1 THESSALONIANS 4: 13- 18 =

(13) BUT I WOULD NOT HAVE YOU IGNORANT BRETHREN, CONCERNING THOSE WHICH SLEEP, THAT YOU SORROW NOT, EVEN AS OTHERS WHICH HAVE NO HOPE.

(14) FOR IF WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS, DIED AND ROSE AGAIN, EVEN SO, THOSE WHICH SLEEP IN JESUS, WILL GOD BRING WITH HIM.

(15) FOR THIS WE SAY TO YOU BY THE WORD OF THE LORD, THAT WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN UNTO THE COMING OF THE LORD, SHALL NOT PREVENT THOSE WHICH ARE ASLEEP.

(16) FOR THE LORD HIMSELF, SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH A SHOUT, WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL AND WITH THE TRUMP OF GOD: AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST, SHALL RISE FIRST:

(17) THEN WE, WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN, SHALL BE CAUGHT UP TOGETHER, WITH THOSE IN THE AIR: AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD. 

(18) WHEREFORE, COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS.
