And that would refer to the Rapture of the Church not the Second Coming of Christ....
We need to be ready for the Rapture..As Jesus comes as a thief of the night....
Tara, what part of “at the coming of the Son of Man” do you not understand?
That is absolutely referring to Christ coming again, as a thief IN the night, not OF the night. Like a burglar who comes when you are sleeping and not expecting it.
We need to be ready for anything this life throws at us, understanding fully that it could all end at any moment and that our Savior will welcome us into His arms when it does.
Seriously, quit trying to interpret Scripture and just read what it says. You understand that, while it says those living when He comes will be “caught up in the clouds” to meet him, the word “rapture” is not in scripture but rather one that man made up?
Just asking you to read scripture with an open mind and new eyes. It’s much better that all the stuff that flawed theologians throw at us.
