The idea of the Rapture wasn’t introduced until the 1800’s and was later popularized by Hal Lindsey in the 1970’s.
I would suggest reading the article at the link. It might be a little long, but it is very helpful in explaining how the rise of the flawed belief in amillenialism occurred.
"And we will not have you ignorant brethren, concerning them that are asleep, that you be not sorrowful, even as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again: even so them who have slept through Jesus, will God bring with him. For this we say unto you in the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them who have slept. For the Lord himself shall come down from heaven with commandment and with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpet of God: and the dead who are in Christ shall rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, shall be taken up together with them in the clouds to meet Christ, into the air: and so shall we be always with the Lord. Wherefore, comfort ye one another with these words." (1 Thessalonians 4:12-17 Douay-Rheims Bible)
The Greek verb arpagaysometha (from harpadzo), here translated as "shall be taken up," has the sense of seized, caught up, plucked, taken away; and in the Vulgate is the Latin verb rapiemur from which the correct and exactly descriptive English word "rapture" is derived. The Vulgate was translated circa 400 A. D. by Jerome.
That is an answer to your proposal.
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17)
