And Jesus answered and said to them, “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ it will happen.
Jesus was on his way back to the City after spending the “night” in Bethany. Bethany being the place where Lazarus, the one who fell asleep, was raised from the dead. In saying “this mountain” he was referring to the Mount of Olives, the one mountain standing directly in-between the City and Bethany.
If you have faith, like the centurion. If you do not waver in faith like Thomas did. Then you will have a special place at the table as a judge alongside The Judge. In that time the brothers in arms, the enlisted soldiers of Christ, the men removed from all entanglement with affairs of this life, the meek and non-violent donkeys, will judge the “fig tree” and the “mountain” and hurl it into the sea of the nations. Their inward reborn man groans for its resurrection out of its lowly body of the ass, and into its glorious heavenly body of the white horse.
These will be the judges of the nations. They left all to follow the Faithful and True and therefore are faithful and true. They part not the hoof.
And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
Not all invited to the wedding feast sat in the places of honor. Some sat at the lowest place. Many were directed, to their shame, to take the lower place. Many who took the lower place were ushered, in the sight of all, to the higher. The last will be first, and the first last. Some will be lords, and some will be servants. For, whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave (Matt. 20:26).
