In this final teaching on "Use the Law of Agreement," Dr. Don G. Pickney exposes the literal Greek meaning of several words in Matthew 18:19-20, "...If two of you shall AGREE on earth as TOUCHING anything 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."
The word "agree" is the Greek, "sumphoneo." While stemming from the root, "sumphonos" (we get our word symphony from it), meaning "harmonious," the form of the word, "sumphoneo, carries much more weight than just to be "in harmony." It actually carries legal meaning. The Greek dictionary suggests, "a binding contranct," or "covenant agreement." Spiritually, it is what triggers every major miracle of the Bible. It takes two people on the earth making the agreement. One of those two would need to be representing God. In the New Testament sense, one would be acting "in the name of Jesus," representing him.
We see "sumphoneo" as Naaman, the leper, came to the prophet Elisha to be healed. Elisha, offered to Naaman a remedy... but only if he would go dip seven times in the Jordan river. If this were in the natural, rather than supernatural, it would constitute a "legally binding agreement," similar to "If you will paint my house, I will give you One Thousand Dollars." The moment you complete the paint job, I would legally owe you the money. In the same way, Elisha promised (in Jehovah God's name) that if Naaman would go wash in the Jordan river he would be healed. Although at first, Naaman rejected the offer, after his servant reasoned with him, he then went and washed seven times in the Jordan. When he came out of the water the seventh time, his skin came back like to a child's flesh, and he was made clean of his leprosy, and completely whole again.
Similarly, every greater miracle of the Bible was performed by God's servant messenger in the same manner. All of Jesus' creative miracles were done using this "agreement." At the marriage feast (Jesus' first miracle), He gave the command "Fill the water pots full of water," then, "Go serve them to the governor of the feast." When they accepted the offer, and had completed what in legal terms is "consideration" (the thing done by the promise in reliance upon the promise), when served to the governor, it was miraculously made wine. When Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, he made the offer to the family and friends, "You will see the glory of God if you will roll away the stone!" Their initial response to the agreement was, "But master, he is decayed and stinks." Then Jesus made his offer clearer, "Said I not unto you, if you will roll away the stone, you will see the glory of God." The scripture says, "Then they rolled away the stone." They accepted the offer (one similar today of saying, "dig up the corpse from the grave." Of course, after they had done the "consideration" and fulfilled their part of the agreement, the received the reward of seeing Lazarus alive and well from the grave tomb.
