The Rhema Word: Its Meaning, Misuse and Purpose
Many of my ebooks and audiobooks are free so I can bless as many people as possible. This one represents about 60 hours work for both the ebook and audiobook. If you appreciate it and want to donate to my writing and narration work you can do so in one of three ways: 1. If you're in the USA or UK, you can donate here: https://cash.app/Fraspay Or 2. buy the book or paperback on Amazon and post a short review as it will increase visibility and hopefully sales too. Or email me at email@example.com (my publishing email address). Thank you.
There is some confusion about the Greek words logos and rhema & what they mean & how they are used in the New Testament. This short book examines the biblical meanings of both words. References are below.
By reading this book you will:
1. Better understand the differences between the two words.
2. Consider numerous examples of logos and rhema being used in the NT.
3. Appreciate the importance of context when it comes to the meaning of words.
4. Distinguish between illumination & receiving a revelation.
5. Consider some other images that may better serve to explain the amazing ways that God speaks to people.
