Right now they’re silent—but not really. In the past, millions of people have heard their witness. Millions more have heard of their bold proclamation of the gospel—they shout the message of the cross.
They teach the Easter message every day of the year. People from nations around the world have heard of them.
Books tell of them. Videos have recorded them. Atheists are frightened of them and want them to go away. The media has mocked them, but they keep showing up on TV. And though somewhat silent right now, they will speak more loudly than ever soon. In fact, they teach the Easter message every day of the year. People from nations around the world have heard of them. They are two powerful witnesses. And what are they?
The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum.
Yes, the Ark and museum may seem silent right now, but they have already been boldly presenting the message of the saving gospel and the message of the cross to millions. And they still do through the many articles, books, videos, and other resources that have been produced about their vital messages.
Yes, the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum present the Easter message day after day after day. And so they should. It’s the most important message to proclaim in the universe. The message that explains man’s problems (sin), our separation from God, and God’s solution Jesus Christ.
At the Creation Museum, people walk through biblical history to understand the fall of man, the entrance of sin and death, the promise of the Messiah, and the message of the Son of God who stepped into history to become the God-man to die on a cross, be raised from the dead, and offer a free gift of salvation.
At the Ark Encounter, the lit crosses on both sides of the one door to the Ark stand as a reminder that as Noah and his family went through one door to be saved, so we need to go through one door (the Lord Jesus Christ) to be saved. Inside the Ark, an exhibit showing the doors of Scripture continues to emphasize the fact that there’s only one way to be saved, and that’s through the Lord Jesus Christ.
And even though these AiG attractions are temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus situation, they still stand as (silent) witnesses for the message of salvation. And even as they still present their messages in many ways during the closure, we encourage you to get ready to come and visit these great testaments to the truths of the Bible and the gospel. When they reopen, they will boldly present the truth of God’s Word and the salvation message to a dying world.
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9).
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3).
Happy Good Friday to you today. And it is GOOD Friday, because the good news is that Jesus Christ died for our sins. Our Creator became our Redeemer.
Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation (Revelation 5:9).
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
