Can we find the Rapture in Revelation?

Revelation 14:14-20 One of the glaring weaknesses of the pretribulation rapture view is the complete omission of any mention of a pretribulation rapture in Revelation. The book of Revelation was written to the "seven churches of Asia" to reveal the things that "must shortly come to pass."

Peter’s Later Thoughts – The Epistles
