You are the salt of the earth

2 Chronicles 13:5
Ought ye not to know that the LORD God of Israel gave the kingdom over Israel to David for ever, even to him and to his sons by a covenant of salt?

Science has proven that salt can survive in water (it gets dissolved in it and doesn’t lose its taste but rather changes the taste of water and once you heat it in fire you regain your salt back. Therefore it endures/ stays constant regardless of the circumstances it’s put under.

The covenant God has made with us is a covenant of salt, it cannot be destroyed (it’s everlasting) it is used to preserve. Salt also enhances the taste of everything it’s added to.

Matthew 5:13
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Jesus has called us the salt of the earth that means we are indestructible regardless of the circumstances we go through (water or fire), we have been called to preserve lives, to prevent them from destruction and hell. We have been called to add taste to the already tasteless world.

However He also warns us not to lose our savour. How can salt lose its taste one might ask? Not every salt harvested is good for consumption, it has to go through refining just like we too go through a pruning process with God (John 15:2) therefore if salt has impurities in it, it cannot be consumed and has no taste.

This is the same with the believer, as long as we allow impurities to come into our lives (false doctrines, religion, compromising with the world), then we gradually lose our taste henceforth good for nothing.

Leviticus 2:13
And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.

The Bible says that in and with your meat offering, we shall also offer salt.
(Romans 12:1
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.),

This then causes me to pause a question; what offering are you giving unto God, is it that without salt? Is it one that has lost its savor or is it the perfect sacrifice?

2 Kings 2:19-22
And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.
²⁰And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.
²¹And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.
²²So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.

Verse 19 of 2 Kings chapter 2 says that the men said that the water was naught (meaning it was bad or evil (naturally or morally).

The Bible says that out of our bellies shall flow rivers of living water..another version calls it streams of life-giving water.

Therefore depending on whichever well is pouring into your river, you are capable of giving off bad or evil streams of water that cause death, this can be listening to false doctrine, religion etc.

However because of the covenant of salt that we were given, salt was used to heal the waters even to this day. It’s impact is for ever only if you believe.

John 7:38
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Prophetic Utterance:

I am the salt of the earth
My positive influence is for ever
Out of my belly flow streams of life giving water.
