All Hands, Abandon Ship

9:00am –  “bergs, growlers and field ice”
1:42pm – “passing icebergs and large quantities of field ice”
1:45pm – “passed two large icebergs”
7:30pm –  “three large bergs”
9:40pm – “Saw much heavy pack ice and great number large icebergs. Also field ice.
At 10:30pm The final warning was transmitted from operator Cyril Evans of the Californian. The ship had stopped for the night in an ice field some miles away, but the radio operator receiving the warning cut it off and signaled back: “Shut up! Shut up! I’m working Cape Race.” As he was sending passenger messages (like texts) to another station to relay back home.   Exactly one hour and nine minutes later the Titanic hit an iceberg that they had been warned about. Two hours and forty minutes later, she was gone along with 1,502 people on her.   The Titanic had received several ice warnings, but ignored them. 4/11 – 6 Warnings 4/12 – 5 Warnings 4/13 – 3 Warnings 4/14 – 7 Warnings   The old testament prophets provided many warnings as well, But few listened.
  • But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die.” (Ezekiel 18:21)

Jesus came and died on the cross for our sins. He didn’t stay dead, he arose on the third day and is currently with his father in heaven.  But he’s not going to stay there either.  One day soon, he’ll return for his church. We need to be ready.   But When? The BIBLE has provided us with all the answers!

  •  “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matthew 24:36)

Don’t be like the Titanic and ignore the warnings you have been given.  Each time you hear of the saving grace of JESUS and disregard that small voice that tells you to “Come”, you ignore the lifesaving message. I tell you that we have ALREADY hit the iceberg, and we are SINKING fast. There is not much time for you to run and cling to the lifeboat (Jesus).  ALL HANDS, TO THE LIFEBOAT.
