That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Part Of Noah’s Ark Found In Turkey?

Posted by Job on March 2, 2008

Dogubayazit (Turkey�s Iran-Armenian Border) � For the first time in the seven decade-long history of the search for the legendary Noah�s Ark, a Turkish-Hong Kong exploration team on Tuesday came out with �material evidence�, to prove that the Ark was nestled on Mount Ararat, Turkey�s highest mountain peak bordering Iran and Armenia.

A panel of experts, comprising Turkish authorities, veteran mountaineers, archaeologists, geologists and members of Hong Kong-based Noah�s Ark Ministries International, also displayed an almost one-metre-long peice of petrified wood before the media and specially invited international experts.

The experts claimed it to be a part of a long structure they had unearthed during their February-August 2007 exploration. �It is for the first time in the history of the Ark search that an exploration team is getting a material evidence and graphic documentation. This makes it not only a the significant breakthrough in the Ark-search, but one that is supported with the most substantial evidence in recent history,� the panel said.

The revelation is expected to open up a fresh chapter in the ongoing debates in the scientific community on the search for Noah�s Ark.

Narrating the genesis of their exploration on Mount Ararat, the mount which has a direct reference in Holy Quran (Mount Judi) and Bible, the panel said the search team had made several foiled attempts before unearthing the evidence at an altitude of 4,500-metres of the estimated 5,165 metre volcanic mountain.

�The structure was discovered in the interiors of an unusual cave. The 11.5m wide and 2.6m high white wooden texture was revealed after removing thick layers of volcanic ash on the cave wall,� panel members said at a press conference.

One of the underlying issues in the search for the Ark is the proper identification of its wood fragments. A petrographic examination carried out by the Applied Geoscience Centre of the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Hong Kong, identified the object as a petrified wooden structure, the panel said.

�Some of the big holes found on the structure indicate the locations where branches used to grow on tree. In places, original holes are partly or completely replaced by individual minerals and crystalline materials that can be found in rock materials,� said Dr Ahmet Ozbek, a panel member, who is also a faculty of Geology Engineering Kahramanmara Suctcu Imam University.

Dismissing the possibilities of the structure being wood that could appear naturally around the discovery site, Professor Oktay Belli, director, Eurasian Archaeology Institute, University of Istanbul, said researches have proved that there was no vegetation on Mount Ararat ever since 2000BC, because of the asperities of Ararat�s climate.

Talking to The Peninsula, Cemalettin Demircioglu, Dogubayazit City Governor, under whose jurisdiction the mount is located, said the civic body will invite more international experts to conduct further scientific studies on Mount Ararat.

�History has more than one times corroborated the legendary evidence that the ark was nestled on Mount Ararat. We will introduce the latest findings to the world and continue the scientific study. All interested scientists and NGOs can join our missions� he said. However, he said, those who are involved in the project must ensure the findings are not used politically, religiously, or for any vested interest.

Located in the Far Eastern Turkey, Ararat is great prize for mountain collectors. Ark sighting has often been reported from this mountain. The observation of Vessel-shaped features in aerial photograph of Ararat had caused a stir in the late 1950�s. However, this is the first time an exploration team is coming out with �material evidence�.

Christian Killings Causing Turkish Muslims To Ask Questions

Posted by Job on May 2, 2007

This article (http://www.mnnonline.org/article/9866) provides still more proof that the result of persecution is bringing more people to Christ. Of course, Satan knows this and responds by planting more and more false doctrines in the church causing Christians to believe that they should not see persecution, and making sure that a great many false prophets are elevated who are willing to “preach” them. Sound like anyone that you know? Well, maybe we should take up a collection, send these false preachers and their members over to Turkey, and see how it goes for them. In the meantime, we should pray for, support, and comfort persecuted LEGITIMATE Christians while praising God that their suffering is not in vain!

Christian Bible Publishers Murdered in Turkey

Posted by Job on April 19, 2007

This is the link. As usual, the mainstream media could care less about the extreme persecution of Christians in the Muslim world. But that is to be expected. My concern is that there is little evidence that most western Christians truly care. Just like virtually no one cares about Jews who die from terrorism in Israel. In any event, please join me in prayer and then see text of story below. Father YHVH please comfort the victims of this tragedy. Please touch the hearts of the leaders of Turkey that they might convert, and that they might deal justly even if they do not. Please lead the people who committed this crime and those who supported it to salvation. And please comfort the grief of the families of these martyrs, and may they be strengthened by the knowledge that being absent from the body is being present with Christ. Please prevent the spirit of fear and discouragement from falling over Turkish Christians, and may they instead endure to the end. If it is Your Will for them to leave Turkey or to stay, whatever it is may they do Your Will. In the Name and by the Blood of Yeshua HaMashiach, amen.

Three Bible publishing house workers have been killed in the latest attack on Turkey’s minority Christian community on Wednesday. The attackers bound their victims before slitting their throats in the publishing house in Malatya, a city in central Turkey and a nationalist stronghold.  Four people are believed to have been detained for questioning regarding the killings, and one other suspect that fell from the building was taken to the hospital with head trauma. It has emerged that one of those murdered was of German nationality, German Ambassador to Turkey Eckart Cuntz said. Images appeared on television stations showing police leading several young men out of the building where the killings took place.

Political tensions are rising in the secular but largely Sunni Muslim country over the past year, with Armenian-Turkish editor Hrant Dink being shot dead by an ultranationalist youth earlier this year. Late last year the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI, paid a short visit to Turkey to ease relations, but during the visit a number of protests broke out in Istanbul. There have been reports of an increase in violence against Christian clergy since the visit.

Christian missionaries are routinely accused by Turkish nationalists of attempting to undermine Turkey’s political and religious order. The EU has clamped down on hostilities towards Christian missionaries in Turkey, however, telling the country that the Christian minority must be given more religious freedom in order to reach the level of religious freedom acceptable for entry to the EU.

Carlos Madrigal, an evangelical pastor in Turkey, told Reuters: “We would like a government campaign to get rid of the myths, such as that missionaries are trying to divide the country, these are the things which feed such acts. “In some ways the situation has improved because we have got legal rights … but there are parts of society which have become radicalised.”

The Council On Foreign Relations’ Middle East Solution: Integrate Them Into The EU Starting With Turkey

Posted by Job on April 14, 2007

See link here. Of course, this explains why Rick Warren has been playing apologist for Syria and frontman for North Korea. But hey, Rick Warren supporters, don’t let harsh words from close minded fundamentalists like me get you upset. The important thing is that the people who REALLY MATTER, ecumenical open minded New Agers and eastern religion practicioners, are behind Warren (and Robert Schuller too) 100%! The power of purpose driven positive thinking, anyone?  Technorati Tags:
