Chromosomes, Somatids, and the Blood of Christ
As far as possible, Anchor Stone strives to make public all information available about the discoveries of Ron Wyatt. The only material we hold back is information that would in some way jeopardize our ability to pursue our ongoing exploration and investigation, which might place some of our associates in danger, or in cooperation with legal authorities. At the same time we work very hard to confirm all information to make sure that what we do share is accurate to the best of our knowledge. This is why I am writing this article today.
There has always been a group of critics that have circulated inaccurate information and false reports about Ron and his work. Over the years we have come to expect this. However, since his death some of the people that were originally involved in his work have begun to mislead people in regards to certain subjects. They have done this in a number of ways. One is to simply leave out certain information which by its omission can lead to a false conclusion. Another method is to release new information and then claim that this is something that Ron Wyatt always believed.
Shortly after Ron’s death I received a call from a friend who told me that one of Ron’s past associates was telling people that we should immediately stop talking about chromosomes in relation to blood tests associated with the Ark of the Covenant discovery. The only explanation given was that there was new information that would be forthcoming later. However the explanation did not come in a timely manner and months went by. In the meantime it was being strongly implied that this new information would somehow overshadow or possibly invalidate the information Ron had shared publicly about the chromosome count of the blood found on the Ark of the Covenant.
After making a few phone calls I found out that the new information was the somatid theory that has now been on the wyattmuseum web site for almost 2 years. The gist of this theory is that all living things have within them a “spark of life” and that this spark is evidenced by what are called somatids. Without going into an extensive history on somatids I will simply say that a man by the name of Gaston Naessens, who developed the dark-field microscope, discovered these amazing little objects. This special type of microscope is required to see somatids in a sample. Somatids are not visible with a standard laboratory microscope. There are currently a number of theories as to exactly what they are and the mechanism by which they function but what seems clear is that these objects are found within the bodily fluids of living organisms.
During his many public talks on the subject of the blood sample that he took, Ron often mentioned that when the blood was tested it was found to be “alive”. Other times he said it a bit differently; he stated that when viewed under a microscope the blood of Christ was “alive”. Over the years many have wanted to understand what Ron meant by this.
The way somatids have been applied to the Ark of the Covenant discovery is that WAR has claimed that they took a sample of the blood of Christ, rehydrated it and found within the rehydrated sample a number of somatids. They then submit that this is proof that the blood of Christ is alive and that this is what Ron meant when he stated that the blood was found to be alive when examined under a microscope.
This new information was released after Ron’s death, although the somatid test was performed before Ron’s death. I will point out here that Ron was talking about the blood being alive long before this somatid test was performed. In fact I have been unable to find (and I would welcome a copy if someone can provide one) a single instance when Ron mentioned somatids when talking about the blood tests. Perhaps he did but I have not heard it.
However I have several examples of where Ron ties the concept of the blood being alive to the presence of living white blood cells within the sample and ultimately to the results of the chromosome test that was performed. This is also consistent with our personal conversations on the subject.
So here we have a theory about somatids being promoted as what Ron Wyatt really meant when he talked about live blood, while at the same time we have been told to “stop talking about chromosomes”. Why is this happening? And further, what difference does it make? Cannot both be true?
I personally have no doubt that both are true. The blood of Christ, which is alive, would have somatids in it. However the presence of somatids does not prove anything. Every person has somatids in their blood. So the blood sample shown on the wyattmuseum web site could be anyone’s blood. But that is not all. A number of researchers tell us that somatids are also found in freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juice! So does that prove that the fruit juice in question is alive? On one level it does…. but is this the concept that Ron was trying to share? I don’t think so.
When I began to speak publicly on the discoveries of Ron Wyatt, one subject always caused me to feel intimidated. It was the subject of the blood of Christ and the chromosome test that Ron spoke about. Even if I did not mention it myself, people in the audience would invariably ask about it and expected an answer. Because I was lacking in information about chromosomes and this type of blood test I discussed the subject with Dr. Eugene Dunkley who is an expert in genetics. Here is part of what I learned.
In order to perform a chromosome count (karyotype) test on human blood you must be able to isolate and culture living white blood cells. This is because white blood cells are the only cells in the blood that carry genetic material. These cells must also be alive because they have to be cultured so they mature and divide. At a certain stage of cell division the chromosomes within the cell become visible under a microscope. When this stage is reached a dye or chemical is added that stops the growth cycle. Then the chromosomes are counted by sight through a microscope.
As I stated earlier, the blood must contain living white blood cells. Best case scenario, blood cells can live outside of the body approximately two weeks. A sample older than this would not contain living cells so there would be no way to perform a karyotype test. This is the reason Ron so specifically pointed out that the blood of Christ was alive. Even though the dried blood sample was 2000 years old, when rehydrated and examined under a microscope, it contained living cells…. including white blood cells. The microscope used in the lab that tested the blood was not a dark-field microscope and so any somatids present would not even be visible!
The very fact that the blood of Christ was alive after 2 millennia is nothing short of a miracle. However it is in line with Scripture which speaks of Christ in Psalms 16:10 this way, “For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.” Since the Bible tells us in Leviticus 17:11 that, “….the life of the flesh is in the blood.”, we see that the true blood of Christ would be expected to be as alive today as it was 2000 years ago.
But the question still must be addressed, “What difference does it make, chromosomes or somatids? Both testify to the blood of Christ being alive in harmony with Scripture.”
That is true, but to promote the somatids, as WAR has encouraged, to the exclusion of the chromosomes leaves out a very important testimony; one that Ron Wyatt believed and I believe is one of the most important testimonies of the blood. The results of the chromosome test conclusively affirms the identity of this man as the Christ because it testifies that he was the product of a virgin birth!
Under normal circumstances all human beings have 46 chromosomes…. 23 from their mother and 23 from their father. There are 22 pairs of autosomes which determine things such as our height, hair and eye color, etc. The 23rd pair is the sex determinant pair. They consist of either “X” or “Y” chromosomes. The mother only has “X” chromosomes. The father has both “X” and “Y” chromosomes.
If the sex-determinant pair is matched “X-X”, the child is a female. If “X-Y”, the child is a male. Thus we see that the single chromosome provided by the father in this chromosome pair determines the gender of the child. When the blood sample Ron Wyatt took from the crack in the rock ceiling above the Mercy Seat was tested, it contained 24 chromosomes…. 23 from the mother and one “Y” chromosome from the father, 24 chromosomes.
As Dr. Eugene Dunkley states in his article on the genetics of the blood of Christ, 24 chromosomes is exactly what would be expected if a man was born of a virgin. There are 23 chromosomes from the mother and a “Y” chromosome from a father. But that father cannot be a human father because the other 22 chromosomes on the father’s side are missing. Therefore the existence of a “Y” chromosome is at the very least a mystery, if not a miracle.
But there is more. In the 12 years since I first heard of the work of Ron Wyatt, I have listened to his critics say some pretty incredible things in an attempt to dissuade people from believing in his discoveries. But there is one incredible claim that specifically applies to this discussion.
Ron Wyatt found the Ark of the Covenant in 1982. Over the next 17 years, until his death in 1999, Ron spent much time in the caves in that area of the Calvary escarpment. Critics have actually claimed that if Ron ever brought out an “Ark of the Covenant” or a set of stone tablets claiming they were the Ten Commandment stones, the likelihood was that he manufactured them in that cave during those 17 years.
Incredible, huh? But you know something, a lot of people will choose to believe that. And even if they don’t want to believe that, it will raise an element of doubt in their mind that could sour the testimony that God wants to give when He brings these things forth. The truth is, since no one knows exactly what the real Ark of the Covenant looks like, it is possible that someone could make a fake ark and pass it off as the real thing.
I don’t know where they would obtain that much gold but it is within the realm of possibility….. especially if the devil is helping you. And it is also possible to make a fake set of Ten Commandments for the same reasons. So when these things are revealed, how can the discovery be authenticated?
We have seen recently, with some claimed Bible archaeology discoveries (James Ossuary), that ancient artifacts can be faked and that people are very skeptical if the evidence of authenticity is not iron-clad. So how can the discovery of the Ark and tables of stones be authenticated? BY THE BLOOD!
Clever men can make a fake ark and deceive people. They can make a fake set of commandment stones and pass them off as the real thing. But even with today’s technology men cannot make fake human blood. The blood found on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant, tested in a forensic manner, will provide the authenticity needed to convince even the most skeptical BUT honest-hearted critic.
I submit that when God gave the Ark discovery to Ron Wyatt, at the same time He provided the key to authenticating it beyond any reasonable doubt. This was necessary because this will be part of God’s last plea to a dying world…. that by His blood He has atoned for our sins and that this atonement was placed upon the Mercy Seat as an eternal living testimony of what He did at Calvary.
Please don’t tell us to stop talking about the chromosomes. If we don’t talk about them, I believe the very stones will cry out!

This is the most compelling and fascinating information I have ever read, Mankind, with his puny abilities and his desperately sinful heart will inevitably and undoubtedly do all he (she) can to continue to promote satan’s agenda of lies. Look how long it took from the first modern discovery of Noah’s ark until it was made public. And STILL the vast majority of people are ignorant of it or categorically deny that it is, or could be, true. Because they don’t WANT to believe there IS a God/Creator, despite the overwhelming physical evidence and how ludicrous the “scientific” theories of evolution are.

Thank you for your comments! You are right, the world doesn’t WANT to know the truth in many cases. But we have to keep presenting it to find those who ARE searching.

Thank you for your continued support of Ron’s work.
Personally, I feel he was definitely a messenger of the Lord.
Bless all of you keeping this site up.

This is the most compelling scientific evidence that authenticates an archaeological discovery. If the critics delve too deep, I am sure they will prove themselves out because in the war between Truth and lies,Truth is the ultimate winner. 1John 5 : 8 says There are three that bear witness: the Spirit, the Water and the Blood, and their testimony is one!

I have had blood tests done with dark field microscopy also known as live blood cell analysis, because I have a genetic blood clotting disorder and I have seen the somatids in my own blood and I have the photos to prove it-how cool is that-no how cool is He!!!

What is so damaged in some people that they will not search for the truth. Why are they willing to dismiss evidence and risk their eternal life with our creator. When I hear a unbeliever, many times I hear contempt in their words. Why? If they don’t believe that God exists, why are most so angry when they speak of him? Many will say it is because religious fanatics try to make them believe. I have never known anyone who has tried to persuade me to believe in God by acting vulgar, rude and to criticize me. Yet whenever someone has tried to persuade me to think that God does not exist, they have done so by put downs, vulgar insults, disgust and contempt.

God bless all who support Ron’s work. We know God has given him heavenly reward.
Our work is to inform the world of Gods proofs in these LastDays. To awaken those who are slumbering in sin, that God our Father lives, that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and that through the Holy Ghost we can know the truth in all things.

Yes Evelyn it is amazing that they use the Lords name in vain and with curses, yet profess he does not exist.
When working with others who swear because of frustration or anger, I turn tables and I use their name when upset! Example, “Bob damn it!” Or Bob Smith!!!! Smashed my thumb!!
They are confused at first. Then I ask do you like me using your name in a curse does it offend you?
“Well it offends me when you use profanity and I know it does God. Until you respect I will use your name to swear, everytime you disrespect God.”
It works well especially if friend._

Hey I want to say that yes I just recently found a video on YouTube posted a year ago so sometime in 2019 and it was Ron Wyatt talking about the blood and the somatids and the chromosomes. It was one of the channels that has more than one of Ron’s videos. I have a new YouTube account so I don’t know where this video is but I can assure you it exists. He is standing at a podium and someone took some editing liberty with it so it is not a complete original.

gosh this is very exciting..as I’ve been forwarding the “the ark & the blood” to all my FB friends..a great witnessing tool just forwarding this video..short enough to get them to reconsider….so hey please do what I do…do your part & watch God work mightily in your people & perhaps they too will forward as well..

On the youtube-channel Truth is Christ all the Ron Wyatt-investigations are collected for easy confirmation for anybody doubting the truth from YeHoVaH, the Creator of the world, and His Son YeHoShua, our Saviour. Kevin Fisher restored my faith in these facts after the let-down by Walter Veith who denied the findings by Ron Wyatt and instead pulled my attention towards Rome and the wickedness amongst the antichrists all the time. No man will no longer have more authority in my life than God the Creator and His Son who came to earth for our salvation, and I am now convinced, after 40 years, that the Holy Bible should be taken literally.

Reidun MacDonald your words made me ponder on my experiences in life Many of us can say we have been raised up in this or that religion. Many or much more of us can also say that we have gone astray but Yehovah in his love and compassion had always done some mighty work to bring us back or to show us his love. A Good few have never strayed from their church(particular religion) yet even some of them won’t see the truth of Yehovah’s provision for salvation thru his beloved son Yeshua (Jesus).
Some won’t because they choose not and will make a conscious decision to not to others because the time is not right for them to understand the truth. this last I say because of those we look up to as pastors or spiritual mentors or those who should be tending to Yehovah’s flock.
We are in the time where we are to say to the Israelites “we have inherited lies” Jeremiah 16:19O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.
Many of us are just beginning to see this and are now humbly seeking Yehovah in prayer and supplication to give us wisdom to discern. Wisdom to humbly admit that we have held on to lies. Does this make us unsaved or unable to be saved? I believe not! According to the many religions Yes. But not if we are sincer and humble to search the scriptures.
Pastors like Mr. Walter Vieth and Esteban Borh and others (by the way they are Adventists) may be blind yet to this and a few other truths hard to swallow/understand because of the doctrines of man that they are not willing to set aside. That is the sad truth. Untill we can set aside the “my religion is the only true religion” And start using the Bible alone to uphold our belief in Yeshua (Jesus) and to find out about the end times using the Old and New testament can we be able to understand what has happened and what is happening and what will happen in the near future or end times.
What we will comprehend and what others will comprehend we will have to dig very deep into the scriptures to see if the understanding we are gathering either old or new theory or theology is upheld by the very scriptures. This doesn’t mean we will not have a wrong or incomplete theory/theology about a particular issue at some point in time. But we must be confident that the Holy Spirit will guide us to the Knowledge of Truth. Pray ,Trust in Yehovah and in Yeshua for the Spirit of Yehovah will guide us. For one in my life I can truly say that I am starting to understand the word of Yehovah. It is very exciting to realize that certain passages in scripture we have read many times suddenly have deep true meaning.
I hope and pray that sincere pastors even if they see not at this time will come to see very soon because they have a great responsibility to share Truth. Faith and Peace.

In all your researching, do you have a definite answer as to where this blood sample is today? I visited the Wyatt museum and spoke with Richard Rives and he claims that the sample they have isn’t even blood at all and that he basically doesn’t believe Ron’s story. He did admit that the sample tested was different from the one in their possession at the museum which is why I am curious where Rons tested sample is today. Thanks
