Faith Like a Grain of Mustard Seed

We are told that faith the size of a grain of mustard seed can move mountains:

Matt 17:20 He told them, "Because of your lack of faith. I tell you with certainty, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.

Question is, when is the last time you saw a mountain moved? What does that tell you about your personal state of faith (not trying to beat you up here/making a point) and the faith (or lack thereof) in the world around you? When the Son of man returns will he find faith on earth? One of the pillars of warning that the Lord has given burdened me with to put in the world's face is Matt 7:14-28. Why will so few be saved?

How about this, most people just pay lip service to real faith and belief. The Lord was constantly on the disciples about their lack of faith what do you think his assessment of faith on earth today is? People "play church" by the millions yet the world is full of darkness and rot instead of light and salt. Mountains are not moved because faith is lacking.

I think the Lord has made it clear to me that these pre-flood days will continue just as they are today right up to the day of the escape from all/removal of the restrainer/revelation of the man of sin. While we live in these "days of the Son of man" what are we doing with the days?

Luke 17:22 And he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the days of the Son of man, and ye shall not see it.

There are days coming when people will look back at today as "good times." Hard to believe for many people but that's the truth. The Lord always warns before he acts. We've come to a point in these end times when the signs are all around us and undeniable. With the days that are left the Lord has given me a vision mission to move in power utilizing every ounce of faith at my disposal to move mountains before the day I stand before him. It's a mission for the poor and everything has to come from heaven to make it happen. I realize that I am a nobody, the least of the brothers, so what does the Lord expect from you before you meet him face to face? I believe we have been called to operate in power/great faith before we are called home.
The work of God is to believe, we know that:

John 6:29
... Jesus answered them, "This is the work of God: to believe in the one whom he has sent."

How does a person believe without FAITH? I'm talking about real faith here not the lip service paid by churchianity today. The muscles in your body grow weak without exercise, so does your faith. Jesus "moved mountains" with his faith and said we would do greater things than he did:

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

How many years have you "played church" without seeing a single mountain moved? Is that acceptable? Do you think the Lord is pleased with this? Who is responsible for the lack of mountains moved? Your hired hand spiritual employee (pastor)? are responsible/we are responsible. This is a wake up call not a beat down. We may have days left, we may have years, I don't know. What I do know with certainty is that the Lord has "switched gears" from pointing out all the signs which have now become blatantly obvious to moving in power from today through the last day we stand on this earth.

Does it surprise you that the Lord expects FAITH from us? Not the lip service brand, REAL faith that moves mountains. Most people sit in their buildings getting "serviced" by the spiritual CEO (pastors) expecting great moves of faith to come from someone else. This is what the idolatry of the pastoral system produces, masses of impotent people who look to the "guru" pastors for all the big spiritual things. After all, the "pastor" presents himself to you as a "man of God" a "professional" spiritual guru right? Man of God? What the heck do you think we are supposed to be?

We have been called out of the Babylonian prostitute masquerading around this world as "christianity." We have been called out of the prostitute and into the true body of Jesus where moving mountains through REAL FAITH is the norm not the exception. If you don't know where to start exercising your faith try looking around you at the family and friends who are not "in Christ" today. Each soul moved into our master is a mountain moved, faith exercised. Do you think souls brought "in Christ" impresses our Lord? I do.

Luke 15:3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying, 4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

There is so much darkness, rot, despair, lack of every kind, soul starvation etc etc in this world that the places to engage your faith and "move mountains" is limitless. Every aspect of today's dark world is designed to suppress faith. Babylonian churchianity was designed as a system to suppress faith. Don't believe me? The proof is right in front of your eyes everywhere. "churches" and "pastors" are everywhere yet this world is drowning in darkness. Light does not flee from darkness, darkness flees from light, so where is their light?

The spotlight is on you now, not on the prostitute "church" pretending to be a wife while whoring after the world in every way imaginable. The Lord is merciful and he wants you to arrive to the kingdom of heaven in strength and honor with a hero's welcome not skidding in with your pants on fire from a "near miss" with hell. We have been given all this in an act of love. When you see your first "mountain moved" which will only come with faith, you will understand. When we see no mountains moved that means there is not even faith enough to measure up with a mustard seed.

When Jesus asked if he would find faith on earth when he returned it was more than just a question, its was also a prodding statement to you and me to get our act together and engage with whatever faith we can summon today. Use what you have and you'll be given more (parable of the talents Matt 25). If you allow the prostitute and her hired hand servants to sing you a lullaby for the rest of your days on earth, well..that will be tragic. Wake up.

grace and peace
