Ref. Jeremiah 3:16
Then it shall come to pass, when you are multiplied and increased in the land in those days,” says the LORD, “that they will say no more, ‘The ark of the Covenant of the LORD. It shall not come to mind, nor shall they remember it, nor shall they visit it, nor shall it be made anymore.
I thought this passage meant the Ark no longer exists.
It quite possibly doesn’t exist now, and may never be seen on earth again. It hasn’t been seen since Jeremiah’s time (600 BC) and won’t be present in the coming Temple. I was answering a question about making a new one from the perspective of the Temple Institute. They say there’s no plan to make one because the old one still exists and they know where it is.
