This study is inspired by two things: a study about the Scriptural significance of the number two given by a brother a few years ago (a link is provided in the reference section) and an email discussion about why the Lord Jesus Christ charged His apostles to “tell no man” about certain things and some of the people He healed to also keep it a secret of who healed them.
The purpose of this study is to chew the cud on the spiritual meaning of the number two. Let’s review what chewing the cud is:
Chewing the cud is meditating on God’s Word day and night so that we may observe to do according to all that is written therein (Jos 1:8). It is looking for the spiritual meaning behind the letter, for it is the Spirit that gives life and the flesh profits nothing (Job 33:4, Joh 6:63). It is for those who delight in the law of God after the inward man (Eze 36:27, Rom 7:22), for those who keep the sayings of the prophecy of this book for the time is at hand (Psa 119:48, Rev 1:3). We ruminate on His Word in order to love God with all our heart, and with all our soul and with all our mind (Deu 6:5, Mat 22:37)
Psa 119:15 (NKJV) I will meditate on Your precepts, and contemplate Your ways.
1Ti 4:15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
1Ti 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
