Where is Michael Jackson Now....article.
April 25, 2010, 01:06:01 AM
After all the allegations of prescription drug abuse; of child molestation and parental payoffs; of rumors of failing health; of rumors of a deteriorating face; of rumors of bleached skin; of financial woes, and a host of other charges, Michael Joseph Jackson is dead. Just typing these words rocks my soul; leaving the foundation of my very being unsettled. Though he's been dead for a week now, I'm stunned as I type in a fog, alternating between fantasy and reality. I'm waiting for someone to wake me up so I can tell them about this awful dream I had of Michael being dead. It seemed just yesterday that, at the family's request, I was taking on haters, skeptics, and the world media in defending the family's reputation. Being a spiritual man, Michael believed that all sins--either real or imagined--are forgiven in death. You see, "Sin pays off with death." (Rom. 6:23; Contemporary English Version) But, according to the Bible, what exactly is the condition of the dead? Will there be a resurrection? Here's what Michael believed:

The Condition of the Dead: The Bible says very plainly, "The living at least know they will die, but the dead know nothing. They have no further reward, nor are they remembered. Whatever they did in their lifetime--loving, hating, envying--is all long gone. They no longer play a part in anything here on earth... Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave, there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom." (Eccl 9:5, 6, 10; New Living Translation) Billions are in the grave right now with no signs of cognitive activity. And it's the same for everyone, irrespective of your station in life. "You can't depend on anyone, not even a great leader. Once they die and are buried, that will be the end of all their plans." (Ps. 146:3, 4; CEV) This can clearly be seen in Michael's case. Although he had grandiose plans to put on fifty glorious concerts, once he died, that was 'the end of all his plans.' Michael was aware of the state of the dead. But he was also aware that they would be resurrected.
