UNDERSTANDING REVELATION AND RHEMA
I need to explain something that few understand in the body of Christ, even among the Charismatics who emphasis “the gifts of the Spirit.” Much of what is preached and taught in today’s Churches is from the “letter”, human understanding of The Word and not from The Spirit of THE WORD. The Holy Spirit alone gives us HIS revelation (spiritual understanding) of The Word of God. Scholarship, human intelligence is not Holy Spirit revelation. Men of great intellect and scholarship write and teach on many subjects about the Bible, but that does not mean it is revelation-God’s Spiritual Understanding=His Divine Knowledge of His Word.
Commentaries abound on what men believe or think the Bible says, yet when compared to the literal grammatical interpretation, all fail the test of proper hermeneutics =(proper Holy Spirit interpretation). Moreover, hermeneutics that does not depend upon The Holy Spirit for revelation is nothing but man’s opinion. The Word of God was given to men, inspired by God to the spirit of God in men to write it down in “books.” That is called “Divine inspiration.” Notice that it came from God to man, not from man to man. This is always the order of 'Divine' interpretation. Peter said The Word of God is not the private interpretation of man, meaning that The Word of God did not originate from man no matter how great an intellect he may be (II Peter 1:20-21).
Second, it is not enough to believe in the Divine inspiration of the Scriptures apart from Holy Spirit revelation. Unless The Holy Spirit imparts the revelation or understanding, it is nothing but a dead letter. This is the meaning of Paul’s comments in I Corinthians 2:10-16, and in another place, Paul sarcastically asked the Corinthians if The Word of God originated from them (I Corinthians 14:36).
Holy Spirit revelation is a lost doctrine in the body of Christ today and is replaced largely by intellectual scholarship= dead letter. Sadly, the saints do not know the difference. Likewise, “emotional” preaching and teaching…(Hyper-grace) (The make me feel good motivational teaching) has supplanted Inspired revelation and many saints are following these highly paid prosperity speakers. Truth is not founded upon either an intellectual or emotional presentation of the Word of God that often alters IT to make it more acceptable, palatable to the hearers, but upon God’s original intent, to make us more holy and righteous in our minds=thinking and imagination, character and conducts, etc. The saints develop a holy walk by conviction and repentance of sin sometimes accompanied by chastening, even severe chastening. The milk toast or Hyper-grace = make me feel good messages coming from pulpits and seminars today do not challenge the saints to live TRULY holy and Godly lives in this Godless world.
In addition, being unable to understand Holy Spirit revelation, or how to attain Holy Spirit revelation, many saints do not live by “rhema faith.” What do I mean by rhema faith? The Greek word “rhema,” which is the word used in Romans 10:17 and Ephesians 6:17 for the “Word of God” means “personalised revelation,” that is, what God is saying through His Word today from the written Word to our reborn spirits personally. Without personalised rhema there can be no exercising of real faith! Most Christians live by logos faith. Logos is the written Word of God – the letter of the Word written on the pages of the Bible, which is understood by their reasoning intellect and exercised by their mental faith and their human abilities and resources. Until The Holy Spirit imparts HIS spiritual knowledge and understanding to our reborn spirits IN HIM personally, we are living by the letter of the Word, our own intellectual and emotional understanding of The written or spoken Word and not by GODS revelation to our Spirit of faith that is being raised and strengthened by His Holy Spirit regarding His impartation of His SPECIFIC Word to us supernaturally. If God’s Word is SPIRIT, THIS MEAN, IT HAS THE SUBLIME ABILITY TO QUICKEN AND DEVELOP US SPIRITUALLY…..IT HAS HIS DIVINE ABILITY TO DEVELOP HIS SUPERNATURAL SPIRITUAL FORCE WITHIN OUR HEARTS CALLED FAITH. In the book of John 6:63, that Scripture declares, ‘My Word is Spirit and Life.’ His Divine Essence called FAITH is being developed within our hearts each time we BELIEVE and ACT on=OBEY His Word to us personally.
How Does Rhema Work? This is something that most do not understand including so-called Bible scholars? The Lord may speak from an Old or New Testament Scripture, but the original meaning and purpose was for a different time and to a different people [direct revelation] yet giving an application for our present time.
All of The messages that I send out are Inspired By The Holy Spirit to My spirit meaning, spoken to me in my heart from much study to gain detail understanding. All this is attuned in THE PRAYER ROOM....IN MY HEART....
