THE HOLY SPIRIT OR ALCOHOL
ALCOHOLIC DRINKS AND WINES ARE NOT FOR KINGS AND PRIESTS
Who are the kings and priests?
Rev 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
Dangers of alcohol drinks and wines
The Bible says the alcoholic beverage must be avoided like a plague – Proverbs 31:4, because:
It leads to wrong decisions – Esther1:10. What the king would not normally do, he did under the influence of wine.
It leads astray – Proverbs20:1
It provides satanic leadership – Hosea 4:11, Isaiah5:22-23
It leads to confusion – Proverbs 23:29 – 30
Sexual immorality is associated with the spirit of alcohol – Proverbs 23:33, some of which have led to incest – Genesis 19:33-35
The spirit of alcohol makes the Holy Spirit to step aside in the lives of drunkards 1cor3:16-17 (It leads to defilement of the temple of God)
It ultimately leads to hell Galatians 5:21

The Holy Spirit helps in the work of redemption – John4:14, while the spirit of alcohol leads to eternal damnation – 5:21, Proverbs 31:33
The spirit of alcohol is associated with the spirit of lust and immorality while the Holy Spirit is associated with the Holy God and helps in the sanctification of believers – 2:13, 1Peter1:5, Romans15:16
The Holy Spirit empowers believers for exploits and good works Act 1:8, 10:38, while the spirit of alcohol empowers for the works of the flesh – 23:33-35, Gal5:19-21
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of holiness – Romans 1:4
The Holy Spirit dwells only in believers – Rom 8:9
Alcohol may be for others but not for 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.
