I love this story! So many good lessons ~
Mark 2:1 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home.
Mark 2:2 They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.
Mark 2:3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by…
Tammy Roesch started the topic "WORTHY" ~ Man's Standard is Far Different Than God's Standard in the forum MH ~ Ministry of Healing 6 days, 5 hours ago
WORTH in the Jewish leaders mind was determined by MONEY ~ and especially, how much MONEY you had given to THE CHURCH. Sadly, nothing has changed….
The Jewish elders had commended the centurion to Christ because of the favor he had shown to “our nation.” He is worthy, they said, for “he hath built us a synagogue.” But the centurion said of hims…[Read more]
It is the lot of God’s servants to suffer opposition and reproach from their contemporaries. Now, as in the time of our Saviour, men build the sepulchers and sound the praises of the dead prophets, while they persecute the living messengers of the Most High. Wm. Miller was despised and hated by the ungodly and unbelieving; but his influence and…[Read more]
I don’t often agree with ATODAY, but this time, I think they are very correct (except that I don’t agree that we should take the Corona Vaccine). Walter Veith is leading many people astray. I am convinced he is a WOLF in SHEEPS CLOTHING. It’s so sad that he seems to have almost a CULT-LIKE following. People take what he says as GOSPEL and few…[Read more]
Tammy Roesch started the topic Centurion's Unbelief Almost Cost Him the Life of His Son in the forum 2SP ~ The Spirit of Prophecy Volume 2 1 week, 6 days ago
This passage makes me think of the story of how back before 1844, William Miller went to speak at one of the Churches, and the Pastor from the Church had never met him before. William Miller was coming in on the train and the Pastor went to the train station to get him, and when he saw him, he saw this old man who he didn’t think would be able…[Read more]

Speaking of the Jewish Church when Jesus came the 1st time ~
A backsliding church closed their eyes to the signs of the times. God did not forsake them, or suffer his faithfulness to fail; but they departed from him, and separated themselves from his love. As they refused to comply with the conditions, his promises were not fulfilled to them. 4SP…

“And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”…[Read more]

I just LOVE reading the Spirit of Prophecy and finding new GEMS. 🙂 I never realized until this morning that the day that Jesus cleansed the Temple, THAT VERY NIGHT was the night that Nicodemus searched out Jesus and had the INTERVIEW with Him. I don’t believe one would ever come to that conclusion by the Bible alone.
During the entire day after…[Read more]
What a stark contract between the REVERENCE for the TEMPLE in the wilderness and the REVERENCE for the TEMPLE in Jerusalem ~
TEMPLE IN THE WILDERNESS
When the Lord came down upon Mount Sinai, the place was consecrated by his presence. A divine command was given Moses to put bounds around the mount and sanctify it, and the word of God was heard in…[Read more]
Tammy Roesch started the topic Ephesians 5:22-24 ~ Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands…. in the forum Chapter 5 3 weeks, 2 days ago
This is one of the most used and abused verses in the Bible.
The apostle writes, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own h…
Tammy Roesch started the topic Amalgamation ~ What is the meaning of Amalgamation in 3SG? in the forum 3SG ~ Spiritual Gifts, Volume 3 3 weeks, 2 days ago
But if there was one sin above another which called for the destruction of the race by the flood, it was the base crime of amalgamation of man and beast which defaced the image of God, and caused confusion everywhere. God purposed to destroy by a flood that powerful, long-lived race that had corrupted their ways before him. 3SG 64.1

Tammy Roesch started the topic John 2:10 A Lesson Taught In Turning the Water into Wine in the forum Chapter 2 3 weeks, 3 days ago
In this miracle, Jesus illustrates the truth that while the world presents its best gifts first, to fascinate the senses and please the eye, he gives good gifts, ever fresh and new unto the end. They never pall upon the taste, the heart never sickens and tires of them. The pleasures of the world are unsatisfying, its wine turns to bitterness, its…[Read more]
And she tells us more about how to apply this story to our own lives ~Jesus loved his mother tenderly; for thirty years he had been subject to parental control; but the time had now come when he was to go about his Father’s business. In rebuking his mother, Jesus also rebukes a large class who have an idolatrous love for their family, and allow…
It was unusual to dispense with it on these occasions; so the mother of Christ, who, in her capacity of relative had a prominent part to perform at the feast, spoke to her son, saying, “They have no wine.” In this communication was a hidden request, or rather, suggestion, that He to whom all things were possible would relieve their wants. But…
Think about it…”a self-control stronger than hunger or death.” How much self-control do you and I have? For some of us, we struggle to pass on the unneeded second helping at dinnertime or that second healthy dessert. Some of us cannot imagine not having 3 meals a day or skipping even just one meal when it’s really too busy too eat. When it comes…[Read more]
When I read this statement, it is impossible for me to believe that Ellen White is using the word TEMPTATIONS in the same way most use it today. Most people believe that something is NOT A TEMPTATION UNLESS they FIND IT ENTICING. I don’t believe for a second that that is how we are to understand what she wrote here, regarding Jesus and TEMPTATION…[Read more]

WHO was responsible for the death of John the Baptist?
*** Herodias with her extreme hatred was at the root of it.

Tammy Roesch started the topic Luke 7:20 John's IMPATIENCE Almost Caused Him to Lose Faith in Jesus in the forum Chapter 7 1 month ago
John had indistinct ideas of the kingdom Christ came to establish, as also had the disciples of Christ. They thought Christ would establish a temporal kingdom, and reign upon the throne of David in Jerusalem. He became impatient because Christ did not immediately make himself known, assume kingly authority, and subdue the Romans. He hoped that if…[Read more]

If this statement doesn’t show us how IMPORTANT the Health message is, I don’t know what to say!
The body is the only medium through which the mind and the soul are developed for the upbuilding of character. Hence it is that the adversary of souls directs his temptations to the enfeebling and degrading of the physical powers. His success here…[Read more]
