When is the rapture?

“The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels.” (Mtt 13)

The saints are not to be removed [raptured] until “the end of the age.” This is sufficiently proved by the parting words of our Lord: “Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the age.” The Lord could not have said that He would be with His servants “until the end of the age” if they were to be removed from the earth before “the end of the age.” And He has Himself defined “the end of the age” to be the period when He will send forth His angels to separate those who nominally profess His name [tares], from those who are in truth His people [wheat].
