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. Find out more about this warning (what it means) and check out Ark Encounter here.

God created the rainbow. The rainbow was a visual promise (covenant) to Noah of the Bible (and is to all flesh) that God will not flood the earth again. (see Genesis 9:14-17) The rainbow is beautiful because God created it that way.
I find it intriguing how we as human beings can fulfill Bible prophecy and God’s teachings without even knowing it. Look at Romans 8:7–“The mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.” In other words, we naturally have a hatred directed at God. Enter the gay pride symbol: the rainbow. Human beings have taken something God intended beautiful and have trampled it underfoot by making it (the rainbow) a symbol for sinning against God. Therefore as the Bible already states, this is all done because it’s our nature to break God’s law (sin). Without being born again spiritually (to get a new heart from God) we will not be able to please Him nor will we have a Savior from the wrath to come.
