The History of the Pre-trib Rapture

15 Differences Between the Rapture and the Second Coming

[Rapture] Jesus coming for His Church/Bride to take up to Heaven, before Tribulation (Luke 21:36; John 14:1-3; 1Thess 1:10, 4:14-17, 5:9; Rev 3:10)
[Second Coming] Jesus coming with His Church/Bride down from Heaven, after Tribulation (Zech 14:5; Col 3:4; Rev 19:7-8,14, 21:9-10; Matt 24:29-31; Jud 1:14,15; 1Thess 3:13)

[Rapture] Church is caught up with Him in the air, in the clouds; He appears to Believers only (1Thess 4:13-18; Mat 5:8; John 11:40; Heb 9:28)
[Second Coming] Jesus' feet touch the earth, and He brings war, then peace; Every eye will see Him, including unbelievers (Zech 14:4; Rev 19:11-21; Rev 1:7, Zech 12:10, Mat 24:30 Luke 3:6 John 19:37)

[Rapture] Christians taken first, unbelievers are left behind a shut door (Mat 25:1-13; Rev 3:8-10; Rev 4:1, 1Thess 4:13-18)
[Second Coming] Wicked are taken first, the righteous (Tribulation saints) are left to populate the Millennium (Mat 13:28-30)

[Rapture] Purpose: To present the Church to Himself and to the Father in Heaven (2 Cor 11:2; Rev 19:6-9)
[Second Coming] Purpose: To execute judgment on earth and set up His Kingdom on Earth (Zech 14:3-4; Jud 1:14-15; Rev 19:11-21)

[Rapture] Purpose: to cast Satan out of heaven down to the earth, which will reveal Satan for the Tribulation as the man of sin (Rev 12; 2Thess 2)
[Second Coming] Purpose: to cast Satan to the bottomless pit, to bind Satan after the Tribulation (Rev 20:1-7)

[Rapture] Happens in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, no war, globally (1Cor 15:52)
[Second Coming] Slow coming, at war, to specific locations, from Edom, to Bozrah, to Meggido or Armageddon, to Jerusalem (Isa 63:1-3, Rev 16:16, Zech 12:9-10)

[Rapture] Christians are changed, and get spirit bodies, go to heaven and do not marry, and become immortal (Mat 22:30; 1Cor 15:52; 1John 3:2)
[Second Coming] People populate the earth during the Millennium, some people still die, not being changed to immortality as at the rapture (Isa 65:20)

[Rapture] Jesus descends with a shout (for resurrection) and trumpet noise (1Thess 4:16)
[Second Coming] No shout mentioned (Rev 19:11-21)

[Rapture] A resurrection takes place of all saints to immortality, to rule as kings and priests in Heaven over Earth (1Cor 15:51-54; 1Thess 4:13-18)
[Second Coming] Resurrection of the tribulation saints to immortality who worship day and night in the temple of God (Rev 7:15, Rev 20:4-6)

[Rapture] Occurs as a thief in the night, at the 'no man knows the day or hour' festival of the Feast of Trumpets (Mat 24:43; 1Thess 5:4-6; Rev 3:3)
[Second Coming] Occurs at end of 7 years of Tribulation; exact day predicted; 3.5 years or 1260 days after the abomination of desolation (Dan 9:24-27, 12:11-12; Rev 11:2, 12:6,14, 13:5)

[Rapture] Is likened to the abduction of the bride during the Jewish Wedding, and the union of the bride and groom, which occurs at the start of the 7 day bridal week (Gen 29:22-28, Judges 14:1-18)
[Second Coming] Is likened to the marriage feast, which occurs after the 7 day bridal week, returning from the wedding (Luke 12:36; Rev 19)

[Rapture] The dead in Christ rise and together with then living will be changed into their new bodies and leave Earth with Jesus (1Thess 4:14-16)
[Second Coming] Christians return with Jesus in already resurrected bodies riding on white horses (Rev 19:11-21)

[Rapture] Jesus returns as a savior from wrath (Luke 21:36; Rom 5:9; 1Thess 1:10, 5:9; Rev 3:10)
[Second Coming] Jesus returns on a white horse, full of wrath (Rev 19:11)

[Rapture] For the Church only (those in Christ) 1Thess 4:14-17
[Second Coming] For redeemed Israel & Gentiles Mat 25:31-46; Rom 11:25-27

[Rapture] A message of hope and comfort; Like the days of Noah and Lot, which show deliverance and salvation from judgment. (1Thess 4:18; Titus 2:13; 1John 3:3; 2 Peter 2:7-9, Mat 24:37-44)
[Second Coming] A message of judgment and woe;Like the plagues of Egypt, many of which are mirrored in Revelation, pouring out his Wrath, and He comes after the judgements (Joel 3:12-16; Amos 5:18; Mal 4:5; Rev 19:11-21)
