"Quick honey! Duck down!" It was the first day of our trip to Noah’s Ark. The ground began to rumble and I was sure it was an earthquake. They have them regularly in this part of Turkey.
SURROUNDED BY THE TURKISH ARMY!
We looked out of the motel window and we could see Mount Ararat in the distance. But about 100 yards in front of our hotel there were military vehicles and troops racing east. We were told in briefings before we left Istanbul to not film or take pictures of the military. So my wife and I cautiously peered out the window at this military activity. We could see thousands of troops and vehicles. Our first thought was, would this keep us from going to the Noah’s Ark site?
A little later that morning we left with our group to go to the site. After a short drive on the main highway we were stopped by the Turkish military at a checkpoint. The question in our minds again was, "Would they keep us from going to Noah’s Ark?". We had waited over 12 years and many hours of planning. Would it all be for nought?
They asked for our passports and we gave them to them. They seemed friendly enough and after a few moments we were allowed to go on. Our guide told us that there were rebels in the area and the military was showing them who was boss. To our great relief we were allowed to proceed. It was actually a blessing that we were surrounded by the military. It made us feel safer. That’s because the Noah’s Ark site is within 6km of the Iranian border. You can see Russia and Armenia to the north and Iraq is 300 miles to the south. Plus you have the rebels who are trying to make a point with the Turks about giving them an independent state.
This was a brief picture of the area and its dangers. And yet we felt privileged to be there. Overwhelmed actually.
HAS THE FINAL COUNTDOWN BEGUN?
Many people including scientists, statesmen and others sense that our planet is on a deadline with destiny. Students of prophecy believe that many biblical prophecies appear to be converging right now. These prophecies hint at a soon coming interruption in human history. Many people in every walk of life see the tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes and wars and are asking, "Has the final countdown really begun?"
You might be wondering what this has to do with archaeology and specifically with the discoveries shown on this web site. Well, here is the answer. Recently, a series of archeaological discoveries has taken place which are very unique especially when compared to those of the past.
WALKING ON NOAH’S ARK!!
These discoveries verify actual events. Major events. Events in which the Creator of the universe intervened in the history of this earth. Physical evidence that you can see with your very own eyes. Places where you can go right now and look for yourself. Touch for yourself. For long centuries God has hidden these artifacts for just such a time as this. Now do you see why we were thrilled to be there? Walking on Noah’s Ark. Reading scripture passages describing the flood and the ark and its resting place while standing on Noah’s Ark. Walking over the same ground where civilization began again. What a thrill. What a priviledge and what a responsibility to share this with the world.
But there is a more profound aspect to all of this. Five of these discoveries were linked to prophecies of the future. Not only do these discoveries prove the Bible to be true but they have a direct relevance to today. Each one of them points to a soon coming event.
WHY DOES ANCHOR STONES INTERNATIONAL EXIST?
That is why Anchor Stones International exists. That is why we have this special feature called, "The Discoveries–A Closer Look." To take a closer look at the discoveries and present concise information about them on a regular basis so that daily you can see the truth like an ever increasing light sweeping the world, elightening mankind to prepare for the most monumental events in human history.
