Beyond Today Program Logs Highest Response for Fiscal Year

Message About End-time Prophecy Stirs Interest in Midst of Global Pandemic

[APRIL 8, 2020] – During the week of March 29-April 4, 2020, the Beyond Today television program, “The Message of the Antichrist,” generated the highest weekly response for the 2019-2020 fiscal year. Its 661 total responses also claimed title to the third lowest cost-per-response program out of 39 programs aired so far this fiscal year. 

United Church of God program host Gary Petty covered four critical points about the antichrist of end-time Bible prophecy. These included: 1) A great political leader coming on the scene who will appear to be a savior to a troubled world. 2) Persecution will befall Christians who refuse to accept the antichrist and his lying message. 3) Amazing wonders and miracles, designed to deceive the world, will transpire. 4) Economic prosperity will occur in the midst of global collapse.

Considering how nearly all countries are being afflicted by the Covid-19 Pandemic, it’s certainly possible that more people are searching for biblical answers about what lies ahead for the world. It is our hope and prayer that many of them will turn to their Creator in sincere repentance and obedience.
