There is no Rapture of the church PERIOD.
What the Rapture is NOT:
Jesus returns twice, once BEFORE the Tribulation whereby He resurrects the Dead in Christ then gathers those believers who are alive and everyone receives immortal bodies. The Lord then transports every believer, previously dead and alive, to heaven where they wait out the Tribulation.
What the Rapture is:
Jesus returns once, AFTER the Anti-Christ is revealed, at the tail end of the Tribulation, at the 7th trumpet. Jesus brings angels and the dead in Christ on white horses. Those believers who are still alive and remain on earth are caught up to the Lord whereby they receive immortal bodies. Everyone immediately returns to earth with Christ for the Battle of Armageddon and to reign with Him for 1,000 years. Those alive on earth at the time of Jesus' return do not go to heaven until AFTER the millennium.
The teaching that the Lord comes before the Anti-Christ is NOT found in the Bible ANYWHERE. There is no passage that places the Lord's return BEFORE the Tribulation. There is no passage which teaches the Lord comes twice. There is no passage that teaches that those believers who are alive and remain go to heaven to wait out the Tribulation. Nowhere can there be found a teaching by Jesus, Paul or any disciple the concept of a Rapture, especially one that precedes the Tribulation.
To arrive at such a teaching, men must contort and misapply multiple Bible passages that really all refer to the one and only return of Christ. They take those that don't mention the timing as "Rapture" passages while leaving those that do mention the timing as Second Advent passages.
I firmly believe that this Rapture lie is the work of Satan because for the Anti-Christ to fool people into thinking he is the real Christ, he has to be the first "Christ" to appear. So if Satan can get the Church to teach in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, he can not only discredit the church but also fool the world into thinking he is the real Christ.
If responding with a view the supports the Rapture, please cite chapter and verse. I don't want to read something a man wrote as proof. Because if it isn't in the Bible, it isn't true.
