Verse of the Day (May 31, 2020) #BMSeminary – Happy Lord’s Day! The order of events at the time of Christ’s coming is clearly given: (1) the Lord will descend with a shout, accompanied by the voice of the archangel, and the trump of God (cf. 1 Cor. 15:52); (2) the dead in Christ will be resurrected; and (3) then those remaining will be caught up with them in the clouds. Dead in Christ is a technical expression for believers of the church age. Caught up (Gr. harpazō, “to seize,” “snatch”): The Latin word for carry off is raptus, from which we get rapture. The doctrine of the Rapture of the church is given its clearest expression in this verse, although it can also be seen in John 14:1–3; 1 Cor. 15:51, 52. [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
