And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

Revelations 4:5


lightnings and thunderings in Revelations? Notes on this verse say that thunderings was once thunderclaps but I do not know. Is this a nod towards the storm god of Israel “yahweh”? Theology question: We know of Our Father in Heaven, Jesus who is The Son of God, and the Holy Spirit. These three are separate but also considered to be the same. I say this because of verses where Jesus told us that only God would know when he would return at the end of tribulations/Revelations. Jesus also prayed to God before he was crucified. Knowing this, who are the seven Spirits of God? From looking at other verses in Revelations, I think this may be 7 angels, but from the capitalization and the title I think this may be elevating the angels above their status. I’m unsure of how things play out with the angels now in the book of Revelations. What is the point of all this?
