Marana tha Ministries is the Lord’s corporation. He gave the direction to start it because He wants to return to be with us always and to unite Heaven and earth, but He cannot do so until the good news of the Kingdom is preached to every nation. Matthew 24:14. And that is up to us. So He is waiting on us to fulfill the great commission so He can return.
He gave it the name Marana tha, divided in that manner because that is the Aramaic word which translates: O, our Lord, Come! A cry to Him in the imperative to return. Blessed are all those who look forward to His coming!
At first, the directive seemed to be to get the Word out about the good news of the Kingdom and the Name of Jesus to everyone and anyone starting in Honolulu. We went on Olelo TV with a show called “Good News for You” that airs weekly on Channel 55 (Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. and Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m.) and have three Bible studies a week plus Sunday School teaching and prison ministry four times a month. But then one day the Lord revealed where Marana tha Ministries’ particular ministry would be directed: Israel. The descendants of Abraham in the flesh. What a surprise!
Jesus also is one in the flesh with Israel. He came as a Hebrew of the tribe of Judah, a descendant of David. They are His kinsfolk, His brethren, His relatives in the flesh.
When God took flesh it was as a descendant of Abraham. Jesus is Abraham’s seed, promised to Abraham by God, that blessed all nations of the earth. In Jesus, all believers become descendants of Abraham. He is the fulfillment of the Covenant with Abraham, first foretold to Adam (Genesis 3:15). The seed of the woman that would crush the serpent’s head.
The Israelites are the descendants of Abraham in the flesh, but those who have not believed on Jesus have not been reborn in spirit. They are still a chosen people, beloved by God as His own family, though they are not a saved people. They are still relatives of the Lord in the flesh. He took bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh. And He has given them the land of Israel.
The Lord God revealed that the family table in Heaven will not be complete without His family, the Hebrew people. The ones who are descendants of the patriarchs from whom Christ was born according to the flesh. Romans 9:5. Children of the promise. How He loves them! How He longs for them to come to the Messiah and receive salvation!
God’s gifts and His calling are irrevocable. They have cut themselves off from the root by their unbelief but God can graft them in again if they do not continue in unbelief. The feast in Heaven needs them too, there will be empty chairs without them.
The Lord revealed that Marana tha Ministries is to go to His family. To tell them God is one of them in the flesh. That they are His family. To bring them to Him again. To light up the way to Him for them.
He wants His family grafted back in—the place is still there for them. They will be saved. Romans 11:26. But how can they believe unless they have heard and they will only hear if someone is sent to preach to them. Romans 10:14-21. Marana tha is the one to go.
Here I am Lord, send me. Isaiah 6:8.
To begin this mission, God has given the president of Marana tha Ministries, Bonnie L. Moore, songs for the people of Israel to tell them about His love and longing for them. There are now sixteen songs particularly for them (and for everyone as they are words from the Psalms and the Prophets). These are for the lost sheep of the House of Israel, saying the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, repent and believe in the Good News!
So the Israeli Collection – Jerusalem Rose of Wonderful Songs was directed by God and He even gave the title and the cover design to Bonnie. We have put a picture of that design on this page.

This CD, along with five other CDs that are all collections of Wonderful Songs as directed and designed by the Lord, is available for purchase at www.wonderfulsongscollection.com.
The Lord also has Bonnie writing a book that takes the prophecies and feasts of the Old Covenant and shows are they are all fulfilled in Jesus. And He graciously sent her to Israel for the summer of 2013 to study Biblical Hebrew at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
And now there is a new song: Yehudah! And it is filled with the beauty of prophecy. And we have translated it to Hebrew and begun the video of Yehudah. Read about it on the page about our new project.
The medley of short segments of songs playing are all from the Israeli Collection CD of Wonderful Songs, all words and music by Bonnie L. Moore, © 2008-2010 Bonnie L. Moore.
