He spoke the truth, even when people hated Him for it.ave faith in God,” Jesus answered. “‘I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him ” (Mark 11:22-23).
In scriptures nations and empires are sometimes called “mountains”. (see Dan 2:44-45).
Alternatively, Moses received God’s Law at a mountain. Jesus brought the New Covenant at the cross set on a hill.
In the New Testament the church is called a mountain.
“But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven ” (Heb 12:22-23).

“And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God” (Rev 21:10).
A mountain is a great, massive rock of either divine revelation or satanic revelation. On the good side is the church, which is the rock, a mountain of divine revelation. On the opposite side is the world, which is a rock, a mountain of satanic revelation.
What Jesus is saying about moving mountains is that we must have faith in God that we can affect great changes in the world—that is we can move the mountain of satanic revelation, and replace it with divine revelation.

They concluded that in order to truly transform any nation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, these seven facets of society must be reached.
The Reformation Prayer Network’s primary goal is to be a catalyst, through prayer and righteous activism, which will bring change to these areas of societal influence.
