Why do you believe you're a Christians when Jesus said you have to "prove" you're a Christian (II Timothy 4:5)?
JESUS PROMISED "PROOF"
Of "POWER" (Acts 1:8) after Holy Spirit baptism (Acts 1:5)!
"Spiritual gifts" (I Corinthians 12:7-10) after Holy Spirit baptism
(I Corinthians 12:13)!
"Signs following" (Mark 16:17-18) after Holy Spirit baptism
Where is your "CONFIRMATION that the Lord is working with you with signs following" (Mark 16:20)?
GOD WANTS "PROOF" (II Timothy 4:5)!!!@@@

I know that I am a Christian because I know what the word "Christian" means and I know that I meet that definition.
Clearly you are badly mistaken about 2Ti 4:5.
- Jesus is not speaking
- The author (Paul, not Jesus) does not instruct us to prove that we are Christians. In fact, he does not instruct us to do anything remotely resembling that. Instead, he instructs Timothy - the pastor of a church - regarding things that he - as pastor of that church - ought to do and be, and none of them are "prove that you are a Christian".

I believe I am a christian because I prove my faith to Jesus and god everyday.

Lots of people claim they are; yet are hiding behind their lies.
The Bible states that when the man ends up destroying this whole planet only 144,000 people will go to Heaven then!

Why do you assume that I believe I'm a Christian because I've not claimed to be one, duh?

First off, I don't see this saying one needs to prove they're a "Christian", logically the person already has proven their faith because he talks about proof of the ministry,
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry
A true disciple is one that sells all they have denies themself, and takes their cross. And there are almost No "christians" that do this.
Salvation is a free gift, just for the asking, we are saved by faith and grace and sometimes exalted by meritorious life style. We are judged by our works, everyone, and rewarded accordingly, a true Christian becomes like a saint and does the works of Jesus maybe even including the works of Abraham

I am not what would be called a Christian in today's world. I am thankful to God for that.

I don't believe that I am a 'christian' at all.
All Jesus has ever done is make vacant proclamations
and hide in the 1200-page dump that he still can't seem to crawl out of.
Jesus has yet to "prove" that he is the son of God.
The bible is not proof ... and Jesus's "say-so" isn't either.
