(CNN) — Michael Jackson, the show-stopping singer whose best-selling albums — including “Off the Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad” — and electrifying stage presence made him one of the most popular artists of all time, died Thursday, CNN has confirmed.
The singer and dancer and pop star, Michael Jackson, is dead. A man loved by many and praised by many, who had “all the riches of the world”, who had a lifestyle that many would die for. A man of fame, whose death will be mourned by many all over the world for a very long time, just like it was in the case of Elvis. Yet, despite the riches he had and the praises he got from many, he was still a mere man, a man who experienced death, as every one of us still alive has yet to experience. And not just that: we are all, without exception, destined to face judgment. For the Bible says in Hebrews 9:27:
“Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment.”
This is not the end, friends; it is the end of worldly fame and hopes, but as the Word of God says: “the dust will return to the earth as it was, and the spirit will return to God who gave it.” (Ecclesiastes 12:7) Michael Jackson who was and will surely be a god for many, is now before God who alone has the authority to Judge the living and the dead according to their deeds. But after death it’s too late for repentance; today is the day you need to repent from your sins through Jesus Christ so that you may be saved. This man, Michael Jackson, lived a life that could be considered to be more pleasurable than many have lived. But his life is gone. It was nothing but a breath of air on a cold day now passed.; his lifestyle gives evidence that he lived and left without God… And this is exactly what your life will be like eventually. No riches, no human glory, no praises from men, can save you from the punishment for all the sins you have committed.
Matthew 16:26 says:
“What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”
The only way to be saved is through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ alone saves.
