2 Thessalonians 2:1 - 4
NASB - 1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him. 2 That you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.

As a believer I obviously looked into and researched this subject in God's Word, and came to realize that most if not all believers have their own perspective in regards to "The Rapture" which falls into one of the three perspectives previously mentioned. I've also realized that it's a very controversial subject that usually leads to an argument between believers, and the conclusion that I've come to, is that even if we knew exactly when we're going to be raptured, how is that going to help us reach lost souls for Jesus now?
According to what I've read in the Bible, God's plan is to restore this earth to its original beauty after HE removes all evil rudiments, all the non-believers thus HIS followers will enjoy eternal life with HIM in HIS gloriously restored creation as stated in HIS prayer of 'HIS will be done on earth as it is in Heaven' those that survive to the end of the restoration, the same shall be saved as stated in Matthew. Don't believe we're going anywhere, rather HE is returning for this very accomplishment as described! The 'rapture' theory is a man-made theory, not fact!
