MUSIC AND THE NEW AGE
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
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
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.
