|Malaysia Airlines MH370
Dailymail.co.uk says, "WHY ARE THE PASSENGERS' PHONES STILL RINGING? – Regarding Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 Missing 4 Days Now.
See their summary paragraph
under the above title. NO PHONE HAS PICKED-UP!
As if there was not enough
mystery surrounding this vanished Boeing 777 airliner, ringing cell phones of passengers on board, is quite intriguing.
This Dailymail.co.uk article addresses many questions in this regard.
It seems as though
ringing cell phones should mean a connection with that phone is, in fact, established. NO PHONE HAS BEEN ANSWERED, HOWEVER.
It seems to mean, that they are NOT under water.
It also seems to mean they are in range
of a cell phone tower.
"The Nokia 100 boasts a standby battery life of 35 days."
Even older phone batteries may last a number of days, if not being used much.
can spy on us through our own cell phones, even when they are switched off (I understand they can do this), one wonders if
they don't know where the plane is?
One would think some phones would survive a crash.
But, some 19 families signed a joint statement that their calls connected, but "rang out." That is
I would certainly think there would have been some believers in Jesus Christ on board MH370.
We never know when our time is up.
I understand that two of the three Americans aboard
included a baby and a small child.
I still remember that childhood bedtime prayer.
Wikipedia article, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, says:
"A later version printed in The New England Primer goes:
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul
If I shall die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take. Amen."
It is critical and every parent's paramount duty to immerse his/her small children in
the sure confident reality of Almighty God, and including the reality of the possibility of one's death, and
the need to earnestly petition God for salvation of one's soul.
Older bibles like the King James and Geneva Bibles will correctly refer to the supernatural or soul, whereas, wrongfully,
modern bibles are substituting naturalistic renderings in their places.
When a person dies, the King James will say, "he gave up the ghost," whereas modern bibles will obscure
the supernatural (the truth) by saying, "he breathed his last."
the Old Testament when the older bibles say, "oh, my soul," modern bibles will simply say, "I."
So It is so good to remember that the old child's bedtime prayer uses the
correct supernatural term, "soul."
New Testament passage 1Corinthians 15 speaks of the
"sting of death," and the blessedness of the believer's victory
over the grave having placed earnest faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for
the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must
put on immortality.
54 So when
this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is
57 But thanks
be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in
the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Verse 52, above speaks of the Rapture, the snatching away of believers from the Earth's surface to
go with the Lord Jesus Christ to heaven for the marriage supper, and consummation.Note:
"Sleep" is a term for a believer who has died.
Thessalonians 4 is another passage on the Rapture:
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others
which have no hope.
14 For if we believe
that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive
and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and
with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet
the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
