The Ark was not destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar, he couldn’t find it. See Jeremiah 52:13-19. It seems to have been raptured up to heaven as it appears again in heaven in Revelation 11:19. Is this true?

First, concerning the Ark of the Covenant, if you will reread the passage you asked me to read, you will see that the text nowhere states that Nebuchadnezzar could not find the Ark of the Covenant. II Kings 25 and II Chronicles 36 list the things that Nebuchadnezzar took with him to Babylon. What they did not take to Babylon was destroyed by fire. In fact, II Chronicles 36:19 says that Nebuchadnezzar burned the Temple down with fire and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof. All Nebuchadnezzar had to do was strip the gold off the Ark and the rest of the wood was burned with fire. If the Ark was raptured into heaven, the Bible would clearly have told us so. Your reference to Revelation 11:19 does not prove your point since you are making an unwarranted assumption that that is the same Ark of the Covenant that Moses actually made; but that is not the case. It should be remembered that the whole Tabernacle structure that Moses made was a copy of the Tabernacle already existing in heaven. It is the heavenly Tabernacle that Christ entered into, a Tabernacle not made with human hands (Hebrews 9:11-12).
