Most people don’t read the word of God beyond their dogma so when someone says something from the word of God they’ve not heard via their dogma, they dismiss it right off. I remember this happening to me with my own dad when I was a kid. We were talking about the Lord’s coming and I mentioned the Lord would come like lightning from the east to the west. He told me I was wrong. We didn’t have computers then so I couldn’t remember the verse number to show him Matt 24:27. I felt terrible and it felt he was calling me a liar though I knew he didn’t mean that. But he just dismissed what I said.
Anyhow, where do you think he got the count of nine from? The nine count comes from these:
Revelation 1:4 (KJV)
John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
Revelation 4:5 (KJV)
And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and [there were] seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Now you understand the temple Menorah – seven lamp stand
Who are the seven Spirits of God?
Isaiah 11:2 (KJV)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 of the fear of the LORD;
- Spirit of the Lord (Whom we call the Holy Spirit)
- Spirit of Wisdom
- Spirit of Understanding
- Spirit of Counsel
- Spirit of Might
- Spirit of Knowledge
- Spirit of the Fear of the Lord
These seven and the Father and the Son sum to nine. Maybe this is why “Trinity” isn’t a word in the word of God. Besides, how can we number God, He is all and therefore One! We are made in His image and we’re made up of more than 35 trillions cells, yet we are one. Trillions of stars make one galaxy!
Proverbs says that the Spirit of Wisdom is a she and she has maidens, Pro 9:3. She’s the builder of the seven churches, Pro 9:1, and she sends her maidens out, the Church (the Bride!), to call throughout the cities the calling of the Lord! We may be the lampstand, but it’s the Spirit that’s the fire – the Anointing Oil!
