Is this truly the Rapture?

Who was ๐’•๐’‚๐’Œ๐’†๐’ ๐’‚๐’˜๐’‚๐’š?

What does it mean to be taken away?

Do we really believe in what the Lord said?
Are we reading our meaning into what he said?

Is something wrong with our understanding of this page?

Look at it again;

๐‘ด๐’‚๐’•๐’• 24:39 (๐‘ฌ๐‘บ๐‘ฝ) and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

๐‘ด๐’‚๐’•๐’‰.24:39 (๐‘ฎ๐‘ต๐‘ป) yet they did not realize what was happening until the flood came and swept them all away. That is how it will be when the Son of Man comes.

With this simple comparison, its evident that Jesus wasnโ€™t talking about ๐‘๐š๐ฉ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ข๐ง๐  a people, but rather that those who never heed the warnings of Noah were killed by the flood and that is what is meant be taken away. ๐ˆ๐ญ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฐ๐ข๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ญ๐š๐ค๐ž๐ง ๐š๐ฐ๐š๐ฒ (๐ค๐ข๐ฅ๐ฅ๐ž๐) ๐ง๐จ๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ๐ž๐จ๐ฎ๐ฌ.

Apostle Peter alluding to the same scenario, said;
2 Pet.3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly menโ€.

This was before AD 70. As 2nd Peter was written between AD 62-64. So here Peter was saying like what Mathew and Luke said, that ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’–๐’๐’ˆ๐’๐’…๐’๐’š ๐’Ž๐’†๐’, ๐’•๐’‰๐’๐’”๐’† ๐’˜๐’‰๐’ ๐’˜๐’‰๐’ ๐’‚๐’“๐’† ๐’๐’๐’• ๐’„๐’๐’๐’„๐’†๐’“๐’๐’†๐’… ๐’‚๐’ƒ๐’๐’–๐’• ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’‘๐’“๐’๐’„๐’๐’‚๐’Š๐’Ž๐’‚๐’•๐’Š๐’๐’ ๐’•๐’‰๐’‚๐’• ๐’˜๐’‚๐’” ๐’ˆ๐’๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐’‡๐’๐’“๐’•๐’‰ ๐’˜๐’‰๐’†๐’“๐’† ๐’…๐’†๐’”๐’•๐’“๐’๐’š๐’†๐’… , ๐’‹๐’–๐’…๐’ˆ๐’†๐’… ๐’Œ๐’Š๐’๐’๐’†๐’… ๐’ƒ๐’š ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐’‡๐’๐’๐’๐’… ๐’•๐’‰๐’†๐’ ๐’‚๐’๐’… ๐’๐’๐’˜ ๐’ƒ๐’š ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐‘น๐’๐’Ž๐’‚๐’ ๐‘บ๐’๐’๐’…๐’Š๐’†๐’“๐’” who came to Jerusalem under General Titus.
