In Christian end times prophecy, the Rapture is an event where the faithful will be literally snatched from the Earth and taken up to heaven in the blink of an eye. The faithful who are not part of the Rapture are left behind to deal with the Tribulation, a period of immense suffering before the world ends. The Rapture is a relatively new element in Christian end times prophecy and Christians do not universally accept this belief. Even among those who believe in the Rapture, there's considerable debate about the timing of the Rapture, with some believing it will occur before the Tribulation while others believe it will occur during or after the Tribulation.
