A FRESH START

Today’s Reading: Exodus 16

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.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

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!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

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,

David

  1. Thank you Ron, Anne and Reynold for continuing to send fresh manna to us everyday. I was reminded this morning that the old is dead and all things have become new. Once we confess our sins we are forgiven, so there is no need to keep remembering them. Have a Blessed day everyone. Eleanor M.

    • yes darling Eleanor! That is exactly what makes our Lord God One of a Kind; when we confess our sins daily as His Word says to do; we tell God we are sorry and ask Him to forgive us, HE DOES RIGHT THEN AND THERE! WE ARE COMPLETELY FORGIVEN; NOT JUST A LITTLE BIT; WE ARE TOTALLY FORGIVEN FOR THOSE SINS; AND HE NEVER REMEMBERS THEM ANYMORE.
      AS far as the east is from the west, that is how are sins are forgiven….
      my dad could not forget my sins; he would bring things up from years back and I found it so horrible to be able to be a happy child because he just could not let go….yet……he fully expected God to completely forgive him…..

      the Lord’s Prayer is wonderful and that is why Jesus taught it because it covers every aspect of our lives!
      ..And forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us!..it is done!

  2. I know it is tough to match a picture to your subject (from experience) but all you can do is your best so don’t sweat it.
    Yesterday,Gerry Morgan delivered a message on the importance of prayer in making changes in our church and that is what our church needs more of.Gerry pastored a good sized Pentecostal church in Hamilton years ago in which he and David had a few friendly competitions.He related this and other events (privately) that happened very much as David would relate how God used other humans to make-it-happen.(A radio phone-in show,for one.)Gerry’s daughter blessed us with a beautiful voice and her 5 year old daughter sang ‘Jesus Loves Me’,wow, accompanied by Gerry’s wife on the piano.He and Irene live in Madoc,Ont.
    When you accept Jesus into your life,you are allowing His holy Spirit (Remember what Jesus said.) to use you so allow Him to do so.Most of the time you will not feel Him there but He’s cleaning His temple. God bless

    Philippians 1:6 New International Version (NIV)
    6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

  3. Praise the Lord, our wonderful God and Saviour for moving powerfully then and moving powerfully, now! Prayers are being answered right now in my family!!! Thanks to the Prayer Line at 100 Huntley for taking my calls from time to time and for their prayers and thank you for your prayers dear friends of 100 Words…“God works in a mysterious way His wonders to perform!”

  4. Yes, thank you Ron and Ann and Reynold for continuing to provide this daily manna. What a blessing to receive this fresh manna daily!!

  5. William your blog is so pleasant and comforting!
    I got a call from an uncle that I have not heard from in years! Please pray that I can talk to him without any issues from the past coming forward! He is 86; was a top notch musician, I am thankful that he called.
    tonight at the pool I met Daniel a Christian who prayed for me and my daughter and a financial breakthrough for me.Again another very pleasant surprise! It was great!
    Thank you Lord for this meeting…..

  6. I am still wondering why the prayer line has changed…there is no one to pray with a person, there is only a recorded message….not the same..what do others think….
