Modern Manna Ministries has sought for years to educate people in God’s principles of health and healing through evidence-based health and Biblical principles. We faithfully strive to help people through four main avenues.
Second, to preaching the gospel message of salvation, our goal is to proclaim the good news of better health through obedience, both physically, mentally, and spiritually, to God’s Health Plan as a foundation to maintaining health and vitality.
We believe that disease can be prevented if we would eat Manna from heaven once again. Modern Manna is a “modern-day” heavenly, health message that is filled with practical instruction for the people of God. 3 John 2
We promise to abide by the Word of God, the written revelation of the “Living Bread,” to spread the health and gospel message to the world like the leaves of Autumn. 1 Corinthians 9:23
Modern Manna is a Bible-believing, non-profit organization whose purpose is to spread the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12 to all nations and peoples. This last day message is “to make ready a people” (Luke 1:17) prepared for the soon coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. First and foremost, it is a message of salvation through grace, which is freely offered to everyone who will accept God’s power to transform him or her from a child of disobedience into a righteous son or daughter of God.
For our example, Jesus has shown that our labor for the salvation of mankind should include the restoration of the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. The Bible says, “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching… preaching… the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and… disease.” (Matt.4:23, emphasis mine).
We do not believe that the health message is the gospel but that it is the “right arm of the gospel.” It gives His ambassadors a more effective representation and presentation of the gospel God has given them to proclaim to the world when they radiate health that gives them the ability, mentally, to understand the gospel properly, and bodily, the physical strength to carry out their mission effectively. We do believe that our bodies are “the temple of the Holy Ghost” (1 Cor. 6:19), and we are not to defile them!
The world is in a depraved state and is in desperate need of the Bible temperance message (see Gal. 5:23; 2 Pet. 1:6; Acts 24:25; 1 Cor. 9:25; Titus 2:2), in order for its hearers to appropriate the blessings and benefits of the gospel message. The world is filled with sickness and disease because people suffer from excessive amounts of meat, fat, cholesterol, sugar, alcohol, tobacco, and drugs. Many Christians who claim to have put on “the mind of Christ” are unwitting slaves to their appetites and passions.
Modern Manna believes that disease could be prevented if we would eat of the Manna from heaven again. Modern Manna is a “modern-day” heavenly, health message that is filled with practical instruction for the people of God. It advocates a very simple, natural vegetarian fare (Gen. 1:29) just as God provided His people during their Exodus from Egypt when He first tried to lead them into the Promised Land. May we not murmur and lust for the fleshpots of Egypt (as ancient Israel did), especially when the animals are so sick themselves! “The world needs today what it needed nineteen hundred years ago—a revelation of Christ. A great work of reform is demanded, and it is only through the grace of Christ that the work of restoration, physical, mental, and spiritual, can be accomplished.” (The Ministry of Healing, pg. 143, 1905). Incidentally, our needed revelation—Jesus Christ—is called “the Living Bread which came down from heaven.” (John 6:51).
