If true that "every eye shell see Him" (speaking of the return of Jesus) how can there be a "Secret Rapture"?

So these are two separate events? Can you prove that to me with scripture references?
The evidence is too extensive to put into this small space. If you wish to study them on your own, you might want to consult Dwight Pentecost's Things to Come, pp. 206-7. Any reputable pretrib rapture scholar will also include these differences.
G-- why do you never answer for yourself with scripture in context? you alwayS parrot or refer to TEACHINGS OF MEN. If we wanted that we would read their book or go to "church", we want truth from the Holy Spirit- that we can share with each other
there is NO such thing as a rapture, it is a false doctrine from the 1700's.
The righteous SHALL inherit the earth--- as it was in the days of Noah the un righteous will be removed. scripture is clear on this. rapture is a false doctrine of men
But what verses support the Rapture?
Jesus directed these words to the Jewish remnant who would be living during the time of the end; they will indeed inherit the Earth. But the Church will be translated before the Tribulation period, and they will return with Jesus to set up His kingdo
glynch-- that is not what scripture teaches, it is what MEN teach and is not true. It is a doctrine of men.
The "Rapture" and the "Apocalypse" are not the same thing. Christ "raptures"-- takes the Church to glory-- before the seventieth week of Daniel; the "Apocalypse" is the last book in the New Testament, and describes Jesus' return to the Earth.
My point was that every generation claims biblical events are happening in their lifetime.
You are right. However, if God says that various specific things will happen, they will happen when the time is right. The Rapture has no signs; Christians look only for Christ's return. Those who set dates cannot and do not know; no one knows.
ufortunately you are wrong--- the false doctrine of the rapture has only been taught since the 1700,s The bible says as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be and he UN righteouse were removed and will be again. The righteous stay
I do not understand what you are saying. Do you think the Rapture is a man-made doctrine? Does not Paul say that Jesus will come in the air and take His people to heaven? If Paul wrote inspired Scripture, how is the Rapture man-made?
No sir, I am not saying that the rapture is man-made but rather the phrase "Secret Rapture." I should have been more clear.
That is why I asked the question; for I was raised to believe there will be no rapture of "the Church", however I know many Christians that are counting on it.
Paul meant the mystery of the Rapture to comfort Christians (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1 Cor. 15:50-58). We are counting on Christ delivering us from the wrath to come (1 Thess. 1:10).
YES the false doctrine of the rapture is a man made false doctrine and was never taught before the early 1700s when schofield and darby and other name seekers promoted it.
