As far as protection - if a person is saved, and baptized, and has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, you won't have to worry - if you are still on the planet, you, being a believing child of God, will have God's hand of protection upon you. I.e. if the crap is hitting the fan all around you, nothing will touch the hairs of your head. God protects His children - as long as they have accepted His son as their Savior.
I'm torn on the Rapture, but leaning on it being that Christians will be 'snatched up' before the seven year tribulation - if that's the case, and you have received Jesus as your Savior then you won't even be here. God will also protect His small children and infants as they are not accountable for their sins, if they even have any.
If the Rapture isn't true, then you will still be protected no matter what is going on around you.
So bottom line, if you are right with God, either way, whether there is a Rapture or not, you will have God's hand over you for protection.
The people that are standing around mocking and laughing? Well, they will be in the direct line of 'fire' per say. That is what the 'final days' and "Armageddon" are all about - God is ridding His earth of all evil.
Faith, my friend, faith - that is stressed over and over, and over and over, in the Bible. Make sure you have things right with Jesus in your soul, as well as your wife - and yall both stay in God's Word i.e. reading His Bible daily - and pray for His protection, as well as guidance. And you'll be alright.
When nothing happens et man you should promise to run round times square naked with a daffodil up your bum.
