The following passage by Sam Soleyn makes it appear that his position is not in agreement with the stated position of this page:
"It is when the Lord is actually coming with the clouds of heaven—this same Jesus, according to Acts: 1, that was taken up from us into heaven—it is when He is actually coming again, by the sounds of the trumpet and the announcement of the archangel—that’s the time when first the dead in Christ will rise and secondly, those who are still alive will be changed in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye. (Inserted – actual verse—“After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them ‘Men of Galilee,’ they said, ‘why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.’” – Acts 1:9-11) So when will be rapture occur? Not before a. The return of the Lord—He is literally coming with the clouds of heaven, and b. The resurrection of the dead. That is what this says."
The next paragraph says he does not believe in a split rapture, yet this would be revealing truth about the dispensation of grace that was reserved for Paul (Gal. 1:11&12)?
Daneil 2, 7,8,9,10,11,12 : Could somebody tell me the scripture were God says He stops the clock, or that there is a gap? Every teaching I have read on the rapture says there is this gap but never gives the scripture explaining this. The bible always interprets itself.

eleazar: "the clock of prophecy stopped" this phrase is from an article by J.C. O'Hair titled, THE MYSTIFYING MYSTERY. Prophecy's clock is stopped by God. I think that is what is meant when we talk about time being stopped.

eleazar: Daneil - Look up the article on bereanbiblesociety.org in order to get your answer. That's because clocks were not invented during the time the Bible was being written.
