The Principle of Change-11

1Samuel 10:6 “And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.”
1Samuel 10:10 “And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them.”
1Samuel 10:13 “And when he had made an end of prophesying he came to the high place.”
Mark 1:15 “And saying The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is at hand repent ye and believe the gospel.”
…From yesterday…
Mark 7:4 “And when they come from the market, except they wash they eat not. And many other things there be which they have received to hold as the washing of cups, and pots, brasen vessels, and of tables.”
Mark 7:5 “Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands?”
I keep saying we still have these folks around, “Pharisees” who will do anything to uphold the tradition of the elders. I have seen and heard people do some outrageous things and the only excuse they had was “that was the way our fathers did it”!
I have seen men refuse to eat certain nutritious food because they were told it was a taboo. Knowledge has increased but yet it has not made them change their minds. They have blocked their minds to the possibility of trying new things.
That was the case of these folks. The only reason they gave Christ for their complaints was the tradition of the elders. Some long dead elders regulating and directing thier affairs from the grave, how sad!
What baffled me however was what Jesus said in verse 13;
Mark 7:13 “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered and many such like things do ye”
