GN: The Signs of the Times

January-February Good News: Do You Understand the Signs of the Times?
The January-February issue of The Good News is now completed and off to the printer, to be printed and mailed in the next two weeks.
The key question on the cover and in the lead article is one we should all be asking ourselves: “Do You Understand the Signs of the Times?”
Everywhere we look it seems we see dangerous and growing problems. Economic issues dominate the headlines, with millions of people out of work and government debt skyrocketing. The ugly conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan continue. Terrorist threats unnerve us. Rogue states pursue their single-minded determination to get nuclear weapons by any means possible.
Where is it leading? Does Bible prophecy provide any answers?
The lead article and several other articles in this issue—“Jesus’ Warning to Watch—Just What Did He Mean?” “Debt Troubles Mount for Britain and America,” “An Overview of End-Time Prophecy,” “Is a Global Food Crisis Brewing?” and “Europe Braces for Terrorism”—address those crucial questions.
Our regular “World News and Trends” feature does our annual look at the state of the world looking ahead to the year 2011. Last but not least, our youth article for teen and young adult readers covers another key issue: “Is the Bible Still Relevant?”
We deeply appreciate the faithfulness and generosity of our members who make it possible to share these sobering but ultimately encouraging truths from God’s Word, and we hope you’ll take these articles to heart. You cannot afford to let yourself be distracted from what is taking place in the world around us in these dangerous times.
We also hope you’ll join us in praying that this seed that we’re privileged to have a part in sowing will fall on fertile ground so that others may have the opportunity to learn and share in these wonderful truths!
