Good afternoon, my name is Michael Ford.
I am very glad to be back at WKNG radio today. This is the first time I have been broadcasting live since I was on the air here several years ago when Walt Disney's Pocahontas movie was just coming out and I want to catch the listeners up from there.
But first I want to tell you about the people who make a broadcast like this possible. This radio program is brought to you by McWhorter Ministries, which is sponsored in part by White Front Café. Folks that pay for radio broadcasts like this do so because they love the Lord Jesus Christ and often it requires some sacrifice on their part. They are not in this to make money, and that is why I want to recommend that you consider giving them a call when you need someone to come and sing. Give them a call at 770-574-8709 or 770-328-7866. I do not have to tell people in this area that the name McWhorter has been connected with good Gospel music for more years than I can remember.
My friend C.W. Boling of Only By Grace Ministries is here in the studio today and he is praying about a bi-monthly program to be called "What to Do After You Are Saved; Being a Christian in Today's Society. I think that is a worthwhile endeavor, but he wants to have the mind of the Lord in the matter. So if you think this is something that would be beneficial give him a call at 770-574-9412 or 770- 316-7149. If you are a Christian pray about this ministry.
Now I know I have given you a lot of phone numbers already and you might get confused by that. I am sure that if you try to get hold of one ministry and get another they will be glad to help you get in touch with the person you are trying to reach. So don’t despair if you only get one number down. We will be thrilled to help you to contact the person you want to get in touch with.
August is a big month. Children are going back to school in the public schools and the same is true in Christian schools as well. I am glad that we have one in Haralson County, located at Tallapoosa East Baptist Church in Buchanan. There is a Bible College and Seminary Extension Center located up there too. They will be going back to school as well this month. You can find out about such things by giving Tallapoosa East Baptist Church a call. You can also find out about how to do such things as get the Jonsquill Ministries booklet of Daily Thoughts for this month sent to you at absolutely no charge. If you are on the Internet we can be contacted there as well.
Just type in J-o-n-s-q-u-i-l-l and the standard spelling for Ministries and a search engine will take you right to us.
Now if you have your Bible handy I am going to read you a passage of Scripture and catch you up a little bit on what is happening in the world since Pocahontas. The Bible passage is 2Thessalonians chapter 2 verses 1 thru 3:
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,
That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, that the day of Christ is at hand.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition…
I am going to pause right there today and announce to you that the falling away has come and the next thing on the agenda as far as the church is concerned is the appearance of the man of sin we call Antichrist.
His coming was talked about all the way back in the book of Genesis and has been the expectation of the believing church for two thousand years and now it is soon going to happen.
Some of you are saying, now wait a minute, Michael, you said you were going to talk about things that have happened since you were last on the radio, talking about the Walt Disney Pocahontas movie…Well, I am. You see, what has been happening has been taking us closer to the day when a demonically possessed man of sin called the Antichrist is going to be able to reveal himself to the world.
Back when I was talking about Pocahontas and Lion King Movies and things like that, we were trying to get Christians to take a stand against sin. But more and more people today love their pleasures more than they love God.
Why I have had Baptist deacons, knowing full well what kind of witchcraft and New Age theology Walt Disney was promoting tell me that they were still going to pack up their families and truck them down to Orlando, to Walt Disney World. I have prayed for those daddies who are supposed to be the spiritual leaders of their families when they told me such things. I have prayed they would show up down there on one of the days when Disney caters to the homosexuals. I prayed God would shame them by causing them to see what they had subjected their families to for a little pleasure. And, on more than one occasion, God has answered my prayers.
I know some of you think I am harsh praying a prayer like that. I am not. It has to do with God's principle of sowing and reaping. What you sow, you shall reap, and you shall reap with an increase above what you have sown. That is part of farming, and it is part of the Law of the Harvest. Listen to me. A Christian in leadership who sets a bad example in his actions should not be surprised when his compromise with the world comes home to haunt him.
Back in Paul's day, when he wrote this letter to Thessalonica, he had a problem with alarmist people getting folks all worked up that the end was at hand. Paul said, wait a minute, we have a way to go just yet, and this is part of how you will know you are getting down to the end. People will not be getting worked up about the end of the age; most will be stone cold unconcerned.
Most people today are stone cold unconcerned. There has been a falling away, and if you don't believe it, just go into a church and see how much needs to be done to reach lost people and take care of the people within the church already, and see how few of them are busy doing it.
Most people at best don’t mind something happening in the church as long as someone else is doing it.
And most people will not keep themselves apart from things of the world where the world has an attraction for them. So they are useless for God's work anyway.
Right now the Episcopal Church, that's the Anglican Church in the United States, is being torn in two over the subjects of homosexuals and ordaining women. Some of the people that are for this kind of abomination say, well the Bible is not clear on the subject. Well, when the Bible says that a man should not lie with a man as with a woman and that a woman shall not lie with a woman as with a man, what part of that is unclear? When the Bible says that a pastor is supposed to be the husband of one wife, what part of that is unclear? Don’t get me wrong, I am not just picking on the Episcopalians. Some of the things I am talking about is happening in Baptist churches as well. There is a great falling away taking place, and let me tell you world that when the Christians cease to stand, everybody out there is in trouble, because Antichrist is on his way.
Now some people have decided that this is a sermon about homosexuals, but it isn't. Across the Georgia line lays a land called Alabama. It was once part of the Georgia land grant, so don't make Alabama jokes. You are only talking about Georgians that got lost from their neighbors. But over there they have an honest Justice called Judge Roy Moore. We for sure need a man like him in Georgia.
The devils have been attacking him because he wants to keep The Ten Commandments prominently displayed in public buildings. People have been attacking him for that. The public school has lost two or more generations of students you see. We have generations of people that do not know our law is based on the Bible and those Ten Commandments. It is alright to put up other things in courthouses today, but if you put something up that has the word of God on it, boy everybody gets upset.
We cannot have religion in public places…No, what we cannot have is the Christian religion in public places.
They took the plaques that had Scripture on them off display in the Grand Canyon. We cannot promote religion they said. Surprisingly they did not change the names of any of the rock formations that were named for Hindu gods. That was alright you see, because it was not Christian.
When you expel the Word of God from the courtrooms of America it is not surprising that you have Supreme Court Justices that call the Constitution of the United States a living document. What they mean when they say that is they can interpret the Constitution to mean anything they want it to mean and what the founders intended does not have to enter into their considerations anymore.
What is right and decent and good does not have to enter into their considerations anymore. You have seen ample evidence of that lately if you keep up with current events.
Now thanks to the Supreme Court we kill millions of babies before they are born; and if that was not bad enough we get babies half way delivered and then while the baby is half in the mother they crush his head and suck out his brains. You want to know why those things are happening? It is because people who should have some concern about what God thinks about things are more interested in their pleasure than in what He wants them to be about.
America used to be a nation that sent missionaries to third world countries to win the lost heathen, and we still do some of that, but the heathen are sending tons of their missionaries over here to further corrupt our society. You have mosques and Ashrams going up all over the place. But something else is happening too. Some of those third world nations where we once sent missionaries are now sending Christian missionaries to America. And they are praying for us. They are praying Christians in America will get some persecution so they will get right with God. Guess what? Things are starting to work out to where their prayers can be answered.
You know, I don't set out to alienate people when I go to preach. It just seems to happen that way when you start to tell people the truth and some of it hits home where they live. For instance I know that I have some public school teachers in my audience today. There are a whole lot of you out there and just a few people like me whose degree in education happens to be Christian Education. But if I tell you the truth does that make me your enemy? I may be the only friend you got left. I not only care enough to tell you the truth about what is going on, but I will also tell you that you need the Lord Jesus Christ not only as your Savior but also as Lord of your life. When that happens you will quite paying dues to the evil National Education Association that keeps trying to use America's classrooms as a place for social experimentation.
Let me give you some facts. In 1940, the literacy rate for all states stood at 96 percent for whites and eighty percent for blacks. For all the disadvantages black people labored under, four out of five were still literate, and many put their literacy to good use, reading their Bibles. Six decades later, at the end of the 20th century, the National Adult Literacy Survey and the National Assessment of Educational progress say forty percent of blacks and seventeen percent of whites cannot read at all. Now, since I have met many people, even educators who cannot do math anymore, let me tell you what that means in mathematical terms. It means black illiteracy has doubled and white illiteracy has quadrupled in spite of all the money poured down the sinkhole of public education.
It is for sure that people who cannot read do not read their Bibles; but I am willing to also assure you that most of those illiterate people, who have spent some time in public schools, believe that they are descended from some amoebae that had an inspired moment millions of years ago. They do not think they were the specific, loving creation of a caring God so they copulate like animals and think that anything they do without getting caught is alright. No wonder our jails are full. But I think that the devil does not want people to read their Bibles. He tried for years to keep Bibles out of the hands of the common people, and when there arose people who were willing to give their lives so the Bible could be available to every plowboy, he had to change his strategy. I believe that evolution and illiteracy are two arms of the devil's plan to keep people away from the word of God and he is succeeding in great part.
Have you heard the latest news in education? They are going to start a school in New York for gay, lesbian, and transgendered students. They cannot teach Johnny to read, but they can figure out whether he is a budding pervert or not.
Johnny cannot figure out how to eat a balanced diet, but as a preteen he is supposed to know whether there is something amiss with his sexuality or not. I guarantee you nobody in that high school is going to tell the kids that opt to go to it that maybe they are confused sexually because somebody molested them when they were young, or because they did not have a father in their homes to teach them how to be young men and women.
You see, I know the reason the school is being set up, and I am about to tell you what it is. In the first year of the Clinton administration I wrote a paper in ethics dealing with homosexuality. In that paper I revealed that the average life expectancy for a sodomite was 46 years. Today, as this school is being founded in New York the average life expectancy has declined to 39 years. The reason for the homosexual conditioning and training ground being established that will be paid for with your tax dollars is so the perverts can get fresh untainted flesh for their abominable practices. When I wrote the paper on homosexuality I quoted a sodomite by the name of Michael Swift. He swore that they were going to get into the institutions and seduce the children of people who thought themselves to be quite apart from such evil practices. It has not taken many years for him to be proven right has it?
I do say thank God Jesus is coming, but my heart aches for the many people within the sound of my voice who are going to be disappointed in that day. I think that not all the lost people are folks who do not go to church. I think some of the lost people go to church pretty regularly and are unconcerned about this old world and other people in it.
There are some people listening to me who know they are lost and there are some people who are lost and deceiving themselves about it. One of the reasons I know this is true is because so many people who claim to be Christians are complacent about the things of God. What is your condition today?
