Spiritual Gift Knowledge

Spiritual Gift Knowledge

The Greek word for the Spiritual Gift of Knowledge is “gnōsis” G1108

Definition and Purpose of the Knowledge Gift

The spiritual gift of knowledge is the special ability God gives to whereby the Spirit enables certain Christians to understand in an exceptional way the great truths of God’s Word and to make them relevant to specific situations in the Church. Groups need someone with this gift to break up truth into smaller portions to better understand, to investigate and systemize facts into a manageable order, and to always remain aware of important facts to share with the group.

Vulnerability of Knowledge

All the gifts, talents and abilities that we have can be used negatively.  When knowledge is used in a selfish, harsh, over-barring, reckless manner or when it is enabling sin or dysfunctional behavior, it would not be Spirit-led or an expression of love.  This gift is best used when coupled with Faith, Evangelist, Encouragement, Interpretation, Tongues and Miracles.

For example, someone with the Knowledge gifting could be blessed with a factual character, but in turn can unintentionally become prideful.
