Three Views of Rapture and Return

Three Views of Rapture and Return

Dispensational
Premillennialism

    The rapture of the church and
    the return of Jesus to earth
    occur at different times. They
    are separated by 7 years
    or more.

    • The return of Jesus to earth
    will occur some time after
    the rapture of the church.

    • Most dispensationalists
    place the rapture before the
    tribulation and the return at
    the end of the tribulation,
    immediately before
    the millennium.

    • The church will be caught up
    to meet Jesus
    (1 Thessalonians 4:13–18;
    Revelation 4:1–2); the
    church will return to earth
    after the tribulation as
    part of the Messiah’s royal
    retinue (Revelation 19:14).

Amillennialism and
Postmillennialism

    The rapture of the church and
    the return of Jesus to earth
    happen together. This event
    will occur at the end of
    the millennium.

    • The return of Jesus
    to earth will occur
    immediately after the
    rapture of the church.

    • The rapture will occur at
    the end of the millennium.

    • The church will be caught
    up to meet Jesus
    (1 Thessalonians 4:13–
    18; Revelation 19:7–9)
    and will then immediately
    return to earth as part of
    the Messiah’s
    royal retinue
    (Revelation 19:14).

Historical
Premillennialism

    to earth will occur
    immediately after the
    rapture of the church.

    up to meet Jesus
    (1 Thessalonians 4:13–

    the Messiah’s
    royal retinue
    (Revelation 19:14).
