Actually, there are many hints toward a Pre-Trib Rapture.
One such hint is
1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
God will not pour out His wrath on His own, but on the wicked. And that wrath will be throughout the Earth.
No need looking for me when that period comes, because I won't be here... you won't find me.
This assumes the tribulation is synonomous with the wrath, yet Revelation gives us seven seals, (which I believe, in reading it, seems to be an overview of the entire period, though I admit I could be wrong), then seven trumpets, which seem to be the various events of the tribulation as they occur, then the seven vial of the wrath of God, which would indeed be the outpouring of God's wrath, begun in Rev 14 with the angel from the temple in Heaven harvesting from the ripe vines and casting them into the winepress of God's wrath.
So, there is a tribulation time, and there is God's wrath, but while they are connected, they are yet two separate events.
