The Ark Encounter Opens To The Public
Unsealed.org ^ | 7/11/16 | Gary

Posted on 07/11/2016 7:44:01 AM PDT by amessenger4god

The Ark Encounter, a full-scale, 510-foot long model of Noah's Ark, has opened to the public in Grant County, Kentucky.  It is the largest timber frame structure in the United States and the largest free-standing timber frame structure in the world.



I find this fascinating in light of biblical prophecy, specifically 2 Peter 3:3-10:

Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

The mockers are definitely present, just as in the days of Noah:


Is it merely coincidence that Jesus said His return would be at a time like the days of Noah?  What a fitting reminder of both the previous worldwide global calamity and the words of Jesus found in Matthew 24:37 and Luke 17:26.

Here is the official ribbon-cutting ceremony:

There are better possibilities for the Ark's remains. For example there was an anomaly on the slope of Ararat photographed by satellite which I don't think has ever been viewed at ground level.

The "structure" in the photo you posted was investigated and found to be a geologic formation. Like the "face" on Mars or the Giant's Staircase in Ireland geology can be mistaken for man (or giant) made features of the landscape. Continuing to promote them when they've been reliably explained does the argument for Biblical veracity no favors.

I hate atheists for the smug, arrogant, intolerant bastards they are. It’s their way or the highway. F’em!

Meanwhile, I am very impressed with this recreation of the Biblical Ark.

Like those who hate any public display of the Cross and attack it litigiously? That kind of hate?

I'm not a chrstian, and I agree completely with elcid1970.

Not being chrstians, the ancient Israelites could dispose of whole nations with a clear conscience. I eagerly await the day when, on G-d's orders, they return to this practice.

And since I'm not a chrstian, you can't be sarcastic towards me.

Elcid1970, please consider the Noachide option.

We visited the Creation Museum a few years ago and loved it. It was a great experience. An employee (business suit not safari outfit so management?) noticed our son taking pictures of a chameleon so he removed the glass for a better shot. He then took our family down to meet a biologist and we got to hold one of their baby chameleons.

We told our kids we would go back when the Ark project was finished so we are hoping to go this fall.

Thanks for the support, Z.C., and God bless Israel!

Looked up the Noachide Laws. Given by the Lawgiver.

That atheist billboard disgusts me.

Q: Does anyone know how old Noah was supposed to have been at the time of the building of the ark and how long he was supposed to have lived?

That will not happen. G-d Himself will deal the final blow to all heathen nations.

Discussing Israel disposing of entire nations. If they do this as you hope for, how exactly would that be different than Nazis or jihadis?

Also, why would God hate vowels? I never did get that one.

I love the idea of them having this attraction. There are so many naysayers about the feasibility of an ark and that it could hold enough animals to repopulate the life that exists now. I think being able to see just how massive it is and if they have stations that can explain the genetics, it might help people have something tangible to understand that it really is very feasible.

Granted, the whole idea is insane, but remember that the context of the event is that it was a crazy idea. Many of the big events in the Bible are there not because they were considered everyday events, but because they were so impossible to happen by coincidence that there must be an all powerful God directing the event.

No...

The message is the message...

Kind of facetious to say you hate someone who hates because that makes one a hater also.

Or something like that

Same as “I am not very tolerant of intolerant people”

I guess one could say a form of “Lib Speak”...depends on what is is etc etc
