Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Dutchman Builds Exact Replica of Noah's Ark To Show Bible is True.

After experiencing a nightmare that a flood would drown the Netherlands, a Dutchman decided to build a replica of Noah's Ark to show that the Bible is true. He raised over $1million dollars in bank loans to back his project.  Now his ark will be featured on the Thames River at the London,  England, Summer Olympics. Life-size animals are part of the project, including giraffes, to show how they fit into the ark. One piece of information he may know, written in Jewish commentaries on the Torah portion of Noah: the reason G-d had Noah build the ark is because it took him a very long time and the Almighty hoped that people would question Noah and would repent when they heard that a great Flood was coming.

While Noah will likely always remain the first name in arks, tourists are chomping at the bit to climb aboard “Johan’s Ark,” an ambitious re-creation of the biblical boat that’s attracting gawkers galore along a waterfront shipyard in Dordrecht, a city in the western Netherlands.
Dutch builder Johan Huibers is expected to complete work on the massive vessel sometime next month in what has been a staggeringly ambitious project to bring one of the best-known stories of the Bible to life. It’s taken three years of his life and $1.6 million out of his pocket, but Huibers, owner of a successful construction company in Holland, says the project is a dream come true — literally.
“I dreamed a part of Holland was flooded,” Huibers, 60, told Janet Shamlian in a report that aired on TODAY Wednesday. “Then, the next day I get the idea to build an ark of Noah.”
