“But you gave the Nazirites wine to drink, And commanded the prophets saying, Do not prophecy!” Amos 2:12
The Nazirites were to be separated to serve the LORD, and not drinking was one of the things they didn’t do! Here they are given wine to stumble them, to make them more like the average folks! People can do that with preachers and teachers today by propping them up or encouraging them to preach what they want to hear, making them drunk on self!
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;” 2 Timothy 4:3
The word of God is always true, every last word! We can’t water it down to make it more palatable, or to fit our views! Unfortunately that’s what’s happening around us today! Be careful of using the word of God to fit your personal world view, instead look to it to get the LORD’s view on the world!
“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16
Today let us read the word of God, meditate on it and reflect it the best that we can!
“You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus.” 1 Peter 2:5
Let us be seeking the LORD, being living stones a royal priesthood sharing the good news of the LORD, His good news not our views! Have a blessed day!
