Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing
Ellen G White
The Sermon on the Mount has been called ‘The Manifesto of the King’. It is the essence of the teaching of Jesus Christ presented to His disciples. To those who heard it on the hill overlooking Galilee 2000 years ago, it had an immediate impact. In some respects it was revolutionary, overturning the accepted ideas of the time. It packs a powerful punch today, and will bring the peace that passes understanding to all who read these wonderful words of life as presented by Jesus Christ Himself.
Here are two sample passages from this beautiful book:
“The Father’s presence encircled Christ, and nothing befell Him but that which infinite love permitted for the blessing of the world. Here was His source of comfort, and it is for us. He who is imbued with the Spirit of Christ abides in Christ. The blow that is aimed at him falls upon the Saviour, who surrounds him with His presence. Whatever comes to him comes from Christ. He has no need to resist evil, for Christ is his defence. Nothing can touch him except by our Lord’s permission, and “all things” that are permitted “work together for good to them that love God.” Romans 8:28.
Thoughts from the Mount of Blessing pages 86 & 87
“It is not because of inherent power that year by year the earth produces her bounties and continues her motion around the sun. The hand of God guides the planets and keeps them in position in their orderly march through the heavens. It is through His power that summer and winter, seed time and harvest, day and night follow each other in their regular succession.
It is by His word that vegetation flourishes, that the leaves appear and the flowers bloom. Every good thing we have, each ray of sunshine and shower of rain, every morsel of food, every moment of life, is a gift of love.”
