One would expect that a Christ would have to show up
previously before it can "return."

I have pondered the question of the "Religious Right" and
their actions in this context. It seems patently obvious that
the "'Christian' Coalition" and their minions are going out
of their way to make things much worse, thus hearlding their
god's return. It makes a great deal of spooky sense, since
"Pat" Robertson states that the world MUST get worse before
his Jesus comes back.
Take a look at what the "Religious Right" is trying to
the eradication of public education, thus forming an elite
few whom can affort to purchase an education;
the "dumming down" of education in general, to the extent
that American cannot compete with other nations economically;
the elimination of welfare, whereby millions of people
(mostly children and women) must live even more squalid,
miserable lives--- which boosts church attendance;
the elimination of most, if not all, birth control, which
makes a huge labor surplus--- people will consider themselves
luckly to get a job that pays a dollar a day;
deregulation of industry, which has ALWAYS resulted in
"free trade," where employers may pay less than a living
accentuating superstition and dread among the population,
offering "prayer" and wishful thinking as one means, if not
the "best," to address socity's problems;
the elimination of basic Constitutional rights such as
unlawful search and seizure, presumbed innocence, and the
right of self-defense against attack;
the deliberate bankrupting of the nation's tresury, making
the nation go from the biggest creditor nation to the biggest
debtor nation, ala Bush and Reagan;
the deliberate bankrupting of Social Security, ala Bush
the vilification and demonizing of liberal compassion,
libertine goals, and works of social well-being.
I think that the "Religious Right" believes that their god
will only return when humanity has gone beyond the point of
self-succor. When humanity can no longer save itself, and
starts to die in droves, then and ONLY then, will their god
come. So they are actively working to bring about this point
of human disaster.
I can think of no other theory for why the "Religious Right"
is trying to do what it is.
