In Matthew 21:21-22 Yeshua, Jesus said "If you have faith and do not doubt....you will speak to the mountain and tell it to be thrown into the sea and it will be done. If you have faith you will receive whatever you demand by praying GOD's prayers. Maybe right now you are saying to yourself what is this guy talking about. Just be patient and keep reading. Yes I know that your translation says "that you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer but don't forget that you are reading a translation and often what you are reading reflects the translators understanding and interpretation of the original Greek or Hebrew and unfortunately it's not always correct. I noticed that Jesus said to speak to the mountain, the problem, the situation but in all the bible translation that I have examined he seems to contradict himself because he the seems to say not that you should speak to the mountain the same way that he always did but that you should ask God. You should pray to God.. I decided to do some research into the original Greek. I looked up the words pray and ask in "Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of The Bible" and Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words" and I discovered that there are alternate translations of the words ask and prayer which not only don't contradict speaking to the mountain but reveal why most prayer is so powerless and never receives an answer. The Greek word translated ask can also be translated require, demand, decree. The problem is that in order to demand that the mountain be cast into the sea we need to have faith. What are we basing that faith on? "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word." Rom 10:7. The answer here is in the literal meaning of the Greek word which was translated as prayer. The literal meaning of the Greek is to pray GOD's prayer. Strong's and Vine's claim that this is the subjective meaning and that the objective meaning is to pray to GOD. They are wrong! In their interpretation they not only revealed that they did not understand what the Greek was saying but they have managed to emasculate and remove what is one of the most powerful promises in all of the Word of GOD. What the Greek is saying is that we should take GOD's will, GOD'S promises, GOD'S prayers and we should speak them and we will receive an answer. We should make ourselves available as God's mouth. What we traditionally call GOD's promises are actually creative prayers that are waiting to be spoken into manifestation.. The first example of this is Genesis 1:3 "Then GOD said let there be light and there was light." This is the first prayer in the Word of GOD. The key issue here is GOD said. Gods words have creative power. So do ours. In this dispensation Jesus is the head and we are the body. That means that our mouth is his mouth and in order for his promises and/or prayers to manifest we need to speak them. We need to let him use our mouths. When we read 1Peter.2:24 "by his stripes we are healed." it is not only a promise but it is a prayer. GOD is waiting for us to speak it and then it will manifest. Until GOD said "Let there be light" in Genesis 1:3 there was no light. We need to let GOD speak through us.
Lets examine Jesus prayers. He knew what the Father was doing and that's what he did.. He knew what the Father was praying and that is what he prayed. He spoke to the mountain and it moved. He didn't beg the Father to do what he wanted like most people do. He wasn't a spiritual beggar. He already knew what the Fathers will was and he commanded it to manifest. That is what he wants us to do. In Matthew 18:18-19 Jesus says " 18:18 "I assure you: whatever you bind on earth is already bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth is already loosed in Heaven.18:19 Again I assure you: If two of you on earth agree about any matter that you pray GOD's prayer for it will be done for you by my Father in Heaven." In Matthew 21 he told us to speak to the mountain. First you agree with GOD and his literal word. This gives us a solid foundation for our faith. Then we agree with each other and speak to the mountain and GOD gives us what is already ours. Read the book of Acts and you will find that the early Church knew this and that is how they operated. Peter didn't beg God to heal the beggar. He told him "silver and gold I don't have but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." Acts-3:6 We are not beggars either.. GOD has already given us the answer to our prayers before we speak them.
