1 Corinthians 12:8 (NKJV)
for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,…
Word of Wisdom: This is a supernatural revelation by the spirit of God concerning the divine purpose and plan of God regarding future events. A Word of Wisdom can warn people of impending danger; of future judgement; and of God’s purpose for their future.
Word of Knowledge: This gift is a supernatural revelation by the Spirit of God concerning certain facts that only God would know – facts that are either concerning the present or the past. A Word of Knowledge is God revealing things to you concerning a past occurrence or a present situation – that in your own self you would not otherwise know.
The Word of Knowledge deals with past or present facts – the Word of Wisdom looks to the plan of God for the future. And friends, the Spirit of God is the distributor of these two Gifts of the Spirit. Again, there is nothing you can do to earn these, they are Gifts given to the body of Christ and manifest when the Spirit of God wants them to be revealed. My prayer is for a manifestation of these revelations gifts to be unfolded by the Spirit of God in our midst.
