The pre-Trib Rapture is the event in which Christ returns to the earth but stays in the air and on a cloud. He will return to remove all His saints/overcomers from the earth. The Second Coming (the Second Advent) is the event in which Christ returns to the earth (with the clouds – with His Host of raptured saints/the armies of Heaven). He will return to bring the Tribulation Period to an end by defeating the Antichrist and his evil world empire in the Battle of Armageddon.
Maranatha . . . . the Lord is coming! Now to those believers in Christ who live their lives in “light” of the knowledge that He can come at any moment, Maranatha reminds these believers that while they must remain prepared they also must keep their spiritual eyes on the eternal Holy Spirit’s supernatural activities—they must keep looking for the in the air and on a cloud Jesus Christ who will be coming for His true Bride!
Let’s not flirt with death. Let’s not be caught off guard, frolicking without a care until the day that we are lulled into a false sense of freedom that causes us to choose to behave in ways that would be detrimental to our physical and spiritual existence.
Never has there ever been a time when the Kingdom of God’s appearance has been so near than it is now! These are the prophesied end-times. Who will be ready to meet the Lord?
