It’s that time of year again! Halloween season is in full swing and so is the “Thriller” memorial to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
People all over the world are simultaneously singing the “Thriller” lyrics and dressing up as ghouls to celebrate evil in flash mob mode.
As I looked over the photo gallery of Michael Jackson’s life, something startled me. In his last years, he had literally taken on the image of one of the zombies in the “Thriller” video. His striving for perfection through plastic surgery took him in the wrong direction.
In his final bio, he stated he only wished for two things in life; to be loved and to have the biggest selling song in history.
One wish was granted at a very high price.
I believe Michael lost his way after “Thriller” was released. His inability to love himself left him empty and unable to receive the love he craved.
Music was his idol, and “Thriller” sat on the top of that idol.
There is a biblical principle that what you focus upon you become.
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Cor. 3:18
As believers, we have a choice! We can meditate on God, and daily be renewed in his image and likeness or we can meditate on the world and lose the brilliance of his glory.
What Michael focused on he became.
The sad part is he regretted co-partnering with demonic realm after “Thriller” was released. He was a practicing Jehovah Witness at the time and tried to have the video destroyed. It was too late, the VH1 world had already gotten it out to the masses. The torment was sealed, Michael Jackson’s name would always be associated with his biggest selling song.
Halloween Opens the Door For Demonic Torment
We are responsible for training our children up the way that they should go, and Halloween is not the funfest you want your children focusing on into adulthood.
You may think dressing them up as bunnies and angels make the holiday acceptable, but it doesn’t.
Your children are participating in a night dedicated to evil with fear lurking on every side. I learned this lesson the hard way. My personal testimony of how this torment followed my daughter home is in a blog article on who was really being tricked at Halloween.
If you catch yourself humming along to these lyrics this year, repent, quickly and break any word curse that you have spoken through song. Often times we sing along and really don’t know what we are speaking into the atmosphere. Here is another portion of the words Vincent Price spoke in “Thriller”:
“Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’all’s neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse’s shell.”
“Thriller” didn’t make it to the biggest selling album in history without a little help from the dark side, and demons love it when you glorify them. Imagine the demonic whirlwind released when Flash Mobs around the world sing that song in unison! Maybe it’s time for the church to rise up in those types of coordinated worship events. Just something to ponder.
