Revelation 3:10 (KJV) Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
The hour of temptation is the period of the Great Tribulation. God is telling us here, that the church will be kept from the Great Tribulation. This notifies us that the Rapture will take place before the Great Tribulation period.
(Read 2 Peter 2:9)
