    If any man that has superpowers by that I mean can bring lightning down from the skies at will and speaks like no one you have ever heard before and speaks in peace as in world peace and calls himself God and sits in Jerusalem. Not even if he says he will fly you away. Don't Go! When the 7th trump sounds and hail stones hit with the fire you will be alright because you waited for the true Christ.

    Acts 9:23-25; 2 Cor. 11:32-33; How can anyone read these 2 scriptures and think they are of 2 different incidents .....? 2 Cor. is a RECOUNTING of Acts 9. Just as vs. 24 -27 are a recounting of PAST sufferings.

    To the comment below this makes these Jews Anti-Christian.
  • As a "chaste virgin to Christ " Paul feared that the Corinthians would revert back to their former ways before they came into the knowledge of the truth. Prior to that time, they have been deceived just as Eve was!
