ASHAMED

by Tony Alamo

You’re not to call yourself a Christian if you deny the truth of any part of the WORD OF GOD, or are ashamed of any of the content of the WORD OF GOD. JESUS said in Mark 8:38, “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of ME and of MY WORDS in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the SON OF MAN be ashamed, when HE cometh in the GLORY OF HIS FATHER with the HOLY ANGELS” (Mark 8:38).

Just before this statement of JESUS, HE warns the whole world about being politically correct in verses 34b-35: “Whosoever will come after ME, let him deny himself [don’t worry about being mocked and scoffed at for standing up for MY TRUTH], and take up his cross [don’t worry about the repercussion that you will receive for teaching the TRUTH], and follow ME. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it [If you’re ashamed of CHRIST who is THE WORD OF GOD, you will lose not only your life, but your ETERNAL LIFE.]; but whosoever shall lose his life for MY sake and the Gospel’s, the same shall save it.” Everybody seems to know that when we lose the former life, we live to do what JESUS tells us to do, which is “Preach the [whole] WORD” of GOD,1 because we are to love our neighbor as ourselves, and if we withhold the WORD of GOD from the whole world, the LOVE of GOD is not in us! In Matthew 4:4, JESUS says, “Man shall not live [eternally] by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD.”

“For what shall it profit a man [if he doesn’t do what the LORD tells him, because he is ashamed of GOD’S WORD and the persecution and the hatred that goes along with teaching, preaching, and living the WORD of GOD? Again, what shall it profit a man], if he shall gain the whole world [by ignoring GOD and being ashamed of HIM, the WORD of GOD], and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mark 8:36-37).

These same words of the LORD, warning us not to be ashamed of HIM and HIS WORD (the WORD of GOD IS THE ENTIRE BIBLE, OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS) are also found in Luke 9:26.

And when the disciples of JESUS saw HIM AFTER HIS RESURRECTION, “they worshipped HIM: but some disbelieved. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, ALL POWER is given unto ME in HEAVEN and EARTH. Go ye therefore, and TEACH ALL NATIONS [not be ashamed of GOD’S WORD, but GO and TEACH ALL NATIONS THE WHOLE WORD OF GOD], baptizing them in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT: TEACHING THEM TO OBSERVE ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU” (Matt. 28:17-20), such as the legal marriage age is at puberty2; childhood ends at puberty; there is no condemnation for having more than one wife3; and children must be disciplined!4

Are you ashamed to teach these words of GOD? What will it profit you if you are ashamed of JESUS and HIS WORD? If you don’t lose your own worthless life and preach and teach the WORD, THE WHOLE WORD OF GOD, which is CHRIST, you will spend an eternity in hell, then the lake of fire.

John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD. Verse 14 says, “And the Word [JESUS] was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the FATHER,) full of GRACE and TRUTH.”

Forget about being politically correct because in Revelation 21:7-8, JESUS, THE TRUE WORD OF GOD, states, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things [the entire universe, co-owner with JESUS5]; and I will be his GOD, and he shall be MY son. But the fearful [people, the politically correct instead of the SPIRITUALLY CORRECT], and unbelieving [those who don’t believe the WORD OF GOD, but believe the Antichrist], and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and ALL LIARS, shall have their part in the lake [of fire] which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rev. 21:7-8).

You think GOD is nasty? You are devils, nasty, worthless devils, if you think GOD is evil and you devils are good! The Apostle Paul, whom GOD used to write more than two thirds of the New Testament, said in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of CHRIST: for it is the power of GOD unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek [Gentile]” (Rom. 1:16).

Again, man lives not “by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of GOD” (Matt. 4:4). Receive JESUS your Savior, THE WORD OF GOD, now, so you may have eternal life, by saying this prayer:

Prayer

My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
