What is a, “word of wisdom” after reading several authors and classics by men and women who are knowledgeable on these things. Some prayer and some little experience. It boils down to a specific piece of information, a “word of wisdom” unknown by the natural mind and revealed by the Holy Spirit to the spirit of the believer. The spirit and soul cleansed from sin has a wonderful communion with God in intimacy and confidence. Reference Heb. 9:14
A word of wisdom is the knowledge of God’s will and plan and the foresight to carry it out. It is different from the ” word of knowledge.
In the “word of knowledge” again a piece of God’s knowledge unknown by the natural mind but without the foresight or knowledge of God’s specific will or plan in the future. It is very much present and or past tense. And may not be for anyone’s benefit but yours. Meaning just because you know a thing doesn’t mean it is for you to speak on it. It is not gossip or criticism or suspicion. But may be useful for accurate, effective prayer and intercession and personal ministry.
These two and the “discerning of spirits” are what are traditionally called the “revelation” gifts. God shows or tells, he reveals a thing.
In the discerning of spirits it is right to accept it as the knowledge of a spirit’s character whether angels, demons, and of men also. This is important for our protection and the oversight of the church. How much we need it in these last days!!!
“The discerning of spirits” I believe should include seeing and knowing God by the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Remember blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God!!! These are they that have come out of great tribulation and washed their robes in the blood of the lamb. This is knowing God by the ministry of the Holy Spirit!
Why are these things important? Do you have children? Do you work with unbelievers? Do you speak with others for the cause of Christ? Would you pray through to victory? Would you know God and his will for your life.
While nothing can replace the sure foundation of Gods Word, it is important to remember the Holy Spirit helps us in the things of God and in the knowledge of God. Remember of all people’s the Christian is blessed. For us the truth is a person and His name is Jesus. Please seek God, trust God, and honor God with your life by being available for this precious ministry. The ministry of the Holy Spirit!!!
much luv, an old soldier, bro joe
