But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit,
(1 Corinthians 12:7-9 NKJV)
3 WISDOM (REVELATION) GIFTS
THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE
THE WORD OF WISDOM
1. THE GIFT OF THE WORD OF KNOWLEDGE STARTS WITH KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S WORD
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
(Hosea 4:6 NKJV)
2. THE GIFT OF THE WORD OF WISDOM IS RIGHTLY APPLYING KNOWLEDGE
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
(James 1:5 NKJV)
KNOWLEDGE WITHOUT WISDOM IS DANGEROUS
3. THE GIFT OF FAITH IS AN UNWAVERING, UNSHAKING, UNCOMPROMISING ASSURANCE OF GOD’S WORD BEING TRUE!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen….By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
(Hebrews 11:1, 3 NKJV)
