The Seven Gifts Of The Holy Spirit Crop Circle

While studying the recent and soon to be famous crop circle event Ackling Dyke, Nr Sixpenny Handley, Dorset. Reported 4th June. 

Its seven pointed star with the circles above each of the seven angles was very similar to a sheriff’s badge.

In 1850, there was very little sign of Christianity or of any religion for that matter in San Francisco. The San Francisco Police Department was established in the same year. At that time and for several years to follow, the police officers wore different uniforms and police stars (five and/or 6-pointed stars). It wasn’t until 1886, that C.W. Warner hired a jeweler named Irvine Jachens (on behalf of the San Francisco Police Department) to craft the seven-pointed star. According to John Garvey, (Images of America – San Francisco Police Department 2004), the seven-pointed star represents the “seven seals” of the Book of Revelation in the New Testament that include virtue, divinity, prudence, fortitude, honor, glory and praising God (Garvey 2004). All favorable traits that police officers were expected to espouse. The Department adopted the seven-pointed star to remind everyone of the precepts by which the officers were guided.

History of 7-Point Star

The Book of Isaiah speaks more eloquently about the Seven Gifts of The Holy Spirits and they are:

  1. Wisdom
  2. Understanding
  3. Counsel
  4. Fortitude
  5. Knowledge
  6. Piety
  7. Fear (Respect) of the Lord.

Isaiah 11: 2

 And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

In Hermeticism and The Seven Principles:

“For there were in the Chaos, an infinite darkness in the Abyss or bottomless Depth, and Water, and a subtle Spirit intelligible in Power; and there went out the “Holy Light” and the Elements were coagulated from the Sand out of the moist Substance.

And when all things were interminated and unmade up, the light things were divided on high. And the heavy things were founded upon the moist sand, all things being Terminated or Divided by Fire; and being sustained or hung up by the Spirit they were so carried, and the Heaven was seen in Seven Circles.”
