The Seven Spirits Of God

Awake the genious in you. Follow divine logic and apply it.

Who made us? • Who gave us intelligence? • Who still teaches us?

If you have a hard time answering these three simple questions than you must be in some kind of competition with someone. Are you a sportsman competing with the winning opponent? Can you beat the Creator and define Him in your own warpy way? Most certainly the answer is no.

seven spirits« This diagram portrays the seven spirits of God. HS stands for the Holy Spirit.

In the book of Isaiah 11:2 we read about the seven spirits of the LORD: 1. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him. 2. The spirit of wisdom. 3. The spirit of understanding. 4. The spirit of counsel. 5. The spirit of strength. 6. The spirit of knowledge. 7. The spirit of the fear of the LORD.

The six-pointed Star of David (Hebrew: Mogen David) is both a shield and a weapon. This picture shows the company of the Holy Spirit. Going clockwise: F stands for the fear of God; U stands for understanding, K stands for knowledge; W for wisdom; S for strength, and C for counsel. In the middle of these six spirits is the Holy Spirit. 12 o’clock - Fear of the LORD releases (2 o’clock) understanding, which absorbs (4 o’clock) knowledge. Knowledge conditions behavior, which includes thinking, and the management of feelings, also words, envisioning, planning and doing; hence (6 o’clock) - wisdom.

After wisdom is established, more wisdom comes in, for as it is with fear and anger, both feed on themselves; wisdom also feeds on itself in the positive sense. “The one who has shall have more” (Luke 19:26). Wise behavior produces (8 o’clock) strength; even unnatural strength of mind, resolve, and determination when confronted with an obstacle. Only the strong can give (10 o’clock) counsel; for any counsel of the weak produces the same in others. If a fool teaches others, he only makes more fools, but a strong person can strengthen those that are weak, etc.

This wonderful turning glorious shield of power comes to plow the soil, like a spinning auger, being readied for the sowing of God’s eternal seed. If you prepare Him a room the Holy Spirit will come, and do exactly that which Jesus promised us, teach, remind, guide and comfort us.

The seal of the Holy Spirit also means shield of the Holy Spirit. The Greek root word is sphragis, speaks of fencing in, protection - derived from the root word sphragizo, meaning to stamp, as with a signet or a private mark for security or preservation.

Obviously, those two Greek words, depicting the Seal of Truth, also depict the shield, mogen. No matter what the language, or culture, God’s truth is never lost.

The Age Of Reason

Come let us reason together... (Isaiah 1:18)

reasonScience has not yet figured out as to when and how humans broke away from primates. Why apes remain in their undeveloped state while humans progress is a case to be reasoned out. We reason and use common sense when arguing a case in a court of law, on the floor of Congress, House of Commons or Parliament. Reasoning out the most beneficial to all truth can be hard. Altruism and selfish interests battle for supremacy. The private business sentiment seeks to win over anything that might benefit others. Reasonable thinking is never parochial. Liberals and conservatives often play the moral and altruistic card from which the word hypocrisy evolved.

A strong sense of pride, affects the inner cortex of our brain. When one has found pleasure in that pride, e.g., supremacist sentiments, then it would be very difficult, if not completely impossible, to alter this kind of disposition.

The psychological makeup of supremacist sentiments, is an over inflated self-image, often mixed with an overbearing self-love and self-loathing.

Self-love and self-loathing often fight each other for supremacy. In need of definitions, and so, too often, this inner war is extended.

Supremacy needs nourishment; supremacist literature, speeches and lectures feed self-love while starving out the self-loathing. To ease this inner turmoil, one redirects and aims at the target one may deem as being inferior, and worthy of punishment.
