THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST, IS NOT THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH: In the 24th chapter of Matthew, the apostles come together to ask Jesus about His return, which we know to be the Day of the Lord, and the end of the world. Jesus, as it turns out, has plenty to say on this subject and uses no parables. He tells them plainly what will happen in the time of the end. Many Christians, who love to apply the entire New Testament to the Church alone, read this chapter and try to make this about the Rapture of the Church. But, that will not work, Matthew 24 is not about the Church, which didn’t even exist on the day that they asked Jesus these questions.
