9 GIFTS MINISTRIES, INC. - "Got Gifts?"       I Corinthians  12:1-11
"word  of  knowledge"

A Revelation Gift

The spiritual gift of the Word of Knowledge is the bestowal of certain facts from the mind of God which He sees fit to reveal to one of His servants.

The supernatural comprehension of Christ and His Word.  The word of Knowledge is a sure conviction, impression, or knowing that comes to you in a similitude, a dream, a vision, or by a Scripture that quickens you.  Supernatural insight or understanding of circumstances, situations, problems, or a body of facts by revelation; without any human resource, solely by divine aid, by the Holy Spirit. 


The dictionary defines Wisdom as ~ the fact or state of knowing; the perception of fact or truth; clear and certain mental apprehension; the sum of what is known. The Knowledge of God is distinguished by a more greater certainty and opinion.  We assume.....God Knows. The gift of the word of knowledge is found in the Old Testament and in the New Testament. 
See   I Samuel 9 and Acts 9.  God's purpose of this gift is to help one look into the heart, mind, or nature of a man and to know his intentions, and secrets.  This gift is used to find lost souls.
