We've talked about our granddaughter, Jessica, (now seven years old) many times throughout the past few years and the rather spectacular things she's come out with, her experiences with the Lord, her boldness to lay hands on others and command healing, and the revelations she's had. We have another young one in our midst who is apparently coming up the same way. Rich and DeAngela Warren have been an integral part of River Worship Center for more than two years, and are worship leaders in our fellowship.
Neville Johnson is a former pastor of one of the largest churches in Australia and currently travels the world sharing foundational teaching with the body of Christ. He has a strong prophetic anointing and has a real sense of what God is doing and saying to His people now.
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.
