Do you have anything to actually discuss about the Christian faith, Stephen? Because that is the purpose of this forum.


You will just have to wait till the thread has run it's course then you can rightfully judge that for your own self. Not for the others that read it.

If I thought what you though about what is posted on this thread.

I would not read it.

So why are you reading what I have to say if what you say about what I have to say is what you have said?

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.
To sum up the will of God in the book of Revelation, do this:  "Love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind.  And love your neighbor as yourself."

You're on a direct line to God? As. We. Speak?

Could you ask him how old the earth is? We were arguing about that over in another thread -- might as well go straight to the head man, himself!

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.

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.

You just made him seem more important. Now I feel there could be wisdom I am missing outside the church. You did not reply to him gently and be quick to listen as the apostles taught. Nicodemus said does our law judge a man before it hears him?

First one must hear him and then one must not feed the troll if he is rude. You proved all the church is incompetent to hear others

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.

I know you would not appreciate me referring to you as a troll.

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.

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?

Yes, we do. Firstly, posting blank passages without adding anything else is no way to start a discussion. Secondly, what other purposes do you have for starting this thread?

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.

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.

If I thought what you though about what is posted on this thread.

I would not read it.

So you can read my mind, can you? Only God can do that.
He also can tell me what you you are thinking in your mind.

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.

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—
