Jesus is Coming, in the Rapture, As a Thief, but to Whom?

Jesus is not coming as a "thief" to those Christians who study the Bible and read His Word (I Thes. 5: 1 - 2, 4 - 5, 10, 23). Jesus told His followers that He was coming again (John 14: 1 - 6). (See also I Thes. 4: 13 - 18, 5: 1 - 2, 4 - 6, 7 - 10, 23.). His coming, in the Rapture, would not take them by surprise because they would be watching for His return. They will have read the Scriptures and understood them.

However, the saved people who do not read God's Word and study it will be taken by surprise. They will not be expecting Jesus' return. Therefore, when the Rapture happens, those saved people, who do not know about God's Word concerning the Rapture, will be unaware of His coming. He will come unexpectedly to them when the Rapture happens, even though they too will be taken up. They were not watching for His return. There are a lot of Christians who do not study God's Word, and pseudo (pretending) believers who do not know what is about to happen, namely the Rapture. The bad part of it is that many of them do not even care. The Rapture will come upon them as a thief, unannounced.
