I BELIEVE MICHAEL JACKSON IS IN HEAVEN!!!
Now before you begin to judge my statement, let me make this clear, I
said, “I
BELIEVE
MICHAEL JACKSON IS IN HEAVEN” .Now you may have a
difference
of opinion and that’s ok, you
are entitled to it and I will be glad to listen to your opinion. I invite you to post your opinion onmy blog. I the meantime I will share with you the reasons for my belief.First of all, I invite you to read the article on the current Testimony webpage
a TESTIMONY OFHEAVEN
. This is a beautiful testimony of a lady who claims that the Lord took her to heavenand describes the most beautiful scenes in heaven. I believe her testimony, because she hasdedicated her life to sharing this story with little financial gain. She only receives a few cents onthe sale of her books and you can download it for free. Her description of heaven certainlymakes you want to go there. If you want to get to heaven God makes it clear how you must get
there. Let’s
go to
God’s word.
 
HOW DO YOU GET SAVED SO YOU CAN GO TO HEAVEN?
I am going to give it to you straight out of the Bible.
The word of God’s says:
 
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
No one is perfect and we all need to be saved 
.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, thatwhoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John3:16
God made a way to save us by sending his Son, Jesus to die in our place.
He was in the world, and though the world was made through him,the world did not recognize him.
11
He came to that which was hisown, but his own did not receive him.
12
Yet to all who received him,to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to becomechildren of God
. John 1:10
You must receive him to become his child.
 
 
The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," 
that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:
9
That if you confess withyour mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouththat you confess and are saved.
11
 As the Scripture says, "Anyonewho trusts in him will never be put to shame." 
There are many more scriptures that tell you how to be saved, but mostimportantly, you must believe, and accept the fact that Jesus died to save you, andask for his forgiveness and ask him to come into your heart and life.You might be saying what is it that I am saved from?You are being saved from eternal damnation. The bible speaks about heaven andhell. Many do not believe that hell exists, but I encourage you to read the accountsof people who have visited hell and have horror stories of this place. It is better tobe safe than sorry. Eternity is a long time.
 To read about hell go to:h
One more thing before we talk about Michael. I want to share with you the account of a man who hadapparently been a criminal all of his life. Probably in and out of jail and he lived a life of crime. His life of crime had finally caught up with him and he was sentenced to death. There were three men hanging ona cross of crucifixion, (which was the Romans way of killing criminals) and here is what happened:
32
Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to beexecuted.
33
When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals
one on his right, the other on his left.
34
 Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." 
 
And they divided up his clothes by castinglots.
35 
The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is theChrist of God, the Chosen One." 
36
The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar 
37 
and said, "If you arethe king of the Jews, save yourself." 
38
There was a written noticeabove him, which read:| THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39
One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: "Aren't you theChrist? Save yourself and us!" 
 
 
40
But the other criminal rebuked him. "Don't you fear God," he said,"since you are under the same sentence? 
41
We are punished justly,for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has donenothing wrong." 
42
Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when youcome into your kingdom.
43
 Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth,today you will be with me in paradise." Luke 23:32-43
A couple of things I want to point out:1.
 
This man was a criminal, never lived a Christian life, yet Jesus savedhim at the last minute2.
 
He acknowledged and believed who Jesus was and proclaimed hisinnocence.3.
 
He asked in faith for Jesus to save him.4.
 
Jesus granted his request and promised him a life with him inparadise.5.
 
Jesus confirmed that there was paradise after death.6.
 
He exercises simple faith.7.
 
He believed that Jesus was a king and had a kingdom and the powerover life after death.8.
 
He believed he had the power to save him.9.
 
He recognized that he needed to be saved.As Jesus was dying he testified of 
 “Paradise”. In a court of law a dying man’s
testimony is considered as truth, because he is dying.Salvation can be instantaneous and it only takes one minute to get right withGod.There is also a place in the Bible where Jesus speaks of hell:
19
There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and finelinen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20
And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid athis gate, full of sores,
21
And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the richman's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
