Scripture has much to say regarding the drinking of alcohol (Leviticus 10:9; Numbers 6:3; Deuteronomy 29:6; Judges 13:4, 7, 14; Proverbs 20:1; 31:4; Isaiah 5:11, 22; 24:9; 28:7; 29:9; 56:12).
However, Scripture does not necessarily forbid a Christian from drinking beer, wine, or any other drink containing alcohol. In fact, some Scriptures discuss alcohol in positive terms. Ecclesiastes 9:7 instructs, “Drink your wine with a merry heart.” Psalm 104:14-15 states that God gives wine “that makes glad the heart of men.” Amos 9:14 discusses drinking wine from your own vineyard as a sign of God’s blessing. Isaiah 55:1 encourages, “Yes, come buy wine and milk…”
80% people in ministry compromises the scriptures.
They dont study scriptures…. Only read the bible to find scriptures to support their opinions. This is the reason why today only 20% of christians can understand the bible and its contexts.
Did you know that Christmas was celebrated thousands of years before Jesus was even born?
Although the whole world is celebrating Christmas as a Christian holiday, including millions of non-believers, please take this moment to look throughout every page of the Bible,
at the end you will not find even a single word of Christmas being celebrated by any of God’s people!
It is not even mentioned once in the
whole Bible, neither by Jesus or by any of his apostles before or after the death of Jesus.
Yet on the other hand the pagans and the heathen world observed 25th December for two thousands years before Jesus was even born! December 25 was a date to celebrate the birth of the Sun god Tammuz.
Tammuz was the child of Nimrod the man we read about in Gen 10:8-10, Nimrod was very wicked king before the Lord and he was the first great King of Babylon. After he defeated many nations and conquered them Nimrod claimed to be greater than the Supreme
God. He commanded the whole empire to worship him as a god.
After the death of Nimrod Queen Ishtar
commanded the whole empire to worship Nimrod as Baal the Sun god.
Ishtar proclaimed that Nimrod was taken to the Sun, and he had to be
worshipped as the Sun god.
Tammuz was the only child of Nimrod, and he was born on 25th December: Tammuz was a great king who always
defeated his enemies. However, he was just like his father Nimrod in doing great evil before the Lord.
Tammuz was killed by bush pigs and after his death Queen Ishtar commanded that Tammuz had to
be worshipped as the child of the god Baal who was Nimrod.
From that time in history, it was Queen Ishtar who built a strong foundation of paganism which spread across the whole world that December 25th was to celebrate the birth of Tammuz, the child of the god of Baal.
Thus, in paganism worshippers are worshipping Nimrod, Queen Ishtar and Tammuz.
Nimrod from that time was to be honored every Sunday as the Sun god Baal, Queen Ishtar on Easter (the word Ishtar is where the word Easter comes from) and Tammuz was to be worshipped on 25 December;
These are the three great holidays that were set aside to celebrate these three people who showed great wickedness before the Lord.
Indeed, Christmas was celebrated thousands of years before Jesus was even born. During Christmas, One of
their customs was to decorate a tree.
(Jeremiah 10:3-4) in this chapter God is telling us not to learn the way of the heathens, and not to even practice it.
For God condemns all customs of the heathens. Yet we see these same customs exist today and the holiday is now called Christmas with the Christmas tree.
The Scriptures describe these Christmas celebration as idolatry! Some claim that this chapter of Jeremiah 10:3-4 refers to idols being made from the trees: this maybe true, but does God approve of trees being
used to worship Him? Is there a command in the Scriptures allowing us to do so?
The answer is very simple, NO! Isaiah 40:19, 41:23) 45:20, 46:17, Psalm 115:4-7, Habakkuk 2:19). December 25 is always a Sun Baal worship holiday because of the birth of Tammuz one of the Sun gods.
On the Christmas tree you find people put the Sun, moon or the Star on top their Christmas tree!
Some people will say that the Star on the tree represent the Star which appeared when Jesus was born, but where does the Scriptures approve of such things?
Some people place an angel on their Christmas trees and claims that this is fine, Oh, let us see what Bible is teaching us; 2 Corinth 11:14 for Satan Himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Putting an angel on the Christmas trees is synonymous with placing a star on top of the tree, because both images represents light, or the Sun.
But many people claim that the angel they place on the Christmas trees is a
heavenly one; Exodus 20:4 says that thou shall not make into thee any graven image, or any likeness of
anything that is in heaven above.
Angels are in heaven above, and God forbids having images of anything that’s in heaven above for the purpose of worship.
Heathens hate God’s commandments because they want to worship their own gods without anyone condeming them with the word of the Supreme God.
Under Rome, December 25 was always a date to celebrate the birth of the Sun god. in A.D 324, for the first time
under the Roman Emperor Justinian (A.D-527-565) it was first recognized as an official Christian holiday.
An old Babylonian festival played a major part in the choice of this particular day.
Paul warns us about this evil festival by these words in 2 Corinth 11:3-4 “I am afraid that your minds will be corrupted and that you will abandon your full and pure devotion to Christ in the same way that Eve was deceived by snake’s clever lies. For you to gladly tolerate anyone who comes to you preaching a different Jesus, not the one we preached; and you accept a spirit and a gospel completely different from the Spirit and the Gospel you received from us.”
Christmas and Easter: these have nothing to do with Jesus, but much to do with paganism religion that was put into Christianity by Roman Catholic under the authority of Satan.
Place all these festivals to the test
of the Scripture, if you are faithful to the truth and you able to see that they have nothing to do with Our Lord Jesus.
There is no doubt we are leaving in the last days, where Satan is very desperate to control every aspect of religion in order to get the worship from ignorant people who did not center their faith in the God’s word.
The Jesus who is honored on Christmas and Easter is a false Jesus as Paul clearly tells us.
Jesus is not honored through paganism ways of worship, but He is only honored in obedience to God’s commandments. This is the time for us to be separated with the world, (James 2:4).
Truth Sets Free
A national cake turns into a failed empowerment scheme after 1316 applications of poor youts only 152 non poor artist benefitted.
It is failed because in zambia we’ve got a lot of strangling artists who can not even manage to book a bus for there low standared production and they had high expectations after hearing their Father of the nation anouncing that he has given them K30.000.000.00 to empower them.
Few managed the registration thinking things may workout if they did so unfortunately the money went only to selected non poor artists who can even manage to book 10 buses and do a high standared project what a shame.
It is a shamefull and desapointing develompment. Good luck to evevly one who deserved it.
