‘The Seven Spirits of God’; The Holy Spirit being shown in an emblemic way.

 


22ndAugust 2020

4  John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood— Revelation 1:4-5

 

According to Bickersteth; The seven Spirits here is the Holy Spirit and He is being referred to in an emblemic way (page 120).  Revelations is a great book with great themes.  I will research this for myself one day when I have time.
