We trust that you are enjoying our coverage of the opening of the Ark Encounter and the Biblical exposition that we are providing on the subjects of Noah, the ark and the flood.
This event presents Bible-believing Christians with such a great opportunity! As we at Dispensational Publishing House strive to provide the highest-quality content on an issue of this magnitude, you can then make use of it in your interactions with those who raise questions to you. In this way, we can help you to fulfill the mandate of 1 Peter 3:15, which exhorts us to:
Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.
This past weekend, I saw that Christianity Today has done a review of the Ark. While we are still a very young publishing company—and not a true competitor with such a major news organization—yet, I am thankful that I can say that they did not beat us to the punch. Further, their coverage of the entire issue certainly does not rival ours.
Rest assured that we are in this for the long haul. We will continue to produce blogs, interviews, booklets and books on many topics of interest and benefit to Christians, all coming from the dispensational perspective. We are striving the be the best—your go-to source for such theological and worldview resources.
But we cannot do such a work without engaging in many meaningful partnerships. I am grateful for SharperIron.org, which reruns many of our articles, and recently shared my firsthand report on the Ark Encounter. They condensed my three articles into two, which (as of now) have been read a combined total of more than 4,200 times.
We also appreciate very much how our coverage has attracted the attention of Ken Ham, who referenced Dr. John Whitcomb’s blog article called, “The Biblical Prominence of the Flood,” in his own blog on July 14, 2016.
You, too, can be involved simply by reading and sharing our writings. If you enjoy an article, please post the link on your social media pages. Even leaving a comment is a great encouragement. And, of course, do not forget to pray for us!
Since we still have more to post about the Ark Encounter, we will extend our focus on this issue through the first week of August—and may even have a few articles left to run beyond that time.
We also hope to have some great news to report to you in the next few days, and have more big plans to unveil next month. So make sure to stay tuned! There is always something new at Dispensational Publishing House.
Before you go, please take a moment today to reflect along with me on Psalm 29, which speaks so powerfully regarding the Genesis flood:
A Psalm of David.
Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones,
Give unto the Lord glory and strength.
Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name;
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders;
The Lord is over many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars,
Yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes them also skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
The Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth,
And strips the forests bare;
And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”
The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood,
And the Lord sits as King forever.
The Lord will give strength to His people;
The Lord will bless His people with peace.
Here are the latest videos from the Ark Encounter YouTube channel. I wanted to make sure that you were aware of these resources. They will give you a much greater idea of what the Ark is like:
