The King James Bible verses dealing with "The Rapture" call for the immediate "translation" (Gen. 5:24;Heb. 11:5) of millions of saved beings upward through outer space at mega-light speed, with their transformed bodies of both dead people (John 11:25) and living people (John 11:26) according to Jesus Christ, and the Apostle Paul (1 Thes. 4:14-17; 1 Cor. 15:52-54).
The KJV Bible teaches that this Rapture will occur before the 7 year tribulation, as Enoch got out of the wrath to come (Mal. 4:1-4;Matt. 3:7; 1 Thess. 5:9) back in the days of Noah BEFORE the great flood (1Peter 3:20). Also, Lot got out of Sodom (Luke 17:28 "in the days of Lot") BEFORE the fire came down (Mal. 4:1-4; Matt. 3:7-10; Matt. 13:40-42; 2 Thes. 1:7-8). In likeness, the living and dead saints will be "caught up" before the 7 year tribulation. Enoch was "caught up" (Gen. 5:24), Elijah was "caught up" (2 Kings 2:11), Paul was "caught up" (2 Cor. 12:1-4), John was "caught up" (Rev. 4:1-2), Jesus Christ was "caught up" (Acts 1:9), and the dead and living saints are "caught up to the third heaven" (2 Cor.12:1-4).
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."
21 "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne."
22 "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
1 COR 15:51
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In 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. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
II THES 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
1 THES 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For 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: 17 Then 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. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
We are to look for our Lord to come back, not for the great tribulation ("the time of Jacob's trouble" Jeremiah 30:7) or the mark of the beast. We are to look forward to Jesus calling us up home saying "Come up hither" (Rev. 4:1-2) which is The Rapture, or that "blessed hope" (Titus 2:13) and it is one of the
"Seven Mysteries" found in the KJV Bible. This Rapture is also a purifying hope (1 John 3:1-3), and we are to "comfort one another with these words" (1 Thess. 4:18). "Even so, come Lord Jesus" (Rev. 22:20). Watch the Rapture videos above for advanced revelations from the Authorized King James Bible taught by Dr Peter S. Ruckman
