John 1:1 In the beginning was the LOGOS (word), and the LOGOS(word) was with God, and the LOGOS(word) was God.
Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every RHEMA (word ) that proceeded (from moment to moment) out of the mouth of God.
The “logos” is the word of God given as an idea or a concept, usually in a written form.
Jesus is referred to as the logos word because He provides the idea or concept of who the invisible God is. Jesus, explains God to humanity.
The “rhema” is a personally spoken, “through the mouth of God to us” word, given to arbitrate a particular circumstance.
We’ve said at one time or another, “this scripture leaped out at me!” This is a rhema word.
Misunderstanding and ignorance of the differences between these two kinds of “words”, attributes to the weak state of the church, and can be your fine line between spiritual life and spiritual death.
Reading the Bible in English or Spanish you’d never know the difference between them, because both are translated as “word.”
The Strong’s number for the logos is 3056.

2Ti 2:15 Be diligent to show yourself approved unto God, a worker unashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
If knowing the difference between the logos and the rhema is a matter of life and death will you research it?
