Paul tells us not to let men deceive us concerning this issue. He further states that the “man of sin” – the lawless one – the Antichrist must first be revealed and second, take his seat in the holy place, proclaiming himself to be God. Even in your standard Dispensation eschatology, that’s generally understood to be a mid-Trib event, usually recognized as “the abomination of desolation.” So the best you could possibly hope for from Paul would be a mid-Trib Rapture. But as we’ve already seen, Yeshua clarifies the issue with repeated statements pointing toward the end of the Tribulation and the raising of the saints ON THE LAST DAY. And by the way, Yeshua also had begun His discussion with the disciples by giving the same warning concerning the Last Days:
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
They asked Him what the signs of His coming and the end of the world would be. Notice the first thing He said in answer to their question was that they take heed not to be deceived! He then proceeds to give them a bunch of signs, which would herald His return and the end of the world. Don’t you think that the most massive of all unmistakable signs He could possibly have given them would be the witnessing of millions of people flying up into the sky?? Even if you are a Dispensationalist and think the Olivet Discourse was directed only “to the Jews,” that is still a massively huge sign to leave out, don’t you think? Yeshua left the biggest and most unmistakable of all signs out, only mentioning His coming in the clouds as a concluding sign “After the the tribulation of those days…”
Getting back to the “on the last day” issue, we also have John confirming the timing of the rising of the saints:
