Ro 13:11 [It is] high time to awake out of sleep. To awake from carelessness and indifference. For now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed. Their eternal salvation. That was certainly true of them, and is true of every believer now. Some have thought that Paul referred to the speedy second coming of the Lord. He did not know the time of that event, nor did any man, but it might be that he shared the hope of the early, suffering church, that it would be speedy. See Mt 24:36 1Th 5:1,2 2Th 2:1.

View Wesley's Notes for Romans 13:11

13:11 And do this - Fulfil the law of love in all the instances above mentioned. Knowing the season - Full of grace, but hasting away. That it is high time to awake out of sleep - How beautifully is the metaphor carried on! This life, a night; the resurrection, the day; the gospel shining on the heart, the dawn of this day; we are to awake out of sleep; to rise up and throw away our night - clothes, fit only for darkness, and put on new; and, being soldiers, we are to arm, and prepare for fight, who are encompassed with so many enemies. The day dawns when we receive faith, and then sleep gives place. Then it is time to rise, to arm, to walk, to work, lest sleep steal upon us again. Final salvation, glory, is nearer to us now, than when we first believed - It is continually advancing, flying forward upon the swiftest wings of time. And that which remains between the present hour and eternity is comparatively but a moment.

 

Ralph De Jesus's comment on 2010-01-05 11:39:21:

The coming of the lord is nearer than when we first accepted him and his truth. We are now under his grace but soon that grace will end when the majority of Jews believe that Jesus is their long awaited messiah and his grace will return to them again and will end for us. So those who are under the grace now must persevere and obey Godís commandments as they did when they first believed, and if they have fallen because of sin they must repent; for the LORD and our salvation is near and so is the time of the closing of the doors of the Ark (His Church).
