The Rapture of the Church takes place prior to the Great Tribulation recorded in Revelation chapters 6-19. The Tribulation Period is known as a time of Jacob's Trouble (Jeremiah 30:6-7). This period is referred to in Daniel as the seventieth week. Since the first 69 weeks were directly related to Israel, it only makes sense to believer that the last week will be related to Israel as well. The Church is promised deliverance from God's wrath also known as the Hour of Temptation (Revelation 3:10; I Thessalonians 1:10, 5:9).
