The Titanic and You

We all know the story. The Titanic, a British passenger liner, struck an iceberg off Newfoundland on the night of April 14-15, 1912, and sank. It was a tragedy of enormous proportions.

What a splendid ship! Everything a ship designer could imagine was built into it. It was beautiful, magnificent, TITANIC!

It slid out to sea from Liverpool, England, on a serene April morning. Gleaming against the sky, it was majestic. The pride of Britannia rode out to sea. New York was its next harbor.

The notables of society were its passengers and they basked in the splendor of its luxury. Elegance was the word for Titanic's interior. Lavish in its decor, menus, and entertainment, it surpassed the highest expectations of its passengers.

Three-quarters into its maiden voyage-on the fringe of Newfoundland's frigid banks-the Titanic became a catastrophic nightmare. A deceptively large iceberg, detached from the polar ice fields, was drifting into the North Atlantic shipping lanes, destined to keep a predetermined encounter with the fabulous Titanic.

Within two hours, before the dawn of April 15, 1912, the unsinkable Titanic plunged to its death four miles below the icy surface, taking with it more than 1500 souls (including most of the crew) and all its treasure.

But most remarkable of all, the story of the Titanic has incredibly close parallels to the Biblical plan of salvation as the following points illustrate:

"Not even God could sink the Titanic," was the boast of those who put their confidence in a ship built by men. Today we also have the deadly tendency to have excessive pride in our own resources. "As we travel through life, who really needs God anyway? I can make it on my own."

"Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall." Proverbs 16:18.

Even when the Titanic struck the iceberg, the crew and passengers were confident that the "small" iceberg could do little damage. We also are deceived into thinking that sin is minor and of little consequence.

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Galatians 6:7.

Especially following the underwater discovery of the sunken Titanic, maritime experts have suggested that the structural steel then in use in the Titanic's plates became brittle at icy temperatures and may have fractured after simply bumping the iceberg. Thus there was a major flaw in the construction of the steel. It should have been made more flexible, less brittle, so that it would bend and give rather than break. It has been said that the Ark was made by amateurs and the Titanic was made by experts. The difference is that the amateurs were guided by God and the experts made a fatal mistake. Hundreds of people put their trust in the engineering genius and production of man.

"Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. . . Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is." Jeremiah 17:5,7.

Official inquiries determined that the Titanic was traveling too fast for the known icy conditions. The excessive speed seemed reasonable. They wanted to make good time and they believed that the ship was invincible.

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 14:12.

This drama of the sea illustrates the uncertainty of life and our need to be ready to stand before our Maker and Judge. When hundreds of very wealthy people initially boarded the Titanic an imminent death was a thought that was not even entertained. We never know when God will call us to pass from time into eternity.

"And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?" Luke 12:19-20.

Just as the great pleasure ship struck an iceberg and sank, so also this great world, with all its inhabitants, is slowly sinking into the cold grip of death.

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment....For the wages of sin is death." Hebrews 9:27 and Romans 6:23.

One of the problems that resulted in such loss of life was that the Titanic was poorly equipped for such a disaster. There were not enough life boats for the number of people on board. There was only enough room for relatively few to be saved. When it comes to the salvation of sinful men, there is but ONE LIFEBOAT, none other than our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. God's Lifeboat, unlike the small boats on the Titanic, has ample room for all those who recognize the great danger that they are in and who put their trust in God's only Saviour and what He did for them on the cross. Those who refuse God's one Lifeboat will perish.

"I, even I, am the LORD, and beside Me there is no Savior....For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Isaiah 43:11 and John 3:16.

"And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." 1 John 5:11-12.

My friend, as you travel on life's journey, it is possible for you to know for sure that you will arrive safely on eternity's shore. Your decision now will determine your future destiny. God has provided the perfect LIFEBOAT for you. If we can be of spiritual help to you, please contact us.

In 1898, 14 years before the Titanic made her maiden voyage, Morgan Robertson published a fictitious book entitled, FUTILITY: The Wreck of the Titan. This was the story of an "unsinkable" massive ocean liner, which like the Titanic, was crossing the Atlantic Ocean (traveling from America to England) in that same month of April, with 3,000 people on board. Trying to cross the ocean in record time, it too struck an iceberg (near midnight) and sank. Not only were the ships’ names very similar, but most on board also perished simply because there was a lack of lifeboats (only 13 survived).

Lying Black Leaders Tout Highway to Hell

The Father of Lies is really whipping up his hordes lately, and this week we have heard the most despicable, lying words out of the mouths of these people under Satan’s sway who hate their own country and their fellow American citizens.

We are still seeing the most ridiculous reaction to the killing in Florida of the black teenager, Trayvon Martin, by the neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, who claims to have been acting in self-defense. The disgusting overreaction by race-baiting black leaders is grossly irrational, because these people are calling for violence and working their followers up into a senseless frenzy over this single incident of what does appear to be legitimate self-defense by Zimmerman, while at the same time they ignore the epidemic scourge of black on black murders that plagues this nation.

This past week, Jesse Jackson, Jeremiah Wright and representatives of the New Black Panther Party all contributed to the polluted discourse of the communist Left. In the case of the New Black Panthers, we are dealing with seriously deranged people who have the sickest of minds and the most diseased of spirits. They are calling for violence in our streets, but the racist Justice Department under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) does not lift a finger to hold them accountable for their reprehensible, even criminal, words—words which could be said to have inspired recent black on white violence, such as the terrible group of blacks beating and robbing a white man on St. Patrick’s Day in Baltimore, or the black, animal punks who viciously beat a 78-year-old white man in Toledo while yelling, “This is for Trayvon!”

The New Black Panther audio from last week features Michelle Williams of the Tampa chapter of the New Black Panthers and Chawn Kweli, a national New Black Panther spokesmouth on a conference call with their fellow traveling idiots.

Here is a sample of what they said, courtesy of The Blaze,
Williams: I just want to say to all the listeners on this phone call, that if you are having any doubt about getting suited, booted, and armed up for this race war that we’re in that has never ended, let me tell you somethin…the thing that’s about to happen these honkies, these crackers, these pigs, these people, these [m- f-s]…it has been long overdue.”

Kweli: “Ya, what she said was right– we got to suit up and boot up…and get prepared for the war that we’re in…this stuff got to boil over, and all your [greats] talked about that happened to be bloodshed involved with revolution- true revolution means some bloodshed, so there’s blood being spilled because there’s a new life that is beyond this bloodshed. There is a new reality that is built upon your original African principles and spiritualities and values and norms that is beyond this bloodshed. But we gotta go do it.
“And as the Scripture said, you gotta to cross it. We gon’ have to cross the Red Sea….I know y’all thought it was talking about some sea in some Middle Eastern part of the world- hell no. We’re talking about some blood. You’re gonna have to cross some blood, and go through some blood and some battles.
“And there are those who wish they could stand in this hour, to see the destruction of the devil’s world and the devil’s society- and I‘m ain’t talking about no dude underneath the ground with a pitchfork and pantyhose. I’m talking about that blonde haired, blue-eyed, sometimes brown-eyed, Caucasian walkin around with a mindset, a demonistic mindset, and a nature to do evil and brutality.”
That is more than enough to give you an idea of the evil minds of these degenerate vegetables. They go on to declare that they are also at war with capitalism itself, because they blame capitalism for all their woes—well, capitalism and “white” people, that is. How typical of the radical Left to try to blame others for their own problems which result from their own bad behavior and their own bad choices.

These maniacs on that conference call are ranting about black people being under attack by racism. Apparently they would not know real racism if it bit them in the face, since they seem unable to see it staring, glaring back at them from their own mirrors. Yes, these vicious racists are enemies of their own country, the country in which they were blessed to be born, even though they are too blinded by their mindless hatred to see the gifts that God has given them.

The same is true for Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright. Jackson abused Scripture to push the Left’s insane class warfare platform when he slandered Jesus with the moronic claim that Jesus is just like the Occupy loons, because he says Jesus was a class warfare proponent—a damnable lie.

And, Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s dear leader “pastor” of twenty years, said some of the most astonishingly ignorant words you can imagine. But, just like the Devil, Wright manages to weave a grain of truth into a big wad of lies as he declares in part,
The god of racists is not the God of righteousness. The god of the greedy is not the God of grace.
Of course God is not for racial hatred and greed, but then Wright steps back in it when he says,

      Those are two different gods and I ain’t talking about Allah and Yahweh. Those are the same names for the same God.

Jeremiah Wright and Jesse Jackson both show themselves to be stunningly ignorant of the Word of God, or at least unable to discern its meaning. For Wright to claim that the God of Christianity and Judaism is the same god as worshipped by the Islamists shows a complete lack of understanding of Who God is, because if Allah exists, he is surely Satan, who long ago set himself up as an arch-enemy of God. And, for Jackson to say that Jesus has anything at all in common with the brain-addled, anarchist Occupiers is a display of profound ignorance of Who Jesus is.

Even the vicious New Black Panther goon invoked and misused Scripture when referring to crossing the Red Sea, which he twisted from the miraculous event of the Lord leading the Israelites out of Egypt ahead of the Egyptian army and through the Red Sea that had been freshly-parted by the hand of God. This vile man, Chawn Kweli, attempts to hijack that amazing, historic event and join it to an abominable, murderous crusade by his army of anti-American orcs.

These black leaders are touting the highway to Hell and nothing more. They are inspired by the enemy of God and mankind. Satan is full of senseless, murderous hatred for God and all of creation, and so are these people, his minions. What is their goal? Apparently it is the murder of “white” people and the death of mainstream American capitalism. Why? I am not sure, but it seems they mistakenly believe that if a large-scale race war ensues, and many people die in the streets of America, somehow their lives will suddenly be grand. Kill enough crackers, and all will be right with the world. I suppose that makes about as much sense as any other lie from the pit of Hell.

The question is, how much of this is our country going to take before those in authority crack down on these animals? I am not talking about silencing idiot speech, such as that by Jesse Jackson or the deranged Jeremiah Wright, but criminal speech, like what has been uttered by the New Black Panthers. In our nation it is against the law to make death threats. With impunity, these New Black Panther lunatics are making death threats and calling for violence. Do not doubt that there will be those who accept their challenges, as we have already seen.

How many people will have to die before America stands up and says, “Enough!” to these people making criminal threats and criminal demands for the capture “dead or alive” of a fellow American citizen and making calls for bloody violence to be visited upon their perceived “enemies”? These people must be stopped, and I am waiting to see who has the will to stop them.

The End of Marriage - A Sign That We Are In The Last Days!


It is well know that in the Western cultures of Europe and now in America, that the God ordained institution of marriage - which was ordained before the world began (Eph 5:28-33) - has been rapidly falling by the way side. This out right rejection of the institution of marriage is found mostly in liberal/progressive circles and is a progressive liberal trait. What is most alarming is that these "western" countries - which once embraced the Judeo/Christian moral absolutes of the Bible - are now secular wastelands reaping the whirlwind of their anti moral absolute rebellion. As history has always testified, when a nation, people or culture turn their back on the Word of God, the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God, the void is always filled with a progressive secular socialism, an apostate form of Christianity, horrific war and immoral decadence (Rom. 1:18-32). These godless fruits and traits always will lead to tyranny and the oppression of the masses (Psalm 14:1-3). Just look at what the most violent century - the 20th century - has showed us!

As history has always testified, when a nation, people or culture turn their back on the Word of God, the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God, the void is always filled with a progressive secular socialism, an apostate Christianity and immoral decadence.

The Bible speaks of these Last Days and testifies to what the social conditions will be at this time among those who profess Christ and have a "form" of godliness. (Romans 10:2-4, 1 Tim. 3:1-7,2 Tim. 4:1-3, Jude, 1:10, Rev. 3:14-22). At this time, a secular progressive movement - initiated by the super fallen intelligences of fallen angels (i.e., demons ) will begin to dominate and influence the entire world preparing the world for Lucifer's lawless minion and the global worship of himself and his lawless super -ultra fascist world leader (2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev.13). One of the signs of these last days will be the demonically led anti -marriage movement along with other apostate teachings. What is astounding is that while they seek to refuse to marry they are adamant about promoting "homosexual marriage" on society. This in their eyes is virtuous as they seek to refine absolutes and morality. As we see this ever growing lawless moment sweeping the world, especially in the West. We today can see the very shadows of the things which are about to come. This lawless spirit dominates the West's progressive Left, but what is most alarming is how it is sweeping into moderate and some conservative circles as well. When these groups begin to embrace this rebellious movement against the very bedrock of the world's most sacred institution how long will it truly be until we are face to face with the Day of the Lord!

What is astounding is that while they seek to refuse to marry they are adamant about promoting "homosexual marriage" on society.

Liberalism - for the most part - rejects out right the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God. The root and source of this rejection - of these crucial moral laws and realities - is their subjective hatred towards the Creator of the heavens and earth (Romans 1:18-32). This base ideology is expressed and manifested in their disdain and hostility towards the American blue print drawn up by our Founding Fathers, which was based on the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.

Liberal /progressives reject these core moral absolutes and practice a sensual subjectivism that sees God ordained absolutes through the prism of relativism and pluralism. They possess a fear of moral absolutes and believe that true freedom is to be free from any Divine instituted moral absolutes or laws that suppress their unbridled passions (Psalm 14:1-3, Isa 24:5, 2 Tim 3:1-7, Jude 1:10). They are lawless in their practices and hostile to any that impose a Divine reality or the adherence of moral absolutes (Rom. 1:28-32).

They possess a fear of moral absolutes and believe that true freedom is to be free from any Divine instituted moral absolutes or laws that suppress their unbridled passions.

The Lord Jesus stated that, you shall know men by their fruits and by their actions (Matt. 7:16-20). It is simple enough to see that where ever the “virtues” of secular liberalism are promoted and exercised that poverty, disease, anarchy, crime, social chaos, the break down of the family unit, violence and horrific social devastation are to be found.

When one rejects and abandons the core moral building blocks for a health society for a godless delusion of lawlessness, expect to find social devastation and chaos (2 Tim. 3:1-7).

What is most alarming is how the very people that impose their delusional solutions and remedies upon the American people seek also to fix these ills of society by applying the very same logic that got us to this social catastrophic point in the first place. By applying these lawless solutions, these excel the rate of today’s social ills at exponential rates. Today’s American social culture is at the extreme breaking point. The evidence is every where, yet the majority of American’s live in the apathetic delusion that all is well and that we will remain and prosper as times past. Wake up America, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

The 60’s Tidal Wave

Since the sixties, lawlessness and gross immorality have swept America like a destroying horde of locust and has rapidly become mainstream in today’s post Judeo/Christian culture. The greatest victims of this sexual revolution have been the American children. These have been ravished by the fall out of this progressive push and hostel take over of our American Judeo/Christian culture. They have received ingrained emotional and psychological scares - that apart from Almighty God (2 Cor. 5:17-21) - can NEVER be healed. They themselves have grown up only to repeat this decadent and violent cycle to levels that far surpass the destructive appetites of their “parent” predecessors. This vicious cycle continues to repeat it’s self like a destructive tornado, which is ever building up speed and obliterating everything in its path. We today are at the breaking point in our American culture. We have passed the point of no return and we are at our nation’s social death’s door. The countless trillions spent on stopping the licentious bleeding of our ever growing decadent society has not stopped, nor can hold back, the dam which is about to burst.

They themselves have grow up only to repeat this decadent and violent cycle to levels that far surpass the destructive appetites of their “parent” predecessors.

It is by the promotion and adherence of this secular and progressive liberal ideology that we are in the mess that we are in today. This destructive ideology was contained by society in the pasted and was abhorred by our Founders but as new venues of media arose in this last century, this movement began to take hold in our American culture. Satan’s secular elites in Hollywood, Washington D.C., the music industry, the entertainment industry and the arts began to seek to change America’s social landscape and culture by the subtle and continual bombardment of these progressive immoral doctrines. These godless doctrines of demons seek to wear down the American people, its culture and social order in order to remove America's Christian (salt) influence (2 Tim. 3:1-7).

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth (2 Tim 4:1-3)"

Lucifer’s lawless minions of the last century have passionately and relentlessly sought the promotion of the godless base philosophies of Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Sigrid Freud, Aleister Crowley, Alfred Kinsey, Margaret Sanger, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the Beatles etc. These have led the Satanic agenda spearhead and have embraced and promoted the  “Do as thou wilt” godless philosophy of their master Lucifer. They have been at the forefront of America’s culture war against our Founding Fathers, against those who adhere to Judeo/Christian absolutes and mostly against the Sovereignty and Divine institutions of Almighty God (Rom 1:18-32, 2 Tim. 3:1-7). The chief of these Divine ordained institutions being marriage. Once marriage (Mark 10:5-9, Heb. 13:4) is redefined and eventually annihilated from American culture you can kiss the American Judeo/Christian world influence and restraining power good bye. Lucifer's Minions abound everywhere today. They unknowingly do his will. He knows how to maneuver and appeal to our carnal (fleshly) fallen nature which is governed by the five physical senses (sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing). The secular liberal mindset is the most open to Lucifer’s suggestions for a godless trend-setting agenda. They do his will quite readily because they are the most susceptible to it (John 8:44)

Once marriage is redefined and eventually annihilated from American culture you can kiss the American Judeo/Christian world influence and restraining power good bye.

It has been by this adherence to the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God that has made America great among all nations of the earth (Proverbs 14:34). America - for the last 200 years -has preserved this world from countless aggressors and has been a beacon of liberty and freedom to the oppressed inhabitants of this fallen world. The TRUE Gospel light has shined forth mightily from American’s churches (Rev 3:7-12) into all corners of this sin-laden world (John 3:16-17, 1 Cor.15:2-4). Almighty God has indeed blessed our nation and has preserved it against all its aggressors and Satan fully comprehends this. America must to go by the wayside in order to establish Lucifer’s global government and establish his new world order and global worship (Rev 13:4, 15-16). What other way to achieve this end then to corrupt America from within. That is Satan’s solitary strategy. When American’s gives into the seducing doctrines of demons, its unbridled passions and reject the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God – the chief of these being the Divine institute of marriage – nothing will be able to save her.

Who is Behind the Madness?

The key to comprehending the day and hour in which we live is to see things from Almighty God’s HEAVENLY and ETERNAL perspective (John 17:17, Eph. 6:12, Col. 3:1-2). The world in which we live in is governed by a highly fallen intelligent order of supernatural beings that have been expelled and sentenced to Almighty God’s ETERNAL prison called the Lake of Fire (Matt 25:41, Rev, 20:10). Planet earth has become a great battlefield between the fallen angelic host in which humanity has followed suite after Lucifer and his angelic hordes (Matt 25:41, Rev. 20:10-15) Lucifer (Satan) - the god of this fallen and cursed world (2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:1-3) - knows if he can destroy the American family unit and western influence in the world that he can put out the Gospel light that has shined forth from this nation like no other nation before it. Once these ends are achieved, nothing will stop Satan from his vain grand design, the global reign and worship of himself under his Anti Christ (2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 13).

The key to comprehending the day and hour in which we live is to see things from Almighty God’s HEAVENLY and ETERNAL perspective.

As these days and hours rapidly come to a grand conclusion and we see the exponential evaporation of moral absolutes right before our very eyes – the chief of these being rejection of the Divine institute of marriage - remember what God has stated must be! All things are headed to the world’s final war against its Creator at Armageddon! (Palm 2, Rev. 16:13-16)

The chief question one must ask themselves in this every changing social climate is, “Do I have a personal saving relationship to my CREATOR as the Bible – God’s infallible Word - clearly teaches (John 4:24, Act 4:12)?

As America and the world heads into the Day of the Lord, may you be sure that you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior! He indeed is our only hope!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
