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). And we are commend to glorify Jesus on our body and spirit. We are Christ’s ambassadors, delivering God’s message to the 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 bodie. 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. Rev 22: 4 all of us that are in Christ, when we see Jesus, His wonderful name will be on our foreheads for eternity, on our glorious body. let us not be a shame of glorifying Jesus name 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 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 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 name will be on our foreheads. 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. Let us look to Jesus, the author and the finisher of our faith. To Jesus be all the praises now and forever Amen.
