Words of Knowledge and Words of Wisdom — The gifts of Words of Knowledge and Words of Wisdom are prophetic in nature. They require the user to know God’s voice and His heart and to follow His direction. This requirement is a general thread in many of gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Word of Knowledge allows the believer to supernaturally know and understand something that was not learned or previously known by that person. The Word of Wisdom is the ability to counsel and advise others from supernatural guidance provided by the Holy Spirit.
