Faith that Moves Mountains
12 Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. 13 And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.”
And His disciples heard it.
The Lesson of the Withered Fig Tree
20 Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”
22 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.
Have the God kind of Faith… Not just faith in God but the God Kind of Faith
The God kind of Faith Says… MOVE!!!
Fear talks about how immovable mountains are,
Faith speaks to those mountains and they move!
Do you talk about your sickness or to your sickness? Do you talk about your debt or to your debt?
A mountain is anything that defies you and denies you the access to move forward in your life and your purpose.
BY faith stop talking about it and start speaking to it…
Faith doesn’t deny it’s not there… Faith denies it the right to stay there!
Real bible Faith starts saying THANK YOU for what you believed you received instead of continually asking like God is not responding to your prayers and your faith.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
1 Cor. 4:13 NKJV
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,”[we also believe and therefore speak…
Faith is a Fact… an Act (without action it’s dead, dormant, without purpose)
Before it’s an act it’s a WORD… A spoken word!
Centurion soldier with sick servant… said to Jesus “You don’t even have to come to my house, SPEAK the WORD only and my servant will be healed!” Jesus said “I haven’t SEEN this great of FAITH in all of ISRAEL!
Under Authority… Words have weight or authority… but that authority is only recognized when you come under authority!
WORDS are Spirit Containers that carry FAITH or FEAR, LIFE or DEATH.
What’s in YOUR WORDS?
John 6:63 Jesus said His WORDS are SPIRIT and LIFE. The more you hear the more you believe.
How much are you FEEDING your FAITH? It comes by HEARING and HEARING by the WORD of GOD.
Mark 11:25-26 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
Offense is the match, and un-forgiveness the fuel
that will burn your own house down.
Un-forgiveness is one of the biggest mountains and obstacles that will ever block you from reaching your destiny. Only way to MOVE it is with your FAITH!
