Mountain moving Faith by Jarrod Davidoff September 29, 2019
I am going to be sharing with you 3 steps for ensure that your mountain in your life is removed
MARK 11:12-14 (NKJV)
12 Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He (JESUS) 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 saidt o it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.”And His disciples heard it.
- (note that Jesus spoke-He decreed something. The bible says in Job 22:8 You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.) There is power in confessing the Word of God over your situation.
Mark 11:20-21 (NKJV)
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.”
-JESUS DIDN’T NEED TO LOOK, as far as he was concerned it was dead the moment he spoke to it
Mark 11:22-24 (NKJV) 22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.(Have the God kind of faith, Have faith like God) 23 For assuredly, I say to you (THAT’S US TODAY, RIGHT HERE AND NOW, SO PLEASE LISTEN UP), 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 (what are those things you asking for) 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 (YOU DON’T RECEIVE THEM WHEN THEY COME, YOU RECEIVE THEM BY FAITH NOW. NOW FAITH IS ).
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance (title deed) of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.(say is mentioned 3 times and ask once)
Say your friend in Australia sends a package. The moment they put your name on it and post it, it’s yours. God put your name on a package. It’s called, healed, blessed, successful, happy, joyful, rich, kind, at peace.
People don’t like this one
SPECIAL CREDIT CARD: Linked to the account of the richest man in the world who says you can spend up to $10 million a day. How much faith would you have in the ability of that card. I BELIEVE BROTHER. You believe based on the wealth of the person backing that card and on their integrity to you saying you can use it.
*Just one condition. You have to be nice to people and can’t get offended or I’ll need to take the card back.
Mark 11:25 (NKJV) 25 “And(a conjunction/a condition) 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.”
1. HAVE FAITH IN GOD
Mark 11:22 (NKJV) Have faith in God
The only way you going to have this God kind of faith /faith like God/ is by spending time with Him in prayer and the Word.
HOW DO WE GET THIS FAITH?
Jude 1:20 (NKJV) Build yourself up in your most holy faith praying in the spirit
Romans 10:17 (NKJV) Faith comes by hearing, hearing…..
We need to open the Bible and see what the promises of God are for me. You need to know what your kingdom rights are and your kingdom inheritance is.
ROMANS 12:2 (NKJV) And do not be conformed (LIKE) to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
-In order to speak to your mountains to be removed you need to know God’s will from His Word and be convinced He wants you to be free and live in holiness
Daniel 11:32 (NKJV) …the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.
He wants to have deep relationship with you.
Spend time with Him
Faith is believing in the promises of God.
FAITH IS THE CURRENCY OF HEAVEN
We are not called to have faith in faith or faith in ourselves, but FAITH IN GOD.
All God’s promises are yes and amen.
He can be trusted with your life, your family, your carrer, ministry, marriage, family.
He loves you and wants the best for you and has the grandest plans for you.
It’s easy to have faith in God as He has proved Himself over and over again.
-He proved Himself to me as a Jewish boy of 20 by revealing Jesus to me.
-He healed my broken heart, gave me peace, love and joy
-He has proven Himself to me with my beautiful wife and boys
-He has proven Himself over the years every month and year -4 million souls saved
-Faithful in giving us an incredible DREAM TEAM here who serve at the church
-You wonderful members and co-laborers for Christ
AND WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR ME AND CONTINUES TO DO HE WILL DO FOR YOU
What is faith?
-The disciples didn’t believe until they saw the fig tree dead
Romans 12:17 (NKJV) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
*In Greek: Continuous context …..hearing….hearing….hearing….hearing
Great miracles in our crusades: blind eyes see, cripples walk, deaf hear, cancers healed…
Joshua 1:8 (NKJV) 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success
Romans 12:2 (NKJV) 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove whatisthat good and acceptable and perfect will of God
2. HOW DO I RELEASE MY FAITH? SPEAK TO YOUR MOUNTAIN
You speak to it from a place revelation.
Do you have a mountain in your life? Sickness, disease, aches, pains, lousy spouse , a rebellious teenager
depression, oppressions, a mountain of debt
Mark 11:23 (NKJV) Whoever (THAT’S ME) says to this mountain
Not whoever prayeth< whoever sayeth
It worked in the life of Jesus. Jesus knew that when He spoke, something would happen.
1. HE SPOKE TO THE Fig Tree
Mark 11 14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.
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.”
-they didn’t see it fall over dead
JESUS FULFILLED THE 2 REQUIREMENTS
1. Jesus had an intimate relationship with His Father
2. He spoke to the Fig Tree with authority. He didn’t think about it again
2. HE SPOKE TO Lazarus to come forth-dead 3 days and stunk
John 1143 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
-had to say Lazerus as had so much faith ALL THE DEAD WOULD HAVE
3. Calming the storm
Mark 435 On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. 38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”
39 Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!”And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. 40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is itthat you have no faith?”[
PEOPLE THAT SPOKE IT
Mark 1046 Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. 47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
48 Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
49 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called.Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.”
50 And throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus.
51 So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”
52 Then Jesus said to him, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.”And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the road.
He had an intimate knowledge of Jesus from the accounts of miracles that He had heard Jesus was performing, so when Jesus was walking by He released His faith by asking Jesus to heal him
This is a great example of someone that used the faith that He had, without personally spending time and hours with Jesus.
You only need faith as small as a mustard seed. If you release that faith you will get your breakthrough.
2.Woman with issue of blood
Mark 5- 25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, 26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Himin the crowd and touched His garment. 28 For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”
29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in herbody that she was healed of the affliction. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?”
31 But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing. 33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth. 34 And He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well.Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
3. Centurion’s servant
Mathew 8 5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, 6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”
7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”
8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one,‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard it,He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!11 And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.12 But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, solet it be done for you.”And his servant was healed that same hour.
3 WE NEED TO FORGIVE
dad and mom
used and abused
They wronged you the first time, don’t give them the power to do it again by robbing you from your miracle
25 “And(a conjunction/ a condition)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.”
