No Theories on the Seven Spirits of God
What we think about the seven Spirits of God is not as important as what the Holy Bible says about them. What and who they are is not left up to conjectures and opinions but up to the truth of God’s Words.
The Lord God, through His Word, the Bible, is very specific. He tells us who and what are the seven Spirits of God?
If we allow the Bible to explicate itself, it may come as a surprise how easily and completely it does so. But, if we attempt to interpret it, we shall have theories and conjectures.
When we comprehend the significance of the seven Spirits of God it will shine holy light on the oneness of the Lord God.
Then, we shall understand how God operates and what the “us” in the Bible refers to in relation to the number of God. We shall fully perceive the Godhead.
What is Meant by the 7 Spirits of God?
I had already discussed what is meant by the seven Spirits of God.
Therefore, I will not repeat that information here.

Greetings From The Seven Spirits of God
Where in the Bible does it Speak of the Seven Spirits of God?
The following are scriptures references for the seven spirits of God.
Each of these references provides information about a different aspect of the seven Spirits.
The Book of Revelation is the only book of the Bible that explicitly speaks of “the seven Spirits of God” (Revelation 3:1).
- Revelation 1:4
- Revelation 3:1
- Revelation 4:5 &
- Revelation 5:6
The first one tells us who possesses the seven Spirits, the second reveals what are the spirits, but the final one is more complex and yet revealing for it confirms who is the seven spirits and where to find him.
However, because these three Scriptures are diverse one from the other, in other to comprehend them, without any doubts, we must turn to the Old Testament (OT), for clarity and explanation.
Who does the phrase, “him which is, and which was, and which is to come” refer to? If we know the answer to this then we shall comprehend who is sitting on the throne in heaven.
“The seven Spirits” that are before the throne of the Lord Jesus Christ in heaven belong to Him. They are his “Spirits” (Revelation 1:4).
Now, these seven spirits that are in front of the throne of Christ Jesus in heaven cannot be the Holy Ghost. Nor can they be a manifestation of the Holy Ghost.
Is the Holy Ghost seven or one?
Moreover, these seven spirits have names. And they send greetings to the seven churches on earth through an angel.
Who Owns the Seven Spirits of God?
“John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne.”(Revelation 1:4)
This is the first time the Bible uses this phrase and it’s slightly different from the three later instances.
According to the Scripture above, it speaks only of “the seven Spirits”, yet there’s a difference in other Scriptures. In them, the Lord owns the “spirits”, for they become “the seven Spirits of God”.
They belong to Him.
Now, if the Bible tells us that there are seven distinct and individual “Spirits” of God there’s no reason for us to give a personal opinion about this (Revelation 3:1).
Consequently, where many confuse themselves and many others with themselves, is saying what the Word of God didn’t say. If the Bible says seven it means seven and not another number.
Symbols of The Seven Spirits of God?
Sometimes, I think these pastors, or whatever they are, just makeup things or say whatever they desire about what they read and don’t understand.
There are no symbols of the seven Spirits of God. However,
in the Tabernacle, the golden candlestick symbolizes the seven Spirits of God.
Subsequently, we could say that the menorah is a symbol of the oneness of God. We could say this because the Scriptures would agree with this observation.
What Scriptures would confirm such a statement? And how could this be true? Because if it is true, it would violate the true Word of God. And there is no contradiction in God’s Word. None.
They read the Bible and they possess only a cognitive appreciation of the Scriptures, but they cannot spiritually discern the Word.
Therefore, the golden candlestick, the menorah, is a symbolic representation of the seven Spirits of God. But the seven Spirits of God are not a symbol of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is one of those seven Spirits, (Isaiah 11:1).
When is Seven Spirits Not Seven?
The Prophet Moses teaches Israel: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD,” (Deuteronomy 6:4).
Do we need to wonder if God is one or He is another number?
Many millennia later, Jesus Christ supports Moses’ teaching on this for he quotes him.
Jesus says, “The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord,” (Mark 12:29).
Here, we see that Moses declares that God is one God and later Jesus confirms and agrees with him.
Much later, Apostle Paul leaves no doubt that there is but one Lord God.
Does The Bible State That There is Only One Spirit of God?
He explains, “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him” (1 Corinthians 8:6).
So, the Bible testifies that there is one Lord God, but nowhere does it state that there is only one Spirit of God.
Teach only what the Bible teaches. Nothing more or nothing less!
Which Scripture Testifies that there is Only One Spirit of God?
Not because the Lord is one means that He has one spirit. Which Scripture testifies that there is only one Spirit of God?
The Bible couldn’t declare this. It’s not in the Bible. Further, for that reason, those who reject the authenticity and the existence of the seven Spirits of God provide no Scriptures to support their claim.
Instead, the Bible teaches that the one Lord God, who is a Spirit, also possesses seven other Spirits. They are the seven Spirits of God. And seven means seven! Nothing else!
I didn’t make that up! I will teach you the names of those spirits, their functions, and how the Lord does nothing. He utilizes His seven Spirits to accomplish everything.
Do you desire more details on this, then read Golden Candlestick?
Gabriel – the Messenger of the Lord
Then, he sends His messenger, Gabriel, who happens to be a Spirit of God, for he is an angel. Or we could say, he’s a son of God because He created him.
Read my new book: “The Golden Candlestick: The Seven Spirit of God” and get the details.
If this were true, how comes the Lord has seven other “Spirits” which belong to Him and they are always with Him?
Stop guessing about the Word of God. It’s not a guessing game.
Preach a Biblical Sermon on the Seven Spirits of God
Our opinion relating to the clarification of Scripture means nothing if it cuts across the Word of God.
Our point of view should travel in the same direction as the Scripture, not contrary. Or else keep them to yourself.
On the other hand, this Lord God who is one, He has seven other spirits. These are distinct spirits. The Bible teaches this and supports this claim.
This doesn’t change the fact that God is one.
If we examine nature we see parallels of this every day. Every day they unfold before our eyes.
For example, a normal octopus has eight tentacles. It’s one octopus but it has eight different tentacles.
Does its “octogenarian” structure change the fact that it is one octopus?
Does Their Manner of Operation Change the Number of Them?
At what point, “Seven Spirits” don’t mean seven different spirits?
The seven different Spirits of God indeed express themselves in different ways but their manner of operation does not change the number of them.
So, if seven Spirits do not mean seven different spirits how many do they equal? Three?
The Bible tells us that the Lord created the heavens and the earth and all that are in them in seven days, (Genesis 2:1-2).
Are those seven distinct and different days or are they something else? Then, He stopped (rested) because eight is the number of God. The number of perfection! Completion!
Again, the guessing is apparent for “the seven Spirits are not different spirits but most likely refer to the complex ministry of the one Holy Spirit.”
Which Scripture supports this claim? But then he is not certain for he said “most likely”. Don’t guess the Word. Study it and teach it based on its instructions not on your opinions.
If we need to understand the complex ministry of the Holy Ghost, we could start by studying His operations in the Book of Acts.
But that guess is incorrect. The Holy Ghost or the Spirit of the Lord is one of the seven Spirits of God.
Folks, my opinions or those of others don’t affect or change the truth of God’s Word.
But they function either to bring clarity to it or obscure it in doubt, darkness, and ignorance.
God is not a man. He’s a Spirit, (John 4:24).
The Seven Spirits of God Explained
I studied the seven Spirits of God in depth and discovered a gem. I wrote about it in my new book: “Golden Candlestick: The Seven Spirits of God”. It explains these Spirits of God in great detail.
The Bible is very specific. There is no confusion in the Church, but the world is in chaos because the truth is before them but they cannot perceive it.
“And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive,” (Matthew 13:14).
Those who are confused have not experienced the Light of the Word of God.
It illuminates our darkness and empowers keen awareness of a one true Lord with seven distinct Spirits with names.
James W. Goll writes, “Please note that the seven Spirits of God do not remain in heaven, but they are sent out into all the earth.”
Halleluiah to the seven Spirits of God, which were sent into all the earth: Jesus Christ our Lord, (Revelation 5:6).
