Many in the church today express the desire to have the same type of anointing. The truth is, that we do have that anointing. Jesus said in Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 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.
As the Lord says in this verse, what and how we say things is important for the expected result of our prayers. I heard Kenneth Copeland say, “People can have whatever they say, but they have been saying what they have.”
I agree with James that these things ought not to be. We should use the authority of what we say to bless and bring prosperity for the growth of the Kingdom of God. We should be talking like Jesus who gave us His mandate to go into all the world and minister His word so that all may come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. How could God send us into the world prowled by wolves without there being an authority in our faith spoken words? Jesus said that He would send the Holy Spirit so that we could speak with Christ’s authority.
Mary must have noticed the way Jesus spoke and the results of His words as Jesus grew in stature of manhood. At the wedding in Cana, Mary says something incredible to the servants. John 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he says unto you, do it. Whatever HE SAYS, do it. Since we are to do what Jesus says, then when the Lord says to say to the mountains that are in our lives to be removed, then it is time to do what He says. Say it from a heart of faith.
If the Lord says that death and life is in the power of the tongue, then that is our starting point. We use our faith-filled words that contain the power of God and we say, “Mountains be removed.” Christ said it, therefore, so be it!
