Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing

The world’s greatest sermon continues to bless those whose hearts are open to hear. Words of blessings fell like “rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.” His listener's hearts opened to the same said blessings that have filled humanity ever since. Christ’s words set ablaze the disciples who preached the Gospel to the world. We also need to catch the same blessings freely offered to us today.

Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing


The “greatest sermon ever preached” was given on a once-unnamed mountain, now known as the mount of the Beatitudes. The words there spoken 2000 years ago have echoed down through the ages as guidance and encouragement for Christians on the upward path. Blessed are the poor in spirit, the meek, the merciful. These blessings form only a part of the message Christ gave on that crowded hillside. This publication expounds on and gives insight into the deep messages behind Christ's greatest sermon.

Ellen Gould White (née Harmon) November 26, 1827 – July 16, 1915

“Make Christ first and last and best in everything. Constantly behold Him, and your love for Him will daily become deeper and stronger.” Ellen White wrote countless gems like this and many others during her lifetime. In December 1844 at the age of 17, while praying earnestly with friends, Ellen Harmon received her first vision, a supernatural view of God’s people on their spiritual journey to the city of God. Throughout her ministry she continued to have hundreds of visions from God. The counsels and insights she was shown have been preserved in more than 100,000 pages of books, articles, and manuscripts, all written throughout her 70 year span of ministry.

Nineteenth-century women were rarely counted as leading religious figures. Neither were those with a shortened grade school education expected to become best-selling authors. However, Ellen White is known as the world’s most-widely published woman on religious topics. For a woman of her times, she was indeed remarkable, traveling and preaching throughout America, Europe, and Australia. Ellen White wrote dozens of divinely inspired and insightful books on such topics as Scripture, health, relationships, marriage, parenting, education, evangelism, and many other important themes. Her love for Jesus shines through all her writings, especially in her classics, Steps to Christ, The Desire of Ages, Thoughts from the Mount of Blessings, and Christ’s Object Lessons. Her works have changed millions of lives to become healthier, happier, and dedicate themselves to God. Ellen White was a gifted nineteenth-century religious writer, author, and renowned speaker. Her life’s a living testament to what it means to be wholly led by God.
