NOTE: This chapter is an integral part with the preceding one. In the light of this, a friend asked me: “In preparing the Interlinear Greek NT based on the Bible Numerics discovered and utilized by Ivan Panin in his Greek and English Numeric NT's - what 'new' insight has the Lord given you? By 'new' I mean, is there anything that you thought about, but now after producing much of the Interlinear Greek NT - you see it differently? Is there anything the Lord has shown you that is completely new? Is there any concept, doctrine, principle that you've changed your opinion about?”
My answer to that is as follows: The reason I accepted the commission from God to prepare Panin's two NT texts into an interlinear format was because of his introduction to the Greek Numeric NT, which I purchased and read in the Fall of 1945 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. When I read that Bible Numerics evenestablishes the current sentence structure, sub-divisions, paragraphs and sections (chapter equivalents) - I was hooked. I can't rest in studying a text until I outline it. I prepare for all university exams this way. So I thought, which book of the NT shall I outline to see what difference may show up? Ephesians was my answer. I summarized each sentence; gathered up the sentence summaries into sub-divisions; the sub-divisions into paragraphs; the paragraphs into sections, and the sections into books. When I completed doing this with Ephesians, I seemed to walk above the ground for the next few weeks! Not only is there no chapter-break between Ephesians 1 and 2 in the Numeric discovery - but there is not even a paragraph division: just a sentence division! This throws an entirely “new” light on the Holy Spirit's thinking through Paul, as He led him to write this and his other 13 books!
By 1967 I had typed up Panin's entire English NT, and copied by hand between the clauses - his Greek text. I had by then summarized the entire NT according to the Numeric- guided divisions. However - by putting this on computer according to the new format my grandson and I settled on in 2007, a much greater clarity has come. It is this increased clarity of seeing contexts that I marvel at. Each section I prepare and each book I complete (24 out of 27 to date), I again marvel at this clarity. It seems to produce spin-offs, that enable me to receive revelation, insights, and understanding of questions I have long put before the Lord, but not until now have the answers been rapidly coming.
For instance, in 1967 I sought the Lord for the reason from His point of view that He had Marie and me marry. He showed us that “Two Are Better than One”, and in 1967 He gave me two visions concerning this. The first concerned the Automated Laser-Telescope that He told me to name “Spiritual Star Wars”. The second, the City Church Prayer potential through a corporate cell group of 8 in the Gate of each city.
But in the first vision He only revealed two of the 7 component parts of the Laser-Telescope. He said that we had been instrumental in making use of Ivan Panin's Bible Numeric Study to produce very accurate Greek and Hebrew Word Studies - and to work on the Interlinear Greek NT. He said that this was the first and key component part of the Laser-Telescope.
The City Church concept as developed by Roland Allen (author of “Missionary Methods: St. Paul's or Ours”, and “The Spontaneous Expansion of the Church: and the causes which hinder it”) and Watchman Nee through “The Glorious Church”, gripped me back in 1949 and 1963. Numbers of us have sought to advance this to a workable format in the Seattle area, and it became the second component part for the vision, and a “pedestal” as it were to support the Interlinear Greek NT. The other 5 component parts, because we had no part in their preparation, He said nothing concerning; but merely assembled the 7 parts in an Observatory, and then demonstrated the amazing results.
But on December 7, 2009, He revealed the other 5 parts: 3. Prayer Multiplication concept based on Bible Covenant, and illustrated by Pastor Ern Baxter through God's vertical covenant with us as individuals (di-aTHEke) and the horizontal covenant between fellow believers (sunTHEke), and using Deuteronomy 32:30, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; Matthew 18:19 and Zechariah 12:8. 4. The 12 Embryonic Revival Principles brought together in 1948 in North Battleford, Saskatchewan under the leadership of George R. Hawtin; 5. The release through Bible Meditationas demonstrated so powerfully by George Muller and George Whitefield. 6. The concept of Corporate Intercessionthrough being “possessed” by the Holy Spirit as demonstrated by Rees Howells. 7. And the focus of Oswald Chambers on the Redemptive Act of Jesus Christ, by saying thanks by Personal, Passionate Devotion to Jesus.
These 7 concepts put together will release scores and hundreds of small corporate city prayer cell groups to let Jesus do anythingHe wants through them by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I believe that this is morethan a spin-off. It is a release of understanding I have been praying for since 1967, and is a direct result that has sprung from the preparation of God's Bible Numeric Greek NT as made possible by Ivan Panin. He spent 100,000 hours in 50 years of work ending in 1942 in Aldershot, Ontario; but not put together until these last days preceding the soon return of our Lord Jesus.
Thisis my answer to my friend's question. J.A.W.
