The 1+1 Sequence as as Model for the Number 2

 

God used the 1+1  sequence model throughout the Bible in a variety of ways. God used a version of the 1+1 model I call the 1 and 1 sequence. As a version of the 1+1 model, this version has 2 parameters which ares 1 and 1. God  used this method  to address 1 person as the point man for a covenant or communication. One example among the many can be seen with the covenants that He has made with people in the Bible . When God made covenants with people in the Bible, He used His One Concept. God only made covenants with One person initially as 1 and 1.

 Later, God  would extend His covenant through that 1 person  to other people..

Yahweh and Adam (1+1)

Almighty 1+1 - Adam

God created Adam and Eve  and gave them instructions on what to do and how to live. For example, in Genesis  1:26-30, the Bible notes:

 

26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30  And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

 

This is an example of the covenant that God made with Adam and Eve.  God also gave them instructions concerning the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  If Adam and Eve had of kept the covenant they would have lived forever.

Yahweh and Noah (1  +  1)

For instance, when God decided to flood the world  because of the evil of mankind, He decided to save Noah and His family. God made a covenant with only One man when He did this.


In Genesis 6:17-18, God told Noah:


"17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee."

In Genesis 9:9, again, God spoke to Noah about His covenant with him.


"9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;

God fulfilled His Word and destroyed the earth but He saved Noah and his family whom He had made a covenant with (1+1)

Yahweh and Abraham  (1+ 1)

God called Abraham out of the country of his kindred into a Promised Land. In the Promised Land, God told Abraham that He would give him the land and make him the father of many nations. God told Abraham, that through him all of the nations of the world would be blessed. God sealed the deal by making a covenant with just one man, Abraham.

 

The Land Covenant


In Genesis 15:18-21, the Bible states:

"18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites."


Father of Many Nations


In Genesis 17:1-4, the Bible states:

"1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations."

In the Bible, God enforced the covenant with

Isaac - son of Abraham

Jacob - Son of Isaac and so forth

Moses and Israel

Yahweh and Moses (1 +  1)

When Yahweh decided to deliver Israel from Egypt, He chose One man named Moses.  He gave His commandments to Moses and Moses delivered them to the people of Israel (1 and 1).

In Exodus 24:4-8, the Bible states:

"4 And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
5 And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the LORD.
6 And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient.
8 And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words."

In Exodus 34:27-28, God speaks of the Covenant between Himself, Moses and Israel

27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.
28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments."


Moses was the point man and God used him to inform and implement His covenant with Israel.

Yahweh and David

Almighty 1+ 1- David

God also made a covenant with King David with respect to the destiny of His throne. In 2 Samuel 7:8-18, God spoke to David via the prophet Nathan:

 

8: Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel:

9: And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.

10: Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,

11: And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. Also the LORD telleth thee that he will make thee an house.

12: And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.

13: He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.

14: I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:

15: But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

16: And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.

17: According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

18: Then went king David in, and sat before the LORD, and he said, Who am I, O Lord GOD? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?

Yahweh and Jesus (1 + 1)

God promised to send a messiah to Israel who would establish His word and issue in an era of Salvation. God sent various prophets to the people telling them of a the messiah and a new covenant. When God decided  to fulfill His Word, He made  a covenant with just One person, Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah.

 

In Isaiah 42:1-6, the Bible speaks about the coming Messiah:


"1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;"

In Isaiah 49:8, God again speaks about the covenant He will establish with the Messiah and the people.

"8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;"

In Isaiah 59:19-21, the again the Bible speaks of the covenant with the Messiah and His followers.

19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever."


In John 1:29-34, the prophet John identifies the Messiah.

"29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.
32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God."


God made gave Jesus as a sacrifice for sin (1 and 1). It is through the blood of Jesus that sins of many men will be forgiven.

 

Again, this is just one subject matter where God used His 1 and 1 sequence. The bible contains an array of examples where God used this numbering method.

Christ Letter to the Angels of each of the Seven Churches

In the book of Revelation, Christ wrote letters to  seven churches. Christ wrote the letters to one person in each of the churches. Christ wrote the letters to the angel (messenger) of the church. This is another example of the 1 and 1 sequence in the Bible.

In this vision the angels of the seven churches are represented as  seven stars  in the right hand of Christ.

In Revelation 1:20, the Bible states:

"20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches."

Then Christ begins His 1 to 1 contact with each of the seven churches:

Revelation 2:1, notes:
"1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;"

In Revelation 2:8, Jesus commanded John to write:
"8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;"

Revelation 2:12

"12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;"

Revelation 2:18

"18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;"

Revelation 3:1


"1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead."

Revelation 3:7

"7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;"


Revelation 3:14

"14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;"

 

Again, Christ made a 1 to 1 contact with the head of each of the seven churches (1+1).  After Christ wrote the letters to each of the seven angels, it was up to them to convey His message to their congregations.  It was up to Him to oversee the changes that God called for in each of the churches.
