The heavens and earth are dissolved by the Lord's fire in judgment at his appearance, revealing?
First, His "appearance" speaks of His "presence" at His Return:
Matthew 24 King James Version (KJV)
1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
The word translated "coming" is parousia denotes an arrival and presence, meaning they come and...stay. In the Rapture...we leave.
Secondly, I am still awaiting your address of the fact that we see physical death for unbelievers at His Return...not everyone being burned up.
Third, you still haven't given a logical reason that people should nullify the Word of God as you do, and remove what actually takes place between His Return and the Great White Throne Judgment, both of which have an intervening thousand years.
Fourth, you argue that there is only one Resurrection when everyone knows that at the Rapture the entire Church is resurrected unto glorified bodies...
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 King James Version (KJV)
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.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
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.
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:
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.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
...but in the First Resurrection of Revelation 20 only those who have died are raised...
Revelation 20:4-5 King James Version (KJV)
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
...unbelievers have to wait one thousand years before being raised:
Do I think you will address these issues? No, because you have had pages to do so and yet you ignore these points and continue to teach the exact opposite of what Scripture states.
