Knowledge + Revelation -> Prophecy

1 Corinthians 12:8 – For to one through the Spirit a word of wisdom is given, and to another a word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit…

“In our meetings, everyone can open his mouth to speak. When every one of us speaks, the riches of the Body of Christ are expressed. When we prophesy for the Lord, we need the spiritual words, and these spiritual words come from God’s Spirit of life (1 Cor. 12:8). This Spirit will grant us the words, the utterance, and the boldness to prophesy. When we depend on Him, we can prophesy for the Lord unto the building up of the Body of Christ” (God’s Way in Life, p. 43-44).

I was impressed this morning that we all have the capacity to speak! More so, we have the capacity to speak when we depend on the Lord. Apart from the Lord, the words that we utter from day to day can be meaningless and empty. But – when we come to the Word of God to receive understanding (knowledge), and when this very Word enlightens us (wisdom), then we have a way to speak forth God for the building up of the Body of Christ. It is the Spirit who gives life (John 6:63), and when we receive this life through the Word, we have the boldness to prophesy. Hallelujah! 🙂
