Romans 13:11 (KJV) 

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.

1 Thessalonians 5:2 (KJV)
“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

Many things are happening today that help us to understand where we are historically, as it relates to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together unto Him (Rapture).  At His first coming, many missed Him, because they were not ready to receive Him as He was.  Now, as we approach His “second” coming, how many of God’s people, who profess to know His name, will miss Him this time, because we are “asleep?”  We are having church, but Christ is standing at the door knocking, pleading to be let in, because He has been pushed out of His church, for modern day “christianity.”
