Since the disappearance of Malaysian Flight 370, some questions have surrounded the two Iranian men who were known to be aboard the fateful flight who had actually used stolen passports. But not much has been said about them for the past few days.
It is now reported and widely believed that this flight was deliberately commandeered. It is believed to have been taken off course and possibly flown for up to five hours well into the direction of the Indian Ocean. Now, the American destroyer, USS Kidd, is rushing into that region to search for the missing airliner.
I would hope that officials are still tracking down possible leads on the two Iranian young men who were on board this flight. They have so far determined that there is no “terror links” connected with them. But, in terms of probabilities, Iran may be behind these strange events!
There are many islands in the Indian Ocean. Therefore it is not too much of a stretch, and one does not need to be a “certifiable conspiratorial nut” to theorize on the possibility that this plane has landed undetected in some remote location, possibly an island, in the Indian Ocean.
My prayers are with the many people of that part of the world who have been relatively unknown to the world since the horrible tsunamis devastated many islands of the region over ten years ago. They are very focused on what is potentially and actually happening in their region today. Many Christians there are praying that the passengers aboard Malaysian Flight 370 will soon be found safe.
Reports are that two-thirds of the passengers are Chinese citizens. It would be awful to think that Iran would have the audacity to seek to do them harm, but, with all of Iran’s blatant and Satanically influenced threats to destroy Israel, speculation that they are planning something big against them or their allies by use of this jet are not beyond reason.
Remember that Satan is a deceiver and thrives on the uncertainty and fear of the masses. Now is a good time for born-again Christians who have trusted in Jesus Christ Who died for their sins, Who rose again, and Who is coming again at any moment, to pray fervently for this flight, its passengers and all the peoples of the nations that are involved. Pray that what Satan has intended for evil, God will use for good, “to save much people alive.” (Genesis 50:20)
In this strange situation, God has chosen, for a time, to keep the intentions of man hidden from the world, I believe He wants us to focus on Him. But one day He will make all things clear: “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29)
Meanwhile, we should faithfully trust that God, Who sent the Son of God, Jesus Christ to die on the cross and to rise again, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Who loves us, also loves those people on board Malaysian Flight 390. He knows all of their names. We can pray for them that God will protect them. Also we can pray for Him to reveal His love and prophetic plan to the world, even through these strange events, so we can still have hope in Jesus Christ in these uncertain and suspenseful times. Jesus promised: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Luke 21:28)
