What Are The Seven Spirits Of God?

Revelation 5:6 mentions the “seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” In this same verse these spirits are described as being the “seven eyes” of the “Lamb.” They are seven angelic beings who serve as the seven observers for Jesus Christ. In Revelation 1:4 we read that these seven angels have access to the very throne of God in heaven.

The function of these seven angels is described in II Chronicles 16:9: “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth.” This description is repeated in Zechariah 4:10, along with a reference to the “eyes of the Lord” being seven in number.

These seven angels have a specific and very important responsibility. They continually go throughout the entire earth to observe conditions and report them to Jesus Christ in heaven.
