The Seven Spirits of God are not the Holy Spirit. They are sentinel beings designed to train us, mandate us and equip us to become sons of God. They’re testators to the covenant of adoption, they testate to every covenant. Every time God moves the Seven Spirits of God move, that’s what the colors of the rainbow are. They always testate to a covenant, if you don’t have them functioning around your life then you will literally be a powerless Christian.
Galatians 4 says this: ‘An heir, though he be lord of all, is under tutors and governors until the appointed time.’ A tutor means someone who trains you, a governor means someone that teaches you how to rule or who rules over you until you can rule.
Gal 3:29 says: ‘we are heirs of the promise and joint heirs in Christ.’ If we are an heir to a promise, then the heir needs to be trained to become a joint heir in Christ. Because, to be an heir of a promise doesn’t say you are going to inherit the promise, it just means you are an heir to it. We have to go through a process to inherit the promise.
Isaiah 11:1 “There shall come out a rod from the stem of Jesse and a branch shall grow out of his roots, and the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of the Lord. They shall make him of quick understanding in the Fear of the Lord and he shall not judge after the sight of the eyes nor reproof after the hearing of the ears, but with righteousness he shall judge the poor…”etc.
When Jesus said “the Spirit of The Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to preach the gospel, heal the broken hearted and deliver them that are bound” , He wasn’t talking about the Holy Spirit. All the Seven Spirits of God were fully expressed in Christ. Because the Spirit of the Lord is the center and is about government, Jesus expressed government in its fullness with all the others being associated with that government.
The menorah has the Spirit of the Lord in the center, then the Spirit of Wisdom, the Spirit of Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel, the Spirit of Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and then the Fear of the Lord.
Rev 4:5 says ‘There were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the Seven Spirits of God.’ When the Bible talks about the Seven Spirits of God, it’s talking about the person not the position. There are Seven Spirits of God, they are not God, the Bible says very clearly they burn before the throne. The Father is seated on the throne, Jesus is seated on the throne, the Holy Spirit is seated on the throne. Those seven are the full expression of everything that goes on from the throne.
So who is the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is God. God sits on the throne . If the Seven Spirits are before the throne then there must be Seven individual beings that He’s talking about. Some people say ‘well the Spirit of the Lord is the Holy Spirit.’ If that’s the case there’s not Seven Spirits of God, there’s six Spirits of God. God’s number’s not six! The Seven Spirits of God follow the instructions given by God to teach us about His Kingdom: His Will, His purpose and how to express these into the world around us.
In Revelation 5:6 it says this: ‘These having seven horns and seven eyes which are the Seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth. Zechariah 4:2 is similar. Seven Spirits sent out into all the earth, not the Holy Spirit.
The reason they are sent out is to see who is ready to be trained as a son. They are the eyes of God that move to and fro over the face of the earth looking to approve a son in a matter. When something is sent out it’s given a purpose, a mandate, an authority to do a job. You and I are called the sent out ones of the Father. That means I have a spirit in me. The purpose of the Seven Spirits of God is to empower you and to establish the Kingdom and to express it as heirs of God to the world around us that need him.
Revelation 1 “The revelation of Jesus Christ which God gave to Him to show things that must shortly come to pass, and He sent and signified it by His angel and his servant John. Who bore a record and testified to all the things that he saw’, not heard. John to the seven churches at Asia.
Grace be unto you and peace to you and peace from Him which is, which is the Father, which was which is Jesus Christ, which is to come, which is the Holy Spirit.”
Then he says something really interesting here, he says “and from the Seven Spirits which are before the throne.” John would not have brought greetings to the churches from the Seven Spirits of God unless there was a relational connection. So he brings greetings from the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, then he says “and’ which means they’re included in the greeting – and from the Seven Spirits of God which are before the throne. Which means that there is some relationship that has to be developed for them to bring a greeting to the face of the earth out of Heaven. It must be important then to develop a relationship if there are going to be greetings out of Heaven.
Are these Seven Spirits of God omnipresent? No they’re not, but the classroom is. You can go to the classroom any time you like with as many people as are on the face of the earth.
Isaiah 11:2 and Revelation 4:5 The Seven Spirits of God are to teach us, to instruct us in the things pertaining to the realms of the kingdom. They are to present us in the courts of the King as mature, equipped, empowered, mandated sons of God. Once this happens the King can then release us and authorize us to reveal the kingdom on earth. In that day God will be admired in those that love Him. The Spirit of the Lord is the first one. The Spirit of the Lord is the center candlestick in the menorah. The Spirit of the Lord holds the whole area of the Seven Spirits together.
It is about positional dominion. It teaches and enables us to experience and see the reality of the dimensions of the Kingdom and the realm of heaven. It teaches us about the throne room, about power, about authority, about dominion, about son-ship, about rulership, about transfiguration and trans-relocation. It teaches us about bringing divine order and divine government out of justice from Heaven and how to assert it upon the earth over the throne. It has to do with the glory of God and exercising of dominion on the earth.
It teaches us where to and how to access the realm of God. It teaches us how to use what we have at the right time. It helps us to decipher revelation and visions. The Spirit of Understanding teaches us how to perceive, how to teach and inform others about the realm of the Kingdom. It teaches us how to rule in the realms of God as a son.
The Spirit of Counsel teaches us which ways to rule as a son, teaches us how to access the counsels of God. How to consult with them; it teaches us how to resolve issues and bring advice of God to those around you out of the realm of the spirit. It teaches us how to commune with God and gain His advice. It instructs us in the function of the different council chambers of HEAVEN; about the role of the royal advisers and the priesthood and the sons of God in the realm of the dominion in the throne; about the Holy Spirit; and about the Son. It teaches us about the trinity of God and their role in our lives and our lives in them.
It teaches us how to access the knowledge of God, how to apply that knowledge of God to the world around us. It enables us to become aware of our place to rule as a son of God and what to do with what you know. It enables us to gain access to knowledge about the supernatural realms of God, how they operate and how they function. Not only does the Spirit of Knowledge reveal but also teaches us how to retain what we see and to process and store the information until it becomes permanent in us. It teaches us how to meditate and receive divine insight and revelation though visions, visitation and also through dreams.
It teaches us about strength and absolute dominion. It teaches us how to exercise the supernatural realm of God to reveal the power of God, the dominion of God and how to exercise it in the world, in the earth and in the spirit realm around us. It teaches us about the council chamber of war and the secrets of how to war in the spirit realm in the heavenlies ….how to access the scrolls of heaven to teach us and enable us and to equip us to be who we are supposed to be as rulers. It teaches us about the heavenly places of God and how we are seated there. It instructs us about our seats of rulership and the governmental arenas that we operate in as a king, and how to do the works of the kingdom.
He will cloak you in a garment that has majesty in it. Each one is very functional in their relationship with God, how they do what they do and what they train us in. Each of them is very important and the primary purpose of the Seven Spirits of God is to teach us and to instruct us in things pertaining to the realms of the kingdom and to present us to the courts of the King in His mountain as mature, mandated sons of God. Once this happens the King can then release us to reveal His Kingdom in every strata and sphere He’s set up.
Let’s pray: Father, Lord I want to thank you that you have given us the capacity as your sons to be mandated and to become all that you’ve desired us to be in the nations. Father everything that you’ve written and spoken about was to reveal us as fully-fledged, mandated, empowered and equipped sons. Father you’ve given us a full capacity to retain everything of your Kingdom. In me dwells the full capacity of the Godhead to be fully manifested as I am on the earth as it is in Heaven. Teach me by your Seven Spirits to become mature in you.
