What Is The Ark Of The Covenant?

As I began writing, I looked up and asked the Lord, "What is the Ark of the Covenant?" To my surprise, when I picked up my cell phone to research that, a Golden Ark of the Covenant showed up, in the Spirit, on my cell phone. I asked Lord " What does this mean?"  The word " Icon" was given to me. I then looked up the meaning of the word "icon"  in the dictionary. The definition is " a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol." It also comes from the Greek word "eikeni" which means " to be like."
