In Revelation, John talks about
The 7 Spirits of God…
John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne,
From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumbli ngs and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God.
“To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of Go d and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.
Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the centre of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and th e elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
The 7 Spirits are…
The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgement and a spirit of fire.
The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord —
He will be a spirit of justice to the one who sits in judgment, a source of strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.
This is what the Lord says: “See, I will stir up the spirit of a destroyer against Babylon and the people of Leb Kamai.
7 Spirits of God:
Wisdom and understanding
Counsel and might
Knowledge and fear
If you read the order that the Spirits are given:
First comes judgement by the Holy Spirit fire.
With wisdom and understanding we the Priests, Prophets and teachers, are able to counsel others, with might, giving knowledge of the fear of the Lord, who provides justice for all the Saints before he becomes the Destroyer of the enemy.
The following scripture is the end result of the 7 Spirits being sent out over all the earth.
But your many enemies will become like fine dust, the ruthless hordes like blown chaff.
Suddenly, in an instant, the Lord Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.
Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel, that attack her and her fortress and besiege her, will be as it is with a dream, with a vision in the night, as when a hungry person dreams of eating, but awakens hungry still; as when a thirsty person dreams of drinking, but awakens faint and thirsty still.
So, will it be with the hordes of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion.
Be stunned and amazed, blind yourselves and be sightless; be drunk, but not from wine, stagger, but not from beer.
The Lord has brought over you a deep sleep:
He has sealed your eyes (the prophets); he has covered your heads (the seers).
For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll.
And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.” Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I don’t know how to read.”
The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.
Therefore, once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish.
The intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.”
Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their work in darkness and think, “Who sees us? Who will know?”
In that day the deaf will hear the words of the scroll, and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see.
Once more the humble will rejoice in the Lord; the needy will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
The ruthless will vanish, the mockers will disappear, and all who have an eye for evil will be cut down.
Those who with a word make someone out to be guilty, who ensnare the defender in court and with false testimony deprive the innocent of justice.
Therefore, this is what the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, says to the descendants of Jacob: “No longer will Jacob be ashamed; no longer will their faces grow pale.
When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel.
