"Kill commanrj was given to Noah efter thc flood to end eat-" There was a surplus supplv prepared,for all vegetation was destroyed.It was nccessaryfor them to eat. but 'asrhe clean beesisenteredtha Ark by sevens,while the un7 cl e an wer e t ak en b 1 ' tw o s .C c n e s i s :7 ,i t w a s n ol i ntended tor Noah to eat the unclean ones. Therefore the very nature of fhe animal was such that it was not fit for food, lon" b.6ore the days of Moses. when definite laws were rnadc regarding food. ln rhe I lrh ihapter of Leviticus it is very clcarly given what kind of flesh was intended for food. and the kind that There are. hOwever.Certain texts in the Nclv was unClean. Testament that people wrongly interpret, like the one explained in the June irsue. which I shall not' reFeat. ' Another text which is taken for an excuse to eat the swine is found in Acts l0th chapter where the apostle Peter was shown in vision a sheetlet down from lreavenwith all manncr of four footed enimals. and a r"oicesaid to him, "Arise Pcter, kiil and cat. What Cod hath cleansedcall thOu not cornmon." It is claimed that the swine and all kinds of Uncleancreatureswere clcanscd. and can theretore be -i'iris as good food without an,v danger to oncs eaten is man's intcrpretationof the intentron of the ucairh. vision. but in verse 28 we havc the Spirit's inlcrpretation. "'God hath SHOWN ME, that I should call Peter says, common or unclean."So ciear NO MAN, (not the aninrals) reader, let us believe what Peter says about it. and not lonre man's statement contrary to the scripttrrea Peterwas here undergoing test as to whethcr he should go in among Centiles or tlot. us vou wili gather from reatling the chapter. This was the way the Father choseto show him that all men were thc sameand the middlc wall of partition between the Jew and the Centile had been broten down. Those led bi' the Spirit, aftcr knowing r*'hat it says in verse 28, will no longcr misrepresentthis lesson, but will teach it as Petcr tells us to teach itAnother iact worth noting here is that this was eight *'l have never ealen and Peter says, years after Pentecost, anything common or unclean," Verse 14. Surely' if thc swine had been cleansd by the shed blood on CelvarY, 8s many claim. Pcter would have known it, and would not have been abstaining from eating the unclean meats for these eight years. I am sure Peter's examplc is e goal one to follow. I Timothy Another text frequently used is found in '.hat in the 4:3-5. It says that Spirit speaketh expressly "com' lattcr timcs some will forbid people to marry. and hath crcated mand thdm to abstain from meats which Cod to be /cceivcdwith thanksgiving.Every crcature of Gd is good rnd nothing to be refused. if it be recr'ivedwith For it is sanctified set apart), by the Wc'rd thankssivine. {or looted. ;;et he cheweth not the cud; hc is unclean to you." ,tf CtvJ and pral'er. -Leviticus lll7. llacy 5*eestilr i:elierre :i:at :he'r 5an.!.ily swi.nes {esh

through prayer end make it clean. But notice just what it says here. It sa.vsit is sanctified (set apart) by the WORD of GOD. Now what meats are set apart by the Word of God. and what meats were created to be received?In this text.we hlrve tu'o positivc statements,that it is the meat CREATED l"O BE RECEIVED. and the other is the meats SANCTIFIED BY THE WORD OF COD" The worcl "Sanctify". rneansto set apart for holy use. The unclean animals wcrc never created to be received for food, neither are they sanciified(set apart) by the Word, for food. In th* previous scripture given in Leviticus I lth ctrapter, it is very easyto learn thc meats that were set 3part by the Word of God for food. and those created to be received. Therefore. let us not wrongly interpret thesc scriptures and bring sicknessand untimely death upon us.
