The location of the real Noah’s Ark may have been confirmed by relic-hunters in a remote mountain range.

Experts claim they’ve snapped underground images of a mysterious ship-shaped object discovered half a century ago in eastern Turkey.

Creationists have long claimed that Noah’s legendary boat is buried beneath the rocky spot, known as the Durupınar site.

Not everyone is convinced though, with geologists claiming the mountainous lump is simply an unusual mountain formation.

Now a film crew led by long-time ark hunter Cem Sertesen say they’ve image whatever’s down there, according to the Turkish Anadolu Agency.

The team claim they’ll reveal the pictures, obtained by “sending electric signals underground via cables”, in a forthcoming documentary about the Ark.

“These are the actual images of Noah’s Ark,” said Sertesen, who previously released a documentary about finding the ark in 2017.

“They are neither fake nor simulation. They show the entire ship buried underground.”

According to legend, Noah loaded two of every animal onto a 150-meter long ark to save them from apocalyptic flooding.

In the Book of Genesis, the mountains of Ararat in what is now eastern Turkey is the region in which Noah’s Ark comes to rest after the Great Flood.

Despite numerous expeditions to find the craft across the vast mountain range, no physical proof has emerged.

A popular focus of many searches is the Durupınar site, a 150-meter-long formation among the mountains.

Some creationists claim the bizarre object is the remains of Noah’s ship buried deep underground, while scientists argue it is a natural formation.

Now 3D scans of the object may prove once and for all whether Durupınar is as holy as some believe.

They were created by computer engineer and archaeologist Andrew Jones, as well as geophysicist John Larsen, in a bid to study the strange object.

Jones and Larsen shared their discoveries with Sertesen, director of the 2017 documentary “Noah’s Ark”.

Sertesen admitted that the images aren’t necessarily of Noah’s Ark, and could be of another ship entirely.

“It’s a ship, but it’s too early to be called Noah’s Ark,” he said.

That seems unlike considering the spot is over 50 miles from the nearest body of water.

The ship-shaped site was discovered in 1959 by Captain Ilhan Durupinar, an expert cartographer.

The first scientific research of the formation was performed only 26 years later, with researchers concluding that ”it is highly likely that the formation underground is a ship.”

It’s not clear when Sertesen’s documentary will air.

Noah’s Ark – Ron Wyatt’s story

Jun 17, 2015

The story of the evidence which led the Turkish authorities to recognize the discovery of Noah’s Ark in the mountains of Ararat.

The Bill Is Paid

You shall give it to the Levite, the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow.  Deuteronomy 26:12

“What happened to you?” asked Zeal, a Nigerian businessman, as he bent over a hospital bed in Lagos. “Someone shot me,” replied the young man, his thigh bandaged. Although the injured man was well enough to return home, he wouldn’t be released until he settled his bill—a policy that many government hospitals in the region follow. After consulting with a social worker, Zeal anonymously covered the bill through the charitable fund he’d earlier set up as a way to express his Christian faith. In return, he hopes that those receiving the gift of release will one day give to others too.

The theme of giving from God’s bounty pulses throughout the Bible. For instance, when Moses instructed the Israelites on how to live in the Promised Land, he told them to give back to God first (see Deuteronomy 26:1–3) and to care for those in need—the foreigners, orphans, and widows (v. 12). Because they dwelled in a “land flowing with milk and honey” (v. 15), they were to express God’s love to the needy.

We too can spread God’s love through sharing our material goods, whether big or small. We might not have the opportunity to personally give exactly like Zeal did, but we can ask God to show us how to give or who needs our help.

Reflect & Pray

How do you think the patients felt who were released because of Zeal? If you’ve experienced an unexpected gift of grace, how did you respond?

God, thank You for caring for those in need. Open my eyes to the material and spiritual needs of those near and far to me, and help me to know how to respond.

Sunday Reflection: The Blessing of God’s Calling

At times God calls us to things that require giving up or letting go of something important to us. That can be difficult or even confusing, but thankfully we know that “God is not a God of confusion but of peace” (1 Corinthians 14:33).

In those situations where He may ask us to surrender something we find good or comfortable, we understandably grieve that loss. But God wants us to bring those desires and thoughts to Him, willingly surrendering our grief and confusion. Giving these up doesn’t mean we will never experience them again—it simply means we place our hope for the future in God, who knows what it is to suffer. Only then can we clearly hear His call and reply, “Here am I. Send me!” (See Isa. 6:8.)

THINK ABOUT IT
• Have you ever sensed God asking you to do something that required relinquishment of any kind? Think about how you felt as you considered and sought discernment.

• Paul urges us to “examine everything carefully” and “hold fast to that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21). In the process, we may at times focus on a specific detail while trying to understand what God’s asking us to do. What does careful discernment and examination look like in your life?

In Times of Trouble

“For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.” (Psalm 27:5)

In this psalm of praise, David expresses his confidence in the Lord, even though “the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh” (v. 2). In spite of the danger, he looks to God for safety. “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” (v. 1). Why did God preserve David? The answer is at least twofold.

First, David had a heart for God. “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple” (v. 4). “Thy face, LORD, will I seek” (v. 8). “Teach me thy way, O LORD” (v. 11).

The second reason is the nature of God Himself. God, by His very nature, hates evil and extends grace toward His own. He is pictured here as a warrior conquering the evil enemies of David. His laws forbid their actions; His gospel robbed these evildoers of their grip; His final kingdom will be rid of them. Until God’s justice, His gospel, and His purpose all fail, we can be sure that He will act.

In our text, David is hidden in the Lord’s “pavilion.” The word, which literally means a protective covering, was used for the tent of the commander-in-chief. Here, with the commander-in-chief, is the most fortified, guarded, and safe area of the battleground. If the pavilion falls, the battle is lost and God has failed. Hidden in His pavilion, we are as safe as He. He sees to it that we are not frightened (v. 13) amid the din of battle, and we shall share in the ultimate victory.

In this world, we have tumultuous war; in the next, unbroken peace. Assured of the outcome, we can “wait on the LORD: [and] be of good courage” (v. 14). JDM

God Certainly Is Not a Railway Porter

Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

—Isaiah 40:12

 

We must be concerned with the person and character of God, not the promises. Through promises we learn what God has willed to us, we learn what we may claim as our heritage, we learn how we should pray. But faith itself must rest on the character of God.

Is this difficult to see? Why are we not stressing this in our evangelical circles? Why are we afraid to declare that people in our churches must come to know God Himself? Why do we not tell them that they must get beyond the point of making God a lifeboat for their rescue or a ladder to get them out of a burning building? How can we help our people get over the idea that God exists just to help run their businesses or fly their airplanes?

God is not a railway porter who carries your suitcase and serves you. God is God. He made heaven and earth. He holds the world in His hand. He measures the dust of the earth in the balance. He spreads the sky out like a mantle. He is the great God Almighty. He is not your servant. He is your Father, and you are His child. He sits in heaven, and you are on the earth.   FBR044-045

God, I fall on my face before You in worship today. Forgive me for those times I have treated You as though You were my servant. I am Your servant, Lord, and I humbly bow before You today. Amen.

 

We Sure Do Need a Revival!

Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?

—Psalm 85:6

 

We need a revival! We need a revival of consecration to death, a revival of happy abandonment to the will of God that will laugh at sacrifice and count it a privilege to bear the cross through the heat and burden of the day.

We are too much influenced by the world and too little controlled by the Spirit. We of the deeper life persuasion are not immune to the temptations of ease and we are in grave danger of becoming a generation of pleasure lovers….

May God raise up a people who will consult their pleasures less and the great need more. I know of one successful layman who refuses again and again to take perfectly legitimate pleasure trips because he cannot bring himself to leave his class of adolescent Sunday school boys. May God multiply such men and women among us till the reproach of Egypt is rolled away and man’s confidence in us restored. GTM159-160

A sanctified life is a life conformed to the Scriptures in every particular. It communes with our hearts; it next reaches our ears, and then it is accomplished in our feet. CTBC, Vol. 2/025

 

My Father Wrote a Book for Me

Psalm 119:105

My father is a writer. He wrote a book for me. My father’s life has been very colorful. He aspired to be a writer and by the age of 17 became a newspaper editor in his homeland, China. The communists blacklisted him as an “intellectual,” which in effect placed him on a “hit list.” Upon learning this information, his family slipped a few dollars into his pocket, put him on a train that same evening, and he disappeared into the night just ahead of his persecutors.

He found his way to Hong Kong, eventually marrying a church girlfriend. He then emigrated to North America, became a Salvation Army officer and retired after 35 years of faithful ministry. Through it all, he wrote. He wrote letters, newsletters, devotional columns, hundreds of articles for Chinese newspapers, several books and sermons with fresh insights from God every week of his 35-year ministry.

Through the years his readers would comment to me, “Oh, I love your father’s writing.” “Your father’s book touched my heart.” “Your dad wrote about you this week in his newspaper column.” I would smile and nod.

I never read my dad’s writing. Everything he wrote was in Chinese, his native language. English is my native language. So I asked my dad to write a book for me. “Dad, tell me your story, so I won’t forget.” As a result, he wrote the book For My Kinsmen’s Sake. It is the account of my family’s heritage. Now I have one book my father has written in English that I can read, understand, cherish and know his mind.

It is one of my most precious possessions. There is only one other book that is more precious to me than the book my dad wrote.

I discovered it in my young adulthood when I reached an exceptionally painful time in my life. It was then I discovered that this book I had never before appreciated was the greatest love letter of all time. My incredible discovery was that it was written to me. I couldn’t read enough about the fact that God loves me immeasurably, and has plans for my future.

It was as if I gained new vision, the true lens through which life could be accurately viewed and interpreted. Despair lost its hold on me as I became aware of God’s love and plans for me.

God’s Word is my love letter, my mirror, my map, my lamp, my instruction manual. It is nourishment for my soul. It is my window into God’s heart. It is the story of my spiritual heritage.

My heavenly Father is a writer. He wrote a Book for me, and for you.
