Only One Mountain To Move

Only One Mountain To Move

Acts 19:15 – “But the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?””

It’s one thing to say you know the Word of God. It’s one thing to have knowledge about the Word. It’s another thing, though, to have that Word hidden in your heart and to have intimacy with the One who is that Word made flesh.

In the Scripture above, the sons of Sceva quoted the words of Paul and declared the name of Jesus in an attempt to take authority over evil spirits. But, they were met with failure. It did not work. Many people today are similar to them. They know how to quote words on a page, but do not know how to access the real power of the Word.

The Bible says in Matthew 7:22-23, ‘On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?” And then will I declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”’ What were they missing? They lacked intimacy with Jesus himself—the Word become flesh.

But that is not your testimony. Today, make the decision to KNOW the Word and be KNOWN by the Word. Today, all the games end and you become intimate with your Creator. If you talk to God about power, He is going to talk to you about purity. Today, a purity comes into your life like never before. Today, the promises of God begin to manifest in your life and the power of the name of Jesus becomes more evident than ever before!

Matthew 28:18 – ‘And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”’

Read that again. Read it until it gets into your spirit. Why? Jesus declares in this verse that ALL (say “all” out loud) authority and power were given to Him. Not just in heaven. Not just on earth. But, in heaven and on the earth. Do you fully understand what that means? If Jesus has all power and authority, then that means the devil is left with zero power and zero authority. None! If the devil has been made completely powerless, then he cannot be your greatest adversary, or even an adversary at all. What then is the greatest adversary in the life of the believer?

As a child of God, you have the same power and authority that Jesus has operating in your life. But most people have one, huge mountain that stands in the way of their victory. That mountain is called ignorance and it stands in front of the word of God. Your greatest adversary in life is not the devil, but ignorance to the word of God. If you will move that mountain, then God will move every other mountain in your life for free.

Let me give you two verses that will help you:

1) Genesis 14:19 – “And he (Melchizedek) blessed him (Abram) and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!”

In this verse, Melchizedek recognizes that God delivered Abram’s enemies into his hand, as Abram heard the word of God and obeyed it. The word picture here, which is clear in the Hebrew language, is powerful. It actually means that God took the shield of Abram’s enemies and handed it to Abram, rendering his enemies defenseless!

2) Isaiah 55:12 – “For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”

If you read this whole chapter, which I highly recommend, you will see that Isaiah starts this chapter talking about buying the word of God, never selling it, and consuming it like food or drink. When you do this, the mountains will break forth into singing and will no longer be a hinderance to you.

Today, you are moving the mountain of ignorance that has hindered you. Today, God removes all the shields of your enemies and hands them to you. Today, your enemies are defenseless against you. Today, your tears of defeat are over. Today, you move God by His WORD spoken in FAITH and from a heart full of KNOWLEDGE. What has been deemed impossible in your life is turned into a testimony of victory today, in the name of Jesus!
