    Hubert; The way I read it, every indication from Scripture is that the Coming of the Lord and the Catching Away of the Saints is all one event. Why else would the Lord warn us to not let men mislead us about there having to be a falling away first and the man of sin be revealed; and that we must endure to the end and be faithful unto death? After Noah entered the ark God didn't wait seven years!

We have to walk with our hearts and minds with Christ in heaven Who is our expectation!
