  • Elijah on 2 Corinthians 12
    How did God answer Paul's second letter to the Corinthians chapter 12:7-12?

    Hi elijah.

    if you are referring to this section of the passage. ( for this thing i besought the lord thrice, that it might depart from me.)

    your answer is right here in the following.

    and he said unto me, my grace is sufficient for thee: ( for my strength is made perfect in weakness. ) most gladly therefore will i rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of christ may rest upon me.

    god bless.

    I believe that Paul spent 2-3 years in Arabia after his conversion where He received the gospel message and the scope of the faith from direct revelation from Jesus, Himself. He then returned to Antioch, and from there was James, Peter, and (I believe) John, where they all compared notes on how they preached the gospel. They agreed that Paul and Barnabas was preaching the same gospel as they were taught by Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

    Oops, meant to say that after 14 years of preaching to the gentile areas, Paul and Barnabas went to Jerusalem and met with the leaders of the church there. Upon earing what Paul was preaching and teaching, they all agreed that their gospels were the same.

    Apparently, somehow, that got deleted.

    Dear "Elijah" Paul learned from the Holy Spirit all the time. 1 Chorintihans 12:10 herefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

    Paul also have a burden to the 2 Chorintihans 12:20 20 For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:

    Maybe u think 2 Chorintihans 13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

    I'll think that Paul have trials like us. But this angel who God put on him was aways remembering him too stay in the Lords blessing and command always all day and night. At the werry last he tell in

    Galatians 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

    But in Acts 28:30 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,

    At last Paul get his own place, and could Acts 28:31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

    This words may be mixed up by me, i'll think Paul's work was done here in Act's May someone here in the web have another answer.

    Paul always wright and describes his service like this 2 Corinthians 11:27

    In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

    Be blessed in the holy name Jesus Christ, Ephesians 5:17-24 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

    18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

    19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

    20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
