1 Thessalonians 4:1-18

1 Wherefore, as to what remaineth, we beseech you brethren, and exhort you, by the Lord Jesus, that as you have received from us how you ought to walk and please God, you would abound more and more. 2 For you know what instructions we gave you by the Lord Jesus: 3 for this is the will of God even your sanctification, that you abstain from fornication; 4 that every one of you know how to use his own vessel in sanctification and honour; 5 not in lustful indulgence, like the nations which know not God; 6 not overreaching and injuring his brother in this matter; for the Lord is the avenger of all such things, as we told you before and testified. 7 For God hath not called us for uncleanness, but to sanctification. 8 He therefore who rejecteth [these instructions] rejecteth not man, but God, even him who hath given us his holy spirit. 9 In respect to brotherly love you have no need of our writing to you, for you yourselves are taught of God to love one another, 10 and this indeed you practise to all the brethren, through all Macedonia; but we beseech you, brethren, to abound therein more and more; 11 and to make it your ambition to live quietly, and to mind your own business, and work with your own hands, as we charged you; 12 that your walk may appear orderly to the world, and that you may be in want of nothing. 13 Now I would not, brethren, have you ignorant in respect to them who are composed to rest, that you may not be afflicted with grief, like others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so [should we] also, that God will, by the agency of Jesus, bring with him them who are composed to rest. 15 For this we tell you by a word of the Lord, that we the living who are left till the coming of the Lord shall not anticipate them who are laid to rest 16 that the Lord himself, with an authoritative command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ shall be raised first; 17 afterwards we who are left alive shall, together with them, be conveyed in clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we shall be forever with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Ephesians 6:13-18

13 take up therefore the complete armour of God, that you may be able to make resistance in the evil day, and having put a stop to them all, to maintain your ground. 14 Stand, therefore, having your loins girded with truth, and having on the breast plate of righteousness, 15 and your feet shod with the preparation of the glad tidings of peace, 16 covering all with the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the evil one. 17 Take also the helmet of salvation, and the sword o" the spirit, that is the word of God; 18 in every prayer and supplication, always praying with the spirit [being for this purpose in a continual state of watchfulness and prayer] for all the saints
