‘Jesus Coming Soon’ neon sign, Lahaina, Hawaii

Lahaina, Hawaii — The Apostolic Faith Church, with its “Jesus Coming Soon” neon sign, at 1211 Front Street. This location is a branch of the mother church — the Apostolic Faith Church at 1043 Middle St. in Honolulu, on the Island of Oahu, which was the subject of a 2001 Honolulu Advertiser profile.

Eagles song: ‘The Last Resort’

The final track on the 1976 Eagles magnum opus album Hotel California is a song called “The Last Resort.” Written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, it recounts the westward expansion of white people across America and their destruction of successive paradises as a result, concluding with Hawaii.

Lahaina and a neon sign are mentioned in the song’s lyrics:

You can leave it all behind and sail to Lahaina
just like the missionaries did so many years ago
They even brought a neon sign, ‘Jesus is Coming’,
brought the white man’s burden down,
brought the white man’s reign.
