Distinction between the logos word, and the rhema word, of God - 7
Thursday, May 16, 2019
“And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word [logos] of God with boldness” (Acts 4:31 NKJV).
“Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word [rhema] word of God which lives and abides forever, because all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word [rhema] of the LORD endures forever” (1 Peter1:22-25 NKJV).
Whether in reading a logos word, or in having a rhema word revealed to our spirit, God’s word is always working for our good.
“For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37).
