Here is a sample of one of the hymns: Blessed Assurance on Hymnpod

This hymn was composed in 1873. Phoebe Knapp was a close friend of Fanny Crosby. Phoebe lived in a luxurious mansion, whilst Fanny lived in the Manhattan slums and worked in rescue missions. Fanny was a frequent visitor to Phoebe.

One day in 1873, Phoebe played a tune on the piano whilst Fanny listened. In Fanny’s own words, “My friend, Mrs. Joseph F. Knapp, composed a melody and played it over to me two or three times on the piano. She then asked what it said. I replied, ‘Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!’”.

Notice the many references to sight in this hymn, even though Fanny was blind. Fanny may have been physically blind, but she had spiritual eyes that were constantly fixed on the Saviour. Amen!

Lyrics: Fanny J. Crosby
Music: Phoebe P. Knapp

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels, descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

And of course, the page on Hymnpod has a player for this song.

Tope Koleoso – Spiritual Warfare from the Desiring God Pastor’s Conference

Spiritual Warfare

from David Mathis at Desiring God –
If you think spiritual warfare is irrelevant to you, you may already be losing the battle… At least you’re ripe for Satan’s picking.

Demons have a notorious way of acclimatizing to where they are, warns Tope Koleoso, pastor of Jubilee Church in London. And in secular Western society, this means playing right into our neglect and diminishing of the supernatural.

But Ephesians 6, and the rest of the Scriptures, would have us stay aware of the unseen realm, and remember that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against . . . the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). It is not Christian to suppress the supernatural.
