1020 – The Word of Knowledge 知识的言语

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 Spirit

The word of knowledge is a spiritual gift that falls under the category of “revelation gifts” along with the word of wisdom and discerning of spirits. It is the supernatural revelation by the Holy Spirit on certain facts in the mind of God relating to people, places or things, either about the present or the past.

The word of knowledge cannot be acquired through academic studies as it is a gift of the Holy Spirit given to us by grace. Rather, it is a Word “dropped” into our spirit man. It is a manifestation of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and it might bring about encouragement, a warning, expose something or reveal matters.

God in His wisdom has given us the Holy Spirit as a teacher, comforter and helper. Therefore, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are the manifestation of His ministry through the body of Christ and He has distributed the gifts as according to His will. The same anointing that Jesus operated under is operating in our lives through the gifts He has given to us. Jesus told us that the work He did, we, the church will also do and greater work than what He has done because He is going to the Father. He has sent the Holy Spirit to help us in the ministry so that we can continue to preach the gospel and minister under the power and influence of the Holy Spirit. However, Jesus said that apart from Him we can do nothing. Therefore, we need to be connected to the vine.

An example of this gift in operation is found in John 4:16-18 where Jesus had a word of knowledge over the woman of Samaria and a word of wisdom about worship. It was a supernatural manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and Jesus used this revelation or word of knowledge that the woman had five husbands to point her to her salvation.

Although God is omniscient, He doesn’t reveal everything to us, but will often just give us a word, or a fragment of what He knows. Also, the word of knowledge will be revealed to us in many ways, such as during a conversation with someone or during worship and prayer sessions, so let’s get to know the prompting and leading of the Holy Spirit, and respond to the word of knowledge revealed as it is a supernatural revelation by God.

知识的言语

哥林多前书12:8 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,

知识的言语是圣灵的恩赐,与智慧的言语以及鉴别诸灵的恩赐同属于“启示性的恩赐“。它是圣灵把神的心意中有关人、地或事,无论是现在的或还是过去的一种超自然的启示。

知识的言语没有办法透过学术上的学习而得到,因为它是来自于圣灵藉着恩典所赐的礼物。相反的,圣经中的某个字句可能会突然“掉入”我们的灵人。它是圣灵在我们生命中工作的一种彰显,祂带来的可能是一个鼓励、一个警告、曝光某件事、或者揭露事态。

神以祂的智慧,已经给了我们圣灵作为我们的老师、安慰者、和帮助者。因此,圣灵的恩赐是祂的事工藉着基督肢体的彰显,并且祂已经随着自己的的心意赐下各样的恩赐给人。在耶稣基督里运行的恩膏同样的也会藉由神给我们的圣灵运行在我们生命里。耶稣告诉我们祂所做的工作,而我们—教会要做的比这更大,因为祂要往父那里去。祂已经差遣圣灵来帮助我们的事工,所以我们可以继续的宣扬福音,并在圣灵的能力和影响力之下服侍。然而,耶稣说,离开了祂,我们什么也不能做。因此我们需要与枝子连结。

在约翰福音第四章16到18节中,我们可以看到这个恩赐运行的例子。耶稣对撒玛利亚妇人有一句知识的言语,还有一句关于敬拜的智慧的言语,这是圣灵恩赐超自然的彰显。耶稣以这个启示,或者说是知识的言语,来告诉着妇人她有五个丈夫,以此引导她走向救赎。

虽然神是无所不知的,祂却不会向我们显现所有的事情。不过祂常常会给我们一个话语,或者祂所知道的其中的一小部分。并且知识的话语会透过很多不同的方式显示给我们,例如和某人的交谈之间,敬拜赞美的时候,或是祷告会期间。所以让我们知晓圣灵的督促和带领,并且对知识的话语做出回应,因为这是来自神超自然的启示。
