In the very beginning God has shown the importance of two by the creation of light to seperate from the darkness, and then made two lights known as the sun (Greater light) and the moon (Lesser Light). “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also”(Genesis 1:3-5,15,16).
After God created all trees, creatures and herbs he saw it was good, but there was no one to tend it and then knew he needed to create man and then thought he should not be alone and therefore made woman as his help meet. “And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof. And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man”.(Genesis 2:5,21,22).
When God had seen the wickedness of man and that he would need to destroy what he had created it was then two of everything Noah was told to gather and take into the ark for the preservation of all things he had created, and then made a Covenant with Noah. “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. 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. And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he”.(Genesis 6:17-22).
Scripture even tells us that to be alone as one is not good for our well being, as to have the company of another for support as Moses had his brother or as a man shall leave his father and mother and cling to his wife is God’s plan for man. “There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child not brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity, yea, it is a sore travail. Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken”.
How many times if we are alone we’re misunderstood, yet when there are two then our point is well received? This could be why Jesus sent out his disciples by two. “And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread,, no money in their purse”.(Mark 6:7,8).
“Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them”.
