A. The bodily, personal, pre-tribulation, pre-millennial return of Christ for His Church and that only church age believers are included in the following:

1) The resurrection of the righteous dead. (I Thessalonians 4:16; I Corinthians 15:52)
2) Catching away of all righteous, both dead and living. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:52-54; John 14:1-3)
3) The Judgment Seat (Bema Seat) for believers in Heaven. (Romans 14:10; I Corinthians 3:13-15; II Corinthians 5:9,10)
4) The Marriage Supper of the Lamb. (Revelation 19:7-10)

B. The Tribulation Period on earth (simultaneous to the Judgment Seat and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven. (Matthew 24:4-31; Mark 13:14-23)

C. The return of Christ, visibly and bodily with His Church, to close the Tribulation Period on earth (The Revelation of Christ). (Zechariah 12:9,10; 14:3-5; Matthew 24:29-31; Mark 13:14-27; Acts 1:11; Hebrews 9:28; Revelation 1:7; 19:11-16)

D. The Millennial Reign of Christ on earth which will last for 1,000 years. (Revelation 20:3)
