The first thing to do is to distinguish the Great Tribulation from the Wrath of God. Paul teaches that we are clean escaped from the wrath of God, nobody gets left behind in the Rapture, that is a bunch of nonsense, we have been bought with the precious blood of Jesus.
[/size]But says Paul "through great tribulation must we be saved" he says this in relation to the persecution he and his fellow apostles were undergoing along with the Thessalonians.
[/size]Tribulation is persecution and comes from man, the Great Tribulation is the great end-time persecution which Jesus warned about saying "you will be hated by all men for My name's sake."
[/size]The persecutor will be Antichrist, the beast.
[/size]Why am I sure that the church will go through the Great Tribulation?
[/size]It's very simple, since the source of the tribulation is Antichrist, all must take his number or perish, but His career is ended when Jesus returns. As soon as he seats himself in the temple declaring that he himself is God the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout and slay him with the breath of His mouth.
[/size]But Antichrist will have had his career, opposing every thing called god. His mission will have been to stamp out all religion.
[/size]The church is taken out at that time [what is left of it] Paul says "we who are left and remain" I dunno that just seems to indicate to me not very many. Jesus asks "but when the Son of man returns will He find faith on earth?"
[/size]Then comes the wrath of God upon the unbelieving world.
[/size]I believe many will be saved, we read of Enoch that he walked with God and was not for God took him. This is the first rapture recorded in the bible and thereafter "men began to call upon the Lord."
[/size]The wicked who remain will flee to the end of the earth. The Millennium reign will be rolled out from Jerusalem, although His appearance is sudden and a worldwide event.

Nice article Billy, but not Biblical

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
