Matthew Robert Payne is a self-described prophet who authored a series of books called Michael Jackson Speaks From Heaven. In those books, he claims he visited Heaven and has received divine revelation from Heaven and has seen and spoken to Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson was a controversial figure during his life and if you know anything about him, you know about the many allegations surrounding him involving inappropriate relationships with children. Ultimately, Jackson died of cardiac arrest after a prescription drug overdose. While it is conceivably possible that Jackson repented and trusted in Christ at some point before his death, there is simply no evidence that this is the case, making Payne’s testimony of seeing Michael Jackson in Heaven absurd, at best.
And besides the fact that Payne’s claim to direct divine revelation just being completely absurd, even if people were able to take prophetic trips to Heaven, which they are not, Payne’s description of what he saw is just enormously ridiculous—like, you just can’t make this stuff up.
Payne says when he saw Michael Jackson in Heaven, he was laying in his bed with pictures of little children all over his walls. Jackson, Payne said, lays in his bed at night and watches the little children play with Jesus as he falls asleep. What? Okay…that’s just creepy. Sounds like Payne needs his head checked.
