I Prayed have prayed
Lord Jesus, history has a habit of repeating itself. Please help us understand the times we're living in so that we can heed the warnings and discern the truth.
Reading Time: 7 minutes

“It hardly bears thinking about that if there had been sufficient boats that night … every soul aboard could have been saved, since it was two-and-a-half hours after she struck that (iceberg) she tilted her massive stern into the heavens and sank by the head, taking with her all that were unprovided for.” Certainly, these are chilling words, spoken by Sir Arthur Rostron, captain of the RMS Carpathia. Rostron and his crew quickly responded to the RMS Titanic’s distress calls in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912. When he arrived on the disastrous scene, the heroic captain was shocked to discover few more than 700 survivors from the “unsinkable” ship that had held more than 2,000 passengers and crew members.

Arthur Rostron’s words still ring true today as we exist in a world where warnings are willfully ignored, often by those in high positions of authority. Voices of watchmen cry, “Iceberg dead ahead,” as new COVID mRNA boosters roll out. Their arrival comes at a time when trumpets are sounding their awakening blasts during the High Holy Days, reminding all believers to heed and spread the alarm. Unfortunately, the response to the overwhelming evidence documenting vaccine injuries — such as myocarditis, heart attacks, strokes, neurological disorders, turbo cancers, immune system damage, and irreparable harm to pregnant women and their babies — bears a striking resemblance to that of the Titanic’s captain, Edward Smith, who moved full speed ahead, even after multiple iceberg warnings were received by its operators.

Mandy Cohen, the new director of the Centers for Disease Control, is not slowing the ship down. She recently stated: “I wouldn’t recommend anything I wouldn’t recommend for my own family. I’m not just the head of the CDC. I’m a mom. I’m a wife. I’m a daughter. So, you’re going to see my 9-and 11-year-old daughters get vaccinated with COVID and flu this fall, my husband, my parents. So, we’re hoping that everyone will protect themselves when we get into the fall and winter, get their updated COVID shot, as well as a flu shot.”

Cardiologist Peter McCullough is flabbergasted at the “complete regulatory malfeasance” committed by those pushing these COVID shots. Tested on 20 mice, with no control group and no human testing, these injections are downright dangerous, he saus.

The only thing that will stop ongoing scientific misconduct and regulatory malfeasance is public outrage and booster refusal,” McCullough said, “The vaccine companies are hauling in record profits, have not analyzed safety nor have they shown any interest in safer more effective products for testing in large-scale randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trails. The Bio- Pharmaceutical Complex is completely off the rails! Coming next will be vaccines developed from computer generated mRNA genetic code with mathematical modeling of antibody response and no mice or human subjects at all.”

It seems the disturbing pattern of behavior exhibited back in 1912 when the Titanic sank came bubbling to the surface again in June 2023, as if to remind the world of forgotten lessons. An experimental submersible carrying five people called the Titan experienced a catastrophic implosion while on its way to explore the wreckage of the Titanic. Like the original ship, the Titan’s owners and operators (OceanGate Expeditions) were warned about the safety of the vessel. James Cameron, director of the 1997 movie Titanic, stated that “many people in the community were very concerned” about the Titan sub. He revealed there were many experts in the engineering community who had written letters to OceanGate, warning that “what they were doing was too experimental to carry passengers.” Cameron told Reuters that OceanGate “shouldn’t have been doing what it was doing,” adding that he declined an invitation from the CEO to go diving with them.

Other warnings were given as well. Former OceanGate employee David Lochridge lamented that he raised at least nine concerns about the Titan’s safety, but instead of being taken seriously, he was promptly fired. Lochridge citedunproven technology,” snagging hazards, flammability issues, toxic materials, and in particular the possibility that the carbon-fiber hull showed “very visible signs of delamination and porosity.”

Brian Weed, a camera operator for Discovery Channel’s popular show Expedition Unknown, went on a Titan test dive in May 2021 and described problems with the propulsion and communications system, as well as the onboard computers. “I felt like every time (the vessel) goes down, it’s going to get weaker and weaker. And that’s a little bit like playing Russian roulette.” Even though Weed’s line of work puts him in the middle of many risky situations, such as swimming with sharks, he backed out of a dive to the Titanic wreck.

The conditions inside the Titan sub weren’t luxurious like the Titanic, as the space inside amounted to a small 22-foot tube, with just a single window and no seats. With limited oxygen, one tiny toilet on board, and freezing, claustrophobic conditions, this journey wasn’t one for the faint at heart. The passengers inside the sub included OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush (61), explorer and billionaire Hamish Harding (58), Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood (48) and his son, Suleman Dawood (19) and French diver Paul-Henri Nargeolet (77). This expedition was fraught with risk, but passengers were willing to put their lives on the line for a chance at seeing the Titanic up close.

The pilot of the Titan, Stockton Rush, has been described as a “meticulous planner” and an “over-confident pioneer.” His wife, Wendy Rush, shares in his enthusiasm for all things Titanic, as it literally runs in her blood. She is the great-great granddaughter of Titanic passengers Isidor and Ida Straus, both of whom perished when the ship sank. Isidor co-owned the Macy’s department stores with his brother Nathan and also served in Congress. He and his wife shared a great love for one another, and they refused to be separated, even when the Titanic sank. Ida was given a chance to board a lifeboat without her husband, but instead she said to him: “We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go.” A deleted scene in the Titanic movie shows the couple making the decision to stay together. According to Titanic survivors, they were last seen sitting together arm in arm on a pair of deck chairs.

Like the Titanic disaster, the Titan submarine catastrophe could have been prevented. Additionally, certain details stand out as warnings for the here and now. When Titanic director James Cameron comments that what OceanGate was doing was “too experimental” and therefore it was unsafe, it doesn’t take long for one’s mind to turn to the experimental mRNA COVID vaccines that were unleashed on the world in 2020. Despite VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) data, letters, lawsuits, hearings, and public outcry over the dangers of the products, the companies that manufacture these pharmaceuticals, as well as health authorities, continue pushing ahead at breakneck speed. Not only are new variations of mRNA injections being used on people, but they are also being given to animals, and even to sea life.

As for the COVID mRNA shots and boosters, if they are not stopped, it can lead to disaster. Unfortunately, doctors who have issued stern safety warnings have been fired, as Lochridge was, or they’ve had their licenses revoked. The hull of Big Pharma is full of holes and is sinking quickly. The problem is that there are still many who refuse to see the danger, often relying on the voices of human authorities, rather than heavenly ones.

Recently, country music singer John Rich told High Wire: “I won’t be a fish on a hook for Big Pharma.” He emphasizes that after World War II, the horrors of Nazi experimentation came to light, and thus a landmark document called the Nuremberg Code was created to protect all human beings from unethical, inhumane, coercive experiments.

Part 1 of the code states: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion.”

Rich declares that when it comes to experimental products like the COVID vaccines, we cannot be forced to receive any kind of medical treatment, but it’s critical that we stand our ground on this. He testifies about how he managed to stay true to his convictions, despite the overwhelming pressures to comply with the government mandates that threatened to squelch his God-given freedoms.

“One thing that I consistently pray for and ask God to give me is not success and not popularity — I don’t ask for those things. It’s discernment that’s the thing that I ask for. In a world that is absolutely swallowed up with lies … and then you’ve got these huge decisions to make and you don’t know what the truth is. You know, I pray for discernment, that hey God, put something in me, make me feel a certain way that’s correct, that’s true, and I will follow whatever that is. I felt that way about the vaccine. I felt that something wasn’t right … if you’re a Christian and you believe in God, you know He’s there and you are His … you need to ask Him for discernment because this isn’t the last batch of lies that we’re going to have to live through. This is going to continue on, and it’s probably going to get more and more complicated.”

Rich is referring to the Holy Spirit, who resides in all those who place their trust and faith in Jesus Christ. In confusing and difficult times, His is the one voice we must hear. Both the Titanic and the Titan are real-world examples of what happens when discernment is lacking and warnings are ignored. One vessel sank, and the other imploded, but both could have been spared if pridefulness hadn’t interfered with sound, thoughtful judgment.

The best way to avoid such disasters is to remember the words Ida Straus told her husband: “Where you go, I go.” We, as the Bride of Christ, are swimming in treacherous waters, but we must “go where Jesus goes” and stay where He stays. Thus, we must let his voice guide our lives and decisions so we can abide in the truth. This may not be the easiest path, but it will be the right one.

While on its way to rescue the survivors of the Titanic, the RMS Carpathia passed at least six icebergs. Capt. Rostron whispered a quiet prayer during the risky, high-speed journey. Looking back on how he was able to make it through, he said: “When day broke, I saw the ice I had steamed through during the night. I shuddered, and could only think that some other hand than mine was on that helm during the night.”

Let’s pray together:

Lord Jesus, history offers us many lessons about life. As Your followers, we have the assurance that we have a warning system in place that will never fail. Help us to tune in to the Holy Spirit so that we can navigate through all the icebergs in life’s waters. We also ask that You tear down the lies of the pharmaceutical-biomedical complex — which continues to deceive and harm so many people. 

How are the Holy Spirit and history speaking to you? Please share your thoughts and prayers.

Excellent article. Thank you.

September 22, 2023

I was told there was a sister ship to the Titanic that actually sunk. And was a result of billionaires taking out other billionaires. I was as floored as anyone who found out it was more lies. Like the “moon landing”, Hiroshima, 911, and lately even Pearl Harbor. The Titan was even a designed catastrophe. These billionaires are ruthless with no regard for humanity. As we’ve just witnessed on my precious Maui. But thank you for not calling the satanic shot something it’s not qualified to be. Discernment being the key word in these times. Truth is I’d be surprised if you printed this. Hallelujah 🌈💜🙏🇺🇸🇺🇸

This is not a Christian verses world issue unfortunately. In 2020 when COVID broke loose, I was frustrated that the church I went to shut down. Then when churches began to get permission to re open with the governments “approval” they sectioned the pews off so you were not allowed to sit next to one another. People wore masks and sang on stage with clear coverings over their faces. And then the infighting began…who wore a mask and who didn’t. Politics became so deeply ingrained into the congregation that you could tell who voted for what candidate simply by the how they responded to COVID governmental mandates and recommendations. That same church split shortly thereafter and it was a spiritual blood bath. I personally never recovered in the fact I still do not have a church to attend because I refuse to be under the authority of spineless leadership ever again. So I watch online…something I refused to do during COVID! Don’t look to the progressives to change on this mantra of believing the Big Pharma narrative…look at the church. This is who God will judge first—His Bride. Many within the church still follow the line and letter on all the lies and deceit. “We” ( the church) no longer are united on these serious topics and we all know what happens to any entity that is no longer united. My heart is broken because I am watching people I love who read the same Bible I do stand in line for the next booster. Im not speaking of weak Christians…Im speaking of some great men and women of the faith, so I’ve become silent on these topic’s because I won’t argue about it. People will do what they feel they need to do, but, we, the church, are not a United front. Is this why God is not healing our land? I believe it might be, but who am I to know the mind of our great Creator.

    September 22, 2023

    Amen. Had my heart broken after l learned my 2 sisters and some longtime friends did it. After I had sent them plenty of information from very credible doctors. Now one has just started dialysis. I believe God is upset with His bride for turning their back on Him…

1. I had the JJ vaccine once because no MRNA shots for me and no more because it is not safe and definitely not effective.
2. As far as the Titanic, the telegraph radio operator on the Titanic relayed a warning from the Amerika to the Hydrographic Office in Washington about ice and gave the coordinates. It was received in Washington the next day. Another ship warned the Titanic about 1 hour before it crashed about ice in the area but the operator said shut up. As I understand it, neither message made it to the bridge.

Dear Father God I pray that you will open the eyes of the blind that they will not follow others to do what it’s wrong. Reveal to us your truth and expose the lies about this covid vaccination. May people be informed before they make that decision For themselves and for their families. In Jesus name amen

September 21, 2023

When an administration and its appointees continue to make false claims, cause massive waves of fear, and say….”trust us”, any American has the right to counter those false agendas with non-conformity. Choose you this day whom you will serve; as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. May the sovereign God of the universe, expose and deal quickly with those offering us, once again, unreliable, dangerous substitutes for health protection only to satisfy the coalition of pharma/governance.
Protect our freedoms and our lives, Lord Jesus.

September 21, 2023

I pray that as believers in the One TRue God we stop and pray for dicernment and listen to the Holy Spirit. That we are strong and bold to share God’s truth and stand firm on our convictions. God is sovereign, and He knows, He sees and one day TRUE justice will be done.
Until then, lets pray, pray and pray and go out and speak His truth to others.
In Jesus name we pray.

I really enjoy reading these articles, I am kind of confused on this one, I am not taking a shot, havent yet, but our adult kids have. We keep looking for great sources to send them of the dangers, and whille this started great, the feedback was why. did they spend so much time talking about the titanic and not the warnings, etc of the shot… just some feedback from young adults.

    September 21, 2023

    Did they follow the links? She has links to much evidence regarding the dangers and the harm already done imbedded in the article.

Excellent article!!! Give us discernment, Lord, to navigate the treacherous waters our nation is immersed in! Help us hear what You are saying and say it, see what You are doing and DO it!
“Oh give us help against the adversary, For deliverance by man is in vain. Through God we will do valiantly, And it is He who shall tread down our adversaries.”

Angela, thank you ever so much for this beautiful article. I was so moved by it that I shared it with many friends. I pray for you as you write to open the hearts and minds of many Christians, who live in fear. I pray I am never one of them and your words were a good reminder that God is our protector, and we need only to listen to Him. God bless you.

This was an excellent article! Thanks so much for placing ithere at IFA. The history of each example given, should be enogh to teach the valuable lesson of ” Heed the Warning”! We can look all the way back to the garden, One Rule by One God, for the first man and woman, and a warning! Next, Noah, and his sons, trying to warn the
population of the time, Repent, turn from evil, come to The Ark;,yet, they laughed and scoffed and closed their ears, and hearts, then perished.
My daughter at 7 yrs old, after hearing this story, that also says, even all the children were evil; was so disturbed by that, she wanted to talk about this for days after we read it. She then confessed about a lie she had told, about something she had done, Next, she asked if she could be saved and baptized like the ones she saw at church. Of course, of course! How do you tell a child ” no, you are too young.” The point is, a 7 yr old understood the message our Lord was sending here. Let us learn, discern, guide guard even the youngest who need and want to know the best choices in all things!
About the vaxx’s many children were forced, not even given a choice because their parents chose to stay uninformed, and not question! Many elderly, the same thing, no loved ones tried to convince them.otherwise, or they had no one to help them see the truth, or encourage them to wait. And, even we who have tried to warn those in our circles of family and friends, they refused to listen, so so sad. History does teach us many lessons, and God indeed blesses us with and knowledge. We must not give up, we must keep blowing the whistle, horn, shout or whisper whatever it takes; to help who we can, try to understand the dangers ahead. And, most importantly, The Salvation message from His Word.
God bless each one in your endeavors on your journeys✝️🛐🛐🛐

    Suffer little children to come onto me and forbid them not. 55 years ago.My six year old daughter asked me how she could be saved. I actually tried to talk her out of it until she was older, but she was not having it. So I led her to the Lord, and now she’s a 60 year old, godly woman having walked with the Lord all these years.
