We're teaching on t gifts of t H.S. Last weak we were on t Word of Wisdom. I didn't finish w/ it as of yet, So that's were we're going to pick up. A Word of Wisdom is a supernatural revelation of t purpose of God.
I. 1COR 12:1
A. As we said before t Word of Wisdom is only a FRAGMENTED part of God's wisdom.
1. This gift, as well as all t others, is given to every man as t Spirit wills.
a. 1COR 12:11
B. We said last time that in t Word of Knowledge, it deals w/ t past_or present. Something that already happened or something that is happening.
1. T Word of Wisdom always deals w/ t Future.
a. For example, something that is going to happen to someone if they continue doing a certain thing or it can also be used to tell someone how to get out of a problem that is already in existence.
II. Sometimes people get this gift of t Word of Wisdom confused w/ simple wisdom.
A. (JOS 1:8) Says, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." (KJV)
1. Another translation says, "Thou shall make thyself prosperous & thou shalt be able to deal wisely in t affairs of life."
a. There is a wisdom that is gained thru t knowledge of God's Word.
i. But that not a supernatural manifestation.
2. Many think Solomon's wisdom was a manifestation of t Word of Wisdom, but it wasn't.
a. Solomon's wisdom was given to him by God.
b. JAMES 1:5
i. God has promised that all of us can have this type of wisdom daily. It's our's as often as we need it or want it.
ii. But it's not t super natural manifestation of t Word of Wisdom, which only comes as t Spirit wills.
II. T Word of Wisdom, like t Word of Knowledge, can come in many forms.
A. It can be given by an audible voice, it can come thru a vision, it can be given in a dream, it can come thru a prophesy or an interpretation of tongues, we've seen it come thru an angel_to Philip, it can also come thru someone teaching or preaching t Word. (unaware)
1. Look at ACTS 11:28‑30
a. Agabus prophesied that a drought was coming, & t people believed him because he was a man of integrity & he had a proven ministry.
i. You can't believe everything that everyone says.
ii. You have to judge things weather they are in line w/ God's Word or not.
1. (1CO 14:29) Says, "Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge." (KJV)
iii. You have to judge t thing, t action, not t person.
Iv. You don't sent your children to a satanic church, Why? Because you've judged that to be wrong.
v. Sin is sin, just call it what it is, WRONG.
B. There are times that a Word of Knowledge can be conditional.
1. 2KINGS 20:1‑5
a. God told Isaiah to tell Hezekiah, that he was going to die & for him to set his house in order.
b. Isaiah did, but before he could leave t court yard, Hezekiah repented & God told Isaiah to go back & tell him that I'll give him 15 more years.
i. He also gave him another Word of Wisdom, Something that was God's plan for Hezekiah.
III. Look at ACTS 21:10‑11
A. Notice that there was something that was revealed.
1. When any revelation comes, it is always a Word of Wisdom,
a Word of Knowledge, or Discerning of spirits.
a. There are no other gifts of revelation listed in t Bible.
2. This manifestation of a gift of t Spirit is not a word of
Knowledge, because it is looking to t future.
a. This is not t discerning of spirits, we don't see any
b. Because it talks about t future it has it be t Word
B. We'll end w/ this last scripture. ACTS 27:9‑11._
1. But after they set sail they hit heavy storms.
2. V 20‑24
a. This again was a Word of Wisdom that came to Paul thru an angel.
b. It was giving God's purpose & it was revealing a future event. (Did it to protect)
