    The Florida Boys, among others, sang a song called Scars In The Hands Of Jesus written by Marijohn Wilkin (1920-2006). The song opens with these words:

    Now I know that it is just a song. But is the Ark of the Covenant in Heaven?

    So my question is about Revelation 11:19:

    Revelation 11:19 (KJV) And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

    Interesting question and thread!

    Based on Revelation 11:19, the ark WILL be in heaven. Is it there now? We don't have any evidence either way. It could be there now, or could be moved there in the future.

    I think more likely the ark in Rev 11 is the true heavenly ark which was the model for the OT ark.

    Heb 8:4-5 HCSB - Now if He were on earth, He wouldn't be a priest, since there are those offering the gifts prescribed by the law. These serve as a copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was warned when he was about to complete the tabernacle. For God said, Be careful that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown to you on the mountain.​
