“…for the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God.  And the dead in Christ shall rise first.  Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them, in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.  And thus shall we ever be with the Lord.  Therefore, comfort one another with these words.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

“…God is light and in Him there is no shadow of turning at all…and if we sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.  And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but, also, for the whole world.” ~ 1 John 1:5 & 2:1-2
