Is the Rapture Pre-Tribulation, Mid-Tribulation or Post-Tribulation? This subject should not be an issue at all, because (Matthew 24:29-31) clearly and unequivocally states that the Rapture is Post-Tribulation.
“The Coming of the Son of Man. 29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days,
the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light,
and the stars will fall from the sky,
and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other” (Matthew 24:29-31).
What are the Tribulation and the Rapture? Verse 31 defines succinctly the Rapture, and the Tribulation comprises the hardships that Christ’s followers will suffer per (Mark 13:19-20).
“19 For those times will have tribulation such as has not been since the beginning of God’s creation until now, nor ever will be. 20 If the Lord had not shortened those days, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect whom he chose, he did shorten the days” (Mark 13:19-20).

Yes, we must “Prepare for Tribulation”, physically and spiritually. Central to the spiritual preparation is ― The Warning and the Illumination of Conscience ― an outpouring of God’s infinite Mercy and Grace for Humanity.

I encourage the reader to retrieve the articles Twenty Fourth Letter to the Filipinos and It’s Time for the Philippines for a hint about the date of the Warning and the Illumination of Conscience. The sacrament of Penance is an absolutely preparatory step for the event.
The Eternal Father has a plan for Humanity, and He can change the plan as it pleases Him.
