Ezekiel 7:26 “They seek a vision from the prophet, while the law perishes from the priest and counsel from the elders.”
In the bible we have two ways that scripture is revealed to us. The Logos word is Gods word revealed through the written text. Line upon line, precept upon precept. The Rhema word is Gods inspired word, quickened to our hearts in a momentary encounter with the Holy Spirit, as we read the bible. Rhema has a prophetic nature to it. While God delights to quicken his Rhema word to us, unfortunately many of us are waiting for Gods prophetic word, whilst neglecting Gods logos word that is available to us everyday. Israel were guilty of the same thing, they neglected to hear the instruction of the law and the counsel from the elders overseeing them for the rush of the prophetic insight available to them through Gods mouthpieces. We need both Gods Logos and Rhema word in our lives. We live off the Logos and every now and then we encounter the Rhema. Don’t neglect one for the other.
