The Word of Knowledge
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit. — 1 CORINTHIANS 12:8
A woman in New York found out that she had a rare disease. At the time, only seven or eight people in the world had ever had this disease. There was no cure for it. The disease wouldn’t kill her the next day, but the doctors said to her, “We have no way of knowing how fast it’s going to progress. Don’t expect to live more than ten years, although you could die sooner because the disease could progress faster.”
Someone told her about Kathryn Kuhlman’s meetings in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Some of her friends took her to Pittsburgh. And in the very first service she attended, Miss Kuhlman began to minister and pointed in her direction. She said, “There’s a woman over here who has a very rare disease. In fact, doctors have told you that only seven or eight people in the world have ever had the disease.”
That was the word of knowledge in operation. Well, the woman was perfectly healed. The doctors couldn’t find a trace of the disease afterward. It had all disappeared.
Confession: I thank God for the gifts of the Spirit. And I thank God for His Word. I don’t have to have a gift of the Spirit in operation to receive healing. I can stand on God’s Word anytime and receive healing.
