CARRIED AWAY, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 11/6/20 By Ken Smith<><
Today’s Scripture (Received this morning from a church in Texas)
The LORD took hold of me, and I was carried away by the Spirit of the LORD. Ezek
When God Shoots You Out
In today’s Scripture, the word carried means “to shoot out, to launch forward.” It implies acceleration. As God carries you through life, it’s not always going to be routine, predictable, little by little. There are times when God is going to shoot you out and propel you years down the road. He’ll give you a break that you don’t deserve. He’ll cause you to meet the right person. He’ll turn a problem around when you didn’t see a way.
Your destiny is bigger than you’ve dreamed. You may feel as though you’ll never get to where you’re supposed to be. When God shoots you out, you’re going to make up for lost time. No person, no bad break, no unfair situation, and no organization can stop you. The doors that are going to open, the people you’re going to meet, and the opportunities that are coming your way are going to be bigger, better, more rewarding that you’ve ever thought possible.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for being a God who makes up for lost time. I believe that You will accomplish my dreams faster than I thought possible, and my future is bright because this is my time for acceleration. I believe that You will bless me beyond my dreams. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Ezekiel is one of my favorite prophets of the Old Testament. Don’t we all want to be carried away in the Holy Spirit. Can it be done? Can God really do that? Enoch was also carried away in the Spirit along with Apostle Paul but Paul had to return to help us out. When folks talk to me about U.F.O.’s I really don’t have a problem. Jesus told us that in the Father’s House were many mansions and that HE was building a place for HIS Church. If you read Ezek. chapters 1,2,3 and 10 you can go for a real ride. Please note that in his day that his language was very primitive in sharing about such things. So his word pictures reflect what was close in his experience in the use of words. So his words only reflect that limited vocabulary in trying to write about what he saw and experienced. It is like hell is (like fire) but in actuality what we know as fire here on earth would have not effect at all upon a spiritual being. So the fire of hell is like what it would feel like not to have a physical body. Our physical body is that only way that our spirit/soul had any knowledge of anything. sight, feeling, hearing, taste and touch are all translated into electronic pulses that make us aware of life and of all of the beauty around us that has been created by God. So hell is really the total absence of being in contact with the physical at all. So as not to get too depressed the opposite is also available to us to know and to see and to understand as God does. We have the option for us to receive a better body than the one we have now. One that will never age and that the energy flow is perfect so toilets will not be needed. So Paul shares a lot about the 3rd Heaven in spite of being told to keep it a secrete. 1 Thess. 4:9-18. “ Now concerning brotherly love, you have no need for anyone to write you, for you have been [personally] taught by God to love one another [that is, to have an unselfish concern for others and to do things for their benefit]. 10 For indeed you already do practice it toward all the [a] believers throughout Macedonia [by actively displaying your love and concern for them]. But we urge you, brothers and sisters, that you excel [in this matter] more and more, 11 and to make it your ambition to live quietly and peacefully, and to mind your own affairs and work with your hands, just as we directed you, 12 so that you will behave properly toward outsiders [exhibiting good character, personal integrity, and moral courage worthy of the respect of the outside world], and be dependent on no one and in need of nothing [be self-supporting]. 13 Now we do not want you to be uninformed, believers, about those who are asleep [in death], so that you will not grieve [for them] as the others do who have no hope [beyond this present life]. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again [as in fact He did], even so God [in this same way—by raising them from the dead] will bring with Him those [believers] who have fallen asleep in Jesus. 15 For we say this to you by the Lord’s [own] word, that we who are still alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will in no way precede [into His presence] those [believers] who have fallen asleep [in death]. 16 For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of the [b] archangel and with the [blast of the] trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain [on the earth] will simultaneously be caught up (raptured) together with them [the resurrected ones] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord! 18 Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words [concerning our reunion with believers who have died]. 1 Thess. 4:9-18 And then read 2 Thess.2 where Paul makes some things a little easier to understand. We have a very limited amount of time on earth to decide to go for the darkness or the light and our decision is eternal. So IF YOU ask, seek and knock then God will help you turn on the lights for now and for eternity. Ezek.28:13-19 concerning the ultimate end of lucifer.

Worthy Brief <email@example.com> Around 200 evangelical leaders have signed a statement titled “A 2020 Call for Biblical Peacemaking: Evangelical Leaders’ Statement on Violence and Division,” in which they urge Christians to rise up as peacemakers in the wake of a tempestuous year and a fraught electoral season, the Christian Post reports. The massive voter turnout in the 2020 election and the narrow margin in the vote brought into stark relief a deepening divide in the U.S. that has robbed the winner of a clear political mandate. U.S. President Donald J. Trump warned Thursday that supporters of Democratic rival Joe Biden is “trying to rig the election” as video footage emerged of possible fraud around the presidential vote. At this time, 7 states have 1-25% more votes than Registered Voters. Do you know about the “HAMMER” TO STEAL AN ELECTION,
