Poignant video 4 days before Michael Jackson's Death

Yesterday I posted about the 911 call that told of Michael Jackson's death.  Many have asked me to comment on his life, but I really didn't know enough about him to do that.  I do believe he was a troubled man and I know he didn't know the Lord as his Savior. I did wonder at the differences surrounding the death of both of those pop stars on Thursday. Farrah Fawcett had a very strong Christian faith (at least at the end of her life.) and I do believe it helped to keep her grounded and I am sure it was a comfort to her as she was going through the struggle known as cancer.  Michael Jackson was not a Christian.   Sean Hannity asked Reverend Al Sharpton what he thought the differences were between his having to deal with fame in the public eye as a famous figure and Michael Jackson's struggle with fame as a pop star.  He said it was the fact that he was grounded in his faith.  I don't tend to agree with many of the things Reverend Sharpton has said over the years, we are politically different, but his statement was so true no matter your political persuasion! Then yesterday a Twitter friend, Duong Sheahan, sent me this video.   It's of a pastor who is talking about how Mr. Jackson's life might have been different if he had known The Father, Almighty God.  So for today, Defending the Faith SONday I thought I would post the video for your consideration. No matter how our earthly father or the world may treat us, our Heavenly Father is bigger than all!

    Michael Jackson is my favorite pop artist ever since i was a child. He is truly the King of Pop and i am saddened by this news.

    I too agree with Carla on this one – every child does respond differently to abuse. Michael was clearly a tortured genius. Loved and known by the whole world – and he would have traded it in a second for a “normal” childhood and family. My heart goes out to him and I too hope to see him again someday – and I’m hoping that he was able to hear Jesus speak to him before he died. This has sure been a crazy week – and gives all of us a lot to think about and reflect on. Thanks for posting this, JoJo.

    That gives one the heebie-jeebies, doesn’t it? I wonder if anyone sent it to MJ before the end. I don’t know what he believed. I wonder if he did. The poor man was so mixed up about a lot of things. I read where somebody said, “Well, Joe Jackson beat all of his kids and they didn’t turn out like Michael.” Well. . . all kids are different. This one couldn’t take it. Nobody knows how the other ones dealt with it either, what is stuffed down so deep, never to come up or waiting to erupt. I feel for them all. I never had a good relationship with my own father. I could not comprehend of a kind, loving father. I didn’t get beat like these kids did, but my dad was emotionally abusive and very cold. A loving father? Oh, yeah, that was what my friends had. I think that’s why it took me so long to become a Christian. That concept was foreign to me. I only hope that someone told Michael about it or sent him this sermon part.

    It’s not scriptural, but I feel that God gives everyone sort of a “two-minute warning” before they die, one more chance to accept. I mean, hey, the scriptures do say that God doesn’t want anyone to perish, that He wants all to come to Him, right? My big hope and prayer is that I will be pleasantly (or otherwise) surprised to see who is in heaven when my time comes. Problem is, I’m sure that a bunch of ’em will be surprised to see me there, too. RIP Michael Jackson.
