After finishing prayer, Peter fell into a trance and saw something like a large sheet being let down to earth from heaven, wherein were all manner of four-footed beasts and creeping things of the earth and birds of the heaven. Then he heard a voice of God:

“Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”

Peter was not able to understand it because such animals were prohibited from being eaten.

“Surely not, Lord! I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”

It was true. At the time of Moses, God distinguished clean animals from unclean animals and it’s allowed to eat clean animals only. The people of Israel absolutely followed this food regulation and Peter also did.

However, God commanded Peter to eat unclean animals that had been prohibited from being eaten for about 1,500 years since the regulation was established. Peter was at a loss. The voice of God spoke to Peter once again,

“Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”

From this point, the animals which were impure in the past were no longer unclean (Acts 10:9-16.) We must not consider impure history, which God has made clean, as a mere history of the past. It’s because there are still people who call something impure that God has mad clean.

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them [but to give them their completion]. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished…”  (Matthew 5:17-18)

“The time is coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah…” (Jeremiah 31:31)

The Bible says that God came not to abolish the Law, but to fulfill it. However, the established churches of today say that the Law has been abolished. It’s written in the Bible that God would establish the New Covenant by making the Law perfect. But they insist that keeping the New Covenant is an act to reject God. The history of “calling something impure that God made clean” repeats again.

At first, Peter could not understand the Word of God. But after hearing it, he followed it. For Peter, the God’s Word was more valuable and absolute than the regulation which had been observed for as long as about 1,500 years.

What should the people do who insist that the “New Covenant“, which God made clean and perfect, today? If they truly believe in God, they must follow God’s Words like Peter. At the last judgement, God should say to those who adhere to their own thoughts and tradition:

“Do not call anything impure that God has made clean!”

Note: Nowadays, only the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) keeps the New Covenant according to the teachings of Christ Ahnsahnghong.
