Dr. Gonzalez explains that there is a great deal of misunderstanding as it relates to the two stages of Christ’s second coming. As stated in the messages in which he discussed the “signs of the times,” the signs are not signs that will signal the rapture of the church, His return for the saints, but rather His ultimate return with the saints. Much of the misunderstanding comes from confusing these two events.


Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are still alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.


In the next few messages, Dr. Gonzalez will be discussing the doctrine of the rapture of the church, an event that will occur prior to the start of the Tribulation period.
