Beyond Today TV Records New Program in Vienna

January 17, 2011

On Sunday, January 16, on location in Vienna, Austria, Beyond Today presenter Darris McNeely recorded a fascinating program titled “Europe on the Threshold.” This program covers the history of the Holy Roman Empire in Europe, and shows how an end-time revival of the Empire will soon emerge on the world scene.

We pray daily for God’s Kingdom to be established on this earth, a wonderful, new age for mankind. But as we stand on that threshold, we see other great prophesied events that must yet be fulfilled before His Kingdom is established.

In this Beyond Today program we’re focusing on an area of the world that claims a unique place in history, one that is playing a major and growing role in the world today—and which is prophesied to be the religious and political power center of the globe—as events unfold before the return of Jesus Christ. That area is Europe.

Events in Europe will affect the entire world, and God’s people vividly understand that we are on the cusp of a new age for humankind, a final attempt by mankind to rule this world itself, without God, before the Kingdom of God is established!

Before Christ returns, His government will be preceded by this powerful kingdom of men. It will be a superpower that has its roots in antiquity—the Holy Roman Empire. The bad news of this kingdom is also one of prophetic continuity, a message through which God has continually warned those who have eyes to see, so they will not be deceived.

This rise of a final, mighty kingdom of man will be the last resurrection of a long, successive series of kingdoms. It will be the ultimate deceitful, rebellious and futile effort to establish peace on the earth apart from God.

The booklet offered on this episode of Beyond Today is, “The Book of Revelation Unveiled.” Please watch our TV logs and announcements for the future airing of this important Beyond Today program about God’s soon coming Kingdom.

  2. One script idea that you all might want to use
    on future programs like this would go as
    follows…..Before the advent of the Kingdom
    of God, mankind will have witness the best
    of what man can do..United States democracy..and even at its best, will turn
    out to be woefully inadequate…and the worst
    of what man can offer…the tyrannical
    revival of the roman empire…

  3. This is GREAT! But what happened to Steve Myers? Is he still one of the presenters or is he being spread more to cover added congregational duties? If so, that leaves two presenters….prep for something else?

    • Barbara, no need for concern. Mr. Myers is still on the lineup! He recorded a new program last month, and will be back in the Beyond Today studio again in February.

  5. Hope he uses a lapel microphone and not the MTV-style mikes they use in the studio.

    • Hi Ken,
      Though I do like many things about the program this is one thing that bugs me too. Those microphones are distracting! I’m not sure if there’s a technical reason to use them or not but it sure would be better in my opinion to NOT see them.

    • This raises a somewhat related question. Why don’t UCG ministers use that studio mike (with the attachment clipped to the belt, I assume) during services — especially at the Feast?

      It would free ministers from being rigid at a lectern, and might allow for more effective use of PowerPoint in messages.

      (I admittedly base this idea on what I’ve seen other ministries do, in person and on TV.)

  6. This format looks promising however,ater what just happened I hope all these men in the ministry AND all of us in the body become humble in the eyes of God and serve Him and His FAMILY as SERVANT leaders.If they do and we do God may do a GREAT work in UCG. If not I don’t feel He will us us much. We must have a new beginning of love and faith in humility.

  7. I agree about the microphones. Lapel mic’s would be better, however I really like the message that they give. I pray for the program to really take hold. We just may be on to something that is really big!We seem to have the talent of many working on this
    Program. GO For IT!! We are behind you.

  8. I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t like the fancy microphones.
