Forgiveness and Mountain Moving Faith

We must be able to walk in forgiveness. Forgiveness isn’t instantaneous. There’s not an app you can download. There’s not a miraculous supplement that will absorb forgiveness. Only by the grace of God and by His love operating within us, can unforgiveness, grudges and toxicity be transformed. It transforms us and future generations.

Many times in life, pain becomes a root of bitterness that stunts the flow of God’s blessing to us. Unforgiveness is one of the biggest reasons for unanswered prayer. Jesus’ command is straightforward: “When you stand praying, forgive.”

The goal of the devil is to keep us in bondage. When we are in alignment with God, we will overcome. The favor of God worked well for Joseph, because he was able to forgive. Not only did he forgive his brothers, he was also able to forgive his accuser and the court system. If you want to move mountains with your prayer or by your words, be sure you have faith and forgiveness in your heart. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on August 2, 2020.

Key Scripture
Mark 11:25–26 AMP
Whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him [drop the issue, let it go], so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions and wrongdoings[against Him and others]. 26 [But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your transgressions.”]

Special Scriptures: The service has been separated into three parts. We encourage you to feast on this three course meal!


Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:

For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Mark 11:23

What We Believe:

We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.

Faith Confession:

We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.
