Moving Mountains in Your Life

by John and Ruth Greene

mountain cast into seaCan you imagine an enormous mountain being uprooted and thrown into the sea? Many have wondered about the statement that Yahshua [Jesus] made in Matthew 21. When you believe and do not doubt, you can “move mountains.”  Perhaps we should say that mountains are moved for you. After all, this is not some kind of magic where you engage in whimsical mountain moving. Yahshua [Jesus] was making a strong statement about trust in YHWH. Trust is a result of your belief. What kind of mountains in life do you face? Have you talked to your Heavenly Father about them? Have you been blessed to experience a miracle through trust? (Matthew 21:18-22; Mark 9:23, 11:20-26; Luke 1:37, 17:6, 8:27; “Disciple: Learning to Live in Trust“; “Disciple: Where Do You Place Your Trust?“; “Abiding in Trust“; “Trust YHWH, Not World Leaders“)

There is also another matter that is often overlooked in what Yahshua [Jesus] said. He said you will be able to do what He did with the fig tree. What did Yahshua [Jesus] do? By the spoken word, he caused that barren fig tree to whither away. First, through your active trust and prayer, spiritual barrenness is banished. What doesn’t bear fruit for YHWH’s Kingdom is eliminated or ‘cursed.’ In the language of old Israel, the mountain of sin is cleansed in the great basin of the temple court. Yahshua [Jesus] emphasizes the power of your speech when the Holy Spirit resides in you as you operate in Elohim’s [YHWH] truth. You are cleansed over time, becoming a new man in Messiah. Through prayer, speaking and conducting yourself in line with Bible truth you are able to bear fruit for YHWH’s Kingdom. Yahshua [Jesus] is your example. By following the example of your Savior, every sanctified disciple of the Messiah is cleansed in the power of the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 5:26; John 15:5-10; Matthew 13:31; Mark 4:31-32)

“And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” – Matthew 21:22, NKJV

Note that when a mountain of difficulty is thrown into the sea, consider that sea as the sea of mankind. (Revelation 8:8; Matthew 17:20) When rebellious man creates a problem for YHWH’s santified people, YHWH cuts down the mountain and turns it back to those that created the problem. Your Heavenly Father simply wants you to speak with Him and act in harmony with your request. Of course, trust in the Father is not a blank check to get what you want. He doesn’t grant requests that don’t line up with His Will. The stronger your trust in YHWH and the word of Messiah, the more that you abide as a new man in Messiah, the more likely that your prayers will be in harmony with Elohim’s Will. (“Disciple: Live Your Belief“; “Life Healing and Belief“; “How YHWH Marks His People“)

outside the boxThe kind of prayer that moves mountains is prayer for YHWH’s Kingdom. Just as YHWH will move mountains, He will answer the prayers of His anointed people. How will He do this? Rest assured that your miracle, whether small or large, isn’t often likely to happen by what you imagine, but in a way that is “outside the box.” This is certainly our experience. Our experience also shows that moving that mountain in your life is likely to require or at least result in some spiritual growth on your part as well. He justifies your trust and when you see the results, your spiritual commitment grows. Your Father wants you to believe without doubting, giving the means to Him. He wants to provide for you and the needs of His people though His power. Father’s power in these matters of prayer is not a result of a positive mental attitude as the world says, but on these conditions:

You must be a sanctified believer.
You must not hold a grudge against another person.
You must not pray with selfish motives.
Your request must be for the good of Elohim’s Kingdom.

To pray effectively you need trust in YHWH rather than faith in the object of your prayer. When you focus only on your request, you will be left with nothing if your request is refused. (Mark 14:36) Personal prayers are often motivated by personal interests and desires. Yahshua [Jesus] prayed with Elohim’s Kingdom in mind and disciples of the Messiah must have the same mindset. You can see how important it is that your life is focused on YHWH’s Will instead of your own apart from Him. (“Prayer and Your Faith“; “The Power of Prayer Depends On You“; “Prayer & Life in Messiah“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
