Question: Where in the Bible does it say that saved people will be left after the Rapture, will not be able to be martyred? And are we are being judged now with no second chances?

Answer: Every saved person who is alive when the Rapture occurs, along with all of the dead in Christ, will be caught up to meet Jesus in the air (see 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). The deaths of the martyred believers spoken of in the book of Revelation will all occur before the Rapture (see Revelation 20:4-6). The Bible does not seem to provide the details on exactly how people can be saved after the Rapture. During this time, when Jesus rules the earth for 1000 years, we presume He will make clear what He requires of humanity. But until that time arrives, we know exactly what God requires of us. The only questions is, who will do it?
