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.
Our Lord wants us to be more than just believers who qualify for God’s Fire Insurance Policy. For sure, Christ wants to be more to us—who are His Body—than just someone who saves us from the end-time Wrath of God, as well as saves us from the Lake of Fire’s eternal punishment.
Just like the first-century disciples/believers had to receive the Holy Spirit’s sanctifying power before they could be mighty witnesses for Christ Jesus—before they could begin their mission of finishing what He had begun, which is the Great Commission (cf. Acts 1:8; see also Matthew 28:16-20)—we today also must receive the Lord’s prayed for sanctification. This Holy Spirit-assigned process is the necessary infilling (Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues) that will guarantee we eventually will become Christlike and then, like Him, will be raptured off of this Earth.
The only way anybody who is still alive will be able to be delivered from the wrath of God that is to come upon this Earth is for a divine intervention to take place. That divine intervention for the Body of Christ is the Rapture.
Though no person who is of “sound” mind would want to experience any of the Daniel’s 70th Week’s horrors, the truth is that too many vacillating believers and way too many committed unbelievers will be left behind to live or die during this prophesied seven-year Tribulation. That’s why those individuals who need to do so should get their own “house” in order, NOW, because Daniel’s 70th Week, which also includes the Time of Jacob’s Trouble and time when the Battle of Armageddon will happen, is just around the corner!
