~ Paul's Vision

2Co 12:1  It is not expedient for me [Paul] doubtless to glory.  I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.

2Co 12:2  I knew a man in Christ above fourteen [14] years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

2Co 12:3  And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)

2Co 12:4  How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.

2Co 12:5  Of such an one will I [Paul] glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities.

2Co 12:6  For though I [Paul] would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.

~ A Thorn in the Flesh

2Co 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.

2Co 12:8  For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.

2Co 12:9  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.

2Co 12:10  Therefore 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.

2Co 12:11  I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing.

2Co 12:12  Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

2Co 12:13  For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches [ congregations ], except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you?  forgive me this wrong.

2Co 12:14  Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.

2Co 12:15  And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.

2Co 12:16  But be it so, I did not burden you: nevertheless, being crafty, I caught you with guile.

2Co 12:17  Did I make a gain of you by any of them whom I sent unto you?

2Co 12:18  I desired Titus, and with him I sent a brother.  Did Titus make a gain of you?  walked we not in the same spirit?  walked we not in the same steps?

2Co 12:19  Again, think ye that we excuse ourselves unto you?  we speak before God in Christ: but we do all things, dearly beloved, for your edifying.

2Co 12:20  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:

2Co 12:21  And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.
