Inside the ark were 3 things. The 2 tables of the Law. A golden pot of manna and Aaron's rod that budded. The Ark of the Covenant was where Gods justice and judgement toward sin was satisfied. It is referred to almost 200 times in the Old Testament. 1 Chr 6:41 "Now therefore, arise, O LORD God, to Your resting place, you and the ark of Your strength. Let Your priests, O LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and let Your saints rejoice in goodness.
Christ In The Sepulcher Guarded by Angels.... William Blake. Exodus 25:22, "And there I will meet with you; and from above the Mercy Seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak to you about all that I will give you in commandment for the sons of Israel." God's Word is fulfilled in Christ.
