Arise Peter Slay and Eat.
“And I heard a voice saying unto me, Arise, Peter; slay and eat.” (Acts 11:7) KJV
God’s instructions to Peter were clear, Arise, Peter, Slay and Eat.
Many Believers today act as though they can only see the word eat. Even though it’s an instruction in a vision that God was communicating to Peter the principles of how God works with his people are enumerated here.
Peter was told to Arise.
You need to arise and be well positioned to poses your possession.
God is providing the lamb for the sacrifice, but you need to arise and walk to the mountain to take hold of it. “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.” (Romans 13: 11) KJV
God told Ruth to position herself strategically before her full restoration could become a reality.
He calls you by name.
God called Peter individually, and when HE sends you on an assignment, He calls you by name.
God speaks to you through your inner man and don’t just copy what others are doing.
He knows what you need.
Ask Him for the blueprint of what He wants you to do.
“Everyday my Father is at work, and I will be too!” John 5:17 (TPT).
What has He assigned you to do today?
When Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, HE told them to lose him from the bundles of clothes they already wrapped him in at the burial.
There is always the work that you have to do.
However, the joy is that the work you have to do is not in your power, wisdom or strength he provides all of them for you.
“And I heard a voice saying to me, Get up, Peter; kill and eat.” ACTS 11:7 (AMPC)

Arise, Peter; slay and eat.
