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.
the word CAUGHT UP, originally from Greek; Harpazō and Latin; RAPTURO, that's where the word RAPTURE came from. Bible is not originally written in English!
Yahushua (Jesus) was raptured, Elijah was raptured, Enoch was raptured.
Ecc 1:9 Whatever has happened before will happen again. Whatever has been done before will be done again. There is nothing new under the sun.
Dan 12:1 The person who looked like a human continued, "At that time Michael, the great commander, will stand up on behalf of the descendants of your people. It will be a time of trouble unlike any that has existed from the time there have been nations until that time. But at that time your people, everyone written in the book, will be RESCUED.
Just like the days of Noah, the true believers will be rescued before the great wrath of God. Not all who claimed to be Christians will be Rapture, read the parable of 10 virgins (Mat 25).
