The Spirit of Knowledge and the Local Church

The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.”
Isaiah 11:2


“From the throne came flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and before the throne were burning seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God
Revelation 4:5

Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man…”
Revelation 1:13

“The lampstand, representative of the seven-fold Spirit of God, upon and through Jesus Christ, is God’s provision within the local church and for every place His people meet. It’s going to take a plurality of ministrations in the local church to bring forth the new wine skin.  The thing that God is bringing is a spiritual union of relationship between each of us and Him. In that relationship with Him we become one with one another, and if we change that order we are in error.

“that they also may be one in Us”
John 17:21

There is an unfolding of God that comes through relationship, not by intellectual knowledge. The true knowledge of God will always produce the character of God and there is a continual unfolding of the depth, the wisdom and the wonder of God that is imparted to us through the Spirit of knowledge, not knowledge itself. The heart is the lens through which we see God, and it’s the condition of my heart, the depth of the faith that is moving in me that determines my ability to touch the wonder of God Himself. Faith is the faculty through which we explore the nature, the character and the wonder of God”

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart…”
Matthew 11:29
