    • LETTERS 7 Spirits All Things Salt By: Elder Don Ellis
    • SEVEN SPIRITSRev 4:5 mentions there were seven lamps of fireburning before the throne, which are the sevenSpirits of God. In 5:6, there is a lamb as it hadbeen slain having seven horns and seven eyeswhich are the seven Spirits of God sent forth intoall the earth. These Spirits, lamps, horns, andseven eyes are one and equal, denoting poweror horns, seven eyes are denoting wisdom orabilities to see the end from the beginning, andpower to bring it about. These Spirits of theLamb go forth into all the earth.It seems that if these are for the same purpose,to glorify God and the lamb, they all work for thesame purpose to Gods kingdom of Heavenpeople or people of the kingdom. This lamb haspower (horns) and eyes (wisdom) to reveal hisglory and truth in a complete or perfect way(lamps).In the scriptures, there are seven places withnames such as the Spirit of Adoption (Rom8:15). In the kingdom, we need this great.blessing to be able to serve and feel that thisgreat heavenly power is our Father and alsopower to bring us to the understanding howmuch we need Him. This experience enables usto be a son of the kingdom. The Israelitesreceived a form of adoption in Rom 9:4. As they. 1
    • lost their fellowship with God through unbelief,so also can we.The Spirit of Grace (Heb 10:29) brings about thetruth of grace. Many of Gods people believe thebible teaches grace but they are not able to trustin it. It takes the Spirit of Grace in its power(horns) and wisdom (eyes) for us to know thegrace in truth (Col 1:6). It is like a lamp or brightlight shining from the throne for us to seeourselves in great need of grace and then for usto grasp fully that we are receivers of grace in avery special way. The truth becomes plain as towhy we received it.The Spirit of Truth (In 14:17) or Holy Ghost isaccording to promise on the heirs of this graceand is the ruling power in the New CovenantKingdom and is administered by the Lamb thatwas slain, having seven horns and seven eyes.It is able to open our understanding ofRevelations and also is able to withstand theSpirit of Error (1Jn 4:6). The Spirit of Error rulesin the kingdoms of this world, or anti-Christ, butthe Spirit of Truth is able to rule in the kingdomof God and in our lives.The Spirit of Glory (1 Pet 4: 14) is very great inpower and understanding, bringing great joy intime of reproach and called a fiery trial, yet whenthe lamp of understanding shines on us, thisSpirit of Glory praises God and on others they 2
    • speak evil of it. Ch 5:4 brings out the truth. TheChief Shepherd has appeared and given us acrown of Glory that fades not away. Even sinfulenemies can see this in us (lamps).The Spirit of Prophecy (Rev 19:10) enables us ina time of desolation and lack of Spirit to get a joyof realizing what our God is going to bring about.Jacobs great love for Rachel made all thoseyears seem as a short time. Our greattestimony of Jesus in dark times is to believethat He will come and deliver.The Spirit of Judgement (1Sa 4:4) is precious to us to enable us to fear God and this revelation He will bring about his righteous judgements (In 16: 11). The Holy Ghost gives us the Spirit ofJudgement of how to pass judgement or refrainfrom judgement. Michael, the Archangel, durstnot bring a railing accusation against Satan, butsaid the Lord rebuke thee. Yet there are timeswhen we are to judge with a righteousjudgement. We would not be able to do thisright except the one with seven eyes and alsoseven horns or power. 3
    • ALL THINGS Mathew 17:20 and Mathew 21:21-22 I would answer that it means all things that Hehas promised and are included in the suremercies of David. Yet, they are limited to usbelieving that we receive them. At this time, myexperience with prayer is that God is causing afast. As one writer explains, God says, "I willreturn to my place and there they will seek meand shall find me." We know that Jesusreturned to heaven victorious and sat down atthe right hand of God and great power and glorywas given Him, yet we dont feel His power oreven believe in this power. We say we know Heis able but will He perform? That is unbelief.Yet, I think we are waking up to notice this. Wego to our meeting and an Elder will pray a longelaborate prayer seemingly in a great Spirit.Then the preacher will preach with great libertyand emotion and the congregation will not bemuch moved to be in like Spirit. We wont beaffected much after the meeting is over. As wesee and feel this, doubt and unbelief will set inand it will seem that it is Gods fault that Hepromised but didnt deliver like He said. Weshould be praying fervently about this situation,rather than asking God to do something for us.Jesus promised that if we ask God something(Luke 11: 12) and we are hungering and thirstingfor His answer, He will give us His Spirit. Now 4
    • this Spirit will give us what we need. It is theSpirit of Truth and will guide us into all truth. Weprobably will receive things different from whatwe thought we needed.We have a problem in our church and we all metto pray for this individual. We were to take turnsas we felt impressed. Immediately one Elder,who I love very dearlY,warned us.aU that wemight not get the results we wanted, that it mighttake time. How did he know it might not beanswered? The bible says that when you pray,believe that you will receive it. Now say that that(believing) is our starting feeling and our petitionfails. What then? If you believed according toGods promise and didnt have it answered, ournext prayer to God believing is to ask the reasonwhy. As God is truth and in Him is light or truth,we should ask Him, IIWhat is it that shuts out ourfellowship?" In the 58th chapter of Isaiah, thesepeople are fasting and are complaining that Godis not honoring their sufferings in trying to pleaseHim. They think they are fasting but it is Godthat is causing the fast to try to change them (3rdverse). They should not try to hide from theirown flesh, do the things that please God (verse10), when they realize their wrongs, then theirlight shines out of darkness and they begin toprosper in Spirit and in the end of thisexperience, we can see plainly that our prayerswere answered. If you believe the scriptures, all 5
    • things you ask in Christs name are because ofHim and to give Him glory, it will come to pass inGods way. This is the meaning of the scripture.·"When you ask anything in my name, believethat you receive it." In Mat 21, about the barrenfig tree, Christ is showing his power to blast orkill because He didnt want anybody to ever eatof it ever again, and told His disciples if they hadfaith, they could do the same. It is a parable ofsomething in our lives that would cause othersto imitate, retaliate, offend, or cause suffering. Itcould be an addiction that causes others tosuffer or an idol we follow or worship that youwished others wouldnt be burdened with it. Youwould see that your way is not a good one foryour brethren to follow, yet your desire for it is sostrong and cant find it within yourself to quit.With your faith in Christ, you command it to die.This faith is found in 1st In 5:4. This is the faiththat is born in us and is powerful enough toovercome the world that is in us. What ourbrethren would eat off of us would be love, joy,fellowship, good counsel, a readiness for us tohelp. This is one of the "all things". 6
    • SALT The subject is salt and I dont have any desire tocontradict anybody, just some things I havestudied on the subject and meaning of salt. Idont think it has different meaning but acontinual thought through the bible (Lev 2 to Col4:6). In Lev 2:3, it is talking of a meat or foodoffering made with fire. There is to be noleaven, fine or white flour, not whole wheat,mingled with olive oil. It can be baked in a panwith oil. It can be fried with oil put on it. Sixthverse: you burn it on the altar, an offering madewith fire as a sweet savor. Verse 11 states thatyou cannot put honey on this offering becausesalt is what makes it sweet. Verse 13 states thatevery oblation shall be seasoned with salt. It is.called the salt covenant and with all thy offeringsthou shall offer salt. This salt covenant shallhold all through the bible. Some times literallyand then spiritually. Incidentally, we are alsotalking about shew bread and communion breadtoday. Num 18:19 also brings this out. Thesescriptures are a type and shadow of somethingto come in our New Testament lives.11 Kings 2:20 brings this great change indispensations as the difference between Elijahand Elisha. I look forward as well as you forthings to change in the church in a new,powerful way. Here comes Elisha with a double 7
    • portion of Elijahs spirit to a city with a pleasantsituation, but the water is no good, not fit todrink, and the ground is barren. Sounds likechurches not bringing forth not much fruit andalso thirsting. Do you make the water sweet ortasty? Elisha put salt in it. "Thus saith the Lord Ihave healed these waters and there shall not befrom thence any more death or barren land."Now this is opposite to nature but it is Godscovenant that salt is His way.Job 6:6: The answer to the questions in verse 5is "no," so can anything unsavory be eatenwithout salt? The answer is no. In Ezek 47:11,salt here is a judgment even as Lots wife is ajudgment. This water is typical of a great newday according to Gods grace, but where the saltis a great judgment. In Mk 10:43-50, picture theNew Covenant where the law is written in theheart and mind and is for the purpose of bringingus down to believe in our own depravity and isdone by condemnation or "fire" and brings abouta condition in ourselves that we are very corruptand sinful; also helpless and in the need ofGods grace. This is to be "salted by fire".When Christ, our Saviour, is revealed to us, weoffer our sacrifice of praise and thanks giving outof an humble spirit. This is well pleasing to Godbecause it is offered from an humble spirit. AsIsaiah wrote, "To this man will I look who has abroken spirit and a contrite heart and tremblest 8
    • at my word." This Spirit in our selves is salt. Ifwe use this in our speech, we can speak withgracious words seasoned with salt. Now if welose this spirit and become vain, we tread underfoot the Son of God and have done despite untothe Spirit of Grace. We then come underjudgment; God puts us back under His law andour great blessing of being changed turns intopunishment. We become the salt places and webecome like Lots wife, a pillar of salt as in Lk17:32. She looked back, longing for what sheleft. "Whosoever shall seek to save his life shalllose it."Mk 9: Salt is good but if we lose our saltinesswhere with will we season our prayers andsacrifices to God. 9
