1 Thessalonians 4:14-5:2

For if we believe that Jesus died and was raised, just so will God bring with him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. For we say this to you in the word of the Lord, that we the living who remain at the coming of the Lord will not come before those who have fallen asleep; for the Lord himself, at the summons and at the voice of the archangel and at the trumpet of God, will come down from heaven, and the dead in Christ will be raised first; then we the living who remain will be snatched up together with them in clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

But concerning the dates and the times, brothers, you have no need for us to write to you, for you know correctly that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
