At the end of the video: while he's concentrated and focused on the song, Michael looks a bit disturbed, though polite in the camera's direction with an priceless expression of "what's that camera doing there, from that position?" or something :lol:

@Gema I also don't see the fan connection.
The song is simply beautiful.

The fan connection, as it appears to me, is this: Michael wants his fans to follow him into the gates of paradise, into heaven, into the Kingdom of God.

The "your" in the phrase "all in your name" most likely refers to God; people often say they do things "in God's name" or "in Jesus name" and the meaning is (1) you come, not of your own authority, but have been authorized by God to carry out something (2) instead of God, you have come in His place (like a representative). I have also seen the phrase used as "all for the glory of God", for the purpose of expanding his Kingdom, evangelizing.


The sentiments expressed in this song summarize the teachings of the gospel in a nut shell:
  • God's will/desires/wishes for humanity—woman and man—are way better than what we have in mind, so just follow His plan. His commandments, if followed as intended, keep us out of trouble and serve our best interest as a species—hygenically, nutritionally, sociologically, et cetera.
  • All of religious doctrine boils down to one thing: love. Everything you say, think, or do should build up, heal/comfort other individuals and their families—physically, psychologically, emotionally—in every way possible. You should not damage, hurt, or cause suffering. (Unless you're eradicating a person that threatens the safety of the rest of society, but even in that case 1-on-1, face-to-face, human-vs-human vengeance all willy-nilly is not approved of. There are systems in place to carry out justice, both in the new and old testaments).
  • Our desire to see others "living well" should outweigh our desire to satisfy the self.
  • We should all strive to live quiet, peaceful lives. 
  • In times of affliction, we must hold our ground, persevere, standing for all that is good: righteousness, truth, justice, love, et cetera, instead of being a coward and compromising your morality for the sake of safety.
  • If you try to exalt yourself as a being that doesn't need God, try to do things of your own accord, your own authority, you will fail miserably in your pride. You will be humiliated and shamed.
  • You're always being watched—whether you believe or not (), whether you accept His help or not.
There's probably more, but from the top of my head this is what I can parallel from the lyrics back to scripture.


Basically, he's trying to teach his fans the gospel. That's the simplest explanation.


edit: something that just occurred to me, the lyric "suffer the children" is a phrase I've seen used to convey the idea of providing (or depriving?) children of pure religious instruction, not hindering them from learning about the kingdom of heaven and what is expected of them. It seems like they're using the phrase as a double entendre though: we're literally letting children suffer, but also failing to "suffer the children" in a biblical sense, allowing them to learn about God and his kingdom, teachings which eliminate much of our misery-causing behavior, misery we inflict upon ourselves.

I'm referring to verses like Luke 18:16 that use the same phrase:

Quote
"But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: [...] "

Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

I've just finished reading one amazing book about Guardian Angels, how they teach and help us to be a better person. The book describes everything that happens with a human soul after our body dies. The main msg in this book is to LOVE God and everyone around us. The book is strictly esoteric, so if you don't believe in these kind of things, please don't judge me ;))
So it says in the book that the Gates of Paradise are located somewhere on the mountains of Tibet, of course it's not visible to a human eye, because it's in another dimension. So when i read it i couldn't stop thinking about this song and how Michael says "Follow me to the gates of paradise", maybe he is in Tibet in one of the Temples?  fresse/ I know that it sounds crazy, but Tibet would be a perfect place for Michael to hide in. 
"What one wishes is to be touched by truth and to be able to interpret that truth so that one may use what one is feeling and experiencing, be it despair or joy, in a way that will add meaning to one\'s life and will hopefully touch others as well.
This is art in its highest form. Those moments of enlightenment are what i continue to live for." -Michael Jackson
