Alas, sometimes a point of theological snobbery. Some religious persons claim that that the conditions necessary for the inbreaking of the Kingdom of Heaven have already occurred or begun to occur. Others disagree. There has never been much consensus about whether things would improve or worsen before the eschaton, or whether it would occur before or after judgement, tribulation, the advent of the messiah, or a final battle.
