Take God's word tonight please and open to Hebrews chapter eleven and we're going to look primarily at verse seven Hebrews chapter eleven and verse seven. The title of our message tonight is THE TITANIC AND NOAH'S ARK. We read here in Hebrews chapter eleven and verse seven, "by faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith." I think all of us have been amazed and interested if we're interested at all in that type of thing in the discovery of the grave of the mighty ocean liner, the Titanic. Some two and a half miles beneath the ocean's surface, thirteen thousand feet down, they have with a very brilliantly contrived device photographed that ship, the mighty titanic. It lies in an area on the ocean floor that resembles the Swiss Alps. It is lying on mountains that deep in the bosom of the ocean. As I told you this morning they said that the sink, that, the sink was unsinkable and that's about the only thing that it ever did. It was a monstrous floating palace. It set sail on April the tenth, nineteen twelve. Anybody here was alive at that time, let see your hand? Few folks here were alive, ha, in nineteen twelve, I'm sure you don't remember much about it, but this ship was unequaled in lavished splendor. Everything you can imagine that would bring pleasure to the human heart, mind and soul was on this ship. They had ballrooms, not one, but many. They had barber shops, they had beauty salons, they even had tennis courts on board, they had sauna baths on board and the sinking of the Titanic is a great, great object lesson for this day and this age. Now, they were very, very confident in the ability of that ship to stay afloat. As a matter of fact, the keynote, the thing that they kept saying about this ship back in nineteen twelve was that it was unsinkable. Everybody knew that it was unsinkable. As a matter of fact, a sailor confidently said that it would not sink and one sailor said flippantly, even God himself could not sink this ship. And the chairman of the White Star company, Bruce Ismay said this and I'm quoting, I cannot imagine any condition that would cause the ship to flounder. I can not imagine any disaster happening to this vessel. Modern shipbuilding has come beyond that. And so, they had every assurance of safety, every available luxury and they sat sail on April the tenth and they were ready for a time of carefree self indulgence. One of the survivors who was named Harris, a Mrs. Harris said and I want to quote her. We were out on a lark and revelry was the keynote. The weather, it was superb. The comfort and the luxury aboard were all that had been promised, and she said the days passed too quickly. I felt as if I could go on til the end of time. And there were some people on board whose job it was to keep watch. And like t ...
