A Vanished Plane and The Rapture

Two weeks ago, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 left Kuala Lumpur for Beijing. Without a word of distress, it vanished—its unexplained disappearance captivating the world, and triggering a massive search across the Indian Ocean.

If the world is so confounded by one missing aircraft, imagine its reaction to the Rapture, when a thousand planes disappear into the seas and remote places, due to vanishing pilots (and passengers). Will astonished air traffic controllers and frustrated inspectors think the explanation will be found in 'black boxes?' How long will it take before they begin searching for answers in the 'black book,' and find Paul's words:

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the trump of God, and we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with Him in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord.(1 Thess. 4:16-18 edited). Perhaps they will read this post after we're gone!
