There are three types of “the Word.” There is the graphé, logas, and the rheima. The graphé is the the written word, the actual bible. The logas is the meaning derived from the graphé. And the rheima is the speaking of the logas. In Jesus’s temptation by the Devil he said, “It is written…” and the Devil left after the third time that Jesus said that. The rheima is a very sharp sword that the Spirit uses. The greek meaning for sword is “dagger.” It was used for the up close and personal fighting. Notice that it is the only weapon that we have because it is the only weapon we need. It is the only weapon that God uses.
