THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD
What did John the Beloved mean by the statement, "Which are the Seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth?"
We know that there is only one Holy Spirit, but yet John here mentions "Seven Spirits of God."
First of all, the number "seven" denotes perfection, universality, and totality. The Holy Spirit is God; therefore, He is complete in all things.
But yet, the number "seven" denotes something else, actually, the attributes of the Holy Spirit, which were given to us by the great Prophet Isaiah. I quote from the Bible:
"And there shall come forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots (this Verse has to do with the Incarnation with the balance of the Chapter referring to the glorious reign of Christ during the Millennium. The word "Rod" in this instance, refers to a "tender branch," which a tender shoot sprouting out of the root of a dead, fallen tree, referring to both humanity in general and Israel in particular. Jesse was David's father, and through this family the Messiah would come; and so He did!):
"And the Spirit of LORD shall rest upon Him (upon Christ), the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, the Spirit of Counsel and Might, the Spirit of Knowledge and of the Fear of the LORD (this proclaims the perfection of the Holy Spirit and all His attributes listed here resting upon the Messiah)" (Isa. 11:1-2).
These attibutes are:
1, The Spirit of the Lord;
2, The Spirit of Wisdom;
3, The Spirit of Understanding;
4, The Spirit of Counsel;
5, The Spirit of Might;
6, The Spirit of Knowledge;
7, The Spirit of the Fear of the LORD.
And yet, these seven arrtibutes are grouped into three parts, with the Spirit of the Lord at the Head.
THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD
The Holy Spirit is God. He is not merely an emanation from the Father, but is rather a Person in His Own right, so to speak. When Jesus spoke of Him, He spoke of Him as a distinct Personality. He said of Him:
"And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever; even the Spirit of Truth; Whom the world cannot receive, because it sees Him not neither knows Him: but you know Him; for He dwells with you and shall be in you:
Once again, please notice the pronouns that Jesus used. Again He said, "Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth is come, He will guide you into all Truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak; and He will show it unto you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of mine and shall show it unto you (Jn. 16:13-15)
Once again, I call attention to the fact that Jesus constantly used pronouns regarding the Holy Spirit, specifying that He is a Personality in His Own standing. As stated, the Holy Spirit is God.
There is One God, but manifested in Three Persons, "God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit."
