1 Thess 4 & 5

For this we say to you in the word of the Lord,
that we who are alive, who remain until the coming of the Lord, shall
not precede them who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself shall
come down from heaven with commandment and with the voice of an
archangel and with the trumpet of God: and the dead who are in God's
Chosen One, Jesus, shall rise first. Then we who are alive, who are
left, shall be taken up together with them in the clouds to meet
God's Chosen One, Jesus, into the air: and so shall we be always with the Lord. Therefore, comfort each other with these words.

Brothers and sisters, you don't need us to write to you concerning the times and moments when this shall occur. For
you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord shall so come as
a thief in the night. For when they shall say: Peace and security; then
shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the birth pangs upon a
mother, and they shall not escape. But you, my family, are not in
darkness, that the day should overtake you as a thief. For all you are
the children of light and children of the day: we are not of the night
nor of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do: but let us
watch, and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they
that are drunk, are drunk in the night. But let us, who are of the day,
be sober, having on the breast plate of faith and loving kindness and,
for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God has not appointed us to
receive the judgment of wrath: but to the purchasing of our salvation
by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us: that, whether we are alive
or have passed away, we may live together with him. Knowing this
comfort and encourage one another, as you are already doing.
