Why does the spelling look unusual?
Be ye therefore followers of God, as deare children.
And walke in loue, as Christ also hath loued vs, and hath giuen himselfe for vs, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling sauour;
But fornication and all vncleannesse, or couetousnesse, let it not be once named amongst you, as becommeth Saints:
Neither filthinesse, nor foolish talking, nor iesting, which are not conuenient: but rather giuing of thankes.
For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor vncleane person, nor couetous man who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdome of Christ, and of God.
Let no man deceiue you with vaine words: for because of these things commeth the wrath of God vpon the children of disobedience.
Bee not yee therefore partakers with them.
For yee were sometimes darkenesse, but now are yee light in the Lord: walke as children of light,
(For the fruite of the spirit is in all goodnesse and righteousnesse & trueth.)
Proouing what is acceptable vnto the Lord:
And haue no fellowship with the vnfruitfull workes of darkenesse, but rather reproue them.
For it is a shame euen to speake of those things which are done of them in secret.
But all things that are reprooued, are made manifest by the light: for whatsoeuer doth make manifest, is light.
Wherfore hee saith: Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall giue thee light.
See then that yee walke circumspectly, not as fooles, but as wise,
Redeming the time, because the dayes are euill.
Wherefore be ye not vnwise, but vnderstanding what the will of the Lord is.
And bee not drunke with wine, wherein is excesse: but bee filled with the Spirit:
Speaking to your selues, in Psalmes, and Hymnes, and Spirituall songs, singing and making melodie in your heart to the Lord,
Giuing thankes alwayes for all things vnto God, and the Father, in the Name of our Lord Iesus Christ,
Submitting your selues one to another in the feare of God.
Wiues, submit your selues vnto your own husbands, as vnto the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife, euen as Christ is the head of the Church: and he is the sauiour of the body.
Therefore as the Church is subiect vnto Christ, so let the wiues bee to their owne husbands in euery thing.
Husbands, loue your wiues, euen as Christ also loued the Church, and gaue himselfe for it:
That he might sanctifie & cleanse it with the washing of water, by the word,
That hee might present it to himselfe a glorious Church, not hauing spot or wrinckle, or any such thing: but that it should bee holy and without blemish.
So ought men to loue their wiues, as their owne bodies: hee that loueth his wife, loueth himselfe.
For no man euer yet hated his owne flesh: but nourisheth and cherisheth it, euen as the Lord the Church:
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
For this cause shall a man leaue his father and mother, and shall be ioyned vnto his wife, and they two shalbe one flesh.
This is a great mysterie: but I speake concerning Christ and the Church.
Neuerthelesse, let euery one of you in particular, so loue his wife euen as himselfe, and the wife see that she reuerence her husband.

flew from every appearance of sin. You are Christ representative here on earth. A man that is filled with the holy ghost will have no interest in drinking alcoholic drink. It sound so bad to advice someone to drink strong drink. Be careful on ur advice

For God is love and we must love one another as God loves us. Jesus is so faithful to his promises and we must give thanks to his precious blood that shed for us. God anointed the couple as a husband and a wife. We must submit ourselves as a Couple in Christ. Thanks God for his love, Jesus will never ever stop loving us. Amen

There is also another unsuspected aspect that we are of his flesh and bones as Adam is from the flesh and bones of the elohim, his biologic procreator. The Bible says that Adam is the son of god elohim . This elohim, contrary to human doctrines, is not the Father YHVH whom no man has seen. This elohim was a cestial man but physical see godeloah.webnode.fr the-creatures the-physical-nature-of-the-celestial-creatures .

The bible has several referrencies pertaining to wine or intoxication, more especially, the christians that desire to be or become the temple of the Holy Ghost are warned to take neither of the two. Leviticus 10:9-10

Beautiful passage of scripture. Sin is a time problem. I meet Jesus in chronos so I can live in kairos. Both words are Greek words which mean time. A chronos mindset we think of 24 hrs in a day things to do in a day in so much time in this life time plays a factor with everything we do. next life we leave time or chronos and go into eternity. I waste a lot of time in chronos Im busy about my Fathers business in kairos. While in chronos Im playing with my life. I live in laziness not realizing my time on this earth is running out. In kairos I spend every chance I get preaching to a dying world. I take avantage of this little time I have. I wake up early with Jesus I have breakfast with Him lunch and dinner . I sleep with my Jesus. I lay my head upon His breast and He holds me in His arms. I want more of my Jesus. What about you.
