4:13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
4:14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
4:15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
4:16For 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:
4:17Then 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.
5:1But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
5:2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
5:3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
5:4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5:5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
5:6Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
5:7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
5:8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
5:9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
5:10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
5:11Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
5:23And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
15:52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
15:53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
15:54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
15:55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
15:56The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
15:57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
15:58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
2:11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
2:12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
2:13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
2:1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2:2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2:3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2:4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2:5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2:6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2:7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2:8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2:9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2:10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
5:7Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
5:8Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
