RAPTURE

Christ does not return to Earth, but calls born again believers up to the clouds with Him, then takes them to Heaven. John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. [KJV]

1 Thes. 4:17 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. [KJV]

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

Christ returns to the Earth to rule Israel and the world from Jerusalem. Zech. 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. [KJV] Luke 1:32-33 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: [33] And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. [KJV] Rev. 19:11-15 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [KJV]

RAPTURE

There will be a resurrection of ALL New Testament believers who have died up to that time. 1 Cor. 15:52-53 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. [53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. [KJV]

1 Thes. 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [KJV]

The Rapture is not even remotely related to the Second Coming of Christ. It is an event completely different than His Second Coming.

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

There will be no resurrection at this time, not until the Antichrist is defeated. Rev. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [KJV]

Rev. 20:1-5 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. [2] And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, [3] And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. [4] And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. [5] But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. [KJV]

RAPTURE

The bodies of all living believers (like all the dead believers who will be resurrected), shall be changed to new, immortal and incorruptible bodies. We cannot access Heaven with the corruptible bodies we have now.

1 Cor. 15:51-53 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. [53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. [KJV]

1 Thes. 4:17 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. [KJV]

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

All the resurrected saints will return with Christ from Heaven, having already been changed into immorality.

Zech. 14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. [KJV]

Rev. 19:11-15 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [KJV]

RAPTURE

The Rapture will take place during a time of peace and prosperity. The world will not be looking for any type of judgment from God.

Luke 17:26-30 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. [27] They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. [28] Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; [29] But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. [30] Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. [31] In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. [32] Remember Lot's wife. [33] Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. [34] I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. [35] Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. [36] Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. [KJV] Jesus' Words.

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

Again, the Second Coming of Christ will be in total contrast to the Rapture. When Christ comes the second time, it will be in the midst of the worst war this world has ever seen. There will be great devastation of this planet. Matthew 24:21-22 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. [22] And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. [KJV] Jesus' Words.

Also see: Rev. 6:8-17; Rev. 9:15; Rev. 16:3-21; Rev.19:11-21 (for conditions of this world).

RAPTURE

The Rapture will take place when conditions of the world seem to say all is well. It will take place when very few expect Christ to come (Luke 18:8). He will catch the church off guard.

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. [KJV] No one knows the day or the hour when this event will take place. The mighty angels don’t know, only the Father knows.

Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. [KJV]

You must be ready at all times, because Jesus will come when least expected.

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

Again, there is great contrast in the Rapture and Second Coming. When Jesus comes at the Second Coming, not even the Antichrist will be caught off guard, for there will be many visible signs that will warn everyone that Christ is very near.

Matthew 24:29-33 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: [30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [31] And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. [32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: [33] So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.[KJV]

Rev. 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. [KJV]

RAPTURE

The Rapture will occur when the church is sleeping. There will be little expectation of Jesus’ return. This event will take place BEFORE the Tribulation period.

Matthew 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. [KJV] Jesus’ delay in coming at the Rapture will cause many to stop watching for Him. But, God has a specific day planned for this tremendous event. We must NOT go to sleep on the job.

Mark 13:35-37 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: [36] Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. [37] And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch. [KJV]

We must keep a sharp lookout! We have NO idea when Jesus will come in the clouds; in the evening, midnight, early dawn, or late daybreak. We must not let Him find us sleeping when He arrives without warning. We must WATCH and be ready for His return!

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

There is great contrast in these two events. The Second Coming will take place at the END of the Tribulation period, in the midst of worldwide devastation, distress and hopelessness. The Antichrist and his armies will be attacking Israel. Much of Jerusalem is captured. Israel is at the point of being exterminated.

Zech. 14:1-2 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. [2] For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. [KJV] The Second Coming of Christ will come when Israel’s possessions will be plundered right in front of their eyes. God will permit ALL the nations to fight against Jerusalem. The city will be taken, houses plundered, and the women raped.

Zech. 12:2-3 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. [3] And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. [KJV] Zech. 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. [KJV]

RAPTURE

At the Rapture all TRUE believers (both the dead ones and those still alive) will be taken out of this world of sin, pain and sorrow. We will be forever with our Lord, with new bodies similar to His (Phil.3:21; 1 John 3:2). We will never ever sin again, never ever grieve our Lord again!

Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; [KJV] We look forward to that wonderful event when the glory of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ, will be revealed.

1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. [KJV] Everyone who believes this will keep themselves pure, just as Christ is pure.

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

The Second Coming could hardly be called a "blessed hope" for there would be very few believers (if the church were still here) that would survive the Tribulation period. All who refuse the mark of the Antichrist (666), and those who refuse to worship the Antichrist, will be killed.

Rev. 13:15-17 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. [16] And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: [17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. [KJV]

Jesus has promised to keep TRUE believers from the Tribulation.

Rev. 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. [KJV]

1 Thes. 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. [KJV] To me, the wrath to come means Hell and the Tribulation period.

RAPTURE

The early church was taught to expect Christ to come in the clouds at any moment. This meaning; that we should live a life pleasing to Him, so that when He does appear, we should not be ashamed.

1 John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. [KJV] We are taught to watch and wait and be ready for He could come at any moment!

Luke 12:35-36 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; [36] And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. [KJV] We should be dressed for service and well prepared, for we are waiting for our master to return.

Philip. 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: [KJV] TRUE believers are citizens of Heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. Let us be eagerly waiting for Him to return to get us.

How can we wait and watch for something that wonít happen until after the Tribulation??? There HAS TO BE a special Coming of Christ that could happen at any time (the Rapture).

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

The Second Coming is much different than the Rapture. It cannot be expected to happen at any time. Because of this, none of the Scriptures telling us to watch and wait could possibly refer to the Second Coming of Christ. Those Scripture Passages could refer only to the pre-trib Rapture of Christ.

RAPTURE

The pre-trib Rapture has a very powerful and purifying importance on all those who have this hope in Him. The fact that it could happen at any moment means that it must come before the Antichrist is revealed to the world, and before the Tribulation period. IF Christ could come at any moment, as He has promised, we must not waste any time in our obedience to Him. We must witness for it is a command (Mat.28:19), we must not indulge in sin with the idea that we have plenty of time to repent. We do NOT know how much time we have!

1 John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. [KJV] We must continue to live in fellowship with Christ so that when He does return, we will have courage and not shrink back from Him in shame.

1 John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. [KJV] If we have hope that He will return, we will keep ourselves pure, just as Christ is pure.

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

To look forward to the Second Coming or a post-trib Rapture doesnít make sense. It sure wouldnít be purifying in any respect. It wouldnít take place for 7 years; so there would be a lot of time to delay witnessing, a lot of time to continue in sin with hopes for repentance later on.

2 Tim. 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. [KJV]

Psalm 51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. [KJV]

RAPTURE

The Rapture is not only to be expected at any moment, but to be eagerly looked forward to. We are to ask our Lord to come quickly. We have a much better place that we are going to, and will spend eternity there.

Rev. 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. [KJV] This is saying that anyone who wants to (whosoever) can come and drink the water of life without charge. In other words, salvation (eternal life) is free, a gift from God (Rom.6:23; Eph.2:8-9).

Rev. 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. [KJV] Jesus is the faithful witness. Here He says, "Yes, I will come quickly."

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

The Second Coming will not take place until the end of the Tribulation period. He will come in judgment to rescue Israel, to put an end to Armageddon, and to destroy Satanís Antichrist along with his kingdom and all his armies which will be many.

Rev. 19:19-21 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [21] And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. [KJV]

RAPTURE

There will be at least two events occurring in Heaven for which the church (born again believers) must be present: the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. [KJV]

2 Cor. 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. [KJV]

Rev. 19:7-9 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. [8] And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. [9] And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. [KJV] Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.

Let us watch and wait with eager anticipation for our Lordís call. It could come at any time! Let us tell others about Jesus and the salvation only He can bring to us.

SECOND COMING of CHRIST

It is clear that the Second Coming of Christ cannot happen until these two marvelous events take place. It is only after the church is married to the Bridegroom (the Lamb) that she will be able to join Him in returning back to the Earth to rescue Israel and destroy Antichrist and his forces.

See: Marriage Supper of the Lamb

Rev. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [KJV] The armies of Heaven (true believers, the church, the bride), dressed in pure white linen, follow Christ on white horses. What a day this will be!

The RAPTURE

How will it happen?

1 Cor. 15:51-53 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. [53] For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. [KJV]

1 Thes. 4:13-18 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. [14] For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. [15] For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. [16] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, 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. [18] Wherefore comfort one another with these words. [KJV]

John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. [2] In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. [KJV]

From these 3 Passages, we can figure the sequence of events in the Rapture. The Rapture is NOT the coming of Christ to Earth in "power and great glory." It is where Jesus comes to take all the faithful ones, Godís children, to Heaven.

  • 1. Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus, will descend from His Father’s House, where He is at this present time (John 14:1-3; 1 Thes. 4:16). Jesus will NOT come to Earth; He will stay in the clouds. From the clouds He will summon us to come to Him.
  • 2. He will "come again to receive us to Himself" (John 14:1-3). Jesus CANNOT lie! He plainly tells us He will come. Believe Him!
  • 3. Jesus will call and resurrect all dead believers first. (1 Thes. 4:14-15)
  • 4. As the Lord descends from Heaven, He will shout, with a loud command ( 1 Thes. 4:16). All will take place in the "twinkling of an eye" (1 Cor.15:52).
  • 5. We will hear the voice of the archangel (1 Thes. 4:16).
  • 6. We will also hear the trumpet sound (1 Thes. 4:16). This is NOT the 7th trumpet in Revelation 11:15.
  • 7. The dead in Christ will rise first. The corruptible (impure) ashes and molecules of their dead bodies will be made incorruptible (pure and immaculate) and will be rejoined with their spirits, which Jesus will take with Him (1 Thes. 4:16-17).
  • 8. Then we which are alive and remain shall be changed (made incorruptible by having our bodies made immortal, like Jesus’ Body (1 Cor.15:51,53).
  • 9. Then we will be raptured (caught up) together with Him in the clouds (1 Thes. 4:17).
  • 10. All believers (those dead and those who are alive) will be united in the clouds (1 Thes. 4:17).
  • 11. We will meet our Lord and Saviour, Jesus the Christ (1 Thes.4:17).
  • 12. He receives us to Himself, and takes us to the Father’s House (Heaven) that "where I am, you may be also" (John 14:3).
  • 13. "And thus we shall always be with the Lord" (1 Thes.4:17).

Christ’s Coming

The day of Christ’s Coming, will arrive soon,
Will it be night? or morning? or at noon?
Most folk won’t be ready, for that great sight,
The Rapture will be, as a thief in the night.

The Rapture will be, for God’s people alone,
Only for those, His Blood did atone.
Christ Jesus will come, and His Bride He’ll take,
All others that day, Christ will forsake.

Will you at the Rapture, be left behind?
Are you watching for Him? or are you blind?
Do you go along with this evil world’s ways?
Or are you prepared, for this special day?

The Rapture will come, as in Noah’s day,
All will be at ease, going their own way.
We must watch, for we know not when He’ll come,
If we’re not ready, we’ll miss that trip Home.

Two people in one bed, one stays, one will go,
The one left behind, will have much sorrow.
For he the Great Tribulation will enter,
He will have to wait to see Heav’n’s grandeur.

Two together, working out in a field,
But only one to Jesus’ call will yield.
And the other one, will be left behind,
And his fellow worker, he’ll not find.

God’s true children, must do more than believe,
If all God’s blessings, they want to receive.
We must trust, but we also must obey,
If we expect to go, with Christ that day.

At any moment, Christ Jesus could come,
High in the clouds, to take His Bride home.
This should be considered v’ry carefully,
My friend, it might save you much agony.

CHRIST’S RETURN

So many try to guess, when Christ will come,
To take believers, to their new home.
They’ve never been right, they never will be,
Only God alone knows, when Christ we’ll see!

Jesus will come only at God’s command,
To take believers, to Heav’n’s blissful land!
We must be watching, we must live with care,
We don’t want Christ to catch us, unawares!

We know not when Christ will come; we cannot say,
We know not what God has in store each day!
We must walk by faith, and not by our sight,
Imitate Jesus, let Him guide day and night!

If Christ were to come in the clouds this day,
Would you be glad to see that wondrous display?
Or would you cringe in fear when He look’d at you?
Because you don’t live, as He wants you to?

Will you be asham’d when He comes in the clouds?
Or will you praise Him with that grateful crowd?
Your reaction then, will depend on this day,
We must watch for Christ, and the Lord obey!

ADDITIONAL EVENTS

Judgment Seat of Christ

2 Cor. 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. [KJV]

Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. [KJV]

1 Cor. 3:11-15 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. [12] Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; [13] Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. [14] If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. [15] If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. [KJV]

  • 14. The Judgment Seat of Christ is where Christ will judge ALL believers. Every single person must stand (alone) before the Almighty Judge. No one will be exempt! All secrets will be brought out in the open. Nothing will be hidden from His all-seeing eyes. Our destiny has been decided (Heaven), but we will be judged on how we conducted ourselves after we turned our lives over to Jesus. We will either receive rewards or we will suffer loss of the rewards we could have had. I believe this time of judgment will take place (probably in Heaven) while the Great Tribulation is taking place, although I donít think there is any Scripture that states this. This Judgment will prepare believers for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
  • Rev. 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. [KJV]
  • 15. The Marriage Supper of the Lamb is where Christ will meet with His Bride (the church, men and women). Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. [KJV] The wedding and marriage supper then takes place. This possibly happens just before Christ comes to Earth as King of kings and Lord of lords. Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; [KJV] Christís Second Coming, to Earth!
