Do you know the Bible never says the word "rapture"? Uh...so what? There is still the concept of a rapture that is written about. The word rapture comes from Latin that means to seize and carry off. There is a similar word to that in the Bible that comes from Greek called "harpazo" and it means the same thing. It is actually used 14 times in the New Testament. Most of the time it means people take things by force. But in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 we see a different use of the word.
- Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord
The phrase "will be caught up" is the word harpazo, or rapture. So, if someone says that there is no rapture then they do not understand this verse.
Who gets raptured? The Church.
When will it happen? After the time of the Gentiles is over.
The rapture is not the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. That happens later. The rapture is for the Church to be rescued from the wrath of God's.
Revelation also shows that in the first three chapters the Church is mentioned.
