... You may say, “Wait a minute, I’m getting a little mixed up. I thought the second coming of Christ was secret. I’ve heard it time and again spoken of as a secret rapture.” Well, dear friends, the second coming of Jesus is anything but secret. Over and over the Scriptures emphasize the fact that it will be noisy. Everybody will be aware of it. Matthew 24:31 says He will come with a great sound of a trumpet. Is there anything secret about a trumpet blowing? Not if my little boy is blowing it, I’ll tell you that. Psalm 50:3-5: “Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence . . .” In 1 Thessalonians 4:16 we read that He’ll come with a shout. Anything secret about that, friends? “With the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God.” Titus 2:13 speaks of the glorious appearing of our Lord. He’ll be there in person and you’ll see him —just the opposite of secret. Let me read another text, Matthew 24:27: “As the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west! so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Friends, listen, the secret rapture is not in the Bible at all. There’s nothing secret about His second coming ...the curtain is about to come down and Jesus Christ is going to appear very, very soon in this world.
