πŸ‘‘ Two In The Field And Two At The Mill

β€œThen shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour you Lord doth come” (Matt. 24:40-42).

How often the above passage has been interpreted to apply to our Lord’s coming for the members of His Body! At the rapture of the Church, it is said, two will be working in the field, when one will be taken to heaven and the other left to go through the day of God’s wrath, and so also with two women who may be grinding side by side at the mill: one will be caught up to be with the Lord and the other left behind.

But actually this passageΒ cannotΒ have anything to do with the rapture of the Body to be with Christ.

First, the truth of our Lord’s coming for the members of His Body was a secret first revealed by the glorified Lord through Paul (I Cor. 15:51-58; I Thes. 4:15-18).

But from Matthew 24 itself it is still more evident that the passageΒ cannotΒ refer to the rapture.

True, the passage says: β€œThe one shall be taken, and the other left”, butΒ where and howΒ will the one be taken, and what will be the lot of the one who is left behind?

From the verses immediately preceding, it is evident that the coming of ChristΒ to earthΒ to judge and reign is in view. This coming is likened to what happened in the days of Noah. The people ate and drank, married and gave away again in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, β€œand knew not untilΒ the flood came and took them all away”. These people were not β€œtaken away” to glory; they were β€œtaken away” in judgment.

Since verses 40 and 41 are a continuation of this illustration, it is evident that the two β€œtaken away” are taken awayΒ in judgmentΒ at our Lord’s return to reign, while the two who are β€œleft” are left to enter into His millennial reign. This interpretation alone is consistent with the whole context in which we find this passage.

How much confusion would be avoided if the truth of the rapture of the Body to be with Christ were recognized to be what it is: a divine secret first revealed to Paul concerningΒ the Church of this present dispensation, the Body of Christ. source
