    Then you suggest two separate rapture incidents?

    No, there is only one and it happens after the GT is over, at the second coming.

    That's the same event mentioned twice. It is not two different events.

    I addressed it a couple pages ago but I guess I wasn't clear enough.

    I see the rapture being described In Matthew 24-25 as angels gathering the elect, in the act of entering the Ark, Lot being taken by an angel to a safe place, the one taken, the wise virgins being taken by the bridegroom etc. It's one event just described/mentioned multiple times.

    Left.

    Notice that it doesn't matter how a person feels because almost every Christian in the West will be taken [killed,] just like everybody else in the West.

    Why?

    Because most would rather die than lift a finger to save themselves - as in be prepared to survive nuclear wars.

    What does Jesus mean when he says, he comes like a thief in the night? Well, we all know that thieves are loving and gentle, and just want to take you up to heaven, right? Or do they come suddenly to kill you? Is Jesus causing unthinkable nuclear wars to happen?

    The knowledge in the Bible can save people from this fate. People that bury this knowledge [talents] just get to die when the nukes come. Or they get fooled by the Islamic prophet whose name is Jesus.

    The false prophet is Islamic. The name of the false prophet is Jesus. He's a fake Jesus but half the Christians don't know it. It's all there in Islamic prophecy. Jesus comes back as a Muslim and converts the world to Islam. He's with the Islamic Mahdi which Christians would recognize as the Antichrist.

    Does Jesus cause nuclear wars?

    When he says that he will come back a a thief in the night then he's talking about a nuclear war that he will bring on suddenly. We would recognize this as a Day of the Lord event where nations are obliterated. Google "Day of the Lord" to understand that this is an obliteration event.

    Any time Jesus says he is coming back, he's not really coming back. He's obliterating somebody. Or a false prophet. Only when he's coming out of the sky is he coming back. The parables about a returning master where bad things happen to those not paying attention refer to sudden wars that will come and take them away [in death]. Study the Bible and get clues about how to avoid these wars.

    Nebuchadnezzar's statue is broken by a stone that hit the statue's feet. However, conceptually that doesn't work because the parts of the statue arise at different times. What works are a serious of stones that smash each part of the statue. In other words, God causes the major kingdoms to fall through smashing or some kind of war.
