"TO BE CAUGHT UP IN THE AIR" at the Lord's Coming does not mean a natural Air, the definition of this word AIR in this particular PHRASE means, SPIRIT!!!!
To meet the LORD in the SPIRIT is the only way we will be able to meet him! For if we don't have the HOLY GHOST, the Spirit of Christ Romans 8:9; on that great day of his WRATH, we will be BURNED UP!

NOTICE: It says "THE LAST DAY UPON THE EARTH) that will be at the LAST TRUMPHET OF GOD! 

John 14:3 (KJV) And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;( that where I am,) there ye may be also. 

WHERE IS CHRIST GOING TO BE? NOTICE HE SAID "THAT WHERE I AM" there ye may be also...... JOB said at the LAST DAY he would be on the earth STANDING!!!! (invisible INSIDE HIS PEOPLE = inside His Bride) - sitting or resting in Christ  = sat down on the 

Matthew 24:28 (KJV) For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 

JESUS' BODY IS REPRESENTED AS THE (CARCASS); and WE are represented as the EAGLES! What's the EAGLE'S going to do? The will be GATHERED together unto JESUS CHRIST body!!!!!! And his BODY, the Bride of Christ, the 144,000 will be on the EARTH! UNTIL HE COMES THE 2nd time and EVERY EYE shall see Him that sitteth upon the Throne. His feet will not touch the ground 1 Thes 4:16-17 = caught up in the air.

HERE'S THE EAGLES in this next verse and notice there not going to FLY but RUN!

Isaiah 45:24 The LORD is our strength and righteousness.

THIS VERSE SHOWS US OUR (STRENGTH) that we will have on that DAY!!!!
