Leviticus‬ ‭10‬:‭8‬-‭10‬ ‭AMP‬‬ “Then the Lord spoke to Aaron, saying, “Do not drink wine or intoxicating drink, neither you nor your sons with you, when you come into the Tent of Meeting, so that you will not die—it is a permanent statute throughout your generations— and to make a distinction and recognize a difference between the holy (sacred) and the common (profane), and between the [ceremonially] unclean and the clean;”

A permanent statue throughout the generations means it is a commandment that stands forever. The New Testament does not give us the ability to drink alcoholic beverages. Although it does not mention drugs, alcoholic beverages do imply the context of all illegal substances, smoking, and drugs that will affect our consciousness.

‭‭Why is this command given? Scripture says so you won’t die.
We are distinguished and set apart based on whether we decide to follow God’s word or not and the result is life or death.
