The Titanic’s captain did not believe the ship was sinking until water was ankle deep in the mail room. At that point he realized that the unsinkable ship was sinking.
Ships that could have helped rescue the people on board were not asked to help early enough & did not arrive in time.
Many believe they will get saved at the eleventh hour. What they do not realize is it may come so fast they do not know it is the eleventh hour.

2 Cor 6:2 (GNT): Hear what God says: “When the time came for me to show you favor, I heard you; when the day arrived for me to save you, I helped you.” Listen! This is the hour to receive God's favor; today is the day to be saved!
