The Old Rugged Cross

“All My Mothers” -The Story of Yehudith Kleinman

“Whoever saves one life, saves the the world entire.” Hebrew Talmud When I was 40 years old, director of the International Medical Missionary Training at Herghelia, Romania, my family came from Slovakia to celebrate my birthday. My mom, my Catholic godmother (her sister), my sons Filip and Adam, my brother Piťo and his wife Monika. During this joyous occasion for the first time in my life I heard a special story about my grandpa. I heard often about him, what a special man he was. Everyone in our Podunajské Biskupice village loved him, including gypsies. When the rooster would kill itself [...]

Chad’s Miracle Story With Open End

Last Sabbath in our little church came a man, whose name is Chad. He shared very unusual story of his life, which is still in going. You might say, it is ongoing return to the cross of Jesus! He was in big trouble, came to Jesus, lost Him and came again, lost Him and came again. This time the biggest break through happened and he is for last 16 years following Jesus faithfully. Listen for yourself: As I was listening to Chad, I thought, this is amazing story revealing that our Abba Father doesn't want to give upon us [...]

Bleeding America

America is bleeding and there is no way to stop this wound? The message swept cross the nation like a wild fire when white cops shot African Americans. We got in our Facebook a post of a country singer Coffey  Anderson creating a video with simple suggestions how to prevent an impression that the cop is threatened.

Appeal to you, Christian!

Article below is an appeal to one church long time ago. But in reality this appeal is gaining its significance in our days even more. But instead of being hidden in this appeal as to some group of people hundred years ago, I changed the title as to appeal just to one person and that is YOU and ME: APPEAL TO THE BATTLE CREEK CHURCH I was shown, October 2, 1868, the state of God’s professed people. Many of them were in great darkness, yet seemed to be insensible of their true condition. The sensibilities of a large number seemed [...]

Christian Berdahl

Dear Friends, Suffering and cross-bearing is as old as the history of sin on this planet Earth. We can get the inspiration from ancient stories in the Bible or history, but even today all around us are wounded people. Thousands of them, actually, it's very rare to find a person who wouldn't experience physical or emotional pain. I am from Slovakia and today I found my friend Christian Berdahl speaking in Bratislava, the very city I was born in. His story is very unusual. Not so much because of such cruel pain he had to go through and still does. But [...]

Honey Principle

There are few stages in this principle – I present them to you for your own conclusions: A) Proverbs 24:13 My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: B) Proverbs 25:16 Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it. C) Proverbs 25:27 It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory. D) Proverbs 27:7 The full [satisfied – H7649] soul loatheth [H947] an honeycomb; but to the hungry [...]

Obedience the Path to Life

“And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? How readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: This do, and thou shalt live.”  {RH, March 28, 1893 par. 1}   The positive question of the lawyer was as positively answered [...]

The Spirit of Sacrifice

  The plan of salvation was laid in a sacrifice so broad and deep and high that it is immeasurable. Christ did not send his angels to this fallen world, while he remained in heaven; but he himself went without the camp, bearing the reproach. He became a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; himself took our infirmities, and bore our weaknesses. And the absence of self-denial in his professed followers, God regards as a denial of the Christian name. Those who profess to be one with Christ, and indulge their selfish desires for rich and expensive clothing, furniture, and [...]

Who wouldn’t know this prayer? Mt 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art [...]

Cross in the Kitchen?

We like to eat what we like to eat, am I right? Yet our taste buds need to be reeducated otherwise we continue “gradual suicidal process”. If we want to be more and more Christ-like – “The lower nature, with all its inclinations, must be subdued and crucified, for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” Please study carefully following lines. They are meant for your good! “The Lord presents the right way, but He compels no one to obey.” The Dangers of Indulging Appetite Every Christian should understand that there is a decided [...]

What’s the Truth about Abortion? I hate to share this with you, because it makes us to “behold” our corporate hideousness – how else can I explain that things like these can be LEGALIZED? How is killing of millions of unborn children by pulling them out “piece-by-piece” related to our daily pilgrimage under the cross? Here is a thought from our character building seminar “From Glory to Glory”, Lesson 01 that can help us: […]

Cross in the Bedroom

Could it be that the self-denial needs to start in the sanctuary of marriage which is in the bedroom? This subject is very sensitive, yet important to address. There is so much abuse in this area and many suffering women need encouragement to see the matter from God’s perspective:   Jesus Did Not Enforce Celibacy.–Those who regard the marriage relation as one of God’s sacred ordinances, guarded by His holy precept, will be controlled by the dictates of reason.  {AH 121.1} Jesus did not enforce celibacy upon any class of men. He came not to destroy the sacred relationship of [...]

The Sufferings of Christ


October 18, 2012|Categories: Spirit of Prophecy|

Am I wounding Christ afresh?

Few weeks ago I was teaching Sabbath school lesson and stated that whenever we sin we cause a terrible pains to JESUS. That it was not only 2000 years ago on the cross, but anytime we sin. And that if we would be more aware of this fact we wouldn’t dare to sin anymore. To my surprise I was asked: “Where it is written that JESUS is suffering even today?” At that moment I could think only about Gen 6:6, but this morning I decided to do my search about this subject from Mother White writings.(At the bottom is the [...]

Draw from the Source of Strength

When I am reading the lines below I can see where Pastor Wallace got his inspiration to study and create his seminar about character building “From Glory to Glory”. This is very profound article from the old Signs of the Times magazine:   Angels, cherubim, and seraphim bow in holy reverence before God. “Ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands” of angels are round about the throne, and are sent to minister to those who shall be heirs of salvation. The ruling principles of God’s throne are justice and mercy. It is called the throne of grace. Would [...]

The Character to Be Tested

We are to form characters after the divine Model, Jesus Christ, and bring every power and capability of our natures into subordination to Him in this life, that we may through Him have a right hold of the future immortal life. “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou has sent.” [Jn 17:3] Those who have a character that will be found worthy of a place in the kingdom of God, will be those who have become acquainted with God, who have obeyed the explicit directions given in His [...]

What Was Secured by the Death of Christ?

It became Him for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in the redemption of the world to save sinners by the blood of the Lamb. The great sacrifice of the Son of God was neither too great nor too small to accomplish the work. In the wisdom of God it was complete; and the atonement made testifies to every son and daughter of Adam the immutability of God’s law. The value of the law of Jehovah is to be estimated by the immense price that was paid in the death of the Son of God to [...]

A Crucified and Risen Saviour

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” The more we study the subject of the redemption of the human race, the greater depths we find, and there, as we think of the Redeemer’s glory, are depths we can not reach. It is the glory of the Prince of Life, and the mightiest powers of man can not fully comprehend it. The angels themselves desire to look into this mysterious and wonderful theme. [...]

Roger Morneau – updated

You can go closer and closer to JESUS or further away until you find yourselves completely in the grip of the enemy of our souls – Satan! Yet, if you cry out: JESUS CHRIST, WHO WAS CRUCIFIED FOR ME, SAVE ME! – He will deliver you unexpected way, but He will do it. You are very precious for Him. Believe me! […]

Lessons from the Christ-Life

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son.” God has laid the work of judgment upon Christ because He is the Son of man. He was made in all points like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest. He was to become acquainted with the weakness of every human being. He could do this only by taking upon Himself human nature. He must be touched with the feelings of our infirmities, that at the judgment of the great day none might question the justice of the decisions made. [...]

Genesis 3:15

Genesis 3:15 [KJV] And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her Seed; It shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel. [EBR – Rotherham] And, enmity, will I put between thee, and the woman, and between thy seed, and her Seed,––He, shall crush thy head, But, thou, shalt crush his heel. [God’s Word] I will make you and the woman hostile toward each other. I will make your descendants and her Descendant hostile toward each other. He will crush your head, and you will bruise his heel.” Just a thought [...]

Fanny Crosby

Her full name is Frances Jane Crosby. Who wouldn’t know this precious lady? Many do, many don’t. I heard about her for the first time only when I was about 45 years old, yet most of my life I was singing her songs not knowing about her anything. Did she experience “a cross” in her life? Oh, yes. Google out her life story, I will just focus on one important thing: As a little child she got blind by wrong mistreatment of a man calling himself a physician. Did she become bitter, hopeless, miserable and causing people to feel sorry [...]
