Keith Green: "Open Your Arms" Music Performance and Video*

2y ago


A music video* and performance by Keith Green. Keith Gordon Green (October 21, 1953 July 28, 1982) was an American gospel singer, songwriter, musician, and Contemporary Christian Music artist originally from New York having both a Jewish and Christian Science background before he became a born-again Christian. In 1975, he and his wife named Melody began an outreach program in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California, in the San Fernando Valley. They provided housing and care for prostitutes, drug addicts, and the homeless, much to the consternation of their more conservative neighbors. In 1977, this outreach was officially named Last Days Ministries. In 1978, Last Days Ministries (LDM) began publishing the Last Days Newsletter. Originally printed on a few pages of loose paper, the newsletter grew in content to eventually become a "small, colorful magazine," and was renamed in mid-1985 as Last Days Magazine. The magazine featured articles by Green and his wife as well as contemporary Christian authors David Wilkerson, Leonard Ravenhill, and Winkie Pratney, all of whom lived in the area. The publication also later included the reprinted works of classic Christian authors such as Charles Finney, John Wesley, and William Booth and his wife Catherine. Most of the articles were reprinted as tracts. At the peak of its popularity, the Last Days Magazine was sent out to over 300,000 people worldwide. Along with eleven others, Keith Green died on July 28, 1982, when the Cessna 414 leased by Last Days Ministries crashed after takeoff from the private airstrip located on the LDM property. The small two-engine plane was carrying eleven passengers and the pilot, Don Burmeister, for an aerial tour of the LDM property and the surrounding area. Green and two of his children, three year old Josiah, and two year old Bethany, were on board the plane, along with visiting missionaries John and Dede Smalley and their six children.
