ARE YOU LETTING THE WORD WORK ?
Nearly 20 years ago, I heard a sister in Christ say, “LET THE WORD WORK”, I had never heard the statement before, although I don’t believe it was original, and it really witnessed to my heart, and over the last few years, I have come to appreciate the power, and uniqueness of the Word of God more than ever before. It is so interesting that there are 2 Greek words for Word, there is Logos which is usually understood to be the written word, and there is Rhema which is understood to be the living word, when the Holy Spirit quickens that Word to our hearts, and as Paul describes it, it becomes the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, Eph. 6:17 NKJV And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word (Rhema) of God; Paul also tells us the Rhema word produces faith in our heart, Rom.10:17 NKJV So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word (Rhema) of God.
The more we meditate and chew over the Word of God, God turns the light on, and illuminates the Word to us, and it comes so alive in our Spirit and awesome things take place in our lives.
In my N.T. reading this morning I read 2 Thess.3, and verse 1 NKJV spoke so clearly to me “Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run SWIFTLY and be glorified, just as it is with you,
AMP.N.T. FURTHERMORE, BRETHREN, do pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may speed on (spread rapidly and run its course) and be glorified (extolled) and triumph, even as [it has done] with you,
MESSAGE One more thing, friends: Pray for us. Pray that the Master’s Word will simply take off and race through the country to a groundswell of response, just as it did among you.
Please note Paul said PRAY, I strongly recommend we never open our Bibles until we have prayed first, so we have prepared our heart to receive that incorruptible seed (sperma) 1 Peter 1:23 NKJV having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, I sincerely believe that the incorruptible seed is the Rhema Word, that not only brought us into the Kingdom of God, but EVERY DAY if we prepare our hearts and meditate on the Word of God, we can receive the divine sperma, and spiritual conception takes place in our hearts and the Word of God WORKS in our lives.
So Paul asked the Thessalonian believers to pray that the WORD WOULD RUN SWIFTLY, I want to encourage you daily pray, that the Word will run swiftly in your life, so that we may be changed more and more into the Lord’s likeness especially as we see that day approaching when the Lord is returning for His Church that Paul describes in Eph. 5:27 NKJV hat He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
Brothers and Sisters in Christ, MAY WE LET THE WORD WORK AMEN.
