Here's one I found that expounds on the theme of seen linking it to the seven Churches and the angels of those churches.
He makes some interesting conjectures in here concerning the timing and possible affects of a rapture in terms of how it will impact the church on
earth. He uses the story of Samson for it, noting how Samson had seven locks of hair and promptly lost his strength after those locks were shaved. He
likens the worldwide body of professed believers to Samson. When the seven angels of the church are withdrawn after the Holy Spirit (and those
indwelled by the Holy Spirit - rapture), the body of believers left will lose its strength and the great falling away or apostasy will occur without
the spiritual support.
There are some other interesting observations in there, too.
I also find it interesting that he contends that any rapture will have nothing to do with Jesus, but only with the withdrawal of the Holy Spirit from
the world. Those who have it will be withdrawn, too, and gathered in. If you want to use the wedding analogy, the bride is delivered to her husband,
he does not go get her.
