Bible: 1 Thess 4:15-17

4:15 For we tell you this by the word of the Lord, 1  that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will surely not go ahead of those who have fallen asleep. 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of the archangel, 2  and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 4:17 Then we who are alive, who are left, 3  will be suddenly caught up 4  together 5  with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord.
