When John wrote the book of Revelations, he received from the Lord's angel a vision of seven stars, seven golden candlesticks, and seven spirits going out from the throne of God throughout the world. It is significant that Jesus sent only seven letters to seven different churches. Certainly there were many more than seven churches established both throughout Asia Minor and throughout the rest of the evangelized world at that time. So why did he pick out seven distinctly different churches. Why not 10 or 20 churches?
The answer is found in the fact that when Jesus took command as head of the Church (the main Branch, consisting of Christ and His body in the earth), He released His anointing for the Church to be divided into seven primary divisions. Within these seven divisions of the church (or seven major Church doctrines) there would be an anointing to specifically address the level they would be willing to go in Christ. Those who refused to go any further with the Lord would remain in whichever church had the level of anointing for that particular kind of walk with Him.
THIS IS THE REASON WHY NO MAJOR DENOMINATION HAS CHANGED THEIR DOCTRINE SINCE INCEPTION. If believers become more enlightened, or more zealous to follow the Lord, and wish to move into a higher level of the anointing, they find it necessary to move from their former to a different church. Paul taught that this "division" helps to create no "schism" in the body of Christ.
Those who go to their church receive a letter (message from God) sent by Jesus designed to bless them right where they are with Him. It would make no sense for Him to give a message to one congregation that they could not receive, while sending the message they would receive to another congregation who also would not receive it. In other words, the message preached to the Lutheran congregation is not suited for the Word of Faith congregation and visa versa. Therefore, the Father God knowing that there would be diversity in the different primary ways people would be willing to receive from and walk with Him, the Lord Jesus was given seven spirits, so that as His eyes went out over the earth, these seven distinct spirits, with seven distinct anointings would serve to take care of the diversity within His Church, the body of Christ (as a whole, but in seven division to accommodate this diversity of their walk with Him.
Revelations 5:6 " And I saw, and behold, in the midst of the throne, and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, was a Lamb standing, as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, having been sent out into all the earth."
In Apostle John's Revelation, the angel arrived with seven letters addressed to the seven churches of Asia Minor. In those letters Jesus has a few things praiseworthy, alone with several seriously chastening remarks, even threats to cut of a flow of His anointing to them if they did not make some corrections. Only one church did not receive any chastisement, only praise. It was the church at Philadelphia.
In this teaching Dr. Don G. Pickney does an analysis of the Philadelphia church. He also makes a comparison of the prominent doctrines of the Word of Faith Church with the beliefs in Philadelphia that received praise from the Lord.
This series of teachings is designed to show why the Word of Faith has been assigned by the Lord Jesus, and given the anointing from Him to herald an event in scripture, called The Day of Jehovah Tsaba (Lord of hosts), an event in which the glory of God would come upon the Church, as the glory of this world would be given to them. Most of the Word of Faith are heralding this event as a "global wealth conversion" to the Church. Simultaneously they are preaching that this event will serve to finance a missions and evangelism thrust that will bring in the greatest harvest of souls into Christ's kingdom, covering the earth "as the waters cover the sea."
Because the other six spirits (six main division of the ecclesia) have not received this information in their letter (message) from the Lord, they think the Word of Faith (Philadelphia Church) message is some kind of heresy. The message, however, is found for an end-time event throughout the entire Bible and prophetic scripture is abundant revealing this amazing event at the end of this age.
This teaching is to help those in the Word of Faith to take heart and courage to continue with God's plan although they stand alone in their mission among the other major protestant churches.
