Moving Mountains is Moving Protons, Neutrons and Electrons
Every cell in your body can only really respond to everything your mind is feeling and saying to it. When you entertain negativity you essentially compromise your immure system and cause it to break down. So then people start to doubt the word of God because they are now dealing with the physical, emotional and spiritual manifestations of the choices they ultimately made. Why would any true believer ever doubt the Word of God would “Not”, really work for them? Why wouldn’t you simply doubt the lies of the demons who gave you such an imaginative thoughts instead? Since God means what He says, and He said what He means, the moment you decide to doubt the lies of the devil and simply believe the Holy Word of God you begin to connect and receive guidance from the Holy Spirit. Entering into a place of faith can literally move those mountains the spirit of doubt and unbelief built.
We read in Mark 11:23,”For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
My best educated guess here is that most people who read this passage, probably gloss over the literal meaning about moving mountains because not very many people appear to understand or truly imagine how beliefs and words can actually move huge, physical solid things like mountains.
There is an amazing account from the 10th century of a peasant type gentleman called Simon the Tanner who is also called Saint Simon the Shoemaker, who apparently the Lord used to move a mountain in Cairo Egypt to avoid further persecution by the Muslims. It is recorded the Muslim ruler at this time found the New Testament verse in which Jesus declared in Matthew 17:20,”If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
The Muslim ruler demanded that the Christians demonstrate the veracity of their faith by means of moving the Mokattam Mountain which was spoiling his personal view from his palace. Telling them that if they proved powerless, it would signify that the Christian religion was false, and he would then kill and destroyed all the Christians in thier village.
Throughout the Holy Bible we see that Egypt has always been associated with supernatural signs and wonders. It was in Egypt that our Lord displayed some of the most awesome signs and wonders under the rod of Moses.
The Christian under great pressure with a life or death situation took the Biblical pattern found in the Book of Esther, after three days of heart felt prayer and fasting those 10 century Christians in Egypt, picked a simple shoemaker named Simon for his humility to use his faith to command the mountain to move and save them from the occultist sword of Islam.
Simon simply believed the Word of God in his heart so that mountains could literally be moved, just as the Bible says! It is recorded that when Simon commanded that mountain to move a great earthquake shook the mountain. Each time those Christians stood up to worship the eternal living Christ, the mountain was lifted upwards, and the sun could be seen shining underneath it by those who witnessed this event. When the people sat down, the mountain thrust down, it is recorded this happen 3 times before the mountain was moved. Because of this supernatural miracle, the mountain was moved and set down several miles away and the Christian community was saved. Interestingly it was recorded that Simon was never seen again after this experience. Some believed that he disappeared at that time to avoid receiving any glory or credit for the miracle that took place. Today in Egypt he is still beloved by Christians, as well as many Muslims as Saint Simon the Tanner. There is a church built in the place where the mountain moved to commentate the moment when the Lord performed this miracle. There are numerous ancient cravings and paintings that depicts the event.
Someone once sent me a testimony of a young boy with a serve asthma issue who died in a village in Africa after doctors said there was nothing more they could do for him. So the doctors sent him home and he died on the way, his mother was quoted as saying when she realised he was dead she wanted to die in her overwhelming grief. In that village it was not permissible to bury the died on a Friday so the young boy’s body was laid on the ground as family and friends grieved and mourned his passing. Then Doctor Messiah Jesus/Yeshua showed up, working through a travelling evangelist that he sent in there who boldly professed and told the villagers Jesus would raise the boy back to life. The villagers said how can this happen when the boy has been died now 24 hours? The evangelist showed them videos of miracles that have been recorded to raise their faith to believe. After the boy came back to life even that doctor who sent him home to die became a Christian as did many of his doctor friends and villagers who turned from those false religions over to Christ alone.
Mark 22 talks about the fact that we need to have simple faith in God. I think its always a good idea to start each day with thanksgiving, praise and worship. Because when you thank the Lord, He listens, and when you praise His Holy name, He is by your side, as the angel of the Lord encamps round you, and when you truly worship Christ acts on your behalf!
We always ought to put God first in everything and not leave him out of any discussions and decisions.
Mark 11:23 talks about the fact you need to speak to those mountains and remove them to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you..
What about all those strongholds of programming which are like mountains, all those poisonous thoughts that you have wired in, with all the bad choices that you have made, building up the strongholds in your mind and life. These are the mountains of sinful thinking, just considering how many thoughts we have entertained that we should have never allowed into our minds in the first place. All thoughts should be made to present a passport to the obedience of Christ. Why allow just any thought to wander about your mind? Would an immigration officer allow just anyone inside your countries borders without making certain they were not coming in to do harmful things?
As far as the Lord is concerned, all sin this is basically sin, and no one can stand before the Lord almighty unless we recognise our sin nature and repent through the finished work of the cross of Jesus. Now when you speak to the mountains, people round you including other believers who don’t know the Word of God very well may criticise and probably even ridicule you. They did to that evangelist before he spoke to that dead boy to be resurrected. What if he listened that those scoffers and doubters instead of the Holy Spirit that boy would have been buried now and long gone. That young boy came back talking about playing football (soccer) in Heaven with some other lads and after he scored, they all said its time you go back to your mum now. That young boy’s world has been turn inside out, and he shall live his life here knowing the power of the living eternal God resides in him. By the way he was cured of the asthma as well as he was resurrected.
The eternal living God has designed our brain in such a way that we are able to stand outside of ourselves and look at what’s going on in our mind, so we gain some proper perspective. Almost as if you are standing outside and you are hovering in a helicopter over a huge forest and you be observing all these green trees and amongst some of the green trees, there are some of these black sickly looking poisonous trees. Well actually you are able to look at your life sort of like that, you are able to observe your own thoughts. You can observe the poisonous thoughts and you can observe the healthy thoughts. This all takes some disciplined mind work, as does anything worth while. How wonderful to understand that if you align yourself in the Holy Word of God that you can wire out those poisonous thoughts that you once helped wire in.
So just as most people probably feel a wee bit uncomfortable at the idea of our simple faith, beliefs and words are able to move mountains. People may also feel somewhat hesitant to take control of their own thought life, but its well worth practicing. Just ask yourself who will take control of your thoughts if you don’t? Let us continue to reached a point where your thought life is becoming disciplined. So you are bringing all those thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Christ Jesus”
(2 Corinthians 10:5)
I think the public’s attitude is starting to change as more evidence continues to surface and show how powerful our thoughts and words actually are, and how they truly effect our own bodies and our health and overall life.
Proverbs 18:21,”Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” So if death and life are in the power of the tongue why aren’t Christians more careful what they say?
We serve a supernatural God and what we often think we understand about reality often seems to conflict with things especially in what the Holy Bible instructs us about in using the gift of healing and miracles.
2 Timothy 2:15,” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
If we study to show ourselves approved, we might start to understand that things like actual physical mountains are constructed and created out of vibrating, subatomic particles, and so in that sense it be no more substantial than hot air or a cloud or steam? We know now that atoms are the building blocks of everything in our universe. As you explore and study atoms, they appear to exist on the borderline between the existent and the nonexistent, and so we must also apply this understanding to everything else the Lord has made, because the fact is, everything is nothing more than a large collection of atoms in various arrangements. What we understand at the moment is that all matter is made up of atoms, with each atom having different elements, or rather being different to those of the other elements, which is what makes silver different to gold and carbon, different to hydrogen and the list seems endless on how you can compare them.
The idea of atoms has been know since the ancient Greeks and for ages people thought the atom was the smallest thing that could not be divided. Then back in the mid 1930s atoms were discovered to have been made up of three fundamental particles – protons, neutrons and electrons, so they were actually cuttable entities after all.
I mean how small can this possible go? Still with God’s amazing creation with the universe He built, I think we have much more to learn and understand. Something we shall continually be doing in Heaven as well I believe. Anyway later on it was discovered there are actually subatomic particles and it turns out that there are many more components to this. So essentially an atom is composed of electrons, protons and neutrons, and a whole lot of other subatomic particles that exist with it in supporting roles.
There is a whole lot of atomic menagerie of things here working together to make up this reality, regardless whether certain physicists think our Universe is not real and only a giant simulation or not.
Scientific researchers are saying now that atoms are made up of bundles of energy that are in a configurations which then form into a stable entity. So at its most basic level all this means in the current popular theory is that everything is composed of vibrating strands of energy called strings.
However, the string involved in these theories appears that it is only one-dimensional, with no real thickness, more like an infinitely thin line. That is, unless your a mathematician and then you have to construct some other dimensions “wrapped up” inside those strings so you could keep them workable, for mathematical reasons.
The idea that all the stuff of the universe is composed of invisible vibrating strings sort of gives the impression that at the most basic fundamental level the “stuff” appears to be “solid” in some way: When you research this it appears the idea of string theory sounds very much like the idea of particles in a similar way.
Keeping in mind the popular String theory is still just that its a theory and there are a number of interesting theories. Some other theories along this line propose that everything is composed of point-like entities rather than extended string-like ones, invoking sheets or membranes of some fundamental “medium” of expressions.
Instead of theories we can go with facts and the fact is Colossians 1:17,” And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” The Lord Jesus/Yeshua was born or begotten before all creation, and before any creature was ever made; which is how the Holy Scriptures explains the mystery of representing eternity to us. All things being created by the Lord Jesus, and were also created for him; all this was made according to his pleasure, and for his praise and glory. Revelation 4:11,” Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
Basically it pleased God to reconcile our fallen human race to himself. In Christ there are plenty of mysteries; but we see enough of the glory of his plan of redemption in the finished work of the cross, and so we can rejoice in the hope set before us. Understanding that God’s love is so great to us, what can we possibly give back to God except to live a life that is glorifying to Christ. May we stay in close communication through prayer, and listen to the Holy Spirit guiding us. So we live no more for ourselves, but rather we live for Christ. Because Christ suffered and died for us that we now do all we can to die to sin, and live not to ourselves, but to the Lord Jesus.
Hebrews 1:3,” Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;”
So where are we going with all this? Hebrews 11:1,” Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
A substance is something you can measure so if we understand that our belief is an actual substance and that our words are sound waves that impact reality? My guess is we be a whole lot more careful what we thought, say and do if we understood this.
So for example if we think of the literal mountains in this way, it is not so difficult to imagine how our faith and words can actually impact that mountain and make a difference as Simon the tanner experienced. Because if God said it we simply believe it, because God would never mislead us. Now whether the mountains we face in our life are made of dirt and rocks and trees or it is a some sickness, disease, or addiction we need to overcome or if its some family, relationship or business issue the Lord has given us His instructions how to deal with it. Hebrews 11:3,”Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
Clearly scientific research is showing that everything that we can physically see is made of these invisible particles we call called atoms. Just like you can’t see germs unless you put them under a microscope. Its time the church also put those invisible spirits that try and hinder us under God’s eternal microscope.
Physicists today have analyzed the atom and broke it down into smaller and smaller pieces, and basically we are observing at the core tremendous amounts of energy. That tremendous energy are part of the building blocks that atoms are made of. This means that you and I and everything else that we can see and what we can not see is made of units of energy, vibrating at speeds we can hardly imagine.
Thinking this through then from this perspective things that appear as solid matter is actually energy in a congealed form. Albert Einstein showed us how a solid object of energy is only different from fluid form of energy in the rate at which the atoms are moving. This was his famous equation, E = MC2 – in other words meaning that solid matter, accelerated to a very high rate of speed, becomes pure energy.
For example water changes into extremely different shapes and forms depending on how fast its atoms are moving. Water with low levels of energy freezes into ice, if we boost the energy level that ice melts as the water molecules vibrate more rapidly and becomes a liquid form. If you boost the energy up some more what happens is that liquid form of water turns into steam. So water, ice and steam all depend of what level of energy is being displayed in the system of those atoms.
Now consider this for example with our eyes we may see a frozen ice cubes, but even with our limited understanding we know that we can change the ice into water or into steam that will appear to evaporate.
In essence we are using our belief or our ‘faith’ in this ‘unseen reality’ every time we boil water. Because we have faith to know that we can take that solid piece of ice and heat up those atoms to a point where the ice turns into steam and disappears like a cloud that changes and vanishes. If we understand this part how hard is it to understand and imagine that what we perceive as reality is not as solid as it appears.
Because the reality is truly all the things we can see are simply made up of things that we cannot see. Although the Lord can see all of them. Hebrews 4:12,”For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”
So let us consider this as we study to show ourselves approved to the Lord, because everything that appears solid to us today is actually made up of a mass of microscopic minuscule type invisible vibrating particles, and they react and interact to the energy of the other particles that surround them. Now the thing is that really unraveling ones sense of reality is that all these particles seem to be able to be two places at once. I don’t mean like in a parallel universe but rather the evidence is that they actually react to being observed, and they may even appear and disappear in and out of what we understand as existence. So of like the way people have filmed UFO’s with two cameras, one with normal film and one with infrared and the infrared video clearly captures the image where the other camera doesn’t show it is there.
So how this may apply to you? It appears to my understanding that when you think about a particular thought, that thought actually receives an invitation or signal so it moves from your non-conscious mind into the conscious part of your mind. The thinking activity of that particular thought takes up actual real a state in your brain. Because through principles of quantum physics it is showing you are dealing with a real force with real particle-like and wave-like behaviour and interactions of energy and matter.
Personally I think the Lord may have designed science as a way of showing just how awesome all His creation is. The way an artist puts a completed masterpiece into a frame that complements the work.
Researchers in field of quantum physics have really messed up normal understanding of physics as they are observing things that defy the laws physics of what was once understood. So these studies are showing that all these particles have strange and unexpected qualities about them. Because lets face it we serve a supernatural God where all things are possible with him.
I am just trying to articulate that we need to understand there is indeed an invisible reality behind that which we can see in the natural. Which is where knowledge and faith come together for us as believers. I am just wanting to encourage you that as you can see the mountains of problems in the world today there is always hope with the Lord Jesus/Yeshua. So when you look at the mountain of sickness or disease, or the mountain of difficult circumstance, you see them as a Christian ought to see them and look at them with the eyes of our understanding, not just with your physical eyes, in the same we you know that ice can easily become steam.
2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
If we stay in the Word of God the Word of God stays in us. Seems we then eventually start to see and think about that literal mountain as nothing more then a vibrating mass of invisible particles. The Lord Jesus told us that our faith, our belief can make a mountain move. That we understand the spiritual power and force that can move it. Because faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” According to our Holy Guide Book to the Supernatural, faith is a real substance, even though we cannot see it. If faith is a real substance, that means that our beliefs have substance.
Because what we believe has a real effect not only on our bodies but on the invisible reality we don’t see that also surrounds us.
2 Kings 6:17,”And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.”
I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love. PASTOR CASPAR
