Oh OK so the rapture is the resurrection of the saint ? This is not a coming is that right ?
- I think that is probably one of the good ways to explain it and no, it is not the same as the 2nd coming , all be it, it is a coming of Christ so to speak , when he gathers his church in the air.
- The "coming " part is why some get it mixed up. But, clearly for me, the 2nd coming is Christ coming riding a White Horse..Revelation 19: 11-16
- A way to look at it I suppose is that Jesus came to save, Christ will come to gather up his church and he will finally come to to judge, make war and destroy the enemy.
- After which he will establish his earthly kingdom for a 1000 years.
