March 1988


Joseph Schimmel

Michael Jackson, a best-selling singer, songwriter, producer,

movie star and dancer, is the uncontested, outstanding male recording

star of the 80's.

In February of 1984 he was awarded an unprecedented

eight Grammy awards, a feat never before accomplished in Grammy

history. At that point his album Thriller had become the biggest

selling solo album ever, an album that covered everything from sexual

fantasy to demon possession.

Michael Jackson's life offstage has been

no less fantastic than his life onstage. Throughout the years he has

reportedly done everything from collecting mannequins and attempting to

purchase the bone of the Elephant an to spending part of his life

living in a plastic bubble. Jackson has not only led much of the

already lost world further from the truth and deeper into the fantasy

explosion, but has become one of the most influential proponents of New

Age ideas in the last days.

A favorite even among some deluded Christians, Jackson believes he

is a prophet sent forth as a messenger to the children of the world.

He claims I worry about the children, all my children all over the

world, I live for them...

I was sent forth for the world, for the

children, but have mercy, for I've been bleeding a long time now.

Michael Jackson attributes his creative ability to the "force within"

and reveals that his songs are given to him by way of revelation

through "dreams" after being assembled in another realm. He says, the

whole thing is strange, you hear the words, everything is right there

in front of your face, and you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry, I just

didn't write this.' Its there already. I feel that somewhere,

someplace, it's all been done, and I'm the courier bringing it into the


The Word of God reveals three different sources of dreams:

natural (Ecc. 5:3); divine (Matt. 1:20); and evil (Jer. 23:32; 27:9,

Zech. 10:2). Therefore the Lord instructs us to test those who claim

revelation as a "dreamer of dreams" (Deut. 13:1-5) and if they speak

not according to this Word it is because there is no light in them

(Isa. 8:20).

Sadly, the closest Michael Jackson gets to the Word of God in his

lyrics is to promote as truth the very lie God reveals will cause many

to be damned (2 Thess. 2:9-11).

His song We Are The World was sung by

an all- star line-up of over 40 singers ranging from Kenny Rogers to

Cyndi Lauper. It was first done for famine relief in Africa and ended

up being sung as an anthem during Hands Across America. the message

Michael brings to his children is that we are all a part of God's great

big family and that the world must come together as one...we're saving

our own lives.

The song goes on to say, as God has shown us by turning

stones to bread so we all must lend a helping hand. Compared with

Matt. 4:1-5 it does not take much discernment to detect the spirit

behind the song. The co-writer of the song, Lionel Richie, is

described as being "in shock" as to how fast Michael Jackson wrote the

music. Interesting the book by the same title describes the lyrics as

being "summoned."

In Jackson's song Another Part of Me from his latest album Bad he


We're takin over, we have the truth, this is the mission, to see it

through...this is our planet...and this is our message to you. The

planets are linin' up, we're bringin' brighter days, they're allin

line waiting for you...We're coming together...

This song parallels the New Age Harmonic convergence claim that our

planet was finding it s rightful alignment in the "galactic community"

and summoning the New Age. Jackson performs this song, in a short

movie played at Disneyland where he is seen as a savior transforming a

decadent society into a paradise with his magic power.

This is not to be taken lightly in that his message is drummed into

the hearts and minds of millions via his music and as early as 1984 it

was being reported that a group had emerged claiming he is the "Messiah

returned" and the "Archangel Michael."

If we as discerning Christians reject sitting under the teachings of

other false teachers, it is my prayer to God that all would reject the

musical ministry of Michael Jackson.

SCRIPTURES: God, in His Word, warns and alerts us concerning

spiritual deception in the last days (Matt. 24:4-5, 11, 23-26, 2
