The Seven Spirits of God are Angels

But to which of the angels said He at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits , sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? Heb. 1;13,14


And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. Rev. 8:2(and from the sevenSpirits which are before his throne; Rev. 1:4)

Out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues. They were dressed in clean, shining linen and wore golden sashes around their chests. Rev. 15:6
