John Edwards's comment on 2014-11-04 08:50:31:

It seems that even though many hold these verses to be the or a cornerstone for the rapture, dialogue with other Bible scholars do not bring up the "rapture " in their discourse. Adam Clark 1825 states "The meaning seems to be, that so general should these calamities be, that no two persons ... should both be able to effect their escape and that captivity and the sword should have a complete triumph over this unhappy people. " No where in Clarks commentary does he say, "This is the lift off of the saints before Christs ' second coming. " So what are we to know, is there a "rapture " or is there not? I am still looking.

Matthew 24 40 Seems to be the way life is, it refers tolife and death we are here one day and gone the next.

Two shall be in the field one has persevered through the times and ready to go to heaven as Enoch and other patriarchs while the other remains behind to face the trying times . However, it is said some will still be stubborn to repent from their wicked ways right up until the second coming of the the one left behind is being given a second chance at repenting and those times l do not wish to live in, l pray and strive to be taken in the Rapture


Thomas Meruti's comment on 2014-01-13 01:43:48:

This scripture refers to rapture, which has been prophecied in the book of Revelation. This is not figurative, but literal that "two shall be in the field, the other shall be taken, the other left". It will help if this scripture is read in line with the mystery that Paul talks about " ..we shal l not all sleep, but in the twinkling of an eye we shall be changed..." Paul further says that those who slept in the Lord will be raised first and then we who are in Christ will join them in the sky/cloud. Both this scriptures refers to rapture that will take place when Christ the Lord returns.

When it is stated that "Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left", That says to me that One human is in the field... His Spirit or Soul is taken (Inner Man) and his Body (Outer Man) is left behind.

Praise God!! I understand now. There's no secret rapture.


SL's comment on 2013-11-03 14:30:00:

The previous verse 39 says that all those not with Noah in the arc were TAKEN away by the flood. Doesn't it follow then that in this verse 40 that those TAKEN were judged and those left were saved {because they were in Christ}. Also in Psalm91 we see in verses 7&8 that the believer will not be touched but look on and see the punishment of the wicked.

Sounds like a secret rapture if the reader will conclude on this one text alone. But one cannot build a Bible doctrine in one verse alone. It should go in harmony with the whole context and subject of Christ's second coming. A little here a little there and precept upon precept.
