John 19:23 “Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

Have you ever wondered why the Bible was not silent about Jesus’ clothing at Golgotha, and how it was voted? Until it reaches the point of division into four (4) verses for the four soldiers who were there on the cross.?.

And the 5th one which is his coat to be voted on ?. It was not only written to make a story, that Jesus had five garments, but there was a heavy meaning behind it.

That is to show that he was not left with any clothes when he was crucified. He was crucified completely naked. It is impossible for some clothes to be cast, and divided, and then some are left to be nailed to the cross, the Scriptures do not show us that. What we see on the carved crosses or on the arrow that the Lord Jesus was crucified with a piece of cloth to cover him, is not true. The fact is that he was crucified completely naked . However in the time of Rome all criminals who were executed by crucifixion had to be crucified naked, so that they would not only die in torture but also die in shame.

Have you ever wondered why Christ allowed all this to happen to him, when he was completely able to avoid it? Do you think that was a shameful act?. It was a very shameful act, which I am sure even you would have been present when you would not have even dared to look at him on the cross in that state. But he did not feel shame, being kept naked, as long as you and I were saved. That is an extreme commitment.

He was not ashamed of me, nor was he ashamed of you, on the contrary the bible tells us he despised shame,

Hebrews 12: 2 “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God”.

You see, if you think it over, my brethren, you will see no reason for you to be ashamed of your Lord, in this evil world. You will not be ashamed to be called a non updated person, for him, you will see no reason to be afraid to proclaim his gospel.

Paul said ..

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”.

He also told Timothy the same words;

2Timothy 1:8a “Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord…”

This is not the time to think about how someone will see me, or how my friends will treat me, or how my neighbors will talk about me if I give my life to Christ.

Remember Jesus was not ashamed of you, when He was crucified naked in front of a crowd, in front of thousands of people at Golgotha, why are you ashamed of Him when you have not even reached the point of being stripped naked on the street for Him?

If you reject Him today when you come He will reject you as well.

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”.

Make a picture of you standing in front of millions upon millions of angels, and then Christ is ashamed of you in front of them, how will you feel? Over this bad situation,

So take up your cross and carry yourself to follow Christ. These are the last days, he is at the door to return. If you have not yet repented then this is your time, believe in Him and be baptized in the proper baptism by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins and He will give you His Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth.
