THE ULTIMATE PAIR
Some people who drive a sedan and later drive a truck, choose never to go back to a sedan. Certain features, ways that the new one drives, a plethora of other reasons are given as the keeping factors of the truck. In the same fashion, some individuals who were once single and now have been married for quite some time cannot view ever being single again. The pros/cons to a shared life for them outweigh the pros/cons of a single life. Like I have stated, this is for some people, not all. However, I find it interesting that God does marvelous works with Pairs.
When speaking about the Two Witnesses to come in The Tribulation Period, Dr. David Jeremiah in his book, The Book of Signs, states -
"Another reason for sending two witnesses is to comply with the legal standards of Jewish law. At least two witnesses were required to establish the truth of a testimony: 'Whoever is deserving of death shall be put to death on the testimony of two or three witnesses; he shall not be put to death on the testimony of one witness.' (Deut. 17:6). One witness may be mistaken or corrupted. But the corroboration of two witnesses confirms the truth.
The Bible often records God using two witnesses to confirm a truth. Two angels testified to the woman at the tomb that Christ had risen. Two angels testified to the disciples that He had ascended. God has often paired people to perform His missions: Moses and Aaron, Joshua and Caleb, Zerubbabel and Joshua, Peter and John, Paul and Silas, Timothy and Titus. Jesus sent out the apostles in pairs (Mark 6:7), as well as the seventy (Luke 10:1). These two witnesses will confirm God's message of judgment and His call to repentance with their perfect meshing testimony." (p.303)
Right now there is a pairing, a supernatural marriage of the spirit with The Holy Spirit for those who choose to believe in Christ as their Savior. Corporately, The Scripture calls Christians - Christ's Bride. As His Bride, we are betrothed to Him and His Holy Spirit is our seal upon our lives that the dowry has been paid in full. After Jesus returns to Rapture His Bride away, the two of us will have a wedding and wedding banquet that has no rival. At this joining, God the Father will not have to say, "What I have brought together, let no person separate." - for we, Christ and His Bride, shall be The Ultimate Pair.
