Suggested Reading: Exodus 16

(click scripture link to read online)


I try my best to match images with my dad's blog. Well, manna was miraculous and so is God's creation that we see all around us. Here are the Hexagon Pools in the Golan Heights, Israel. Sheets of columnar basalt tinted a burnished gray hue hang alongside the Hexagon Pools. It's the polygonal sections of rock that give the pools their name. The rock formations have developed by shifting subterranean fault lines over a very long time, which accounts for their unusual twisted appearance.

Key Verse: Exodus 16:31

And the house of Israel called its name Manna. And it was like white coriander seed, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.

“Manna” means, “What is it?” God proved over and over His faithfulness to His people. Yet the word “murmur” is found eight times in this chapter. Are Christians much different now from the Israelites of 1500 BC? By God’s grace we are declared, “A new creation; old things have passed away, behold all things have become new” (2 Cor 5:17). We need to confess daily that the “old” is dead and like the Manna from yesterday, it is stinking rotten. Also, every morning if we want fresh bread, confess the new life in Christ now. This blog, the daily TV ministry of 100 Huntley Street, our Bible reading and prayer, will definitely help us. In John 6, Jesus declared that He is the true Bread from Heaven. Partake of Him daily and be healthy and strong. Worship and praise Him without murmuring.


Yes Lord, may I recognize that stale Christianity becomes “wormy,” and is definitely not appetizing to me and to others around me. Thank You for the fresh food which I am eating now. Thank You that my spirit, soul, and body are being nourished as I read and pray. Please give me grace, O Lord, to be consistent. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen!


From 1962 to 1977 we produced and released the weekly Crossroads telecast, and along the way began the weekly telecast for children, Circle Square. During 1976, I could not help but notice that the number 100 kept popping up regularly. When I would open my Bible randomly, there was the number 100. I would happen to look at a street number and there was that number. Finally I got the message. It was time to go daily with the ministry and this would assist God’s people to move up to “100-fold living” as in the parable of Jesus about the sower and the harvest (Matt. 13:3). That meant that I had to become more consistent in my early morning Bible study and prayer. June 15th, 1977, the daily TV ministry began. 35 years later it’s still providing daily manna for 100-fold living. Bon appetite!

Yours for consistenty gathering fresh manna each morning for our well being,

  1. Thank you David for continuing to provide us with your daily manna of thoughts. Isn’t it amazing how there is always something new to be learned every time we come to God’s word? I had no idea that ‘manna’ meant ‘what is it?’ until today. May God continue to bless you and provide you with inspiration daily as we continue our journey through the word.

    • Thank you David for feeding us daily from the Word. For those of us hurrying away and missing the television broadcast, your early morning manna is just what we need to start the day.

  2. Dear Mr. Mainse,

  5. thank you David for bringing us our daily manna…for helping us be renewed, refreshed, and draw closer to the Lord in our daily walk. May the Lord continue to give back to you even more then you pour out to us. You are such a wonderful blessing. Reynold’s photo’s are blessing as well for those of us who will only get to see where the Lord walked via these pictures.

  6. Thank you Lord for supplying David with manna for each day. As the WORD, you come to each one of us as ONE-wonderful. As David found one hundred, I found one thousand twice today; “One thousand beautiful things” by A Mees, one thousand tips and techniques on health and healing in ONE day. What an infinite Lord. Please guide through the use of ONE thousand also. Thank You.
