(51) Peter's Vision

Peter went up to the flat roof to pray.
It was about noon and he was hungry.
Then he saw a vision.
He saw the sky open, and something like a large sheet
was let down by its four corners.
In the sheet were all sorts of animals.
Then a voice said to him, "Get up, Peter, eat them."
"No! God, I have never in my life eaten anything forbidden
by our Jewish laws."
The voice spoke again,
"If God says something is acceptable, don't say it isn't"
Peter was perplexed.
Just then the men sent by Cornelius, a Roman Officer,
found the house and stood outside at the gate.
As Peter was puzzling over the vision,
the Holy Spirit said to him,
"Go down and go with them without hesitation,
All is well for I have sent them."
