The Fix Is In – And It’s Salt!

covenant, salt, Scriptures

Like many of you, I see the world and in particular, the USA on a fast track in the wrong direction. Just saw a television commercial last night, (I believe it was during the Pro Bowl), and it had an up close shot of two lesbians kissing in front of their wedding cake. But frankly, that’s what we should expect when the church has ceased to be salty. I do not blame the lost for acting lost. That’s to be expected.

It is incumbent upon the church to be salt and light. Salt preserves. Bacteria and organisms can’t survive in a high salt environment. Because bacteria and organisms tend to be too small to see, think of them as a picture of demonic activity, feasting on and driving forward the fleshly activities of man.

It’s not our mere presence in the midst of a lost world that effects change. As every good Jew knew, salt was covenant talk. Every offering in the Old Testament was to have salt added to it. Think of the various offerings as different contracts and think of the salt as the signature line where both parties sign.

In 2 Chronicles 13:5 we find that God gave “the dominion over Israel to David forever, to him and his sons, by a covenant of salt?” When you hear Jesus talking about salt, He is talking covenant! When the believer no longer walks in His covenant agreement with God, he loses his saltiness.

In James 3 we learn that we have a spring of water coming out of us that either releases blessing or cursing, fresh water or bitter. How is bitter water or bad water made fresh? Well, Elisha threw a bowl of salt into “bad” water and made it fresh. Doesn’t make sense to add salt to water and it becomes drinkable. But adding salt is bringing the covenant to bear.

When we walk in covenant awareness with God, it will affect our thoughts, our words, our very actions. And that my friends will purify the water in our country that quite frankly has begun to stink. What does it mean to walk in covenant with God? That’s a subject for another book, but may I suggest you seek the Lord about that yourself and “study the Scriptures to show yourself approved, a workman that needs not to be ashamed.”

I have much to share on this so be looking for it in upcoming blogs.

Until then, be fruitful and multiply!

  • Thank-you Michael,

    A Word, in and out of season is the salt we get the opportunity to share, as the Holy Spirit prompts us
    to think on, ponder and then release it without fear.

    For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power,
    love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

  • This is a great reminder for me today. I want to be salt in my home that helps my children thirst for God and His Word! Pressing forward!!
