Jesus said to have faith in God. Then He said, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says (Mark 11:22-23). God’s word is alive and powerful. God’s power is in His word. His Spirit confirms His word with signs and wonders. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the power of God unto salvation (healing, deliverance, etc.). Our Christian faith is not in word only. It is not in the doctrines and commandments of men. Our faith is in the power of God. God’s word declares if you will believe His word in your heart and then speak His word with your mouth His power is activated and released into your life.
There are two immutable things that took place on the cross that is an anchor to our souls.
1. Jesus redeemed you from all sin. Jesus paid your debt for sin. Therefore God will never impute your sin to you. Therefore no one came ever condemn you. You cannot condemn the forgiven. Jesus was your sacrificial Lamb. He was your substitute. He traded places with you. He took your place as a sinner on the cross. He became sin. You take His place as a righteous son of God. You become righteous. You must renew your mind to this truth so that Satan cannot bring you under condemnation which will cause you to believe you are unworthy of God.
2. Jesus redeemed you from God’s judgment for sin. The judgment for sin is recorded in Deuteronomy 28:15-67. The judgment for sin is called the Curse of the Law. God will never judge you for sin. Jesus has already paid the debt for your sin in full. Jesus’ blood now justifies you before God. You cannot judge the forgiven. Jesus bore your judgment. All of God’s wrath was poured out on Jesus for your sins on the cross. Jesus bore the entire Curse of the Law. It broke Jesus’ body. You must renew your mind to this truth so that when Satan comes to afflict you with sickness, disease or pain you can stand on this truth and resist him steadfast in the faith.
These two truths of your redemption In Christ are the Rock on which we stand. The gates of hell cannot prevail against the believer who stands on these two truths. Jesus bore your sin and gave you His righteousness. He bore your judgment and gave you His abundant life. God places you In Christ. When God looks at you, He sees Jesus. Jesus represents you as your High Priest and Mediator before God. You no longer get what you deserve. Now you always get what Jesus deserves. Your new identity is now In Christ. If Satan can deceive you into getting your identity from your flesh he will condemn you and cause you to believe you are unworthy of God. You will lose your identity In Christ. You will render the cross as powerless. The truth of your redemption is what empowers you to possess your new identity in Christ and all the wonderful promises of God. When these truths are in your heart and you believe them they will overflow out of your mouth. When you speak to the mountains of sickness, disease, pain, poverty, condemnation, and fear with the redemptive word of God they will move out of your life.
I have spoken the thousands of mountains in my life and they move every time. For greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.
