“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 the fear of the Lord.”
We have already experienced revivals in history and each one has been a revelation of some aspect of the Spirit that God has wanted to enlighten His church with.
What we see in part will be seen in full at the end of the age. The full depth of Christ can never be exhausted.
When the full measure of the seven Spirits of God have been revealed and acknowledged the bride, the body will be in the world worthy for the bridegroom to return.
Those parts of prophetic scripture which in the past have been difficult to access and as in Daniels visions locked up for future generations seem now to be anointed with greater understanding and revelation to us.
The hearts in mankind are now the temple and now is the revelation of the bride Jesus in our hearts that will complete the process of revival.
Every false form of worship will be destroyed under the Lord’s feet and we will be saved by belonging to Christ not by being just a member of a church.
The relationship of God with mankind will be the only way. Re established, universal holiness and the joy will be displaying God within the world in power.
“and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come,”
There is a supernatural realm that is revealed in Revelation showing how it is God’s will for us to access Him through this.
Deep calls to deep for the fulfilment of this.
The seven Lamp standards depicting the seven Asia Minor churches each of which Jesus speaks of what pleases him and what is displeasing to Him and they could be interpreted as the seven ages of the church through history from its birth at Pentecost as the Ephesian church, through the Smyrna, Pergamon, Thyatira, Sardis and Philadelphia to today which is thought of as the Luke warm Laodicean age.
They also depict the seven Spirits He has by the very character of the lamp stand. It is a Menorah lamp stand made of solid gold that has a central flame where the oil is poured down which in turn spreads to each of the paired branches. The decoration of golden leaves and fruits takes the harvest cycle of seed to plant to flower to fruit and harvest.
The seven flames are central Elohim on the oil feed pipe that feeds the bottom pair as Wisdom and Revelation, the next pair Council and Might the final pair as Knowledge and Reverential Fear.
These seven flames of the Spirit of the Lord also correlate to the seven colours of the spectrum red as wisdom, orange as council, yellow as knowledge, green as Elohim, blue as reverential fear, indigo as might and violet as revelation. These orders are open to other sequential interpretations.
The illustration shows the revival when the seven spirits of the Lord are anointed and active within the individuals of the body of Christ bathed in the Elohim or Yahweh spirit colour of green. The lamp stand of light within the heart and soul of each with the seven flames burning also represented by the spectrum of light illuminating and pushing the darkness back.
