Can there be any more normal words than the ones above? The last recorded words spoken by the pilot of MH370, the missing Malaysian jet. Without a doubt, these four words have added as much to the mystery of the disappearance of the ill-fated jet liner as anything else. With hearts broken for the families of the missing passengers and crew, we have all watched the news reports as the experts have speculated from every angle as to what may or may not have happened aboard that aircraft.
Just today, the families of the missing passengers were notified first by text message and then by official announcement that the airliner is most likely lost in the far reaches of the southern Indian ocean. An area so remote that it is astonishing to think that the airliner could have flown so far off course. Add to that the difficulty of searching some of the most rough, turbulent and deep waters of the world have only added to the frustration.
It is looking likely that the plane did indeed crash in to the sea, perhaps flying until it could fly no more.; running out of fuel until it plummeted in to the watery depths of the remote waters below. I had thought perhaps (as many others did) that the plane may have been routed to Pakistan or some other hostile country where it was being weaponized for future use. That scenario is looking doubtful now but, given the times we live in anything is possible and I think we can expect to be surprised. In other words, expect the unexpected.
A TIME WHEN NO MAN CAN WORK
Jesus had said there was a time coming when no one could work. What did he mean by that? In John 9:4 it says:
“As long as it is day we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming when no one can work.”
There is a time coming when spiritually speaking no one can work. A time of darkness and no light. A time when day has passed away in to night just as the missing plane with it passengers and crew disappeared in to the early morning hours of the night following these oh, so normal words - “All right, good night”.
If you have never trusted Jesus as your Savior, I urge you to do so now. The times in which we live are unprecedented. Bible prophecy is being fulfilled at an alarming rate indicating that there is not much time left – everything is about to change in a dramatic way. The rapture of the church is on the near horizon and the world is close to being thrust in to darkness. Are you ready?

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus! Cindy
