The World – Now is the accepted time, July 24, 2021

“It is told that the steamship Central America, on a voyage from New York to San Francisco, sprang a leak in mid-ocean. A vessel seeing her signal of distress bore down toward her and the captain of the rescue ship cried, ‘Let me take your passengers on board now.’ But it was night and the commander of the Central America feared to send his passengers away in the darkness. Thinking they could keep afloat a while longer he replied, ‘Lie by until morning.’ About an hour and a half later her lights were missed.

The vessel had sunk, and all on board had perished because it was thought that they could be saved at another time. ‘Now is the accepted time.”

(Excerpts from “Answered prayers and soul-winning incidents – published in 1940)
