Yes, it is two seperate days/events. And hopefully the Day of Christ is just around the corner.

The Bible says there isn't because if the events were seperate then a person can know the second coming:

.. Day of Christ = Rapture
+ whatever formula that is popular at the time
= Day of the Lord = Second Coming)

I know we disagree, but we do await for his coming

Yes we do disagree about the Rapture, but that's ok.....each event will be awe filled and spectacular no matter when they happen!!

Waited for you to do what...?

Respond to His drawing and believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Christ is Lord.

In other words, He waited for me to be saved. He's waiting for you too.....so far......

I honestly believe He being the obedient Son that He is, He's ready to move at His Father's will..............yet, we are given day, after day, after day, yes, waiting for one more and one more and yet that one more to come to Him!!

YES, to respond to His drawing, the tugging, the pull on their hearts!! Bless your heart Alpha8207. Isn't He a patient God? There are some that believe He'll wait forever........I ask: How long is long enough for you people?

The scriptures are very clear on articulating that the "Second Coming" was to occur at some point (i.e. "as a thief in the night") during the 1st century CE, while some of the Apostles were still alive. This was a promise attributed towards the very words of Jesus.

Apparently it didn't happen; and that's when the Church declared itself the sole authority to (re-)interpret the scriptures - and promptly did.

what exactly are the signs or things that need to take place?
economy crashes, haiti, etc.
are we in the last days?

Alpha8207, I believe, replied:
There is nothing left that 'has' to occur. The only delay in Christ's return now is His mercy and grace for those still at enmity with God.

Praise God for His long-suffering for the lost.

Manay,
I believe we now know the "season", i.e., the very month of the Feast of Tabernacles!
The observable pre-sign is a "bloody-red full moon", a lunar eclipse on the 15th of Tishri!!
Alpha, the "delay" cannot end until the last martyr is killed "in the days of the 7th Trumpet"!!!

No one knows the Day Christ appears as it could occur on Tishri 15 or Tishri 16 for the Jews!
They don't observe their Havdalah Ceremony until the Twilight Hour at the start of Tishri 16!!
All saints are "gathered together above" on the Lastday, but may come with Him on Sunday!!!
