Theme: …I am doing a new thing… (Isaih 43:19 NIV)



Topic: Holy Spirit – The Missing Ingredient

Texts: Acts 1.8; & 2.1-4


When you hear or read the title, “The

Seven Spirits of God” for the first time, the first

question that will likely come up in your mind is,

Does this mean God has seven Holy Spirits?

The Bible does show that there are “Seven

Spirits of God.” It however behooves us to

understand exactly what this means and how it

applies to us in the New Covenant.

To start with, the number Seven (7) is regarded

by the Hebrew people as a sacred number, and

throughout the Bible it is used to symbolize

perfection, fullness, abundance, rest, and

qTHE 8 SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD ...divine secrets to the miraculousq

completion. The “Seven Spirits of God” therefore

implies a “completeness” or “fullness” of the Holy

Spirit, and this fullness of the Spirit is what every

Christian ought to have, for it is our birthright.
