Ron Wyatt noticed a dried, black substance in an earthquake crack in the roof, above the Ark of the Covenant.
He noticed that this black substance was also on the lid of the cracked stone casing.
Obviously, this substance had dripped from the crack in the roof, and provision had been made for it to land on the Ark of the Covenant, as the stone lid had been cracked and moved aside.
Ron Wyatt wondered what substance could be so sacred, that God made provision for it to land on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.
He remembered the earthquake crack at the foot of the cross hole, and suddenly an awesome realization as to what had happened, came over him.
Ron Wyatt traced the earthquake crack, and indeed it was the same crack as the one at the cross hole.
The dried black substance in the crack was tested and proved to be blood, apparently the blood of Jesus Christ.
The Bible says that when Jesus died there was an earthquake and the rocks were rent (Matt. 27:51).
A Roman soldier speared Christ in His side in order to make sure He was dead, and blood and water poured out (John 19:34).
Ron Wyatt discovered that this same blood and water poured down through the earthquake crack and fell upon the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.
TO FIND THE ARK, JUST GO TO THE FOOT OF THE CROSS.
"The ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them... to search out a resting place for them."
One of the tasks was therefore to go before God’s people to lead them to a place which would provide rest...
"When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God... ye shall remove from your place, and go after it." (Joshua 3:3).
So could this message still be relevant today?
Where is the final "resting place" God wants to lead His people?
The place where they could obtain true freedom and peace at heart?
To the foot of the cross.
How beautiful, if the purpose of the Ark is to guide us to our resting place, and it traveled all the way to Skull Hill, right at the foot of the cross!"
