Ephesians 5:18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 And do not get drunk with wine, in which is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; [To be filled with the Spirit is have your thoughts, words, actions controlled by the Spirit; which is contrary to the current Pentecostal movement of drunkenness, revelry, screaming, shouting, foolishness, collapsing, twitching, jerking, or uncontrolled laughter — all of which evidence fruits of the flesh and are the opposite of self-control, peace, and gentleness, which are fruits of the Holy Spirit. Regarding false prophets, Jesus told us: "you will know them by their fruits;" do not be misled.]
