Living By Faith

WHOSOEVER SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER

If ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. (Matthew 21:21)

“There are no immovable mountains.” –Mark Hankins

Jesus told you to speak to the mountain. The mountain has been speaking to you, telling you how big it is, how long it has been there, and that it is impossible to move. You need to do some speaking to that mountain! God is holding you responsible to “frame your world” with His Word. The devil would like to frame your world with doubt, fear, depression, sickness, and poverty. The Word of God will put him on the run. We can draw five simple conclusions from Mark 11:23:

1.  If it were God’s will for the mountain to be there, Jesus would not have told you to move it.

2.  If you only knew what was on the other side of your mountain, you would move it.

3.  If it is there, you can move it. There is no mountain in the sphere of your life that you cannot move.

4. Your mountain needs to hear your voice.

5.  If what you have in life was completely up to God, Jesus never would have said Mark 11:23.

Confession: With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.  (Matthew 19:26)

THE VOICE OF FAITH

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)

“The Word spoken to you must be spoken through you.” –Mark Hankins

Faith always comes with a sound, a voice, a word. The visible was made from the invisible. Things that are seen are not made of things that can be seen. The unseen is more powerful than the seen. This is why we walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).

Faith is the substance from which everything has been or will be made. The Cotton Patch translation of Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the turning of dreams into deeds; it is betting your life on unseen realities.”

Everything responds to the voice of faith. The voice of faith frames our world and is hiding in the quarks of every particle of matter. The spirit of faith contains the building blocks of the will of God in our lives. All the redemptive rights and privileges that belong to us in Christ must be appropriated by faith. The authority of the believer is released through words that move mountains and make demons flee!

Confession:Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title-deed) of the things [we] hope for,being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality – faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses. (Hebrews 11:1 | AMP)

IF THERE IS A MOUNTAIN IN YOUR WAY, “QUARK IT”

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (Genesis 1:3)

“The reason words will move a mountain is because mountains are made by words.” –Mark Hankins

The Time Magazine issue of February 19, 1996, had an article that caught my attention. The article, “What’s Hiding in the Quarks,” tells about the discovery of quarks that was made at the giant Tevatron accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago. 

Physicists coined the term, “Quarks” in 1994 to describe what they thought were the tiniest, most fundamental building blocks of matter. After further study, the scientists discovered that quarks may not be the most basic units of matter after all! 

What are quarks made of?  Many scientists are of the opinion that quarks are made of sound waves. I believe that is correct because it confirms what the Bible teaches. In Genesis, the phrase “And God said” is repeated over and over again. “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth…For He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.” (Psalm 33:6-9)

Confession:  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God. (Hebrews 11:3)

YOUR VOICE IS YOUR ADDRESS IN THE SPIRIT

Thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. (Daniel10:12)

“The reason the majority of Christians are weak, though they are earnest, is because they have never dared to make a bold confession of what they are in Christ.” –E.W. Kenyon

What is it about your voice that is so important? Scientists tell us that the voiceprint is just as accurate in determining an individual’s identity as his fingerprint. In certain high-security situations, a person must speak, and his voice must be recognized before clearance is given. 

It doesn’t take long for your voice to reach heaven and enter the ears of Almighty God, who is the source of your authority as a believer. Heaven responds to your voice. Not only does God respond to the voice of faith, but angels are also activated by your words. In Daniel 10, Daniel’s words brought the answer from heaven, and the angel came to exactly the right address!

If your voice moves heaven, you know it moves mountains. Lift up your voice with the voice of faith and move any mountain that is standing in the way of God’s best for your life!

Confession: In my distress I called upon the Lord and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations of the hills moved. (Psalm 18:6-7)

YOUR MOUNTAIN NEEDS TO HEAR YOUR VOICE

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed…he shall have whatsoever he saith.(Mark11:23)

“Any man may be changed by faith no matter how he may be fettered.” –Smith Wigglesworth

One day while I was praying and studying, the Holy Spirit began to give me a vision of the possibilities of some great, glorious, marvelous, and wonderful things that God had prepared for my life, but there were some “mountains” between God’s best blessings and me. He said, “If you knew what was on the other side of your mountain, you would move it!”

In Luke 17:6, Jesus uses the illustration of a “sycamine tree.” Someone once joked, “I have identified my problem, and I am sick of mine.” Sometimes things will stay around until you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, and you determine that things must change in your life. Mark 11:23 makes it clear that it is not up to God or someone else to deal with your situation, it’s up to you! Your mountain will obey you! Your mountain needs to hear your voice!

Confession: I speak to every mountain that has hindered supernatural increase in my life and command them to move. I am ready to receive God’s best blessings for me!
