Our bodies, as well as our souls, have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, we were bought at a price, we belong to God. The believer’s body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6: 19–20). The word of God commend us to glorify Jesus on our body and spirit.
We are Christ’s ambassadors, delivering God’s message to a dying world (2 Corinthians 5: 20). What message does the tattoo send, and will it aid or detract from representing Christ as you share the gospel?
Whatever does not come from faith is sin (Romans 14: 23), I would love the person that is getting a tattoo, should be fully convinced that it is “God’s will”.
In Genes 4: 15 God was the first to use a mark on Cain body.
We cannot leave the discussion of tattoos without looking at the Old Testament law that prohibited tattoos and PIERCING: “Do not cut your bodies for the DEAD or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19: 26-37 ).
The reason for the prohibition of tattoos and PIERCING in this passage is because God was not getting the praise He rightfully deserve. tattooing and PIERCING was a pagan practice connected with idolatry and superstition. It was probably common for the pagans to mark their skin with the name of a false god or with a symbol honoring some idol or a dead person. God was very displeased with that kind of practice, He demanded that the Israelites be different, and they should not bear the name of a false god or someone that is dead on their bodies.
While the New Testament believers are not under the Mosaic Law, if a Christian chooses to get a tattoo, it should never be for superstitious reasons or to promote worldly philosophy or someone that is dead.
The bottom line is that getting a tattoo is not a sin, what is sinful is who you giving the glory, is it Jesus or other god’s?
Jh 16: 14 one thing I am sustained, if the Holy Spirit is not in your heart, you will never glorify Jesus on your body, because the Holy Spirit mission is to give all the glory to the wonderful name of Jesus only.
Rev 22: 4 all of us that are in Christ, when we see Jesus, His wonderful name will be on our foreheads for all eternity, on our glorious body.
Let us not be a shame of glorifying the wonderful name of Jesus on our sinful body.
Lk 9: 26 Jesus said whoever is ashamed of Me and my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him I will be ashamed when I come in my glory. The time is at hand, we are living in the last days, let us make a stand for Jesus and glorify His wonderful name on our foreheads, for the world to know we love Jesus and will die for Him.
In Ezekiel 9: 1-11 God send six men and one of them had a writer’s “INKORN” to mark His faithful servants on their foreheads. In Rev 7: 3 God send His angels to sealed the hundred and forty-four thousand on their foreheads with His name Rev 14: 1-3.
In Rev 22: 4 when we see Jesus face, His wonderful name will be on our foreheads for all eternity.
In Rev 3: 15-22 Jesus said do not be lukewarm, be zealous and repent so that you could seat on His throne with Him.
Let us remember the words of Jesus in Mt 7: 13-27, many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name?, cast out demons in your name, and done wonders in your name? And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.
The words of Jesus our Almighty God in Matthew 12: 30-31. He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.
The Unpardonable Sin
31“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. 32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him;
But whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.
A Tree Known by Its Fruit
33“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit.
To all does that think that I am crazy for obeying the words of the Holy Spirit, “be very careful”, you may be blasphemy the work of the Holy Spirit in me, because He told me to glorify the wonderful name of Jesus on my forehead.
Let us look to Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith. To Jesus be all the praises, in our spirits and bodies, now and forever Amen.
