I think your interpretation fits well to 5:4, which seems to be
the point Paul was trying to make. Paul has three statements to make:
(1) Lord will come as a thief at night. (5:2)
(2) The unbelievers would not escape the judgement that comes a
a thief at night. (5:3)
(3) While Lord comes as a thief at night, the believers do not
need to worry about it; the day would not seize them as a thief.

But you bothers are not in darkness so as for the day to seize you
as a thief.
5:10, according to your interpretation, also encourages the believers
not to worry about the sudden coming of the Lord. Emphasizing
that BOTH the dead AND the living believers would be raised would be
out of the context at hand, it seems.
