                              But we do not want you to be uninformed,
                                                                                            brothers about those who have fallen asleep,
                                                      that you may not grieve as others do who have no
                                 For since we BELIEVE that Jesus died and
                                  rose again, even so,
                                                       THROUGH JESUS, God will bring with Him
                                 those who have fallen asleep.
                                                                                For this we declare to you by a word
                                                        from the Lord, 
                                                                               that we who are alive, who are left until the coming
                               of the Lord will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven
                                                                              with a cry of command,
                                             with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God.
                                 And the dead IN CHRIST will rise first.
 Then we who are alive, who are left,
                                  will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air,
                  and so we will  ALWAYS be with the Lord.
Therefore encourage one another with these words.

                                                                                       (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 ESV)
