Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds. 2 Co 12:12
Give particular heed to the fact that Paul here places patience before signs, wonders and mighty deeds. And no wonder, for signs and mighty wonders can be falsified and reproduced.
And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceives them that dwell on the earth by those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast…Rev 13:13,14.
The one thing that Satan cannot overcome is the patience of the saints.
He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. Rev 13:10.
So many claim to have a great vision for how they will build up the kingdom of God, but the glory we seek is obtained by patient continuance in well-doing.
To those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, He will give eternal life. Romans 2:7.
In your patience possess ye your souls. Luke 21:19.
