So what does it mean?

In that first verse, it went on to tell us that these seven eyes (of Jesus) were “the seven Spirits of God”. What does that mean? Again, we just have to look for other examples of that phrase in the Bible...

Revelation 4:5 (KJ21) 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;

This tells us seven spirits are the same as the seven lamps of fire. So we go to where the Bible talks about them!

Revelation 1:20 (KJ21) ...the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

So the candlesticks are churches, and the seven stars are angels. That’s fine, but that doesn’t help us — at least, not until we put them together with another verse:

Hebrews 1:7 (KJ21) And of the angels He saith, “Who maketh His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire.

With this, you can see that the connection between candlesticks and stars is the flame on top of the candle! After all, doesn’t it look a little bit like a star?

See how easy this is? You just ask the obvious questions, and take it one step at a time. But I promised you a method to get real, satisfying answers — and honestly, seeing seven angels on Jesus is just a little better than seeing seven eyes on a lamb!
