Over the last 150 years numerous claims have been made for the rediscovery of Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat on the Turkish-Armenian border. In April this year a team under the leadership of Yeung Wing-Cheung of the Hong Kong-based Noah's Ark Ministries International made the latest to claim with 99.9% certainly that they have found a remnant of the Ark.
I have been following the trail of Ark hunters now for the last 30 years or so and with each new sighting there seems to be less and less of the Ark left, crushed, apparently, not only by the ice but broken up by earthquakes which are plentiful in the region.
As the first editor of the National Geographic magazine, Gilbert Grosvenor, once said:
But I seriously wonder if that would be true today. For one thing, I don't think any National Geographical editors are believer and almost certainly all are believers in the fairy-godmother of evolution. So much truth is suppressed in today's world, the media so controlled by the anti-Christian powers-that-be, that I doubt little if any coverage would be given to such a find. And if this was covered, it would probably appear strategically at a time of some great crisis when the minds of the people would be occupied elsewhere.
"The discovery of Noah's Ark would be the greatest archaeological find in human history, the greatest event since the resurrection of Christ, and it would alter all the currents of scientific thought."
This world isn't much interested in truth. If people refuse to admit the irrefutable evidence for the existence of God all around them, are they likely to acknowledge the Ark which is a witness to the existence of God's relationship with an obedient, faith-filled patriarch?
Even if Noah's Ark were verified and well publicised, it would probably convert very few people. Three religions claim Noah's Ark as part of their own faith so really all that this archaeological artefact would confirm is the three monotheistic faiths, leaving those converted by the Ark to try and determine which of the three, and then which of the denominations (if any) were true. The Ark can never be the basis of Faith, only one of many lesser comnfirmations for those who already believe and have been saved. It might make a few more religious people but probably wouldn't make any saved people.
"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Elohimhead (Godhead), so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew Elohim (God), they did not glorify Him as Elohim (God), nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools..." (Rom.1:20-22, NKJV).
Yahweh did not say: "Seek ye for the Ark and be saved" but "seek first the kingdom of Elohim (God) and His righteousness" (Matt.6:33, NKJV). Then those who have seen and embraced the Kingdom can be blessed by archaeological finds and have their faith strengthened just that little bit more, for ours is a faith not just of the invisible but also what happened in the physical, namely, the resurrection of Messiah:
And that is what the Ark of Noah prefigured. As the ancient world perished in water because of sin and was reborn again through a remnant, so must the carnal man perish and be reborn into new life in the Messiah. If you have never made the decision to trust in and obey the One who claims to be the Resurrection and the Life, then I urge you to do so today.
"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live" (John 11:25, NKJV).

Message from this morning, fits perfectly!
SAFTETY IS FOUND IN THE ARK!
THE ARK IS ALIVE! IT IS HE HIMSELF OF LUKE 24!
Inside the Ark even within of Life is Living where there is perfection made whole by the Ark whom is Alive and Well.
Outside of that is living under the private interpretations of man.
The Interpretation Came as a man and is Being All Witnessed of Him, the Living Covenant. Are any supposing to be in Him? His body, though proof is in Knowing.
He is not done away nor changed in the Least.
And is a great King at the Right Hand of the Father In Heaven who rules and reigns to bring in those whom remain of His people into the Ark, the Covenant Alive by circumcision of Heart by He the Baptizer Himself. (Luke 24, it is He Himself the Master.)
The path of life leads to true Life where the Living Lawgiver reigns within the Heart.
And loving Him is to Love His Heart and All He is Being.
For those who Hunger and Thirst after righteousness, YHWH Tzadikanu, Yahushua the Ark.
His Interpretations of the Path of Life result in Loving Him, His Heart seen in the Ark of the Covenant Moses built.
But, the Master is Alive! and the reality is the Father in Heaven whom is that Ark Holding all whom are Y'Isha'El together as members of one another in the body He Has So Greatly Made the Chief Stone, the pattern of perfect righteousness for all whom He calls.
In that Torah/Law of the Inward Man. The Kingdom of YHWH within. He already told us before though the seeing in part now is being Lifted and those entering in can see behind the Veil of what is our salvation and the many great and awesome things He has done. To join tens of thousands whom are around the throne, the saints hidden will no longer be so when we are all together in that family reunion foretold.
Hear His Voice, answer Yes to Him, for that confession of mouth that He Is, I AM, speaking, so gently, and that to all things made to the Light of ALL mankind, knowing or not knowing what that eternal Light is that is allowing the thought of each individual to BE.
In Him is Love, Mercy, Kindness, Gentleness, Overcoming of the Trials of the Dust Body where eating His medicine will Heal the problems of commandment breaking and create the desire to love His commandments, to Operate and Live in the POWER He Has where no form of emulations of Torahfullness or 'godliness' of man's private interpretations will ever again be held in esteem, of man nor demon. Lest any think to trample underfoot the Living Torah Alive, the very son of YHWH at His Right Hand.
Live in the Power. What He has done is 24 x 7, in full effect, when He declared, "It Is Finished". And that is great love of the commandments in a way not thought of by any emnity of the Dust Mind unrenewed. The Living Shabbat is 24 x 7, and all He Has Done.
*** Prepare for the transition of the 365 to the 360. ***
(Rev 11 - that no man can do, that no man can choose, that Father In Heaven is doing by great salvation, Yahushua of Deuteronomy 18, for His People, Y'Isha'El.
It is coming and so very near to the door.
For any whom have ears to hear.
And the anti-type kingdom fades into the Dust, while the type will overcome and Become in all that has been foretold.
As those walking in the ARK DECLARE NO FEAR! FOR THERE IS POWER AND NONE SHALL CHANGE SO GREAT A COVENANT IN THE PLACE WHERE IT CAN NEVER, NEVER, EVER, BE ABOLISHED. (RDR, USA. 22 September 2010)
