    • The Importance of the Seven Spirits of God in Ministry Expression (Part 1)

     

    We have heard so often that “God equips those whom He calls”. Well, He does indeed, and the life and ministry of Jesus Christ was the first fruits of this principle for this season of kingdom administration. The fundamental equipping graces in the Life of Jesus were described in Isaiah 11:2: “And the sprit of the Lord shall rest upon Him and the spirit of wisdom, and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge, and of the fear of the Lord.”

     

    Representing the fullness of God, these seven spirits equipped the Lord Jesus to walk in heavenly authority in an earthly realm. We can fully document that each one of these dimensions were dynamically active and critical in the practical walk of Jesus while he was fulfilling His earthly ministry. God’s intent in this was that Jesus would be first fruit of all seven of these spirits of God resting upon one man with the express intent that He would be completely equipped to do the work of the Father. John 1:16 declares that we also are equipped with the fullness of Jesus:  “And of His fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.”

     

    The Father demonstrates His love for each of us by administering grace to us, and enabling grace to work through us. One dimension of this grace is the aspect of His spiritual “tools” or technology. We need to know what tools God uses to accomplish His purposes in the earth. God has put many of these tools on display in the lives and ministries of His men and women in the Old and New Testaments. God is able to do all things and anything but He utilizes different tools (spiritual graces) in order to accomplish His perfect will. Because we were made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26) we are uniquely designed from the beginning to embody the character and nature of God in the earth realm and have been given access to many of His tools and technology.

     

    The Seven spirits of God are literally tools and technology that God uses to accomplish His will in heaven and earth. The first example of Jesus walking in the first mentioned dimension of the seven spirits of God, i.e., The Spirit of the Lord is prophetically declared in Isaiah 61:1 and practically declared in Luke 4:18,19: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and the recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

     

    This first dimension of the seven spirits of God was foundational to launch the ministry of Jesus. It is also fundamental in the launch of our ministries presently. Through The grace of The Spirit of the Lord, Jesus received: Identity, Direction, Assignment and Authority. The Spirit of the Lord was the fundamental launching pad for supernatural efficacy in the ministry of Christ.

     

    Today we have many gifted writers that have attempted to articulate the best-case practices of ministry expression. None, however, can explain it any better than God Himself. Every expression of the ministry of the Lord must begin with The Spirit of the Lord. May we lay hold of this revelation so that we can establish ministry that is an expression of the kingdom of God and not the kingdom of man.
