Rehma's Meaning

Why did our ministry take the name of Rehma (hray’ mah)? 

In Greek, "Rhema" (hray’ mah) translates to "word" or "saying." It's often used in theological contexts to refer to a spoken word or utterance, particularly in Christian theology where it can be associated with the spoken or revealed Word of God, as distinguished from the written Word (logos). Rhema is used to emphasize the spoken expression or revelation of a specific message or truth.

Rhema appears 70 times in the New Testament and its first usage is found in Matthew 4:4 “…Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word (Rhema) that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” 

Pentecostal Theologians view Rhema as the Holy Spirit’s ‘voice” that guides a believer; offers revelation.  When the logos comes alive in you - it is when the Word speaks directly to your situation. 

Additional examples of the word's use, include:

“If ye abide in me, and my words (Rhema) abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7)

 “…If ye continue in my word (Rhema), then are ye my disciples indeed.” (John 8:31)
