Would You Take Something That Can Kill You?

19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 BSB

The context of the verses mentioned above is referring to immorality. But, can it also be applied to other things? Yes. Anything that you would allow to harm your body is a sin. For example: taking illegal drugs of any kind. How about taking an injection to prevent you from getting sick but knowing that the injection you are going to take has the potential to kill you. Would you still take it, and if you do, are you sinning against the Lord?

You have two ways to go about it.

  1. If you have any doubts, don’t do it.

But the one who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that is not from faith is sin.

Romans 14:23 BSB

2. After you have prayed to the Lord for direction, wait patiently for it before you decide to take it.

Wait patiently for the LORD; be strong and courageous. Wait patiently for the LORD!

Psalm 27:14 BSB

We are living in a time where people are being pressured and manipulated to receive a substance into the body that hasn’t been properly tested with the time needed to make sure it’s safe.

The event that’s happening today worldwide is paving the way for the mark of the beast. Everyone in the future will be forced to put the mark (666) on their bodies or else face prison or death.

16 And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark—the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 Here is a call for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and that number is 666.

Revelation 13:16-18 BSB

Stay alert through God’s Word and prayer. Money is another element that motivates people to deceive others. And the closer we get to the return of Christ for the church, it will get much harder to detect.
