2 President's Speak

President Trump received a warm reception on Saturday from the roughly 50,000 commencement attendees a record crowd for the university saying "In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God."

Jerry Falwell Jr said “I do not believe any president in our lifetimes has done so much that has benefited the Christian community in such a short time span as Donald Trump,” the crowd applauded in agreement.

Trump won big cheers for promising to protect their religious liberty—“as long as I am your president, no one is ever going to stop you from practicing your faith or from preaching what is in your heart,” he declared—and laughs for joking about Auburn’s intimidating football team. He called on the students to be champions for Christ, and encouraged them to maintain faith in God: As long as they have that, he said, “you will not fail.” He even made a humble crack at himself: “Here I am, standing before you as president of the United States,” he said. “I am guessing that some people here today thought that ... would really require major help from God.”

Speaking Saturday to tens of thousands of supporters at Tehran’s Azadi Stadium, his biggest campaign rally thus far, Rouhani said, “We are at the edge of a great historical decision, our nation will announce if it continues on the path of peacefulness or if it wants to choose tension.”

“We should not let Iran become isolated again,” added Rouhani, “We want constructive communication with the world.”, the May 19 vote is seen largely as a referendum on Rouhani’s outreach to the rest of the world following the country’s landmark 2015 nuclear accord with world powers.

Though he is leading in official polls, Rouhani faces a tough fight for re-election against conservative rivals who accuse him of failing to boost the struggling economy, earlier on Saturday, a leading figure of Iran’s Sunni minority endorsed the incumbent leader despite the government’s “shortcomings.”, Sunnis make up around five to 10 percent of Iran’s 80 million population, which is overwhelmingly from the Shiite sect of Islam, religious leader Molavi Abdol Hamid said “the atmosphere for Sunnis has been a little more relaxed” since Rouhani took power in 2013, and that most would support him in Friday’s election.

The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 2

The number 2 conveys the meaning of a union, division or the verification of facts by witnesses. A man and woman, though two in number, are made one in marriage (Genesis 2:23 - 24). There is also the union between Christ and the church (see 1Corinthians 12). The testimony of God is divided into Old and New Testaments. His agreements with mankind are divided into Old and New Covenants. And, though two in number, God the Father and God the Son (Jesus Christ) compose a single Godhead.
The first man, Adam, sinned and brought death and destruction into the world. Jesus, however, as the second (or last) Adam brings the hope of the resurrection and eternal life (1Corinthians 15:21 - 22, 45 - 49).
Those who ultimately refuse to repent and obey God will be put to death FOREVER by being thrown into the lake of fire, which is called the SECOND death (Revelation 21:8). This act will eternally divide those who are righteous from those who practiced evil.
At the minimum, the testimony of at least 2 people were needed in the Old Testament to convict someone of a crime or sin. The validity of this teaching was confirmed by the Apostle Paul (1Timothy 5:19, Titus 3:10). In the End Time, two witnesses will appear on the world scene to testify and uphold the truth of God against the Beast and the False Prophet (see Revelation 11). Jesus sent the disciples out in pairs so that they could not only testify about his teachings and miracles, but also be witnesses of those who accepted or rejected the gospel (Mark 6:7 - 13).
Two can also convey comparison and contrast. The Old Covenant was based on physical blessings for obedience while the New is based on those that are spiritual. In the Old Testament physical circumcision was required in order to be considered part of God's people, while the New requires circumcision of the heart. God formerly required obedience only to the "letter" of his laws but now calls upon man to obey their spiritual intent as well.

Appearances of the number two

The word 'God' appears in all books except two, which are the Song of Solomon and Esther.
The shortest verse in the Bible, which is "Jesus wept" found in John 11:35, contains just two words. Of the ten shortest books, eighth ranked Haggai has only two chapters.
During Creation week God made two great lights, one to rule the day (sun) and a lesser one to rule the night (moon - Genesis 1:16).

How is the number 2 significant in the New Testament?

Where there is a second epistle in the New Testament it is contrasted to the first through, in part, its discussion of an enemy. Hence, one subject of the book of 2Corinthians is the devil (2:11, 11:14, 12:7).
In 2Thessalonians we have a number of titles and references given for Satan. They are the 'man of sin' and 'son of perdition' (2Thessalonians 2:3), the 'mystery of iniquity' (or lawlessness in 2:7) and that 'wicked one' (2:8). In 2Peter we have an End Time rejection of God and the truth foretold (2Peter 3:3 - 7). John warns us in 2John about deceivers whom he also refers to as antichrists (1John 1:7).

The second of the three great divisions of the Old Testament is referred to as 'the Prophets' (Luke 24:44).
