First the man takes a drink
Then the drink takes a drink
Then the drink takes the man

- Japanese Proverb

The word 'alcohol' is said to come from the Arabic, Al-khul which means 'body-eating spirit', from which also we derive the English word 'ghoul', a malevolent spirit, ghost or a person interested in morbid or disgusting things, or a grave-robber. The ancient Arabs believed ghouls were demons who ate corpses.

In alchemy, alcohol is used to extract the soul-essence of an entity. Hence its use in extracting essences for essential oils and the sterilisation of medical instruments. By consuming alcohol into the body, it in effect extracts the very essence of the soul, allowing the body to be more susceptible to neighbouring entities most of which are of low psychic frequencies. This is the reason why we call certain alcoholic beverages 'spirits'. That is also why when people black out they don't remember what happened. Essentially, whilst unconscious, caused by a neurophysiological, chemical disruption in the brain's hippocampus, a region integral to memory formation, their body, whilst in a totally passive state, was possessed by another entity.

Alcohol interferes with the receptors in the hippocampus that transmit glutamate, a compound that carries signals between neurons. During this interference, alcohol prevents some receptors from working, while activating others. This process causes the neurons to create steroids that then prevent neurons from communicating with each other properly, thus disrupting long-term potentiation (LTP), a process believed necessary for learning and memory. From both a physical and a spiritual point-of-view, alcohol is seen to have a negative impact on human well-being. Alcohol is one of the most dangerous drugs in use by carnal man. Alcohol leads to demonic bondage and kills.

Alcohol is biologically toxic with a large proportion of heavy drinkers developping hepatitis and cirrhosis, serious alcoholic liver diseases. The impact of alcohol abuse on health, social relations and family life is well known. It undermines will by loosening those inhibitions which keep the flesh in check and drastically impairs spiritual discernment. But what does the Bible teach about alcohol?

Christendom has been divided over the alcohol question for a very long time now. One school maintains that alcohol may be consumed in moderation but the other says that alcohol brings nothing but evil and that it is best totally abstained from. The reason for the two positions is the difference between the Old and New Covenants. Alcohol consumption was permitted in moderation under the Old Covenant provided it was not mixed with drugs, a practice of the neighbouring pagan nations as well as the former inhabitants of the Promised Land. We are commanded to be "filled with the Ruach (Spirit)" instead of being inebriated with alcohol (Eph.5:18).

However, in anctipation of the New and Better Covenant (Heb.7:22) of Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) where every man is expected to be spiritually alert, and in which every believer is called to be a Cohen (Priest) after the Royal Order of Melchizedek (1 Pet.2:9) on duty 24/7 in their body of flesh, Levitical Cohenim (Priests) under the Old Covenant were required to totally abstain from alcohol whilst on duty in the Temple made of stone.

For these and other reasons Messianic Evangelicals do not believe alcohol consumption is permitted of true believers in the New Covenant of Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ). The only exception recorded in the Messianic Scriptures is for legitimate health reasons - a stomach complaint at a time when fresh water was hard to come by.
