PAUL’S VISIONS AND HIS THORN
1 I must go on boasting. Though there is nothing to be gained by it, I will go on to visions and revelations of Yahuah. 2 I know a many in Yahusha who fourteen years ago was caught up to a third heaven – whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, Yahuah knows. 3 And I know that this man was caught up into paradise – whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, Yahuah knows – 4 and he heard things that cannot be told, which man may not utter. 5 On behalf of this man I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except my weaknesses. 6 Though if I should wish to boast, I would not be a fool, for I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain from it, so that no one may think more of me than he sees in me or hears from me. 7 So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. 8 Three times I pleaded with Yahuah about this, that it should leave me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that l the power of Yahusha may rest upon me. 10 For the sake of Yahusha, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
We all have a thorn and we all have weaknesses. The devil wants us in hell, not with the Father so he torments those of us who spread the gospel and will do so until our end.
He has many tools like depression, Bipolar, physical problems and many other devices that he uses to completely destroy our faith in the Father and His Son Yahusha! Remember if the Father seems not to be answering our prayers? Remember Paul who was closer to Yahuah than most men and was told that the Father’s Grace was good enough for him. Paul died with this demon and so will we.
Our faith will be tested over and over again. So please pray for each other constantly.
2 Corinthians 12:7
“And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.”
We will suffer for His namesake that is a fact! He told us that if we remained faithful to the end He would reward us with everlasting life with Him! So don’t give up! Remain faithful! Sometimes He will help us when we fall and keep us going no matter who comes against us, we will prevail! Don’t think for one minuet that you will get through this without suffering! Remember Job and Moses and many like them suffered but the reward was everlasting life with our Father! Pray for one another and for myself, I can only hope He will take me soon!
This world has nothing to offer us that could compare to what the Father has in store for us!
Let His will be done in our lives!
For those who endure to the end, we will gain the rewards He has to offer! As for those who do not do His will! They will also be rewarded but their reward will not be pleasant!
Praise His holy name to time indefinite!
Call on the Holy Spirit when you are in need of comfort!
Bless you all in the name of Yahusha!!
