This is the second in a series of older Coffee Breaks that I’m re-publishing while I’m taking time to finish a new series. Each one of the experiences reported here make it clear that when people make up their minds and settle things in their spirits, they can make an appointment with God in order to see the finish of that which they are asking of the Lord.
Good Morning, all you blessed people! I’m at work in a new series, and not quite finished with it yet. That said, For the next few weeks, I’m going to bring back some Coffee breaks that were originally written, some as much as 14 years ago. These Coffee Breaks still carry a message to the body of Christ that is as valid today as it was 14 years ago.
The whole concept of Glory is one pretty much lost on the world of today. People have become so rational, so academically-minded, so concerned with human logic that the thought of some tangible – and yet inexplicable – visible presence manifesting on a person gets lost in the translation.
Let me begin today by extracting some quotes that Holy Spirit gave to me when I was writing a book titled, EKKLESIA, THE PREPARATION OF THE BRIDE. Truth -- the genuine article -- can only come by the Spirit of Truth, which is one of the seven Spirits of God. The Spirit of Truth takes facts, takes history, takes events which have occurred -- either in our lives, or in the lives of others -- or, takes verses of scripture and applies them in a manner which brings life.
I want to focus on the fifth of these Seven Spirits of God: The Spirit of Grace and Supplications. The Hebrew word, chen, (pronounced, khane) which is derived from chanan, is both "grace," and "supplications." It represents: grace, graciousness, to have mercy upon, to make entreaty or supplication on behalf of.
As I was spending time in meditation before the Lord, the Holy Spirit began downloading revelation concerning the Spirit of Knowledge and the Fear of the Lord, so that’s where we’re going with today’s discussion.
For the third time, we take a look at the Seven Spirits of God, and the foundation for understanding them as inherent in the character and nature of God as revealed in the Word. Let me take a few minutes to break out each of the scriptures that express the Seven Spirits of God. This may be a little repetitious, but you all know the principle of 6 in the human frame.
Few subjects appear in the Word as frequently as that of Wisdom, and Understanding is not far behind. Scriptures that talk about Wisdom appear 222 times and Scriptures that deal with Understanding appear 156 times.
Have you ever noticed how many times we see the number Seven in the Word? Seven is a number in Scripture which metaphorically represents completeness — a finishing of something.
We got started last week on this look at the number, 12, and the significance it plays in the picture of the New Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem, of course, is the portrayal of the Bride of Christ John saw and wrote about in Revelation 21. Because the number 12 has such significance as a metaphor for the completed Bride, the Bride who has gone through the fire, been tested, and overcame all in order to become the Counterpart and Other Self of the Lord Jesus Christ, we see all of the other intricacies of this number unfold before us.
