One of the most popular verses used to speak about the rapture is found in Matthew 24 and speaks about who will be left behind when Christ returns that is to say one person being taken while another is left behind. This is actually, where the left behind book theory got its name.
However, we need to look at the context of these verses to find out who is being taken and who is being left behind.
“37: But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39: And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40: Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41: Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42: Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” – Matthew 24: 37 – 42
Jesus said his return would be like the days of Noah, he explains the flood took everyone outside of the ark away, which means the wicked would be taken away when Messiah returns. This is the exact opposite of what most people teach about the rapture.
Rapture preachers tell us the Godly believers would be taken away and the wicked sinners would be left behind. I do not know about you but I do not want to be like those who would be taken away like in the days of Noah.
Jesus is talking about the judgement and the destruction of the wicked and His return.
This is what the book of Revelation tells us that when Jesus returns the world will tremble in fear of His wrath.
“15: And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16: And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” – Revelation 6: 15 – 17
Remember the parable of the wheat and the tares. The owner instructed the servants to let the wheat and tares to grow together until the harvest and notice, which is gathered first.
“30: Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” – Matthew 13:30
The tares are gathered first not the wheat. The tares are destroyed and the wheat is gathered into the barn. This is consistent with what Jesus said about the days of Noah. The wicked are taken away and the righteous are left behind.
The bible consistently describes the wicked as the one who would be taken away when Christ returns because the Godly will remain to join Jesus in His Kingdom where we will live with Him for a thousand years.
“4: And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5: But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6: Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” – Revelation 20: 4 – 6
