16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves.
All of us will go to be with the Lord. He will raise the dead from the grave and those alive will go together to be with the Lord. None of us will be left behind. Jesus our Lord will take us home with to be with the Father.
