The daughter of famed evangelist Billy Graham says a missing airliner offers a glimpse of a post-Rapture world.

Anne Graham Lotz wondered last week on her blog where the 239 passengers and crew members had gone after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished, reported Right Wing Watch.

The author and evangelist said she can’t help but wonder if its disappearance is similar to events forecast in Thessalonians 4:17, when true believers will be taken from Earth by God to Heaven.

“Is this worldwide sense of shock and helplessness, of questions and confusion, of fear and grief, a glimpse of things to come?” Lotz wrote. “Is this a small snapshot of what the entire world will experience the day after the rapture of the church?”

She said the Bible was clear, and that Christ would return after the Rapture but before the end of days.

“There is coming a moment in time when Jesus will come back to gather to Himself all those -- dead and alive -- who have put their trust in Him,” Lotz wrote. “And on that day, the world will be asking, Where have all the people gone? Not just 239 of us, but millions of us.”

If she’s right, let’s hope that CNN’s Don Lemon will be left behind to speculate what has happened.
