This passage, coming as it does after the great tribulation event and in conjunction with Jesus' return, leaves no doubt that the Rapture is Post Tribulational. It is a perfect description of Paul's account of this event. Luke's account reads, ''and (He) will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven.' What better way to describe the living and deceased Believers rising together to meet the LORD in the air. It will be a blessed day ... guaranteed!
