Rhema Word Of God

The source of faith is always God's Word. But there is a supernatural "mountain-moving" gift of faith that comes through a Spirit-given revelation or the Rhema Word of God. Romans 10:17 says that faith comes by hearing the word (rhema) of God.

In the Greek text, the Word of God can be expressed both as the logos and the rhema. The logos means the sum total or whole counsel of God's Word. The logos therefore is the entire Bible--the Holy Scriptures. Jesus is the living Word ("Logos") because He is the full, expressed image of who God is (Heb. 1:2-3).

On the other hand, the rhema is a word spoken for a particular occasion for a specific person. It is a personal word from God to you--a word that you should take immediate action upon.

Christianity is not a philosophical, moralistic religion. Your relationship with God is alive and very dynamic. God longs to speak to you on a daily basis (3:7-8). Jesus says, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word (rhema) that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Matt. 4:4).

The written scriptures give us the general principles of God to live by. But each day, we should be led dynamically by the Holy Spirit and tune our spiritual ears to hear the words that flow from His mouth!

God's rhema word to you becomes the basis for your dreams and visions. You have a direct word from heaven for your life and destiny! The faith that comes from a rhema is very powerful. It becomes the sword of the Spirit (Eph. 6:17). You can use it as a weapon against doubts and condemnatory accusations of Satan whenever he tries to hinder you from reaching your dream.

With the rhema, Peter was able to walk on water (Matt. 14:22-23). With the rhema, Jesus healed the paralytic who was infirm for 38 years (John 5:1-8). With the rhema, Paul boldly became the apostle to the Gentile world (Acts 9:15-16).

Start learning to hear the rhema word from the Holy Spirit. Develope an active relationship with Him. Do not be afraid to make mistakes as you learn to discern the Holy Spirit's leading and spiritual impressions.

Without tuning to the rhema, there can be no strong, powerful faith. Christianity would become a dry and dull religion. But with the rhema, your Christian life will become a daily adventure with the Holy Spirit!
