If we are alive at the time of the Rapture, we shall be caught up with the resurrected dead. The word “clouds” is referring to clouds, or a large number of saints, and not regular clouds. Then, we will meet the Lord in the air. At that time, the Lord will not come to the earth. This will be the greatest gathering of believers in the history of the church.
(Read 1 Corinthians 15:52-53)
