2 direct ways I know:
Marc Autret: Indiscripts :: IndexMatic
Peter Kahrel: Index | Peter Kahrel
Incidentally, we can play it with a color or a character style:
Thomas Silkjaer: Index from color
Martin Fischer: Index from character style
It remains to apply them "on the fly" (in one click) to the list of words! Quite possible with Multi-Find/Change our friend Martinho da Gloria!
Enjoy! [ as my friend pixxxel schubser often say! ]

Comment: One way to make a concordance words list when no list!
Read the text and mark each word you want with a "index" condition! Then use Peter Kahrel's Grep Query Manager to "extract this "Index condition" words list!
Let me explain more about my question:
I have more than 900 words or sentences which are listed in an especial file. These words are got from a 1000 pages document. Now I want to make an Index below the document with these listed words, NOT by selecting one-by-one words. Because selecting all 900 words in 1000 pages document is very hard and maybe impossible.
In MS-Word it is possible to AutoMark all these 900 words in the document totally (by that file), without need to select all words in the document.
Now this is my exact question that it is possible to do in InDesign or not? If not, is there a technic which can help me? e. g. selecting all these words in the InDesign document to make index.

But then you might as well use InDesign's index generation tool.

Your question was perfectly clear the first time. The two scripts referenced do exactly what you want: create an index on the basis of a word list. Maybe read the descriptions of the scripts.
I can make an Index word by word, but want to make Index for all words in the list. Please explain more how?
Page 13 of the user guide (you don't even have to open the PDF, you can see it in the preview) is entitled Turning a word list into an index.
Go to www.kahrel.plus.com/indesign/index_independent.html
The first sentence on that page reads '[. . .] the script creates an index on the basis of a word list'.
How would you interpret those two sentences?
No because the op only tries to search one occurrence, not all! ;-)
