More Salt Please


I PRAY YOU FEEL MY HEART.


WE ARE TRULY IN THE LAST DAYS AND AS I SEE ALL THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING IN THE WORLD AROUND US MY HEART JUST BREAKS. YET IT BREAKS EVEN MORE LOOKING AT THE BRIDE OF CHRIST HIS CHURCH AROUND ME. FAMILY OF GOD WHERE ARE WE? FAMILY OF GOD WHO ARE WE? I UNDERSTAND ALL THAT 2TIMOTHY 3 SAYS (I ENCOURAGE YOU TO READ) WHEN HE WRITES ABOUT THE ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIORS IN LAST DAYS AND I TOTALLY GET IT, BUT WHERE IS THE REMNANT? WHERE ARE THE ONES THAT WILL SAY I WILL NOT COMPROMISE, YES I AM IN THE WORLD BUT NOT OF THE WORLD. WHERE ARE THE ONES THAT WILL SAY…I WILL NOT BE “A LAST DAYS STATISTIC”?


Matthew 5:13 (AMP)

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its taste (purpose), how can it be made salty? It is no longer good for anything, but to be thrown out and walked on by people [when the walkways are wet and slippery].


THIS SCRIPTURE IN MATTHEW 5 HAS BEEN RESONATING IN ME. GOD’S WORD SAYS THAT WE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH AND IF WE LOSE OUR TASTE AS IN OUR PURPOSE, HOW IS THE EARTH GOING TO GET SALTY? YOU MAY HAVE EVERYTHING GOING FOR YOU, A SUCCESSFUL FAMILY OR BUSINESS OR MINISTRY…BUT WHAT IS ALL OF THAT IF YOU ARE NOT SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS WITH ANYONE? WHAT IS ALL OF THAT…IF WE ARE NOT FEEDING OR CLOTHING ANYONE? WHAT IS IT IF NO ONE IS COMING TO KNOW HIS SAVING GRACE THROUGH US?

THOSE WHO ARE LOVERS OF THEMSELVES AND WHO ARE FALLING AWAY ARE CLEARLY NOT SALTY ENOUGH BECAUSE SALT PRESERVES…IT KEEPS. WHEN WE JUST WORRY ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON WITH US AS LONG AS WE AND OUR HOUSEHOLD AND OUR PEEPS ARE GOOD….THAT IS LIVING LIFE BLAND WITH NO SALT. AND I’VE NEVER SEEN SO MUCH HATE, JEALOUSY, GOSSIP, SLANDER, ENVY, PRIDE, UNTHANKFULNESS, COMPETITION, ETC. IN THE FAMILY OF GOD I’M SORRY. THIS IS CLEARLY AGAIN LIVING A NO SALT LIFE. FAMILY OF GOD, WE CANNOT AFFORD TO LIVE LIFE BLAND WITH NO KIND OF FLAVOR AND NO PURPOSE. GOD’S PURPOSE GOES BEYOND OUR INNER CIRCLES AND OUR FAMILIES. THESE INNER CIRCLES AND FAMILIES CAN ACTUALLY HELP US FULFILL GOD’S PURPOSE IN OUR LIVES.


THE BENEFITS OF SALT IN THE NATURAL ARE QUITE REMARKABLE. SALT IS A GREAT PRESERVATIVE AND WILL CAUSE PERISHABLE FOOD TO LAST FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. SALT IS EVEN BENEFICIAL TO WOUNDS. SALT AND WATER WAS AN OLD REMEDY USED TO HEAL INFECTIOUS WOUNDS AND IT IS STILL USED TODAY TO HEAL INFECTIONS, HYDRATE, AND RESTORE THE BODY.


THIS IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF JESUS TEAMING UP WITH US, HE, BEING THE LIVING WATER AND, WE, BEING THE SALT OF THE EARTH TO HEAL WOUNDS AND HELP BRING FREEDOM AND RESTORATION. WHEN OUR SALT HITS SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE TO BECOME SALT THEMSELVES, WHAT AN IMPACT THAT WOULD BE.


IN OUR HOUSEHOLD…WE DO A “LOW TO NO SALT” IN OUR DIET BECAUSE THAT IS A HEALTHIER CHOICE FOR US BUT ONLY IN THE NATURAL. OUR LIVES SHOULD NOT BE LOW TO NO SALT WHEN IT COMES TO THE SPIRITUAL. SOMETIMES WE CAN HAVE A LITTLE TOO MUCH SUGAR GOING ON. EVVVERYTHING IS SWEET THIS SWEET THAT ….FLATTERY THIS AND FLATTERY THAT (FLATTERY IS A SIN BY THE WAY)…DON’T CHALLENGE THIS DON’T CHALLENGE THAT (I HAVE TO TELL THE TRUTH). TOO MUCH SUGAR WILL NOT SUSTAIN OR PRESERVE YOU. ALL SUGAR WILL DO IS HYPE YOU UP AND WHEN THE SUGAR HIGH IS OVER, A CRASHING YOU WILL GO. THEN SOMETIMES WE CAN BE RED HOT CRUSHED PEPPER. WE ARE MEAN…INSENSITIVE OUR WORDS BITE AND ARE SPICY ….AND THEY DO JUST THAT, THEY CRUSH. I AM NOT SHARING ANYTHING THAT GOD HAS NOT DEALT WITH ME ON I ASSURE YOU.


GOD DID NOT CALL US TO BE SUGARY OR RED HOT. HE CALLED US TO BE THE SALT OF THE EARTH. IN THAT SALT THERE IS THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT WHICH IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS, AND TEMPERANCE. ALSO IN THAT SALT WE ARE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE, BE ALERT, AND STAND FIRM IN OUR FAITH. IN THAT SALT WE ARE BOLD AS A LION BECAUSE WE ARE RIGHTEOUS. IN THESE LAST DAYS GOD WANTS TO USE US TO BRING HEALING, HOPE, AND RESTORATION. HE IS STILL VERY MUCH INTERESTED IN BUILDING HIS KINGDOM. IT IS NOT IN HIS WILL THAT ANYONE PERISH. WILL YOU MAKE YOURSELF AVAILABLE? SOME OF THE BEST TIMES TO SHARE HIS LOVE AND HIS SAVING GRACE IS DURING HOLIDAYS AND TIMES WHEN THE WORLD IS LOOKING FOR PEACE AND COMFORT. I ALWAYS PRAY THAT SALVATION WILL COME OUT OF DIFFICULT SITUATIONS. I ALWAYS PRAY THAT SOMEONE WILL TURN THEIR HEART TOWARDS GOD AND NOT FURTHER FROM HIM AND I LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE.

THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN WE LOSE OUR SALT FLAVOR AS IN OUR PURPOSE, WE ARE (LIKE TRASH) THROWN AWAY AND PEOPLE WILL WALK ON US AT VULNERABLE TIMES. WE LOSE OUR FOOTING. WE CAN SAY ALL DAY THE DEVIL IS UNDER OUR FEET. WELL IF WE HAVE NOT SALT, WE WILL BE UNDER SOMEONE ELSE’S FEET.


LET’S BE ENCOURAGED TODAY TO BE THE SALT GOD HAS CALLED US TO BE. LET’S NOT BE BLAND AND DISTASTEFUL. LET’S TEAM UP WITH JESUS THE LIVING WATER AND STOP THE INFECTION (BEGINNING WITH OURSELVES FIRST). THERE IS MORE TO BE ADDED TO HIS CHURCH. GOD IS NOT DONE.

LOOK AROUND…..THE WORLD IS BEGGING FOR AND THE BODY OF CHRIST NEEDS…..MORE SALT PLEASE.


PRAYER: FATHER YOU ARE GREAT AND I HONOR YOU TODAY. FORGIVE ME FOR BEING SO BLAND. FORGIVE ME FOR ALLOWING MY SALT TO LOSE IT’S PURPOSE OR COME CLOSE TO LOSING IT’S PURPOSE. HEAL MY HEART MAKE ME WHOLE. I DESIRE TO SPREAD YOUR LOVE AND YOUR SAVING GRACE. I WILL NOT BE A LAST DAYS STATISTIC. I WILL BE A PART OF THE REMNANT. I WILL BE ONE OF THE ONES HELPING BUILD YOUR KINGDOM MAKING DISCIPLES. THANK YOU FOR TRUSTING ME. I PRAY FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE WHO YOU ARE TO THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW YOU. I PRAY FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO REMIND OTHERS OF YOU WHO HAVE WALKED AWAY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEALING POWER. THANK YOU FOR SHOWING YOURSELF MIGHTY AND STRONG. IN JESUS NAME AMEN.
