The Holy Spirit
John 15:26 - But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
As I sat to write on the internet and one brother in the Lord was inquiring about the Holy Spirit and I told him to be patient for I was writing a teaching on the same topic. But as I took a message for the day, the Lord asked me to not keep him waiting but to share (this is for you brother and all who desire to know).
(Let me see what I can share in this short message)
The Holy Spirit is like light by itself has no colour but all objects get colour due to it. When light passes though a transparent media, it shows its basic seven colours - rainbow. The Spirit of the Lord when set to purpose is seven although He is one - Isaiah 11:2.
The Spirit of the Lord
The Spirit of wisdom - skill
The Spirit of understanding - truth
The Spirit of counsel
The Spirit of might
The Spirit of Knowledge
The Spirit of the fear of the Lord
When we are baptized in Jesus Christ we all receive the Spirit of truth – understanding. Therefore we start to understand the scriptures. According to our calling more of the Spirit (in that area) is poured on us. It was only Jesus in whom the Holy Spirit in whole (in full and all seven) was manifested. We should thirst more of the Holy Spirit in all area. We are assured we will receive all seven (in different proportions according to our calling) so that we do not lack in any area in our work in the Lord.
So if you lack understanding of scriptures pray for the more of the Spirit of truth. If you lack counsel pray for the Spirit of counsel. If you need to work in healings ask for the Spirit of the fear of the Lord. If you want to prophecy pray for the Spirit of Knowledge. If you want to do miracles pray for the Spirit of might. If you lack in applying the Word in your life pray for the Spirit of skill.
Make sure you lack none of the Holy Spirit so that you are balanced in the Lord.
