"REPLY TO : Donna Danna ( 23 Jan 2022 ) Rapture vs. Second Coming"


Hi Donna ,


Jesus spoke of the resurrection / rapture in His Olivet Discourse as recorded in Matthew 24:29-31 , and John spoke of the Lord's Second Coming in Revelation 19:11-16.


Notice that in  Matthew 24:30 & 31 Jesus describes Himself as "THE SON OF MAN"  coming "ON THE CLOUDS" to "GATHER HIS ELECT"  , ie. resurrect & rapture "HIS ELECT" CHURCH.


Notice that in Revelation 19 :11-16 John describes Jesus as "THE KING OF KINGS , AND LORD OF LORDS" sitting "ON A WHITE HORSE" , and His Elect Church "FOLLOWED HIM UPON WHITE HORSES".




There  is NO gathering together of "His Elect" Church at the Second Coming of the Lord as described in Revelation 19:11-16 because the Lord has PREVIOUSLY gathered together "His Elect" Church during the resurrection / rapture as described  in Matthew 24:30-31. 


Matthew 24:29-31 is  describing the Lord as "THE SON OF MAN" coming for the resurrection / rapture , ie. "GATHERING TOGETHER" of "HIS ELECT "  Church. 


Revelation 19:11-16 is describing the Lord as "THE KING OF KINGS and THE LORD OF LORDS " at His Second Coming accompanied with "HIS ELECT" Church.


Blessings to you......
