Rapture at the Second Coming


Matthew 24:29-31 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Mark 13:24-27 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

Luke 21:25-28 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Three gospels describing the same event. Take a closer look at them.

Q: When does this event happen?
A: 1) Immediately after the tribulation of those days
2) But in those days, after that tribulation

Q: What event or events are going to take place?
A: 1) the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven
2) the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory
3) signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory

Q: What happens when the Son of Man appears?
A: 1) he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other
2) he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven

Q: Where are the elect gathered from?
A: 1) from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other
2) from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven

Q: Who gathers the elect?
A: 1) he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet
2) he send his angels

Q: Who sees the Son of Man when He sends angels to gather His elect from earth and heaven?
A: 1) all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming
2) they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory
3) they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory

After a closer look we read that Jesus will be seen when His elect are gathered or raptured. The rapture and the second coming are not at different times. They are during the same event.

Q: Why will all the tribes of the earth mourn?
A: When Jesus returns and His elect are gathered the whole world will see Him and have to bow down and believe in Him. Non-believers will know they have messed up. Believers will have loved ones in that group. We are to believe in God without the “seeing is believing” mentality. There is no second chance after the elect are gathered. We have had many chances already. This is one reason why the “left behind” teaching is dangerous. Some non-believers are just waiting for a mass disappearance of people before they believe. That is “seeing is believing”. Once Jesus is seen by all its done. Too late. Finished. You should have believed before you seen Him.

John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
