The Spirit of our LORD...
Hello Brothers and Sisters,
Isaiah speaks in this chapter of a rod that will come forth out of the stem of Jesse.
Isa 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
Isa 11:2 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
These are the seven Spirits of the LORD.
Rev 1:4 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
Rev 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
Rev 4:5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
This is our LORD Jesus Christ sent forth into all the earth. Sent to teach us and show us HIS Spirit that we would learn how to be like HIM.
We have been created in "HIS Image"
Gen 1:26-27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them
Job 36:22 Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?
We are created to be "like HIM"
John 9:9 Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
All of our LORD's life on this earth HE walked in these seven Spirits because HE is these seven Spirits. These Spirits are the seven lamps before the throne of our GOD. These Spirits are the manifestation of our Father to us. Has Jesus Christ these Spirits are made physical and walked with us day to day to show us our Father physically. We are to be "like HIM"
Let's look at these Spirits. The Spirit of the LORD was all over Samson in Judges and he did mighty things. The Spirit of the LORD came upon Saul in his beginnings.
1 Sam 10:6 And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.
But Saul did not continue in this Spirit but chose rather to listen to another spirit. This is what we all must face in this sinful earth. The whispers of the evil ones are real and constant. Even to try the most faithful, for our Father would have us Strong and Righteous.
1 Sam 16:14 But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him
This Spirit of the LORD is in all the earth...
Isa 40:7 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass
Isa 40:13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?
Isa 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.
These are the words of our LORD JESUS CHRIST to the people
Father is where all this comes forth from.
Eph 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Isa 30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
Hos 4:12 My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.
Where is your counsel, wisdom, knowledge and understanding coming from? Be careful who or what whisper you let in, be very careful of what you listen to. Is it from man? or is it from God's Word. You will become what you eat. Father knows this and has taken every precaution to give us the very best opportunity to live. HE even came down and wrote with HIS own finger a covenant in stone for us. These 10 simple commandments are the straight and narrow path to righteousness. If we abide and feed our spirit and soul with this covenant daily we can overcome all the whispers of temptation. Our Father always provides a way out for each of us from temptation. It is a choice. As we dwell daily in this covenant our spirit and soul becomes this righteousness to become "like HIM" We become stronger in these manifestations of our GOD. We have the Spirit of our LORD "HIS IMAGE" within us. Let's feed it and grow it and share it!!!
As we grow and strengthen our spirit with these seven lamps before the throne of our Father, naturally will grow within us the fruits of this Spirit.
Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
(The law here is the sacrificial laws written by Moses as judgment for breaking the covenant)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
This is how we become "like HIM" HE has made it very clear and plain for all to see. What we sow on earth shall also be sown in heaven.
You have one spirit folks, the spirit you have now is the same spirit you have when you die in the earth. The spirit going to heaven will have these fruits.
Think about it.......... There can be no sin or desire for sin in Father's House ( the universe ) Would you want to have any sin in the heaven of which you will live? Sin is like leaven, if there is any in the loaf, the entire loaf is leavened ( full of sin ) We have a perfect example of this in all the earth today.
We are waiting to leave this infected place behind and rest in the Glory of our Father in the place prepared by our LORD JESUS. Learn your spirit now, fill it with the righteousness ( eternal good ) of our Father. Every soul born is born with this goodness of GOD. We get exposed to the sin very early in life and the choice begins. The whispers grow stronger and our friends seem to eager to participate. You can overcome!!! Drown your spirit in righteousness, its the essence of your being. It's there I promise you, seek it........... it will answer you in the most amazing ways. You will begin to notice little things that happen and then more of them until you fully realize, This is my Father who loves me the most!!!
God Bless You.... Love one another
