WILL THE RAPTURE HAPPEN BEFORE OR AFTER THE ANTICHRIST?
1 Thess. 4:16-18For 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: 17Then 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. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Cor. 15:52-53In 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. 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality.
Matt. 24:27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
