Coming Upon Coming

When Christ comes,
he comes first for his Church
at the Rapture of his Church,
those he has given faith
to trust him to be righteous for us
forever in our stead for salvation,
which is the real Biblical Gospel,
and only those taken will see him.
Because Christ takes his Spirit
with his Church,
the Spirit no longer holds back
the mystery of iniquity.
Therefore in the nations,
the false Christs rise up,
with antichrist eventually
prevailing over the others.
Between the coming of Christ at the Rapture
and his coming for the vast global harvest
from his publishing the Gospel worldwide,
is an entire generation of several decades.
The coming of Christ in great glory
in the skies for his global harvest,
in which he gathers the tares out,
and gathers up his saints to himself,
will be seen by all the world.
But the coming of Christ down to earth
will be after the years
of the sounding of the seven trumpets,
when Christ comes down to the mount of Olives
to deliver Jerusalem from the armies
of the world that gathered at Armageddon,
and to remove antichrist from the earth.
For therein [the Gospel of Christ]
is the righteousness of God revealed
from faith to faith: as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.
(Romans 1:17 KJV)
Therefore be ye also ready:
for in such an hour as ye think not
the Son of man cometh.
Watch ye therefore, and pray always,
that ye may be accounted worthy
to escape all these things
that shall come to pass,
and to stand before the Son of man.
Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught [Greek, harpazo] 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 4:17)
And she brought forth a man child,
who was to rule all nations
with a rod of iron:
and her child was caught [Greek, harpazo] up
unto God, and to his throne.
Because thou hast kept
the word of my patience,
I also will keep thee
from the hour of temptation,
which shall come upon all the world,
to try them that dwell upon the earth.
For as a snare shall it come
on all them that dwell
on the face of the whole earth.
For the mystery of iniquity
doth already work:
only he who now letteth [keeps back]
will let [keep back],
until he be taken out of the way.
(2 Thessalonians 2:7)
And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ;
and shall deceive many.
And then shall that
wicked be revealed,
whom the Lord shall consume
with the spirit of his mouth,
and shall destroy
with the brightness his coming:
(2 Thessalonians 2:8)
Verily I say unto you,
This generation shall not pass,
till all these things be fulfilled.
And this gospel of the kingdom
shall be preached in all the world
for a witness unto all nations;
and then shall the end come.
And then shall they see
the Son of man coming in a cloud
with power and great glory.
Even thus shall it be
in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
And to you who are troubled
rest with us,
when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed
from heaven with his mighty angels,
(2 Thessalonians 1:7)
And the seven angels
which had the seven trumpets
prepared themselves to sound.
And I saw the beast,
and the kings of the earth,
and their armies,
gathered together to make war
against him that sat on the horse,
and against his army.
