Two Are Better Than One


1. Revelation 13:18 (13:11-18) THE BEGINNING. “Who has understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his :number is Six hundred sixty six” (NNT). Which comes first? The chicken or the egg? But which comes first? Man the Discoverer - or God the Revealer? See how God through Ivan Panin combined in 1890 to send help to the man through a Presbyterian minister. Hallowed be Your :name.

2. John 1:1 (1-18) FURTHER PRODDING. “In thebeginning the Word was, and the Word was with :God, and the Word was God.” God chooses each of us as individuals because of the particular genes and DNA He had placed in each one of us at birth. God knewwhat Panin would do when he discovered the differences between “God” with an article - and “God” without one! Panin looked up every NT reference to this, and further was captivated with the uniqueness of his discovery. Your :kingdom come!

3. John 20:27-28 (20:26-29) JESUS: VERY :GOD OF VERY :GOD - PLUS SON OF MAN! “Then said Jesus to :Thomas, Reach here your :finger, and see my :hands; and reach your :hand, and put itinto my :side: and be not unbelieving, but believing. 28Thomas answered and said to him, My :Lord and my :God.” God knows how to use the intricacies of His Word to prove His truth to unbelievers. God used Mrs. Mesheimer to bring me to a Jehovah's Witness meeting, and with this passage silence the leader! By this I followed unknowingly in the path of Panin. Your :will be done, As in heaven, so on earth.

4. Isaiah 66:2b (66:1-4) A CORRECT “WORD” ATTITUDE. “But to this man will I look says Jehovah, even to him that is poorand of a contrite spirit, and that trembles at my word.” There are not many who honor God like Isaiah and Panin, and treat Him and His Word in this reverent and humble manner. Thiswas one of Panin's favorite verses from all of Scripture! Our :daily :bread give us this day.

5. Mark 16:19-20 (16:9-20) A PRIME GOD-MARKED SECTION. “So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into :heaven, and sat down at the right handof :God. 20And THEY went forth, andpreached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed.” God knew that the day would come when the Bible Textual Critics, especially from Germany - would need to be put in their place. The last 12 verses of Mark stand out as the main target of Textual Critics - but alsoof God's Numerics! And forgive us our :debts, as we also have forgiven our :debtors.

6. Matthew 1:18 (1:18-25) MATTHEW CHAPTER ONE. “Now the birth of :Jesus Christ was thus: His :mother Mary, betrothed to :Joseph, before they came together, was found with child of theHoly Spirit.” Matthew chapter 1, would take a man 100 years to write, so that it contained the unusual and extraordinary Bible Numerics here that Panin discovered in the Greek text. But - because everyGreek NT chapter contains such unusual configuration, it would mean that every NT chapter would have to be the last one written - if all features would be present. Impossiblewith man. Then Godis the author through men! And bring us not into temptation!

7. Genesis 1:1 (1:1-2:3) THE OLD TESTAMENT TOO! “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Turn to our Website <www.2rbetter.org>and click on “Archives”. Scroll down to 2011.01.22 - to “Cutting Edge Ministries on Panin”. Under “Back to Bible Numerics” - there you will find a quotation by Karl Sabiers, showing the same unique Numeric Features in the OT Hebrew, just as they appear in the complete NT Greek. And bring us not into temptation!

NOTE: Philippians 4:8 (4:8-9) HOW TO SEE GOD'S WORD! “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things arehonest, whatsoever things arejust, whatsoever things arepure, whatsoever things arelovely, whatsoever things areof goodreport; if there be any virtue, and if there beany praise, think on these things”(KJV). Amy Hong Sit of Houston, Texas set these words to the tune of “do - re - mi” in “Sound of Music”, plus many other Bible verses to classical and popular tunes. The Salvation Army did the same in their beginning days. I see this verse as an excellent counterpart to this Interlinear Gr. NT.

Briefly - let me recount to you how Godconnected mewith His Bible Numerics through Ivan Panin. First, in the Fall of 1942 He spoke to me in my spirit in my unsaved state, and directed me from Psalm 107:23-24 to join the Canadian Navy. In the next month or so, Panin died in Aldershot, Ontario, just south of Hamilton. This was to prepare me following my conversion in 1944, to hear the challenge from Russian Jew Dr. Jewell - to study the works of Ivan Panin! See the timingof God!

In 1945 I felt led to purchase all the writings “on” or “by” Ivan Panin, while attending Bible College in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. God knew my genetic predisposition for outlining. So He led me to read the Introduction to Panin's Numeric Greek NT printed by the Oxford Press of England. My discovery there that Bible Numerics revealed God's structure in the NT for each sentence, sub-paragraph, paragraph and section or chapter equivalent - hookedme. I outlined the Book of Ephesians according to this structure, and was so captivated that I typed up Panin's entire English NT translated by himself from his Greek text, copied by hand the entire Greek text underneath it according to the clause and sentence structure, and then outlined the entire Interlinear Greek NT.

In 2000 my oldest son set me up with a Website.

In 2007 my 3rdgrandson set up my website with data processing to undergird it - for typing up the interlinear text on computer.

In 2008 my wife Marie gave me a laptop for my birthday to expedite this process, and my grandson put it on Linux Software to more adequately handle the more difficult Interlinear process.

In 2009 a friend put me in touch with a Printer, who like Panin and myself, felt God directing him to put the Interlinear into print. I finished typing through the laptop the complete Interlinear MS by December 31, 2010. The first book for MS proof-reading should be in my hands shortly. You can presently go to our Website under “Interlinear” - and there find the complete Interlinear text plus my personal notes, which will not appear in the printed copy.

The above - are only the high lights of God's revelation and leading in all of this. He is leading in a “Team-effort”! It is not Panin or me, it is God and His team of some 10 or more individuals having part in this - a number not even mentioned in this brief survey.

In the vision of 1967, the Lord is the Observatory Director who revealed that the “Number One” Component Part of His Organic Laser-Telescope - was “HisBible Numeric OutlinedInterlinear Greek NT.” All of us as team members have but like Panin discoveredGod's purpose in all of this!

Allseven component parts are essential- but this first part is indeed Number One, Unique, Reserved by God for these Last Days, and guarded by Him for production until now.

Join with me then in fully supporting the purposes of God to see this through to completion - and then integrally having its part in removing Satan's principalities and powers over cities, regions, nations, and then the world!
