"Let the wise hear and incease in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance..."
-Proverbs 1:6 (ESV)
Distinctionby Pastor Kevin Winkler on March 31, 2020
I wanted to share this message with the church. It is being published later than it was given. To be honest I wanted to check myself on this. There is generally three voices going on inside of us at any given time (sometimes all three). The voices are God’s, the enemie's and our own. This is one of the reasons that God wants us to spend time with Him in His Word and in prayer. To teach us HOW to hear from Him. God never contradicts His Word or His nature. So, we must learn to distinguish His voice from others. As stated I wanted to give time to check myself.
Back at the end of March or the first day of April, I was asking the Lord about my gifts… about my calling and hearing from Him correctly that would correlate with what HE HAS GIVEN, not what I just decided I wanted and appropriated it for myself. But I asked Him about all this Coved-19 and the country. I wanted to know more.
Here is what I believe He spoke to my heart in regards to this back then:
I believe that God indicated that “around” the beginning of May, we will see things start getting better - a return to some normality. It is most likely going to take most of the summer to stabilize the economy and bring everything back – "RIGHT ON TIME" (there was an emphasis here). We will be ok, despite the news reports. Don’t give into FEAR! Look how God is protecting the Godly. Look how God is dealing with the wicked. If there is such a distinction NOW between the people what do you think it will be like in the “REAL END.” (emphasis again) The REAL END has not come yet! But God is getting us ready for it.
This message is both such an encouragement, that God does make distinction between the people, and a warning that Gods DOES make distinction between the people. Please get on the right side – His Side – right now. There is no time to loose.
