No Shame - No Blush
“Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall...” - (Jer.6:15).
“...but the unjust knoweth no shame” - (Zeph.3:5).
The definition of blush is (a reddening of the face, especially from shame). America has no shame, neither can we blush. Babylon-USA is drunkenly feasting and living in luxury and revelry and pleasures and fornication of all kinds. We’re a nation of whores that apply blush to their faces with cosmetics because we can’t blush, we have no sense of shame. The handwriting is on the wall for America - in one day and in one hour we shall fall. “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen...” - (Rev.18:2). ‘Baby’ is the beginning of ‘Baby’-lon and we are making babies by fornication like barnyard animals and we murder the babies by abortion at a rate of 1 1/2 million a year. In 2007 40% of all babies were born by unwed mothers - we have no shame. Both the mothers and fathers don’t feel they did anything wrong. We are living much worse than the heathen Indians that were here when the godly Pilgrims and Puritans founded this country.
We have TV shows where they tell the world about bestiality and sodomy inside their bedroom and sodomites are shown in bed together. We have decriminalized sodomy and are about to make sodomite marriage legal and government and religious leaders march with sodomites flaunting this abomination in public. We talk about one night stands on Jerry Springer and jilted lovers beg to be taken back on Ricki Lake. On Montel Williams a mother and her teenage daughter talk about their desire to have sex with the same man. We have no shame and no blush. Our godly conscience has fallen silent because there is no preaching on these sins and shame and blushing has died. The word shame has no place in our society any longer.
America should be blushing beet red but we have no sense of sin and shame. We have become so desensitized to our sins that we can’t blush anymore. We have a complete disregard for Christ and His Word and sin and the time of Great Tribulation will fall upon U.S. soon.
One man said - “you go to court and the guy is looking at you like, what’s your problem, so what if I killed your son.” One lady who counsels families of victims said “out of 1200 families she’s counseled with only 10 have seen some kind of shame and remorse from the person who murdered their loved one.” Because we don’t get red-faced from shame and repent of our sins, God’s flushed red-faced anger and wrath will fall upon U.S. We need to do what Ezra did - “And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up into the heavens” - (Eza 9:6).
The devil’s psychologists (soul doctors) have helped to remove sin and shame as they teach that shame is the root of many emotional problems. Politicians are scared of the words sin and shame. False teachers in our pulpits consider the whole idea of shame a step backward. They say it produces a negative stigma that has no redemptive quality at all. This whole Antichrist society is screaming out - “Don’t be judgmental. Be tolerant of everyone’s behavior. We don’t want anyone to feel ashamed.” There’s no shame in America - we don’t want the word mentioned.
Sin that brings shame and blushing has promise of repentance and forgiveness and healing for a nation. But where there’s no shame, there’s no hope. It is written of Adam and Eve before they sinned - “And they were both naked the man and his wife, and were not ashamed” - (Gen.2:25). But when they sinned they were ashamed and covered their nakedness - “... And they knew that they were naked: and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons” - (Gen.3:7). Nakedness and sex sins show our shamelessness more than any other sins.
But the reason Americans have no sense of shame is mainly the fault of preachers in our pulpits. Once upon a time our protestant pulpits were aflame with preachers of righteousness who thundered out against sin and then pointed the guilty and hell-bound sinner to Jesus on the cross. Now we have gutless preachers who don’t have the courage to preach because most have never been born again and people want preachers who preach smooth things to them. But God says - “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine: but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears” - (2 Tim.4:2,3).
We’ve a sinful, adulterous and fornicating nation. Like sodomy, all our sins are out of the closet - bold and brazen - not hid any longer - there’s no shame. We do it right in public on worldwide TV for the whole world to see and follow. “Were they ashamed when they committed abomination? Nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush.” Parents are allowing their children to ‘shack up’ and commit fornication even in their parent’s homes - no shame - no blush, amen.
It starts in the pulpit. Shame on the cowardly preacher who’s ashamed to preach the whole counsel of God straight and true. We need bold preachers of righteousness naming sin unashamedly, calling sin exactly what it is in order to bring shame back to U.S. We are supposed to be the salt of the earth, but we have almost no salt left and our nation is corrupt. Soon God will salt us with fire - (Mk.9:49,50).
‘Naked World’ is a documentary following ‘artist’ Spencer Tunick as he photographed naked people in public places in the U.S. and around the world. We are now showing full frontal nudity of male movie stars and people become more and more naked and unashamed. And this, more than anything, points to Armageddon when the whole world is naked in their sins - “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called... Armageddon” - (Rev.16:15,16). Are you watching?
It used to be a shame for a man not to work and get welfare and beg on the streets and steal, but now there's no shame and our nation is bankrupt. We are bankrupt money-wise because we are bankrupt morally. “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed” - (2 Th.3:10,11,14). We have no discipline in our churches and it’s bankrupting America.
Those that are unsaved and unashamed are those that are ashamed of Christ and blaspheme His name. “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” - (Mk.8:38). We have no shame in America because most church members and preachers are not truly saved and born again and are instead ashamed of Christ and His Word. There is no holiness in our churches because they are ashamed to be holy. There’s no godly, holy preaching and no discipline. Fornicators, adulterers and sodomites fill our pulpits and our pews unashamedly. The preacher never preaches on sex sins and even ordains homosexuals and our women dress like whores and have multiple marriages like movie stars. “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness...” - (I Tim.2:9). Christian women are supposed to dress modestly and blush because of shameful women’s attire. We have no shame in our so- called churches and consequently no salt to keep our nation from going rotten.
But one day each person who has ever lived on planet earth, if he has rejected Christ and is ashamed of Him, will be ashamed of his sins at his judgment. “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt” - (Dan.12:2). Everlasting shame and coontempt. You will be ashamed forever and ever, amen.
We need to preach the truth of God’s Word on particular sins and then shame and guilt over sin will appear. Then we preach Jesus, the atonement and the robe of righteousness to cover their naked and sinful souls. “...Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed” - (Rom.10:11). Our sins are covered and we confess Jesus Christ freely and are not ashamed of Christ and will never, ever curse Him. Before we are saved and born again, we are ashamed of Christ and not ashamed of sin. When we’re saved we are ashamed of sin and not ashamed to confess Christ. I’m told that black people don’t blush, but I know for certain that black-hearted people don’t blush.
It is written of Christ - “...Who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of God” - (Heb.12:2). Christ was naked on the cross and didn’t have the loin cloth that you see on images. He became sin for us and the shame and nakedness of our sins hung on Him. “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” - (2 Cor.5:21). Adam and Eve were naked as they committed the first sin on the tree. And Christ our Savior was naked as He hung on the tree making atonement for our sins.
Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” - (2 Cor.5:17). Be ashamed of yours sins and repent and receive Christ before it’s eternally too late, or you will be ashamed forever in hell.
Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
