2010 April 6 Update


New Community Features

Dear Maranatha Media Subscriber
Just to let you know, that as promised, we have added the ability to manage your own details on the website. You can change email but also connect with other community members, add your picture if you like. You will see a new "Community" menu section has been added with several features.

About half the site is now only availabe to registered users and is visible one you log on.

If you have trouble logging on, make sure you type your username and password by hand and not let your browser just add the detail for you. Some have had trouble with this.

Please invite others to register that you think would benefit from being part of the community. We will have some new contributors writing content soon which I am looking forward to.

This journey has been a wild ride for many of us. If any of you would like to share your journey into finding the Father and Son, please submit it to me for sharing with others. Something no more than about 3 or 4 pages if that is possible.


Identity Wars Facebook Advertising Campaign

Our Advertising Campaign is going well with identity wars on facebook. We now have 360 members on the page and growing. If you have not had a chance to read Identity Wars or watch the DVD series, I invite you to check it out. It was designed to present the gospel as expressed in the 1888 message in a non-technical manner to anyone with a spiritual interest. We ask for your prayers with this process and if possible finanical support for the advertising. You can also become a member on this link

Website Hacked

We had an interesting time last friday afternoon. All my websites went down when the website was infected with a trojan virus. We are still not sure how this ocurred but it motivated us to take some backup action. We will soon have several mirror sites if the first site goes down. More details later.

Recent Articles and Resources

We recently added two documents from Kelvin Cobbin researching the faith of our fathers. Kelvin has done some excellent research and it is worth checking out. Documents are in the Library under the studies section If you have not had a chance to examine some of the Business Session minutes from the 1980 General Conference Session, I invite you to check them out. While a little tedious, there is much to learn.

Food for Thought

I recently came across a quote in the writings of EGW that made me stop and think. It clearly shows how that angels are dependent on Christ for their beauty of person and character, she then connects this fact to the knowledge of the begotten Son and how Satan and the angels wanted to obscure this fact. Here is the quote

"Angels were expelled from heaven because they would not work in harmony with God. They fell from their high estate because they wanted to be exalted. They had come to exalt themselves, and they forgot that their beauty of person and of character came from the Lord Jesus. This fact the [fallen] angels would obscure, that Christ was the only begotten Son of God, and they came to consider that they were not to consult Christ."? TDG 128 - Letter 42, April 29, 1910 to Elder D.A Parsons.

It is most interesting to see the link between an obscuring of the only begotten Son and the desire for self exaltation. Should it be a surprise to us today that men are inspired to obscure that Jesus is the Begotten Son of God?

As Jesus said:

Joh 5:43,44? I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

Psa 36:9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

?Said the angel, "Think ye that the Father yielded up His dearly beloved Son without a struggle? No, no." It was even a struggle with the God of heaven, whether to let guilty man perish, or to give His darling Son to die for them.? EW 127 (1882)
