|Through the gift of the Holy Spirit, a Christian can obtain strategic knowledge previously unknown. These insights may be a catalyst for prayer or increase the receptivity of the one being prayed for.
The Bible briefly references revelatory activity in 1 Corinthians 12:8. Here, Paul declares, “The Spirit gives the gift of the word of revelation knowledge.”
Scripture doesn’t provide details about operating in spiritual gifts. Nevertheless, there are hints–if you look carefully. The prophets of old saw “pictures” or heard “sounds.” They picked up on the things of God in the realm of the imagination.
Does God still speak through the senses? I believe that He does. I have found that the LORD sometimes brings illumination in the recesses of the mind.
I would like to point out some of the different ways that people receive words of knowledge today.
1. See It
2. Think It
3. Say It
4. Read It
5. Feel It
6. Dream It
Words of knowledge can be challenging. Nevertheless, I would encourage you to be open to hearing from God in visceral ways. This can stir the heart and open the door to incredible things.
