When you hear or read the title, “The
Seven Spirits of God” for the first time, the first question that will likely come up in your mind is, Does this mean God has seven Holy Spirits?
The Bible does show that there are “Seven Spirits of God.” It however behooves us to understand exactly what this means and how it applies to us in the New Covenant.
To start with, the number Seven (7) is regarded by the Hebrew people as a sacred number, and throughout the Bible it is used to symbolize perfection, fullness, abundance, rest, and completion. The “Seven Spirits of God” therefore implies a “completeness” or “fullness” of the Holy Spirit, and this fullness of the Spirit is what every Christian ought to have, for it is our birthright.
One time, a highly-revered minister (whom I also hold in very high regard) said something many believers have accepted: that only Jesus didn’t have the Holy Spirit by measure, but every one of us born again, Spirit-filled believers has the Spirit by measure.
Well, I don’t buy that because it’s not in the Bible! The reason many Christians have accepted this is that they don’t understand the manifestations and capabilities of the Holy Spirit. They figure that the only way He can spread Himself throughout the whole world is to be in Jesus fully and in each of us in smaller measures. The truth, however, is that when you were born again and you received the Holy Ghost, you didn’t receive Him in a measure; you received all of Him!
