Music Video: Beautiful Eulogy – Vital Lens

Beautiful Eulogy is back at it! They are in the middle of recording their EP, Instruments of Mercy. They have released this video, Vital Lens, which will be on that album.

Yup, this is a re-introduction plus some practical perspective
for those of us indeed who are in need of complete vision correction
the only thing that’s required is a lens that’s genuinely objective
and a minute of your time to wrap your mind around divine perception
because even the most mindless and spiritually blind can be the spectator in the theater of God’s magnificent design
if you would incline your ears and your eyes to these sounds and these signs / we would attempt to rightly refine and align your crooked sight, but we’re not implying
that a sunset or an ocean can begin to set in mind what the son of man began to set in redemptive motion
but morals, meaning and devotion, heart, mind and emotion, substance, significance and truth cannot be explained or reduced to a big bang explosion
because His character and nature cannot be known through natural revelation or shown through random acts or figments of your imagination
we, the Beautiful Eulogy, attempt to communicate audibly and visually to help you hear and see the glory of God clearly
My life is in the hands of Your love everlasting
I start where I finish, pick it back up where I left it
I’m just a man of unclean lips, I’ve only seen a glimpse
but everywhere I look I see His finger prints, all things were made through Him
we received His revelation so we reflect it when we breathe
and the concepts we conceive are born of spiritual seed
manifest in the material realm as musical composition
the rhythm of heart beats transformed by the Gospel and Godly wisdom
I’m an instrument of His mercy, unworthy but still He uses me
the beauty of the eulogy, through His death we are truly free
free indeed, the condemnation and the bondage
of our sin was abolished on the cross & He alone accomplished it
God made Himself known exposing His own nature
and His glory through His son, the revelation of Our Savior
the fullness of God born in human form, deity in the flesh
we need the Spirit and the Word to open our eyes so we can see correct – the Vital Lens

Music Video: For Today – Flesh and Blood

From the heart of the Midwest, For Today is a beast whose ferocity and aggression is rivaled only by its poise and focus. The band stands by the fact that “This has nothing to do with music and everything to do with our faith in Christ.”. On April 2, they released “Prevailer”. In the past week the album has risen to #47 on the Billboard 200 chart and is #2 on the Hard Music chart. If you have not already picked up the album we encourage you to. Amazon / iTunes

It’s always good to know what the artist is talking about. Here are the lyrics for Flesh and Blood:

I won’t go back the way I came
There is no turning back.
I’d walked away from everything that could save me.
I won’t go back the way I came
There is no turning back.
I once was blind, but now I see things clearly.
I’ll never see the world the same way.
The words of truth within this Man forever changed me.

Is He just flesh and blood, or is there more to the power I see?
Filled with the strength of God, but He moves and breathes as a man, just like me.
When the Spirit overcomes the flesh
You’ll see One man with power over death.

So let me die.
And let the saints rise.
With hands like mine, He turned water to wine.
Let me die.
And let the saints rise.
With hands like mine, He gave sight to the blind
And He opened up my eyes.

I won’t go back the way I came.
There is no turning back
I’d walked away from everything that could save me.
I won’t go back the way I came
There is no turning back
I once was blind, but now I see things clearly.
I’ll never see the world the same way.
The words of truth within this Man forever changed me.

Break the chains that bind me.
Flesh and blood, filled with the fire of God,
Come break the chains of my bondage.
Flesh and blood, filled with the fire of God,
Deliver us from the darkness.

How could a man like me be a man that’s so unlike me?
The words you say got me turned away from the man I might be.
My hands can build, but your hands can create.
My hands can help, but your hands can save.

I won’t go back the way I came
There is no turning back.
I’d walked away from everything that could save me.
I won’t go back the way I came
There is no turning back.
I once was blind, but now I see things clearly.
I’ll never see the world the same way.
The words of truth within this Man forever changed me.

The blind will see flesh and blood, filled with the fire of God.
Come break the chains of my bondage.
Flesh and blood, filled with the fire of God,
Deliver us from the darkness.

Easter Sunday | Odd Thomas – Reality of the Ressurection

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

Matthew 28:1-7

Good Friday | Odd Thomas – The Cup & Crucifixtion

“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us & sent His son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1 Jn 4:10
