What does the Bible have to say about drinking?
If you’re an alcoholic or know one that is does this seem familiar to you? Alcoholics are caught in a cycle and without Jesus Christ in their lives they will never get off that cycle.
The word Carnival is something I will be exploring very soon. Alcohol had a big part in the word Carnival.
Alcoholics need a friend to share this information with them. Jesus Christ can help them out of their endless cycle. Next I have a list of Bible references to alcohol and you might have to blow this up a bit because it was hard to get all this information in one slide.
What exactly can take down a wall? A stick of Dynamite? A sledgehammer? Walls can be breached quite easily so why put enormous amounts of money into a wall? Right now walls are very much the talk of the country. At one time both parties were interested in a wall on our Southern border. At separate times of course. Why bother? It is easy to take down a wall. Look at the wall between East and West Germany and how easy it came down once the effort was made to do so. Did you know that a wall existed, a very formidable wall, that lasted through the entire Old Testament and the Gospels and ended just about the time of Stephen. It was up there in a long time and it was called a wall of partition that separated Jews and Gentiles.
Examine what the Jews had here compared to the Gentiles. The Gentiles were in a sorry state but God had a secret that he had kept within himself from the beginning of time. It was to be released to the Apostle Paul.
When the wall partition came down salvation for both Jews and Gentiles was possible through the blood of Jesus Christ that he shed on the cross for them.
He himself is our peace. I only wish more people knew that and would accept him as their lord and savior. Jesus Christ tore down this wall. Throughout his Earthly Life Time he came to his own and his own rejected him. He sent out his disciples to the Jews only as evidenced in Matthew 10:4-6 and 15:24. His ministry was to the Jews or to the circumcised according to Romans 15:8. Jesus once called a gentile woman a dog and just think what kind of publicity he would have got today off that statement? The me-too movement would have been all over Him. But through his blood shed on the cross he pulled down that middle wall of partition and pulled it down for good. For the good of mankind. He has made Jew and Gentile one in him.
Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Christadelphians are a classic case of cognitive dissonance and ignorance. There is so much evidence regarding the Triune God in both Testaments yet they deny it. They regard God only. To them Jesus is a created being and the Holy Spirit is the force of God. In Acts 13:1-2 that Force speaks verbal words assigning Paul his destination. If you go to the category Belgian I have ample information about the Triune godhead that should convince anyone with an open mind and an Open Bible why the Christadelphian problem stems from ignorance. They believe they are going through the tribulation hour which means they are Kingdom people. They do not believe in the Rapture of the body of Christ. Their biggest problem is they do not know how to rightly divide the word of God. I didn’t either for a Time but I do now. What holds for them also goes for the Restored Church of God and they are very similar in their inner core beliefs. Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. Unfortunately the same holds true for the opposite. Train up a child in the way he should not go and when he is old he will not depart from it. It takes more than a crowbar to pry someone away from a cult. It takes spiritual intercession and prayer. Pray for those Bound by cognitive dissonance and ignorance to come to the Glorious light of the truth of the Gospel that they might be saved.
27 Roman Catholics have left the RCC since Kent has been commenting here of those that left the majority have left on what Kent has replied to my posts. A young priest said he left the church after reading about boasting about his church. He told me that the priest in charge of the parish spoke that way too and he’s been feeling that’s not the way to be.
I’ve advised everyone that left to find a Bible believing church that is non denominational to avoid jumping the fireman into the fire. A young woman who has been emailing me thanked me for my help. She had so liked the singing in mass. I showed the prophet Amos who said,
She was heartsick over the child molestation crisis and how the church had tried to cover it up. Pray to God to mightily continue to use Kent to drive away even more Catholics from their faith.
In a good Bible church they will return to the Scriptures alone without all that endless Roman Catholic Pomp with Little circumstance.
I Know a Man who claims to be a Christian yet carries a massive Grudge against psychiatry. In his mind he would like to destroy them or kill them or blow up their Professional Buildings. I have often given him these two verses. If he can’t forgive the psychiatrists then God won’t forgive him his trespasses. He tries to justify his behavior by saying that he is like Jesus with the Pharisees. But I don’t recall Jesus killing any Pharisee or blowing up their synagogues. To get even with his enemy he will justify nearly everything. He wears his Grudge like a badge. He says psychiatrists have ruined his life. Even when told that God will not forgive his trespasses unless he forgives others, he even tries to justify that. He has an unrepentant heart that is as cold as ice. If he doesn’t change that unrepentant heart will follow him into hell. If Jesus could forgive his toormentors from the cross then this man can forgive the psychiatrists that supposedly ruined his life. Jesus said, father Forgive them for they know not what they do. My friend would counter that by saying, but they knew what they were doing to me. Justify, justify, and justify. I ask for prayer for this man that the Lord Jesus will heal his heart and restore unto him peace. Forgetting is forgiveness. He needs to move on with his life anew. Pray to that end please.
