Tangible Evidence

       Even though there has been an ever-present force of skepticism for the belief of Jesus, the amount of evidence for Him, is impossible for anyone to hide. If you're curious, all you have to do is go look with an open mind and heart. Be willing and able to receive information peacefully, and rationally. You can even search as a skeptic like I once did, and find piles and piles of arguments against anything for that matter. I never found irrefutable facts, or convincing evidence that went past scratching the surface. They were always heavily laced with assumptions, or unbacked claims. We should always try searching out anything, as though it could be the truth, or it could not be. That is an open mind.

       This is the only so called "Religion" where "Digging" brings you all the way back to the beginning of time with its origin, and actually has evidence for it all along the way. The evidence to support the Bible, is still being uncovered more, almost every day. "He" has left more than enough for you to come seeking him. He wants you to search, he wants you to find him, and his "hidden agenda", has always been love and purpose the entire time. We are here for only a short time, primarily to make a choice. 

Biblical Archeology

These two videos are absolutely packed with amazing and awesome information. They don't just verify a few stories of the Bible, but so many of them.  This Tangible Evidence section is comparatively short compared to the rest of the sections, but that is because it's not really about writings. It is mostly about what we can pull out of the ground. Tangible evidence is the stuff we can see and touch, so the details are best just left in the amazing videos. Watch and enjoy, and by all means, go out and see the stuff for yourself.

       These videos are from a man who found himself in the same situation as many of us have, a crisis of faith. A place when you reach a point in your life, where you think quite possibly, there may not be anything holding up what you have put your faith into. A time to see if there is any real evidence to support what the Bible says.

       The people who made these videos happen, did a phenomenal job, and I truly believe God was behind them every step of the way. When I first saw these I really didn't expect much substance. I certainly did not expect them to be so well organized, produced, or massively in depth as the are. Of course, there is only one way to find out, so I bought them.

       Let me say, I was clapping with amazement and joy with the home runs that these videos hit. I was VERY pleasantly surprised. He had explained all of the same strange things I had found with my personal search. Before watching these, I had already previously gone down the trail of who the pharaoh of exodus was, and I came to the literary conclusion it was not the supposed rameses people have claimed it to be, from a time period that didn't make any sense. There was another Rameses, who had lived earlier and fit the mold very well. However, the trail I went down was very long, and had many tangents, with sparse evidence shared. It was not something I could easily post, or put my finger on. These videos explain it all SO well and this man went there, and got those answers himself. 

       I cannot condone these videos enough. Go to the site and download or buy these videos, for a great, in-depth study of each topic.

 Jesus' Tomb

"Jesus' Crucifixion Site? (A 'Skull', Garden & Tomb)" 7:36

     The Shroud of Turin is indeed something that commands attention. Shroud expert Russ Breault said it best, when he said, I cannot prove this is the shroud of Jesus, but I also can't ignore all of these remarkably precise details, that are very consistent with the unusual events in the scriptures, of Jesus's crucifixion.

      Watching the receipt of the resurrection really ought to get your attention. He also makes a lot of videos and other material which can be bought at his website here if you want to hear more.

https://shroudencounter.com/shroud-store/

 

     The other video is the very interesting story of the photographer who was there when they inspected the shroud.  He gives a lot of amazing details and back stories of what happened during the scientific inspection.  As usually there is a lot that has happened that people don't want to tell you. He also has a very detailed website with all of his findings at this site:

        Eventually, you may begin to wonder about the data. What facts do we have surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus? Take a look at this next link for that.  Each topic can be researched to your own desire, but it goes over the usual topics of evidence, like the huge stone that was moved, the empty, tomb, the Roman seal that was broken, the roman watch guards, and more. 

http://www.israeljerusalem.com/jesus-tomb.htm

       We know there is plenty of evidence to prove that Jesus did indeed exist. As well as, others who verified that he made the claims, the Bible says he made. Even those who aren't Christians admit that. But are there any witnesses who can attest to the events not only during his life before the crucifixion, but also after it? Including his reappearance after death. Yes! There is a lot!

The Story of a Miracle

       This is a portrait of Jesus, done by a young Akiane Kramarik at the age of 8.  She was said to have started receiving "Visions" at a young age and started to paint them, one would think that it is just from her imagination until, one of her paintings got Identified, by a very peculiar individual.

 

       Unbeknownst to her, that face she painted was identified by Colton Burpo, and it is no surprise after hearing this amazing story, that many individuals believe this is indeed the portrait of Jesus himself.

       Colton was a very young boy that died on the operating table and came back with all sorts of information he could not have otherwise known, he could not possible have faked it.  It was all documented in the book "Heaven is for real".  A summarization of that story about these two kids is right here. The book is very worth reading.

http://godreports.com/2012/01/for-child-art-prodigy-akiane-jesus-is-for-real/

"Beware the sound of one hand Clapping."

       Preconceived bias is an issue that applies to every group on the planet. The phrase "Beware the sound of one hand clapping", is referring to that problem, and not one person is immune to it. All Christians should admit that they are sinners who believe, and try to follow Christ, and even though we should always be trying to do the right thing, not one person follows Christ as much as we wish we could have. What this phrase is saying, is that you need to hear both sides of an argument, before a reasonable conclusion can be made.  Proverbs eighteen:seventeen speaks to this, "The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbor comes and examines him."

       We should all know by now that for any voice that speaks up, there is always someone else out there to tell you they are wrong, or lying. The entire battle creationists fight, is because the scientific community will only hear arguments from one "hand".  To be honest the same can often be said for those who have been raised to believe in God, never listening to what evolutionists believe. Not that this is war, but how can one defeat the opposition, if they don't understand their enemy?  So we rise up and try to cross examine the evidence, learn the material, and check to see what all of the data presents, for every possible hypothesis on the table. There are many evolutionist's who have become creationists, simply because they have spotted that people are not doing honest science. They aren't acknowledging all of the data at hand, and they are deliberately ignoring what is going against their preconceived bias, because they don't want that result for whatever personal reason. In other words, they are forcing the data to fit what they want to be true. They often openly admit, that they hate the idea of answering to a higher moral power.

       Many of us have seen more than enough evidence for the Bible, outside of Ron Wyatt's work to be very strong in our faith. Be that as it may, when it comes to looking for supporting evidence, it is extremely important to be as truthful as we can. Imagine if in in a court case someone has shown countless proofs of evidence on a matter, but the jury is still undecided, only because they are a biased jury. The defendant can see that they almost have them convinced of their claims, but they are tired, they don't like what you are, and they just want to be done. In a moment of weakness the defendant decides, I'll just tell a quick lie, that will shut them up, and we can all just be done with it. Imagine what will happen when that lie is exposed, it will shake how they feel about the credibility of all the other valid proofs of evidence that they have presented.

       Even though the massive amounts of evidence is all still there and valid, it would make them feel as though they need to go back through all of it again, because they no longer trust the defendant. How many other lies did you get past us? Everyone is already tired of dealing with the matter, and they certainly don't want to go through it all over again. They will just make up their mind, and forget everything else presented. They will take that one lie and shout it from the roof tops to drag your name through the mud. They didn't want your evidence in the first place anyway. Never forget, we are usually talking to people who already have a bias. On top of that, people have been taught Darwin's evolution from a very young age in our own public schools, and it is harped on in nearly every documentary on television. They almost always enter the conversation convinced that we are the type of person who is wishfully thinking, or must be easily fooled.

       In the case of Ron Wyatt and his findings, many people have come against him. They call him, his family, and any of his crew liars. That has happened even in the Christian, creationist community. Ron has brought forth a lot of very good, and undeniable evidence, and sent it off for 3rd party testing. Much of what he found in Saudi Arabia, people already knew all about it, he just went and showed the western culture because we didn't know about it.  Many people have even gone out to see if it's true.  Other people have indeed found these sulphur balls, thermal ionization, monument towers at the Sodom and Gomorrah site, and a lot of proof of the Jewish people around the proposed Mount Sinai. Even photos of these unusual coral structures have surfaced, and they are clearly in very unnatural shapes. Shapes that very closely resembling the shapes of Egyptian chariot wheels. They are being found at the bottom of the proposed "Sea of reeds".

 

       Many others have visited this ark site as well, but I have yet to see anyone who has called him a liar, provide evidence to show that the ark site is a lie. I have only seen one article saying that there is nothing there. Maybe they don't want to stop people reaching faith if this is how they came to that faith? However, that is wrong too! In my opinion there is nothing worse than lying for the right reasons. When the lie gets found out, it shakes the foundations of faith for the overall truth that they are trying to support. Especially, if they came to find faith through that lie. They will feel betrayed and fooled, and probably run the other way when they do.

        The Ark site is a good example of incomplete data, there is definitely good reason to examine this, but we always have to be careful with it, maintaining a strict basis of support. There will always be matters out there that are not yet settled. If you aren't comfortable making up your mind on a topic, then don't settle on a conclusion. Let the case remain open, and go digging until you are satisfied. The places I have always found the deepest faith, are the places where I thought I was going to expose claims. Claims that just seemed too fantastic to be true. When people are already bias, they tend to be apprehensive to take that step to find out if it is true, or not. That is because they want the beliefs they have settled on to be true, they don't want to see anything that is going to mess with it. However, if all you want is the truth, then great! That is the beginning to finding some real answers. Just remember to be as thorough as you can, and don't throw down your shovel after two digs. Go see what you can find, and cross examine it when you find it. If it is the truth, it is bound to leave some patterns of evidence.  

       When people do science, they should actually follow the scientific method, and be sure to include an honest control group, and provide their data and exact methods. For example, as you will see, we don't all have ground penetrating scanners, or have a clue what normal ground should look like, when using one of these devices. How are we to know what common occurrences are that show up in normal ground, beyond them just telling us that it is unique? Granted we can see their point with what they show us as they explain it, and listen to why they believe what they have found. However this is the time where the control is that extra step, that is meant to solidify our faith in their findings, by offering closed and controlled examples to compare it to. Wouldn't it be nice if each hand of the so-called science being done, followed the scientific method every single time. Of course, we are still reliant to trust the material that came from the site, and that the methods of testing are truthful, and the controls are trustworthy.  The hard truth is, sometimes we may just have to go and find out for ourselves.

The Search for Mount Sinai

       The search for Mount Sinai hinges on where the Jewish people crossed the Red Sea, or Sea of Reeds to be more biblically accurate. There is debate about that, between those who are paying attention to all of the exact words of the Bible, and those who are not, as you will see when you watch the amazing, "Patterns of Evidence" movies. One thing is for sure, a whole bunch of very interesting evidence has been found in Saudi Arabia.

 

       The Saudi Arabian Government has put very solid, high, and barbed wire fences all around these sites with threats of death if you cross them without permission. There are a lot of petroglyphs etched into the surrounding rocks.  The images carved into these rocks, are all images that indicate the Jewish people have been there. Such as, menorahs,  Proto Sinaitic script reading "Yahweh", Jewish head stones, there are also sacrificial alters, images of a bull, water wells matching the exact numbers of the bible, etc. There is clearly too much there to brush off. Just take a look at this video provided by:

https://discoveredsinai.com

The Red Sea Crossing

       There is a large amount of prophecy as well as stories, that have been literarily cross verified document after document, from separate places of origin. As the next sections will get into in a lot of detail.  BUT, is there any archeological evidence from the stories of all of these writings?  Some of the most amazing epics ever told are in the Bible.  The Red Sea Crossing, Sodom and Gomorrah, Noah's Ark and the Great Flood, The Walls of Jericho, etc, etc... The consequences of these stories, leaves one thinking, "There would have to be some sort of evidence for at least one of them. Where is it all?"

       The purpose of this entire website is to try to bring what's already out there, all to one place in order to make the search easier. Especially for those just finding out about all of this. There is so much evidence it is overwhelming. Picking which examples to put on this site was tricky, because there is so much, we are going to stick to the big exciting stories and see what we can find.

 

       The Bible says an entire army got trapped under a sea, we know what sea it is, and nobody has ever found anything??

Quite the contrary, here are few links all about it.

       If you clicked on those links above and explored the websites, you can see there are some very interesting shapes in the reef, that reefs aren't usually in the shape of. As well as the obvious wagon wheel as shown in the top left. These again are taken from Ron Wyatt.  This entire section could just be a link to his site, with everything he and his sons have found, specifically as it pertains to Biblical evidence.

        The computer image imposed inside the reef to show what is believed to be inside of the protected reef. There are those with an agenda, who say Ron was a liar and try to debunk him as a nut. As for the naysayers we can be grateful Ron found these things before the days of superior video imaging programs. Everything he found is on "Tape" and his findings have been well documented. Then he backed them up with 3rd part lab analysis whenever possible. Take the time to ask them, why they think he is liar, and their only argument is usually, "Because there's no way one guy could have found all that." Not very good detective work in that response, is there. The question is has anybody else gone there? Not only have they gone there, they've gone back with better, more modern equipment, and what they find is the same thing with more detail. 

       Someone tried to convince me they had found the real Sodom and Gomorrah, and they hadn't even heard of Ron Wyatt's find, what he found there, and top of that their site didn't have any sulphur, or artifacts to confirm the dig. There is always someone looking for glory, and they will say and do a lot, but I tend to trust those who spend their money looking for the truth, not the ones who are looking to make money off the topic. 

       A visit to his website is imperative for a greater understanding, of the where, and how.  His stories are amazing, and his findings are even more amazing. It's easy to call anybody a liar, forget the personal attacks and just stick to the evidence, is it there or not? Go look.

Noah's Ark

Genesis 8: 3 - 4 

       The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down, and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. 

        Now you would think that finding a boat the size of the Ark, as described in detail in the bible, on a mountain top would be an amazing find and hit the media by storm. It was reported by some news channels, but it certainly wasn't by storm out of fear of reprisal. People in their minds expect to see a big pretty wooden boat, but it is a very old ark, and because the wooden structure has melded into the mountain over the past 4,400 or so years, it pretty much looks like it is the mountain in a picture.

(Why 4,400 years or so?)

"THE REAL NOAH'S ARK FOUND / IN PLAIN SIGHT!" 10:11

"Noah's Flood vs the Epic of Gilgamesh" 14:10

      It doesn't exactly jump out at you like we have seen in our movies, or picture Bibles, so the old vessel doesn't get the attention she deserves. Never-the-less, there are some extremely peculiar facts about this site. This aberration in the terrain on what happens to be the Ararat Mountains referred to in the Bible, are the only ridged spines of petrified wood found anywhere on the smooth mountain.  

 

It gets better!

       The dimensions of the this formation happen to match the exact dimensions of that given in the bible for the ark. 515 feet or 300 Egyptian cubits.  (An Egyptian, not a Hebrew cubit would have been known to Moses who lived and studied in Egypt And believed to have written Genesis.) see link: https://www.blueletterbible.org/faq/don_stewart/don_stewart_676.cfm

       Those 3 ridges you can see in the closest ridge in the mountain view photo, are petrified wood and they have been tested by a lab to prove it. They are part of the support framing.  Rivets made of alloys like aluminum and titanium were found on these beams of petrified wood and have also been tested. F.Y.I., these metals are man made and do not exist in nature. They have even drilled into the site and pulled out animal dung, antlers, and different types of hair.  That's not all! They have even found an ancient sales shop near by that sold merchandise to visitors that say Noah's ark on it! Even Flavius Josephus writes about it in his day and says, "Its remains are shown there by the inhabitants to this day." in his book. 

The list just keeps going. The amount of information about this is amazing.

Here is a GREAT site that gets way into and shows the findings.

http://www.arkdiscovery.com/noah's_ark.htm

The Ark sight has since been radar scanned, putting to rest any doubt that this is not a giant boat that matches the dimensions of the ark. You can see the images at 

http://noahsarkscans.nz

       I have heard from a few people, "But what about the epic of Gilgamesh? Doesn't that predate the flood showing that the bible copied it?"  To be honest, the people I have heard that from, haven't read the Bible or the Epic.  They are typically running off hearsay, but that is where vast interpretation comes from isn't it.  

       There is nothing wrong with buckling down and read things for yourself, and it sure does make things a lot easier when it comes time to make a decision between a lie or a life changing truth. This video "Noah's Flood vs the Epic of Gilgamesh", does a fantastic job of hitting this giant right between the eyes.  It also goes into a very fascinating topic, on how many ancient and still currently used, Chinese characters tell bible stories. 

 

       God has done amazing things throughout every aspect of life, don't be a surface scratcher who never digs down deep enough to have some serious faith. This stuff is everywhere, but

Sodom and Gomorrah

brimstone-and-fire-Sodom.jpg

       Two entire cities have been burnt to the ground by burning sulfur (brimstone). Not everybody has an understanding of chemistry in the back of their mind, but when sulfur is burnt, it gets extremely hot and can melt rock burning at upwards of 2,750 Degrees Fahrenheit.  Needless to say, that story would leave a mark for sure! So where is it? We should definitely be able to find it considering the amount of maps and literature about the layout of the land in those days.

Genesis 19:23-28

 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.

       Here they are at the southern end of the Dead Sea. How do we know that these are in fact the spots? They're location is well documented biblically and again in Flavious Josephus' book, and they are covered in white ash and almost pure sulphur, and there are very cooked, man-made formations in the cities, including ziggurats, sphinxes, windows, arched doorways, and walls, we have seen before, known as the "Double Canaanite city walls." 

       There are swirl patterns on the rock walls indicating an extremely hot fire had burnt the faces of the rocks, due to the thermal ionization that has occurred to achieve this known effect.  There are also thousands, and thousands, of little pellets melted into the rock in this area with burn rings around them in the land. When you crack the pellets open, they have pure unburnt sulphur inside them.

This section on Ron's site has many pictures and much more all about it.

How to get ETERNAL LIFE 

according to the Bible

Believe in your heart Jesus is The Lord, and that God raised him from the dead. 

Declare it with your mouth, and you will be saved.

       If you believe Jesus is your savior, be thankful! We're going home to place where 1 Corinthians 2:9 happens!

       But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

       If you aren't quite sure Jesus is your savior, put your heart out on a limb. Nobody even needs to know you said it, God knows. It doesn't cost you anything, it is very easy, the reward is eternal life, just take a moment to believe,

 Jesus is who he said he is.

Even if nothing happened, you are still in the same place you were before. The risk vs. reward here is an easy decision. 

John 3: 12-21

       If I have told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man has ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man who is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he that does truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are worked in God.

Acts 11: 16-18

       Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.’ So if God gave them the same gift he gave us who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to think that I could stand in God’s way?” When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.”

Acts 19:1-5

While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?”

They answered, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”

So Paul asked, “Then what baptism did you receive?”

“John’s baptism,” they replied.

Paul said, “John’s baptism was a baptism of repentance. He told the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.” On hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Romans 10:9-10

       If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9

        For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Ephesians 1:13-14

And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

Matthew 7:21

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”

What is the will of The Father?

John 6:39-40

“And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

 

If you want mercy, show mercy.
