The Voyage Begins Again on July 7!

by Ark Encounter on February 8, 2016

There will never be another global Flood—that was God’s promise when He gave us the rainbow as a sign of His covenant with man and all living creatures (Genesis 9:15).

The Bible makes it clear, however, that there will be another global judgment: next time by fire. As God’s Word states, it will be the Final Judgment as “the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).

Today, we don’t need another Ark to save animals and people from a global Flood. But we do need another kind of Ark—to take people on what we are calling “a voyage of discovery.”

More than ever, people need to discover the truth of God’s Word, beginning in Genesis, and the saving gospel of the New Testament. Our culture needs to take a voyage of discovery and learn that:

  • God’s Word concerning the history of the universe and all life is true.
  • God’s Word concerning man’s sinful state and his need of salvation in Christ is true.

We need to be preaching the gospel and warning people about the judgment to come! In this secularized time, we believe one of the best and most effective ways to reach tens of millions of people with the gospel message is to build another Ark—a gospel-focused, life-size Ark—and show the world that science confirms the Bible. God’s Word is true, and we all need to come to repentance.

Other than the Cross, we believe Noah’s Ark is the greatest reminder of the soul-saving gospel. Just as Noah and his family had to go through the one Ark door to be saved, so we need to go through the one door, Jesus Christ, to be saved. Jesus said: “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture” (John 10:9).

By God’s grace, on July 7 of this year, the life-size Ark, one of the major Christian outreaches of this era, will open to the public. This huge ship will take visitors on a very special voyage:

  • to experience the most authentic reconstruction of Noah’s Ark, built according to the dimensions in the Bible
  • to get an idea of what it was like in Noah’s day
  • to get answers to questions about the Ark and Flood
  • to be taught about the truth of God’s Word, beginning with its history in Genesis
  • to be challenged concerning the need for every person to go through the “door” (Jesus Christ), be saved from the coming judgment, and live for eternity with their Creator and Savior.

We want people to know that the history in the Bible is true, and the gospel based in that history is true! And this gospel is that “if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).

So, the voyage begins . . . again . . . on July 7! Help get the word out, plan your trip, and purchase advance tickets when you visit
