Acts 10:9-16 Get Up Peter, Kill and Eat

Acts 10:9-16

9 On the next day, as they were on their way and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray. 10 But he became hungry and was desiring to eat; but while they were making preparations, he fell into a trance; 11 and he *saw the sky opened up, and an object like a great sheet coming down, lowered by four corners to the ground, 12 and there were in it all kinds of four-footed animals and crawling creatures of the earth and birds of the air. 13 A voice came to him, “Get up, Peter, kill and eat!” 14 But Peter said, “By no means, Lord, for I have never eaten anything unholy and unclean.” 15 Again a voice came to him a second time, “What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy.” 16 This happened three times, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky.

There is a debt within the Christian  religion. And  it is about it if the  food in Old Testament, that God declared ‘clean or unclean,’ is still ‘clean or unclean’ in the New Testament. When the New Testament began in Matthew, Jesus and all His disciples ate the clean  animals that the Bible speaks about in Leviticus chapter 7, and so did most of Jewish people. The passage from, Acts 10:9-18, talks about this debate. Peter had become hungry  and I bet his stomach was really grumbling and then he fell into a trance. In a vision, the sky open up and a sheet was lower and its unclean animals were on it. A voice told Peter, “Kill and eat,’ but Peter refused to eat any unclean meat . Again the voice of Peter to ‘Kill and eat,’ but this time God told Peter that God had cleansed, what he considered unholy. In the Bible, being clean  and holy means almost the same thing,  (Leviticus 10:10, Ezekiel 44:23). Now we noticed that Peter never ate the unclean animals, he just continued to walk with a puzzled mind. Why do you think Peter didn’t kill the unclean animals and cook  and eat them, especially if he was hungry? I want you to think  about this question or thought, cause it will have something to do with the men who come to visit Peter, who come visit him. I will continue this tomorrow. God bless you all, Scripture and devotional sent by Samuel Head

Isaiah 66:17“Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go to the gardens, Following one in the center, Who eat swine’s flesh, detestable things and mice, Will come to an end altogether,” declares the Lord.
