Part 2 - Understanding The Gift of The Word of Knowledge


**Class Notes 7.25.19


What it is: certain facts, true about a person, a people, nation, tongue, city, building, situation, etc.


Examples:


• Mark 2:8 "At once Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were discussing these questions amongst themselves"

• John 1:47 "When Jesus saw Nathaniel coming toward him, he said of him 'Here is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit'." Jesus knew Nathaniel




Purpose of the Word of Knowledge: It is an instant word for a particular time or person or to accomplish a special purpose. God will use these revelatory gifts to accomplish many purposes: to lead people to Christ, to build up faith, to heal, to expose the inner heart of the believer, etc . They will allow us to minister more effectively.


As with all the gifts we need to exercise care that we do not go beyond the revealed word from God.


How it operates in our lives: You know something, but not sure how empathy, dreams, visions, voice of God, nature, colors, songs, images, pictures. *healing
