“Jesus will descend from heaven, with an archangel’s voice shouting a command. The trumpet of God will blow and the dead who had put their faith in the Messiah will rise before anyone else. After that, those of us who are still alive will get lifted up into the clouds where we will join the others to meet the Lord in the air—and to stay with him forever. Pass these words along to encourage each other.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 Casual English Bible
