“Maranatha (either מרנא תא: maranâ’ thâ’ or מרן אתא: maran ‘athâ’) is an Aramaic word occurring twice in the New Testament. It is transliterated into Greek letters rather than translated, and is found at the end of Paul’s First Epistle to the Corinthians (1 Cor 16:22). The NRSV translates it as: Our Lord, come! the NIV translates: Come, O Lord; the NAB notes: As understood here (O Lord, come!), it is a prayer for the early return of Christ. If the Aramaic words are divided differently (Maran atha, Our Lord has come), it becomes a credal declaration. The former interpretation is supported by what appears to be a Greek equivalent of this acclamation in Book of Revelation 22:20 Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” The Maranatha Gospel Media Ministries believes the whole Bible to be completely and equally inspired, and that it is the written Word of God. The MGM Ministries has adopted the following Declaration of Faith as its standard and official expression of its doctrine.
