1 Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to him, we ask you
The coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as mentioned above is not the 2nd coming, but the rapture which is before the 2nd coming. Read 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18…where it says that He comes and snatches us by sending His angels to bring us to where He is at, in the clouds.
The phrase “our gathering” clearly states our “snatching away.”
For further study in detail on the topic of the rapture, please read…The Rapture, Pre-Trib or Post-Trib?
Feel free to leave me a question regarding the topic.
