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).
I stepped through a door. On the other side I heard a beautiful song. It was of such ethereal beauty that my heart contracted almost painfully. I wanted to find the source of the song so I started to search. The song became louder and louder. It began to penetrate my whole being. My spirit, my soul, my senses, even my body were filled with the frequency of the sound. I also smelt a beautiful fragrance of worship.
Eventually I came to a waterfall. The water before the waterfall was not deep so I waded through it and stood under the cascading water. It was a soft spray of water over me but the sound was overwhelming. As I stood there I saw a door opening through the water and into another realm. The water and the sound filled me, refreshing and energizing every part of my being. I had no fear and went through the door into the unknown. The sound was still there but now it had become very personal. I realized that this was my song, the song my DNA was creating. After going through the water I had a new fullness and a new richness.
I found myself in a hallway. I thought it would be dark but gemstones were shining and giving off an awesome and very beautiful light. The gemstones were blue, emerald green and turquoise. The frequency of the light resonated with me and created an awesome three dimensional harmony—it was as if I could see the sound. The harmony fine-tuned me. Anything in me that disturbed the harmony was polished out and replaced with the perfect sound. This made me so happy. Joy bubbled up and overflowed through me.
As I kept moving I found myself in a bigger room. It was like a living room but more formal. There was light coming from a source that I could not detect. It seemed the light was in the walls and atmosphere itself. It was alive, pure and holy. When I entered the light concentrated in me. As I stood there trying to grasp what was happening someone tapped me on the shoulder.
I turned around and was thrilled to see Purity in a form I could touch. She smiled, embraced me and spoke. “I am so glad you came. I have waited to meet you. You and I will walk together and I will introduce you to some of my friends.” Then I saw Prudence and Self-Control (Proverbs 8:12). I was eager to connect with them because I knew how desperately I needed their tutorage. They smiled when they saw me coming and embraced me as well.
The Lesson – 5th July 2017
I was a bit shy. I knew my thoughts and my speech were not always pure. Not to mention my decisions, which were not always made with prudence. They could read my thoughts and feelings. Wisdom came and stood before me, “My dear girl, look into my eyes and tell me what you see?” She held me very close, nearly an embrace, or as if we were dancing. I looked into her eyes. I could see a reflection of myself but wow, I had never seen myself that way before.
I wore a beautiful white princess dress. It was like the dresses described in old storybooks—the type worn when being presented to society or before a king or queen, a “coming out” dress for girls ready to step into maturity. I was satisfied, radiant, and extremely joyful, but the look on my face also expressed longing and desire for something more. Satisfied but hungry—it was a strange combination.
As I kept looking I felt something changing in my innermost being. Suddenly I felt the loving arms of my Father. Wisdom stepped back and my heavenly Papa embraced me. He whispered in my ear, “Do I not always tell you that you are My Tirzah (Song of Songs 6:4), My beloved, My Hephzibah (Isaiah 62:4)? Believe it. Embrace it. You can trust Me. I know who you really are and how you really look. I see you as beautiful, pure and fully in love with me.”
I became overwhelmed by the proximity of the Father. The song began. It was even more beautiful than before. The fragrance enveloped us. “What you are experiencing is Me and you together. The unique fragrance is your love and My love intertwined. No one else has this fragrance. It belongs to us. Also the sound—it is My song, intertwined with your song—who you are in Me. You are already emanating this sound. As you embrace this it is also how the spiritual world sees you. But the veil is being taken away. You are in your “coming out” season—mature, young and fresh, but not marred by your past, hindered by your hurts, or held back by your experiences! It is a new season and I am your Bridegroom Lover”
As the Father said this He changed into my Lover. I laid my head on His chest. Suddenly I could see His sound and my sound emanating together. It was visible sound DNA. The different strands had shiny colors. His DNA was the gold strand weaving through all and giving it an etheric shine. We danced. The sound DNA was in the middle of us and the sound and the fragrance surrounded us. The longer I danced with Him the more I knew I was the woman I saw in the eyes of Wisdom. He smiled and said, “Yes, when you spend time with Me like this you become aware of how I see you and who you really are with Me, in Me and through Me.”
Then suddenly we stood on the top of a high mountain. A steep ridge fell away below us. He held me close to Himself. The wind was blowing and it was getting cold but I could hide in the strength of His arms. He whispered to me softly but very clear, “Every time you dance with Me in intimacy and you feel the release of the fragrance and the sound it will be a sign that I am calling you to Myself. Then we will fly together and I will show you things to come. You will carry that frequency. If you stay close to Me you will release particles of My glory wherever you go. People will start to see, hear and smell My glory. You will be a carrier of My glory.”
As I stood there all the insecurity in my life started to manifest. I was full of impurity and unworthy of such a high call. I tore myself away from Him, forgetting that I was standing on the peak of a mountain. I fell off the ledge. It was a terrible sensation. I screamed out, “Abba!!!,” but kept falling. Suddenly I felt eagle wings next to me. “Turn around and hold onto Me.” I was falling head first so I had to make a conscious decision to turn myself upright. It took me a while but I no longer felt horrified because the eagle was beside me. After I turned (repented) He came beneath me and I landed safely on His wings.
My breath was ragged and my heart was racing, but I understood the lesson clearly. This was now the season of maturity. Every step had a consequence. I could no longer allow past emotions of fear and failure to dominate. They would cause me to move away from the Lord and start to fall. But even if I did fall I could make a conscious decision to turn myself upright and stand strong. He would always catch me and we would always fly further.
