What will happen after the Rapture occurs?

Revelation 12:12 reveals what will occur in heaven and on earth following the Rapture of the Church: "Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time." In the Old Testament we read repeatedly of the terrible things that will occur on earth. This is also confirmed by the Lord in Matthew 24:21: "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be." That is why it is called the Great Tribulation, because it has never occurred in such catastrophic proportions as it will during that time. Jesus makes it very clear that this one-time event will never happen again.
