Rapture Of The Church

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 NLT

And now dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to believers who have died so you will not grieve like those who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns God will bring back with Him the believers who have died. 

In this part of the scripture this is in reference to the second coming of Jesus Christ back to earth to set up His thousand years of reign.

1 Thessalonians 4:15-17. NLT

We tell you this directly from the Lord, we who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet Him ahead of those who have died, for the Lord Himself will come down, with a commanding shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the ones who have died will rise from their graves, then we who are alive and remain on earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air then we will be with the Lord forever.

In this part of the scriptures, it describes what we call the RAPTURE. It is taken from the Greek word "HARPAZO" and the Latin word "RAPIERUM".  This event will take place before the Great Tribulation. I believe this could happen in the next four years. I'm a believer of PRE-TRIB rapture.
