Isaiah 28:7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; The priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, They are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; They err in vision, they stumble in judgment. 8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, So that there is no place clean.
In our society today people are really into drinking alcohol. Even those in the ministry want to get their hands on the bottle, the drink. God warned His people of the dangers of drink. It caused good people to make mistakes. It caused people who were serving Him to quit serving Him and drift off into sin. The religious leaders even made the same mistakes. They never intended for the drink to take over their lives but it did. It swallowed them up. They messed up on what God wanted from them. They didn’t make good decisions. They ended up sick and messed up.
Do you really want to go down that path? Do you want to take a chance like that when you have seen and know what alcohol can do to you? I sure hope not.
