Clear insights on two vital truths....Paul had tremendous faith yet God chose not to heal his thorn in the flesh....God does not always heal no matter how much Christians feel enough faith leads to automatic healing... 2 Paul gives here a clear revelation of his vision of heaven...the "man I knew " is obviously himself....his vision is in exact description of "eye has not seen nor ear heard the things that God has prepared for them that love Him "...most people 's out of body experiences of them running around heaven is sheer nonsense unless they also admit an impossible ability to describe in words what heaven is like just like Paul experience by God 's grace!!!!!

Paul is talking about visions and revelations that people have. He tells of an experience that a man told Paul about 14 years earlier. Paul makes the point that the man was glorifing himself while claiming these new revelations that are not backed by any other apostles teachings. He could not tell if this man was in the body, of christ, or not meaning he was not sure these were accurate words of God and stated only God knows. Paul passed along the information but did not glorify himself while telling people about it because he had his doubts if it was true or not. Verse 6, Paul did not want to be a fool if the story the man told was false. This was an incredible claim the man had made above the measure of the abundance of revelations that Paul knew were true. It did not fit to the teachings of Jesus. Verse 12 shows that followers of Jesus had been shown signs and Paul was aware of that. So he did glorify the man by putting his claim in scripture and telling people about it. He did not want to be the judge if this new information was right or wrong lest he be judged infirm in the truth. Since Paul had his doubts so do I. The lesson Paul is teaching is listen and accept visions people say they have only if the new revelations fit the whole body of the teachings of Jesus, the true words of God. People that want to glorify themselves instead of God are probably not telling the truth.

HE GOD REASSURES US THAT WHEN WE CANNOT FIGHT OUR BATTLE HE WILL STEP IN

 


Martin's comment about verse 2 on 9/25/2014, 9:49pm...

What does he mean when he says, such an one caught up to the third heaven. Could this mean that there was or is 3 different earth ages? Could there have been a earth age before the one that we are in now? I know that there is still one more to come.

this is one of my favorite verses to come to in times of trouble, it ALWAYS helps to renew my spirit and know GOD is behind in front with me!!

 


Matthew's comment on 7/10/2014, 3:40pm...

I like because this of Gods word speaks to me.

 


Bryan's comment about verse 8 on 4/14/2014, 1:03am...

Looks like Paul wanted the revelations to stop so the persecution would stop. God needed the revelation in the earth, and someone had to pay the price, just as all great reformers had done prior to Paul, and have since as well. 2 Cor 12 is about Revelations, not thorns.

If you re a true child of God no trouble can over take you Just when you think you is down your actually standing Because God perfect strength steps in and over take your situation you are no longer there it s all God

 


MockingBird's comment about verse 9 on 2/06/2014, 5:45am...

Truly the Grace of God is Amazing : to have saved a wretch like me. This passage in 2 Cor.12:9 is very meaning to me. I have prayed for this in many situations. God's strength is made perfect in my weakness : My Lord Jesus has proved it time and again. Thank God for faith and that I have a copy of His Word. I am truly Blessed to be a child of God.The Grace of God teaches me to deny ungodliness.Titus 2:11-13. Praise God !!!

GRACE IS NOT SOMETHING WE WORK

 


J. Sparks's comment about verse 12 on 12/08/2013, 11:29am...

A sign of those that would preach the Gospel, teach others, be a servant in the Kingdom of God...indeed takes Patience, a characteristic indeed and foremost of the spiritual servant.

 


Devon Leesley's comment about verse 15 on 11/17/2013, 6:45pm...

The more you develope the servant demeanor and you cultivate a heart of love for the brethren, you will experience much rejection. People will run from you.

 


Lee's comment about verse 10 on 11/15/2013, 1:25am...

my favorite scripture in the bible.

It is a very good Bible versus

 


Timothy Wayne George's comment about verse 9 on 10/15/2013, 6:04am...

Thank God that His grace is sufficient for every trial that comes our way. Even though Paul prayed three times for God to remove the thorn in the flesh, Jesus assured him that My grace is sufficient for thee. Most gladly will I boast in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may be upon me. God gets the glory when we praise Him through the storms of life. It is only then do we experience the grace of God to continue on to finish the race that God has given us, looking unto Jesus the Author, and finisher of our faith.

 


Jimmdick's comment about verse 9 on 8/23/2013, 1:36am...

Vividly,we are limited beings.After the fall of man in the garden of Eden,man only lives by the grace of God.By grace we are saved,by grace we are restored into fellowship and peace with God through the blood of His son on the cross at Calvary.Grace suffices us.Not our works.

 


Luke Henriques's comment on 8/22/2013, 6:16pm...

In my understanding the Apostle Paul was faithful in his calling of the Lord so much so that He sort the Lord with all his might and soul. This brought him to visions and understandings so wonderful that they could not be uttered without having to be boastful, so I feel the LORD as usual will have to capture our attention in order to accomplish His purposes in and through us . Thus a reminder from Satan that this is Not HEAVEN needed to be used in order to keep the Blessed Paul humble before God Almighty. I'm sure this happens to all of us who truly seek God with all our hearts souls and minds. For Our God is an Awesome GOD !

 


PAUL SHUFORD's comment about verse 2 on 5/01/2013, 8:20am...

no Paul was not talking about his Self he was talking about the angle that he saw at the time he was in the spirit such a one caught up to the third heaven.

 


Ben weaver's comment about verse 9 on 4/21/2013, 6:31am...

My grace is sufficient for you. I have heard that grace is divine enablement. Paul says; It is only by the grace of God, that I am what I am. It was Satan and his messenger that didn't want Paul and the abundance of revelations to be exhauled. I feel that the Lord was reminding Paul that he was already enabled to overcome the enemy's thorns, as Paul also implies in 2 Cor. 10:4; Our weapons are mighy through God to the pulling down of strong holds...Being in Christ, we are not to submit to the hindrances of Satan.

 


R. D. Mattock's comment on 3/22/2013, 11:06am...

What was Paul's thorn in the flesh. I have heard many things. Let scripture interpret scripture. Letís hear it from Paul own words. A MESSENGER FROM SATAN TO BUFFET ME. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. By the way, Paul calls these light afflictions.

 


Sophia Lawrence's comment about verse 2 on 3/05/2013, 7:47am...

Paul was talking about himself, but he used this phrase ďI knew a man in ChristĒ, so Paul did not know if he was in the body or in spirit he did not know. But no, flesh cannot go to heaven, so I think he was in the spirit and he should get a thorn in the flesh to be humble and not boast.

 


Shiko's comment on 2/21/2013, 5:37am...

Itís very normal to meet challenges up, but they should constantly remind us that we are chosen and unique united in the body of Christ. And we should never be afraid to call on His name.

 


Thandi Bhengu's comment about verse 9 on 1/23/2013, 10:47pm...

The easy way out of trouble is to force worship so that the power of God may manifest on our situation. The Lord dwelleth at the praises of His people. You can't rest in the presence of God and still be in trouble. Just rejoice always Philippians 4:4.

 


ELAINA WHITE's comment about verse 10 on 12/16/2012, 12:05pm...

GODís grace, HIS mercies are good enough for me. GOD loves me through it all. Where I am weak that is when God is the strongest. There is nothing too hard for God. I can do nothing without HIM.
