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.” • 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17.

O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” • 1 Corinthians 15:51-55.
