"Romans 13:11--now is our salvation nearer than when we believed"

Hello, John and Doves,

Romans 13:11:  "And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed."

The Rapture of the Church will happen in the fullness of time, for it is written,
“In the fullness of time, God sent His Son, born of a woman, subject to the Law.”  Galatians 4:4
We can be sure that God is absolutely punctual.  Jesus wants to come for us soon, but He and the Father are one.  Therefore, everything must be done "by the Book."
It is written,

6      “The LORD’s promises are pure,

                like silver refined in a furnace,

                purified seven times over.

7      “Therefore. LORD, we know you will

                        protect the oppressed,

                preserving them forever from this

                        lying generation,

8      “even though the wicked strut about,

                and evil is praised throughout the land.”

                        Psalm 12:6-8  NLT

And yet, while we are waiting, we need to remember that:

1      “The heavens proclaim the glory of God.

                The skies display his craftsmanship.

2      “Day after day they continue to speak;

                night after night they make him known….

7      “The instructions of the LORD are perfect,

                reviving the soul.

        “The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy,

                making wise the simple.

8      “The commandments of the LORD are right,

                bringing joy to the heart.

        “The commands of the LORD are clear,

                giving insight for living.”

                    Psalm 19:(1-2 and 7-8)  NLT
