Jesus instructed us to have faith in God. Then He gave us an example of what faith is.
Mark 11:22-24 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, 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. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
I have heard so many Christian songs that say something like, “If God does not move the mountain I will still trust in Him!”
When I hear these types of songs I wonder who they are singing about.
The Jesus I know always, without fail, moves the mountain for me. Notice in this passage of scripture that Jesus instructs us to speak to the mountain.
If you pray and ask God to move the mountain I assure you it will not move. You are wasting your breath. I have heard many, over the years; say something like, “If God does not intervene they are going to die!” And 99.9 percent of the time, God does not intervene and they die.
You see, God has already intervened. He intervened on the cross and purchased eternal salvation, which includes healing from all sickness, disease, and pain, for everyone who believes. He has already given the believer complete authority and dominion to rule and reign on this earth.
Jesus has already purchased our redemption on the cross. He has already reconciled us to God. He has redeemed us from all sin, therefore, no one can condemn us for Jesus’ blood justifies us before God.
He has redeemed us from the Curse of the Law, therefore, no one can judge us for by Jesus’ stripes we were healed. Jesus’ shed blood forgives us of all ours sins and His broken body heals us of all our sicknesses/diseases and pains.
These provisions have already been purchased for us and are now available to us.
When a mountain of condemnation, depression, oppression, a sense of unworthiness, etc. stands in our way we are instructed to speak to that mountain the word of God that proclaims our redemption from all sin.
When the devil comes to our minds with thoughts telling us we are bad, evil, a loser, not worthy, etc. we are instructed to resist those thoughts with God’s word that proclaims we have been forever forgiven and made righteous in God sight.
We are the sons of God, the heirs of God, and accepted by God. We have been washed in Jesus’ blood, sanctified, justified, and gloried in Christ Jesus our Lord. If you believe that you have been justified by Jesus’ blood and then speak that truth to the mountain (storm) of condemnation that is standing in your way, that mountain will move.
You must know the truth and then the truth will make you free.
When a mountain of sickness, disease, and pain stands in your way you are instructed to speak to that mountain the truth of your redemption from the entire curse of the Law. Jesus paid the debt in full for your sin. He bore the judgment for your sin and redeemed you from all judgment for sin. All sickness, disease, and pain are judgment for sin. Jesus paid the debt for your sin, therefore, no judgment for sin has a legal right to afflict you. You have been redeemed from all sickness, disease and pain.
This is the truth concerning your redemption in Christ. When a mountain (storm) of sickness, disease, or pain stands in your way, speak the truth of your redemption to the mountain. If you believe that Jesus redeemed you from the Curse of the Law, and if you believe that Jesus bore your sicknesses, diseases, and pain in your heart and you speak these truths to the mountain, it will move. God will not move the mountain until you speak the truth of His word to the mountain. If the mountain does not move it is because you either do not know the truth or you do not believe the truth.
Jesus told His disciples, “I give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind on this earth God will bind in heaven and whatever you loose on earth God will loose in Heaven.”
If you don’t bind it, God won’t bind it. If you don’t lose it, God won’t lose it. You are the Body of Jesus Christ. Jesus rules and has the dominion over all things but, He can only rule on this earth through a human body. His Spirit lives in you.
Satan is the god of this world. He is your adversary. Jesus stripped him of his power and gave you (the church) complete power and dominion over him. However, he is a thief and a murderer.
If you do not know who he is or how his kingdom of darkness operates, he will illegally wreak havoc in your life. He will even kill you and your family. You must put on the whole armor of God so that you can stand against him. If you have a mountain of condemnation or sickness in your life, it is there illegally. All you have to do is speak the truth of your redemption in Christ to the mountain and it will move, and it will move every time. If you ask God to move the mountain He will not move it. If you speak to the mountain and believe the truth that you speak the mountain will move. It is not up to God to move the mountain, it is completely, one hundred percent, up to you whether or not your mountain moves out of your life.
