why Rapture Doctrine is not biblical and Paul and the book of revelations

the verse where the so callded doctrine of rapture, talks about no rapture doctrine at all, he teaches about why you must not suffer because of the ones who died early.
A way to recognize false doctrines is to figure what are the actual and real intended teaching of certain chapter.

14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive andremain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
The reason of this teaching, moreover, he says the ones alive wont prevent them (resurrect before) the ones who died before.

 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
He says the ones who died shall rise first. Therefore all doctrine of so called rapture, gets dismissed here.
in the apocalipse you can see clearly what Paul describes in his reference, which is one of the reasons I believe Paul got Johns revelation,
which goes against the mainstream presumed dates of event.

And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
so if you read both verses, there is no way that, what Paul is saying, happens before chapter 14:13 of the book of revelations, 
But let see what comes in the book of revelations after that: 

14And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe _Rev 14
which matches this: 
 49So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

So the so called doctrine of rapture, is an invention and non existant on the bible.

 (There are at least one more reference Paul makes about the book of revelations, when he tells about Jesus destroying the son of perdition with the sword of his mouth, which comes into this account.

2 Thes 1 "7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming"

 Which clearly matches the book of revelations.
