    But of the times and the seasons

    1Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons

    Is Paul saying that the gathering of the saints, will be a times and a seasons?

    1Th 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
    1Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
    1Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
    1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
    1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
    1Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    1Th 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

    1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
    1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
    1Th 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
    1Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
    1Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
    1Th 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
    1Th 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
    1Th 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
    1Th 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
    1Th 5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

    What he is saying that the rapture is tied together with the day of the Lord.

    But of the times and seasons (of the rapture, that is the context), you know that the day of the Lord will come as a thief.

    The rapture will happen on the same day that the dotl begins....immediately prior to it.

    This is KEY to understanding the timing of the rapture.

    Know we just need to understand when the dotl begins in relation to other events.
    Well, the cosmic signs will be given prior to it (Joel 2:31) and it will not come until after the abomination of desolation (2 thess 2:3).
    In Matt. 24, the cosmic signs occur after the aod, after the great tribulation is cut short, so we know then that the rapture will take place during the 2nd half of the 70th week.
