Sometime in July, 2011, the dream of a man’s life will be completed. The strangest of dreams, but one in which he is putting into living reality, is a giant ship, built to the biblical specification as the exact dimensions of Noah’s Ark. It is now being finished for inauguration and launching along a waterfront shipyard in the City of Dordrecht in Western Netherlands. It is reported that Dutch tourists are clamoring for the privilege to see the real life creation of this biblical drama now waiting to be opened to the public.
This ship is not just a recreation of one of the bible’s best loved stories of antiquity, the Dutch builder Johan Huibers is expected to launch and literally sail this giant ship because of a real dream he had twenty years ago. As he tells his story:
Johan Huibers – “I dreamed a part of Holland was flooded, and then, the next day I get the idea to build an ark of Noah.”
With $1.6 million in personally invested money, Johan’s dream is about to be fulfilled. His first project was a proto-type built in 2004 of an “ark” at only 50% of the biblical dimensions of Noah’s Ark. Then he had the fun of taking the “ark” cruising down the multitude of canals in the Netherlands, to the great delight of the Dutch people and tourists. For $7 for visitation rights to ride the smaller prototype, with the receipt received, his dream to launch the real replica of Noah’s Ark began.
In January 24, 2010, Destination Yisra’el wrote the blog titled, “Dutch Man builds Replica of Noah’s Ark” as this ark was in the midst of its construction. As written:
Destination Yisra’el – “A working replica of Noah's Ark opened in a museum in Schagen, Netherlands. It was constructed by a descendant of the Lost Tribe of Zebulon, who were ancient Israeli mariners and merchant traders. He constructed the boat as a modern day replica constructing according to the exact scale given in the TaNaKh (Hebrew Old Testament).
The massive central door in the side of Noah's Ark was first opened to a crowd of curious townsfolk to behold the wonder. This replica of the biblical Ark was built by Dutch Creationist Johan Huibers as a testament to his faith in the literal truth of the Hebrew Scripture."

Starting three years ago in 2008, Johan Huibers, two of his children and several friends started building this wooden ship that will literally be housing many animals such as two elephant, giraffes, zebras, cows and a donkey, plus many other animals. They are not really live animals so his new animal park in the ship is being called “Johan’s faux animal park”. Enclosed is also a conference facility in two separate areas that have the capacity of seating 1,500 people, plus the ark will include a 50-seat theatre showing a segment of the Disney film Fantasia that retells the children’s story of Noah's Ark.
As Huibers completes the finishing touches on his ark, he plans to make the floating faux zoo a first-class tourist attraction. Keeping true to the biblical account of the Flood of Noah, “Johan’s Ark” measures in at 450 feet long, true to the Torah’s flood story of a 300 cubit-long ship, for in the ancient times, the cubit measurement was the length of a man’s arm from his elbows to the tip of his fingers. This averages about 18 inches for one cubit.
The ark also weighs an amazing 2,970 tons. According to Huibers in a report in the New York Times, the Ark is constructed of cedar and Swedish pine, in keeping with God’s command to Noah that the ark must be made of resin wood as a testimony of his belief that the Great Flood of Noah was true.
As the tourists ascend the plank into the Ark, they will see life-sized animal models standing around in an animal park along with a live menagerie of chickens and live fowl plus Noah’s famous dove they he sent out to scout for dry land after the flood was gone.
For most visitors such as the American visitor Lois Poppema told AP, the country of the Netherlands was very appropriate for such an ark to be built, for she had recently watched Al Gore talking on television that “all of Holland will be flooded.” As he documents in his Oscar-winning documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has been warning the world populations that when Greenland’s ice begins to seriously melt, the result of the glacier melting will be “absolutely devastating” to the low-lying land of the Netherlands.
While Al Gore was traveling the world, Johan and his family were recreating his own dream. Little did he comprehend that as soon as the ark was completed, the peoples of the world would truly actually fear for their own destruction by massive weather catastrophes.
Its not that Holland has ever had a flood. For centuries they have been fighting back the ocean waters in order to create their amazing culture that in many areas of Holland are below sea level. Even the city of Dordrecht in the Netherlands has been hit with floods on many occasions in their ancient history. These facts make the dream of Johan Huibers today come alive with an even greater reality.
Al Gore is not the only proponent that envisions that apocalyptic catastrophes are about to make significant changes in our world as we know it to be. Many others are predicting a magnetic pole shift, and even possible a partial to a complete geographic pole shift in the future. The results would be truly catastrophic.
Was the dream of Johan Huibers’, one of many Lost Tribes of Israel living in Northern Europe or the British, French, and Dutch colonies around the world, like America and Canada, a divine insight of possible saving lives as Johan and company will now be helping mankind as ones in “service to others?”
Then we have those who believe that we will soon see the incontrovertible evidence that Planet X or the Sumerian Nibiru will soon make a fly-by near to Planet Earth like it did 3500 to 3600 years ago at the time of the Egyptian Exodus of the Children of Israel. Just like the Empire of Egypt, the strongest nation in the world at that time was destroyed, so whichever part of the world will be facing directly the by-pass of Planet X or Nibiru will reap the most complete destruction of their civilized culture possibly during the Great Earthquake of the Sixth Seal of Revelation.
And then, will there be just one fly-by or two as Planet X encircles the Inner Planets during its perihelion around the sun, traversing through the Comet Belt before making a second fly-by at the final revealing of the Messiah? One of the tenants of BibleSearchers is that all the cycles of destruction and redemption directed by the Sovereign might of the Divine One of Israel, that the ancient Hebrews (Jews and Lost Tribers alike) lived through and experienced, will be revisited and experienced at the time of the end. If so, Johan and his Ark may become a vehicle of salvation for many people living in the Netherlands in the near future.

If you have come to the realization that life as we know it is now over, and that apocalyptic natural catastrophes are now becoming a norm in our lives? You might desire to reconnect with the Biblical portrayals of what is and may be happening in your near future.
This Biblical portrayal includes Prophecies that the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel are about to return to the Land of their Biblical Inheritance. This is Divine Destiny in living reality as the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel return to their Homelands first in Shomron (Samaria), Israel.

Here is a joint Orthodox Jewish and 10-Triber Mission to bring awareness of the imminent fulfillment of the Biblical Prophecies regarding the Redemption of all Israel (12 Tribes Re-conciled and Re-United). This super Event of all Times will entail Establishing the Shomron (the Ancient Bible Heartland of the Patriarchs) and the Judean Wilderness as part of the Land of Israel, and preparing the “Land” for the Return of the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel and then the Redemption of All Israel.
