The word of God says that people remaining on earth will go through Tribulation prior to Jesus Christ's return with His Bride.  They will then rule and reign over His Kingdom from the Israel which Jesus will regather once the Jews believe on Him whom they pierced. The Devil is the god of this present world and wants to be worshipped as God. To fulfil this desire he has planned a counterfeit tribulation before the emergence of his counterfeit christ (the Antichrist) which he hopes people will believe is the Messiah.  This counterfeit christ will then rule the world from the counterfeit Israel which exists today.  I believe Covid 19 marks the beginning of the Devil's counterfeit tribulation judgments.  

It appears that the Devil's world system (Synagogue of Satan) is currently counterfeiting the tribulation judgments with Covid 19, a counterfeit pestilence.   It appears that Covid 19 will be soon followed by lawlessness, economic collapse, famine, and microchipping which will be the Devil's counterfeit mark of the Beast.  The Devil will deceive many into believing the microchip is the mark of the Beast.    

Christians should be comforted during these evil times because the Lord has promised that we will escape the coming tribulation and will be raptured to Heaven to marry Him.  There's no need to be fretful today. In fact, we should be joyful knowing God’s judgment on this evil world is soon coming.

Because the Church is still on earth, we are not experiencing the seal judgments as some Christians believe.  The Church is raptured in Revelation 4 and the tribulation judgments begin in Revelation 6.  The Church is in Heaven in Rev 5 (though the modern versions have changed the wording to deceive Christians as to the timing of the rapture).  

The Satanic Synagogue of Satan controls this world and during the last 200 years its efforts have been most sinister in creating its own Israel (apart from God), in creating its own world government, and in installing its own christ (the antichrist) on the throne in Jerusalem.   

Jesus Christ has stated that His Kingdom is not of this world and that He'll be returning soon to regather His Israel from the Jewish remnant who believe on Him who they pierced.  The Israel that today exists is a counterfeit.  

The Lord's return is most imminent and Christians today like John the Baptist should be preaching repentance and belief in Him to the world's lost.

The Bible is not clear if we will escape the tribulation or not. Its not fact. I think its better to say that you yourself believe in this but that others may not.

Actually, the Bible is very clear that the Rapture precedes the Tribulation period.  There are many verses that support a pre-Tribulation Rapture, however, 1 Corinthians 15:51 is the proof text with "mystery" being the key word.

"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." 1 Cor. 15:51-52

Colossians 1:26 explains Paul's meaning of the word "mystery."

"Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:"

In other words, the Rapture was a hidden doctrine until Paul revealed it to the Church. Therefore, Jesus was not referring to the rapture in Matthew 24:30-31 but to His appearing to the remnant of Jews at the end of the Tribulation:

"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn." Zechariah 12:10

Not only do many verses support the pre-trib rapture, but the fact that the church is not present during the tribulation judgements is telling. The Church, the Bride of Christ, is in Heaven for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb during the tribulation period which is the time of Jacob’s (Israel’s) trouble.
