Please explain Matthew 24:40-41. "Then two shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Then two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left."

Matthew 24:37-42 tells us that this passage is speaking about judgments, not the Rapture. It refers to two specific judgments that will be poured out on the earth during the Tribulation. Letís say that there were 6 billion people left on the earth after the Rapture. Revelation 9:18 says that a third of the people on the earth will be killed. One third of six billion is two billion, that means that two billion will die and four billion will survive. Revelation 6:8 says that of the four billion that remain, one fourth of those will die. That's another one billion people. So of the six billion people, three billion will die and three billion will survive. In other words, out of two people, one will be taken and one will be left.
