    That's why God say stand and doing all to stand, stand be grounded iin the word of God.

    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!

    The coming of the Lord, and the catching away of his bride is two different events, when the second coming of the Lord appears the church has already been raptured the church is already with him in heaven for he is coming back with ten thousands and thousands of his Saints

    "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled.." We are grateful for the small times of quiet and happiness; yet even in these we know there is certainly evil and trouble coming on the horizon. We have to walk with our hearts and minds with Christ in heaven Who is our expectation!
