GOD Desires You to Live the Unintoxicated Life --Are You Obeying Him?

"God is looking to train a generation of un-intoxicated men and women to lead and model Christ’s righteousness in an intoxicated world. God wants men and women who do not succumb to the intoxicating influences that dull, cloud, neutralize, and inhibit their minds. Any desire, unrestrained by God’s grace can become an intoxicating idol. Things like: fashion, comfort, convenience, security, work, sports, and amusements can be as deadly and powerful as addictions to alcohol, drugs, and sex. First: Alcohol has positive effects. Proverbs 31:6 “give strong drink to”; I Timothy 5:23 “a little wine for the stomach”. Also the joy of the harvest, new wine, wedding feast where Jesus made wine and people observed they had “saved the best” (John 2:10). Second: Alcohol’s negative effects can lead to eternal destruction, and anyone who surrenders to alcohol, or any other mind-altering substance (drugs, chemicals) is part of the list of those who have become dominated by sin and not Christ and thus are slaves to sin (and not to Christ) and thus are eternally damned. Galatians 5:19-21 (NKJV) Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (201102; Proverbs-06)." from video introduction
