Summary: A sermon explaining what is rhema and what rhema can do in our life
What is Rhema?
It is a Greek word. - It means the spoken word.
When we say Rhema, we are meaning the direct spoken word of God. Rhema is to build up of the body of Christ, can be an information, revelation or instruction.
We can say that it is the Holy Spirit speaking directly to our human spirit,because spirit can only communicate with spirit.
John 4:24 God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth
Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
This verse is very interesting in that it first of all speaks about the (1) written word, and (2) secondly it speaks about the spoken word.
According to this verse, ‘proceeds’ is not past tense, but rather present and continuous.
It means we are wrong if we think that GOD does not speak to us today.
If we think about it, we will realize that God is Father who want to speak to his children, His literal sons and daughters, just as any parent does.
However, what we prefer is a set of rules and regulations to follow. This has been the case for thousands of years.
It is a rare thing for someone to want the Eternal to speak to them directly.
However, we need to be honest, and admit that though we have clearly defined commandments, the very last thing that any one wants to do, is to obey them.
We tend to want to do what we consider to be good and right in our own eyes, regardless of the written or spoken direct word of the Eternal God. We have to learn to listen and obey the Word of God.
