NOTE: As most of you readers know, this assignment of producing a Bible Numeric Interlinear Greek NT based on the two texts of Panin, was initially dropped into my lap in the summer of 1944, shortly after the Lord revealed Himself to me as a sailor in the Canadian Navy. Further illumination came in the Fall of 1945; this took on an added impetus from God in 1967; and finally came into a workable format in the Fall of 2007.
I wouldn't blame any of you for taking little interest in this project. I am personally making excellent use of it, and should I be the only one ever to appreciate and use it - it would still be worth while.
However, in 2009 it received added impetus, when the Lord reminded me of a vision He gave me in 1967 for “Spiritual Star Wars” - an AutomatedLaser-Telescope made up of 7 component parts. Part One was the major piece of this instrument, a globe of some 400 pounds full of dials and lights in the vision. I was informed, “This is the Interlinear Greek NT you are preparing on the basis of Ivan Panin's two texts.” The second component part I was also having a part in - but not the last 5. It wasn't till 2009 that He shared their meaning with me. Without all 7 component parts in satisfactory working order, Spiritual Star Wars will not become effective in the gates of cities.
We have seen smatterings of this taking place, but this year will see a multiplication of the effect in various cities in “Cascadia” - the Pacific NW - especially in the State of Washington. My friend Elvin Gladney will be taking the lead responsibility for these Elderships in the Gates of various Cities. Pray for him and his team. Already he has had unusual results in Tanzania and Kenya this summer with Felix Anderson.
So - the Bible Numeric Interlinear Greek NT based on Panin's prodigious work - is of prime importance, though in the beginning I was unaware of God's thinking in this direction.
Those of you who sense God's call upon you to be a part of these prayer groups - much like Acts 13:1-3; Acts 15; and Boaz in the book of Ruth - will find like me that this component part of the Automated Laser-Telescope is of prime importance.
It is through Elvin Gladney that a friend of his in Washington State feels God's call upon himself to have this project completed through a printed edition. I have but 8 chapters of the Gospel of Matthew to complete, plus the Gospels of Mark and Luke. This year should see the completion, which started 66 years ago.
Again, your prayers will be much appreciated for all present facets of this project. My notes will notappear in the finished work. It is the Word of God that counts - not human enlightenment upon it. Such are more like commentaries and traditions, and have a tendency to make void the Word of God.
Fortunately, the Section, Paragraph, Subdivision and Sentence outlines that appear as part of the text, do throw insight and light. However, even here, these summaries are notinspired; and for this reason I leave a space above each. Feel completely clear to cross out my summaries and substitute your own.
For today's section above, I have no specific notes. Here you can make use of the summaries above. Note however in 20:22 that Jesus here makes use of the plural form of “you”, which shows up in the Greek, but not the translation. He say, “You” (James and John) do not know what you ask. Jesus knew that their mother was merely expressing the wish and desire of the two brothers, her sons. J.A.W.
