Using Authority in Victorious Warfare

Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dries up from the roots. And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”
So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
“Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Mark 11:20-24.  Jesus curses fig tree
Jesus’ action in cursing the fig tree indicates a passion in prayer and faith that we need to learn. His disciples having noticed the withered tree and were surprised at the complete withering of it.
Many today respond like the disciples “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.” Jesus’ responded with a sharp command, “Have faith in God.” Then, calling His disciples to “speak to mountains,” He led them to prepare for situations in which they would find it necessary to take direct authority in the spiritual realm to impact things in the natural realm.
Real and tangible obstacles loom as blockades against the accomplishment of God’s purpose through His sons and daughters. Jesus’ command to speak into the face of such obstacles is not a figure of speech, nor is it a

superstitious exercise. It is an act of faith. mountain

learning to speak to our “mountains” (unsaved loved ones and friends, friends and family stricken with so-called incurable diseases) helps us to grow in strength, and seeing those mountains moved by God’s merciful hand encourages us to continue to believe for the miraculous.
