And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
Isaiah 11:2-3 KJV
This scripture is about Jesus and what guaranteed His high efficiency. If Jesus, being both God and Man needed God’s seven Spirits then we need these more today.
- The Spirit Of the Lord. This is like the General Science or General Medicine from where we branch off to specialized fields. It is the spirit that anoints us at the new birth and translates us into God’s Kingdom.
- The Spirit Of Wisdom. This is the Spirit that enables us to apply the word of God in our lives and the lives of others whether in simple living or in signs and wonders. Mark 6:2.
- The Spirit Of Understanding. This is the Spirit that enables us to comprehend times and seasons and events so that we are never overtaken by happenings and circumstances. 1 Chronicles 12:32.
- The Spirit Of Counsel. This will make you advise yourself before anyone does. You will be able to handle lives complexities with ease as if you are not human.
- The Spirit Of Might. This is also the Spirit Of greatness that makes you overcome barriers of smallness and inferiority. In fact with the Spirit Of Might, you may appear as god to many. You need this Spirit where you’re looked down upon. It will make you Mighty but not Almighty.
- The Spirit Of Knowledge. With the Spirit Of Knowledge, your heart and mind get access to information which naturally is hidden from others. You know things that makes others question your source, yet they become authentic. The Spirit Of Knowledge will make you very knowledgeable but not omniscient .
Let me caution us here.Anyone Blessed with these six Spirits will not be ordinary amongst men. There are many men and women today who are endowed with these six Spirits as simply explained above.
One of God’s seven Spirits is enough to make others worship you because you will no longer belong to the ranks of ordinary men but sad to say, this is where many fall.
It is not unusual for others to see the hand of God upon you and assume you are god but it is wrong and a sin for you to accept you are god. This is why the seventh Spirit Of God is needed to make us remain humble.
- The Spirit Of the Fear Of God. This is the Spirit that constantly reminds us that, irrespective of what Hand, Might, Wisdom, Knowledge or respect that we command, we are still human and we direct every glory to God. When people start seeing us as god, and powerful, we become restless in our hearts because we will acknowledge that we have no inherent force within us that has made us what we have become except God who has been gracious to us. When you see great people disrespecting their subordinates and maltreating them, don’t think far, they may have what it takes to be mighty in life but they lack the Spirit Of the Fear Of God. They forget where they were when God First found them. The Spirit Of the Fear Of God will make you honor those who held your hands and showed you the way to where you are today. When you lack this Spirit, you will pretend you dropped directly from heaven and you have no reference point.
The seven Spirits Of God will make you discerning as in verse 3 and your judgement will not be by what you hear or see. That is why Jesus said he will not commit himself into men because he knows what was in their heart. You can imagine the number of people who will be jostling each other for Jesus’ attention during his days on earth. Attempting to outdo each other, but because Jesus have these seven Spirits, His judgement was not by the seeing of his eyes or the hearing of his eyes.
Prayer: Lord anoint me with your seven Spirits and don’t leave out the Spirit Of the Fear Of the Lord so that I will always acknowledge you as my source and treat others with respect.
Action: Share God’s word with OTHERS.
Evangelist Elvis Eben-Baffour
