The Book of Revelation ~ The Pattern of Seven ~ Length: 42:02




While there are many good messages that can be derived from the Letters to the Seven Churches, there is still a greater depth and connection. Symbolism is very strong in The Book of Revelation. This week we will see that the “Seven Stars, Lampstands, Spirits, churches and seals” are all related and connected. We see the seven Spirits mentioned. In the Greek, the word seven, means just that, seven. Also, Spirits, in the Greek is defined as The Holy Spirit. What is up with that?! There is only one Holy Spirit! “...the number seven is fixed on as representing totality.” So, the phrase, “Seven Spirits” refers to the totality of The Holy Spirit! Commentary continues: “These seven churches represent the universal Church of all times and places. ... Seven is the covenant number, the sign of God's covenant relation to mankind, and especially to the Church. “Seven is a combination of three, the divine number (thus the Trinity: the thrice Holy, Isaiah 6:3 ; the blessing, Numbers 6:24-26 ), and four the number of the organized world in its extension (thus the four elements, the four seasons, the four winds, the four corners or quarters of the earth...” “Melted, refined, and purified as gold” Why gold? Is the color gold significant? In a word, YES! SILVER: is the color of Redemption, BRONZE: is the color of Humanity, and GOLD: is the color of Divine. Do you see the significance of silver and bronze? In those colors is the number 3 and the number 4 by which, we just discussed as making the number seven! When we are melted, refined and purified as gold, God is making us divine! In Chapter 5 of Revelation He takes the scroll from the Father. Revelation 5:7 reads, “Then he came and took the scroll from the right hand of the one who was seated on the throne...” Before He can open even the first seal, He must have all seven original witnesses, or original signet ring owners present, by which the scroll was sealed as we observed earlier in Jewish custom. They must come directly, or by the descendants of, the seven churches who helped seal it!! However, in this particular case, it must be the original seven witnesses; the pastors of the seven churches which, are the seven stars in His right-hand!!! We have already proven this to be true in study! We hope you find this study most instructive. Get your sharp pencil, paper and Bible out! Then click Play!
