The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael\'s story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".
I am posting some pictures of my activities today, posting Sony Campaign notes at the Harford Mall, but that is not what tonight\'s blog is about. Tonight, I am giving Michael some room to talk.
Tonight I am taking a break and I am going to let him talk tonight through the web page of a friend of mine. But first, I want to share this with you:
One day . . . a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country, so he could have his son see how poor country people live.
They stayed one day and one night in the home of a very humble farmer. At the end of the trip, and when they were back home, the father asked his son, "What did you think of the trip?"
Then the father asked his son, "Did you notice how poor they were?"
The son responded, "I learned that we have one dog in our house, and they have four.
Also, we have a fountain in our garden, but they have a stream that has no end.
And we have imported lamps in our garden . . . where they have the stars!
And our garden goes to the edge of our property. But they have the entire horizon as their back yard!"
His son then said, "Thank you dad for showing me how poor we really are."
Isn\'t it true that all depends on the lens you use to see life?
One can ask himself what would happen if we give thanks for what we have instead of always asking for more.
Michael’s faith is probably one of his most prominent qualities among fans that really know who he was as a person
In early July of last year, as I was tearing through Michael interviews trying to get to know him, the first thing I noticed is that in every interview, Michael mentioned, discussed, advocated and/or praised God. I had never known this about him before June 25th. I knew he loved children and had talked about going to church, but I never knew he was such an example to follow in faith.
I remember my jaw dropped when I heard him, for the first time, try to explain to a lawyer in a deposition that Jesus said to love children and to be like children when we come to him. I back-tracked and replayed that part of the deposition a number of times.
I saw it in every single televised interview that was posted on YouTube. For eight hours that day, I watched and re-watched parts of interviews. Then I cried, and I cried and I cried.
I have been a child of Christ since I was twelve years old. I have read the Bible numerous times and had never, ever heard what Jesus said put the way Michael had put it. It was so easy to understand. Here I thought I had it and I never really did.
Michael was the way Jesus wanted us to be . . . innocent, giving, child-like in his trust, honest and loving, like only children knew how to be. That was what Jesus was talking about in Matthew, and Luke and John.
It was during this stretch of time, over the week after the fourth of July, watching these interviews, that I realized that Michael was indeed in Heaven. It was then I thanked God for what Michael was showing me.
I began doing searches on Michael in regard to his faith. Michael was not boxed in by a religion or a church. Yes, he got his start in his mother’s church with Jehovah’s Witnesses, but he read the Bible on his own. When J.W. wanted to box Michael in, Michael ex-communicated himself from the Jehovah’s Witnesses church.
Michael’s reasoning as per this article, was that he wanted to do what God told him to do, not what a church told him to do. He also discussed this in the Schmuley tapes.
I never had so much respect for a man in my life, aside from my husband, in taking the courage to do what he did. When you profess faith in God, it means exercising that faith. You live what you believe. Michael took his cues from God. He prayed often during the day and read his Bible. Asking God what he wants you to do from day to day is the kind of Blind faith Jesus talks about with his disciples.
It was also during the subsequent weeks that I decided to really delve into Michael’s song lyrics . . . lyrics that for the most part, I had been ignorant of, up until then.
One of the web pages I found while searching on Michael and his faith in God and Christ, was this one:
Some of the quotes I picked up from this page:
“When meeting or even around Michael, there was certainly an aura. It was quite incredible. And it wasn\'t just when meeting him, it often continued afterwards too. I distinctly remember after a meeting with him in Tenerife, I just had this tremendous sense of love for everyone. I just wanted to love people. Michael hadn\'t spoken directly about this to me, but it was almost as if that aura around him had somehow rubbed off on me, if that makes sense?”
“Even those fans who never met Michael often felt a deep connection with him. He had that capacity to draw you close, to mesmerize you with his love and compassion, but also with his aura, which he always acknowledged was from God Almighty Himself” Dee Pfeiffer
You can read more about her story and meetings with Michael on this page.
Seth Riggs - Vocal coach for Michael: “"You know, there was one moment. I was playing a piano, and he was standing next to me. All of a sudden, he stretched his hands, looking upwards. It seemed to me that it was very important to him. That’s why I left the room and switched the light off. After half an hour I came back to the room. He was whispering: “Thank you for my talent. Thank you for everything I’ve got. Thank you for all the people who love me. Tell me what I should do, and I’ll do it.” It seemed to me that it was the moment of his communication with God."
If you want a reason to fall in love with this man all over again, I implore you to read Debbie’s page on his faith. Then, start reading the book that he loved reading so much. Michael would love it! So would God!

We are living in Biblically significant Times. Ironically it was the most persecuted man in modern history that lead me to dig deeper into the Bible and taught me more about God than any other human being on the planet. And that man is Michael Jackson. I started a blog to defend him. I ended up researching him and learned just why they were after him. They did everything they could to shut him down. In the song "Cry" he said "take over for me", so that is what I am doing. God bless that man and his faith and strength
"Like the Bible says. A child should be leader of them all, and to be led by that kind of innocence. Didn\'t Jesus say \'bring on the children?\' Be like the children. Not childish, but child-like. That kind of innocence."
"Children show me in their playful smiles the divine in everyone. This simple goodness shines straight from their hearts and only asks to be lived." Michael Jackson Oprah Winfrey Interview
"I avoid using the term \'religion\', because many people say \'my religion\' this and \'my religion\' that. Why should it be \'my\' religion? I just believe what’s in the Bible with regard to which religion is involved. I simply believe.... I believe in it and I get down on my knees every night and thank God and ask Him to lead the way."
