Question 43 - The wine is prohibited or not?

Proverbs 23:31-32 NKJV - "Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it swirls around smoothly; At the last it bites like a serpent, And stings like a viper."
Proverbs 20:1 NKJV - "Wine is a mocker, Strong drink is a brawler, And whoever is led astray by it is not wise."
Deuteronomy 14:26 NKJV - "And you shall spend that money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen or sheep, for wine or similar drink, for whatever your heart desires; you shall eat there before the LORD your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household."
1 Corinthians 11:25 NKJV - "In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."
                It is written in Romans 8:5-10 that these are according to the flesh; they, who are in drunken stage by eating the meat and drinking alcohol excessively, died by quarrelling with each other. So Lord God said that you do not look on to the wine.
                1st Cor. 11:25 is referring to the juice of vine, which was said to drink is different from which was said not to drink. It is not said to drink the leavened juice of vine and that too excessively so that one becomes drunken. It is a duty of the church leaders to distribute the bread and fresh juice of vine from those days to these days.
                Deut. 14:26, is referring to thanks giving meal that includes strong drink with the family before Lord. This verse doesn’t say that to drink excessively so one becomes drunkard. How can a family person drink excessively before the Lord?
There are several verses in Bible not to drink wine excessively Gen. 9:21, Deut. 21:20, 29:19.
