Revelation, Chapter 1, 4: John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

Revelation, Chapter 3, 1: And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

Revelation, Chapter 4, 5: 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.

Revelation, Chapter 5, 6: And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Very good my friend.  You know how to quote the Bible.  It seems like you have given us four verses of wisdom.

What else can you do?

To do the will of God.
So what does the posting of verses from Revelation have to do with doing the will of God?  ???

Ask yourself, what does posting verses from the
Book of Revelation not have to do with the will of God.

You answer that question first, then I will give you the answer
to your question you asked me.

Anytime you are doing anything in the word of God
you are doing the will of God True or false?

It doesn't work that way, Stephen. You're the one who started the thread, and I asked you a perfectly reasonable question. This is a discussion forum, after all.

If you do not want me posting scriptures
from the bible on this forum just tell me so.

I will stop doing it. Unless the Spirit of the Lord instructed me other wise.

James, Chapter 4, 15: For that ye ought to say,
If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

Stephen, posting scripture verses alone is not a discussion. It's a monologue.

Leviticus 13:41

And if a man's hair falls out from his forehead, he has baldness of the forehead; he is clean.

Micah 1:16

Make yourselves bald and cut off your hair, for the children of your delight; make yourselves as bald as the eagle, for they shall go from you into exile.

Acts 18:18

After this, Paul stayed many days longer and then took leave of the brothers and set sail for Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila. At Cenchreae he had cut his hair, for he was under a vow.

Ezekiel 29:18

“Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre. Every head was made bald, and every shoulder was rubbed bare, yet neither he nor his army got anything from Tyre to pay for the labor that he had performed against her.

Ezekiel 27:31

They make themselves bald for you and put sackcloth on their waist, and they weep over you in bitterness of soul, with bitter mourning.

2 Kings 2:23-24

He went up from there to Bethel, and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” And he turned around, and when he saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the woods and tore forty-two of the boys.

Acts 21:24

Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses, so that they may shave their heads. Thus all will know that there is nothing in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself also live in observance of the law.

Leviticus 13:40


“If a man's hair falls out from his head, he is bald; he is clean.

You still haven't answered my earlier questions like you promised. "Because the Lord told me to" is no answer.
