The Arc of Covenant


The History of The Valley of Lot

04/04/2006

I am putting this info out in regards to a recent Planetary Healing Session*, where we encountered 'The Arc of the Covenant'.

After doing some research in scriptures from sacred books, and references to sacred writings, this is what I found.

Sodom and Gomorrah and The Lake of Lot (Dead Sea) Quote German archaeologist Werner Keller as follows; Together with the base of this mighty fissure, which runs precisely through this area, the Valley of Siddim, including Sodom and Gomorrah, plunged one day into the abyss. Their destruction came about through a great earthquake which was probably accompanied by explosions, lightning, issue of natural gas and general conflagration.


Werner Keller ''Und die Bibel hat doch recht ''(The Bible as History; a Confirmation of the Book of Books), New York: William Morrow, 1964 p. 75-76.As a matter of fact, the Lake of Lot, or the Dead Sea as it is otherwise known, is located right on the top of an active seismic region, that is, an earthquake zone: The base of the dead sea is located with a tectonic rooted downfall.


This valley is located in a tension stretching between the Taberiye Lake in the north, and mid of Arabah Valley in the south. "Le Monde de la Bible", Archeologie et Histoire, July-August 1993.The event was expressed as "we rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer" in the last part of the verse. This is in all probability meant to be the volcanic explosion that took place on the banks of the Lake of Lot, and because of which the rocks and stones that erupted were in a "baked form". (The same event is related in the 173rd verse of Surat ash-Shuara as "We rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!")

In relation to this subject, Werner Keller writes; The subsidence released volcanic forces that had been lying dormant deep down along the whole length of the fracture. In the upper valley of the Jordan near Bashan there are still towering craters of extinct volcanoes; great stretches of lava and deep layers of basalt have been deposited on the limestone surface.

Werner Keller ''Und die Bibel hat doch recht'' (The Bible as History; a Confirmation of the Book of Books), New York: William Morrow, 1964, p. 76These lava and basalt layers constitute the greatest evidence that a volcanic explosion and earthquake had once taken place here.

The catastrophe depicted in the following expression as "we rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer" in the Qur'an most probably points to this volcanic explosion, and God knows best. The expression "When Our Decree issued, We turned (the cities) upside down" which occurs in the same verse, must be referring to the earthquake which caused volcanoes to erupt over the surface of the earth with devastating impact, and to the fissures and debris brought by it, and only God knows the truth of it.


The "obvious signs" conveyed by the Lake of Lot are indeed very interesting. In general, the events which are related in the Qur'an take place in the Middle East, the Arabian Peninsula and Egypt. Right in the middle of these lands, is the Lake of Lot. The Lake of Lot, as well as the incidents that have taken place around it, deserves attention geologically. The Lake is approximately 400 metres below the surface of the Mediterranean. Since the deepest place in the Lake is 400 metres, the bottom of the Lake is 800 metres below the surface of the Mediterranean.


This is the lowest point on the earth. In other areas which are lower than sea level, the depth is at most 100 metres. Another property of the Lake of Lot is that the salt content of its water is very high, the density being nearly 30 %. Because of this, no living organism, such as fish or moss, can survive in this lake. This is why the Lake of Lot is called the "Dead Sea" in Western literature. The incident of Lot's people, which is recounted in the Qur'an, occurred around 1800 BC according to estimates.


Based on his archaeological and geological researches, the German researcher Werner Keller noted that the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were in fact located in the Siddim Valley which was the region at the furthest and lowest end of the Lake of Lot, and that there were once big and widely inhabited sites in those regions. The most interesting structural characteristic of the Lake of Lot is an evidence showing how the disaster incidence recounted in the Qur'an took place: On the eastern shore of the Dead Sea the peninsula of el-Lisan protrudes like a tongue far into the water. El-Lisan means "the tongue" in Arabic.

Unseen from the land the ground falls away here under the surface of the water at a prodigious angle, dividing the sea into two parts. To the right of the peninsula the ground slopes sharply down to a depth of 1200 feet. On the left of the peninsula the water remains remarkably shallow. Soundings taken in the last few years established depths of only fifty to sixty feet. That extraordinary shallow part of the Dead Sea, from the peninsula el-Lisan to the southernmost tip, was the Valley of Siddim .Ibid, pp. 73-74


Some of the remains of the city, which had slipped into the lake, were found on the banks of the lake. These remains showed that the people of Lot had quite a high standard of lifeWerner Keller noted that this shallow part, which was discovered to have formed subsequently, was the outcome of the aforementioned earthquake and the massive collapse this earthquake had caused. This was the place where Sodom and Gomorrah were situated, that is, where Lut's people lived.


Once, it was possible to cross this region by walking. However, now, the Valley of Siddim, where Sodom and Gomorrah were once situated, is covered by the flat surface of the lower part of the Dead Sea. The collapse of the base as a result of the dreadful catastrophe that came to pass in the beginning of the 2nd millennium BC, caused salt water from the north to flow into this recently formed cavity and filled the basin with salty water. The traces of the Lot’s people are visible…


When one takes a rowing boat across the Lake of Lot to the southernmost point, if the sun is shining in the right direction, one sees something quite fantastic. Some distance from the shore and clearly visible under the surface of the water, there are the outlines of the forests which the extraordinarily high salt content of the Dead Sea preserved. The trunks and roots in the shimmering green water are very ancient. The Siddim valley, where these trees were once in blossom green foliage covered their twigs and branches, was one of the most beautiful locations in the region.

The mechanical aspect of the disaster that befell people of Lot is revealed by the researches of the geologists. These reveal that the earthquake which destroyed the people of Lut came about in consequence of quite a long crack in the earth (a fault line), along the 190 kilometres distance making up the bed of the River Sheri'at. River Sheri'at makes a fall of 180 metres in total. Both this and the fact that the Lake of Lot is 400 metres below sea level are two important pieces of evidence showing that an enormous geological event has taken place here.


The interesting structure of River of Sheri'at and the Lake of Lot make up only a small part of the crack or split passing from this region of the earth. The condition and length of this crack have only recently been discovered. The fault starts from the outskirts of Mount Taurus, stretches to the southern shores of the Lake of Lot and proceeds over the Arabian desert to the Gulf of Aqaba and continues across the Red Sea, ending up in Africa.


Along the length of it, strong volcanic activities are observed. Black basalt and lava exist in the Galilee Mountains in Israel, high plain regions of Jordan, the Gulf of Aqaba and other areas nearby.All these remains and geographical evidences show that a catastrophic geological event took place in the Lake of Lot. Werner Keller writes, Together with the base of this mighty fissure, which runs precisely through this area, the Valley of Siddim, including Sodom and Gomorrah, plunged one day into the abyss.


Their destruction came about through a great earthquake which was probably accompanied by explosions, lightning, issue of natural gas and general conflagration. The subsidence released volcanic forces that had been lying dormant deep down along the whole length of the fracture. In the upper valley of the Jordan near Bashan there are still towering craters of extinct volcanoes; great stretches of lava and deep layers of basalt have been deposited on the limestone surface.Ibid, pp. 75-76

National Geographic makes the following comment on December 1957; The mount of Sodom, a barren wasteland, rises sharply above the dead sea. No one has ever found the destroyed cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, but scholars believe that they stood in the Valley of Siddim across from these cliffs. Possibly flood waters of the Dead Sea engulfed them following an earthquake.G. Ernest Wright, "Bringing Old Testament Times to Life", National Geographic,
