A new Noah's Ark is ready to sail

Johan Huibers, a creationist from the Netherlands, has built a replica of the biblical Ark of Noah as a testament to his faith in the literal truth of the Bible and the account of the worldwide flood some 4,500 years ago as recorded in the Bible.

Some have brought attention to the time of completion of the ark in light of the global warming issue; however, Huibers said he wasn't worried about another biblical flood since according to the Bible book of Genesis, the rainbow is the sign of God's promise never to flood the world again. Huibers said that he hopes the Noah's Ark project will renew interest in Christianity and the literal truths found in the Bible, especially in light of the times in which we live today.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The replica of Noah's Ark built by a Dutch creationist living in the Netherlands is a reminder of what Jesus said about the Days of Noah as it relates to the End Times, that is according to Bible prophecy.

After working for two years, Johan Huibers' construction of the Ark of Noah's day is only about half as large as the original Noah's Ark built 4,500 years ago, but its builder wants to remind the world of how it was in Noah's Day. The builder of the new Noah's Ark is a creationist and student of the Bible which he studies as literal and he wants to remind the world how it was in Noah's day and show the similarities to our day.

The Bible records the words of Jesus referring to the Days of Noah when He said that as the days of Noah were so it shall be in the days of the return of the Lord to earth, that's Matthew 24:37-42. Those days were days of multiple marriages, murder carried out for religious reasons, the wickedness of man was great upon the earth, the thoughts of man's heart were evil continually and man repented not, that's when the worldwide flood came as judgment upon the earth, and that's recorded in Genesis chapters 6, 7, and 8.

Jesus, in His Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24, said "As it was in those days, so shall it be in the days of the coming of Jesus Christ back to the earth", Ark or no Ark.
