    I agree there will be a ' final judgement ' at the soon coming ' time of separation ' on Earth as found at Matthew 25:31-33,37,40.
    A favorable judgement on Earth for the figurative humble ' sheep' but an adverse judgement for the figurative haughty ' goats' .
    Since the Earth abides forever - Ecclesiastes 1:4 B; Psalms 96:10; Psalms 104:5; 1 Chronicles 16:30; Isaiah 45:18 - there is No expiration date for Earth.
    The ' NEW Heavens and Earth ' is in connection to a NEW heavenly government or kingdom over Earth for a thousand years.
    The NEW Earth is Not a new planet but NEW in the sense that the Earth remains forever will become as described in Isaiah 35th chapter.

    He'd condemn all the rich, the exploiters, the nationalists, the supporters of the military.
    He'd take all the Hippies to Heaven.

    How would the Second Coming differ from an invasion?

    Isn't the idea that the entirety of humanity will now have one norm imposed on them?

    And that norm will be a dictatorship, an absolute autarchy?

    And if the dead are to be raised (or reassembled from their scattered atoms, or however that works) how will the housing problem be tackled? Who's going to pay for it?

    Since I rather prefer democracy, if you want to get in touch, I'll be up in the hills with my band of outlaws.

    The world carries on as it usually does, except for the few who were waiting and who were ready. They accept the Message and begin to share it.

    They usually start reporting the amazing transformation of the people around the New Messenger.

    The Messenger comes because people have become corrupt and materialistic, the economy will eventually crash and a new way will begin.

    They reject the message as they fear they will loose power and wealth and then start killing the Messenger and all the new followers.

    It would only be possible to have the internet because of the new message given.

    Civil disturbances, as people find it hard to accept the needed change.

    They would carry on as normal. a few may decide to change.

    The vast Majority would also reject the New Message

    It will give the foundation to make the world a better place, but a rapid decline would set in before and event that shakes the limbs of mankind will waken them for a strange sleep.

    IMHO, that is how it has happened, starting in 1844.

    Regards Tony

    If you are referring to the "Big Crunch" theory of the universe, where it expands
    and contracts, then forget it. The universe had a beginning and it will have an
    end - we don't know if it's going to be the Big Rip (space tears apart) or the Big
    Freeze (where all the stars die.)
    Whatever - just remember one thing: The universe did not create itself when it
    did not exist.

    But, is he White? If so, I predict difficult times for Jesus.

    It would be a shame to Martin Luther King to see people talk like this.
    Skin color is back - brought back by African Americans and those who
    support them.
    I think there's going to be more skin hate now than there was before.

    They'll brand him as part of a made up terrorist group, like Antifa, and seek to have him taken out. That Jesus just can't seem to get away from that whole getting crucified thing. He's always been a bit of a radical lefty. ;)

    "What if Jesus comes tomorrow?"
    Well, for one I think the Mega Churches and Televangelists would have to answer for why they used Jesus as a money-making scheme.

    It will be like this:

    For as the lightning comes forth from the east, and is seen even to the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
    Matt. 24:27

    The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that cause stumbling, and those who do iniquity, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be weeping and the gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
    Matt. 13:41-43

    It will be very visible to all and no more fake news. :)

    Yes, it is free just as Jesus said it should be ( Matthew 10:8 B ) and such reading and study of the Bible, and the giving of time is found at www.jw.org
