The Father within Me is eternal love.
The Seven Spirits of God
The three principal spirits of God.
In addition to the three principal Spirits there are
- LOVE. It is His first and foremost spirit. God‘s love creates through the aim of giving happyness the "light" within it and thus divine
- WISDOM. Finally Love and wisdom whish to realize their creational thoughts and thus awaken the effective
- WILLPOWER and might, called the Holy Spirit. It is present throughout infinity.
Revealed and explained by the Lord.
- ORDER - it gives the creation purpose and form,
- EARNEST - for existence, growth and reproduction,
- PATIENCE - it guarantees peaceful maturation of created beings
- MERCY - which helps even beings opposed to God and almost lost and eventually leads them into perfection.
[Household of God, HHG.2, 252]
the Father rose and said to Enoch: "To you, My Enoch, it shall be given
to learn and grasp the great secret of My Kingdom, but to none other
"And so seal these words within you which I shall now
say to you; for only you and no one else shall grasp their meaning
until the great Time of times, - but the world shall be smitten with
blindness to the end.
"And so hear: Love and Life are one thing
- and yet two; Love being the cause and Life the effect. Thus also
Light and Wisdom are one and yet again two: Light the cause and Wisdom
"From Love and Life also a third issues, and this is
Will, which is the mighty spirit. And from Light and Wisdom also a
third goes forth, and this is Order, which forms all things and
determines their final purpose.
"And out of Love and Life and
out of Light and Wisdom goes forth the spirit of all holiness, and this
is the Word from the mouth of God.
"This Word is itself essence and is the primordial substance from which all things were originally created.
looking at the essence of Love and of Life and the Will issuing from
the two, and at the essence of Light and Wisdom and the Order going
forth from both and, finally, at the holiness going forth from all the
former or the essence of the eternal Word out of God‘s mouth, you have
the Seven Spirits which all issue tom Love, and Love itself is the
first spirit going forth from itself, the other six going forth
simultaneously from Love, yet being one with it from eternity.
Love and Life can become separated and then Love is like a lump of ice
without warmth; but Life on its own becomes a free fire which finds a
bearable release in destruction.
"Thus also Light and Wisdom can
be separated; the Light is then as it were dead in the destructive
fire, and Wisdom becomes night, deceit, error and lie.
"So also the Word going forth from Love and Life and from Light and Wisdom can be separated essentially.
this is possible, the entire creation shows you where you may observe
all the aforementioned divisions; they have all been effected by Me and
I am their First Cause, and the ultimate purpose of it all is: The
life-test or the incessant exercising and strengthening for eternal
"And behold, despite all these divisions I am nevertheless undivided in the full possession of all My Spirits!
it will also be in the great Time of times when the eternal Word as the
essential First Cause of all things will Itself assume flesh in which
will dwell My essence in all its fullness.
"My world will kill
the flesh; but God, eternal Love, in His fullness indwelling the flesh,
will soon re-animate the flesh and then the fullness of God will live
forever in His incarnated Word as a Man before His created beings who
will see Him and speak to Him as to a true Brother.
"Only this God-Man will bring to all of you true eternal life; until then you will only live a life separated from My love.
"Behold, this is the meaning of My words; do grasp it, but no one else besides you, and the world - not till the end! Amen."
Raphael on the same subject.
Instructed by the Lord Jesus, archangel Raphael gives Lazarus an account of the seven spirits in God.
"The great primordial spirits are really the thoughts in God and the ideas going forth from them.
mystical number seven is to be understood as that which is completely
and primordially divine and godlike in every thought going forth from
God and in every idea conceived and as if set out of Him.
The First Spirit in God is Love. This is found in all created things: for without it nothing would have been created.
Second Spirit is Wisdom, as the light going forth from love. This, too,
you can see in the form of every being; for, to the more light a being
responds, the more developed, definite and beautiful will also be its
The Third Spirit, going forth from love and wisdom, is the
effective Will of God through which the envisaged beings become a
reality, so that they can really be and exist. Otherwise all the
thoughts and ideas of God would be the same as your empty thoughts and
ideas, which are never put into action.
The Fourth Spirit,
issuing in turn from the three, is called Order. Without this order no
being could have a permanent and lasting form and, therefore, never a
definite purpose. For if you harnessed an ox to a plough and it changed
its form and shape, say, into a fish or a bird, would you ever achieve
a purpose with it? Or suppose you wanted to eat a fruit and it turned
into a stone before your mouth, - what good would the fruit be to you?
Or you walked somewhere on a firm road, and the road turned into water
under your feet, - could even the firmest road be of any use to you? -
Look, all this - and inexpressibly more - is prevented through divine
order, as the Fourth Spirit in God.
The Fifth Spirit in God is
called Divine Earnest, without which nothing would have any permanence,
because this is equal to the eternal truth in God and gives all beings
true stability, reproductive power, growth and eventual perfection.
Without such a Spirit in God all beings would still be in a very bad
way. They would resemble mirages, which appear to be real while they
are visible; but only too soon do the conditions for their presence
change because there is no earnest in them, and the beautiful and
miraculous images fade into nothingness. They seem to be well arranged
but, since there is no earnest in their foundation, they are nothing
but empty and very transient apparitions which cannot possibly last.
See, there we have already the five great primordial Spirits in God; let us now turn to the last two, and so listen to me.
supreme love, supreme wisdom, the almighty will, the most perfect order
and the firmest, unchangeable earnest are present, there must obviously
be also supreme and eternally incomparable Patience. For without this
everything would be precipitated and, finally, end in the inextricable
chaos of the ancient sages.
When an architect builds a house he
must, besides all his qualifications, have patience, too; for if he
lacks this believe me - he will never succeed in building that house.
tell you: If God did not possess this Spirit, no sun would have been
shining to an earth in infinite space for eons and in the world of
spirits it would look most peculiar, - quite unreal. Patience is the
mother of God‘s eternal, unchangeable mercy. And were it not for this
sixth Spirit in God, where and what would all beings be before Almighty
If we do wrong in some way and thereby obviously expose
ourselves to the devastating curse of divine love, wisdom and divine
will, followed - evidently because of the preceding order - by His
earnest, we are confronted with divine patience which must - and does -
gradually restore the balance once more; for without this all ever so
perfect beings would be subjected to the eternal judgment of doom.
patience, together with the preceding five Spirits in God, would,
indeed, create on the heavenly bodies one or even counthless human
beings and also maintain them; but in that case an individual, or
untold numbers of human beings, would live on for eons in the heavy
flesh, and there would never be a final liberation of the soul from the
shackles of matter. At the same time animals and plants, as well as
men, would continue to multiply and in the end would populate the
limited space on a globe so densely that no one would be able to make
way for another. This is only assuming that a heavenly body under the
control of infinite, divine patience, ever did mature to a state in
which it could carry and keep plants, animals and human beings. Indeed,
even the creation of a material world would be an infinitely slow
process if it depended solely on the six already mentioned Spirits, and
it would be very doubtful if a world would ever materializf,.
patience, as said before, is the mother of divine mercy and, thus, the
Seventh Spirit in God is that very Mercy which we may also call
meekness. This accomplishes everything. It directs all the preceding
Spirits and within the proper time brings about the maturing of a world
with all its creatures. It allocates a certain life-span to everything,
and the matured spirits can look forward to an easy and complete
deliverance and will be able to enter into their eternal freedom and
the fullest independence.
It is this seventh Spirit in God that
made God Himself take on the human flesh, thereby to deliver, in the
shortest possible time, all the imprisoned spirits from the hard bonds
imposed by the necessary judgment of matter. This is why His act of
salvation - the new creation of the heavens and worlds - can be called
God‘s greatest act because therein all the Seven Spirits of God play an
equal part, which prior to it had not quite been the case nor could it
have been due to the Spirit of Order in God. Formerly this Seventh
Spirit in God, now introduced to you, cooperated with the other Spirits
only to the extent that thereby all the thoughts and ideas of God
became realities; but from now on it works more powerfully, and the
result is complete salvation.
These are the Seven Spirits in God
that you could not comprehend, and all that was created out of the
Seven Spirits in God corresponds in each and everything to these Seven
Spirits and contains them within. And the forever continuing creation
and equally continuing act of creating is what the ancient sages of
this earth used to call "the Wars of Jehovah".
The fights - or wars - of the Spirits
"Just as the Seven Spirits, or special attributes, in God are
continually in conflict because one always provokes the other to
activity, thus you can easily observe the same conflict more or less in
all God‘s creatures.
Love by itself is blind, and it always
strives to draw everything to itself. But in this striving it ignites,
and now there is light within it and, therefore, understanding and
Can you now see how the light fights against the
solitary effort of pure love and calls it to order and to its senses?
From this conflict - or war - there arises at the same time the will,
as the active arm of love and its light, putting into practice what the
light has wisely arranged.
At the same time, through love‘s
understanding thanks to its light and through the combined power of the
two, order is called forth and, henceforth, fights against any disorder
through the light and the will of love. And there you have again a
forever continuing War of Jehovah within Him and within all created
All this would be quite in order if one could only be
sure that what the four Spirits have brought about so nicely arranged
would thereby already have permanence. But the ever so magnificent
works of the first four Spirits still resemble the plays of children,
who with great pleasure and joy build something very efficiently, yet
soon after no longer enjoy their work and destroy it more eagerly than
they originally created it. And truly, friend, there it would still
look very bad regarding the permanency of all created things.
prevent this from happening, there arises out of the four Spirits -
actually because it liked the great perfection of the works - the
earnest, as a Fifth Spirit in God and His created beings, and this
Spirit then fights against the destruction and annihilation of the once
created works, much as a sensible and serious man who has, for
instance, built himself a house and laid out a vineyard will do
everything to maintain and make use of the house and the vineyard and
not destroy them soon after, as I have shown you in the example of the
contrived playthings of children. And look, this is - as said before -
again a War of Jehovah.
However, as time goes by, the erected
house shows faults and the vineyard still does not yield the expected
harvest. Then the builder regrets having taken so much trouble and
spent so much effort due to his earnest. Therefore, he would like to
destroy the whole project and replace it with something quite new and
different; but then the Sixth Spirit which - as already shown - is
called patience, stands up to such earnest and, look, this then
preserves house and vineyard. And that is again another War of Jehovah.
patience by itself, or also combined with the preceding spirits, would
hardly undertake any improvements to either house or vineyard and would
let things slide along. But there comes the Seventh Spirit, namely,
mercy which encompasses gentleness, concern, industry, active love and
generosity and, look, now the man repairs his house so well that it no
longer shows any faults worth mentioning, and he cultivates and manures
the vineyard so that it soon yields a good harvest. And this is once
more a conflict or a War of Jehovah in man as well as in God and in
Thus, the true, perfect life in God, in the angel and in
man is a continuous conflict of the Seven Spirits described to you. Now
this conflict is in God and the angel not such as if one or the other
of the Seven Spirits would try to suppress and inactivate the other
spirits, but the conflict is forever aimed at one spirit supporting the
other with all its might so that each spirit is then fully contained in
the other. Thus, love is within the other six spirits and light or
wisdom is within love and the other five spirits and so forth, so that
in each individual spirit all the others are present, forever
supporting each other in complete harmony."
continues: "In man it should also be the same but, unfortunately, is
not. This ability has been given every human being, without ever being
fully developed and practised. Only few people activate the seven
spirits within them to a full and equal activity thereby becoming truly
like God and us angels of God; but - as I said - many have turned away
from it and do not bother much and, therefore, do not recognize the
true secret of life within them at all. Such blind and half-dead people
are then unable to recognize the underlying purpose of life because
they let themselves be guided and dominated only by one or the other of
the seven spirits.
Thus, one lives purely out of the spirit of
love and completely ignores the other spirits. Such a man is then
nothing else but a voracious beast of prey that is never satisfied.
People like that are always full of self-love, full of envy and greed
and hard of heart toward all their fellowmen. -
possess an enlightened love, are therefore rather wise and able to
teach their fellowmen good things; but they have a weak will and are
unable to really accomplish something.
Then there are others in
whom the spirits of love, wisdom and will are quite active; but with
the spirit of order and the proper earnest it does not look too good.
This kind of people will be able to talk intelligently, sometimes even
rather wisely, and here and there they may also be able to accomplish
something; but the person who is truly wise through all the seven
spirits will soon gather from their words, talk and acts that these
lack order and coherence.
And there are also people who possess
love, light, will and order, but they lack the spirit of earnest. As a
result they are timid and faint-hearted and seldom able to make their
works fully effective.
Others again are also full of earnest and
courage, but do not have much patience. Such people usually act too
rashly and often spoil with their impatient zeal more than they do
good. Yes, friend, without proper patience there is no achievement; for
he who lacks patience pronounces his own death sentence. Man has to
wait until the grape is completely ripe if he wants to reap a good
harvest. If he does not want to wait, he has but himself to blame if
instead of a delicious wine he has produced only a sour, undrinkable
Thus, patience is a necessary spirit in everything:
Firstly, in controlling and giving direction to the spirit 1 called
earnest that often is inclined to overstep its boundaries, because it
may, combined with love, wisdom and will, degenerate into extreme pride
which, as you know, tends to become unlimited in a person; and
secondly, because patience is above all, as 1 have already explained to
you, the mother of the spirit of mercy, and it is this latter spirit
that affects all the preceding ones by giving them the divine-spiritual
perfection and also helps the human soul to attain to the full and true
rebirth in the spirit.
This is the reason why the Lord Himself
urged all of you to love God and your neighbour, adding: ‘Be merciful,
as also your Father in Heaven is merciful, and be meek and humble, as
also 1 am meek and humble with all My heart!‘
Thus, the Lord
bade you men develop above all the Seventh Spirit because in this last
spirit all the preceding ones are contained and being developed.
Therefore, he whp,zealously develops and strengthens this last spirit
develops and strengthens also the preceding ones and has taken the
shortest and surest road to perfection. However, he who begins his
development with one or several of the preceding spirits will attain to
the full perfection of life only with great effort, or not at all,
because these earlier spirits do not contain the Seventh Spirit,
whereas the latter does contain all the ones preceding it.
behold, therein consists continuously the fall of the angels or the
thoughts and ideas out of God - which we may call the forces constantly
flowing from God -, so long as they in their entirety in man‘s nature
have failed to develop the Seventh Spirit within them to true and
supreme perfection. For all the preceding spirits have been partly
given, more or less freely, to almost all created beings, whereas the
Seventh Spirit must be won by man himself with much diligence and zeal.
as only by acquiring this spirit do all the preceding six gain their
life‘s true significance and true purpose, the whole man does only
through it win the fullest freedom and independence of life. - And now
I ask you whether you have understood all this."
