“For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise. But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you,” 2 Corinthians 10:12-13.
“For without the trials that I bring into My servant’s lives, they would be left defenseless.
For Paul would have gone on boasting about his revelations. He was given much in the way of revelation and of knowledge of My Kingdom.
Those who are given much are expected much. For I temper my servants. Otherwise those things that are given unto them, would cause them to be puffed-up with pride.
Who among you is great in their own eyes?
Who among you has received revelations that speak of what is to come?
Did those revelations proceed from yourselves or do you comprehend the origin of them?
I can take away what was given unto you and give it unto another.
For some of you are competing with one another. You think that the depth of your visions and the profound quality of your prophecies causes you to be considered great.
There is not a single person who has received all. I disperse My gifts unto many of My children and it is only by My grace that you now have what I have given unto you.
The only one to boast of is My Son; for He has given all. He gave His life as a ransom for many.
You are nothing without Him. I have sent My Son that He would be a life to all and that man would receive Him as My true Son.
But many who claim to speak for Me don’t truly know Him.
For as many as I have sent; they have become My sons. And I have sent them that they would speak of him.
But be assured, that I can bring down any man who boasts in himself. You see this all around you in the world. For I set men in office and yet I also bring them down. That throne of golden hues will be demolished.
You wanted someone to deliver you from the world’s ills and now all you see is chaos and corruption.
For boasting of what someone can do eventually causes that one to have a great fall. In the end all you have to see will be the shattered pieces.”
