Jesus’ parable of the 10 virgins in Matthew 25 shows our need for watchfulness and the dangerous spiritual consequences of failing to be alert and vigilant. Jesus’ call to watchfulness and alertness is why Beyond Today is committed to helping you keep informed of important world trends, events and conditions.
Jesus said, “Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching” (Luke 12:36 Luke 12:36And you yourselves like to men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he comes and knocks, they may open to him immediately.

Instead our mission is to direct attention to the invisible spirit element behind the big news and challenging circumstances of our world and where they are heading in light of Bible prophecy.
God doesn’t want us to fear or be carried away by the world around us. A Christian should be working on overcoming the world, as Christ did (John 16:33 John 16:33These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
