Your teaching here that God takes his believing church out of the world only after the tribulations is heresy. The rapture comes first, then the antichrist is revealed. This is so absolutely clear I fail to see how you miss that.
Reply from Watchman Bob: I'm sorry, you are confused. The rapture comes just before the wrath of Elohim ("God") is poured out on the earth at the end of the seven years, not before the "great tribulation," which is the wrath of Satan, is poured out against Israel and the Church, which begins at the midpoint of the seven years (Revelation 12:12-17; 13:5-7).
