1 God’s Spirit of Sorrow Tears of Godly sorrow brings forth repentance after it has had enough time to complete the Holy Spirit’s work. The breaking and release is signaled by an outrushing of joy or laughter, The Spirit of God will use personal sorrow as a starting point and turn it into Godly sorrow. Personal sorrow is directed self-ward, but Godly sorrow other-ward. Godly intercession interacts with several anointings; sorrow, joy, warring anger, praise and worship, according to the moving of the Spirit.
2: The Spirit of Holiness: (Worship and Holy Fear) Though there are numerous listings of the Spirit of Holiness it is hard to account it strictly as an anointing. The closer we come to experiencing God face to face the more this power is revealed. No eye has seen nor hear has heard what God has prepared for those who love Him. But now it is revealed by the Holy Spirit.- – 1Corinthians 2:9
3: The Spirit of Compassion: For the Lord is Good and His Mercies endure forever! The Goodness of God is the source of all grace and blessing. The Father’s heart of forgiveness and compassion are revealed again and again throughout scripture and are at the center of all Jesus’ ministry. Mercy, compassion, forgiveness; healing; restoration; deliverance. The mercies of God directed to weak and fallible souls is the greatest wonder of the universe!
4: The Spirit of Praise and Rejoicing: (The Spirit of Joy ) The Holy Spirit turns mourning into dancing, heaviness into praise, weeping into rejoicing. There is an ultimate point in the cycle of the Holy Spirit’s travail when tears of sorrow turn into victory and darkness turns into the breaking dawn of hope.
5: The spirit of Zeal The Spirit of Judgment: Spirit of Burning (The Zeal of God is as a Consuming Fire) The study of the “Zeal of God” encompasses the entire question of God’s anger, wrath and judgment and those upon whom it is directed. The anointing of righteous anger.
6: The Anointing of Power dunamis, doo’-nam-is; from G1410; force (lit. or fig.); spec. miraculous power (usually by impl. a miracle itself):–ability, abundance, meaning, might (-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle (-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work.
7: The Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding: (The Spirit of Truth) To truly discern it is to know the mind and heart of God. To know the full reality. To have this heart within you, is a guiding light of wisdom and knowledge that at once, knows the truth. In this anointing we know that God is our Father; that the Bible is his divine voice speaking the word of truth; often that human voices written or spoken, are speaking from personal vanity or from divine revelation.
