The true chronology is that the rapture, coming just before wrath, is just before the 6th seal start of God's wrath.
You are correct the rapture precedes God's wrath, but the 6th seal doesn't start that wrath. It mentions the wrath but it is a vision of the future. All the seals are. Jesus opens all 7 while remaining in heaven. He doesn't leave when opening the 6th seal. So, the real second coming and rapture happens when the 7th trump sounds. After that the wrath begins as Revelation 11 declares. The wrath cannot start at the 6th seal and the 7th trump.
Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
Rev 11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
Rev 11:17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
Rev 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
Here it clearly states that God's wrath has come after the 7th trump sounds. Clearly God's wrath hadn't been coming for a long time before this or else the statement would be meaningless.
