ALCOHOLIC DRINKS AND WINES ARE NOT FOR KINGS AND PRIESTS

  1. a. Who are the kings and priests?
    Revelation 1:6 says if you have been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ you are a king and a priest. When we are united with Christ as members of His body, we join in His priestly work of reconciling God and people - 1Peter 2:9

  2. b. Dangers of alcohol drinks and wines
    The Bible says the alcohol beverage must be avoided like a plague -Proverb 31:4, because :

    • It leads to wrong decision - Esther 1:10 , What the King would normally not do , he did under the influence of wine
    • It leads astray- proverbs 29 vs 1
    • It provides satanic leadership Hosea 4:11 ,Isaiah 5:22-23

    It ultimately leads to hell. Galatians 5:21.

  6. The Holy Spirit empowers believers for exploits and good works. Acts 1:8,10:38, while the spirit of alcohol empowers for the works of the flesh. Prov.23:33-35, Galatians 5:19-21.

  8. The Holy Spirit dwells only in believers. Rom. 8:9. The difference is endless.

      **CONCLUSION**
    

Alcohol may be for others but not for the kings. Anytime you take what kings are forbidden to take, you become less of the king you were meant to be. In this regard, such violator will find it difficult to operate as a king.
