Are You Ashamed To Be A Christian?

By Timothy Horner


Matthew 10:32-33 “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”

Are you ashamed of the Gospel of Christ?

Does the mention of Jesus Christ while in public embarrass you?

Mr. Ron Graham addressed some of this in one of his recent postings which I found to be so powerful that I wanted to add more but change the title to something which I hope has grabbed your attention. We as Christians have got to learn to stand up and let our voices be heard, our messages be seen, our light shine, our love for others be noticed, our peace with the Lord be desired by all.

Now before I go any further let me be the first to say that I am just as guilty here as anyone else because I love the Lord with all my heart and yet I too have to be careful when talking about God or Jesus at work since we have people who just don’t want to hear it. The problem I have and you may as well is that when the day comes where we will lose our job if there is any mention of God or Jesus, what will we do about it? Believe it or not, I am actually ready to take that risk, Are You?

I say this with confidence in knowing that the Lord has always provided my needs and He will always continue to take care of me and you even if we get to that point.

Matthew 6:31-33 “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you"

Currently this is not happening in the United States that I’m aware of but is coming soon so until then, Christians have just as much right to fight for our beliefs as all these sicko’s in the world do standing up for what is clearly against God.

With that said, here are some questions for everyone to think about for a while.

Why is it that people can march down the streets or gather on the Whitehouse Lawn protesting for what they believe is their right to same-sex marriages and abortions and get away with it but Christians don’t have protests for their belief?

Why is it that our Communities, our Schools, Cities, States, Government is so willing to accept Homosexuals and Abortions as a new normal across the United States?

Have we reached a point in life where Sin is enjoyed so much that the general population cannot even see any wrong in their actions? I believe the answer to this question is without a doubt yes, why else would there be struggle with the Truth.

Did you ever imagine that we would see a Muslim Terrorist as President of the United States? Well now we have but how much is Satan’s work and how much is God’s wrath being poured out because of our failure to support God and/or Israel?

Yes I said it and sorry if someone is offended but that is exactly what has happened. Our President as much as I can’t stand to say that has done everything possible to destroy our Freedom, our Rights, our biblical foundation, our Liberty, our Faith, our jobs, our families, our economy, our finances and this same President is replacing all of that with Hate and with government control, with Muslim acceptance, with killing, with embarrassing representation for our country, with a ‘stamp of approval’ for sins that simply defy the Word of God and so much more which is yet to come.

Folks, if you think things are bad now or if you think I’m talking crazy, just wait and see because we may see a lot more sin and evil things taking place before our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ takes the Christians out of this world during the Rapture.

We need a Great Revival of Christians from all around country to gather together in Washington taking a stand for the Word of God and Praising God for all that He has and is doing for us until the Rapture. How can we make this happen?

Why don’t Christians use the same tools such as Commercials, Movies, Television Sitcoms, Talk Shows, Rallies, etc. to stand up for our belief and Jesus Christ?

The rest of this world must see Christians as a weak people because we sit back and take everything the world dishes out that is against God.

Why do we have so many Pastors, Preachers, Priests, Bishops, Etc. on our Television networks teaching the Word of God who is already well established publically and/or financially but yet we don’t see any of them in Washington standing up for the Word of God? Either they are afraid of losing what they have because this world simply places no value on belief in God or some other reason I just don’t understand.

These congregations have hundreds or thousands of people and then there are hundreds of thousands others who watch on Television…Can you imagine if we all got together to rally in Washington? Can you imagine how many thousands of people this would be taking a stand for God? Can you imagine the impact we could have?

It’s time for a Great Revival!

Each of us has a circle of life around us (Family, Friends, Work, Church, Neighbors, Etc.) which we can work on impacting with the Love of God and the Gospel of Christ

Rapture Ready is by far one of the best vehicles to use for getting the truth out, spreading the Gospel, sharing talent, fellowship, reaching out to others, Saving Souls and so much more but the questions that keep circling in my head is this…..

“What more can I do for you Lord”? “How can I be used more effectively to spread the Gospel”? And finally “How can Christians Unite together”?

You don’t have to be a Christian to see that major changes are taking place in our weather patterns, our laws, our Government, our Freedom, our Rights, Etc. So knowing this, we must keep looking up because the Rapture is at any moment now!

While we wait impatiently, lets’ save more souls so they too can live for Eternity!

1 Corinthians 15:52 ‘In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed’.  I can’t wait to hear the trumpet sound and the words ‘come up hither’!

Revelation 3:10 "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will KEEP THEE FROM the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Don’t fear the things on earth; we will be with the Lord! 

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. I can’t wait! I can’t wait!

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, hold on to your faith and keep looking Up.

God Bless!
