It Was a Huge Project

The Ark Encounter

This past week my husband and I visited the Ark Encounter in Kentucky. We were amazed and enlightened as we walked through each deck, observing the design of the ark to meet the needs of Noah’s family and the animals. This ark is built to the specifications in the book of Genesis.

Genesis 6:9 tells us: Noah walked with God.

Noah was given a huge task in a corrupt and violent society.

And God saw the earth, and behold it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on earth. And God said to Noah, “I have determined to make an end to all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Genesis 6: 12-14

God gave specific instructions for the ark—its length, breadth and height. The Bible mentions the number of decks, the animals and stores of food.

Noah was probably confronted and challenged during the years that he spent building the ark. He persevered. Noah’s life, his faith and perseverance are an inspiration for us.

As we hold fast to God, He will hold fast to us.

  1. Carol, thanks for sharing your experience. I’d love to go see that Ark sometime, my daughter has been there! Visiting you from FMF#49 this week. Blessings, Pam .

    1. We arrived at 3pm (I forgot to factor in the time change), so we had three hours there. It was enough, but we could have easily spent more time. We were fortunate to hear Ken Ham speak. There are speakers and concerts scheduled throughout the day.
