Saying 23

(23) Jesus said, "I shall choose you, one out of a thousand, and two out of ten thousand, and they shall stand as a single one."
10 = Christ as the dual-natured man
100 = church
1000 = king
10000 = ??
100 = 10 x 10 When we become dual-natures men 'like' Christ, then he and us together make the church
100 = 1000 / 10 The church is the tithe (the increase) of the king.
1000 The king rules over the flesh. As we become spiritual people and learn to control the flesh, we become kings.

The two taken from 10000 are 10, us, as dual-natured men, and 1000, which means we are kings over the flesh. This is confirmed by 100 x 100 which says that the two shall be one, our spirit and flesh will be as one.
