The Gift of the Word of Wisdom

December 22, 2021

1 Corinthians 12:7–8

7 "But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8 "For to one is given by the Spirit THE WORD OF WISDOM; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit."

Excerpt from “The Holy Spirit and His Gifts Study Course” by Kenneth E. Hagin:


“In studying the nine gifts of the Spirit, we can see from the Scriptures that all of these gifts work according to '. . . that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will" (1 Cor. 12:11).

"The Holy Spirit Distributes Spiritual Gifts as HE WILLS.

"Let me emphasize again that as a church — a local body of believers — we are to desire that these gifts be made manifest among us, and we are to leave it up to the Holy Spirit to use whomever He wills.

“The Gift of the Word of Wisdom

people sometimes call these the gift of wisdom or the gift of knowledge. That is not correct, however. We must call spiritual gifts what the Bible calls them or we will become confused.

"For example, if you called a dog a cat, people would say you were confused. The gift of the word of knowledge is not the gift of knowledge, and the gift of the word of wisdom is not the gift of wisdom any more than a dog is a cat.

"First Corinthians 12:8 is not talking about natural wisdom and knowledge in the general sense. It is talking about just what it says — the Word of Wisdom and the Word of Knowledge. And these gifts of the Word of Wisdom and the Word of Knowledge are given supernaturally. They are not natural gifts.

Thank You, Father, for these gifts. In Jesus's name, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember  that the best is yet to come.
