The 7 Animating Principles of The Body Part 2
HOW TO BUILD YOUR INNER (spirit) MAN
The writer of the book of Hebrews said that Jesus is the express image of God the Father. Paul said in Colossians 2:9 that in Jesus dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Jesus declared to Thomas and Phillip that if they had seen him, then, they had seen the Father. In John 10:30 it is recorded that Jesus said that He and the Father were one. This state of walking in the Spirit, so that believers might be one with our Heavenly Father is the original intent of the Great Creator God.
The Seven Spirits Of God
Who are the seven spirits of God? Let's start by reading a few scripture verses.
Revelation 4:5: From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits[a] of God.
Revelation 3:1:To the angel of the church in Sardis write: These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits of God and the seven stars.
If the Holy Spirit is just one spirit, why are the 7 spirits of God repeated several times in the book of Revelation?
If we look a little further in the bible, we find the 7 spirits listed in the book of Isaiah.
Isaiah 11:2: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-- It's important to note that the seven spirits of God work together with the 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit.
