The Rapture is AFTER THE TRIBULATION.
kjfriend Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Matthew 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
kjfriend http://www.faithfulwordbaptist.org/tribulation.pdf <<< PDF to help show you that the Rapture is after the tribulation using scripture. There is a tribulation and then there is a time of wrath....the rapture occurs after the tribulation. The wrath is for unbelievers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiVKbjtvJcY&feature=plcp
kjfriend 1 Thessalonians 4:16 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:
1 Thessalonians 4:17 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.
1 Thessalonians 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Docflay I disagree, that the Tribulation will precede the Rapture; for your first post, and or scripture reference may have been after the rapture, because it refers to gathering the elected from the four winds, and from one end of heaven to the other.
kjfriend please see the bible verses and the pdf I posted.
