Title: The Spirits of God
Post by: Stephen Levi on May 22, 2014, 09:33:48 PM
Revelation, Chapter 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;

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Very good my friend.  You know how to quote the Bible.  It seems like you have given us four verses of wisdom.

What else can you do?

Welcome to the forum, Stephen Levi.   :)
Thank you my friend, how are you doing?

I'm OK.  The number 7 represents fullness or completion - like there are 7 days in the week or there are 7 Ecumenical Councils, etc.

I will stop doing it. Unless the Spirit of the Lord instructed me other wise.

Leviticus 13:41

And if a man's hair falls out from his forehead, he has baldness of the forehead; he is clean.

Micah 1:16

Make yourselves bald and cut off your hair, for the children of your delight; make yourselves as bald as the eagle, for they shall go from you into exile.

Acts 18:18

After this, Paul stayed many days longer and then took leave of the brothers and set sail for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila. At Cenchreae he had cut his hair, for he was under a vow.

Ezekiel 29:18

“Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre. Every head was made bald, and every shoulder was rubbed bare, yet neither he nor his army got anything from Tyre to pay for the labor that he had performed against her.

Ezekiel 27:31

They make themselves bald for you and put sackcloth on their waist, and they weep over you in bitterness of soul, with bitter mourning.

2 Kings 2:23-24

He went up from there to Bethel, and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” And he turned around, and when he saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the woods and tore forty-two of the boys.

Acts 21:24

Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses, so that they may shave their heads. Thus all will know that there is nothing in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself also live in observance of the law.

Leviticus 13:40


“If a man's hair falls out from his head, he is bald; he is clean.

I do write in plain English, Stephen. OP means opening post in a forum thread.
You are a stubborn soul, I know that about you.

That's pretty cool.

So, I see that you're going around to a bunch of other forums and posting the same thing.

I also saw that you're from San Antonio!
Which is awesome. So, who do you have winning the Western Conference finals? Without Ibaka, the Thunder's going to have a hard time beating the Spurs.

What does God think? I bet he's a Popovitch fan.  

I am direct connected to God by the Holy Ghost at all times.

San Antonio's an awesome town. Used to have a friend that worked at the Express-News, so I got to visit a bunch. Really like Esquire Bar in downtown, too -- great hamburgers.

Welcome to OC.net, Stephen.
 Just a couple of things here; if you want people to take you seriously, please don't be tedious, and please do be polite.
   We all are trying to do the Will of God - it is, after all a matter of theosis - but to say that 'the Spirit of the Lord (told me...) implies that you have a direct line to Heaven.
   Now if you trying to find out what are the Seven Spirits of God referred to in Revelation, you would do well to get a commentary on the Book of Revelation. Start by doing a 'google search.'
Your parish priest could very well have one he'd lend you.

One thing that never works is to 'cherry-pick' proof-texts - This Book/chap.verse says -- without looking at the entire context of the text.

I look forward to a reasoned discussion with you in the future.

I do not appreciate you referring to me as a troll.  It is written... do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  This is a commandment of Jesus Christ, to which you will tell me is your Lord and Savior.

Revelation, Chapter 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;

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.

I'll try again from the beginning. You have posted three passages from the Book of Revelation. You say that the Spirit inspired you to do so.

1. The Spirit of Justification: "...you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God." We are all justified because of God's grace and by our faith, and it is the Spirit of God who draws us and empowers us to acknowledge Jesus as our Lord and Savior (1 Corinthians 12:3). This is the first work of the Spirit when one is born again.  (1 Corinthians 6:11) And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

2. The Spirit of Sanctification: 2 Thessalonians 2:13, "...God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth." Sanctification is the process of God's grace by which the believer is separated from sin, purified by life lived in the Spirit. (Galatians 5:16, 25 and Romans 8:1-14) The fruit of the Spirit will begin to manifest as we yield to the process of sanctification.

3. The Spirit of Life: Romans 8:2, "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death." This is the Spirit of adoption (Romans 8:15) which makes us the sons of God (Romans 8:16-19). We can now live in the resurrection power of Christ where the operation of the gifts of the Spirit cause our lives to become supernatural. The Spirit will give life to our mortal bodies. Healing and strength will come into our bodies of flesh (Romans 8:11) as well as giving us a glorified body in that day.

4. The Spirit of Truth: John 14:17 "The Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you." The truth will set us free. The truth will bring revelation knowledge as we are taught by the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of truth will reveal Jesus to us (John 15:26). Vision will be given to lead us into all truth and reveal the kingdom to us. Deception will be removed, and the lies destroyed.

5. The Spirit of Wisdom: Ephesians 1:17, "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him." Not only will the Spirit give us a knowledge of Jesus, but it will give us insight into His mind and what He is doing (1 Corinthians 2:6-16). The Holy Spirit is our teacher (John 14:26).

6. The Spirit of Deliverance: Matthew 12:28 "But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you." It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that we are delivered from sin and by that same Spirit demons are cast out and the powers of darkness are defeated.

7. The Spirit of Prayer: Romans 8:26, "Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." Ephesians 6:18 tells us that all prayer should be done in the Spirit.

Isaiah 11:2 ( New International Version)

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—

+1!  Exactly!  When you post something, please give us an original purpose.  Don't just post something and expect us to figure out what you want.  Otherwise, that's trolling behavior, not welcoming behavior as part of the oc.net community.

When you posted the verses, it could be a couple of things, whether you're confused about them, or you want to know if there are any ancient commentaries about them, or if there was a dogmatic belief on 7 spirits as has been understood, etc.  But to quote four verses without stating your purpose can mean many things.  It can mean some Hindu sage who wishes to use verses and then teach us his own heresies throughout the thread.  And I'm not making that up.  We had a lot of unwelcome visitors of the forum trolling our site.

Stephen,

Welcome to the forum.

One of our Ethiopian Orthodox members started a "verses" thread in the Oriental Orthodox section, where people can post verses.

http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,29778.0.html#top

That would be an appropriate place to post verses without questions or discussion.  Elsewhere, it doesn't really make sense since this is a discussion forum.

Romans, Chapter 8, 2: For the law of the Spirit of life in
Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

Revelation, Chapter 11, 11: And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

The Seven Spirits of God

1. The Spirit of Life

2. The Spirit of Prophecy

Revelation, Chapter 19, 10:   And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus
is the spirit of prophecy.

Revelation, Chapter 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;

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.
Aprigngius of Beja considered the seven spirits to be the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Oecumenius  considered the seven spirits to be angels.  Andrew of Caserea considered them to be either one or the other.  Prmasius considered them to be the Holy Spirit.  I retrieved this information from Revelation / edited by William C. Weinrich (Ancient Christian commentary on Scripture, New Testament; v. 12).

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  When I see something worth discussing with someone, I will do so.  I avoid vain and foolish questions, as it is written...

2 Timothy, Chapter 2, 23:    But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

Humility doesn't seem to be your strong suit.

Are you humble? Yes or no?

The Lord instructed me to ask you is humility is your strong suit.  Yes or no?

Matthew, Chapter 7, 6: Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Mark 9:35
And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”

I'll try again from the beginning. You have posted three passages from the Book of Revelation. You say that the Spirit inspired you to do so. This may be true, but what people are asking for, is the purpose, with which these passages have been posted. What are you trying to tell us with this? This is what people have been asking for.
Here is 1 purpose, to discuss the scriptures that I posted, with anyone who will do so with me. Do you need any more?

So you want to discuss the meaning of the passages? Great!
This was what people asked about in the beginning.

I cannot, at the moment, tell you what the Church teaches, concerning this issue, though other poster may be able to do so. However, I will try and see if I can find anything.

Of course, I would also like to hear your input.


+1!  Exactly!  When you post something, please give us an original purpose.  Don't just post something and expect us to figure out what you want.  Otherwise, that's trolling behavior, not welcoming behavior as part of the oc.net community.

When you posted the verses, it could be a couple of things, whether you're confused about them, or you want to know if there are any ancient commentaries about them, or if there was a dogmatic belief on 7 spirits as has been understood, etc.  But to quote four verses without stating your purpose can mean many things.  It can mean some Hindu sage who wishes to use verses and then teach us his own heresies throughout the thread.  And I'm not making that up.  We had a lot of unwelcome visitors of the forum trolling our site.
What do you know about The Spirit of Life? Tell me?

Have you looked at the Nicene Creed -  which Orthodox recite at every Liturgy because it contains the total of our beliefs in God:
I believe in one God;
  the Father Almighty......
  and in one  Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God .....
  and in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life..........

This is what we believe about the Life-Giver. It is through Him that we are sustained and nourished, it is through Him that we receive the Grace of God, for He is God.
He is everywhere present and fills all things; it is He who abides in us, cleanses us from every stain of sin, and saves our souls.
He is God.

Stephen;
perhaps you didn't understand.
I am in 'control' of myself.
Because of God's grace, freely given by Him, I can choose to obey Him, or not; by my own free will. I try, not very successfully always, to live following the Beatitudes and the two Great Commandments.
   I am supported in this by the Giver of Life - the Holy Spirit- God Himself when I am willing to obey Him; but I am in control of my own life and can refuse His Grace at any time.

Hebrews, Chapter 10, 26:   For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,



This is wht we have the Church. Here is what St John Chrysostom says:

Quote
For if we sin willfully, after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment, and fiery indignation which shall devour the adversaries.

1. Trees which have been planted, and have had the advantage of all other care, and the hands and the labors of the cultivator, and yet yield no return for the labors, are pulled up by the roots, and handed over to the fire. So somewhat of this kind takes place also in the case of our Illumination.  For when Christ has planted us, and we have enjoyed the watering of the Spirit, and then show no fruit; fire, even that of Hell, awaits us, and flame unquenchable.

Paul therefore having exhorted them to love and to bringing forth the fruit of good works, and having urged them from the kindlier [considerations] (What are these? That we have an entrance into the holy of holies, the new way which He has inaugurated for us. Hebrews 10:20), does the same again from the more gloomy ones, speaking thus. For having said, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another, and so much the more, as you see the day approaching Hebrews 10:25, this being sufficient for consolation, he added, For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth. There is need, he means, of good works, yea, very great need, For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins. You were cleansed; you were set free from the charges against you, you have become a son. If then thou return to your former vomit, there awaits you on the other hand excommunication and fire and whatever such things there are. For there is no second sacrifice.

2. At this place we are again assailed by those who take away repentance, and by those who delay to come to baptism. The one saying, that it is not safe for them to come to baptism, since there is no second remission: And the other asserting that it is not safe to impart the mysteries to those who have sinned, if there is no second remission.

What shall we say then to them both? That he does not take away repentance, nor the propitiation through repentance, nor does he thrust away and cast down with despair the fallen. He is not thus an enemy of our salvation; but what? He takes away the second Washing. For he did not say, no more is there repentance, or no more is there remission, but no more is there a sacrifice, that is, there is no more a second Cross. For this is what he means by sacrifice. For by one sacrifice, he says, He has perfected forever them that are sanctified Hebrews 10:14; not like the Jewish [rites.]. For this reason he has treated so much throughout concerning the Sacrifice, that it is one, even one; not wishing to show this only, that herein it differed from the Jewish [rites], but also to make [men] more steadfast, so that they might no longer expect another sacrifice according to the Jewish law.

For, says he, if we sin willfully. See how he is disposed to pardon. He says, if we sin willfully, so that there is pardon for those [who sin] not willfully. After the knowledge of the truth: He either means, of Christ, or of all doctrines. There remains no more sacrifice for sins, but what? A certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation which shall devour the adversaries. By Adversaries he means not the unbelievers, but those also who do what is against virtue; or [else he means] that the same fire shall receive them of the household also, which [receives] the adversaries. Then expressing its devouring nature, he says, as if giving it life, fiery indignation which shall devour the adversaries. For as a wild beast when irritated and very fierce and savage, would not rest till it could lay hold on some one and eat him up; so also that fire, like one goaded by indignation, whatever it can lay hold of does not let go, but devours and tears it to pieces.

3. Next he adds also the reason of the threat, that it is on good grounds, that it is just; for this contributes to confidence, when we show that it is just.

Revelation, Chapter 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;

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.

Revelation, Chapter 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.

I'll try again from the beginning. You have posted three passages from the Book of Revelation. You say that the Spirit inspired you to do so. This may be true, but what people are asking for, is the purpose, with which these passages have been posted. What are you trying to tell us with this? This is what people have been asking for.
Here is 1 purpose, to discuss the scriptures that I posted, with anyone who will do so with me. Do you need any more?

So you want to discuss the meaning of the passages? Great!
This was what people asked about in the beginning.

I cannot, at the moment, tell you what the Church teaches, concerning this issue, though other poster may be able to do so. However, I will try and see if I can find anything.

Of course, I would also like to hear your input.


+1!  Exactly!  When you post something, please give us an original purpose.  Don't just post something and expect us to figure out what you want.  Otherwise, that's trolling behavior, not welcoming behavior as part of the oc.net community.

When you posted the verses, it could be a couple of things, whether you're confused about them, or you want to know if there are any ancient commentaries about them, or if there was a dogmatic belief on 7 spirits as has been understood, etc.  But to quote four verses without stating your purpose can mean many things.  It can mean some Hindu sage who wishes to use verses and then teach us his own heresies throughout the thread.  And I'm not making that up.  We had a lot of unwelcome visitors of the forum trolling our site.

I know that I am not worthy of His grace, and yet He is ever-merciful to me.

I wish I could say the opposite about you.  But it is evident you are like a vile man who gives a stone to those who seek bread:


"If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" (Luke 11)

And all this time I'm requesting something, and you tell me I don't know?  As for you:

I know that I am not worthy of His grace, and yet He is ever-merciful to me.
There are going to be countless of those in the lake of fire.

By the way that is one of the points of this thread.  You do not know anything about the Spirits of God.

I wish I could say the opposite about you.  But it is evident you are like a vile man who gives a stone to those who seek bread:


"If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!" (Luke 11)

And all this time I'm requesting something, and you tell me I don't know?  As for you:

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works." (1 Cor. 11)

So you have mercy for you but none for me?

I speak for myself.  But as for you, the spirit that is in you is not of the Lord.  You come in a form of deception, and the Lord is not a spirit of deception.  You say you want to discuss the verses and share the Bible, but in fact, you come implying the lake of fire and ignorance on others.  But with someone of your delusions, I type in vain, unfortunately.

For us cognition takes place in our central endothermic chamber, located below our third heart, in about the same place as the left hip in humans. We then expel our thoughts in the form of a pleasant smelling vapor through a central vent hole, and our fellows then inhale and instantaneously understand what we are thinking. Upon seeing the orifice in question we mistakenly thought humans communicated the same way. We were horrified when we learnt that it was actually a waste evacuation tube! Nonetheless, some of our scientists rather enjoyed watching the humans wiggle around during the process, so we left further experimentation in their capable tentacles.

According to my experience, It seems that Stephen come from Charismatic Church.

As what I know, some extreme Charismatic Christians like to claim that they can hear the voice of Holy Spirit and see the pictures/ visions all the time. They always tell people Holy Spirit guide them to do this, or order them not to do something. They always claim that they will not take any actions without the instruction of Holy Spirit, even just a small incident. (Give a image to themselves and others that they are very spiritual christians! )

Moreover, they believe all men have the power and even responsibility to heal others and cast out the demons. They like to share all these experiences to others in public as well.

Hello LBK,
I am surprised that you kept up with his banter as long as you did. I knew a Pastor years ago, who had a fellow come up to him and tell him that "the Lord told me that you are to give me your pickup truck". The Pastor told him "that's wonderful, and when the Lord tells me the same thing, I'll give it to you". Well, the Lord never told the Pastor to give the fellow his truck. For someone to use "the Lord told me to" for something that he can't even continue on with a descent discussion, makes me doubt who he really is listening to, if anyone.

The Pastor told him "that's wonderful, and when the Lord tells me the same thing, I'll give it to you". Well, the Lord never told the Pastor to give the fellow his truck. For someone to use "the Lord told me to" for something that he can't even continue on with a descent discussion, makes me doubt who he really is listening to, if anyone.
I do not have to ask anyone for anything.  I just speak it and so be it.

They see everything you do in heaven.  They see you disrespecting God and His name and His anointed.

So go for it...do it all you so desire.

You are the one that is accountable for it.

Not me.

  Stephen Levi can you please cut to the chase and just please tell us what your Denomination/Background is please. Can you please give us some basic information on your theology and doctrines that you believe ? That way we can just cut through the nonsense and get a clear view of who you are and what you are about. Also, so we can understand why you are posting in the manner you are.  

    Are you a Trinitarian ?

[/size]

I think it's safe to say that everyone reading this thread would like to know the answers to these questions.

How 'bout it, Stephen?

Still waiting for answers to the above, Stephen.
