"One other (sort of) rapture recorded in scripture could this be anything?"

John, you wrote:

...wouldn't it be cool if the rapture date were hidden in plain sight in the only two scriptures that record past raptures?

And I immediately thought to myself, wait a minute, there is yet one other scripture that records a rapture (caught away Philip) howbeit a sideways rapture from one location to another one, not to heaven. And I wondered if there might be a significance in this one too since it is a very unique thing in all of scripture. I wonder if it might symbolize that a certain number of us might be changed at the rapture but not go immediately to heaven but remain on earth to minister to those who remain behind. Could this verse be factored in at all?
 
Acts 8:
39.  And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
 40.  But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.
 
Here is what is weird, just as with your other scripture examples of where the cloud was taken up and in five of the seven examples it says they went on their journey; so also here it says that when Philip was caught away the eunuch went on with his journey (went on his way).
 
Let me get even weirder for a second, as I continued reading your post I accidentally said "eunuch" when I read "Enoch" and had to do a double take and shake my head out to read it again and realize my mistake but then I suddenly saw the close resemblance between those two words. Maybe I'm just getting ridiculous...
 
Just thinking out loud,
