Today’s Reading: Exodus 16

Click scripture link to read online or HERE to listen online (then click the symbol of the audio speaker above the scripture portion on the right-hand side).

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. – Reynold

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 Corinthians 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 (Matthew 13:3-9). That meant that I had to become more consistent in my early morning Bible study and prayer. On June 15th, 1977, the daily TV ministry began. Over 39 years later, 100 Huntley Street is still providing daily manna for 100-fold living.

Yours for consistently gathering fresh manna daily for our well being,


P.S. This coming week the Crossroads Ministry is presenting on the 100 Huntley Street telecast, “ANSWER THE CALL.” By September 1st we need the best gifts friends can give in order to finish the business year, AUGUST 31ST, well. Please encourage our new Chief Executive Officer, Lorna Dueck. Lorna was my co-host from 1994 to 2002. Crossroads helped Lorna launch Context, and while she will continue to host that telecast, she stepped aside as President of that ministry she founded. Dear, dear Lorna has taken on a very heavy load here at Crossroads and “YES TV.” Our TV network has transmitters in five cities now, as well as cable and satellite coverage. I have two requests. First, please pray fervently for Lorna!!! And second, you, Norma-Jean and I can take a corner of the load she’s carrying by sending in an offering. Please consider giving Crossroads and Lorna a financial lift if you have not already done so. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! (click here for donation options).

    Moses’s Punishment:
    by Randy Johnson

    Moses, Miriam, Aaron and the children of Israel wandered into the wilderness of Zin.
    The Israelites complained because there was no water, their patience was wearing thin.
    God told Moses to take the rod, call the people and speak to the rock.
    God said there would be enough water for the people and their livestock.
    But instead of speaking to the rock like God commanded, Moses raised his hand and struck it with the rod.
    Water flowed from the rock but Moses was punished because he became angry and didn’t follow the command of God.
    Because Moses didn’t do as God commanded, God wouldn’t let him lead the Israelites into the promised land.
    Moses quickly learned that the best thing to do is to always do as Jehovah God commands.

  3. How unique and beautiful this photo is, Reynold…thanks for the explanation also!! Your photography is definitely a special gift of the Lord:)

  4. Thank you, Reynold, for ALL the great photos. This one is great, also loved the recent one of Masada – one of my favourites!
    May God bless all of you involved in – it is a blessing, a help, a strengthening source of Spiritual nourishment as we look to Jesus daily with thanks. I cannot thank you enough, but may God fill you with His Holy Spirit and keep you faithfully following and leading others to Jesus.

  5. How slow to learn and obey we humans can be: How much better for our well being when we yield in obedience!! Lord HELP, I pray keep my heart and mind soft and yielded unto Your ways!!!

    Yes, Pastor David, thank you for your faithfulness in sharing this fresh manna with us daily; it is not wormy and stinky, but fresh and pure and whole!!! May God continue to bless and refresh you and Norma-Jean and your family in and through this ministry and all you do. Amen!!

    Lord God I pray for Lorna Dueck and all the staff for wisdom and refreshing as they minister in bringing forth your Word through 100Huntly Street and YesTV. Jesus I pray this in Your Holy Name, Amen!!!

  6. The rock columns in Reynold’s photo resemble people in a long line wearing robes. I initially thought they were sculptures rather than natural rock formations. It brings to mind the Exodus. Blessings
