Big news inside this issue, the managing editor shares the news about The Good News changing its name to Beyond Today in the upcoming January-February 2016 issue. Also inside, we will examine several topics and questions and provide biblically-based answers that offer help for today and hope for tomorrow.
We know that God is working out His plan, and it will come to pass exactly as He sees fit. We look forward to a world and a way of life beyond today.
A shocking event from the life of the biblical prophet Daniel opens a window into a different dimension—an unseen spirit world and beings who play a hidden role in events taking place around us.
God’s Word reveals surprising details about an evil being and his cohorts who are the enemies of God.
The apostle John writes that “the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one” (1 John 5:19). Through his influence Satan has deceived the whole world (Revelation 12:9). The entirety of civilization has been seduced by this cunning being through his persuasive deception and insidious lies.
We look at our world and rightly wonder, What’s going on? We watch terrorist groups rise in the Middle East and Africa where they brutalize whole populations into fear. They behead and torture captives—showing no shred of decency or humanity. We are seeing works of spiritual wickedness being done through men who use religion and politics as coverings for unspeakable acts against their fellow human beings.
Beginning with the next issue, we are changing the name of The Good News to Beyond Today to reflect this hope and mindset. This move is also to better distinguish our publication from others using the name “good news” and to link our magazine more closely to our Beyond Today television program and Internet websites.
