     A few nights ago several families gathered at a friends house 
to fellowship. As we sat around the table the conversation turned to 
a movie recently released about the" Titanic". As those who had seen 
it began to describe it, how it was such a grand ship and how the 
band played as the people partied aboard the ship in grand style! 
Then they said suddenly the ship broke in half and all the people 
began to pour out into the sea, and they commented on how realistic 
it all seemed!

     As they spoke the Holy Ghost fell on me with weeping and tears, 
and he spoke "This is America" That great ship who in her pride 
thought she could never sink! As I sat at the table before all, 
tears rolled down my cheeks as I knew that soon our judgement would 
come, and it would be suddenly and without warning! 

     One more thing, as I listened to a radio broadcast  the Russians 
were warning America, who had recently found out that Russia had been 
suppling Iraq with materials to build biological wepons.The American 
who I believe was William Cohen was told in no uncertain terms that 
should America attack Iraq it could very possibly start a world war!
     As he spoke I felt the Spirit of the Lord come upon me and I 
began to pray, but it was along the lines of Just and true are thy 
ways thou King of saints! Lord let thy judgements come that the 
harvest may be reaped, for your judgements are true and righteous 
altogether! It was stange that I prayed this way, for it was a Spirit 
of intercession that came upon me, and the Spirit was praying and not 
me with my own thoughts!

               "The Titanic: A Message from God"

A friend shared an awesome thought today: God is sending the world a
last warning message through the Hollywood smash-hit movie, "Titanic."

"Titanic" is a long-running, top box office hit, one of the greatest
of all time. People are going to see it in droves. It is setting
records in popularity. The movie's timing seems astonishing. It is not

Titanic's message: The great ship represents the very best the world
has to offer -- opulance, extravagance, parties, food, strong drink,
song, and perceived total safety and security. It was unsinkable, and
impregnable. The ultimate in human endeavor. The zenith of man's
genius. The people were on a giant materialistic and indulgent binge,
with no thought of the imminent danger, destruction and death just
ahead. Just fun, fun, fun. Eat, drink and be merry.

KABLOOM! The end came suddenly. Few escaped. Most went to their
deaths. The unsinkable sunk. The unthinkable happened.

I believe God's message in this current movie is that the Titanic
represents America and the world. The stock market is at an all-time
high. Unemployment is low. "The times are good," our President assures
us. The Asian financial crisis is passed off as only a blip. The
public thinks a few air strikes (that they can safely watch on CNN
while eating potato chips) will subdue Saddam Hussein, the modern king
of Babylon. The people are so happy that they even believe character
in top leadership doesn't matter. There is little thought of eternal
values and the judgment to come. In fact, those are just old fashioned
ideas anyhow. Things are good!

But the iceberg looms just ahead. The destruction is coming. It may
only be days or weeks.

A radio movie critic said that "Titanic" is a sermon from start to
finish. God means it that way. It is a message to the world. A
prophetic word does not have to come from a pulpit. In fact, you won't
find them in most pulpits. But God speaks any way He wants, and if His
servants will not speak His warnings, He will find a way. This time,
it is a secular movie.

My friend said the Lord led him to Isaiah 30: "Therefore, this is what
the Holy One of Israel says: 'Because you have rejected this message
.... and depended on deceit, this sin will become for you like a high
wall, cracked and bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant. It
will break in pieces like pottery, shattered so mercilessly that among
its pieces not a fragment will be found for taking coals from a hearth
or scooping water out of a cistern'" (12-14, NIV)
