MOUNTAIN, JUMP INTO THE SEA!!!!!!!!!
Let me start this blog by saying this is a personal revelation from the Lord. It is not based on historical accuracy or me interpreting Scripture, rather letting you in on how God spoke to me about faith, moving mountains, and a mission.
Recently I read Mark 11:22-23, and was told that no one in history has EVER seen a mountain move. So what you’re saying is that Jesus was telling us all that we don’t have faith even the size of a mustard seed? You’re telling me that we’re all full of doubt and unbelief so as to not see such impossible things happen? I thought we were going to do greater things?!?!
Faith…a mysterious word that we all desire & long to have. “Faith is being sure of the things we hope for and know that something is real even if we do not see it.” Faith is substance of things hoped for. It is evidence of things not seen. “We walk by faith, not by sight.”
We walk on water…the translucent unseen realm that the world (gravity) says is impossible.
Then a previous revelation I had a few nights before, came to me. The faith chapter…Hebrews 11. By faith…we understand…By faith…he brought a sacrifice…By faith…he skipped death.
I began to read each verse replacing the word “faith” with “God”…By God…we understand…By God…he brought a sacrifice…By God…he skipped death.
He is the mustard seed!
“Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” John 12:24
When we lack faith, we lack God’s Spirit. It’s no longer about how much faith do I have, leaving it all on me and what I can do to gain or work for it, but relying on if am I filled by the Holy Spirit. Do I have enough of Him in my life? He is the evidence. He is real even if we don’t see Him. He is the substance of what we hope for. He is what we walk by.
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 1 John 5:4 >>Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
‘Without Jesus it is impossible to please God.’
Now lets get to the overly exciting craziness of this blog! So Jesus, is the mustard seed of faith that is vital to move mountains but clearly He wasn’t speaking literally. I asked Him, “so what mountain are you speaking of?” “I’m talking about Mount Zion, the mountain of heaven, and whoever has the faith of a mustard seed (Me), can say to that mountain move from here (heaven) to there (earth) and it will move.” Jesus was all about letting heaven come to earth and He longs for us to do the same!
So, I heard the voice of the Lord…but I needed confirmation via the Word of the Lord. The next day my Bible reading plan actually skipped back a few days (and I didn’t even notice). There it was, in Hebrews 12: 18-19 “For you have not come as did the Israelites in the wilderness to a material mountain that can be touched, a mountain that is ablaze with fire, and to gloom and darkness and a raging storm, and to the blast of a trumpet and a voice whose words make the listeners beg that nothing more be said to them. But rather, you have come to Mount Zion, even to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless multitudes of angels in festal gathering.”
Our Father, who is in heaven
Hallowed be Your name
Your kingdom come, Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
