Arise! 2/3

hope4bathMessages

In the second of our meditations this week about those Jesus raised from the dead, we are reminded from the outset, that death is no respecter of persons. It can ‘knock’ at any door’, and at any time. Are you prepared for that prospect? The ruler of the synagogue’s daughter Mark chapter 5 verses 22-24; ….  Read More

Arise! 1/3

hope4bathMessages

During the Easter period we have seen that the events of Easter did not end at the cross. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day and returned to Heaven, from whence He came. In three meditations this week, we will consider three miracles from the New Testament, when Jesus raised the dead. The ….  Read More

Psalm 71

In You, O Lord, I put my trust; let me never be put to shame. 2 Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape; incline Your ear to me, and save me. 3 Be my strong refuge, to which I may resort continually; You have given the commandment to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress. 4 Deliver me, ….  Read More

This is not a question, Hope after death? But a certainty Hope after death! How can you be so sure, you may well ask; how can I have hope after death?

Secret Disciples

hope4bathMessages

Not all of us are out and out in our faith as Christians; we are secret disciples or followers of Christ. The day Jesus died that all changed for two secret disciples: ‘After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away ….  Read More

And It Was Night!

‘I (God) will make the sun to go down at noon, and I will DARKEN the earth in broad daylight’, Amos chapter 8 verse 9. Amos was not speaking prophetically about the death of Jesus, but his words are an amazingly accurate picture of the events when Christ died. Darkness is often linked with judgment ….  Read More

O Wondrous Hour!

hope4bathMessages

At Easter time, Christians’ thoughts focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus. In today’s meditation, I invite you to focus with me on one hour, i.e., THE NINTH HOUR. In Bible times this was 3pm, which for the Jews was the hour of prayer and the time of the evening sacrifice. • Elijah, the ….  Read More

Loosing The Colt

hope4bathMessages

As we approach Easter, let us start by considering one of ‘the unsung heroes’ of the story – ‘a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat’, Luke chapter 19 verse 20. It will be helpful to read Luke chapter 19 verses 29-40. WHAT LESSONS CAN THE COLT TEACH US? REDEMPTION (RANSOM). Interestingly, we ….  Read More

Psalm 70

Make haste, O God, to deliver me! Make haste to help me, O Lord! 2 Let them be ashamed and confounded who seek my life; let them be turned back and confused who desire my hurt. 3 Let them be turned back because of their shame, who say, “Aha, aha!” 4 Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad ….  Read More
