LETTER TO MY TRUE FRIENDS:
ETERNITY IS REAL O!
. . . ON APRIL 14, 1912
"Gentlemen, I regret to say that the Titanic sank at 2:20 this morning."
The Titanic was the largest ship and the most luxurious ship ever built. The First-class accommodations in the ship rivaled the finest hotels on shore with dining hall that could seat 500 people in one room --on a ship! On her maiden voyage,the ship carried 2223 people but had lifeboats for only 1178. The passengers included some of the world's greatest millionaires. One of the best known was John Jacob Astor. He died as did many others as famous or nearly as wealthy as he was. The man who designed the ship was also on board and perished in the sea with 1516 others.
In life, wealthy people may have some advantages, but in death, all are equal. Ecclesiastics 5:15-- as he came from his mother's womb, naked shall he return, to go as he came; and he shall take nothing from his labour which he may carry away in his hand.
Besides rich people, the Titanic included many poor people in third class.
John Jacob Astor and other wealthy men were turned away from the lifeboats because the rule was "women and children first."
likewise, no amount of money can ultimately prevent a man's death. Therefore, God warns men not to trust in riches
1Tim 6:17--Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain
riches...."
Matt 16:26--For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
After this life, all men, rich and poor, will face their eternal destinies. John Jacob Astor, with all his millions, could no more buy a place in heaven than he could in one of those lifeboats.
When we face Jesus in judgement, what matters is how we lived, not how much we were worth.
Many passengers and crew members believed the Titanic to be unsinkable, and the ship's designers believed it was almost true. One passenger asked a ship's agent for extra insurance on some valuables in her luggage. The agent replied, "Ridiculous. This boat's unsinkable."
Captain Smith himself was asked about the safety of the Titanic. He answered: "I cannot imagine any condition which would cause a ship to founder. I cannot conceive of any vital disaster happening to this vessel. Modern shipbuilding has gone beyond that."
After the ship had struck an iceberg, a passenger asked her employer if they should do something about it. He replied, "Go back to bed. This ship is unsinkable."
The ship grazed the iceberg, slicing open a long section of its side and it began to list as it took on more water.
When early reports about the tragedy began to gradually reach America, Philip Franklin, vice president of the White Star Line in New York, responded,
"We place absolute confidence in the Titanic. We believe that the boat is unsinkable."
One passenger asked a dock hand, "Is this ship really unsinkable?"
The man replied,
"Yes, lady. God Himself couldn't sink this ship"
People have such faith and pride in human achievements, that they don't realize their need for God. Or they trust human learning: science, technology, or psychology. They believe we can completely control our world and do anything we want without depending on God.
People begin to think of various aspects of their lives: "Not even God can sink this ship."
But the Bible says:
Prov. 16: 18--Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.
When men develop pride, God often teaches us how humble and weak we really are.
Psa. 9:20--"put them in fear, O LORD, that the nations may know themselves to be but men."
There are also some people who believe that once they have become a child of God, nothing can cause them to lose their salvation(The doctrine of once saved, always saved.) They have concluded that their relationship with God is ''unsinkable" just like people thought of the Titanic
1Cor. 10:12--let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he falls.
In 1Cor. 9:27, Paul had to bring his body in subjection lest he himself should be disqualified.
2Pet 2:20-22--People who have escaped the pollutions of the world can yet become entangled in them again...."
The Titanic struck the iceberg shortly before midnight and sank two and a half hours later at 2:20am. Some passengers were asleep but many were still partying. The band was playing. People were dancing, eating, enjoying life. None expected to die that night.
Job 14:2-- man comes forth; he flees like a shadow and does not continue.
Of the 2223 people onboard, only 706 survived, others perished in the sea.
Like the people on the Titanic, our lives can end any moment. Not only death, but also Jesus' coming will be sudden and unexpected.
Since 14th of April 1912 till today 21st of July 2016, the victims of the Titanic mishap have spent 104 years 3 months and 7 days in eternity. Though we're still here, we'll cross over too someday.
If we're not born again, we may be caught unawares and be made to face eternity in HELL.
Please Invite Jesus into your life boat friends, for it's stormy and cold out there"
