For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit. I Corinthians 12:8
In the Abrahamic religions, the term word of knowledge is used to refer to the process by which God reveals knowledge of Himself, His will, and His divine providence to believers. In secondary usage, revelation refers to the revealing of knowledge about God, prophecy, and other divine things.
In Christianity, the word of wisdom is a spiritual gift and the function of this gift varies. Some Christians see in this gift a prophetic-like function. Others see in the word of wisdom a teaching function. This gift is closely related with the gift of the word of knowledge. Divine wisdom and knowledge both come from communing and meditating on the word of God.
In order to receive both wisdom and knowledge one must develop a spiritual dialog with God spending quality time with Him so that when the Holy Spirit moves upon a person to give either a word of wisdom or knowledge to someone the revelation will flow from the heart of God!
To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, judgment, and equity; To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion— A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:1-7
