Why did this video stop with this note: "This video file cannot be played. (Error Code: 224003)" ?
Whenever the 2nd advent takes place it will have to be "at the last day."

In John 6, Amplified Bible, Classic Edition, Jesus Himself says--

39 And this is the will of Him Who sent Me, that I should not lose *any of all* that He has given Me, but that I should give new life and raise [them *all] up at the last day.*

40 For this is My Father’s will and His purpose, that *everyone* who sees the Son and believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Him should have eternal life, and I will raise *him up [from the dead] at the last day.*
[* * added for emphasis.]

In Matthew 13 the Lord said that the wheat & tares grow together until the harvest. Later He explains that the harvest is the end & culmination of the age. He repeated that thought further down with the parable of the dragnet.

There is NO direct straight up Bible basis for a two part/stage 2nd advent of Messiah. In Corinthians Paul said we will ALL be raised at the last trump. So we see there is no 'left behind'.

The only written definitions of 'escape' is 1 Corinthians 10:13. Again from the Amplified, Classic copied & paste from BibleGateWay,


13 For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads] has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man [that is, no temptation or trial has come to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]. But God is faithful [to His Word and to His compassionate nature], and He [can be trusted] not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will [always] also provide the way out (the means of escape to a landing place), that you may be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.

Note the phrase, "... bear up under it patiently." This verse tells us that Father will bring us through whatever we face. Look up the verses that tell us about enduring; "endures to the end ", "he who endures to the end will be saved", "... but he who patiently perseveres and endures to the end will be saved", "By your steadfastness and patient endurance you shall win the true life of your souls.","... knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.", "And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character..." And on I could go.

God is able to keep us no matter what. Even if we must choose to adhere to this verse in the face of death--

Revelation 12:11
And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing]."
