There are several views as to how the end times will play out, and when Christ will gather together His church. Some believe in a pretribulation rapture, followed by a batch of new believers who will have to face the time of Antichrist. Others, including myself, believe Scripture clearly teaches that the church will be here during the time of Antichrist and the mark of the beast.
But the REAL question is, will you stand firm in persecution, regardless. Even should the pretrib view be correct, that does NOT mean you will not have to face death for your faith. Will YOU stand firm for Christ, should that time come.
Here is a powerful movie that I highly recommend.
