John Harper

John Harper was a Scottish preacher aboard the Titanic. When the ship hit an iceberg and sank, Harper was clinging to a piece of drift wood. As he was out in the darkness a man drifted close to him crying, and Harper shouted to him, "Are you saved?" the man replied, "No." Harper said, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." The man drifted away, but shortly came back into sight. Again Harper asked, "Are you saved?" the man again said, "No," again Harper shouted to the man, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved." Soon after that, Harper slipped under the waves and went home to be with Jesus. The other man was rescued a short time later by the S.S. Carpathia, and later testified that he was John Harper's last covert. With his dying breath John Harper gave a good word spoken in due season!
