The parable of the mustard seed, the smallest seed, growing into the biggest tree?
I don't believe so - a "Mustard seed DOESN'T grow into a great tree, and "Birds" are generally signs of EVIL presence. So the parable appears to be saying that "something unnatural will be happening" - i.e. the Mustard seed IS NOT PRODUCING what it should produce (Committed Christians, focused on the Lord, and his work), but instead produced "Vast religious organizations" full of Corruption, and "business ethics", providing a home for evil.

I can't get a mountain to move into an ocean (yes I've tried).
Which is because you never had FAITH to move the mountain. FAITH is invariably a GIFT, and the Galatian issue is present: "THe one who does MIRACLES among you - does he do it by the "Works of the law, OR BY THE HEARING of FAITH"???

FAITH comes by HEARING, and Hearing by the Word of God (which is anything GOD SAYS to you).
