7 SPIRITS OF GOD

The Spirit of Judgment:
Charles Pinkney
(The Zeal of My Father's House has Eaten me up!)


The 7 Spirits of God are spoken of in the Book of Revelation as going forth through all the earth to affect God's purposes:   Throughout scripture there are various references to specific spirits sent by God to impact or anoint people. Some writers have focused on the messianic text of Isaiah 11as the key to the 7 Spirits taken from one  single location:
(Isaiah 11:2) The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
Although it is convenient to assume this single text answers the identity of the seven spirits. I am not thoroughly persuaded that these comprise the seven Spirits. There remain so many other references throughout the Bible that seem to contend for spiritual anointings of God. So, I have compiled on my own list. I will maintain an open mind toward this mystery until the day comes that the Lord gives me perfect clarity about this question. In the mean time, I do not think we should be dogmatic about an official list of the seven spirits but share the wisdom and insights that seem to apply. Charles Pinkney

The Spirit of Judgment:

Spirit of Burning

(The Zeal of God is as a Consuming Fire)


The study of the "Zeal of God" encompasses the entire domain of God's anger, wrath and judgment and those upon whom it is directed. In the time of the Old Covenant we see prophets and judges who exercised God's judgment against the unrighteous nations. These idolatrous, wicked nations served demon gods. Almighty God commanded their destruction.

The dispensation of Grace began the Times of the Gentiles. It is the time of the open door and gentiles partake of the covenant offered previously only to Israel and the Jews. It was a time that was spoken of by O.Testament prophets and declared at the time of Jesus (Jeshua's) dedication at the temple in Jerusalem.

After Jesus' ministry, the dispensation of the church age began and with church age the focus of this spirit of judgment lifted.
The harsh penalties of the law were lifted as well. Jesus was named as "our passover, crucified for us."
We of this covenant no longer come against people who act wickedly, the Lord's example was to forgive and bless those who do evil. Yet we see the Spirit of Judgment and zeal demonstrated by Jesus. It was however, directed against those in the world of religion who withstood the Spirit of God. The cleansing of the temple accounts reflects the zeal of God. We call this kind of anointing righteous anger.

Today our enemies are revealed to be spiritual and not in flesh. Today, prayers of imprecation (asking for vengeance and destruction of our enemies) as spoken by the prophets and psalmist are appropriate only if targeted to spiritual rulership in heavenly places and not against human beings.

"My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words." ( -- Psalms 119:139)
