Good Friday and Easter According to Bloodgood

I’m still a metal head and still a fan of Bloodgood.  Check out this stage presentation of the crucifixion and resurrection (might not be suitable for young children)

I had the pleasure of seeing Bloodgood when I was in college. It was a small show in a fire hall. It was raining and we were waiting outside to be let in, all getting wet and feeling pretty miserable. The band showed up and had them let us in immediately to get out of the rain. After a few minutes, they came out and started playing and everyone got excited. When they finished the song, Les (the lead singer) told us that they would be right back after they got their “rock and roll clothes” on. Everyone then realized that it had only been the sound check. Normally, that would have happened long before anyone came in, but the band refused to let us stay out in the rain. They performed these two songs too (“Crucify” and “The Messiah”). Les dressed up like Pilate but there was none of the theatrics that appeared in their bigger concerts (like in this video). It was still very powerful. Genuinely good God loving people, doing it for all the right reasons. Sadly, Les Calrson tragically and unexpectedly lost his son shortly after releasing their new CD .  May the hope of the resurrection comfort his family this Easter.

 

Happy Easter

Just wanted to leave a short note to wish everyone a blessed Easter as we remember and celebrate the resurrection. May God help us to fully understand and embrace the significance of Christ’s resurrection and the new life and promise of resurrection that we have as a result. May God strengthen us each day to live in resurrection newness of life and to magnify God to others that they may come to desire the new life that God has granted us in His dear Son.

Happy Easter

I will be away until after Easter but wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Resurrection Sunday.

For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the Head over all rule and authority; and in Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ; having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. (Col. 2:9-12 emphasis mine)

In Him alone do we have life now and forever!

God Bless,
Ben
