The basis for one of the theories of how Israel lost the Ark of the Covenant is found in 2 Chronicles 12:9:

So Sesac king of Egypt departed from Jerusalem, taking away the treasures of the house of the Lord, and of the king's house, and he took all with him, and the golden shields that Solomon had made...

Why God permitted the Ark (possibly) to be stolen by Sesac is inferred in two earlier verses:

2 And in the fifth year of the reign of Roboam, Sesac king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem (because they had sinned against the Lord)

5 And Semeias the prophet came to Roboam, and to the princes of Juda, that were gathered together in Jerusalem, fleeing from Sesac, and he said to them: Thus saith the Lord: You have left me, and I have left you in the hand of Sesac.

Throughout the history of Israel, God, while not completely abandoning his chosen people, permits "the world" to correct their course, giving them up to captivity and attack "because they had sinned against the Lord," and because "You have left me...I have left you...

("I have left you" - a direct inference to the disappearance of the Ark of the Covenant which, for the Israelites, was the direct earthly manifestation of God in their midst.)

It is hard not to see the parallel happening today as the latter day kings and queens of Egypt and Babylon take "away the treasures of the house of the Lord," by forbidding us to enter "the house of the Lord," wherein lives the greatest treasure, the true Ark: the True Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ - albeit under cover of a pandemic decree. 

But like ancient Israel, which God permitted to be punished for its unfaithfulness, today it appears God is permitting the same. 



So what grounds do we have to complain to the Caesars, Nebuchadnezzars, and the baby-killing servants of Moloch, i.e. the new crushing dictators of the secular kingdoms, to give us our churches and sacraments back when we, the  MAJORITY of Catholics, have already traded in the Golden Ark of the New Covenant (our Catholic Faith) for an Ark of Tin and Trash of our making?

There is nothing left to do but to prepare for Chastisement. Perhaps a good place to start is to read the rest of 2 Chronicles. Perhaps God will still spare the faithful He once did. 

P.S. Some faithful Catholics may take offense to this post. However, When God permitted the chastisements of Ancient Israel, God did not separate the weeds from the wheat. The whole nation suffered together - while always preserving that "faithful remnant." Let's make sure we're the remnant and offer the chastisement for the conversion of others.

  1. This is prophetically true and soon and very soon Chastisement will be here. If only we could repent and change our evil ways, may be things would change for our modern Nineveh.
