Is the Holy Spirit? 3 -The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

You are probably wondering why I think we should ask for the Word of Wisdom and Word of Knowledge  before asking for the gift of Tongues.

Even knowing the Lord gave Tongues first on the day on Pentecost.  Really? If so, it was because He was dealing with Disciples.


People who had been with Him, studied at His feet, they were Jewish and knew about Ritual Sacrifice and after His death and resurrection, understood.

Paul in 1 Corinthians 12 goes in a completely different order, tells them to desire the best gifts.  He starts with the three listen up gifts.

We first need to learn how to understand what the Lord wants.  A few Old Testament examples  of the Word of Knowledge, then Word of Wisdom :

Adam, you may eat of every tree but that one.
Noah, We are going to destroy the earth and all flesh, build an Ark.
Abram,  go out from Ur, look east, west, north and south, I have given the land to you.

How about a few not written down?
Elijah told Ahab. will not rain till I  tell it to…
Deborah told Barack the Lord wanted him to go and defeat the enimy…
Daniel, the dream the king had.

These are all Old Testament examples of Words of Knowledge.   What is a Word of Wisdom.  That is knowing what to do with the Knowledge.

Adam,  didn’t have the Wisdom to obey God, so death came into the world.
Noah, with the Knowledge to build the Ark, did it and received a Word of Wisdom,  when to enter.
Abram,  every place on which your foot shall tread. ..
Elijah, gave his Word of Knowledge, than The Lord spoke a word of Wisdom, “You better go hide”.

Unspoken :
Deborah,  How the Lord would cause a women to get the credit for the victory.
Daniel,  What the dream meant and how to prepare for the coming  Climate Change.


Don’t know about that?  It seems to me the Bible is our guide book to life.  Doesn’t it stand to reason He would be directing whosoever will, by all His Word.

We too easily say: “That’s a God thing”.  Remember when Jesus was on earth, He was just a man tempted every way as we are.

The Power He displayed came from the Father, through the Holy Spirit into and out of Jesus.   He told us to go and do the same.

If you will look up these examples and ask the Lord to show you, the Revelation is there, waiting for us to act on it.

Lord open our eyes, that we might understand and go forward to do Your Will in Your Power and Might.  The Gift of Faith is next.

What God wants 4 – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

God is looking for Love.

There are 3 kinds of Love:  Agape :  This is Gods love for us. A love like I have for my child and you for your children. You would jump in front of a train to save their life. “No greater love is there, than a man giving his life for another.”

Then there is Phillio love : or brotherly love, a love we have for those we care for, brotherly love.

Eros love:  Lust, our favorite, which eventually wares off and we end up with devorce.

Gods love is such that He kept trying to find a people who would love and obey Him.

Many years later, we find Abram,  who becomes Abraham because he believed the promise of God,  At 100 years old he would Father many nations.

He did and the Old Testament is full of the stories of the Hebrews  or Jews, The Lords chosen people.   They loved the Lord, fell into sin, began to be enslaved by this sin. Cried out to the Lord.

The Lord forgives them and sends Moses, Joshua then Judges to save them: Best known are Gideon,  Samson  and 10 others, this goes on for hundreds of years.  Love God, fall away, troubles, cry out to God, God saves, Love God….repeat …….again and again.

Then the people want to be like all the other Nations and have a king.  Saul, David (a man after Gods own heart), a sinner who knew how to repent.  Solomon  and many more, love God, fall away, (repeat over and over) untill He sent His Son.


John 3:16-17
King James Version (KJV)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
