1017 – The Word of Wisdom智慧的言语

1 Corinthians 12:8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same SpiritThe word of wisdom is a supernatural revelation of the divine purposes and plan in the mind or will of God that is “dropped” into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, and it always refers to future events. It is not acquired wisdom in the affairs of life which is nothing supernatural and is given to everyone who asks God for it, nor applied knowledge. Rather, it is a gift of the Holy Spirit.Although God is omniscient, He can choose to reveal to us only a fragment of what He knows, and it can come in the form of a vision, dream, audible voice, knowing, “rhema” word, prophecy and or tongues with interpretation.

Acts 9:10-12,15 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.” So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.”…. But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel.

The word of wisdom is different from the word of knowledge, though the two can work together as in this passage. God revealed to Ananias the address and person to minister to—present facts, and what Saul was doing and how he received a vision—past facts, so both are words of knowledge. When God told Ananias that Paul was His chosen vessel, that was a word of wisdom which relates to the future, revealing God’s plan and purpose for Paul’s life.

Although the word of wisdom reveals something to us, it is up to us how we respond. God may give us a warning to stop us from harm, or it can be a revelation of divine counsel—a supernatural insight into both the issue at hand and God’s Word to bring about a practical application or solution (Luke 21:13-14).

The Bible says that in the last days, God has poured out His Spirit on all flesh, so we can prophesy, see visions and dream dreams including operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Let’s be open to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and be receptive to His work and prompting.

这人蒙 圣 灵赐他智慧的言语,那人也蒙这位 圣 灵赐他知识的言语,
哥林多前书 12:8


虽然神 无所不知,但他可以选择只把一小部分他所知道的向我们启示,它会以异象、梦、听见的声音、感知、瑞玛 (rhema透过圣经所领受的话语),预言,或翻译的方言这些方式出现。

使徒行传9: 10-12, 15 10当下,在大马士革有一个门徒,名叫亚拿尼亚。主在异象中对他说:“亚拿尼亚。”他说:“主,我在这里。” 主对他说:“起来!往直街去,在犹大的家里,访问一个大数人,名叫扫罗。他正祷告, 又看见了一个人,名叫亚拿尼亚,进来按手在他身上,叫他能看见。”…. 主对亚拿尼亚说:“你只管去!他是我所拣选的器皿,要在外邦人和君王,并以色列人面前宣扬我的名。

智慧的言语和知识的言语不同,纵使这两者同在这段经文中相辅相成。神向亚拿尼亚启示所要服事的对象以及他的所在,这是现在存在的事实。神也启示亚拿尼亚关于过去的事实,就是扫罗从前的所作所为及如何看见异象,这些都是关乎知识的言语。当 神进一步告诉亚拿尼亚,扫罗(保罗)是祂所拣选的器皿,揭示 神对保罗生命的计划和旨意,这是未来要发生的事,属于智慧的言语。

尽管智慧的言语向我们启示了一些事物,但如何回应祂的启示,则取决于我们。有时候神给予我们一个提醒,避免我们受到伤害;亦可能一个来之于神的启示忠告– 一个对眼前问题的超自然的洞察,神的话语带来实际的应用或解决方案。
