THE SWORD IN YOUR MOUTH 2

” And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” Ephesians 6:17 (NKJV)
 
In our earlier discussion we looked at the Word of God as the Logos of God.
I explained that, LOGOS (which is a Greek word for WORD) denotes, the expression of thoughts, not a mere name of an object. Logos embodies conception or idea, saying or statement. Logos depicts the person of the Word as well.
There are two key words in the Bible translated as Word — Logos and Rhema.
There are times people think LOGOS is just the written Word and refer to RHĒMA as the SPOKEN WORD.
Understand that, Logos as the expression of divine thoughts, could be both a written word or a spoken word.
Thoughts are not only expressed through writings, but also through speech.
Thus, Logos is both the written and the spoken word.
On the other hand, Rhēma is simply the utterance of a specific personal Word of God in the now to an individual or a collective group of people addressing a present situation.
Whiles Logos is the objective word of God, Rhēma is the subjective Word for the now.
It is through the logos one can access 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 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.
The sword of the Word is activated when spoken or declared. Therefore the Word of God is only seen as a sword, when it issues out of your MOUTH!
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)
 
This portrait of God’s word truly enlightens the heart.
We see here that 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 fully of power. It’s effectively operative with fresh energy. It has the ability to quicken you unto an effective living.
And then it gives another heart piercing illustration of the Word:
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 two-edged sword.
In the original Greek, Di means two and stomo meaning 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.
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 the speaking of His Word!
 
“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 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)
 
OH GLORY TO GOD…
Read this also from the MESSAGE BIBLE:
 
” He gave me 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.
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!
Hallelujah.
 
DIG DEEPER:
(Hebrews 4:12; Ephesians 6:17; Isaiah 49:2; Hosea 6:5; Revelation 1:16).
 
WE PRAY:
– That we will take hold of every rhema word we will receive.
 
BIBLE READING
Day 109: 1 Kings 13
 
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!!!

It is so amazing to know that Logos is not just the written word and rhema is not the spoken word of God.
Logos is both the written and spoken word and rhema is the particular word of God for a situation or circumstance.
I have learnt that to get light from the rhema, I must first fellowship with the word either spoken or written.

I learnt that my mouth is a deadly weapon or sword that can penetrate soul and spirit.
I can shape or design my life and future with the word of God.
The word of God is able to cut through every situation
My words are like and quiver the Lord uses to make mighty exploits.
My words can also give life to situations.
I breathe the word of. God over every situation.
I bring the life of Christ in. every circumstance.
