    God's ALL-Sufficient GRACE in our infirmities:

    Grace And Peace to All Precious friend(s), Dear readers,
    and, diligent students of God's Holy Word! Praying Hopefully
    The Following Scriptures Will Bring God's "Peace, Hope, And
    Comfort" into your life in This Current Dispensation Of The
    Amazing GRACE Of A Wonderful God!:

    (1) In That GRACE, God, In HIS Omniscience, Had Already
    Chosen His Own In CHRIST, And Already Knew What
    "infirmities, trouble, trials, afflictions, sufferings, And
    persecutions we would go through,” And, Thank Him, He
    "Promised" He Will Never Give us more testing than
    we can handle. (Ephesians 1:4; 1 Corinthians 10:13)
    Amen?

    (2) Please, Precious friend(s):
    Thank God In {easy}, And, Also, For {Difficult?}, ALL things!
    (1 Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:20)

    (3) After Paul (our #"pattern"# for Today!), prayed 3 times
    for his affliction, the "Answer he Received," According To The
    Scriptures, Was:

    "And He {CHRIST} Said Unto me, MY GRACE Is Sufficient For
    thee: For MY Strength Is Made Perfect in weakness. Most gladly
    therefore will I rather glory {cp} in my infirmities, that The
    Power Of CHRIST
    May Rest Upon me!"
    (2 Corinthians 12:9) {cp 2 Corinthians 11:23-30}

    (4) "For our light affliction, which Is But For A Moment, worketh
    for us a Far More Exceeding And Eternal weight of glory; While
    we look Not at the things which are seen, but at the things
    Which Are Not Seen: for the things which are seen [are]
    temporal; but the things Which Are Not Seen Are Eternal!"
    (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)

    (5) "For I reckon that The Sufferings of this PRESENT Time
    are not worthy to be compared with The Glory which shall be
    revealed in us. For the earnest Expectation of the creature
    Waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God...

    ...ourselves also, which have The Firstfruits Of The Spirit,
    even we ourselves groan within ourselves, WAITING for
    The Adoption, to wit, The Redemption Of our body!"
    (Romans 8:18-19; Romans 8:23) Blessed Hope! Amen?

    (6) "Therefore being justified by faith, we have Peace with
    God through our LORD JESUS CHRIST: By Whom also we
    have access by faith into This GRACE Wherein we stand,
    and rejoice in Hope of The Glory of God.

    And not only so, but we glory {cp} in tribulations also: knowing
    that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience;
    and experience, Hope: And Hope maketh not ashamed; because
    The Love Of God Is Shed Abroad in our hearts By The Holy Ghost
    Which Is Given Unto us!"
    (Romans 5:1-5) {cp 2 Corinthians 11:23-30}

    (7!) ”And He That Searcheth the hearts Knoweth What Is The
    Mind Of The Spirit, Because HE Maketh Intercession for the
    saints According To The Will Of God. Likewise The Spirit Also
    Helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray
    for as we ought: But The Spirit Itself Maketh Intercession
    For us with groanings which cannot be uttered!”
    (Romans 8:27-28)

    (8!) "Blessed Be God, Even The Father Of our LORD JESUS CHRIST,
    The Father Of Mercies, And The God of All Comfort; Who Comforteth
    us in All our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which
    are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves Are
    Comforted Of God!" (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

    (9!) Please, always be “watching, Patiently waiting And Looking For”
    That Blessed Hope, The Imminent Return Of our LORD To Take us
    Home To Heaven, In Glorification! {Thus, Ending All of our
    "infirmities, trouble, trials, afflictions, sufferings, And persecutions!”}
    (Ephesians 6:18; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; 2 Corinthians 5:1-9;
    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) = WONDERFUL Comfort! Amen?

    (10) ”And we know That All things Work Together For Good To
    them that love God, to them who Are The Called According To
    His Purpose!” (Romans 8:28)

    (11a) Please memorize 2 Timothy 4:8:

    "Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness,
    which The LORD, The Righteous Judge, Shall Give me At That Day:
    and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His Appearing!"

    (11b) Please Prayerfully/Carefully study 1 Corinthians 3:7-15,
    And "know" that, At "That Day {The Judgment Seat}” Of CHRIST,
    In Heaven, All "good works of preaching The Gospel of GRACE,
    studying The Word Of Truth, Rightly Divided, and, loving/helping others"
    WILL Surely Be "rewarded As gold, silver, And precious stones!"
    Amen?

    (12) For ALL those who humbly:
    Trust CHRIST As their Personal Saviour, The Bible Says:

    a): “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of
    power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
    (2 Timothy 1:7)

    b): “Be careful [anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by
    prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests
    be made known unto God. And the Peace Of God, Which Passeth
    all understanding, Shall Keep your hearts and minds through
    CHRIST JESUS.

    Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are True, whatsoever
    things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever
    things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever
    things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there
    be any praise, think on these things.”
    (Philippians 4:6-8)

    c): # “Those things, which ye have both learned, and
    received, and heard, and seen in me, [Paul!] do: # And
    The God Of Peace Shall Be With you.”
    (Philippians 4:9)

    Conclusion, for All of the “just who live By Faith” {Not feelings…}:

    "For unto you It Is Given in the Behalf Of CHRIST, not only
    to believe on HIM, But Also to suffer for HIS Sake"
    (Philippians 1:29)
    ------------------------------
    Again, Precious friend(s), please, Always:

    Be Very RICHLY Comforted In The LORD And Saviour, JESUS CHRIST!

    GRACE And Peace...

    Not even a single quote from the very teachings of Jesus Christ concerning the essence of the Grace that He embodied?

    Beg your pardon?

    "If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to

    WHOLESOME WORDS, Even THE WORDS OF our LORD JESUS CHRIST,


    And to the doctrine which is according to godliness;" (1_Timothy_6:3 KJB!)

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with the OP. It is in line with the teachings of the Gospels.

    John 1:14-17 (KJV) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¹⁴ And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. ¹⁵ John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. ¹⁶ And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. ¹⁷ For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

    Precious friend, so the Words Of The Glorified LORD JESUS, That He
    Directly "Revealed TO His Gentile apostle" Paul, From Heaven,
    In
    Romans Through Philemon, FOR us, are not Considered to be:

    "HIS Word Of Truth!"? Should They
    then be "Taken Out
    Of Gods Word Of Truth,"
    and Not "studied"? If not,
    Then HOW is one going to be:

    "Approved Unto God"? (2_Timothy_2:15 KJB!)

    Be Blessed!

    Directly revealed from Heaven to contradict the very teachings of Jesus Christ which He gave us while He was here on Earth with us?

    Throughout His teaching, Jesus Christ implies that Faith is in a reward of one's acceptance and obedience of the commandments/teachings of Jesus Christ, and it is only through this that one can be made a Son of God, meaning the Righteous live by accepting(trusting) and obeying the commandments/teachings of Jesus Christ.
    So, if you come upon teaching or an "interpretation" that does not concur with the very Teachings of Jesus Christ Himself, shouldn't one opt to follow Jesus Christ's teaching rather than the other which seems to contradict the very Word of God that He gave us while He was here on earth with us?

    No, Not to contradict, But To Give us God's New And Different Message!
    More "study" here: New and here: Different!


    Ok, since you opted, let us check and see how well you are doing, oK, Kobo?:

    (1) Have you SOLD ALL that you have, given it to the poor, And taken up your
    cross, and follow Jesus, According To HIS Command, "which He gave us while He was here on Earth"?:

    Mark_10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow ME.

    (2) Have you PRAYED FOR, believed, AND Received Everything you asked for, According To HIS Command, "which He gave us while He was here on Earth"?:

    Matthew_21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

    (3) Do you "observe ALL things HE Has Commended, Including The
    LAW Of Moses, According To HIS Command,
    "which He gave us
    while He was here on Earth"?:

    Matthew_28:20 Teaching them to Observe ALL
    things whatsoever I Have Commanded
    you:..."
    +
    Mat 23:1 Then Spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
    Mat 23:2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
    Mat 23:3 ALL therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that
    Observe and DO
    ; but do not ye after their works: for

    they say, and do not
    . Kobo, please advise...

    And, be Blessed!

    Different from the very teachings of Jesus Christ on Earth? If Two "Truths" are different doesn't that mean they do not go together?
    Done that. I had to give it all up in obedience.
    I ask Him for everything I need, yes. He did say "...ye shall receive" so I believe I will received, yes!
    Jesus Christ never commanded you to follow the Law of Moses(Old Covenant). The Old Covenant is a Covenant between God and those of the blood of Jacob for the land of Israel. And as Jesus Christ made clear, He fulfilled the Old Covenant requirements on behalf of those of Jewish descent who would choose to take on the light yoke and easy burden that is Jesus Christ, the New Covenant instead of continuing to carry the heavy yoke and burden of the Old Covenant.

    I was born a gentile, so I was never bound to the Law of Moses/Old Covenant. Instead, I am bound by the New Covenant Law that is Jesus Christ. So if you meant to ask whether I accept(trust) and obey all the over 50 something commandments of the New Covenant, Jesus Christ, then yes, I do accept(trust) and obey the commandments/teachings of Jesus Christ.

    The New Covenant comes complete with its own set of blessings, curses, promises, seal, and commandments, much like the Old Covenant. If you are looking, you can find some of the New Covenant commandments listed at the following link but be warned cause the list is not comprehensive. What are the commands of Christ?

    Exactly the point! Christ's words, on the earth, Under Prophecy and Law,
    do Not go together With CHRIST's Wholesome Words, From Heaven,
    the preaching of JESUS CHRIST, According To:

    The Revelation Of HIS Mystery
    , Under PURE GRACE!

    Q: Have you SOLD ALL?
    Sold ALL, Under the Previous Dispensation of Law? Then, HOW do you
    obey What is Different , Today, Under Today's Dispensation Of Grace?:

    2_Thessalonians_3:10 "For even when we were with you, this we
    commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat."
    +
    1_Thessalonians_4:11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your
    own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
    +
    1_Timothy_5:8 "But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those
    of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel."

    So, Truth is:
    "SELL ALL" and, "work/provide for others" Do Not Go Together!
    Very amazing, everyone else I have met, and I, must be lost, even though
    we Are Saved By GRACE Through faith, because we have prayed/believing,
    and we HAVE NOT RECEIVED EVERYTHING "we have asked for." NO, this
    has not happened for us. And, after "studying" our Bibles Correctly, Rightly
    Dividing God's Word Of Truth,
    the Difference in our prayers, Now, Under
    God's GRACE,
    is found in numbers's 4, 7, and 12 in my OP!

    So, Truth is: "knowing what to pray for/believing/receiving healing"
    Does Not Go Together With:
    "knowing Not what to pray for/receiving GRACE for infirmities!"

    Bravo, now that is Truth! HE Never Commanded me! TOTALLY agree, however,
    HE Did Command you, As Has Already "Been Clearly Shown," because you
    ARE THE ONE who stated:
    Q: Do you obey ALL That CHRIST, on the earth, Commanded? No?:

    So, you skirt the "obedience to Moses Law" issue, That CHRIST, on the earth,
    Clearly Commanded The TWELVE and the disciples, in
    your "Great commission"
    that you Opted into, By OPTING OUT of it, AND Then OPTING INTO:
    Now that my Precious Kobo, is Impossible, Because, According To Scripture:

    Jeremiah_31:31 "Behold, the days come, Saith the LORD, that I will make
    a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:"

    Which, is Still YET FUTURE, Because:

    Romans_11:7 "What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he
    seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded!"
    +
    After The Second Coming of CHRIST, AND "Israel's Blindness" is Lifted!:

    Romans_11:26 "And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written,
    There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away
    ungodliness from Jacob:"

    Which Fulfils THIS!:

    "Therefore say unto the house of Israel, ... For I will take you from
    among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring
    you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and
    ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will
    I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I
    put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
    and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you,
    and
    Cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments,
    and do them
    ." (
    Ezekiel_36:22, 24-27 KJB! )

    Thus, God Has NO "new covenant" Today, With
    the Gentiles
    {as you claim you are}, but, to those who are humble, and realize
    The Law they are "bound Under," CONDEMNS them to an
    ETERNAL Condemnation, HE Does Offer HIS PURE GRACE,
    and, by:

    simple faith In HIM, HIS Precious BLOOD, And HIS Resurrection,
    According To The Scriptures, HE Graciously Bestows HIS FREE Gift
    Of ETERNAL
    Life!
    (Ephesians_2:8-9; 1_Corinthians_15:3-4; Romans_3-5 KJB!)

    Then
    {NOT in fifty commands...}:
    those
    Eternal "members" Of The Body Of CHRIST, "Fulfill ALL The Law IN ONE
    Word: LOVE thy neighbor as thyself!" (
    Galatians_5:6, 14; Romans_13:8-10 KJB!)

    Conclusion: Truth Is: Salvation By GRACE
    and "works salvation"

    Do Not Go Together
    !:

    "And if by GRACE, then is it no more of works: otherwise GRACE is no
    more GRACE. But if it be of works, then is it no more GRACE: otherwise
    work is no more work!"
    (Romans_11:6 KJB!)

    Be Blessed!

    Was this revelation of Christ from Heaven to you? A Gospel that negates the very New Covenant that Jesus Christ taught to His Disciple, telling them to preach that to all of the world? How did you get that?

    What? Please try to visit the 4 Gospels when you want to learn what Jesus Christ, the New Covenant, in fact taught as the Gospel of the Kingdom while He was here on Earth.

    Jesus Christ did not ask anyone to divide anything. He simply asked you to trust and obey His teachings/commandments, as documented in the 4 Gospels. He sent His disciples out to teach to the world the very same teachings He taught them... the New Covenant, the Law in the Kingdom of God - no dividing called for. And it is those who believe and obey that are called Sons of God.

    Truth has nothing to do with knowing what to pray for. Jesus Christ said in His teachings that ALL THINGS whatsoever you ask, believing, you will recieve. And the same Jesus Christ also commands that all those who accept(trust) and obey His teachings/commandments, He will abide in, and they can ask anything in His Name, and He will do it. So, His Truth is His teaching, the very New Covenant that He brought to you.

    Jesus Christ never commanded you to obey the Law of Moses/Old Covenant. The Law of Moses is a separate Covenant from the New Covenant(Jesus Christ) which you are commanded by Jesus Christ to Obey.
    So, do I accept(trust) and obey the New Covenant commandments/teachings of Jesus Christ? Absolutely.

    I am afraid you are quite mistaken. I was not born a Jew but a Gentile. And according to Deuteronomy 30, you are told clearly mind you, that the Old Covenant was an agreement between God and His people Israel(those of the blood of Jacob). Since I am not of that blood, God Himself disqualified me from partaking in that agreement.

    The Covenant was announced to the House of Israel, and Jesus Christ is it. Jesus Christ fulfilled His mission to the House of Israel when He died and was raised from the dead. It was then that Jesus Christ, sent His disciples into the World to extend the same Covenanant to entire World, fulfilling God's plan to bless the nations of the world through the descendant of Abraham.

    So yes, Jesus Christ is the Covenant that God promised the people of Israel in Jeremiah 31 vs 31 -34. That same covenant has been extended to us by the person of Jesus Christ after He was risen.

    Remember that God Himself said of Abraham, that He would bless Him because he, Abraham, obeyed God's words, doing what God commanded, keeping His commands, law, and rules.
    Genesis 26
    Now there was a famine. This was like the famine that happened during Abraham’s life. So Isaac went to the town of Gerar, to King Abimelech of the Philistines. 2 The Lord spoke to Isaac and said, “Don’t go down to Egypt. Live in the land that I commanded you to live in.
    3 Stay in this land, and I will be with you. I will bless you. I will give you and your family all these lands. I will do what I promised to Abraham your father.
    4 I will make your family as many as the stars of heaven, and I will give all these lands to your family. Through your descendants[a] every nation on earth will be blessed.
    5 I will do this because your father Abraham obeyed my words and did what I said. He obeyed my commands, my laws, and my rules.”

    Jesus Christ teaches that all those who are His will do the exact same... accept(trust) and obey His teachings/commandments in order to become Sons of God. Jesus Christ made it clear that those who refuse to obey His commandments do not love Him and He will not abide in them.
    If whatever it is you believe in does not include accepting(trust) and obeying the teachings/commandments given to you by the New Covenant Himself, how can you expect to enjoy that which He has given to those who love Him?

    Precious friend, yes, to Paul AND me {lost Gentile}, to become a "member" of
    The Body Of CHRIST, Seated In Heaven! = God's Simple Will for me.

    If you do not accept
    This Simple Truth In Love, presented to you, then,
    it is time for me to go, Precious friend! (Romans_16:17 KJB!) Good Bye!

    Paul, the one you have chosen to pitch your tent with, is a mere human being, still in his grave, sleeping, waiting for Jesus Christ to return and judge his works here on earth, just a Jesus Christ said He would the works of every one of those who believe in Him. Every one of our works here will be judged on whether it was done in obedience to the commandments of Jesus Christ.

    Jesus Christ, the one who is the Word(Truth) of God is the only one in Heaven today, and It is by His Truth(teachings) - His Word is like fire, declared Jeremiah- that your works on this earth will be tried to decide whether it is acceptable and True.
