There are some words that are being translated incorrectly. The words "in the clouds " should read "in clouds ". Colloquial a large group, The saints in Heaven coming down with Christ. The words "in the air " should be translated as "into air " the breath of life as in Genesis 2 7 . In both cases "the " is not in the Greek manuscripts. Some translations have it correct.

the Bible is clear a second coming, not a third. it doesn 't speak of a secret return of Christ in the air. pre wrath makes a lot more sense than pre trib! it takes a lot of related scriptures to see the light, but Matthew 24 is pretty clear the word 'then '...thank God Jesus IS returning!!!be prepared!
