Word of knowledge – Simple activation

November 27, 2011

I wanted to share this short basic training and activation on the Holy Spirit word of knowledge. This is a simple training/activation video and a short teaching. There are many books and teachings that go more in depth. But I hope this will help you get the word of knowledge gears rolling with the Holy Spirit. Blessings on you! Jason

Word of Knowledge-Teaching

– Basic Training and Activation –

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;..” 1 Corn 12:7-9

This is a very basic teaching and activation on Words of knowledge (W.O. K) focused for physical healing. My desire is to help you start being more aware of some of these ways that the Holy Spirit is communicating to you. W.O.K. are specific supernatural details about a person’s life that are current or past tense. Prophecy is different because it can be futuristic in nature. Words of Knowledge can be answered with a “yes” or “no” response. An example would be if I asked you if you had pain in your left knee. The answer would be “yes” or “no”. If I saw a picture of African over you and you didn’t have a heart for Africa that could be a futuristic prophetic insight or I could be off. Words of knowledge are provable facts past or present tense.

God can give you words of knowledge to powerfully open up the hardest of hearts for ministry. When the Holy Spirit gives us supernatural details into people’s lives that will usually open their hearts for more ministry.

Acts 9:11 is a great example of the word of knowledge: The Lord told him, “Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.” (See how God gave Ananias several specific details to find Saul. His name, the location and the prayer need)

Words of knowledge come in many different ways. Gods first language is not English. He speaks in many ways. Hebrews 1:1 says God speaks in “various ways”. We will cover some of the more common ways we get words of knowledge. They can be very subtle and slight in nature or be overwhelming. Pay close attention to any slight impression you sense as the Holy Spirit activates you.

Vision Seeing

These usually appear on the inner screen of our minds. Our image center is the same place where we use our imagination. They can be a single picture like a snapshot or viewed like watching a movie.

Exercise Close your eyes and picture a beach in Hawaii see the blue ocean a palm tree and a white hammock gently moving in the breeze. Could you envision that?

Ask the Holy Spirit to show you a body part that needs healing of someone you will meet this week. Take a minute and write down those body parts on a piece of paper.

Physical Impression-touch

These are physical Holy Spirit impressions that are felt on your body. They may feel very slight and be easily missed or they may be very strong in nature. You may sense heat, sympathy pain, electricity, a pressure, a breeze or coldness etc on a body part.

Exercise– Close your eyes and ask the Holy Spirit to release physical impressions on you. Just relax and become aware of your body. Don’t try to do anything but to just be aware of feeling any sensation on your body. Take 1 minute to do this. Whatever body part you felt the impression on write it down on your paper.

AudibleHearing or Knowing

These can come as quick random thoughts. You may be talking to your waitress and all of a sudden you think of a person you know that suffers from insomnia. God is probably giving you insight into a need that your waitress has. You will never know unless you take a risk and ask her. Sometimes the word of knowledge will be an internal knowing. The world calls that esp. You just know that you know. The Holy Spirit may also speak as a still small voice to your spirit in English. Or He may speak out loud as if someone was talking out loud.

Exercise- Be still and quiet. Ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you about a specific prayer need for someone who you know. Write that down.

Other ways

Feeling emotions-You may sense the emotional atmosphere of a region, location or a person. You will feel the emotions or mood of the environment or person in your proximity. God allows you to sense this so you can partner and release what He desires into that environment.

Holy Spirit highlight-A person or body part on a person just seems to be highlighted. The Holy Spirit is supernaturally pointing something or somebody out to you. It is always a great idea to take a risk and talk to that person or ask the person if the body part that stands out needs a healing.

Activation – Take your paper with you this week with the Holy Spirit words of knowledge on it. Pay attention to anyone that you see this week that may need healing in that area. Also If you receive a W.O.K. as you are about your day ask the Holy Spirit who it is for. Then whoever seems to stand out to you probably needs ministry. I encourage you to ask that person if that W.O.K. makes sense to them. Then ask if you can pray for the. Use short command prayers and have them test it out. Give thanks for any improvement and pray again if needed. Make sure you show them that you and Jesus loves them! And remember with practice (Heb 5:14) our spiritual senses grow. We are training ourselves to perceive the Holy Spirits voice like tuning a radio dial. So I encourage you to take time everyday and engage and see what the great Holy Spirit shows you through the word of knowledge. Then step out and release Jesus on them!

    You are a bold man of god and there are many who respect you and look up to you including myself and I just want to thank you now for the difference your making on the earth and remind you that your reward will be great in heaven…I have one question though…what do you do if you miss it?

      hey justin,
      great question. if i miss it i realize that the word of knowledge may be right but i picked the wrong person to ask. also people dont always amdit it even if you are right. but i know i do miss it too. so i just tell myself “good try” and then i keep going because even if i miss it people are usually blessed that i tried to love on them. also i will get a encouraging word for them or ask if i can pray for them anyways by saying something like. Ok you dont have this problem but do you have any pain in your body or do you need prayer for anything else. bro i really encourage to step out and try and never quit…hahah the Holy Spirit will back you:) blessings jason, hope this help man

    The part where you say you saw an African over someone who didn’t have a heart for that continent has been of significant help to me. In you taking a risk, I have been blessed – thank you. I don’t feel it necessary, nor right to give further details, but know that even the little things get noticed and that by taking heaven-led steps mountains will move. Be loved and blessed beyond measure.
