But I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you grieve as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. 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 are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 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 thus we will always be with the Lord. 
1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
