(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 6:12-14
(12) All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
(13) Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
(14) And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
MAY GOD FORBID!
Brethren, as humanity, our Father gave all things of creation for our sustenance and enjoyments, refer to book of Genesis 28-30, Genesis 9:1; also, he set up limitations, what was acceptable for human consumption, what not to eat, these are couple of scripture references, Genesis 2:17, Deut. 12; why?. because as chosen people of our Father, he did not choose us, set aside for fun sakes, he choose us as servants, vessels of glories, to be utilized for his purposes; if our lives are designed for special purposes, then we are special people, not just ordinarily, refer to 1 Peter 2:9; therefore, he desires to keep us in that status, to get closer, have one on one relationships with his chosen, set aside children; and we all know that our Father is Holy, dwells in righteousness, therefore, for him to have close relationship with souls born through sinful lineage, of Adam and Eve, in the garden of Eden, he desires that we maintain certain degree of sanctifications, for our own benefits, not that anyone will die instantaneously if they eat anything our Father has forbidden, or disobey his words, no, not at all; but everything he forbids humanity to eat or do, has unseen repercussions, either healthwise or spiritually unhealthy for our souls, spirits, and mortal bodies; therefore, as saved, sanctified, set aside people within the body of Christ, it is the will of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, that believers keep their vessels in holiness, members as instruments of righteousness, in sanctification and honour to him, his purposes; not in unlawful, sexual immoralities, excessive alcohol consumption, gluttonize; rather with praises, prayers, supplications, reading of his words, let us desire to have one on one relationships with our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.
Though we have the resurrection power of the Holy Sprit within our innermost spirits; certain behaviors that we engage ourselves, may be spiritually detrimental to our saved, sanctified, set aside vessels of honors; referring to the above text, Apostle Paul said, "All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any; therefore, let us exercise will powers, not to engage ourselves in everything that people of this world of darkness does, engage in what is appropriate for believers participations, let us not join multitudes to do evil works, walk in ungodliness, rather know what is befitting for good Christians, do those things, in other not to contaminate our vessels of honors, holy habitations of the Holy Spirit,; for we are a chosen generation, royal priesthood, a holy nation, peculiar people, with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; to praise, worship, serve him who called us out of darkness into his marvellous lights; peculiar people, are special, special people are royalties, and do not do what everyone does; therefore, let us not engage ourselves in ungodliness of this world, rather, do what Jesus will do; it is a simple concept!
Regardless of our perceptions, on what is right or wrong doctrine for the body of Christ; we have only one book of doctrines, the new and old Testament scriptures; therefore, let us refrain from endless arguments to prove what is acceptable or unacceptable in the faith of his righteousness; rather when in conflicts, speak truthfulness of matters, as written down in the scriptures, allow the Holy Spirit to guide, teach, inspire us with his wisdom; for our Father will honor his words, allow peace to reign supreme among brethren, together we stand as one body, with one Sheperd, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, divided, we work against one another, allow the enemy to cause havoc among brethren, the devil is a liar!
Dearly beloved, our bodies belong to Jesus Christ, as Christians, we dwell in his body, and are joint together, as one with him through the spirits; therefore, same way, Jesus was resurrected from the dead; someday, when we sleep in death, on the day of reconciliation; our Father will resurrect our spirits back to livings with his own spiritual powers, continue to live with Jesus Christ as joint heirs in eternity; therefore, let us put on happy faces, smiles, no matter what is our predicaments may be, hang on, there is hope for believers in eternal glory forever and evermore! Amen and Amen!
