The Bible says if you have faith and do not doubt, you can say to a mountain, AGo throw yourself into the sea, and it will be done@(Mat 21:21 & Mark 11:23). Have you ever had to duck a mountain? Have you ever heard of a mountain being thrown into the sea?
As I think about it, it seems to me that it is unlikely that a mountain will ever be thrown into any sea. I am not saying that it is not possible, because the Bible plainly states it is possible. The very thing that makes it possible will keep it from happening. The person without faith can not say to the mountain, go throw yourself into the sea, and be successful, because of his, or her, lack of faith. The person who has faith, and does not doubt, knows God made everything, and God put the mountain where the mountain belongs, so it would be wrong to move the mountain. If I had faith and did not doubt, I don=t believe I would move the mountain.
I don=t think Jesus is talking about a physical mountain in these verses. God uses symbolism all through the Bible and I think this is an example of it. I believe the mountain spoken of is symbolic of nations, and the sea is symbolic of the water of baptism. Though I have not seen a mountain thrown into the sea, this I have seen, I am a member of a large church and the leaders of the church do have faith and because of this they have said to a small nation go throw yourself into the water of baptism (large church, but small nation) and they did.
I can not move the mountain and I am not a leader. If you are like me then help those who can. Like Aaron and Hur when they helped Moses.
(Exo 17:9-13 NIV) Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.” So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up–one on one side, one on the other–so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.
