The coming of Christ for His Body, the Church of the Dispensation of Grace, is quite a different event, and belongs to quite a different Dispensation than the coming of Christ as the Son of man, when He will "come unto" the earth, to take unto Himself His great power, and reign.
The end for which the Body of Christ is waiting is not judgment or tribulation, but to be "received up in glory" (1 Tim. 3:16), to be "called on high" (Phil. 3:14), to be changed and have glorious bodies like our Saviour's own body of glory. The Body of Christ seat of government exists NOW in heaven, "from whence they look for the Saviour" (Phil. 3:19-21).
The coming of Christ for His Body is into the air, and not unto the earth; it is in Grace, and not in judgment; and it concerns those who are "in Christ".
