By Pastor/Evangelist Barbara

Big or small, I am in it all.  As you walk this road of uncertainty, you will notice that when you call upon the name of My Son Jesus, all things become brand new.  You will see that as you keep climbing the mountain, instead of losing your footage, you will gain your footage and be able to climb even higher.

This is mountain climbing time. It is the time to look into every window of opportunity, plead the blood of Jesus over the circumstances, and then proceed forward.  You will see yourself winning more battles than ever before.  You will comprehend what winning is all about.  It is a time of complete convergence of all things. It is a time when I will answer before you call on the name of Jesus.

Isaiah 65:  24 (NKJV) “It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.

This is the day and the hour of complete obedience to My Still Small Voice.  As you obey, I will open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing you cannot contain.

March, little ones, march to My drum beat and become violent in your warfare of the darkness. Bring the Harvest in.

The stories of the Bible were set in a hilly and mountainous landscape. For this and many other reasons, mountains and hills are mentioned so many times in the Bible – over 500 times. Both the Jewish and Christian cultures attach a significant logical symbolism to the mountains. So what do mountains symbolize in the Bible?

Mount Ararat: This is the mountain where Noah’s ark rested after the flood had subsided. It is said to be 16,845 feet in height. Its story can be found in Genesis 8:  1 – 5.

Mount Sinai: In Exodus 19:  20, 24, the Bible records that Mount Sinai was the venue where Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. It is 7,497 feet.

Mount of Olives: This is a 2,710 ft tall mountain and served the site where Jesus prayed before was crucified. Later, the Bible records that Jesus ascended to heaven from here.

Mount Zion: Slightly shorter in height compared to the Mount of Olives, Mount Zion-2,510 feet, is captured by David and becomes the city of David’s kingdom. 2 Samuel 5:  1 – 10 and 1 Kings 8:1 capture the story very well.

Mount of Transfiguration: On this mountain -Mount Tabor-Jesus is transfigured, joining Elijah and Moses as recorded by Saint Mathews in Mathew 17:  1 – 9, by Saint Luke in Luke 9:  28 – 36 and Saint Mark in Mark 9:  2 – 8. Mount Tabor measures 1,886 feet in height.

Mount Carmel: This is another famous mountain as recorded in 1Kings 18. On this mountain, Elijah the prophet calls on fire from heaven in front of the prophets of Baal to consume a sacrifice. It was a demonstration of the supremacy and sovereignty of God. This mountain is approximately 1,724 feet.
