I do understand the need to use Gifts as a means to explain---I also understand not being able to come up with a word that fits Spirits or fixes spirit --put it into a box.
That said--considering the Trinity--spirit does seem to be a person, of sorts, as used here.
It is all just opinion and I hold no one to be correct or incorrect---we are "just sayin" !
Blessings

the holy spirit is not a single spirit person . its all the angels as a group working together ,and subservient to Jehovah and to the Christ .

Interesting. Using the seven spirits “before God” yields a slighlty different understanding than the common “seven spirits before His throne”.
At least.

Rev. 4:5

5 and out of the throne proceed do lightnings, and thunders, and voices; and seven lamps of fire are burning before the throne, which are the Seven Spirits of God,


MY snafu but when I read Revelation 4 , that is where I went.

Any significance stated by man is by guess and by gosh but God does seem to use some numbers exclusive to others.

7 is a important number. when you under stand 7 . 6 can also be understood.
and when you come to an understanding of 6 then you are close to understanding 666

Bob: My apology. I was looking at this:
