Today, many ask, is the bible really accurate? We hear stories of Noah’s Ark, and Moses at the top of Mount Sinai where it became consumed with fire in the presence of God. We hear about God through Moses parting the Red Sea to allow the Israelites to cross when they were fleeing from the Egyptians, and we hear about God destroying entire cities with fire. Many of these stories may seem like they are just that- stories, yet these things did actually happen. The bible documents God’s entire plan for us from the beginning of time. It shows us the past, the present and even the future that is coming.
Having said all of this, many still don’t believe. Many maintain that it is too far fetched to believe in these stories. For this reason, God is showing us grace by providing us with proof. That’s right, God has decided to give us witness in testimony by showing us that these things are real. In 1977, a man named Ron Wyatt who was a anesthesiological nurse by day, and a biblical archeologist by night, set out to find the remains of many of these things that the bible speaks of. He was a humble man of God, and takes no credit for himself on these discoveries-rather points out that God did all of the discovering. Please note- Ron was open about the fact that there were many that were out to discredit these discoveries, yet the proof remains and God is great. After 130 trips to the Middle East, Ron died in 1999 of Cancer. Some of his discoveries included the site of Sodom and Gommorah, the Red Sea Crossing Site, Mount Sinai, the Alter of Moses at the base of the mountain, the Alter of the Golden Calf, and his discovery of the Ark of the Covenant including the original Ten Commandments, and the Crucificion site of Jesus. This page will provide you with video and resources where you can read further about some of these discoveries. After all of his work, he concludes that we are all in need of God and that even on our best day, we fall far short of what we should be- and that we must do our best to follow God’s commandments while through the blood of Jesus Christ we are able to find forgiveness for where we fall short. His goal in life was to help souls find salvation. These things are being revealed now in our time by God for the unbeliever, so that he/she can have a final chance to see God’s own witness to the truth of what He has done. Some will read this and continue in their disbelief, attempt to disprove these things, and conclude that these things are impossible. This is pretty important- I ask and plead with you to go and see for yourself, your life is important to God and He is revealing these things for you. Many blessings to those who already believe, in Jesus’ own words in John 20:29- “Because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who believe without seeing.”
The story of Noah’s Ark can be found in Genesis Chapters 6-8. This story can be found throughout many cultures, yet it seems so far fetched right? Let’s take a look:
The Wickedness and Judgment of Man
6 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive[a] with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5 Then the Lord[b] 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. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
Noah Pleases God
9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
The Ark Prepared
13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. 15 And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17 And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21 And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.”
22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.
The Great Flood
7 Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.
7 So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8 Of clean animals, of animals that are unclean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth, 9 two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13 On the very same day Noah and Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark— 14 they and every beast after its kind, all cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. 15 And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16 So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in.
17 Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed and greatly increased on the earth, and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. 20 The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh died that moved on the earth: birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man. 22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit[a] of life, all that was on the dry land, died. 23 So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. 24 And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days.
8 Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. 2 The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained. 3 And the waters receded continually from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters decreased. 4 Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
6 So it came to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. 7 Then he sent out a raven, which kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up from the earth. 8 He also sent out from himself a dove, to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground. 9 But the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her, and drew her into the ark to himself. 10 And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark. 11 Then the dove came to him in the evening, and behold, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth. 12 So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return again to him anymore.
13 And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and indeed the surface of the ground was dry. 14 And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.
15 Then God spoke to Noah, saying, 16 “Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons’ wives with you. 17 Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, so that they may abound on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” 18 So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him. 19 Every animal, every creeping thing, every bird, and whatever creeps on the earth, according to their families, went out of the ark.
God’s Covenant with Creation
20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma. Then the Lord said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done.
22 “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.”
THE PROOF FOR THE UNBELIEVER
You’ll notice- the Ark is said to have rested on the “Mountains of Ararat“. For many years archeologists have been looking at Mount Ararat to find the remains of the ark. While they were close, they never found it because it wasn’t said to be there, rather it was said to be in the mountains of Ararat. Ron Wyatt discovered the remains of Noah’s Ark not far from Mount Ararat in the mountains there. After many tests, they found that this was the structure of an ancient boat. Details of the find can be found here at his website. You can also see results on their family website. You can even view the remains of the ark on Google Earth, yet it has remained widely covered up by governments all over the world.
The story of Noah’s ark was very specific, and the remains of the ark are exactly where the bible said they would be. Please realize, God wants us to see that He has a plan for all of mankind- and it is important to study and know what that plan is. This book that so many discount as nonsense, holds the truth, and when taken seriously and followed, it holds the words of life!
THE BURNED MOUNT SINAI – MOSES ALTER – THE ALTER OF THE GOLDEN CALF
For those that haven’t studied the Old Testament, the pivitol moment in the Old Testament was when Moses led the Israelites out of their Egyptian captivity, where God parted the Red Sea to allow them to flee the Egyptian army, the Red Sea swallowed up the Egyptian army while they were trying to cross, God allowed Moses to tap a rock with his rod and it split in two and produced water for the people, they were fed by “manna” or food from God, and the list of amazing occurences goes on. God consumes the top of what is called Mount Sinai and all that was seen by the people was smoke at the top of the mountain, while Moses went up to meet with God there. This is where Moses received the 10 Commandments from God. Moses was also said to have erected an alter at the base of Mount Sinai, and the people were found to be worshiping the famous “Golden Calf” idol when Moses returned from the mountain. There were many amazing things that were happening in Moses’ time, so amazing that many today don’t believe in them.
To summarize how this all looks in the bible: The Book of Exodus tells how Moses leads the Israelites out of Egypt and through the wilderness to Mount Sinai (According to Paul can be found in “Arabia”), where God reveals himself and offers them a Covenant: they are to keep his torah (i.e. law, instruction), and in return he will be their God and give them the land of Canaan. The Book of Leviticus records the laws of God. The Book of Numbers tells how the Israelites, led now by their God, journey onwards from Sinai towards Canaan, but when their spies report that the land is filled with giants they refuse to go on. God then condemns them to remain in the Desert until the generation that left Egypt passes away. After thirty-eight years at the oasis of Kadesh Barnea the next generation travel on to the borders of Canaan. The Book of Deuteronomy tells how, within sight of the Promised Land, Moses recalls their journeys and gives them new laws. His death (the last reported event of the Torah) concludes the 40 years of the exodus from Egypt. This is the beginning of the story of God’s chosen Jewish people.
Many of these sites were discovered in Saudi Arabia by Ron Wyatt, although he ended up being imprisoned as he entered the country without a passport originally when looking for these sites. Here is a summary of the find:
There are many of these sites that can also be viewed from Google Earth today. Some are included below:
The Burned Top of Mount Sinai
Exodus 19:18- “Mount Sinai was completely in smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire.” It is amazing to see that the summit of the mountain is still charred black. In the video, you can also see closer up views of all of the sites relating to the Exodus. These sites were discovered in the 1970’s, and have been kept relatively quiet across the world. Muslim Governments, especially in the Middle East, don’t want to give Jews or Christians any fuel for their fires. This particular site being located in Saudi Arabia, makes it especially difficult to excavate to bring back these amazing artifacts from Moses’ time. Chariot wheels and other artifacts were also found at the bottom of the Red Sea around the crossing path. God truly is great! See the Google Earth links to view the following:
Moses’ Arrow Shaped Alter At The Bottom of Mount Sinai– Also at this alter are found the remains of Columns, as the bible said that there were 12 columns erected at this alter.
The Alter of the Golden Calf– This has now been fenced off by the Saudi Arabian government, and no one is permitted inside to look further.
The Rock That God Split For Water– Notice the shadow from the rock, that stands approximately 50 feet tall.
There are many other discoveries that we encourage you to research. The most significant discovery of Ron Wyatt, was finding the Ark of the Covenant. It is an amazing story, with an amazing revelation. He found the Ark directly below the crucificion site of Jesus Christ in a chamber, with a crack in the ceiling of the chamber, and with the blood of Christ dripped onto the mercy seat. In the old testament, the blood of sacrificed animals were spattered on the east side of the mercy seat once a year by the high priest as atonement for the sins of the people. Jesus being the final sacrifice for sins, was permitted to sprinkle his own blood on that Ark of the Covenant containing the 10 Commandments, representing that he was the final sacrifice, and that God’s covenant stands. His commandments are still to be obeyed by His chosen people. We encourage you to read about this story as well. Please realize, the bible is real, and Jesus is real! He is coming, and I think you and I both realize that He is coming again soon! We hope that these discoveries can be a tool in the strengthening of your faith, and for the salvation of those that still don’t believe. All of Ron Wyatt’s discoveries can be found at their family website.

Discovery of The Red Sea Crossing:
The Discovery of the Ark of the Covenant:
Ever wonder what happened to the Ark of the Covenant:
“It was also contained in the same writing, that the prophet, being warned of God, commanded the tabernacle and the ark to go with him, as he went forth into the mountain, where Moses climbed up, and saw the heritage of God. And when Jeremy came thither, he found an hollow cave, wherein he laid the tabernacle, and the ark, and the altar of incense, and so stopped the door. And some of those that followed him came to mark the way, but they could not find it. Which when Jeremy perceived, he blamed them, saying, As for that place, it shall be unknown until the time that God gather his people again together, and receive them unto mercy. Then shall the Lord shew them these things, and the glory of the Lord shall appear, and the cloud also, as it was shewed under Moses, and as when Solomon desired that the place might be honourably sanctified.” ~ 2 Maccabees 2:4-8
