Beginning in Genesis 6 from the Bible, God told Noah to build an ark (large boat-like structure) to save animals and people because God was going to flood the earth and destroy mankind from off the face of the earth for the evil they had done.
“The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” Genesis 6:5
As Noah built the ark people scoffed and mocked him for doing it because they didn’t believe God, loved their sin rather than the Creator and it hadn’t rained before. Today a similar thing is happening. The ark is once again being rebuilt but not because of a coming literal flood or so that it will float. However, this replica ark is being created in the hope of saving people. But like in Noah’s time, people are again mocking the building of this ark. People hate truth, love their sin and hate the God of the Bible because of what He says about us breaking His commands (sin).
Similarly to in Noah’s day when God warned people of coming judgment upon the earth, this modern replica ark (known as the Ark Encounter) will have the purpose of warning people about a coming judgment and how they can escape it.
