What do you mean?
Well, I'm always a bit leery of labels because there are variants with each premil, amil, postmil and pre, mid, post trib as well as prewrath. While someone may define themselves under one label, they will often point out an exception in one area or another.
It seems easier for me to say how I do
see scripture regarding the "rapture" and what I disagree with than the other way around using terms that many don't seem to fit into precisely. So with that said, I simply do not see a rapture as a catching away to heaven as a God-ordained escape from wrath. I see a changing from mortal to immortal, perishable to imperishable....in other words (as Paul said in 1 Cor. 15 ) changed from a natural body to a spiritual body.
I think the link I posted provides my views on the words clouds, "up" heavens, air, etc. in 1 Thess. normally used as the basis for the rapture of believers to heaven during God's wrath on the earth.
As these 2 verses are primarily used to support a rapture, all I have been able to glean from them (without reading into the text) is that Jesus comes in the clouds, we meet Him, and are changed.
Since Rev. 21 records a new heaven and new earth descending and that's where God will tabernacle with mankind and this is our final abode, without scripture that supports leaving the earth for an unspecified time and returning, we need to re-examine the popular, current teaching of escape from the earth.
Hope that helps a little.
