The Gift of The Word of Knowledge is one of the 9 Gifts of The Holy Spirit listed in 1 Cor Ch 12 .
1 Corinthians 12:4-11 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 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; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
The definition of The Word of Knowledge is: A Supernatural revelation of certain facts in the mind of God that deal with the past or present. This is not a Gift of human knowledge or the “smarts” kind of knowledge. With this Gift only part or a fragment of information is given. God is all knowing but he only gives us what we need to know at any given time.
The gift of The Word of Knowledge in Administration: Administered as the Holy Spirit wills anywhere & anytime through an Individual that has received Christ, received The Baptism in The Holy Spirit, is living a Holy life & is submitted to the leading of The Holy Spirit.
The gift of The Word of Knowledge in Demonstration: *Normally, A Born Again believer who has asked for & received The Baptism in The Holy Spirit & this Gift will suddenly know, hear, see, smell, taste or become aware of a single bit or piece of information that is suddenly revealed to him/her that deals specifically with the past or present. The Information can come through inward revelation, outward revelation, dreams, visions etc. The individual receives a piece of supernaturally revealed information that is coming directly from God.
*It should be noted that many non-Christians such as Paul have had dreams / experiences that were directly from God to relay information to them.
The gift of the Word of Knowledge in Accomplishment: It will have revealed a needed piece or fragment of information that God wants to be known.

The Word of Knowledge is a Good Gift & is to be received Luke 11:9-13 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
