RETURN OF CHRIST
1 Thessalonians 4:15-17
According to the Lord's own word,
we tell you that we who are still alive,
who are left till the coming of the Lord,
will certainly not precede those
who have fallen asleep.
For the Lord himself
will come down from heaven,
with a loud command,
with the voice of the archangel
and with the trumpet call of God,
and the dead in Christ will rise first.
After that, we who are still alive and are left
will be caught up together with them
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And so we will be with the Lord forever.
