DON’T PLAY WITH FIRE (3/5)

LEVITICUS 10:8-11, I SAMUEL 1:3-8

BROTHERS JAMES WELDON JOHNSON/JOHN R. JOHNSON MUST OF HAD THE BROTHERS ELEAZAR/ITHAMAR WHO WE FIND IN LEVITCUS 10 . . .

“LEST OUR HEARTS, DRUNK WITH THE WINE OF THE WORLD, WE FORGET THEE.” FOR IN LEVITICUS 10:8-11, WE FIND THE COMMAND AND WARNING DIRECTLY FROM GOD TO AARON . . .

GOD OFTEN TIMES REMIND/INFORMS US OF THOSE THINGS WE SHOULD NOT DO, SHOULD – AVOID, LEST WE DERAIL, DELAY, OR CAUSE OURSELF TO BE DENIED THE BENEFITS ASSOCIATED WITH OUR DESTINY (2X) . . .

THE ISSUE OF GOD’S REPRESENTATIVE, THE PRIEST (OT), WE – THE PRIESTLY NATION (NT) MUST BE CAREFUL TO ALWAYS PRESENT OURSELVES AS VESSELS OF SOBER SPIRITS CAPABLE OF OPERATING UNDER THE HOLY SPIRIT SO THAT ONE MIGHT BE EFFECTIVE IN OFFERING AND PERFORMING THEIR SERVICE TO GOD WITH A CLEAR MIND.

IN OTHER WORDS, OUR HIGH OUGHT NOT COME FROM: E.J, CORVOISSIEUR, MICHELOB, HEINEKEN, BUDWEISER, BUDLIGHT, OLD ENGLISH OR ANY OTHER MALT LIQUOR . . .

BUT RATHER WE ARE COMPELLED TO ENTER INTO HIS GATES . . .

HIGH OFF OF KNOWING WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR US, WHO HE IS TO US, AND WHERE HE HAS BROUGHT US.

TO QUOTE JAMES WELDON JOHNSON “THOU WHO HAST BROUGHT US THUS FAR ON THE WAY.”

TO QUOTE THE VIRGINIA SLIMS BILLBOARD “THOU WHO HAST BROUGHT US FROM A MIGHTY LONG WAY.”

BEING ABLE TO PRAISE, WORSHIP, AND HONOR GOD WITH AND IN A SOBER STATE OF MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT IS CALLED FOR THROUGHOUT THE PAGES OF THE BIBLE.

PROVERBS 31:4-5 “IT IS NOT FOR KINGS, O LEMUEL-

NOT FOR KINGS TO DRINK WINE

NOT FOR RULERS TO CRAVE BEER

LEST THEY DRINK AND FORGET WHAT THE LAW DECREES.”

EZEKIEL 44:21 “NO PRIEST IS TO DRINK WINE WHEN HE ENTERS THE INNER COURT.”

I TIMOTHY 3:1-3 PARAPHRASE “IF ANYONE SETS HIS HEART ON BEING AN OVERSEER, HE MUST NOT BE GIVEN TO DRUNKENNESS.”

CEMETARIES AND MORTUARIES ARE CONSTANT REMINDERS OF THE WARNING GOD CAUTIONED AARON AND HIS SONS IN LEVITICUS 10 ABOUT “BEING DRUNK ON THE WRONG SPIRIT CAN BE DEADLY/HAVE SOME LIFE CHANGING CONSEQUENCES.”

CONSIDER LOT . . .

HOW MANY OF US, EVEN THOUGH GOD HAS FORGIVEN US/BLESSED US HAVE REMINDERS OF THE TIME WE DIDN’T KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN?

IN THE STORY OF SAMSON, WE SEE THE PROHIBITION AGAINST INTOXICATING DRINKS/ANYTHING THAT WOULD HINDER OUR WALK/GROWTH WITH GOD IN THE VOW OF A NAZARITE.

A VOW WHERE ONE WAS NOT TO TOUCH/EAT ANYTHING UNCLEAN/DEAD (SEPARATION). NOT SHAVE HIS HEAD AS A SIGN OF HIS COVERING BY GOD (CONSECRATION). A VOW NOT TO DRINK INTOXICATING DRINKS (ABSTAINING). A VOW THAT IN SUMMARY STATES, IF ONE BELONGS TO GOD, THEY MUST REMAIN SOBER IN ORDER TO BE USED BY GOD.

THAT’S THE WARNING GOD IS ISSUING IN LEVITICUS 10 TO AARON/HIS SONS. IF YOU’RE GOING TO BE USED BY ME, YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE YOUR HEAD, HEART, HANDS RIGHT WITH ME.

YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE YOUR HEAD RIGHT – THINK RIGHT

HEART RIGHT – LOVE RIGHT

HANDS RIGHT – ACT RIGHT . . .

HANNAH’S STORY . . .

BIRTH TO SOMETHING NEW . . .

UNDERSTAND . . . UNDERSTOOD . . .

DISAPPOINTMENTS OF LIFE . . .

YOU COULD THAT BECAUSE HER HEART WAS RIGHT . . .

LOOK AT HER RESUME’ – ALL THAT SHE WENT THROUGH. . ., YET SHE KEPT THINKING “NO MATTER WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH,” I CAN COME THROUGH, I CAN GET THROUGH, IF I MAINTAIN A RIGHTFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD (WORSHIP) . . .
