Revelation 4:5 (KJV) Wherever God Is

Revelation 4:5 (KJV)
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.

The Spirit of God, first seen in this book in Revelation 1:4, and throughout the letters to the seven churches, is seen again in Revelation four (and will be again in chapter five). The working of the Spirit in the churches (hinted at be the mention of the seven lamps of fire) has moved from the earth to heaven where the believers are now represented to be.

  • Wherever God is, believers will be found as the mark of true faith is that they follow the Lord
  • Wherever believers are, a local church will be found as the character of Christians is to assemble into churches.
  • Wherever there is a church the Holy Spirit will be found as the great work of the Holy Spirit is among the churches
  • Wherever the Spirit is there will be Christ as He loved the church and gave Himself for it

Revelation 3:1 (KJV) As Christ Directs

Revelation 3:1 (KJV)
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.

 

I think John Gill is on track when, of Revelation 1:4 he writes, “…by these seven spirits are intended the Holy Spirit of God, who is one in his person, but his gifts and graces are various; and therefore he is signified by this number, because of the fulness and perfection of them…”

 

The Lord Jesus claims possession of the stars or angels (pastors) as well as that of the seven Spirits of God. His possession speaks of his authority over. The pastor of each church is subject to Christ. He is not in charge but he is under the direction of the Lord.

 

The same may be said of the Spirit of God. Though He is co-eternal and equal to Christ in every way He is subjected to Christ in the same manner that Christ is subjected to the Father. The Spirit’s ministry upon churches, each loved of Christ, is directed by Christ. The

  • perfections,
  • completions, and
  • fullnesses

of the Holy Spirit are poured out to Christ’s own churches as Christ directs.
