What day are you referring to Rev. Blair? From my studies I see one event where Jesus comes in the air, the dead are raised and the living Christians are swept up to meet them in the air and He takes us to Heaven to be with Him. (the Rapture) The other event is where Jesus comes to Earth and sets foot on the Mount of Olives. (the Second Coming) The meanings in the Bible are revealed to us as time passes. There are things we didn't know until the last 100 years. There will be things revealed in the future that we do not know now. The church is Jesus' bride. Jesus will not allow His bride to live through the horrific tribulation. Rev 3:10 indicates church is kept from (ek) the hour of temptation. Ek means “out of” or “evacuation”. Would have used “dia” if the meaning is “through.” As you see in the Greek language the word "from" has two different words with totally different meanings. Same in 1 Thess 1:10 to deliver from the wrath to come. Also, 1 Thess 5:9 says we are not appointed to wrath. The rapture clearly happens before the tribulation and the second coming. I haven't written a book, but I can clearly tell the difference when the Bible speaks of the events the Church will face and of the events the Jews will face as time progresses. I believe in dispensational interpretation, based on 2 Tim 2:15, where it says that dividing the word has to do with dividing into dispensations. The 70 weeks of Dan 9:24 is a Jewish dispensation, involving Daniel’s people and the holy city, so the church could not be involved in the 70th week, and must have been raptured prior to it. I believe it totally, but I also know the day nor the hour can not be predicted by men, only God Himself knows that information.
