Many who believe in a preTrib Rapture will say that during the Tribulation the ‘Marriage Supper of the Lamb’ occurs . . . or the ‘Bema Seat Judgment’ occurs. But, doesn’t logic dictate that Jesus would wait for ALL Christians to be present at these events?

Scripture plainly tells us, that there ARE going to be Christians alive during the Great Tribulation. Whether they were Christians BEFORE the Tribulation, or whether they became Christians DURING the Tribulation doesn’t matter, in regards to this point. The very fact that they ARE alive during the Tribulation means that there is no way the Wedding Feast is going to occur then, without them.

‘After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; . . . And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, THESE ARE THEY WHICH CAME OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION, AND HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES, AND MADE THEM WHITE IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.’ (Rev. 7:9, 13-17)

Which raises another point:  I know many people don’t want to hear this, but a good many people . . . from our day and time . . . and even in America . . . may enter into eternity by way of martyrdom, or through great suffering.  If this is something you are not prepared to do, start praying now that the Lord would help and prepare you.
