Distinctions between Rapture and Second Coming

Dr. Grant C Richison



The Rapture is for the church only:

Jesus comes in the air

Jesus comes for the church

He rewards believers

Physical body becomes immortal

Christ as Bridegroom


Translated to Heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

Mystery (1 Corinthians 15:50f)

Second Coming

The Second Coming is a worldwide event

Jesus comes to the earth

Jesus comes with the church

He judges unbelievers

Environment changed

Christ as King and Judge


Taken away in judgment (Matthew 24:37f)

Known event (Zechariah 14:4)
