Four - Spirit  (For more on numbers, see Associations)

There is a correlation in the scriptures between the number four and the work of the Holy Spirit. Interestingly, there are four Hebrew and Greek words that are translated into the English word Spirit. Similarly, there are four Hebrew and Greek words that are translated into the English word spiritual. There are numerous groupings of fours in the scriptures that correlate with the work of the Holy Spirit. While our chief endeavor in these writings is to study the working of the Holy Spirit, we will be trying to accomplish this by studying the numerous groupings in scriptures of four things. Some of the groupings of four we will be looking at are:


a. The river that was parted into four heads.
b. The four living creatures & four cherubims.
c. The four wheels.
d. The four horses.
e. The four beasts.
f. The four gospels.
g. The four profits of the scriptures.
h. The four winds.
i. Four-square things.
j. Sheet knit at the four corners.
k. Four sore judgments.
l. Four rings; four sockets.
m. Four carpenters.
n. Four gifts of gospel ministers.
