50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-- 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1 Corinthians 15 is a chapter which speaks about resurrection. This chapter says nothing about a rapture. In verses 50-53 quoted above, Apostle Paul confirms that true believers, both those who are dead and those who are alive, will be changed and raised incorruptible at the last trumpet. When will the last trumpet sound? As we have already shown by quoting Matthew 24:29-31, there will be a sound of trumpet when the Elect will be gathered together at Christ'í¿1/2s return, immediately after the tribulation.
As we have seen, the Bible clearly speaks about a Post-Tribulation Resurrection, which is the First Resurrection, and it will coincide with the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Why use an unbiblical term such as 'rapture' when the Bible only speaks about resurrection?
