A Tale Of Two Arks

I came across a video on YouTube recently which I found quite amazing. A former US Navy submariner recalls an incident which happened in 1980, when he was stationed on a nuclear submarine which went on full nuclear alert (a very rare occurrence) because of a very serious incident involving the movement of 10,000 Russian troops into the mountains of Turkey. This so alarmed the Americans that they hit the panic button, but the reason for it, and the incident itself was never reported, and remains classified to this day. What was this incident?
 
Briefly, an unusually warm summer caused the snow and ice on the top of Mount Ararat, in Turkey, to melt, exposing a large ship-like object to the all-seeing eyes of both US and Russian satellites. So the Soviet government decided that their people (and the rest of the world) needed to be protected from this dangerous revelation that the Bible story of Noah’s Ark was true, exposing state-sponsored atheism as a big fraud, so they promptly dispatched 10,000 troops with big ice-cutting saws to cut the Ark up and remove it from the mountain with heavy-lift helicopters. Fortunately God decided enough was enough and sent a snowstorm as they were preparing to remove the 2nd piece of the Ark which was in another location further down the mountain, so the Russians left at this point, which is why there have been persistent reports over the last few decades from people who have been up Mt Ararat and seen what remains of the Ark. To hear the full story, you can watch the video below…
 

 
So now we know that Noah’s Ark did actually exist. But what actually is the story of Noah’s Ark, and what is the significance of it for us today? Well, according to Bible experts, 47 days after the death of Methuselah, that venerable ancient who passed on at 969 years, Noah packed up his family and a whole bunch of animals into the massive ship he had built (think Evan Almighty, but this happened in 2458 BC).
 
You see, God was fed up with the sin, but particularly the violence that was happening on planet Earth, so he decided that as humans were going to end up killing each other anyway, he might as well give them all a warning and a chance to escape from the inevitable. But atheism was just as prevalent in Noah’s day as it is now, so nobody listened to Noah’s preaching except his own family, and God, true to His word, went ahead and gave mankind a more humane death than the slaughter they were wreaking on each other, and, via Noah’s 3 sons and their wives, and the animals on board, mankind had a chance to start again in a new world, purged of all the atheists.
 
Fast forward a little over a thousand years, to 1445 BC. Another great man of God you may have heard of, Moses, is busy building another Ark, but this time it’s a lot smaller, and has a different purpose. The Ark of the Covenant, believe it or not, was a secret weapon used by the ancient Israelites to fight the many battles they became embroiled in. Violence had reared its ugly head on the earth again, so God decided that He would provide a new Ark (which contained the 10 commandments on tablets of stone as given to Moses) as a receptacle of His own presence on the Earth. When King David’s men carried the Ark of the Covenant into battle with them, victory was assured. So in a kind of a way, it DOES have the same purpose as the first Ark: inside this wooden box was the key to man’s peace and victory over the enemies of God. The Israelites (the word Israel means man or people of God) had to fight for their survival in a world of atheists who hated God. Are you seeing the common thread in this story?
 
Fast forward almost 1500 years, and the atheists are getting the upper hand again. Israel is occupied by the Roman army, and the city of Jerusalem is about to be destroyed and the people of Israel dispersed from their promised land. But before this happens, God decides to come down to Earth and live among His people for a while. For about 33 years in fact. God’s son Jesus (or Yeshua as he was actually called at the time) was born as a baby and grew up to be a man. Shortly before the Romans and the religious atheists executed him, Jesus brought up the subject of Noah (recorded in Matthew 24:37-41):
 
“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.”
 
What’s this? Does this imply that God is warning us about a future flood-like event of judgement when once again He will rescue His people before the hand of judgement falls? I believe so, but this time He won’t use a boat, or even a secret weapon. This is the big one. When the atheists eventually take control of the planet and destroy all Godly government on the earth, the Bible predicts there will be a huge battle in the last surviving country standing up for God on the earth. Sure enough, God has collected his ancient people together again in the land of Israel. Fast forward 2000 years to a time the Bible calls the Tribulation. And the rescue plan revealed by Yeshua, and also mentioned in other parts of the Bible, has been labelled the Rapture, although the word rapture was never used in the text of the Bible itself.
 
By the way, it was never mentioned in the Bible, what happened to the Ark of the Covenant. Here’s one possibility…

 
Below is actual video footage of the excavated area where it is claimed the Ark of the Covenant lies sealed in a cavern below the Garden Tomb in Jerusalem. The man who discovered it in 1982, Ron Wyatt, cooperated fully with the Israeli Antiquities Authority in his excavation, and the cavern has been sealed off since then. Unfortunately, 6 Israelis died not long after this, in an early attempt to remove the Ark from where it was hidden by the prophet Jeremiah during the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem in 586BC. This is not surprising, as those unauthorized to touch the Ark in the biblical narrative, also died…
 

 
Interestingly, Ron Wyatt also claimed to have visited the site of the first Ark’s final resting place on the mountains of Ararat in Turkey. So, to round off the tale of the 2 arks, here is his account of his exploration of the Ark site. This does raise questions with regards to where the Ark really ended up, as there is a conflict with Dudley’s story of an Ark perfectly preserved in ice. Ron claims that there isn’t much left of the ark, just fosilized wood. I’ll let you decide which story to believe.
 

I tend to believe Ron’s story more, as there is very little to back Dudley Thomas’s account. I did my best to validate Dudley’s story by contacting as many ex crew members of the USS Casimir Pulaski as I could, through the website which was set up by and for ex crew members. I did manage to find a senior officer who remembered him and validated that he was on the submarine, but couldn’t remember the incident he describes. So at the end of the day, if there was an intelligence magazine as he described, which contained the story of the Russian dismantling and removal of a preserved Ark, the truth of that account depends on the truthfulness of the writers, and that has to take into account the political/intelligence purpose of the report, whether it was intended to enlighten or deceive, as much intelligence information is. Then again, perhaps Dudley himself may have his own reasons for fabricating such a tale. I did also contact Dudley by email through his Youtube channel, and subsequently he removed the video from his Youtube account, promising to replace it with a modified version at a later date. As of today, that video has not appeared. However, there are multiple copies of the original online, so the story will continue to circulate, I am sure…

    to tell you the truth ron wyatt was a good talker,he convinced many people with his persuasive talk but when it comes to reality his discoveries were very questionable.
