1 Corinthians 15:51-53
Behold! I tell you a mystery. s We shall not all sleep, t but we shall all be changed,
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For u the trumpet will sound, and v the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and w this mortal body must put on immortality.

1 Thessalonians 4:15
For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
1 Thessalonians 4:17
Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.
Who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
1 Thessalonians 4:16
For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
And in that day a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were lost in the land of Assyria and those who were driven out to the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
Then the Lord will appear over them, and his arrow will go forth like lightning; the Lord God will sound the trumpet and will march forth in the whirlwinds of the south.
Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.
Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice
For they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
2 Corinthians 5:2 - 4
For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling.
