"HOLD ON! WAIT!"

A young convert told of his experience in the First World War. He was in the "Lost Battalion." We were cut off from our main army and all around us were Germans. Our food and water gave out and every once in a while a +German would come to say "Surrender." Only one shell was left, and we decided to use it as a signal. At night we turned the cannon straight up, put in the shell, and prayed and pulled the trigger. How we hoped the Americans would see it. Next morning an airplane dropped u s canteens of water and bread and a note saying, "Hold on! we are coming!" This continued for several days. Then we heard cannons roaring. Soon our army came and took us to our own lines.

We Christians are being asked to surrender to the world in these last days, but God sends us His message, "Hold on I am coming!
