Since the Holy Spirit and the Christian Church are taken "out of the way" before the Antichrist comes on the scene, how are people going to be saved during the time of tribulation that the world will go through?

Although the Christian Church (all true believers in Christ Jesus) will have been taken to heaven prior to the Antichrist arriving on the scene,1  all witness of Christ Jesus will not have been removed from the earth; Bibles, videos, and other literature will be left behind.

During the seven year Tribulation, people will continue to be saved through faith in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior; presently it is through the witness of the Christian Church; then, it will be through the Jewish people.2

As to God the Holy Spirit being removed from the earth, He will not be; He is God, and God is everywhere present, all the time and forever; He will be actively bringing things into being and restraining other things.  What will be removed, however, will be the restraining of evil, by the Holy Spirit, through the Christian Church; the Christian Church will be in heaven during the time of Tribulation. 3
