OCTOBER BEGINNINGS
In these days of uncertainty, anxieties and fear,
allow the promises of Holy Scripture to bring truth and comfort to you

A Commentary by Constance Vanides

"And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."John 3:19

"I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness."John 12:46

As a new Christian believer, I was just beginning to open up to what the Bible was saying to me. The Lord began to give me messages. I often would wonder what they meant. I knew enough not to question God, but write down whatever He spoke to my heart.

On July 13, 1981, the Lord directed me to begin a message, "October--the beginning of the end." I was puzzled. What did it mean? I understood the Lord to reply, "Trust Me. It's not for you to know at this time."

Three days after the terrorists' attacks on the United States I was searching my old files and came across that same message from twenty years earlier! I would venture to say that now this message seems to have an urgency about it. Rather than the fear so many people have expressed lately, I believe the new understanding it brings is one of encouragement and hope in the One who is in control.

Read the words that follow, and see if now is the time for you to allow Jesus, who alone knows the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega, to direct your life.

OCTOBER BEGINNINGS
October--the beginning of the end.
Stay in My way.
Gather all My children around Me.
Let them know I am with them.
Calm them.
Show them My peace.
Through you will they be saved.
Continue ever close with Me
and I will lead you day by day.
Each day will I continue
to provide for your needs.
This will be a time of great testing.
For this have I prepared you.
Keep yourself pure
and unstained from the world.
Do not be worried
for I am your strength.
