Msg #2210 Wine Women Weed Drugs & Gambling
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
Proverbs 31 gives a king's word about women, wine, work and a wife. It is the “thus saith the Lord” prophecies that his mother taught him and it brings light on the first two “W”s of the five vices we exposed last week, wine and women (from acronymWWW.DG). King Lemuel writes “Give not they strength unto women, nor they ways to that which destroyeth kings”(Prov.31:3).
Solomon already described “the simple ones... void of understanding” who are seduced by the harlot, “yea many strong men have been slain by her... Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death” (Prov.7:1-27).
The Bible word “fornication” expresses illicit sex, or any sin which is “foreign” to God's plan for human sexuality. Our society now wallows in all such vile foreign use of sex. In the New Testament fornication is translated from the Greek word “porneia” which ties straight to today's common sin of pornography. It is foreign to sexual purity, it is fornication.
A vice latches onto ones life before they know what is happening. A Christian is without excuse, God's word gives ample warning about all five WWW.DG vices. What modernist preachers say about a little wine is a lie; read what King Lemuel says in Prov.31:4-7. Know that God says, “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. … Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.” (Prov.20:1, 23:31-32). God calls for abstinence.
Locked in Satan's vice people say, “I can quit anytime!” They can't. Only the Truth, in person, can set a Christian free from Satan's vice (John 8:31-32).
