On February 1, 2020, in my closing message of our conference, I told the story of going to lunch with Rick Joyner years ago. We went to a restaurant of his choosing after church but there was a long wait so we turned around to leave. Just then Robin McMillan came out of the building and called us back inside, saying that there were a number of them that had a table and Bob Jones, the prophet, had said to save two seats because there were two more coming. So we went back in and sat down at the table with the two men and their wives. As I took my seat Bob was talking about the door he said was going to open when the two men came which was “the 222 door.” I personally was looking for a revelation of a 222 door because of a series of experiences I had been having beginning with the number 444 and then 222. Bob said the 222 door was Ephesians 2:22 “being built together into a habitation of God by the spirit.” I thought this was remarkable and it certainly was a specific word for me, which I was very grateful to receive.
The reason I felt compelled to re-share this experience that night became apparent the following day, which was Super Bowl Sunday. It was the Kansas City Chiefs playing the San Francisco 49rs. The KC win was the fulfillment of a prophecy Bob had given a number of times years previously. Some of the things he prophesied concerning this were that when the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl again it would mark the beginning of a “great harvest in the heart land,” and a “change of heart in America.” Among other things he also said that it would be the day of the “2s.” It wasn’t until the actual day of Super Bowl 2020 that this began to make sense. The “Day of the 2s” began with the second Super Bowl win for the Chiefs. The date was 2-2-2020 and it was the 222nd win for Coach Andy Reid.
When I saw all these number “2s” I realized why the spirit had me share that experience, to bring Bob’s word in to memory and also to bring emphasis to it. I feel led to share it now because of the recent test which we are going through, both as a nation, but also personally for many people. Through the recent pandemonium over the pandemic, I saw many relationships suffer under the stress. Much of this was in fact due to differing opinions on the specifics of the virus and its effects, its potential to harm, and whether the “experts” could or even should be trusted.
One verse that kept coming to me was Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” Too often people think that disagreement should keep them from moving together, but that is not what this verse is saying. It is not saying that two must agree on everything in order to walk together, it is saying that two must agree to walk together, not agree on everything in order to walk together.
When Jesus walked to Emmaus with the two disciples they certainly were not in agreement. In fact the two men were leaving Jerusalem on the day Jesus prophesied He would rise from the dead.
Luke 24:13, “Now behold, two of them were traveling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem.
14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
15 So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.
16 But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him.
17 And He said to them, “What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?”
21… Indeed, besides all this, today is the third day since these things happened.
22 Yes, and certain women of our company, who arrived at the tomb early, astonished us.
23 When they did not find His body, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who said He was alive.
24 And certain of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but Him they did not see.”
25 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!
26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?”
27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.
32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”
33 So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together…”
They weren’t in agreement on everything while they walked together but Jeuss walked with them anyway, and because He did they eventually came around to an understanding that changed the course of their lives, literally.
It is the time of the “twos” –
Ecclesiastes 4:9, “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor.
10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!”
Matthew 18:19, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.”
It’s time we put aside our own agendas and come together – building the habitation of God through the spirit as Paul wrote and Bob prophesied. Eph 4:16 says, “… the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies …” a joint is where two parts of a body connect. This is where we have authority. It is not that each part of the body agrees to be the same, it is where two parts agree to connect and grow together for the benefit of all. It is the day of the “twos” working together to build God’s kingdom, not our own.
