Simple answer:What is your basis for believing in a pre-trib rapture, if not from the scriptures.
This verse here teaches us that the Rapture will coincide with the Resurrection, whereby both those who are Resurrected from the dead, and those who are Raptured will be caught up together, to be with the Lord in the air.
Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:17
This will occur at His coming.
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
The lawless one, the man of sin, the false christ, aka; the antichrist will be destroyed at His coming.
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 2 Thessalonians 2:8
I interpret Scriptures different then you!!
