A stunning apparition that left a twenty year old witness all shook up claimed to be Elvis Presley, with a message from Heaven.

Zeke was playing his guitar, in his Memphis garage, when suddenly, lightning struck outside, and an apparition stood before him and told him "Fear not, I am the king of rock n' roll, but I come to you in the name of the King of kings."

Zeke claims he felt a strange sense of calmness, as the apparition continued to say, "No matter who someone is or what he or she believes, I always want my music to be a positive and uplifting source of inspiration and comfort. I would never deny someone the pleasure and peace of feeling that my music speaks to them and to their situation, just because my political views may be different from theirs."

Zeke responded, "What are your political views? America has changed since you've passed away. Who would you vote for if you were alive, today?"

The apparition responded, "I am alive, today, alive in Christ. When I walked this Earth, I made it clear that I love God, and as a Christian am qualified to share His love with the world. As a musician, I am not qualified to share my political views, though. It would be cruel to ostracize half my fans, and rob them of the joy and inspiration they found in my music, so don't be cruel."

Zeke retorted, "As a musician, you are qualified to talk about music, so who are your favorite musicians, today?"

The apparition responded, "Apologetix is my absolute favorite modern rock group, because like me, they find inspiration in many musicians whose views may be very different from their own, while using those musicians' sound to spread their own Christian faith with the world. My favorite of their songs are 'Jail Got Rocked,' 'Cut-Rate Hotel,' 'Don't Be Fooled,' 'Found God,' 'Little Esther,' and my absolute favorite, 'Wise Men Still.'"

Zeke retorted, "I'm not a Christian musician. Maybe I'll be that way later in life, but now, I just want to make the top 40."

The apparition responded, "Tomorrow may be too late! It's now or never. Come to the Lord, now, and repent!"

Lightning struck again, and the apparition disappeared. Zeke claims that he did not consciously recall falling down to his knees, but he found himself there, praying, and asking Jesus into his heart.
