I Your bredren in the livity bid you well, peace, and prosperity to all the lions of Jah who commented on this subject, and abroad. May the blessings of Selassie I be with you continualy.
First and foremost, I would like to reason on the issue of what a spirit is. I as a follower of Selassie I do not believe in spookism. I am not looking for a ghost God, especially after seeing Jah's face sit upon his throne in Ethiopia. I man sight no isms or schisms.
That being said, I see a spirit as an angel, revealed as a man. InI as men all come in certain spirits. Some come in the spirit of love, kindness, anger, hate, jealousy, longsuffering, etc......
Now when Revelations say "The seven spirits of God", basicaly refers to 7 angels that Jah will send out into the earth in the form of men.
So basicaly the 7 spirits are 7 angels that Jah will release on earth.
Why do I sight this? Well the seven spirits are mentioned quite often in revelations, but only once do they describe in any detail what they do. This detialed reference is in Revelation 1:4 mentions that the seven spirits are before God's throne. These are the 7 angels to come to the earth. We also know that God stated that his angels are before the throne continously worshiping him. So to see that they are before the throne would indicate an angels.
This is why I say that InI must read the old Testament, before InI can overstand the new.
Now to confirm this, all we need to do, is turn to Isiah 11:2 which says, “The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him, the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.”
Each Angel has a name and a destiny of his spirit to expand on earth. These are the names of the angels and the spirit of each angel as according to Isaih.
(1) Spirit of the LORD
(2) Spirit of wisdom
(3) Spirit of understanding
4) Spirit of counsel
(5) Spirit of power
(6) Spirit of knowledge
(7) Spirit of the fear of the Lord
In I reasoning, I would sight this as the possible connection of the 7 spirits of Jah.
Keep in mind each spirit will come in the form of a man, but will be an angel sent from Jah. These spirits will wake up the portion of Israel that is asleep.
Once Israel is awake.....Jah likens Israel unto an YOUNG ANGRY LION.....and will tear Babylon into pieces and assunder.
Notice Jah said YOUNG angry lion. It will be the youth that destroy Babylon once they awaken. If InI notice the war scrolls, only young men in their 20's fought in Israel's battles. Jah was very specific about exacts when Israel went to war.
Jah Rastafari bless the I them
