THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT 3



“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”

Ephesians 6:17 (KJV)



After a soldier has geared up for battle, he finally picks up his sword for war.

We have seen from the previous post that, the sword of the Spirit, is the Word of God in your mouth.

Until the word is declared or vocalized it is not yet used as a sword.

The belt of truth is not the same as the Sword of the Spirit.

Though they are both in direct connection to the Word of God these two words reveal two different aspects and functions of the Word of God.

The Belt of Truth points directly to the person and personality of the Word. It addresses the reality substance of the Word of God.

The Sword of the Spirit doesn’t necessarily point to the substance and essence of the Word; it focuses on the active workings of the Word. The Sword of the Spirit, reveals the word as an instrument and not as a person.

There are two key words in the Bible translated as “Word”:

1. Logos
2. Rhema

LOGOS is the expression of divine thoughts, and thoughts are expressed by writing or speaking. So both the written word and the spoken word can be referred to as Logos.
 
On the other hand, Rhēma is simply the utterance of a specific personal Word of God to an individual or a collective group of people addressing a present situation, to cause an effective change or transformation.

While Logos is the objective word of God; Rhēma is the subjective Word for the now.

It is through the Logos one can access the Rhēma (the specific personal word of God for the now).

Without the Logos of God, one cannot receive the Rhēma word.
Rhēma is hewn out of your spirit through the meditation of the Logos of God.

What you declare or vocalize (the Greek word is hāgāh) is the Rhēma.

Rhēma is not merely articulating a scripture you have memorized. It is declaring the revelation of the Word.

It is that vocalized word (rhēma) Paul, the apostle, referred to as the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT!
 
“…And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17 (TPT).

Until you meditate on the scriptures to handle divine revelation to avow, the scriptures will not be useful weapons.

Look at this closely:
 
“For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating as far as the division of the soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 (Amplified Bible)
 
Get this, the Word of God is not merely a historical writing which has no relevance in our day.

Peter, the apostle, says it abides forever. (1 Peter 1:23).

The Word of God is living, active and full of power. It’s effectively operative with fresh energy. It has the ability to quicken you unto an effective living.

The Word of God is not only sharp; IT IS SHARPER than any two-edged sword.
The expression any two-edged sword is from the Greek;

“DISTOMOS MACHAIRA”

The Greek word distomos, has a greater meaning than just a two-edged sword.
In the original Greek, Di means two and stomo means mouth. So, in other words, distomos means a two-mouthed sword.

God declaring the Word out of His mouth is as a cutting-edge of a weapon in operation.

I have already explained that mouth, in Greek, is “stoma”, which means the front or edge of a weapon.

Beloved your mouth is also a weapon.

The Word in your mouth is as a razor of a deadly dagger which cuts deep into every matter.

God’s Word spoken by Him and written down is one sharp side of the dagger, and the other sharp side of the deadly dagger is when you speak the revelation of His Word in your situation.
 
“He held seven stars in his right hand, and a sharp two-edged sword came from his mouth. And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance.” Revelation 1:16 (NLT)

God’s word spoken out of your mouth by revelation is backed and infused by divine light and energy!

 “He made my words of judgment as sharp as a sword. He has hidden me in the shadow of his hand. I am like a sharp arrow in his quiver.” Isaiah 49:2 (NLT)

A word soaked and saturated by divine understanding is sharper than a double-edged dagger which has the ability to cause changes.

OH, GLORY TO GOD!

Read this also from the MESSAGE BIBLE:
 
“He gave me a speech that would cut and penetrate. He kept his hand on me to protect me. He made me his straight arrow and hid me in his quiver.” Isaiah 49:2 (MSG).

Have you now seen why you don’t have to keep quiet?

God wants you to be saturated and soaked with His Word, and that you can handle the personal Word for warfare.

This is why you must make it a priority to read and meditate on both the “Dig Deeper scriptures” and the “BIBLE READING PLAN”.

Don’t keep quiet!
Declare the RHĒMA OF GOD IN THAT SITUATION!!

THE WORD OF GOD IS A SWORD IN YOUR MOUTH SPEAK THE WORD AND NOT YOUR FEARS!

It doesn’t matter the arrows or attacks of the enemy, with the Spirit-word in your mouth, you can cause double-edged damage to his demonic operations.

Take hold of the Word of God through meditation and wage war with it!

Hallelujah.

DIG DEEPER
(Isaiah 49:2; Hebrews 4:12; Revelation 1:16; 2:16; 19:15; Deuteronomy 33:29)
 
WE PRAY
That we will take hold of every rhema word we will receive.
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2024
Psalm 18 – 21
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– God’s word spoken out of my mouth by revelation is backed and infused by divine energy.
 
– I speak the word at all times.
 
– I don’t walk in confusion or fear because I have rhema for every situation.
 
– The word of God spoken out of my mouth is sharper than any two edged word.
 
– When I speak the word (rhema) things happen.
 
– I am seasoned by the word.
 
OH Hallelujah, GLORY TO GOD!!!

Yes! The speaking forth of the word (the rhema) which is conceived from the logos is putting to work the operative force of the word of God.

I’m so much blessed by this episode. The writings are filled with life. I can’t stop making divine utterances!!

Thank you Lord for your Word

The spoken Word is for defending and offending. The spoken word is what makes the difference. If you speak the word( rhema) over every thing then you are actively using the sword of the Spirit and will see the effective working of the Word.
Could this be the reason people say the word does not work, because they speak logos and not rhema?

I speak the word over all things and to every challenge.
The Lord speak so do I
