Moving What Mountain?

With faith and prayer all things are possible. One of the most inspiring verses about the power of faith and prayer is:

“… 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 … whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” (Mark 11:23-24)

This universal spiritual principle can be used in all aspects of life, from small to large. We can use it to get a parking spot (actually on the streets of Jerusalem or Tel Aviv that can be quite a miracle). But there are mountains much more significant and prophetic than a parking space.

What did Yeshua mean when He said, “this” mountain? At the time He was standing in Jerusalem near the Temple “mount”. He was also in the midst of a confrontation with the religious leaders over the claim of His spiritual authority and about His cleansing the Temple.

Yeshua’s statement about the mountain is likely a reference to Zechariah 4:7,

“Who are you Great Mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain.”

This prophecy declared the removing of all obstacles before Zerubbabel as he worked to restore the kingdom of God in Jerusalem. That may be the ultimate meaning of Yeshua’s mountain-moving faith prayer: To remove all obstacles to the restoring of the kingdom of God in Jerusalem.

Isaiah 2:2-4 also refers to the kingdom of God as a mountain. Daniel 2:34-35, 44 refers to the great statue of the Antichrist kingdoms being destroyed in the end times by a supernatural rock that then turns into the mountain of the kingdom of God. Revelation 11:15 states that the last mystery of the plan of God is for the kingdoms of this world to become the kingdom of our Lord.

If we join our faith and prayer together, we can remove all the power of the Antichrist kingdom and see the kingdom of the Lord’s house established in our generation. Let’s all “move that mountain” together.
