How You Can 'Speak to the Mountain' and Receive Kingdom Victory

I recently watched John Tesh on a PBS special, and again on TBN's Huckabee, in which he shared his amazing story of healing and deliverance from a deadly diagnosis. Even after aggressive treatments the doctors gave little hope of recovery and predicted a short time to live. But he and His believing wife, Connie, turned to God to do what the doctors could not do. They were at war for his very life and had to put on the armor of God, raise their shields of faith and use the weapon of the Word of God, the sword of the Spirit. They were thrust into a war they did not choose, but had to fight anyway.

Among the Scriptures God used were these words spoken by Jesus:

"For truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says" (Mark 11:23).

Their mountain seemed impossible to move; but using other Scriptures and working in conjunction with the Holy Spirit, they fought the battle and came out victorious. The death sentence was reversed. Their test became a testimony.

The Bible says, "death and life are in the power of the tongue" (see Prov. 18:21a). Words are powerful. The old saying, "Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me" is simply not true. Words can build up; encourage; bring love, hope and confidence; and can also demolish a person's self-esteem, leaving them shattered and unproductive. Jesus said we will give an account for every idle word we speak (see Matt. 12:36). "Idle" here meaning "having no productive effect" or "good fruit."

We live in a world where words are plentiful. There is no lack of them: good or bad, positive or negative. read more
