Can Christians Move Mountains

When you have a mountain in your way and you pray the Word in faith, do you see faith as a command or demand to that mountain to move by the authority given us in Jesus Christ?

#-2-on the radio I heard several boats say we are in shut-out fog and just below the bridge waiting on you. Calls when to Cairo River base to get boats to help me, for I was surely going to hit the bridge. But now I begin to pray and command the fog to lift. Suddenly the fog lifts about 100 feet. I could see the bridge very well and slipped right under the green lighs as the fog came back down. As I continued on down the river. I heard many pilots say, never have I seen anything like that before.

#-1-This happened to me. One night while working as a pilot in Mississippi River. I rounded a bend just above Cairo, Illinois, just above a very narrow-old bridge on the upper Mississippi River. The night had been clear with a slight breeze blowing. Suddenly the bridge when out of sight for me and I realize it was fog rolling up the river. The boat was heavily loaded with 30 barges and impossible to stop with in the mile distance to the bridge in swift current.

Atheists want to take God out of the pledge of allegiance, but you can't take God out of a believer's heart or complete faith in God's Word to move mountains.

Be a mountain mover. lovable linda

Too many times we try to over spiritualize God's Word down to a point where it doesn't offend your intellect. God is an Awesome God and He sent His Word. It heals, it restores, it saves, it reconciles, it redeems, and it makes a way when there is no way. If you're ever in a bind, you won't be too proud to believe that God's Word means exactly what it says.

When sustained winds of over 100 mph are knocking your house around - do you have enough faith to speak to the storm and command it stop from tearing your house apart at the seams? Or command the winds to stop from pushing your car off the road into a ravine?
When you're really in a bind, do you remember that God's Word really is just that powerful and you can command storms and wind to stop and mountains to move?
When you're hard pressed, you'll remember.

Like a plane going down in flames, even unbelievers, atheists cry out to God to save them.
Why wait for a disaster, why not believe God's Word works before one hits?
---lovable_linda on 12/4/07

When Jesus said if we only had faith to speak to the mountain, He meant it. I will not overspiritualize this verse.

Science proves that sound has frequency.
God spoke the universe into existence.
Everything is made of sound and all matter has frequency.

If you were a coal miner trapped in a mountain with knowledge of the power of God's Word, I believe that coal miner could speak to the matter of the mountain and command it to move!
---lovable_linda on 12/4/07

Scientists have used meters to prove that Hebrew translation of the Word of God has very high frequencies of sounds.
God sent His Word and spoke His Word. I believe if you had enough faith in God's Word, you could speak to the mountain/matter and command it to move. If I worked in a coal mine, I would want that kind of faith.
---lovable_linda on 12/4/07

Even if you don't work in a coal mine, you can have that kind of faith, the kind that moves mountains.
School kids performed this test. Two jars of cooked rice. One was labeled, "You Fool", other "Thank You" or "I Love You". The fool jar rotted and stunk. The appreciation jar turned into sweet miso.

Sound has frequency and God's Word is powerful. Yes, God's Word with faith can move mountains, matter and man.

If you have faith, you can speak to the mountains in a loveless marriage and command them to go with God's Word.
With faith in God's Word, you can speak to the mountains of depression and command them to go, in the Name of Jesus.
---lovable_linda on 12/4/07

Christians have been given the authority by Jesus Christ to move mountains and don't ever forget it.
If you're ever stranded in your car on some logging road in a blizzard, with your family, making a wrong turn - remember that God's gives us authority to calm the storm and speak to the mountains - literally and spiritually and command matter to move, storms to stop and ask for help to come.
---lovable_linda on 12/4/07

First you need to understand what that scripture means. It simply means that through faith we can do the Impossible. Sometimes it may not be in your best interest on moving that mountain. God's will shall be done in the end.

According to a TV show, a landslide across the ocean could send a major tsunami to the coast of the United States. Imagine what throwing a whole mountain into the sea would do.

But...believing that my mountain of sins is cast into the sea of forgetfulness, and believing a lady companion's sins and problems are cast into the sea and love will reign in how I relate with her, bearing "all things" (1 Corinthians 13:7) . . . sound like what Jesus "might" have meant?(o:
---Bill_bila5659 on 10/12/07

Well, Debbie . . . Jesus said, "if you say to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' it will be done," in Mathew 21:21. To "say" would not necessarily be demanding or commanding, but maybe just claiming and guiding the mountain humbly > "nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock." (1 Peter 5:3)
---Bill_bila5659 on 10/12/07

We're all given faith the size of a mustard seed, so we're all on equal footing there.
I believe the Scripture says what it says.

There is the gift of faith which has a larger seed. There are literal mountains and spiritual mountains. I've not seen too many mountains shifting their position, but spiritual mountains are moved.

---Michelle on 10/12/07

He conquered death..that is the biggest Mountain ever.

Have pondered this question for years. I've come to believe that neither command or demand by the authority given to us in the Lord Jesus Christ can we expect the mountain to move.(Because of mere man's inadequacies) but rather the mountain will move in relation to our position in Christ. Being in his will.

Move a mountain of doubt with just a Word of Faith...Move a mountain of fear with just a Word of Faith...move a mountain of hatred with a Voice of Love...move a mountain of pain with a Promise of Purpose...move a mountain of gloom with an Attitude of Joy...and spread the Joy, Love and Faith...that is the Power of Contradiction...rachel...

I just wanted to share that Peter, started to sink, because he took his eyes off Jesus.
It's a picture of what happens when we take our eyes of Jesus. When we take our eyes off of him, we too start to sink, and then that's when our troubles start. We must keep our eyes on HIM.. It doesn't have to mean walking on water, but our walk in life.

There once was a man who stood beside Yahshua (Jesus) when he began to walk on water. Then the wind started to blow and he became scared and he began to sink. Then Yahshua said to the man "if you would have believed without doubt, then you too can walk on water". 99.9% of people will never have undoubtable faith or they too could walk on water.

I believe the verse has been taken too loosely over the years. I see it as when God truely gives us a task, such as going from place "A" to place "B", not even a mountain can stand in the way. We can, through God's authority move any mountain, real or perceived if it stands in the way of fulfilling God's word.
---mikefl on 7/24/06

Debbie, I don't believe anyone can demand or command God to do anything. He is not under submission to anyone. We can pray and ask God, but never demand anything just because we have faith. Up until now, I have never seen any man Christian or not, ever move a mountain, and for that matter a hill. If what you are speaking about as a mountain of trouble He can remove it and He can leave it, for chastiment in your life, and later remove it. But never are we to demand anything. He is Lord, we are not.
---lee_1 on 7/22/06

Debbie, I have found as one submits to God, Worships Father, stays in fellowship with Him, that HE voluntarily moves the mountain for us out of His infinite love for us. He has changed people's hearts towards me when these people were so bitter and resentful and now we are like sisters. He has moved many mountains for me in spite of my stupid mistakes I make. "The battle is the Lords" when you Worship Father in Spirit and Truth.

Debbie..I see the mountain as a stumbling block or a figure to show us there is nothing we can do to remove sin (A Mountain) from our lives, but only through faith can Jesus remove the mountain (sin) from our life.
