Marginal groups get into the Second Coming. We contemplate with pleasant savagery the haves and the snobs getting smashed. “Kings shall see that which they had not considered.” “Bottom rail top dis time.”
(We don’t talk as much about the Second Coming of Christ as we used to. Maybe Mormons are more mainstream.)
But the scriptures seem to think that the Second Coming is more than a revolution, more than the circulation of elites. The lovely one read me 2 Nephi 15:15 this morning:
And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled.
A mean man means a poor man and an unimportant man. At the day Christ will crush both the outcasts and the insiders, each and every one he puts under his foot.
Yet we are to pray, ‘Thy Kingdom Come.’
