High resolution satellite images may have detected evidence of Noah's Ark in Turkey

A group made up of scientists and adventurers are trying to get permission from the Turkish government to visit Turkey's Mt. Ararat to investigate what was spotted in high resolution satellite images taken last year at the height of a record warm summer. Images of what they claim to be the remains of the Biblical boat, Noah's Ark.

A Honolulu business man, Daniel McGivern, the leader of the group says that he is convinced that these new photos unequivocally show a man-made object, that if excavated and tests are run on any collection of samples, will prove that it indeed is Noah's Ark. McGivern says that the expedition to Turkey's Mt. Arafat has not taken place because the government of Turkey will not issue a research visa, which McGivern says, is sad, but it is their country.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As the search goes on for the remains of Noah's Ark on Mt. Ararat in Turkey from some 4,500 years ago, Bible prophecy refers to Noah's Day as an indicator of the time of the Return of Jesus Christ. Many teams have traveled to Turkey's famous Mt. Ararat in search of the biblical boat called Noah's Ark, all to be confronted by failure.

One such team was headed by a dear friend of mine, the late astronaut, Jim Erwin, who did believe that the remains of Noah's Ark could and one day would be found in the area that the Bible records was the landing site of the boat after the world-wide Flood 4,500 years ago. Different team leaders in search of Noah's Ark have conflicting ideas as to the actual location of what may be left of the boat, and no one has been successful yet in the search for Noah's Ark. However, as these scientists and adventurers continue to search, Bible prophecy refers to Noah's Day as an indicator the times in the Last Days that will mark the return of Jesus Christ to the earth.

Matthew 24:37 is a record of what Jesus had to say about this subject 2,000 years ago. He said,"As it was in the Days of Noah, so shall it be when I return to the earth". After the Ark landed, Noah and his family actually ended up living in Babylon where Noah's great grandson, Nimrod, was a king of all of human kind in that day. Genesis 10-11 reveal to us that Babylon then is Iraq today.

As it was in the Days of Noah, the focus of the world was on Iraq, as it is today. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled and maybe very soon.
