THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO "GATHERING TOGETHER OF HIS ELECT" AT HIS SECOND COMING.........
The "GATHERING TOGETHER OF HIS ELECT" Body of Christ Church happens at the resurrection & rapture, NOT AT HIS SECOND COMING.
Matthew 24:30-31 ( Jesus speaking of the resurrection / rapture )
"........they shall SEE the Son of Man COMING on the clouds of heaven.......and they shall GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT from the four winds......." ( "HIS ELECT" is HIS BODY OF CHRIST CHURCH )
There is absolutely NO "GATHERING TOGETHER OF HIS ELECT" at the SECOND COMING of the Lord because "HIS ELECT" Body of Christ Church are already "GATHERED TOGETHER" "WITH HIM" according to :
1 Thessalonians 4:17 ( at the rapture )
"Then we which are alive and remain shall be GATHERED UP TOGETHER with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air...."
Revelation 17:14 ( at the Second Coming )
"......for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings, and THEY THAT ARE 'WITH HIM' ARE CALLED , and CHOSEN, and FAITHFUL."
Revelation 19:14 ( at the Second Coming )
"And the armies which were IN HEAVEN FOLLOWED HIM ON WHITE HORSES CLOTHED IN FINE LINEN, WHITE AND CLEAN."
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT:
The ONLY "GATHERING TOGETHER" that happens at the SECOND COMING of the Lord is according to :
Revelation 16:14 ( at the Second Coming )
"For they are the spirits of devils , working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world TO GATHER THEM TOGETHER TO THE BATTLE of that great day of God Almighty."
Many Chrisrians MISTAKENLY believe that in ( Matthew 24:29-31 ) Jesus is speaking of the SECOND COMING of the Lord. They are wrong. ( Matthew 24:29-31 ) is Jesus speaking of the RESURRECTION & the RAPTURE because that is ABSOLUTELY WHEN "they shall GATHER TOGETHER HIS ELECT from the four winds of the earth", and the dead souls of the saints "FROM ONE END OF HEAVEN TO THE OTHER."
Matthew 24:29-31 is absolutely speaking of the resurrection & rapture , and NOT THE SECOND COMING.
According to Your Holy Word, come Lord Jesus !
