Yes, the scripture references regarding the event are Revelation 3:10 · Revelation 11:15-19 · 2 Corinthians 5:10 · Matthew 24:30-31
While the word 'rapture' is not used in any translation of the bible (at least those in English). The word does mean 'a feeling of intense pleasure or joy.' and those of us who will get to heaven will experience those feelings as we meet our Lord in the clouds.

The Bible actually says
Just a little while longer, and the wicked will be no more;You will look at where they were,And they will not be there
So wicked will he removed
And only the meek will remain (verse 11)

There shall be no pre-Tribulation Rapture. That is unbiblical. What the Bible actually says is that the righteous, living and dead, will be caught up to meet Christ upon his public return.

No such thing as the rapture.
The belief that faithful Christians will be bodily caught up from the earth, suddenly taken out of the world, to be united with the Lord “in the air.” The word “rapture” is understood by some persons, but not by all, to be the meaning of 1 Thessalonians 4:17.
The word “rapture” does not occur in the inspired Scriptures.
If all faithful Christians will be bodily caught up from the earth, suddenly taken out of the world, how would you explain this scripture?
Psalms 37:29 The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.
when you die, all good people go to heaven, then if that is so, where do the righteous that live on earth forever come from if all righteous are in heaven.

You need to understand a little history about the rapture. The early Christians looked forward to a second coming of Jesus, and some of them even believed in a tribulation and a thousand year reign of Jesus. However none of them believed that the believers would experience a rapture before Jesus' second coming.
The idea of the rapture (along with Dispensationalism) was first developed by John Nelson Darby in the 1830's England. He influenced some people in the US, and in the early 20th century Cyrus Scofield developed a study Bible with notes promoting Dispensationalism (and the rapture). The Scofield reference Bible became a popular reference book for theology students and influenced many pastors in the US.
Is the rapture Biblical??? The Bible can be interpreted that way but scholars all have different opinions. One thing you can be sure of is that when people say they expect the rapture on a specific date - they're always wrong. If anyone thinks they know, then you can bet that its wrong.

I heard a preacher saying they the part where one is in the field and the other is taken away. This is just another example of God making the choice of the predestined. There always has to be one on each side. Ok back to the taken away. It has been given the name rapture that is what its called so if you want to call it taken away you can but Christians refer to that as the rapture. So to me the rapture is biblical.

Hardly. Darby made it up in the 1830's.
