Israel Prepares To Withstand Possible Attack By Hijacked Malaysia Flight 370

Israel's Channel 2 has revealed that Israeli air defenses have been boosted, and approaching civilian aircraft will be asked to identify themselves far earlier....

As the possibility–however remote–grows that Malaysia Airlines flight 370 may have been hijacked and taken to a hidden location, Israeli authorities are preparing for the possibility that the hijackers might attempt to use the Boeing 777 to mount an attack.

According to the Times of Israel, Israel’s Channel 2 has revealed that Israeli air defenses have been boosted, and approaching civilian aircraft will be asked to identify themselves far earlier.


Though the flight was presumed at first to have crashed, whole or in pieces, into the ocean, passive satellite transmissions from the aircraft suggest that it made a deliberate course change and may have headed north into central Asia.

Pakistan has already said that the flight never registered on its radar, but at least one expert has suggested the flight could have landed in Bangladesh, whose air defenses presumably would be weaker.

Though the possibility that the Boeing 777 could be used in a terror attack is mere speculation, it is evidently being taken seriously by Israel. A plane filled with nuclear material would not need to be in Israeli airspace long to do catastrophic damage, even if shot down. source – Breitbart

  • Flight 370 in Oman, Ras Al Hadd, The 8 hour Theory

    OK, if Malaysia Flight 370 was in the air for 8 hours it could have flown as far as United Arab Emirates. so I drew an 8 hour circle around Kuala Lampur, Malaysia point of departure and show the 777 landing 8 hours later in Oman. To avoid land radar this means the plane would have had to stay out over the water the full 8 hours, and only land on the coast at a very low altitude. As I zoomed in on Satellite images along the coast of Oman I found the following. An abandoned runway at the tiny village of Ras Al Hadd, Oman. If the plane landed at 8:00 am it could have refueled there and …… flown just about anywhere…. What do you think …

  • Prophecy Watch

    I have been saying this for sometime too…please check out the link below to see a flow-chart of how this might look.

  • Anything is possible. I’m wandering if it just didn’t crash and sink. With all those passengers on board with cell phones and not one message from anyone of them?

  • @ Israel. How paranoid can you get?

  • ???

  • The phones are ringing through, so they are not destroyed as in a crash. The highjackers maybe over looked cell phones or they don’t care. If they think that we suspect terror somewhere then all the better, more terror. What if they want to to explode something over New York City? Would we stop it or would it fit another false flag as 9/11?

  • Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a fervent supporter of his country’s opposition leader who was jailed for homosexuality – illegal in Malaysia – only hours before flight MH370 vanished with 239 passengers and crew on board, the Sunday Mirror can reveal.
    And in a new twist, it emerged that the pilot’s wife and three children moved out of the family’s home the day before the plane’s disappearance.

  • how come they cant use the gps to find the phones? I don’t think I would fly on a plane with muslim pilots. not after this.

  • Here is another story, A lot of theories going around.

    Missing Flight MH 370 Hijacked for Nuclear Terror Strike on America?

  • I would like to know what information Israel has. Israel does not just come out and say something without backed by evidence.

    @Wulfrano: You really have not been paying attention over the past decade, have you?

  • A Possible scenario:
    What if … as the captain of flight 370 says “Good night” to the Malaysian air traffic controller at the passover to the Vietnamese air traffic control, the first transponder is taken care of. And soon after the captain finishes with the Malaysian air traffic control a hijacking occurs during which time the switch for the cockpit transponder is turned to standby either to warn air traffic that there is a hijacking in progress or in an effort to hide the flight. There is a struggle for control of the plane and the plane climbs perilously high; so high, in fact, that it surpasses the highest level of the altimeter and the computer can’t make sense of the information and resets it to zero making it appear that it has just crashed into the ocean. At 45,000 feet the plane is in the hands of the hijackers and no longer designated at flight 370; and they descend to cruising altitude to continue on course to Beijing hoping that no one has noticed anything. The flight is relatively smooth all the way over Vietnam. As it crosses over the coast of Vietnam into Chinese air space a military radar picks up a plane that has no transponder signal and sends out an interceptor plane which shadows it for a while, at first far behind and then MUCH closer, to a position just south of Hainan Island. The Malaysian plane does not respond to any hails, nor does heed warnings to identify itself. Instead is attempts to speed away from the interceptor which chases it down and comes up beside it to the east north east of Hainan Island along the continental shelf. Given those circumstances, the erratic flight, the lack of transponder, the failure to communicate, … it would be reasonable for the military to assume that the plane had been hijacked. Add to that the eye witness testimony of watching a flaming plane go down, and the Chinese “mistakenly” producing satelite pictures of debris in the South China sea. It is reasonable to assume that the military would have had no choice but to shoot down the plane irrespective of its status as a passenger plane. They wait for the uproar .. but there is a reprieve! The Malaysian authorities think it went down near Malaysia where the altimeter read “0”!! And they see no reason to refute any conclusion that diverts attention away from what really happened. No international outcry, no political unrest. The plane flies into the sunset and the victims become national heroes.

  • Common sense tells me that before Israel can be attacked as to wipe Israel off the map…. And Iran has stated a desire to do this in the pass… They must first convince America to back off from protecting Israel.. Look for the second major attack for America to happen first… God will never allow a destruction of a people or nation before He first sends His warnings of the destruction…. (Amos 3:7)
    To read God’s warnings for America, Google: “The Message For America, Hand of Help Ministries.” Google, “The Eagle and the Serpents, Hand of Help Ministries.” To read how I was led to this: Google, ” watchman48 blogspot, America ~ Mystery Babylon? ” To read the message of the 2nd major terrorist attack; And for where I believe the location of the 2nd attack will be; Google, “watchman48 blogspot, The Eagle and the Serpents (Part 2).”
    America’s days are about to end for most of us… Neither Obama nor all of our Armed Forces can save America…

  • I agree 100%, the plane is in the hands of terrorist for sure as that region has no true authorized defense system of sane governing body concerned with the Islamic agenda.

    So, yes, the opponents pupils may use this as a tip off to a unilateral initiation of war against Israel.
    Such an incident would make us vulnerable, catch off guard, setback defensive strategies in normal circumstances.

    Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood are not slumbering in their quest of a world Islamic Order

  • Mr. Johnson: Now since the terrorist have this 777 plane, and likely with a nuclear bomb in it. What country will get hit with it? USA or Israel?

  • NTEB: I bet I know exactly where this 777 plane is? Southern Iran, being fitted with a nuclear bomb, to strike Israel. This would cause Israel immediately to strike Iran?

  • Well let’s see now, if I was surrounded by neighbors that wanted me dead, yes I would be very paranoid, too. How paranoid would you be, Mr. Sainz?

  • STL, I’d like to ask you something. If Persia is the place of the beast kingdom, and she is called Babylon that rides on the back of that kingdom, then how can there be war with Israel, if he comes in peaceably to obtain the kingdom and wins them over by flatteries? How will they except him as messiah, if he’s out to destroy them in war? War with Iran would only postpone the end, not accelerate it. The war will come after the tribulation with Christ at the forefront. It is the battle of God Almighty, Rev.16:14, Rev 19:15,17.

    Dan 11:2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.
    The realm of Grecia consist of , Greece, Turkey, Syria, and Egypt.

    It is a possibility, he could come out of Syria or Turkey and conquer Persia, to be called king of Persia. But it is assured, he will rule Persia and all the Middle East with it. It is a lot to think about!

  • Ron,
    I have always respected your humble opinion and thoughts on end times. Given the current situation going on worldwide and here in America where do you estimate we are time wise? What is your opinion on the next prophetic event to occur? Also, best regards to your wife and great to see you posting again. God Bless

  • Flight 93 on that 11th day had passengers too, including Ted Olsen’s wife!
    We’re dealing w/narciss apathetic freak’s!

    C/out the “Tridents” – whats going on w/that! Including ‘ground zero’!

  • Israel GOD’s people and land are protected by GOD. WHOEVER touché this land in a bad way is challenging GOD!

  • Thank you, Debbie, for your kind reply! I believe these are the wars and rumors of wars Christ spoke of in Matthew 24:6. For surely we are seeing the nations of people rising against themselves, Matthew 24:7. We see the pestilences and earthquakes in different places, as these things become common place. So, Jesus said these are the beginning of sorrows, as they plague the world. The worst of persecution has not started yet, but it is on the rise. You can blaspheme God, swear and curse all day long, it’s just fine, but don’t mention Jesus or God, or you will offend someone. TV is a prime example.
    According to Daniel, we should be watching for the PLO to offer a treaty of some sort to the Jews to continue their sacrifices to God once again. This will start the 7 years and we will have a short time to get ready after this. I don’t believe the false prophet will be effective until after the Abomination of Desolation. That is in the middle of the 7 years treaty. That is when the antichrist get’s his power from satan, Rev.13:3-5 He will come back from the dead, Rev.13:,3,14, Rev.17:11. This is when he gets his power. I believe he will get wounded in the battle in the sea with Chittim ( Cyprus), Daniel 11:30.
    Daniel says that because of that defeat, his indignation was against the covenant that he made with the Jews allies, (Chittim), Daniel 11:30.. All these events spark the beginning of that abomination that makes desolate. We will have no sure time on prophecy until we see that treaty, and then we will see the antichrist rise up with a small people, showing great power and influence. The Mark of the beast is brought on by the false prophet, which had power to do his wonders in the presence of the beast, Rev 13:12-14. So it will not be totally enforced until the tribulation starts, Rev.13:15-17.
    Gog and Magog does not come into the picture until the wrath of God is nearly over, and they are angry because of it. That is when they gather to fight the only known source of God’s people, the 144K, Rev 9:15, Rev 11:18, Rev 16:12,16. The 7th trumpet and the 7th vial signifies the battle is over.

    Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

    Rev 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
    Personally I fear for America. She is not mentioned in direct prophecy. But we can be sure when the mark is implied we will partake of it to remain in the trading game of the beast, anyone that is not written in the Lambs Book of Life Rev. 13:7-8. Then again we may be gone, as something causes the earth to darken, before and at the end of tribulation, Matthew 24:22,29.

  • Great post Ron!! Thank You!!
    Earthquake hit California this morning!!

  • Lacey: Do you believe your SINLESS as Ron Murphy believes he’s SINLESS?

    And he believes any one that believes Jesus coming in the atmosphere in 1st Thes. 4: 14-17 only believes in fables and fairy tales?

  • No, I’m not sinless…I try not to sin, but I’m not perfect. I ask for forgiveness of my sins EVERY night before bed.
    As far as the rapture or the tribulation, I’m not going to go there because I don’t know what’s going to happen…I’m just looking at all the signs that are right in front of our face!!
    How are you doing STL? Good to talk to you!!

  • STL, I could only hope Jesus would come for us before these awful things start to occur!!

  • Lacey: Its only going to get worse!

  • Pastor Larue. I have studied the timing of the rapture at length, and I cannot figure out who is correct? I do know however we are taught to look for Jesus and to pray that we be accounted worthy to escape all these things and to stand before the Son of Man. Many are looking for the antichrist, as I myself have done. I would hope the rapture is pre trib. Some believe in pre wrath. Others still something different. It is a very divisive topic. They all seem to have holes, but pre trib seems most likely to me. I have read many books on all the positions, prayed and read the bible asking God to show me the truth.

  • STL: I know, I know!

  • Jeffery: There is one basic arguement:

    Whose being raptured?

    And when?

    In 1st Thess. 4: 14-17 we see that it spoken that Jesus come in the clouds in the air ( atmosphere) as he calls up the dead fisrt, ( then this does not happen anywhere else in the Jacob’s Troubles or 7 year tribulation) then Jesus calls a christian that are alive, and all of these goes to heaven to be with the Lord forever.

    Then we see in Revelation 20:4 speaks of all those that was beheaded in the Tribulation refusing to take the Mark of the Beast. ( But all of these are (dead) christians that died in the Tribulation period.)

    Now do you see any living ones waiting departure to heaven at this time?

    Then they’re told to wait a little longer!

    For the 2nd Coming of the Lord that Jesus sets both feet on Mount Olives.

    Now we know Jesus was or came to earth live among the human manking for about 33 years, died on the cross for our sins, was resurrected.

    At this time all the old testament saints and the one died on the right of Jesus cross was also resurrected in Matthew 27:53-54.

    This was Jesus 1st Coming!

    Now the jews wait for Elijah to appear in the Great Tribulation with another prophet to let the remaining jews know exactly who their Messiah will be, as they proclaimed Jesus christ as their Messiah. So there waiting for Jesus to appear in the 2nd Coming on Mount Olives.

    So the Rapture must happen before the Tribulation begins, because there is no living Born Again Christians in the end to be Rapture, as every one is dead and wait for the 2nd Coming?

    See my point?

  • Yeah Good point. Pastor. Thank you.

  • I have always been a rapture believer…as far as I can remember that’s what my Grandmother always talked about!!

  • Hey Jeffery! What are the holes you see in what I teach? Maybe I can fill them in. I don’t see holes in it. It all makes so much sense to me, the whole Bible does. It would be a delight for me to try to explain any scripture, you may need understanding on. Glory be to the Most High, who gives understanding to the meek and hides His wisdom from the proud. The wise will fear God, and the wise will understand. The prideful will not fear Him and they will not see wisdom.

    Psa_111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
    Pro_9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

  • Murphy I never said what you teach. I don’t know or care what position you teach. What makes you think my post was about you anyway? I will never argue the time of the rapture if thats what your getting at.

    If you want to see real kingdom power which is what it’s all about, the come to the Philippines with me in July for 1 year. There you will see Jesus in action. And be humbled.

  • Jeffery, did I imply, you were talking about me? That was not my intention. What I said, brother was if you find flaws in my doctrine please point them out, it helps me to understand what I need to teach on. I understand, and in a way can only assume others see it, too. If you show me where you are not seeing scripture, I might be able to help. But since you reject it, no sense in going any farther. God Bless you, with that ministry! Christians sure do take things personal.

  • STL, Jesus put it this way.

    Luk_9:27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
    That doesn’t leave a lot that was raptured. Most will die. When John seen the crowd in Rev 20:4, the majority was those that died, nearly all of them. So few that they was not worth the mention. Even Paul said, we that are alive won’t prevent them from rising. Those that are in heaven in the book of Revelation, before the kingdom age, are the martyrs in every case. Show me one case, that it says otherwise?

  • Luk 9:22 Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.
    Luk 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
    Luk 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
    Luk 9:25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
    Luk 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.
    Luk 9:27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
    Don’t anyone see, the Lord’s words that He’s speaking, are pertaining to suffering? And if you follow Him you must take that cross and carry it everyday. And if you seek to save your life then you are not worthy of Him! He talks about the kingdom to come and the few that will be left, when it does come. Can anyone put it together? How long will you be blinded, because of your desires? Take up your cross and follow the Lord.

    Rom_8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

  • God Bless you Ron. You and your wife are kind gracious and tolerant people. Thank you for taking the time to respond.

  • Jeffery: The main point of arguement from post tribbers they try there hardest to explain the rapture happens at the end of the tribulation.

    But in Revelation as stated in 20:4 there are the ones was beheaded, so I guess these saint that died refusing to take the MARK, are in spirit form, while they wait for the end of the Tribulation and the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ.

    But in 1 Thess. 4: 16-17 also explain about the dead saints that been waiting for their immortal bodies from 1st Cor. 15: 51-53 these dead saints been waiting since the Pentecost to be Raptured.

    But the arguement these post tribbers can not explain away, not only the dead in 1st Thess. 4:14-17; get resurrected but the living saints gets raptured at the same time as these dead saints.

    No place in Revelation or at the end of the Tribulation does living saints gets rapture or caught up to heaven to be with the Lord Jesus Christ forever.

    Only behead saints while they wait for the end of the Tribulation, each time I asked Ron Murphy, Debbie, or Suez, to explain this fact to me, they simply change the subject or refuse to address it at all.

  • Ron Murphy: Here you go again, explaining your post tribulation theory, as you SAID IN POST 34, AS YOU SAID; IF YOU FIND FLAWS IN MY DOCTRINE?

    I thought we are studying GOD’S DOCTRINE. SO AGAIN your saying your EQUAL TO GOD AGAIN AND SINCE YOUR SINLESS, this makes you EQUAL TO GOD?

  • RON MURPHY: We all are listening to the LORD Jesus speaking to us, but your trying to force us to listen to your DOCTRINE, these words do not come from Jesus they come from you!

  • Blood Moons Are Coming

  • I can see it now…. Israeli’s fighters shoot down the Malaysia Flight 370 jet as it approaches Jerusalem… And the jet crashes onto the temple mount destroying the Dome of Rock Mosque…

  • Act_2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

  • Quote”Only behead saints while they wait for the end of the Tribulation, each time I asked Ron Murphy, Debbie, or Suez, to explain this fact to me, they simply change the subject or refuse to address it at all.” unquote, STL. Yes I explained this to you, Show me one verse in the book of Revelation that shows anything but the martyrs in heaven at anytime, their is none. Only martyrs and those that endure until the end will be there, because those that endure until the end, the same will be saved.

    Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
    Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
    Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

  • The martyrs only get to reign with Christ, as others will get resurrected at the white throne judgment and get their reward at that time.
    That’s what the Bible teaches.

    Rev 20:4 and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
    Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

    These are the ones called to the marriage supper.

    Rev 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

    Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

    Rev 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

  • Not just once but twice it said it.

    Rev 20:4 I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
    Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
    Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

    How can the dead be raised to reign with Christ if we are taken first? Impossible!

    1Th 4:15 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.
    1Th 4:16 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:
    1Th 4:17 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.
    Who will live through the tribulation of those days?

    Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

    Luk_9:27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

  • Ron Murphy: Keep quoting scriptures but only Debbie and Suez is listen to you.




  • Well STL, it’s Quite simple actually, Matthew 24 plainly says he’s coming to gather his elect from on end of heaven to the other, that is everywhere there is in the universe, that will include living and dead, but the dead must come first you see, so the one coming to reign with Christ must go first, proving the rapture has to be after trib once again. If those dead are resurrected before the living go then Paul’s 1Thess 4: 14-17 would be wrong. The dead didn’t go first in that case. Where for us must assume the living had to be raptured after the tribulation in order to include those that reign with Christ that died before them.

  • What many do not employ in their thinking, is what Paul was speaking of in 1Thess. 4, just exactly what Jesus spoke of when he said there shall be some standing here that shall not face death until they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom, Matthew 16:28. You see they expected God to come in their life time. They was suffering martyrdom nearly everyday. Paul knew that if they were alive at that time they would not prevent the others from coming forth. Quite simple if you put all in all and reason.

  • STL, I not only believe so , I know so, because the word of God says it. It is the desire of man to change it around to suit their needs of feeling secure. But a pretrib rapture is not what God has in store or else He would of raptured the early church also, instead of them being martyred. They were much more righteous than we are. How many today will give all they have to distribute to the saints? They had genuine love for the brethren.

  • EU probably will stop buying their coffee from Putin and start buying it from Israel possibly via Ukraine.
    This will probably send put ski into a flam in’ rage and will attempt to invade Israel.
    But GOD WILL totally annihilate 5/6 of the kjb encroachment forces and 1/6 runs away to Siberia.
