The first Rapture takes place before Jesus is given the seven-sealed book. Therefore, it takes place before the first seal is broken.
Rev 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, COME UP HITHER, and I will shew thee things which must be HEREAFTER."
Rev 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne."
Rev 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see."
There are two Raptures, one Mid-Trib and one Post-Trib.
THE FIRST RAPTURE IS MID-TRIB, WHEN MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL COMES
1Th 4:16,,17 says, "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel (i.e., Michael, Jude 1:6), and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
MID-TRIB: "REJOICE, YE HEAVENS, AND YE THAT DWELL IN THEM"
Rev 12:6-12 says, "And the woman (i.e., Israel) fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place (i.e., Petra) prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, NOW IS COME SALVATION (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., the Rapture) , and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them."
WHEN MICHAEL STANDS UP MID-TRIB, THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL TAKE PLACE
Dan 12:1 says, "And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book."
How could we have missed that for so long?
THE SECOND RAPTURE TAKES PLACE WHEN THERE IS A MIGHTY EARTHQUAKE AT THE END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION
Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great EARTHQUAKE, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."
Rev_16:12-19 says, "And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 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 to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an EARTHQUAKE, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God".
"Marilyn Agee: Possible Rapture Date"
Possible Resurrection and Rapture date will be at the pouring of the Sixth Vial Judgement by the Sixth Angel just prior to the punishment of the Great Prostitute/Mystery Babylon and Armageddon War.
Behold (Look, Here I am), I come as a thief (to snatch and steal away). Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
And there came unto me one of the seven angels (sixth angel) which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the BRIDE, the Lamb's wife.
The Sixth Angel who poured out the Sixth Vial Judgement one thousand years ago was the one who witness the resurrection and rapture of the Bride thatís way he is the one who introduce to John the Bride.
Jesus Christ coming to get His Bride several times is mere speculation.
