God had a detailed process.

Leviticus 3:17 – The Israelites were forbidden from eating blood, because the life was in the blood (Leviticus 17:11).

Mark 1:30 – A major religion teaches that their clergy must be unmarried, however we see that Simon (later Peter) had a mother-in-law. Most people with a mother-in-law, also have a wife.

Mark 1:34 – Again Jesus orders the devils to not speak (as we discussed yesterday).

Mark 2:4 – As Vic Eliason used to say – the press caused problems even back then.

Patch the Pirate has a song, “The Quartet that Raised the Roof” (Amazon MP3).

Psalm 35:17 – Are you hurting? Pray this prayer with the Psalmist!

Proverbs 9:13 – Solomon warns against the foolish woman’s house of ‘hospitality’ – by v.18 the guests are now in the depths of hell.
