Let’s get our father to drink wine and then lie with him and preserve our family line through out father That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in a lay with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up. The next day, the older daughter said to the younger,’ Last night I lay with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight, and you comeo in and lie with him so we can preserve our family line through our father. So they got their father to drink wine that night that night, and the younger daughter went along.

and lay with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay down o when she got up.

This story comes from Genesis and is about Lot, who sinned by allowing his daughters get drink sufficiently, that he didn’t know what was going on. The elder daughter conspired with her younger sister to lay down with her father. Lot was guilty of allowing himself to give in to the wine, drinking it to excess. The younger daughter performed and repeated the sin with her father, in getting her father drunk and them taking advantage of him, even though Lot did not remember either encounter.

Drunkenness overcame Lot and he was taken advantage of both of his daughters. Drunkenness allows a person to be manipulated by other persons for their selfish interests. No purpose justifies intoxicating and manipulating another person, and certainly there are no logical excuses for the actions taken.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY:

Precious Abba, forgive us when we fall into the trap is sin. For when we sin, it is in full view of Your gaze. The end result separates us from You, and the only option we have is to come before Your throne of grace with penitent hearts, seeking forgiveness which will restore our relationship with You. It is in Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

Christians aren’t perfect…………, but they are forgiven

KNOWING GOD:

Hannah was observed praying in her heart, and her lips were praying in her heart, but her voice was unheard. Eli thought she was drunk and said to her, ‘How long will keep on going getting drunk?’ Ge Get rid of your wine.’ Not so, my lord rid of your wine’ ‘If not, my lord,’ Hannah replied, ‘I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer: I was pouring out my soul to the Lord.’” (1st Samuel:1-5)

An interesting survey can be made of passages like (Acts 2:13-15 and Epesians5-18), in which behavior is confused between “filled with the spirits and one who is filled with he Spirit.’ A conclusion to be reached is that euphoric level of life brought on by the use of alcohol pales in comparison to the sustaining euphoria brought by the Spirit of God.

I AM:

Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks till they are in

flamed with their wine, but they have no regard for the deeds of he Lord, no respect for the work if his hands. Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks.” (Isaiah 5:11-12; 22)

SECOND THOUGHT of the DAY:

For John came neither eating, nor drinking, and they say,’He has a demon. The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, and a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.” But wisdom is proved right by hear actions.’” (Matthew11:18-19)

The difference in the practice of john, the Baptist, a Nazirite (Numbers 6:1-21, and Jesus were manipulated by Jesus’ enemies. The point of the cynical attacks was not the drinking or non drinking wine. There is absolutely no basis for attacks on Jesus or John. To know Christ is to know the Father, Thus both charges are mute and without merit of any kind. The Pharisees revealed that they would do whatever they could to to try and slander Jesus or John, and truth had no factor in their activities.
