The Seven Eyes Of The Lamb: Introduction.

| Spiry Tee

"And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth."
(Rev 5:6 NASB+)

The Lamb of God that was slain is our dear Lord Jesus Christ. John saw, in prophetic symbolism, our Lord having seven eyes. Does it mean that Jesus Christ has literally seven eyes? No. It is prophetic language for the seven Spirits of God. Again seven Spirits is also a prophetic phrase with seven as a number of fullness. Jesus has all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. It pleased the Father that in Him all fullness should dwell (Colossians 1:19).

Prophets in the Old Testament foretold of the coming of the Savior who will be marked by the fullness of the Spirit upon Him. Zechariah was the first, “Look at the stone I have set in front of Joshua. That one stone has seven eyes. I am engraving an inscription on it,” declares the Lord of Armies. “I will remove this land’s sin in a single day." (Zechariah 3:9 GW).

Prophet John the Baptist also declares that on whom the fullness of the Spirit rests, He is the Messiah, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. "For he whom God has sent utters the words of God, for he gives the Spirit without measure." (John 3:34 ESV). So we know that only Jesus was given the greatest blessing of all, the fullness of the Godhead.

The seven Spirits of God represent the essence of the Divine. It is the fullness that makes God who is He.

Isaiah mentions the names of the seven Spirits of God in his revelation. "There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord." (Isaiah 11:1‭-‬2 ESV).

The seven eyes of the Lamb represent 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 and the Spirit of the fear of the Lord. If you examine them closely you will notice that you can not be full of these and not be in the class of God. This is what makes God, God.

The glorious news is that when it comes to the revelation of Jesus, it is not far removed from the revelation of His bride the church because who He is, is what we are called to become in Him. Before He died, Jesus was the only begotten of the Father but not anymore. After His resurrection He is now the first begotten because now are we also the sons of God by faith in Him.

The same rule applies to Him being the only one who had the Spirit without measure before His death and the resurrection.  Today as believers in Christ, we are complete in Him. "For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power." (Colossians 2:9‭-‬10 NKJV).

And as we know the dimensions of the love of Christ for us, we are filled with all the fullness of God. "That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." (Ephesians 3:17‭-‬19 NKJV). When you are filled with God, sickness, poverty, lack and death have no chance over you, for as He is so are you in this world.

Just like Jesus I am filled with all the fullness of God through the Holy Ghost.
