According to 1 Corinthians 12:7, one major reason the Holy Spirit releases some or all of His nine gifts on an individual, is to bring profit to the Kingdom of God. If you are using Gods gifts to amass wealth, popularity and favours from your beneficiaries, you are simply abusing the gifts. Some believers are praying and fasting for certain gifts of the Holy Spirit but they elude them because the ones they have, have not delivered profit to God’s Kingdom. How well have you utilised God’s gifts to enhance God’s Kingdom? Let us start with the revelational gifts. The first under this category is the gift of the word of knowledge. Isaiah 40:28 says,
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, That the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.”
God is so knowledgeable that man cannot scratch a billionth speck of His knowledge. Can you imagine what God knows when Matthew 10:30 says He knows the total number of hair strands on the heads of all the billions of men that He has created? Bible scholars say that each one of them has a special number. This information is valuable to the Police in highly developed countries as they have used the different hair configuration of people to successfully apprehend criminals. Even when different strands of hair look alike, there are still remarkable differences. God knows all the details surrounding the birth, life and death of every creature He has made. Even the billions of stars, God has a name for each of them in the galaxies.
‘He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” Psalm 14 :4
Whenever God takes a bit of what He knows and reveals it to a man, this is referred to as a word of knowledge. God knows everything about everyone and everything in Heaven, on earth and beneath the earth. Nothing is missing from God’s knowledge. God is so full of knowledge that He longs to share a bit with us from time to time. If only you can link up with the Holy Spirit, worship Him daily, cultivate His friendship, and obey Him in all areas of your life, He would hardly do anything that pertains to you or ours that He would not have earlier revealed to you
