    ​A thief arrives in the night but his coming is not known in advance.  If the house owner is woken by a broken window, he will here it,
    We knew someone who caught a thief in the night and called the police, and held him for the police to arrive. The police did not arrive, and the following morning after the thief had escaped, they said they could not find the house in the dark as it was too remote, about 2 miles from a town.  
    But to get back to the subject.  The scripture says it is a shout.  A shout is a shout.  The word "shout" is used to emphasise that it will be heard by all, and you are being disingenuous to say that the shout of an angel will be heard by all.

    ​No, but that is the implication of what he said.

    ​So the shout is a whisper.  I don't think so.
    When the angel shouts, it will be heard by all.

    ​ Banks here charge businesses to count their cash.  I can't see why, because they have scales for weighing coins and machines for sorting notes that can count hundreds of notes in seconds.

    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:
     
    How can this be secret.  He will come as a thief to the unbeliever as it will be a surprise, but to the believer, we are expecting it and watching for it.  We should be anyway.

    Sorry Alan but i think that is a strange reply.  I would like you to shew where in these verses you find anything to say the events show a secret coming?

    2Sa 21:19  And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver’s beam.
    1Ch 20:5  And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver’s beam.  KJV
    In 2 Sam. the brother  is in italics shewing that it was not in the original text.

    ​You do read a lot that is not there the verses you mention.  Such as
     
    1 Thess 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
     
    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.Matt 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
    43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
    44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

    ​Yes I did that but they still charged quite a lot for the currency conversion.  They adjust the exchange rate ti=o take account of their commission.

    None of those verses suggest a secret rapture.
  14. Invicta added a post in a topic: I have a Bible question   

    They were also two candlesticks and two olive trees.  How does that fit in with them being two witnesses?

    ​I made a purchase of £300 from the USA a couple of months ago and paid by PayPal.  They charged quite a lot in commission.  I should have paid be my credit card who would not have charged me.  I had not used PayPal for overseas purchases before so I did not think of it.
