Seven Spiritual Foundational markers:
Spirit of The Lord (The Adonai)
This Spirit maintains doing for others without looking for anything in return. A Divine name, translated "Lord," and signifying, from its derivation, "sovereignty." Its vowels are found in the Massoretic Text with the unpronounceable tetragrammaton " YHWH "; and when the Hebrew reader came to these letters, he always substituted in pronunciation the word " 'adhonay." Its vowels combined with the tetragrammaton form the word "Yahweh (Yahweh)."
When the Spirit of the Lord rests on one's soul they are willing to be submissive to the will of God. This means they are willing to protect the defenseless, preach goods news to the poor in Spirit, heal the brokenhearted, restore spiritual sight to the blind, be a force of deliverance to the captives and liberate the bruised and abused at no charge. Doing for others without looking for anything in return. This divine attribute is the very foundation of the sovereignty of Almighty God. When the Spirit of the Lord is resting on us we are then behaving in God's image and likeness.
Spirit of Wisdom
Wisdom is the Holy Spirit applied to your situation. The easiest way to illustrate this is to show you two passages of Scripture which show the fruit of the Spirit and the manifestation of wisdom to be the same thing. Wisdom is pure. The Holy Spirit, being God, is 100% pure and spotless. Wisdom manifests peace. The fruit of the Spirit is also peace. Wisdom is gentle. The fruit the Holy Spirit produces in your life is gentleness. Wisdom is willing to yield. This sounds an awful lot like humility (and remember that Jesus humbled Himself to the point of death) and meekness (which is power under control).
The fruit of the Spirit is self-control. Wisdom is full of mercy. Jesus is full of mercy, so we know that the Holy Spirit is too, since He is another of the same kind as Jesus. Wisdom is full of good fruits, and the Holy Spirit demonstrates His fruit continually as well. You see the parallels? If the fruit of the Holy Spirit is the same as the fruit of wisdom, then the Holy Spirit is Wisdom personified
"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace (James 3:13-18).
Spirit of Understanding
Although we have the potential to posses God's Wisdom inscribed in our souls does not mean that we'll understand that Wisdom. This third level in the 7-fold ministry is a whole other step. The Spirit of Understanding the supernatural revelation of God.
Olam Ore's (God who is light) secret insights into His Word. Understanding simply means comprehending or a grasping of His Word. The Spirit of God illuminates our hearts and gives us understanding of His Wisdom. In other words, He "turns on the lights for us." Understanding is the Key to all of the Wisdom of the Most High God
Spirit of Counsel
This fourth spirit of Counsel builds on both wisdom, which allows us to judge the things of the world in light of understanding that help us to penetrate to the very core of the mysteries of our faith. The Spirit of counsel, the Holy Spirit speaks to the heart of man and in an instant enlightens us as to what to do. It is the gift that allows us as believers in Christ to be assured that we will act correctly in times of trouble and tribulations. Through counsel, we can speak without fear in defense of our Faith. The Spirit of Counsel enables us to see and choose correctly what will help most to the glory of God and our own salvation. How often have we counselled someone and they felt better and more empowered?
Spirit of Power
Apostle Paul images the living of the Christian life as an empowerment from God. The believer's union with Christ delivers him or her from the power of sin (cf. Romans. 6-8) and introduces him or her to the "power of [Christ's] resurrection (Philippians 3:10). Salvation and holy living provide the Christian with a spirit of power for witness (2 Timothy1:7-8). Apostle Paul's view of the gospel itself is imaged as power (Romans 1:16). Power in Romans 1:16 renders the Greek word dunamis or duvnami.
It is often noted that the Gospel is the dynamite of God because the English word dynamite is derived from dunamis [duvnami]. Such an observation, however, is not a valid use of etymology. Dynamite was not in existence during Apostle Paul's time. He had no such image in his mind. For Apostle Paul, the gospel dunamis or duvnami was the dynamic of God's power conveyed through God's message. When presented to the world, the gospel dynamically works salvation in those who believe. Apostle Paul develops the motif of divine power as the key to Christian living by noting that unless the believer is empowered, it is impossible to please God (Romans 6-8; 1 Corinthians15:56-57).
Spirit of Knowledge
Enlightened by the Spirit of Knowledge, man discovers at the same time the infinite distance which separates things from the Creator, their intrinsic limitation, the danger that they can present, when, through sin, he makes improper use of them.
It is a discovery which leads him to realize with remorse his misery and impels him to turn with greater drive and confidence to him who alone can fully satisfy the need of the infinite which assails him. There are four levels of the Spirit of Knowledge. They are the Knowledge of God's Will, Knowledge of the Truth, Knowledge of Christ, and the Knowledge of Every good thing we have in Christ.
Spirit of Fear of God
When someone truly fears God, it makes the person yield to Him no matter what. This person is in awe and properly trembles before God and His Word for it's not a passing thought. As David wrote, "Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him (Psalms 33:8). Through the prophet Isaiah, God showed He desires this kind of attitude from us: But on this one will I look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit [that is, humbly repentant], and who trembles at My word (Isaiah 66:2).
We see this in Noah, who showed a respectful fear of God when he received the daunting instructions to build a huge ark. As Hebrews11:7 tells us, By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. The fear of God produces godly humility.
