Here are the tops of 2016, according to Christianity Today. You can also search out tops for 2015, 2014 etc:

If we start seeing BIG FINDS, things which incontrovertibly point toward God's truth..Hang on! ...Because in my opinion, the Savior's return is near. Anyone share my opinion?

Do we really need to see these finds? Will it really make any real difference in ones Biblical beliefs?
They haven't so far or they wouldn't keep looking. Faith isn't archeology like looking for dinosaurs.

I keep hoping that someone will find the Ark of the Covenant.
I see people turning their backs on any religion (except islam) and that could save millions of souls.

democrats are in favor of the wholesale slaughter of God's most precious; unborn babies.

The Ark of the Covenant is not to be approached by just anyone. We have all seen examples of this in the Bible.

Yes this is exciting. But if nothing is found or if it is. That does not change my beliefs or any of you here I am sure.
It's an artefact, it will still be discounted and picked apart by the unbelievers no matter how significant that proof is.

In that it still reverts back to your own faith. That's the significance of anything relating to this. God or science doesn't need to prove anything to me. He said it, it's true, end of story.

I don't care for any of this. I have my Lord savior Jesus Christ that is all i need. I attempt to save others if they will not listen then Ive done all that i can.

I will not present artifacts as proof of anything. I do not need to defend my beliefs in any way. My Lord God is not a museum attraction.

I'm doubtful that the signs will make any difference. Christ demonstrated that He was God through signs, wonders and miracles. The Jewish nation as a whole turned their backs on Him after seeing these things. Christ said that all that the Father gives Him will come to Him. I'm based on the words of Christ and the historical examples in the Gospels and the book of Acts.

There is nothing in the world so damaged that it cannot be repaired by the hand of almighty God.

I encourage you to know this because without this certainty we should all of us be mad.

I enjoy seeing Biblical Archaeology, don't need it of course, we have relationship once we answer the knock on the door of the heart. But I am moved by His evidence He has preserved.
This is about Mt. Sinai and I have enjoyed it very much, hope you do as well.

No amount of Biblical evidence will ever be "enough" for a person who does not answer His call.

Here is another, longer one about Mt. Sinai

Come quickly, Lord Jesus

NISKA. Neither do I need signs or artifacts, but I still enjoy seeing them, kinda like shoving proof right in the faces of the non believers.
Another reason I like them is that there are some who may come to believe as Thomas did, who doubted it was Jesus by seeing Jesus scars. POWDERMAN.
