NOTE from Ron Mainse: My Dad does not know that I’m adding this to his blog, but I wanted all of his blog-reader friends to know that today is a special day…Dad’s 80th birthday! Also, tomorrow is my Mom’s birthday (Norma-Jean Mainse)…so Happy Birthday Dad & Mom! Thanks for continuing to be a blessing to so many. I love you!

Yesterday’s 100 Huntley Street was a special 80th birthday celebration for Dad. You can watch the entire hour HERE.  Friends, why not send a birthday greeting today (for Dad) and tomorrow (for Mom)? You can post it as a comment on the blog at (If you’re new to doing that, just click on the “Comments” bubble at the top. You can read comments of others and simply scroll to the bottom of the comments to leave your own message).



Today’s Reading: Exodus 8

Key Verse: Exodus 8:13a

So the Lord did according to the word of Moses.


Moses spoke, and God backed him up with supernatural power. Some have used this reality to get God to do their will. No, no, we are to do God’s will. First we find out the will of God, and then we speak, and God acts accordingly. Jesus’ word was always effective, 100% of the time. Why? Because He could say, “The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do” (John 5:19). Jesus got up very early each morning to spend time with His Father in prayer (Mark 1:35). Jesus functioned as a Man filled with the Holy Spirit. He was, is, and ever shall be fully God, but He laid aside the exercise of His Diety. He took time to find His Father’s plan for the new day, and then did what His Father wanted Him to do. This is also the way we can know what to speak, and God will do that which we speak as He did for Moses.


Father God, I want what You want. Help me to speak out that which You give me to speak so that “Your will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” I pray this in the Name of Jesus Who always, without fail, did Your perfect will. Amen!


I remember Norma-Jean coming home with a booklet entitled, “Hung by the Tongue.” It pointed out the power of our words for good or evil, for positive or negative results. Jesus never ever used His essential divinity for selfish purposes. He lived as a Holy Spirit-filled Human Being. The temptation of Jesus is an example of this (Matthew 4:3-4). He could’ve turned the stones into bread as Satan suggested, but He refused to help Himself in this way. It’s sad to report that there are those today who claim “prosperity” for themselves, twisting the Scriptures, seeking to manipulate God for their own purposes, taking advantage of their position of influence to manipulate people into giving sacrifically so that the manipulator may prosper. Simon the sorcerer did this. Please look this up as I have done (Acts 8:9-25). Run from those who, like Simon, are “claiming to be someone great,” and (as verse 10 says), “All gave heed to him from the least to the greatest saying, ‘This man is the great power of God.'”

Yours for hearing from God each morning and then speaking and doing His will,

Reading your blog has helped me to look forward to learning something new each day and being challenged to apply it. Thank you so much! Have a wonderful day and a year where you continue to experience God’s direction and presence!

    • Happy wonderful birthday, David (and Norma-Jean, tomorrow). I pray God’s continued blessing on both of your lives. I’m a second generation viewer of your show; my mom being the first who always had our TV tuned in to your program as we prepared to go to church on Sunday mornings. You have been such a genuine and Godly influence on so many lives, and i want to thank you for all the ways that you’ve lead and encouraged me as well as the countless others who have been blessed by your ministry. Thank you, Heavenly Father, for using David for Your glory!

  4. Happy birthday David I was fortunate to be at the celebration yesterday had a ticket for general admission but fortunate to be asked to come into studio. Such a blessing so emotional filled with the love of God and the blessed Holy Spirit. Happy Birthday may your day be filled with Love Joy and Peace.
    God Bless Dale

    • I think you got my seat in the studio, Dale! I was looking forward to being there but ended up in hospital. I believe a change in medications will alleviate some of the symptoms. I did get to see it on T.V. though and was happy about that. Happy birthday to the great couple and to your up-coming wedding anniversary, – wonderful blessings. (mine was also in September).

  5. Happy Birthday today to you David and what a lovely party for you.
    Happy Birthday Norma – Jean tomorrow thank you for both of you the wonderful work- for all to hear the gospel. Have a wonderful day filled with joy and love.

  6. Just a PS to the comment I made a few minutes ago. I just reread the part of Exodus 7 where it says Moses was 80 years old when he spoke to Pharoah. Nice timing for that reading to come up at David’s 80th birthday!

  7. Happy Birthday David. Just a sentiment from one of the millions who have been impacted by the Gospel through your ministry. Thank you for your example.

  8. Thank you for your faithfulness and devotion. You are a wonderful blessing and example of one who reflects the love of Christ to everyone. I pray that the Lord will fill you with joy as you celebrate your birthday and Norma-Jean’s with family and friends.

  9. Happy Birthday David and Norma Jean. Early in the morning I so often think about you David doing this bloc for the so many people and be preparing this for us and to read about your experiences in life what a blessing this is for me.

    I am so very grateful to God for sparing your life to see another milestone birthday. Enjoy every minute of this day with your family.

  12. Hi Brother Mainse.
    When I got saved in 1980 I will never forget the impact you had in my life, I remember walking the halls of 100 Huntley street, you introduced yourself and asked me who I was, the moment you found out I was new and just gave my life to the Lord, you stopped and pray for me. Coming from a life in the world I never experience genuine love, God’s love, from that moment I was hooked. Came by huntley street almost everyday because I wanted to feel that love, I would sneak in to the studio and would feel that strong anointing of God there, the place where millions of people would be touched. I want to than you for being the first to pray for me, taking your time that day for a young 23 year old boy, and causing that young man to stay hooked to Jesus ever since till today. Happy Birthday to you and your lovely wife and may God pour into you and family His mighty blessing and love. Thank you for giving your life for people like myself. Your brother in Christ, John Arancibia

  73. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAVID . I really enjoy your pictures, comments, and the opportunity to listen to scripture each morning. Thank you!

  74. Happy Birthday David & Norma-Jean.
    God has blessed you as a couple, as a family and a life long ministry.
    Thank God for ‘the right partner’ in our lives. “How can two walk together unless they agree” – have same purpose and goals – walking with each other – walking with God – moving forward in ministry;. Norma-Jean has also been a significant key in all that has been accomplished through 100 Huntley Street.
    Great program on Friday celebrating David’s 80th Birthday. A Great tribute!
    Also, it is still very important for David & Norma-Jean to appear on 100 Huntley Street from time to time. God continues to use their presence to inspirie & to bless.
    It is a great decision by Lorna to give David a desk, a chair and a telephone and a task to speak to heads of denominations and others – uniting hearts in the Spirit of God – encouraging intercessory prayer – encouraging and crying out for revival in our hearts and across our county. A reminder of the prayer of Habakkuk, “O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years!. In the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy”. Hab.3:1-2 KJV. Maybe the bloggers can get a more information on what David will be doing so that can more effectively pray for him. “This is the day the Lord hath made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!”
    To God be the Glory, great things He hath Done!”

  75. Happy Birthday to you and Norma Jean tomorrow. May the Grace and peace of His Holy Spirit bless this day,because you are someone precious in His eyes.
    i also follow your blog daily.
    thank you Sally

  76. Happy Birthday to David and Norma Jean . Thank you for your faithfulness. You and blessed me and countless others through your ministry and obedience to the calling the Lord has put on your life. You are very precious people.

  77. Happy Birthday David, it has been such a privilege for us to be able to learn so much from your devotionals, and I pray that God will continue to touch your physically and spiritually, and emotionally as well. I pray that you have many many more great years ahead, as we continue to learn from under your leadership. God Bless. Have a great day!

  78. Happy 80th Birthday to you David & happy birthday to you tomorrow Norma Jean. I love reading your daily blogs & loved watching your birthday celebration. What a blessing you have been to us.

  93. Dear Reverend Mainse,

    Please note,

    The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles says no abortion.
    The Bible says God hates divorce.

    But many Protestant women voted Liberal in the latest federal election.

    They are pro-divorce and pro-abortion.

    It is some nonsense about freedom in Christ.

    Reverends who marry these women get muzzled and don’t speak about the
    Evils of abortion and divorce.

    I guess you can please women or God.

    Try to do both.

    Please your wife and children, but please God more.

    Reverends, become un-muzzled and work with government, toward reducing the amount of time of a pregnancy when an abortion can be done with a law.

    This will help your family line.
    You are Conservative, right.



    Paul Treciokas
    Canadian Citizen
    Please keep on.

  94. Wishing David and Norma Jean Mainse Very Happy and Blessed Birthdays!! Thankful for your years of faithfulness and service. Much blessings!

  95. I am sending a special birthday blessing to you, David and Norma Jean. You have blessed me and my family for many years. I believe, we got our first TV about 37 years ago and have watched your program for that long. It was our favorite TV program and still is, and now since you started the Daily Blog, I have been blessed most everyday as I read it before my breakfast, as a rule. My husband went to be with the Lord in 2012. When my journey here is ended I too will see my wonderful Lord and Saviour face to face. What a day that will be!!!
    Thank you so much for the blessing you have been and still are to me and many others. With love and prayers, Anne Bargen

  96. Happy birthday David and Norma Jean!!

    From someone who’s been watching you program since the 70’s
    God bless

  97. Happy Birthday David and Norma Jean. So wonderful to celebrate the two of you and to thank you for all you have done for the church, the lost and the kingdom of God over the decades.

We pray God’s continued blessing and strength, love, joy and peace be your portions in the coming year. Again, many thanks for all you do, Flo

  98. Happy Birthday David and Norma Jean. My parents also celebrated their birthdays together…Oct. 12&13. It was always so special for them.
    We were with you on the Israel tour in 2012 and I clearly recall the Lord saying he would heal you and give you many more fruitful years. Praise God…He is true to His promises and faithful to His Word. Here you are four years later celebrating your 80th birthday. What an amazing God we serve. Thank you for your example of a true servant of Jesus. You have shown the way with grace and humility. Blessings and joy to you and your beloved family.

  99. HAPPY 80th birthday David. May GOD continue to bless you as you continue to faithfully serve HIM. GOD bless Norma-Jean as well on her 77th Birthday. May GOD continue to bless you both as you celebrate this milestone in your lives and ministries.

  100. Have a blessed birthday, David and Norma Jean! Thank you for sharing your many spiritual gifts with people all over the world. What a very fruitful lifetime of service! I am grateful and praise God for you both.

  101. I thank the Lord for you and the manner you continually let Him use you. I send a semi-humorous comment on turning 80.

    Life is great in your 80’s

    I have good news for you. The first 80 years of your life are the hardest. The second 80 are just a succession of birthday parties.

    Once you reach 80, you’ve got it made. Everyone wants to carry your luggage, help you up the stairs, find you a seat, get you a cup of coffee. Everyone is so nice. And, if you forget your name, or anyone else’s name, or an appointment, or your own telephone number, or promise to be three places at the same time, or you can’t remember how many grandchildren you have, you need only explain that you’re 80. 

    Being 80 is a lot better than being 70. At 70, people are mad at you for everything – they want you to do everything, and know everything and blame you for everything. If you act foolishly, you’re in your second childhood. Everyone is looking at you for symptoms of softening of the brain.

    Being 70 is no fun at all. At that age, people expect you to retire and complain about your arthritis. But if you survive until you’re 80 everyone is surprised that you are still alive. They treat you with respect and kindness, just for having lived so long. Actually, they seem astonished that you can walk and talk sensibly.

    So please folks, try to make it to 80; it’s the best time of your life for people forgive you for anything. If you ask me, life begins at 80!

  102. Happy Birthday David and Norma-Jean.I am very thankful for you and for Crossroads.You are in my prayers everyday! Thank you.

  108. Happy birthday David and Norma Jean! We share the same birthday month and I am a little bit younger! I have been watching 100Huntley Street for many years since I have been on disability for over 27years. Knowing God more intimately has helped me get through my life.
