What Happened to the Ark

Louis McCall Author Interview

He Chose the Glory details the conditions and storylines surrounding the building of the Ark and how many people were eager to look inside it or treat it as a trophy, only to receive retribution. Why was this an important book for you to write?

This book was important for me to write because most people are ill informed concerning the Ark. In addition, no one knows what happened to the Ark. My book covers that and explains why it disappeared from history without a trace.

Your book is very detailed. What kind of research did you undertake to write this book?

I traveled to Israel and to the place in Judea where the Ark was said to have been in the house of Obed-Edom. I also explored old Jerusalem, within whose walls, in the City of David zone, King David set up the Ark in a new system of worship.

What is a common misconception you feel people have about the Ark of the Covenant?

The misconception people have about the Ark is that it was some kind of talisman as in the fictional movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. King Saul tried to use it that way as a magic charm to defeat his enemies, but that didn’t work and he was killed in battle by suicide and the Ark taken by his Philistine enemies.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

That God honors those that honor Him. This was demonstrated by Obed-Edom, his clan, and descendants who honored God and God, in turn honored them. It is an apt pattern for our lives. The more intriguing take away is that Jesus was the better Ark, but the old Ark had to be taken away so that people didn’t continue to look to it. It simply foreshadowed the Messiah, that is Jesus, who was to come.

History and Prophecies of the Ark!
What was the purpose of the golden Ark of the Covenant? The Ark was one of the most important religious objects in antiquity. Have you ever wondered what became of the Ark? Was it always honored? How did it become a trophy of war in the hands of the enemies of God?
– Could the decision of one man, Obed-Edom, to forsake all for the glory of God change his destiny and the destiny of his family and kin for generations?
– See what God does for the person who honors Him.
– Observe how blessings flow down to the generations of those that honor the Lord.
– What did King David learn from Obed-Edom that changed how worship was done around the Ark?
– Learn the story behind the transition from honoring an object designed by God, the Ark of the Covenant, to the Son of God who was to come down from heaven to establish the new covenant not in animal sacrifices but in His own blood.
– See how the prophets pointed to the new thing God was going to do that would be even better than the Ark of the Covenant and the Temple, which foreshadowed the new thing.
He Chose the Glory is rich in detail and puts into context a tumultuous period leading to the transition to God’s new and better thing. It is concise enough to be read in one sitting.
