#116 - So Now What?

Having known that we have died, been buried and raised alive again in Christ, what does it mean for us as believers?  Just like a caterpillar has metamorphosed into a butterfly, Rev Reuben explains also that the old has passed away, and we are now new creations.  We need to then focus our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.



#115 - Why Jesus Rose?

We all know why Jesus had to die for us -- He became the substitutionary sacrifice for our sin.  But do we know why Jesus rose?  Listen to how Rev Reuben explain from various portions of scripture the victory we now have as a result of Jesus' resurrection from the dead.




#114 - Faith Speaks

Mk 11:22-23


When God created the heavens and the earth, He spoke and the universe came into being.  God has created mankind in His image, and as a result there is also power in our words.  Prov 18:21 tells us that life and death is in the power of our tongue -- we either speak words of life or words of destruction.

One of the elements of faith is to speak forth what we believe God's word and will for us is.  In Rom 4:17, we read how God changed Abram's name to Abraham (which means father of many).  At that point in time, God's promise of Isaac was yet to be.  But by telling others he was Abraham (and having others refer to him as Abraham), he was declaring and proclaiming something that was not yet as though it had already happened.  By doing so, what was promised in the spiritual realm became manifested in the physical.

Listen to Rev Reuben as he cites the examples of Caleb, Elijah and the woman with the issue of blood who activated their faith by speaking in alignment with the word, the will and the promises of God, and what they declared and believed came to pass as a result.  Likewise, we can confess (in Greek -- "homologeo", which means to speak the same thing as what God's Word says) into our current situation (be it in terms of illness, lack, a wayward child, etc) and expect that situation to turn around (in terms of health, prosperity and restoration) to be in line with what God has promised us in His Word.
