Sunday Daily Devotion By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Beware of Enticing Mockers



Memorise: Wine is a mocker, strong drink is
raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is
not wise. – Proverbs 20:1

Read: Genesis 19:30-38 (KJV)

30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the
mountain, and his two daughters with him; for
he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a
cave, he and his two daughters.
31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our

father is old, and there is not a man in the earth
to come in unto us after the manner of all the
earth:
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and
we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed
of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that
night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her
father; and he perceived not when she lay down,
nor when she arose.
34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the
firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay
yesternight with my father: let us make him
drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and
lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our
father.
35 And they made their father drink wine that
night also: and the younger arose, and lay with
him; and he perceived not when she lay down,
nor when she arose.
36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with
child by their father.
37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his
name Moab: the same is the father of the
Moabites unto this day.
38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and
called his name Benammi: the same is the father
of the children of Ammon unto this day.

MESSAGE:

There are many people who argue as to whether
it is a sin to take alcohol or not. This is
amazing; simply have to look at the fruit of an
action before you know whether it is good or
not. In our Bible reading, the acts of the children
of Lot wouldn’t have been possible if their father
had not been drunk. So in his senseless state of
mind, both daughters laid with him and
conceived from his seed. The children born
through this means became the Moabites and
the Ammonites who become sworn-enemies of
the children of Israel.

Wine is a mocker that leads to uncontrollable
behaviour. I have seen very quiet people who
will never, under normal circumstances, say
anything that will put them into trouble. But the
moment these people come under the influence
of strong drink, they become someone else.
There are many people who have lost precious
things under the influence of alcohol. Many have
lost their wives as a result of alcohol. With a
‘little shot’ many have been poisoned through
alcohol. There are people who have experienced
fatal accidents because they were not in control
of themselves. Some were duped because they
were under the influence of alcohol.

Unfortunately, the devil is always waiting for
such times when people are out of their senses
to strike. He allows some of them to suffer
damages which they may never recover from.

“Give strong drink unto him that is ready to
perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy
hearts.” - Proverbs 31:6

Those who cannot stay away from alcohol will
always be victims of wrong decisions. They will
never be able to judge well. Men of integrity who
value the life that God has given to them will
control themselves and not allow the desire of
the flesh to derail them.

Alcohol is an instrument of unrighteousness and
you should not yield to it. If you love God, it will
show in your attitude to such things. God wants
you to abstain from the old wine of sin and
embrace the new wine of life in the Spirit of God.
This is the wine of the Holy Spirit which is
totally devoid of the input of man. There is no
addition of chemical that will do your harm. The
new wine produces joy and happiness in the
Holy Ghost, while the old wine of flesh produces
death and shame.

You will not be a victim of
mockery in Jesus’ name.

Key Point: It is a sin to engage in what destroys
you.
