For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first.

Then we, the living ones who remain [on the earth], shall simultaneously be caught up along with [the resurrected dead] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always (through the eternity of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord!

Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words.

in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

A. Thank GOD in everything

"Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks],"

Give thanks or "eucharisteo" in the Greek language, meaning "to be grateful, to express gratitude towards, to say grace at a meal"

Thanksgiving is one sacrifice that we do, we thank GOD even we feel like it or don't. It's easy to give thanks when everything's going your way, but how about if it's not, then we still give thanks for this is the sacrifice of praise acceptable to GOD.
