WHAT IS RHEMA?
Rhema is an underlying fact. Hence, the dictionary gives a synonymous meaning to the definition of rhema;
Information revealed: information that is newly disclosed, especially surprising, or valuable
Surprising thing: a surprisingly good or valuable experience
Disclosure: the revealing of something previously hidden or secret
Christianity demonstration of divine will: a showing or revealing of what is believed to be divine will or truth
Scripture says in Philemon 1:6;
“That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus”
In other words, there most first of all be an acceptance of the said i.e. RHEMA before you are permitted to see or enjoy its dividend. Rhema is not just to be read or heard but must be acted upon to actualize or kick it into effect. For the sake of our study in this series, we are made to understand that Rhema is winged. How true is this assertion? Ezekiel 2v2 reads;
“And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet...”
Also in Revelations 4:1-2, we read;
“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit”
Furthermore Malachi 4:3 sheds more light on this subject of Rhema saying;
“But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings...”
Rhema is a lifter, catalyst and courier of destiny. Once it find its way into your life, it takes you up on its wings. All that you will ever require to fulfil your God-ordained destiny are on the wings of Rhema. It gives speed to them that contact it. In John 6, Jesus’ disciples were travelling in a ship when they were slowed down by a storm; Jesus decided to join them and that He did by walking on the boisterous sea to meet them. They were afraid when they first saw Him thinking it was a ghost, and then He said;
“...It is I; be not afraid. Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went” John 6:20-21
Hence, Jesus is the revealed word of God because John 1:14 says;
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth”
You notice the Old Testament Prophet make statements such as “And the word of the LORD came to saying ...” The word of God is still in the business of coming to individuals today like ever before but this days by the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is the custodian of Rhema, He is a personality without a physical body.
YOU ARE BLESSED.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
