The Number Two

The number two in the Bible number reference is: union, division.
Deu 17:6  At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.

Two witnesses were needed by the law to confirm something. For the Christian, we have the word of God and the Spirit of God to confirm truth. Unity is stronger than two opposing each other. A marriage in which two are in agreement is better than one with strife and jealousy.
Pro 18:22  Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.

Pro 21:19  It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.

I knew a man who would tell a joke about his marriage to a bitter wife. "First comes the ring and then the suffering."
2Co 6:14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
2Co 6:15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

 In witnessing on AOL in the chats often the people of darkness will unite against one who speaks the truth of God. Do not fear them, a spirit filled Christian is greater than a multitude of devils. Speak the word by the Holy Spirit.
1Jn 4:4  Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
In the end times, two witnesses will stand before the powers of the antichrist.
Rev 11:3  And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Rev 11:4  These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Rev 11:5  And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
Rev 11:6  These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
Rev 11:7  And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
Rev 11:8  And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Rev 11:9  And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
Rev 11:10  And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Rev 11:11  And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

Those two door to door witnesses we see, are following a Bible pattern, but be sure you are of the truth and not a cult if you go out witnessing.
Mar 6:7  And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;

There is power in the Lord and two that are in agreement,  witness by the power of God with Jesus in their midst.
Mat 18:20  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

 A final thought about our nation that is divided. The flag pledge says "indivisable, with justice for all". Only by being one nation under the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, will we be one nation under God, indivisable, with justice. In Christ we are not to be divided. We are a spiritual union of people, together in one accord. Avoid those who would divide us. Be in union with God for eternity.
