Meeting the Seven Spirits of God – Tammy Uys
The prophet Isaiah reveals seven aspects of God's Spirit (Isaiah 11:2).
- The Spirit of the LORD.
- The Spirit of Wisdom.
- The Spirit of Understanding.
- The Spirit of Counsel.
- The Spirit of Might.
- The Spirit of Knowledge.
- The Spirit of the Fear of the LORD.
In the experiences that follow I meet with the Spirit of Counsel and the Spirit of Wisdom.
The Spirit of Counsel – 3rd of February 2017
I saw a door and was invited to go through it. After I came through the door I was greeted by the Spirit of Wisdom. She gave me a mantle to put on (Wisdom is often personified as a woman in the book of Proverbs). As soon as I put the mantle on my vision was enhanced. The surroundings were instantly more colourful, vibrant and alive. The Spirit of Wisdom took me by the hand and led me further in. I wanted to speak to her but she said, “Be quiet for now. I will explain things as you need to know them.” She knew who I wanted to meet so I relaxed and allowed myself to be led.
We were walking on a path which led into a countryside. It was a beautiful natural setting with no houses or dwellings. The way was rugged. I could feel many watching us as we walked. I could sense their anticipation. I started to ask myself where we were going. Without saying a word the Spirit of Wisdom spoke to my heart: “Relax. I know where we are going, who you want to meet, and even what will happen.” I made a conscious decision to relax. Immediately my vision became even brighter and clearer. The Spirit of Wisdom smiled at me. She knew what I was experiencing. We continued. The more I chose to trust and have faith, the clearer the path became.
Eventually we came to a big tree. There was a person waiting for us. He looked distinguished. I felt awed in his presence. He looked like a gentleman from an old film but his smile was incredible and welcoming. He invited me to join him. After greeting me he said, “It is so good of you to come and search for me. I have been waiting for you. I know that you need me in order to navigate the path that you are on. Mostly people only think about me. Few people actually pursue me—and even then it is mostly only because they are in an emergency. But you need me every day.” I started to speak. He listened in such an incredible and special way. I started to understand things even as I was asking. He expanded my mental ability just by me asking.
He smiled as I was thinking this and said, “Yes this is one of the side effects when you start walking with me. I am here to help you learn and grow. The more you ask the more I will show you. The more you hunger for truth the more you will know that which is true and real and also the directions you should take. Counsel is about pursuing the heart of the Father. As soon as you focus on His heart I come to you and advise you. I reveal His heart and the right way to go about things. I am a passive and an active tutor. When you meet my companion, the Spirit of Might, you will understand why. When you take my advice and action it immediately, you will see mighty exploits. At those times the Spirit of Might will be with you. But you will meet him at another time. There is a season and timing of the Lord to each of these encounters.”
The Spirit of Wisdom – 12th of February 2017
I met the Spirit of Wisdom a second time. She is very patient. She keeps in the background but the presence around her is very attractive. This causes those who are hungry to be drawn to her. This time I was drawn to her by the way she embraced me. Her big arms totally enveloped me. I just wanted to be close and melt into her embrace. It gave me a feeling of safety, rest and calm. All stressful emotions went. She held me until I was totally relaxed and almost giddy. It gave me a new sense of identity and belonging.
She spoke to me while I was in her embrace: “If you embrace wisdom you will know your heavenly DNA. The more you spend time with me, the more you will know the deep things of the Spirit, and I will reveal the mysteries of God. You will come to know the deep love the Father has for you and the rest of humankind. If you stay close and let me embrace you, unauthorized thoughts and emotions will go. You don’t need to perform to earn God’s love. You have heavenly DNA. When you are connected to me and rest in me, Holy Spirit stem cells immediately repair any damage. People often hide from me because they think when they meet me all fun will be gone. They couldn’t be more wrong. In me they will find true freedom. Freedom that leads to outrageous fun and true joy!”
The day after having this experience I read the following passage from the The Message Bible:
You’re blessed when you meet Lady Wisdom, when you make friends with Madame Insight. She’s worth far more than money in the bank; her friendship is better than a big salary. Her value exceeds all the trappings of wealth; nothing you could wish for holds a candle to her. With one hand she gives long life, with the other she confers recognition. Her manner is beautiful, her life wonderfully complete. She’s the very Tree of Life to those who embrace her. Hold her tight—and be blessed! (Proverbs 3:13-18).
