I so do not understand people whom think there will be a rapture!
If you are a believer, as I am, I will simply say: "answer this then"
Jesus said, "Matt 24:29 - 31"
He specifically said, "after all these things have happened, I will gather my people"
So, no rapture will be until possibly 2015, which will be the end I believe!
I might be wrong, but Jesus can't be!
Thank you for posting this. This has been my own question for many years. Most of my friends are pre-trib rapture believers who think we're at the beginning of the tribulation. Matt 24 always trips me up when I start thinking they're right. But then, the point is also the not knowing, right? I've come to a "hope there's a rapture but have a Plan B" mindset. Oh me of little faith, haha.
Just to add my .02 worth, DarksDeception is correct - except for the date guess because not even Christ knows that (per His own words). A lot of people point to 1 Corinthians 15:49-55 as proof of a "rapture", but even this passage states that "For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." So the dead will be raised first, then anyone left alive will be transformed.

Mark 13:32"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
