Police and Onlookers Discover ‘Lost Ark of the Covenant’ Only a Replica

Prophecy Sign:  Re-emergence of the Ark?

While the Ark in this article is simply a replica, a prophecy from the book of Jeremiah may indicate that the real thing will be made known during last days.  A good guess would be at the dedication of the future Third Temple.

In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land," declares the LORD, "people will no longer say, 'The ark of the covenant of the LORD.' It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made. Jeremiah 3:16 NIV

Police and Onlookers Discover ‘Lost Ark of the Covenant’ Only a Replica
Jerusalem was in momentary shock on Sunday when a pilgrim from the Philippines placed a replica of the Lost Ark of the Covenant in the center of the city, causing commotion and confusion. The replica was complete with the “cherubim” and was coated in the color of gold, JerusalemOnline reported. Police, who are patrolling the Old City and tourist sites in Jerusalem during the heavy tourist traffic period of Sukkot, started asking questions. The pilgrim explained she brought the model of the Lost Ark with her to Israel and will leave it in an Old City Church.

The surveillance state continues to grow across the world.  This hi-tech grid will allow the future Antichrist to have total control over the world.

Declassified info shows FBI's role in warrantless surveillance increased
A sign of the times it is, when a congregation gives a standing ovation when the head of their church outs himself as a homosexual.

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Peter 2:1 NIV

A Catholic priest in Dublin has receiving a standing ovation from members of his church after revealing he is gay during mass. Father Martin Dolan, who has served the inner-city Church of St Nicholas of Myra for the past 15 years, made the unusual step of coming out in support of gay marriage and added: I’m gay myself”. Speaking to the Irish Sun, community youth worker Liz O’Connor said: “We are all very proud of Father Martin. Because he has admitted that he is gay he doesn’t change the person that he was before it.” A source within the Catholic Church said “It was very brave. He said he was gay. That was it...no bones about it.”

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Matthew 24:12 NIV

‘Act of war’: New Charlie Hebdo edition triggers Muslims’ anger, threats
A record 3 million copies of the new edition of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo have appeared on French newsstands, with new caricatures triggering outrage among Muslims all over the world, and threats from radical Islamists. British radical preacher Anjem Choudary, who is allegedly connected with armed militant groups, decried the new edition as an "act of war" and a "blatant provocation."
