The Seven Spirits of God
Isaiah 11:2 & Revelations 1:4
Whenever you read a book, or an article of any kind it’s always good to get the background of the author. The reason for this is because you the reader will get a good idea of what and why the writer makes the statements or say what he or she says. The background and views of the author can determine the option of the author. In order for us, the saints of the high God to understand the instructions given to us through the greatest book of all times The Holy Bible, written by the greatest author of all times JESUS CHRIST. We must get to know the author.
In the book of Isaiah 11:1-2 a prophetic description of the Messiahs anointing relates to his spiritual character and stature. The Messiah is filled with the spirit, and his charismatic gifts are described as THE SPIRIT, WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, COUNSEL, STRENGTH, KNOWLEDGE, and FEAR OF THE LORD.
The seven spirits of God are dispatched to the earth to be used for various reasons.The spirit of the lord is the spirit of Gods mighty authority, it is the Holy Ghost which comes to earth and indwelled people at certain times throughout the Bible. Whenever the Israelites turned their back on God. The lord would let the enemy defeat the Israelites prompting Israel to turn back to the lord and cry out to him for rescue. Each time the lord raised up a judge, a spiritual leader from among the people to judge and keep the nation in spiritual obedience. Sounds like the saints of today, the lord delivers us from one situation and we cry for help and go into something else. The spirit of the lord is in the earth to bless us to make right decisions, the spirit of God is dwelling in our sanctified souls to make us the child of god he called us to be. The flesh is weak,I know and at times it wars with the spirit but the spirit is willing if we let it have its way.
Although Israel was disobedient to God the lord sent a Judge to get Israel straight, along with the Judge was the spirit of the lord. When it was time for battle the spirit came in, according to Judges 3:1-11. When the enemy nations pitched there tent for battle against Israel the spirit of the lord came upon Othniel the Judge and he judged Israel and went to war and defeated all their enemies, God’s spirit still dwells and judges the earth.
