The Jeweled Cross and the Ark of the Covenant


By Richard Kieninger


The national headquarters in the capitol city of the Lemurian Empire was built in the shape of a cross lying on its back. The building was seven stories high, almost one mile long, and the gold-plated roof had thirteen huge domes of glass: the one in the center was colorless and clear, and its panes were like the facets of a diamond; two blue glass domes were on each cross arm and one on the upper arm; seven red domes were along the longer bottom arm. If viewed from the air, you would see a large cross with what looked like rubies, blue sapphires and a diamond.


Therefore, the Jeweled Cross is really a depiction in miniature of the national headquarters of the Lemurian Empire in Hamukulia, the capitol city.


The cross was a symbol in many early languages that started out using hieroglyphics. The religious nature of man was represented by the cross. And it derived from when a man would be standing in adoration of something with his arms outstretched, he looked like a cross; so the cross as a religious symbol preceded Christianity by millennia.


That which we call the Ark of the Covenant was created as a sculpture out of 100% gold, and it consisted of a platform on which the figures of two kneeling cherubim were depicted facing one another, their wings spread upward behind them, and their arms stretched toward one another, their hands supporting a shallow pan between them. This pan was known as the mercy seat which, when required, was imbued with a spirit fire, probably by one of several Adepts whose job that was. The fire could be seen by a clairvoyant in the mercy seat. The Ark is just the container in which the gold sculpture was carried. The sculpture itself is more properly known as the Holy of Holies. Over a period of probably centuries, living Masters in Lemuria would exercise their mental abilities by precipitating pure gold out of the ethers. After they had about 1,000 pounds of this gold, it was melted down and used to cast the Holy of Holies.


One of the reasons the Holy of Holies was created early in the history of the Lemurian civilization was for it to be part of a traveling show throughout the primitive valleys of the continent of Mu, and that area occupied about three-quarters of the continent. The Lemurian civilization occupied what we would presently call the northeast quadrant of the continent of Mu. There were many millions of people living in the old tribal valleys, somewhat like primitives today living in the back areas of Brazil even though there is a highly evolved civilization on the coast. Much the same conditions existed for a long time on the continent of Mu. Civilization was evolving in Lemuria and they were trying to get people who were still living in the old valleys interested in the idea of improving themselves and moving into the Lemurian quarter of the continent.


So this traveling show had the Holy of Holies, which was set in a tent inside a tent. It was completely dark inside; and if a person was able to see and describe the spirit fire that was in the pan held by the cherubim figures, then he was especially encouraged to come to the Lemurian civilization.


This was the origin of the tabernacle in the wilderness. Altogether, there were a number of symbols used like the shew bread and the six-branch candlestick and the basin for washing and a large altar for animal sacrifice and a small altar for incense. These symbols were used to conceptualize for the illiterate people in the back areas of the continent certain Universal Laws and an awareness of what the developing civilization of Lemuria was trying to accomplish. There was a description of the tabernacle to be built later by the Jews some 3,200 years ago at the time of Moses.

Before the destruction of Lemuria, the Holy of Holies was taken to Atlantis. Atlantis didn’t really evolve into a civilization for at least 1,000 years after the sinking of Lemuria, but there the Holy of Holies was kept. Before Atlantis sank, it was moved to North Africa and kept there by the Osirian civilization. When the Great Pyramid of Gizeh was built in Egypt, the Holy of Holies was placed in the King’s Chamber of the pyramid, where it remained until Moses was given the secret of how to get into the chamber where it was stored and take it with him to Palestine. The Ark of the Covenant was kept on display under guard in Palestine, and it was carried by Hebrew priests into battle to accompany the Jewish troops and bring “God’s power” against the enemy. However, putting this talisman at risk eventually resulted in its capture when the Philistines defeated the Jews shortly before Saul became king. After seven months, they sent it back on a cart drawn by two cows with no driver, and it came to be stored for a generation in Gibeah. King David brought it to the City of David with great celebration, and he conceived the plan to build a temple in Jerusalem to safeguard the Ark and incorporate into the temple (finally built by Solomon) all the features of the tabernacle tent show of ancient Lemuria. The Ark was concealed during the Babylonian victory over Israel and the captivity of the Jews. After the return of the Jews to Palestine and the reconstruction of the Temple, the Ark remained there until it disappeared the day of the Crucifixion, whereupon it was brought to the northern part of Egypt. A century later, it was moved to the Pyrenees Mountains, and that’s where it is today. Of course, there were a lot of competing philosophies that would have liked to have gotten hold of the Ark over the millennia because it had important value as a revered religious relic. Presumably, it’s to be moved to the Island of Philadelphia sometime right after the rearrangement of the land masses.


QUESTION:  You said the gold was precipitated by Masters. Did they also fashion the Holy of Holies?


RICHARD:    I don’t know that those Masters were necessarily great sculptors. Masters usually don’t stay Masters in incarnation for very long—they go on to other things. Maybe there were some Eleventh Degree Adepts who helped to precipitate gold on occasion. It was kind of an interesting exercise for a couple of centuries I suppose, to accumulate that much poundage of gold. It usually took eight or ten people to move the Ark from one place to another, so it is quite heavy.
