RHEMA: DO WHAT GOD TOLD ME TO DO

   RHEMA: DO WHAT GOD TOLD ME TO DO  ISAIAH 2:2  Preface: The vision of Rhema, as originally given, was entrusted to be something different, something fresh, something that did not exist. We started well, though highly criticized, however I acquiesced at times to the status quo, allowing too many things to slide, causing us to veer slightly off the intended path, opting for a more church-religious path. Using...

The text records the initial sign of their infilling as the act of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. The traditional interpretation is that they spoke in an unknown language, and this should be the experience of every believer. In...

   THE RIGHT VIEW OF THE DEVIL Preface: As we conclude this series lets take a closer look at the chief antagonist of God and humanity, the devil. Over the years there have been many images and presentations made of the devil. Fanciful images of a long-tailed creature with a red pitchfork or an angelic creature with horns, these caricatures are the product of our imaginations and not the Scriptures. In Part 3 we will take...
