The gathering together of God's Elect coincides with the return of Jesus Christ. Matthew 24:29-31
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
There are three key points to note from the verses above.
Firstly, immediately after the tribulation there will be cataclysmic shaking of the powers of the heavens marking the return of Jesus Christ who will then appear on the clouds.
Secondly, the return of Jesus Christ coincides with the gathering together of Godi'd/s Elect.
Thirdly, there will be a great sound of a trumpet as God's angels are sent to gather together the Elect.
The parallel scripture in Mark 13:24-27, confirms that the Second Coming of Jesus Christ occurs after the Great Tribulation, and also shows that this is the time when God's Elect will be resurrected to meet the returning Christ in the air.
Godi'd/s Elect will rise in their redeemed new immortal youthful bodies, free from all sickness and disease as Psalm 103: 1-5 below confirms.
