We know that the house of God is not divided, but we know that He does things at a higher level, and only those in the Spirit will understand it, only those with hearing ears will hear. No one will be carried away by the doctrines of man. We are here to be transformed, and the only way to be transformed is by the seven spirits of God. Spirit of completion: the Spirit of the LORD, the Spirit of wisdom, the Spirit of understanding, the Spirit of counsel, the Spirit of power, the Spirit of knowledge, and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord.
Why seven? Why seven spirits? The number 7 means perfection, completion. There are 7 stars, 7 lampstands, 7 angels, and 7 churches. All mean one thing: completion. In the book of Revelation, God was not just talking about the seven churches. He was talking about all the churches spread in the world: that One Church! Because this Bible, this Word, was written to all who read and receive it and keep it. They who do it will be blessed (Revelation 1:3). It is the only book that starts with that promise and ends with it. The Word is for ages to come as He is, was, and is to come again and will be forever more. In Him, we have the fullness of Him! The carnal mind can never understand the things of the Spirit. But when we are baptized in the Holy Spirit, which is the seven spirits, we start walking in this place of completion. Our spirit is put back inside of God in this seven-spirit measure. The seven spirits are one, and we become one with Him, just like the Church is one. This mystery can only be understood by His Spirit. God always has a pattern of how we approach Him, how we can be completed in Him! We know when there is a completion. There is a wholeness that produces ONE!
God says in Revelation 4:1-5 and Revelation 5:6-14, come up John, and I will show you some things. He talked about the seven Spirits of God! When we speak from and for God, we begin to be messengers of God if we are in Him. A lot of people are preaching the message but their voices are not like thundering! We need to have the Seven Spirits of God to understand what the book of Revelation is talking about. Those who are the messenger are the ones full of the seven spirits of God, and they are the only ones that will be able to respond fully to any question about mysteries because they have received the completion of Him! To not be deceived, only the elect filled with it will be able to stand; otherwise, even the elect would have been deceived if God has not shortened the days (Matthew 24:22). Those days are coming ahead of us unless those days are already here as we read this.
Just as it says in Isaiah 11:1-5, the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon this new branch: “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.” The menorah has one base and seven candles (seven spirits). Now we, being the temple of God, have this menorah inside of us: it is called the Spirit 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.” The Seven Spirits of God will bring quick understanding to His people! Man’s system will never mount up to the wisdom of God. God does not have a system but a government. “But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.” A rod of His mouth…Is not His Word like a double-edged sword? Is not His Word like a hammer? His people will be controlled by the fear of the Lord, by the power of God. Here they are again: (1) The Spirit of the LORD: Which means having the Spirit as Lord (lordship, reign). (2) The Spirit of wisdom: It tells what to do. Let’s look at Solomon (1 Kings 3:16–28). He had more wisdom than any other person from his time, but it was not his wisdom but God’s wisdom in him. But that did not let him do whatever he wanted. He still needed the fear of the Lord. God will give you wisdom on the spot. When you need it! (3) The Spirit of understanding: It tells us how to do it. Understanding will show you exactly what you need to get the will of God done. Let’s look at Noah and the ark (Genesis 6). (4) The Spirit of counsel: Counsel corrects us and guides us. Let’s look at Daniel (Daniel 1:17). (5) The Spirit of power: Manifesting the power of God. Just as we see with Sampson in the natural but now all supernatural power. Things that we cannot do alone, and we know we cannot do anything without Him. Without God, we can’t do anything. Miracles: that is the power of God (6) The Spirit of knowledge: All-knowing! Knowing things that no one else knows and confounds the wise. Look at me, Shane. I don’t have education, but now God is giving me knowledge to confound the wise! Look at Peter. He confounds the wise! “Hey, who is this man? He does not speak like us.” (Matthew 7:29). Jesus spoke as a man of authority. When God speaks, there is never a question mark at the end but an exclamation. But when man speaks, there is always a question mark at the end. When we are dead, we lack none of it. But when they lack this last one, they are just making noise but have no knowledge. (7) The Spirit of the fear of the Lord which is the beginning of wisdom - If we have all the above but DO NOT have this one (the fear of the Lord), this is when we become our own god (Proverbs 9:10). But if you don’t fear Him, you won’t follow any of the other things that are not of Him. The fear of the Lord has its ignition switch. It is like the key to start a car or the lighter to light the menorah. It helps you to switch back to God! The fear of the Lord is the last spoken on the list of the seven spirits. But the Bible says that the last shall be first (Matthew 20:16). Without the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord, all the other six spirits will be put out! The fear of the Lord is humility. When you have the fear of the Lord, you know you cannot do anything without Him. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. If you don’t have the fear of the Lord, you will not follow any of the other seven spirits. But the Spirit of the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all things. If you get wisdom and understanding but don’t get the fear of the Lord, you can still be a fool.
Look at all of these passages about the fear of the Lord: The only way to get the fear of the Lord is to fear the Lord. Psalms 24:7-15 says that the meek will teach His ways. What man will fear the Lord is the way that will teach His ways. His soul shall dwell in ease! Psalms 33:18-19, Proverbs 9:9-11, Proverbs 1:28-30, Psalm 25:7-15, Psalm 33:18-19, Proverbs 22:4: There are so many promises connected to the fear of the Lord. As you read these scriptures, you will see promises that will happen when we do have the fear of the Lord and when we don’t have it. When we lose the fear of the Lord, we start to tolerate evil. But the spirit of Elijah hates evil. And God is sending His messenger and they are already here. Malachi 3:1-3 asks us, “Who will abide the day of his coming?” God is using the seven spirits of God to refine us. But if we don’t have the fear of the Lord, the refiner will leave his seat and will not purify us anymore. First of all, the Spirit of the Lord has to have that high place in our menorah. If we lose the fear of the Lord, all the lampstands will be put out! And the renewing of our minds will start to stop! Just get hold of the fear of the Lord again. Stop identifying yourself as a sinner. If God does not remember your sins anymore, why do you keep calling yourself an ex-sinner? Malachi did not understand what he was saying. Isaiah did not understand it. The Spirit would come upon them and would lift up! I am talking about full understanding and mysteries that have been held until the time set before the foundation of the world. But now we have it! It came to stay! The seven spirits of God came to stay! Ten virgins were mentioned in Matthew 25:1-13. Five have the fear of the Lord. They obey the Word, they read the Word, they pray, they fast, they respect His ways. And five did not have the fear of the Lord. When things get tough, they started scrambling! That is why we come together to hear the rod of His tongue! To be aligned by and filled with his seven spirits! People who do not fear Him will make themselves gods. They will hear their own desire. They will be led by a stranger, by strange voices thinking it is God’s voice.
Malachi 4:2 says, “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” These kinds of calves are fed with the best grass! He made me to lay down in green pastures (Psalm 23). Remember the law of Moses…Now He says, “Remember My Word. My words are Spirit – the seven spirits – My words are life.” They could prophesy in part, but now we can understand more and have more understanding. But now the Church that does not believe in the gifts of the Spirit cannot receive the seven spirits of God. They are foolish virgins! They are the ones that rely on man, self-help, selfish ambition, and vain glory. They use the patterns of God, the gifts of God, and the name of God to promote their own dream and vision, not to become a slave of His Glory. God has already exposed them all. Those who can see are lit!
I believe the Church has the Spirit of Elijah, which is the Spirit of the Lord! David came in the Spirit of the Lord! David knew and had wisdom in how to win the battle. David knew that he had it. No need to use Saul’s armor. He knew, “I’ve got everything: Wisdom, strategy, the power of the Lord.” Five stones! There is all you need! To man, David did not have enough. To man, he was too small. To man, he was too young. To man, he was not the one. That is who God loves to ignite more than anyone else, not those who know everything, nor those that man’s wisdom has enticed them, but those who have total reliance on the Spirit of the Lord – on all seven of them!
Luke 1:12-17 says that the Spirit of the fear of the Lord will bring people back to Jesus Christ. No man can get to the Father, except through me, except through My Word. Don’t you know because of sin the whole world became children of satan, but now all that repent and are born again are now crying out, Abba Father? There is another fatherhood taking place, and these ones will be filled with the same Spirit of the fear of the Lord and will be filled with respect and honor towards this new Father. These are the new breed filled with the Spirit of the Lord! They will not strive for attention. They will not fulfill their own heart’s desire but the will of the Lord.
Greater are we right now than John the Baptist. He came to be a witness of what is to come. Without measure! The Spirit with measure only is given to people like the sons of Eli, but to those with the fear of the Lord, the completion is given! Those to whom the Spirit of the Lord is Lord have the full measure! He is the trunk of the tree, and we are the branches coming out! We are the offspring of Christ. Remember, we are the priests. We are called to rule and reign, but when you don’t have the fear of the Lord, all the other spirits begin to dominate you and will be part of you! We are to grow into the full stature and measure of Christ (Ephesians 4:13-29). Now the temple’s menorah is the seven spirits of God inside of you! What does it mean to be a laid-down lover? To let our dreams, our motives, and all the things the world promises be burned in His Holy Fire.
Look at Luke 4:13-21. Even Jesus - being fully man - had to wait to receive the fullness of the Spirit. After the temptation, Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit (Spirit of might). He taught in the synagogues and was glorified by all (spirit of wisdom, of knowledge, and understanding). “And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel… to preach the wisdom, the understanding, and the counsel with the following signs of power. What happened to Elijah? He came to make a wicked way straight - that is change happening. A straight way! A narrow way! A powerless church is a church without God; a church without God is a church without His Spirit. A church without the Spirit is not a church at all! No gifts, no God; no power, no God; no fire, no God. What we called God is just a form (2 Timothy 3:5-7) if it is lacking any of these. The Bible says in this passage to turn away from these types that creep in with strange fire and with the desire of this world.
Continue… “preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives” (verse 18). The anointing does not uplift people. It breaks the yoke. Power! Power! Power! That is why the enemy tries to remove the power from within the church! We have to continue to believe that! When we fear God, we will see these manifestations. Don’t fear man, don’t fear your family, your father-in-law, and certainly, do not fear your wife! Fear the Lord and make every other place straight in your life. If you fear the Lord, you will know to whom, when, and what you need to do. The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord! Fear the Lord, and He will do all the rest. When you fear the Lord, you will stop doing things your way. You will listen to the Body, you will humble yourself to the anointing, and you will receive peace and joy. The fear of the Lord is healthy. We don’t fear the Lord because of fear of Him but love for him. The goodness and the love of God plus the fear of the Lord makes us righteous. Too much fear of the Lord without the revelation of our identity is dangerous. We need both. Healthy fear is a healthy walk.
Every time somebody is born again, we are doing this: “… and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised” (Luke 4:18). The messenger will preach the Gospel, but the Spirit of understanding in you will help them to understand. If we speak, we need to speak as the oracles of God (1 Peter 4:11). God will not tell you to say something if you are not rooted and grounded in it already! Two or three witnesses backing your word can be a miracle, it could be transformation, it could be a blind one seeing. All we need is to make the Spirit of the Lord our Lord, and the fear of the Lord will bring in all the fullness of His Spirit! The blessings of the Lord will overtake those who fear the Lord. This is the word of the Lord! So many things I don’t have to tell you, the Spirit of wisdom will tell you what to do. Everything that Jesus said has to be fulfilled in our days! “And he began to say unto them, this day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears” (Luke 4:21). Wow, it has been fulfilled in their ears, but now, it has to be fulfilled to every eye to see through us, His Church! We must see it! The problem is when you don’t fear the Lord, you won’t even listen to the wisdom of the others who do fear the Lord.
They say, “Enoch and Elijah are coming back as the two witnesses because of their carnal minds!” But who are they? But what are these, Lord? (Zechariah 4). Zechariah did not know. He was humble and said, “I did not know.” A proudful mindset will say they know everything. They created their own timeline and keep changing it when they see they are wrong. Fear, fear, fear. Fake, fake, fake. But God will reveal everything to the humble. “Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts” (verse 6). By His Spirit! By the seven spirits of God wrapped into one called the Holy Spirit within His Church! I can do all things through Christ, in the fear of the Lord!
Many will know that Jesus is building His house where the gates of hell will not prevail because “My church will have the fear of the Lord; My Church will be submitted to my Spirit!” Zerubbabel’s understanding back then is for us today! The end-time message can put all together through wisdom and understanding! They can understand what Zechariah and Zerubbabel could not understand. God is building His church by the Seven Spirits of God! The church is never a building by the hand of man. By the fear of the Lord, we become that masterpiece. We are part of the plan! Who has despised the small beginnings? The seven spirits of the Lord are the eyes of the Lord which run to and fro and now it is on us – in the real church filled with the fear of the Lord! He was prophesying the end-time message. Fill the lamp with oil because the bridegroom is coming. Only the Spirit of understanding can help us to understand it. “What are these two olives branches that through the pipe empty the oil out of themselves?” (Zechariah 4:12). These are the two anointed ones that stand by the Lord! I am telling you, that is not Elijah, that is not Enoch, that is US! The spirit of Elijah is the Spirit of the Lord! Paul talks about being grafted in (Jew and Gentiles becoming one), one new man in Christ! One new man in Christ! Revelation is only to be interpreted by the Spirit of God for those who have an ear to hear. So many think and say they have ears to hear because they told are that, but all who fear Him know Him and follow, and their fruit of hearing is manifested.
God is spirit, and we need to worship Him in the Spirit (seven spirits)! The same glory that God gave Him, He gives to us! All that came after the Word, that is us! The more we know who we are and what is to come, the more we fear Him! The more we know Him because He is the fear of the Lord, that should happen to us. The fear of the Lord just happens. I see the hope as it is! These are the two anointing one! Now the baptism of the Holy Spirit means to be the baptism of the 7 Spirits of God that the one! At the top of the menorah, the highest candle is the SPIRIT OF THE LORD!!! The Bible in Proverbs 20:27 says that we are the candle of the Lord. It is not going to be about only two people. They can’t kill the Church! Nobody can kill the Church! We cannot understand these things without having the Spirit as Lord and all the seven spirits within it. To produce fruits, it has to have a yielding to the Lord. So, we can have all knowledge, all wisdom, all understanding, and all power. The two anointed ones, one new man in Christ Jesus. As the glory covers the sea, His church will cover the Earth.
Give us the healthy fear of the Lord. So that we begin to work on our minds, on our thinking, because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. We shall be the son of thunder! We will stand! Ten thousand shall fall but we will stand. Death shall come to us, but we shall overcome death. God will not do anything until He shows us first. There are no surprises in the fear of the Lord. We shall know all things! We shall understand all things. Spirit of completion! This is the gospel! The Spirit is upon us who have been baptized into Christ, who have been born again! God, keep filling us more and more. We will become a raging fire! For those who have the fear of the Lord shall do exploits! O Father, baptize us in the fear of the Lord! In the seven spirits of the Lord! Let us never depart from it! O Father, baptize us in the fear of the Lord! You are our completion. You are the One who is and will be forever!
