The most explicit rapture Scripture in the Book of Revelation is just prior to the Scripture in which God speaks to His raptured Church now dwelling in heaven telling them to "rejoice", and then God also speaks to the left-behind who now dwell on the earth telling them that He is sending "woe" upon them by casting the devil down to them. This Scripture is Revelation 12:12.

The following is the most explicit rapture Scripture :

Revelation 12:11

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb , and by the word of their testimony ; and they loved not their lives unto death."

The word "they" is referring to the brethren of the Body of Christ Church. The word "overcame" is speaking of how "the Body of Christ Church" defeated Satan. The word "him" is referring to Satan. The phrase "by the blood of the Lamb" is speaking of the Church's faith in the blood of Christ will cause them to be raptured on the Day of Salvation. The phrase "AND by the word of their testimony" refers to the requirement of the  Church to verbally declare their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The phrase " they loved not their lives unto death" is speaking of choosing death rather than to deny Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior as the martyrs have done.

Notice that there are TWO REQUIREMENTS for your salvation. You must have faith in the "blood of the Lamb" , AND YOU ALSO  must  verbally declare  your faith in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior according to the following Scripture:

Romans 10:9-10

9 "IF you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, AND shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, YOU SHALL BE SAVED."

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus !
