The last aspect of THE SPIRIT is the seven Spirits – as we see in Rev. 1:4, 4:5, and 5:6, in the book of Revelation the Spirit is “the seven Spirits of God”. This does not mean that there are seven separate Spirits today, but that the one Spirit of God has been intensified sevenfold to accomplish the economy of God and to consummate the New Jerusalem! Today in this age of degradation the Spirit has been intensified sevenfold for the producing of the overcomers and for the consummation of the New Jerusalem! All the elements that compose the compound Spirit are intensified today – the Spirit today is an all-inclusive Spirit! Particularly, in Rev. 5:6 we see that the seven eyes of the Lamb are the seven Spirits of God,
And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a Lamb standing as having just been slain, having seven horns and seven eeyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
The seven eyes of the Lamb are for searching, judging, refining, and enlightening – and ultimately they are for transfusing us with His essence, His divine element. Whenever we are searched, purged, refined, and judged by the flaming eyes of Christ, we gain something of Him! Yes, we are being purified and refined, but we also get something more of God – His element is being infused into us! And this is for the building – through this process, God builds us up together and He carries out God’s building. As a result of the purifying and transfusing of the seven eyes of Christ – which is the sevenfold intensified Spirit working within us – the New Jerusalem is being built up! The seven eyes of Christ as the sevenfold intensified Spirit look at God’s chosen people and enlighten them, search them, judge them, purify them, and refine them – ultimately infusing them with whatever He is! All the elements of the compound Spirit have been intensified sevenfold and are now infused into us! By this infusion with God’s element, we are being made the same as He is – we are transformed from being natural into being the same as God is! Then, we become the transformed material for the building up of the New Jerusalem!
From this we see that the seven Spirits – the sevenfold intensified Spirit – are for the building up of the Body of Christ. In Exodus 25 the seven lamps are for the building up of the tabernacle(they enlighten the priests as the enter the tent of meeting, and they can move freely – this move is for the building up). In Zechariah 3 and 4 the seven lamps are for the recovery of God’s building. In Revelation it is the same – if we have an overall view of the book of Revelation we will see that the seven Spirits are absolutely for God’s building! What God desires to have is not a group of individualistic spiritual persons – He wants a group of built-up transformed believers! He doesn’t want a heap of precious stones for exhibition and praise – God wants a built-up New Jerusalem with all the transformed believers as the precious stones built into the city! This is what THE SPIRIT is for today – the Spirit has been intensified sevenfold for God’s building! [sharing inspired from the life-study of Revelation msg. 22, as quote in the HWMR on The Central Line of the Bible]
Come, o, Seven Spirits, Come! May the purifying and judging work be done in us! Purify and remove everything in us that is not for the building of God! Thank You Lord for being the sevenfold intensified Spirit today as the seven eyes of the Lamb going forth into all the earth! You are now looking at us to enlighten us and search us! Lord, trasfuse Youself into us more today! Make us more the same as You are in life and nature! May all the elements of the compound Spirit be transfused into our being – by our looking to You today!
