Walter Cronkite, who earned the respected title “the most trusted man in America” for his bold and earnest style as the anchorman of the “CBS Evening News” for nearly two decades, died Friday. He was 92. He died after a long illness with his family by his side.Cronkite was recruited from the United Press wire service and joined CBS News in 1950. He served as “Evening News” anchor and managing editor of CBS News from April 16, 1962, to March 6, 1981. His career started in 1937 and spanned more than six decades in radio, print and TV.


How many times did America hear the news from Walter Cronkite? He was almost like a family member whos image came through the living room TV set. And who could mistake that reporter's voice?

We're always asking, "What's news?" We want to know what's going on. And in a greater sense we want to know what's going on in the future and how today's events are gearing towards that.

The disciples were curious and asked Jesus about news from the future:

Matthew 24:3-4 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them..."

He went on and shared with the disciples about world events that would happen and how He would then appear. He said to look for the "signs of the times."

Read the rest of Matthew 24 and see how the news of today fits in to not only now but also the prophetical future. Then when people ask you, "What's news?" you can tell them before it happens!
