A video on ‘Isaiah 25:6, will Christians be drinking “fine wine” in heaven?,’ by Bill Rhetts
As it says in Jude, Christians are to “contend for the faith.” But it seems there’s an increasing need to ‘contend for soberness’ and sanctification amongst the brethren.
I was told by a Pastor (who is a user, and ‘proponent’ of alcohol consumption), that he looks forward to, and “can’t wait” to literally drink “fine wine” in heaven. He advised the verse he uses to support his desire, is Isaiah 25:6.
Isaiah 25:6 says, “And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”
“And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things,…. Which is to be understood, not of the ultimate glory of the saints in heaven; which is sometimes represented by a feast; and the participation of it, by sitting down with the saints at a table in the kingdom of God, and by drinking wine there, to which state the best things are reserved, but rather of the Gospel dispensation, which lies in the ministration of the word and ordinances; and which are ‘compared’ to a feast, which consists of the richest dainties, for the entertainment of the faith of God’s people; and this is made by the Lord himself, who is sovereign Lord of all, the King of kings; who sits at the table himself, and welcomes his guests, and is the sum and substance of the feast:” – John Gill
