REVELATION: two part series


PART II: The Seven(7)SpiritsThe seven Spirits who are before His throne speaks to the perfection and completion of the Holy Spirit.

John uses an Old Testament description of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 11:2 describes seven aspects of the Holy Spirit:

1/. The Spirit of the LORD

2/.. the Spirit of wisdom

3/. understanding,

4/. the Spirit of counsel

5/. might,

6/. the Spirit of knowledge

7/. fear of the Lord.

It isn’t that there are seven different spirits of God, rather the Spirit of the LORD has these characteristics, and He has them all in fullness and perfection. I guess this is great news for us today because we have a source that will never run dry. He has unlimited power and grace to lavish upon us each day. When we need wisdom we can go to him… “he who lacks wisdom let him ask God…” ( James 1:5). When we need counsel we can go to Him… “I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel…” (Psalm 16:7). When we are in need of his might we can wait upon him… “those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength…” (Isaiah 40:31).

The number 7 in the bible is a number of perfection or fullness. So I believe that God wants for us to have his presence, his counsel, his wisdom, his might, his knowledge and understanding to perfection or fullness.

So today if you feel empty, lost or confused, you need to realize that the source of what you need never runs dry. You can call on him anytime, no matter who you are and no matter what you’ve done. His arms are open all day long to receive you and fill you again and again. He said,

… I came that they may have life and have it abundantly…”

Reach out to him today in simple childlike faith and you will be filled with His unfailing love.

…For with Him is the fountain of life… Psalm 36:9
