Here is their fear, that those believers who die before the Rapture will not be resurrected until much later, that is, until after the Millennium. Paul directly contradicts that fear. The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. These are prophesied eschatological signs that attend the return of Messiah. This could refer to the Rapture or the Second Coming or both. Most naturally it refers to both, for the fact that we will meet the Lord in the air, not in heaven, suggests that Jesus’ Second Coming takes seven years to complete. The Rapture and Second Coming are two phases of His return. The dead in Christ will rise first, that is, immediately before we who are alive. The word caught up (harpazœ) in the Latin Vulgate is translated with a word from which comes the word Rapture. There will be no more separations. No more death. From that point on, believers will be forever with the Lord. Reply May 4, 2020 Varnel Watson are you saying the Holy Spirit will be taken after the rapture? Reply May 4, 2020 RichardAnna Boyce no mention of Holy Spirit Reply May 5, 2020 Camille Becker John 16:8 “And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin and of righteousness, and of judgment..” There will be those who will come to Christ after the rapture.
