Will the rapture happen before or after the tribulation period? I was thinking it was before, but then I heard a sermon that made me think twice. In many of the examples of God's wrath in the Bible, God led His people through suffering, not take them out of it. Like Noah, or Job, or the Hebrews and Moses... God did not take them out of the suffering, He kept them safe during it. So wouldn't the same be true for the second coming of Christ?
