Flashback: This Week Last Year [2012 Week #12]

Toulouse Montauban Shootings March 2012This week last year the nation of France was rocked by a series of merciless gun attacks on Jewish citizens and members of the French military.

The hate fueled series of events began with deadly attacks on members of the French military on March 11 & 15. On the 19th the gunman struck again opening fire on a group of young Jewish school children who were waiting outside their school.

The horrific chain of events culminated with a thirty hour police standoff and one last gun battle that left the perpetrator dead. In all, seven died and five were injured. [Sources: 1 2].

Clearly, this world is brutally violent. Thankfully for the believer in the Lord Jesus Christ this world is not our home! For He has defeated death and Hell (Revelation 1:18) and we as believers look forward to that day “when the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: ‘Death is swallowed up in victory.’ ‘O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, a who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:54-57 ESV.

During the 12th week of 2012 Digital Sojourner posted a number of interesting articles including:

Two Android Hymn Book Apps


…be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, Ephesians 5:18-19 ESV

In the New Testament we are encouraged to incorporate hymns and spiritual songs into our regular, daily life. While there is no lack of access to “Christian music” today, I believe Paul had something much deeper in mind than simply listening passively to someone else singing. It seems Paul is suggesting that psalms, hymns and spiritual songs should be so deeply embedded in our hearts that we would actual speak to one another in the ‘language’ of spiritual songs.

Paul also indicates that the Spirit filled believer will sing and make melody to the Lord directly from their own heart. Of course, there is nothing wrong in listening to others sing God’s praises… but the Lord desires something far more intimate from His children. He desires each of us to sing and make melody to Him directly from our own hearts… with no middleman! Amazing!

Over the weekend I became aware of two free hymn book apps for Android based mobile devices that you might find helpful:

 


The Believers Hymn Book


Believers Hymn Book App

The Believers Hymn Book is a collection of over 450 spiritual hymns and songs loved and enjoyed by many believers around the world. The app is simple and easy to use with lyrics and tunes for 465 hymns. There are a number of different options for finding specific hymns (such as by first line, author, category, or meter). Unfortunately I found searching by hymn number a bit tricky to use. I’m not sure if this is a device specific problem (Droid DNA) or a larger issue. 2013-01-29 Update: This issue was fixed in a recent update.

Other helpful features include difference screen settings for night and day viewing, and the ability to choose between different text size settings.

The Little Flock Hymn Book (1881)


Little Flock Hymn Book 1881 App

Although the “HYMNS for The Little Flock” hymn book was first published way back in the 1800s the spiritual depth of this collection of hymns is still difficult to match today. The app’s author, KaiserGuy, has done an excellent job in creating an app that is lightening fast, is truly easy to use and offers some great features.

The app includes hymn lyrics and meters that can be accessed by hymn number, author’s name, and first line. The search feature quickly identities all songs with a particular word.

Some of the more innovative features include the ability to view word definitions, swipe left and right to browse hymns numerically, and several different social sharing options.
