    Bro. Jeff it is becoming a habit, that I go to your blog page everyday to see what is next. Today I actually read the posts before reading the blog. I love one of the scriptures you used about the wilderness. It just happens I was over on the backside of our land the Lord gave us when I got saved. My wife said my husband left to walk the dogs and another man came back.
    I believe God speaks to us about our sin, and gives us total insight into his Word. The Word is spirit and I have told other people you need to be in the Spirit to understand the full Word. Pray and Pray. Well enuff said I am looking forward to the next blog. God Bless.

      Ricky, what an encouraging salvation testimony, brother. Your insight about the Word of God and the Spirit of God are spot-on.

    Hi Jeff, thank you for this, especially the distinction between logos and rhema – this is the first time I’ve heard this and I look forward to studying more. While in seminary years ago, when studying the inspiration and sufficiency of scripture, I memorized Hebrews 1:1-2. This passage was interpreted to discourage listening to anything other than what is written in Scripture. (My paraphrase of the seminary’s teaching). Ironically, even as I write this sentence, I think about the books written by professors at that seminary, or the classes themselves… were those not examples of rhema? Hermeneutics pointed to the word “but” at the beginning of verse 2 and concluded that speaking to us “by His Son” is in contrast to other means discussed in verse 1. And then somehow that translated into “only read your Bible.” Fast forward to today, and I am actively seeking to better understand the work of the Holy Spirit today, and I’m certain that it includes rhema but I don’t quite know how to live in that yet. (BTW I know it when I see it and it was happening in your church and at IHOP when I visited a couple of weeks ago). Lastly, I tie this all together by mentioning how key NT Wright has been in my understanding of what God is doing. In contrast to what I was taught growing up (ask Jesus into your heart and then you’ll go to heaven someday as a spirit creature, spend the rest of your life convincing others to make the same declaration), NT Wright tears down this false teaching and replaces it with a more robust, more (I believe) correct theology of what happened on the cross AND our final destination.
    All this to say thank you for what you are doing. And thanks to Amy for her teaching when I visited!
