Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

He did not just change Pop music - he changed the world of music. There are only a select few that have altered the music time line of history: Billy Holiday, Buddy Holly, the Beatles, Elvis, Frank Sinatra - it can be argued that they each changed the face of the music industry. Michael Jackson changed several industries - Music, video, dance and choreography.

Wiipedia lists his "Occupation" as: "Singer, songwriter, record producer, arranger, dancer, choreographer, actor, author, businessman, financier".

The "voice" of the kid from Gary Indiana was a gift from the creator to an unsuspecting world. The tragedy of the genius of Michael was in his being unable to live comfortably in a world into which he did not fit. He did "fit" on the public stage, creating magic in front of those he was called to - indeed, that was where he stated he was most comfortable...

Did you hear that sound yesterday (June 25, 2009) at about 2:26 pm local time (21:26 UTC)? That was the sound of the musical time line altering once again.

what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul???

Fortunately, only God gets to decide where we go ultimately. In the meantime, our job is to love people into the Kingdom - not keep them out by our judgements - since it is not His will that any should perish. Never forget that the news only tells us what they want us to hear - not necessarily ever the whole truth.

I prayed that his comeback would be successful. I guess God had other plans. *sigh* In a sense it is appropriate to mention Michael Jackson here, after all he was a worship leader of the highest caliber. The only problem was that he was leading people to worship himself... :)

My lesson from MJ ...............

James 4:13 - 14
Now listen , you who say , " Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city , spend a year there, carry on bussiness and make money. "
Why , you do not even know what will happen tomorrow . What is your life ? You are a mist that appears for
a little while and then vanishes.......

Go to now, ye that say, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year ,and buy
and sell, and get gain:
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? it is even a vapour, that appeareth
for a little time, and then vanisheth away......

อย่าอวดอ้างถึงพรุ่งนี้
นี่แน่ท่านที่พูดว่า " วันนี้หรือพรุ่งนี้เราจะเข้าไปในเมืองนี้เมืองนั้น และจะอยู่ที่นั่นปีหนึ่ง และจะค้าขายได้กำไร"
แต่ว่าท่านไม่รู้เรื่องของพรุ่งนี้ ชีวิตของท่านเป็นเช่นใดเล่า ท่านก็เป็นเช่นหมอกที่ปรากฎอยู่เพียงชั่วครู่แล้วก็หายไป........


and for me i still love him as same as Ronald .....Taylor because of his life for Thailand....

since 1996 we are Thai fanclub met him in first concert of international concert of Thailand and after him we got many international concert from superstars around the world and i thankful to God who
gave mercy for us to open our test and civilization with the international music because our music is
total difference with western and The Lord developed the music for us through him .....this is the grace
of God that we got from MJ life.......

and we do not know the truth of everything of every life in this world we can not understand everything
and every situation but i learn from the situation we think what should i do and continue to do.....

as same as King David he is music teacher for us ....but sometime we do not understand him in everything but we still love and learn with his story day by day......

But i belive God has a good plan for everyone who love him and MJ too..........and the miracle of LOve
that God who put in the heart of human nature is so wonderful and beautiful with the relationship of human in the world that is the creater of God i can touch love come from the heart of people around the world who sent to him........because GOD is LOVE and LOVE come from GOD......

in the last moment no one know only GOD who know between MJ and GOD and i thankful GOD
for the good thing from MJ life who gave for Thailand and my life and i still love him and i know Thai
fan club will love him ...........still and will be.....love him......

Thankful God for someone in a period time.....of my life

i love you MJ.....

Thanks for your comments, Junjie and Molly. Junjie, I believe that the gifts and callings of God are without repentance. Micheal was given his talent and anointing by God - he just chose to "do his thing" in the only venues that could hold his anointing. The start of the memorial service gave away the family's true belief in God.

If Michael W. Smith had been given Jackson's level of anointing, we would not say that he was doing it for us to follow him. Sometimes we short change the worship leaders outside the walls (of the church) - only because they lead worship outside the walls.

I think that Michael Jackson simply was doing what he was gifted and anointed by God to do.

I also think the "wacko Jacko" stuff was just a comic strip character he created to deflect the public's eye away from the real person.
