Topic: SALT MY DESTINY

Bible Reading: 2 Kings 2:19-22

📖19….”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.
📖20….And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.
📖21….And 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.
📖22….So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.”

Message:

🔥Many destinies like Jericho, are cursed from their foundations, as such they can only manifest bitterness and unpleasantness. In Joshua 6:26, Jericho was cursed by Joshua. Even though Hiel the Bethelite rebuilt it at the death of his firstborn and set up the gates at the death of his last son in 1 Kgs 16:34, yet the curse wasn’t done away with. Hence, when Elisha became God’s national prophet for his people, the people of Jericho complained to him, and he salted the spring of the water of Jericho, to heal it.

🔥🔥Jericho had been a City of sorrow and pains because the land was barren and the water bitter until Elisha’s salt came into it. Salt is a healing agent which produces warmth in food items. It acts as a preservative substance when used to rub fresh meat and fishes. Because of its taste, it makes unsavoury food palatable. Because of its power to penetrate into food, salt spiritually bonds people in good relationships. No wonder God instructed the Jews in Leviticus 2:13 to add salt to their offerings as a symbol of friendship, as it was done in ancient times.

🔥🔥🔥The importance of salt was reiterated by Jesus when he called the Church the salt of the world in Matthew 5:13. Christianity brought God back to the world after he abandoned it between Malachi and Matthew. So, even in the unchristened nations of the world, Christianity as God’s salt in the world, sustains them. The mercies and grace of God in the world today, is the Church. Even the human body contains salt. Taste your sweat if in doubt. The importance of salt is further seen in 2 Chro 13:5, where the kingdom over Israel was given to David with a covenant of salt. An unbreakable covenant. Beloveth, you are salt of the earth, because you cannot be abandoned by God.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏O Lord, deliver me by your spiritual salt, from every curse reducing the sweetness in my family, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏Heavenly Father, protect me from every deed of my parents which is attracting misfortune to me, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, release the salt of peace, favour and sweetness, into my destiny, in Jesus’ name.
