My vote is a stong yes to rapture before the economic collapse for several reasons. When the USA collapses economically the rest of world will as well. That will put us into Revelation chapter 6 very quickly and we know the church is gone before that. Also the AC will have to come on the scene to put things back together and again we are long gone before he arrives on the world stage. The final reason is we know that we are gone prior to the collapse because it is very clear to me we leave when it is still business as usual aka The Days of Noah, when everyone was eating, drinking and giving in marrige.
The economies around the world are now on the verge of collapse and it will IMO be the rapture that drives the final nail in the worlds economic coffin. We can watch Syria/Damascus and Iran and see the lid is about to blow there as well. God is putting the final touches on the church age and seems to be ready to fully turn his attention back to Israel. I think it is time to pack our proverbial bags and get ready for heaven!
