1 Thess 4:13-18, (MKJV)
|13 ||But I would not have you ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, that you be not grieved, even as others who have no hope.|
|14 ||For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will also bring with Him all those who have fallen asleep through Jesus.|
|15 ||For we say this to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall not go before those who are asleep.|
|16 ||For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ shall rise first.|
|17 ||Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall ever be with the Lord.|
|18 ||Therefore comfort one another with these words.|
