In spite of the evil of strong drinks, it is unfortunate that many self-acclaimed children of God are now introducing ‘moderation’ to its consumption. This is one of the signs of the end time, which they themselves teach but fail to acknowledge that they are victims of.
Our memory verse of today describes wine as a mocker and strong drink as raging. A classic example of a victim of wine was Noah. The Bible says:
And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. – (Genesis 9:20-21)
Ordinarily, Noah the just man who found grace in sight of God would not have gone naked but for the influence of the wine on him. Little wonder Paul wrote in (1 Corinthians 6:12):
…all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
Noah was indeed mocked by the wine and likewise many others like him. Why would anyone want to keep indulging in a habit that is sure to ultimately destroy him or her?

Proverbs 31:4 also clearly states that alcohol is not meant to be consumed by kings and princes.
This Bible verse shows that Christians as kings under the King of kings must not consume alcoholic drinks, in order to be in our right minds at all times.
Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. – (Proverbs 31:6)
You cannot afford to be a friend of alcohol unless you are ready to perish.
May the Lord remove every deadly appetite for alcoholic drinks from any reader of this devotional still indulging in that habit, today, in the mighty name Jesus.
Anytime a drink is handed to you for consumption, ensure it contains no alcohol so you do not befriend a mocker that can destroy you.
