an Israeli village called Beth Shemish. Of course, everyone ran up to look at the Ark. And as a result, the Bible says 70 men died when they looked at the ark. For those who have been fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark, and remember the last scene when Indy is shouting “Don’t look, don’t look, don’t look.”  That’s where that story comes from.”

– Rev. Barry H. Downing
(Author, The Bible and Flying Saucers)

The Old Testament contains numerous other examples of the ark’s devastating powers. And ultimately depicts it as a deadly device capable of striking down anyone who does not follow God’s rules.

“When Aaron, who was the high priest, his two sons approached to give an offering, it’s stated that literally two beams of fire came forth from the Ark and went up their nostrils and burnt them from the inside, leaving their entire outsides intact.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

Beams of fire? Burning people from inside? Why would an instrument of God contain such deadly powers? If the Ark of the Covenant was truly divine, why would it strike down two people who were simply trying to make an offering?

“Wherever it showed up, people would all of a sudden die. In my opinion it was a storage container that housed some type of a nuclear device. And having a nuclear device in the hands of a technologically primitive society would result in people dying left and right. Naturally, people would refer to that as the wrath of God, when in reality it’s nothing else but the wrath of atomic power.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that the Ark of the Covenant actually contained a nuclear device? One that was brought to Earth not by God but by visitors from another planet?

“It’s possible that the Ark of the Covenant was some type of super weapon that was being controlled or guided from an extraterrestrial.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

Was the Ark of the Covenant actually a sophisticated, high-tech device ancient Israelites were unable to control it? Perhaps. But of all the Ark’s alleged powers, there was one that was the most incredible its ability to communicate directly with God.
