The voice spoke to him a second time, 'Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.'
- da voice... (Acts 10:15)
I mean... yeah! Who in their right man would step to Pops and be like, "yo man, why you tryin' ta give me that? Don't you know that joint is impure? heh, you must be tryin' to play a game on me cuz, heh, yooo... YOU of all beings has got to know... that right there is impure. Hey fellas fellas, Pops just tried to play a prank on me! checkit checkit..." ... I mean honestly.... that's STUPID!!! hah hah, alas, we keep doin' it ;-D n e who...
In this passage, my man J's number one apostle Peter was bein' told the above. See, Peter fell into a kind of trance. Homeboy was peepin' a vision son... a vision. And in this vision, he was being offered some four-footed animals, reptiles, and birds. A voice said, "yo P!!! kill and eat son!" And Peter, heh, my man Peter replies, "WHOA WHOA WHOA! No way Lord, I ain't NEVER grubbed on anything impure or unclean!" Then my boy Peter had to get schooled... 3 times! And then POOF, homeboy came out the vision... and there was a knock at the door.
See, Pops was preparin' Peter for this visit. Three dudes showed up and asked Peter to come over to their boss' crib (a Centurion...). All these kats, and the centurion, were not Jewish. And, see, back in the day Jews did not associate with Gentiles (non-jews)... and they certainly did not eat and chill with them in a Gentile's crib! Pops above wanted to eradicate that kind of thinking... hence da vision.
Moral o' da story? Da gift of Pops, da Word o' God, Salvation potnas, is for ANYBODY! We can't let our prejudices, our pre-conceived notions, and our own judgements stand in the way of a soul and Pops. We gotta realize that we are ALL creations of Pops above, ALL created in His image, and ALL loved by homeboy Pops. And that means Pops does not wish to lose anyone, no not even one. A brutha in Pops is a brutha and a sista a sista. Let us "not call anything impure that God has made clean." Aight, on to some other thangs I gotta do! PeACE!
