1 Thessalonians 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 3:8; 1 Thessalonians 4:15; 1 Thessalonians 4:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:10
For they themselves report about us what kind of a reception we had with you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God,
for now we really live, if you stand firm in the Lord .
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord , that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord , will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord .
who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.
