How to Live and Not Die
“TALK TO THE MOUNTAINS
Jesus told you how to overcome mountains in Matthew 21:21. In this verse, Jesus said, “if ye shall say unto this mountain.” You need to talk to mountains. Use your mouth.
What’s a mountain? “Mountain” could mean a thousand and one things. It could and does mean, for example, disease.
Jesus said to me, Son, you have to teach the people to talk to the mountains and to the devils. “Mountains” or problems are caused by devils, so talk to the mountains and the devils and tell them to get out. Pull them out. Verse 21 continues, “if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.”
Jesus said it! “It shall be done!” And it will disappear in the bottom of the sea of forgetfulness. God won’t remember that dumb mountain anymore. It will be gone.
In verse 22 Jesus said, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” This was the Scripture I used for my text “Confession Brings You Possession” in the small Canadian church.
If you make up your mind to believe God, you will see great things happen all the time. It’s amazing what you will see while the whole church world is sitting around wondering if it’s going to happen or not.
To the man in the wheelchair, I said, “Mister, the word of the Lord came unto me saying that what I taught this morning would work for you if you would obey it! If you would obey it!
“I taught Confession Brings You Possession. You know, talk to your mountains.
Look at your crooked legs and call them straight. Talk to them. Tell them what you mean. You can have what you say. Your confession brings possession. Don’t say your legs are crooked. Call them straight!
Romans 4:17 says that God calls those things which be not as though they were. So call your crooked legs straight. You do it. Call your crooked legs straight.”
He looked at me like he was offended. But I don’t pay any attention to offenses when it comes to God’s work. That’s usually the devil anyhow. I only thought, God said that confession would bring possession to him, and I’m going to get it into him. I’m going to bombard his mind. You see, people’s problems are usually with their minds—they don’t think straight. I was determined to get this man’s thinking straightened out.
So I just held on and pulled myself over to him and put my mouth real close to his ear. I said, “Mister, Jesus said, ‘Call your crooked legs straight.’” I repeated this several times. “Call your crooked legs straight.”
I guess I said that seventy-five to a hundred times.
This old human breath wants to give out, but you have to keep on and not let go.
I had to blast this man’s goofed up mind away from him.
Finally, the man in the wheelchair opened up on the inside and said, “I call my legs straight!”
I said, “Well, thank God for that! Glory to God!” I almost wore myself out for him.
You see, some people’s minds are so goofed up, you will wear yourself out trying to get the Word of God on the inside of them.
After I got the man in the wheelchair to call his legs straight, I kept encouraging him.”
“That’s right, now you’re pleasing the Lord. Keep on saying that.”
It was hard for him to get it out, but he kept on.
When I had him continually confessing, I backed off.
After about five minutes of confessing that his legs were straight, the Spirit of the Lord came and overshadowed him. He will do that for everyone who confesses the Bible and claims it for themselves. He’ll do it for you, too!
The man began to cry.
And, you know, I had gotten confession brings you possession so deep into him that in the midst of his crying he was still confessing.
The Spirit of God was blessing him so much. He kept confessing, “I call my legs straight.” I stood there and watched him. He arose from his wheelchair and walked across the front of the church and then walked back.
The pastor said, “He hasn’t ever done anything like this”
I said, “Do you know why? You’ve never talked to his crooked legs before. But he talked to them today. He called them straight, they became straight, and he received strength from God.”
I told his pastor to keep encouraging him. The Holy Spirit gave this man strength because He heard him say the Word. The Holy Spirit listens to you. He listens to every word that you say. And when you start quoting the Bible, the Holy Spirit starts working for you at that moment.
The precious gospel of Jesus Christ doesn’t work just for the man in Canada. If you will say to the mountain, it shall be done for you! Jesus said in Matthew 21:21, “If ye have faith, and doubt not… if ye shall say unto this mountain…it shall be done.”
