And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21
Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
The Lord states some facts to us in the Word above which this brother is here to confirm for you today. The fact is, the Lord God still performs miracle answers to prayer day in and day out, right now today. This brother testifies to you in truth that the Lord has performed many miracles in my life and in the lives of the brothers and sisters in Christ. This brother can also testify that the Lord is continuing to perform these miracle answers to prayer through this very day. What did the Lord say?
If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done
The Lord is moving mountains in the world today and this brother has witnesses it with his own eyes. So what? The Lord said He would do it, and He is doing it. His Word is true. The message and encouragement for you is "if ye shall say" that's YOU to this mountain be thou removed and cast into the sea, it will be done.
Part of the work the Lord has given this writer to do is to be a witness and provide a testimony to you that He is doing exactly what He said He would do and He is doing it right now. Every Word He has written to us can be trusted to the uttermost. If you need a mountain moved, there is one and only one place you can go to get that done. It will only be done in Christ and through faith.
The Lord's work was perfect, not a Word too many nor too few in what He has written to us in the Bible. Every Word is there for a reason. Now consider how much time spent (relative to other topics in the Bible) on working miracles. Consider very carefully what our Master told us here:
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. 13
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
Our Lord turned water into wine and raised the Dead. He also multiplied fish and bread so what was enough for one to eat became enough for thousands to eat. He restored sight to the blind. He promised we would do greater things than that and He will not lie, why should He? The presence and power of the Lord God Almighty are alive and well on planet earth today. Anywhere He is, these miracles can and will take place. That is the testimony of this nobody who writes to you today. If you need a miracle, no problem-He is in the miracle making business.
This is written to you today to encourage you to pray, and to seek His face. The Lord is not far off in heaven somewhere busy with other things. He is right here, right now looking over your shoulder and watching every word and inclination of our hearts. He is an ever present help. So ask Him what you need in His name and He will do it. If you have a mountain that needs to be moved, have faith and do not doubt and say to that mountain be thou removed.
Matt 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9
Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10
Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Be encouraged because every one
that asks receives, he that seeks finds and those who knock have the door opened.
grace and peace
