So it’s time to post again the difference between the “Rapture” event and the “Second Coming” with scriptural references that CLEARLY show the difference between the two that people are constantly confusing–this is why they also want to say there is no rapture because they are using scripture for the Second Coming for the rapture–but you will see that just isn’t the case according to the Bible…

RAPTURE Vs. SECOND COMING in the Scriptures:

Two Separate Events:

RAPTURE: the Rescue of the True Church to Safety to be with CHRIST

AND

The SECOND COMING: The Return of the True Church to Earth WITH CHRIST WHO will finally deal with the evil on Earth.

Scriptural clarity:

Rapture
1. The church will meet Christ in the Air (1 Thes. 4:17)

Second Coming
The church will return to the earth with Christ (Zech. 14:4)

Rapture
2. The church will be taken to heaven (1 Thes. 4:17; John 14: 1-3)

Second Coming
The church will return to the earth from heaven (Jude 14; Matt. 25:31)

Rapture
3. Christ will come for His saints (2 Thes. 2:1, Thes. 4:13-18)

Second Coming
Christ will come with His Saints (Rev. 19:14)

Rapture
4. Seen only by believers (1 Cor. 15:51-52)

Second Coming
Every eye will see HIM (Rev. 1:7; 19:11-16; Matt. 24:30)

Rapture
5. Christ Himself will gather the saints (1 Thes. 4:16)

Second Coming
The angels will gather the elect (Matt. 24:31)
