faith in Christ comforts us in knowing that they who "sleep in Christ"
will be together again with us on the day when Jesus Christ returns to
gather all of us, both awake and asleep. ... to be with Him, forever. Amen
1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the
voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in
Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be
caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
