Reports of Noahian Deluge

Hi S____,

Thank you for your question concerning claims certain people have made to have discovered the ark of Noah and gold clad chariot wheels at the place where Israel crossed the Red Sea, etc.
It is not in the scope or purpose of this web site to prove or disprove any of the thousands of claims of discoveries which either bolster or refute the inspired words of God.
What this website does is point you to what the scriptures say. If God has given you faith in His Word, then I can be of some help to you. On the other hand, if your faith is based on what you see, I can be of no assistance to you whatsoever.

/ Here is why that is so:

Joh 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Faith, contrary to what many teach, is not based upon provable, demonstrable science. It is based upon verifiable historic Truth, but faith cannot be demonstrated in a laboratory.
“Blessed are they that have not seen and yet believe”. If one’s faith is based upon being able to see Noah’s ark, gold clad chariot wheels, or the ark of the covenant, then one has no faith at all. The entire Christian religion is based upon a Truth which cannot be duplicated in a laboratory. No one yet has ever demonstrated how a virgin can get pregnant without knowing a man.

Mat 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Crist was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

It is true that many physical signs and wonders followed Christ and his apostles. Why were there physical signs and wonders? Here is why for all of us:

“… Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed:”

But the last part of that verse is just as true as the first part:

“… blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”

You say,

The only ‘grip’ you need is faith in the Word of God which tells us:

Gen 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

Those words are far more reliable than any artifact that will ever be proffered by any man. As our Lord also told us:

Mat 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

Those are Christ’s words, and they are solid as a rock. Those who stand on Christ’s Words need no artifacts to bolster their faith in those words.
I would like to suggest that you read the article “Will God’s Strong Delusion Deceive You” which is located at this URL, http:// iswasandwillbe. com/ strongdelusion. php
In light of these words of scripture, it is far more likely that those who are seeking either artifacts from the ark of Noah to the so- called ‘holy grail’ or the ‘shroud of Turin’ are all simply making merchandise of the gospel.

2Ti 3:13 Yet wicked men and swindlers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. (CLV)
2Co 2:17 For we are not as the majority, who are peddling the word of God, but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God in Christ, are we speaking. (CLV)

I hope this is all of some edification to you.
Your brother in Christ,
