Words of Encouragement
Proverbs 28:4 They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.
Revelation 15:2-3 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
For Heaven’s Sake…
The Sabbath is like a wedding ring, as compared to all other rings. It is like a wife, as compared to all other women. It is a special symbol that we belong to God and that God is the one who makes us holy. (Read Ezekiel 20:12, 20.) To fail to remember the Sabbath means we deny God as our God. It is a special day of worship and sacred conversation with Him and with those who are His. No work is to be done on it. We are not to even speak of common things. It is a sacred day of rest from the common things of life.
The Sabbath was made to serve man, according to Mark 2:27. Jesus is the Man, but He is also God. He is “Lord also of the Sabbath” (Mark 2:28). “The Sabbath is all about Jesus,” says Pastor Flemons. It is the day in which we serve Jesus. It is the weekly anniversary, which we prepare for all week long: six full days. When we are truly prepared for the Sabbath, it will be a special blessing to God and to us.
Exodus 20:8-11 Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. (King James Version)
For Health’s Sake…
In women the percentage of water is lower and the level of estrogen is higher than that in men. Because of this, the breakdown of alcohol in the stomach before it reaches the bloodstream is suppressed in women. That’s why women tend to get a bit woozy quite quickly.
“In 2009, a large study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute examined the rates of cancer among more than 1.28 million women in the United Kingdom and compared these rates across weekly drinking habits. They found that any level of alcohol consumption is linked to a higher risk of certain cancers—those of the pharynx, esophagus, larynx, rectum, liver and breast—and that the risk increased for each drink per day.”
Thousands of years before and in the years since the 2009 study, the Bible has warned about the dangers of wine to both women and men. It says that wine brings sorrow and woe. It causes contentions. It affects speech, causes babbling. It leads to wounds for no reason and intoxicates the body so that the eyes become red. Wine drinking leads to stronger alcoholic beverage consumption. When it is red and sparkles or moves by itself, the Bible says we shouldn’t even watch it. For in the end, “it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.” (See Proverbs 23:20, 21, 29-35.)
But you say that the Bible does say somewhere that you can drink wine. Isaiah 65:8 says that you should drink the wine when it is still in the cluster; for in it is a blessing. That means drink grape juice. Grape juice that is not fermented is alkaline and is healing to an upset stomach. That is the wine 1 Timothy 5:23 is referring to. It is an antacid. Fermented grape juice is acidic and is harmful to an already upset stomach. The wine that Jesus made from water for the wedding was like that found in the cluster. It was refreshing and healing.
