Topic: SALT MY FOUNDATION

Text: 2 Kings 2:19-22

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

Message:

πŸ”₯As the foundation makes the house yet it is not seen, so foundation makes the man, yet unseen as well. Many people’s foundations are bitter and barren, but they don’t know why, and don’t care how to turn it around. In Joshua 6:26, Joshua cursed Jericho after defeating it. The curse was so powerful that the disobedient Bethelite called Hiel got his two sons killed by the curse in 1 Kgs 16:34.

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯The curse turned the city to sorrow and pain because the land and water which formed the foundation, were made barren and bitter respectively by it. Once the foundation is cursed, there will be no taste in the inhabitant’s life, no warmth, premature death will be prevalent, and nothing good will be attracted to such a place. Even humans without salt, suffer all these as well – Ezek 16:4. This is why David asked in Psalms 11:3 that, if the foundations be destroyed, what shall the righteous do?

πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯But as soon as Elisha salted the spring of the water in 2Kgs 2:21, sweetness came upon the land. No wonder Jesus wants us to be the salt of the earth in Matt 5:13. He wants Christians to carry the ability to constitute healing balm to the earth, as the salt did in Jericho. For King Abijah of Judah to defeat king Jeroboam of Israel, he reminded him in 2 Chro 13:5 that, God had given the kingdom of Israel to David with a covenant of salt. This is a covenant that can’t be broken or forsaken because of its sweetness. May the Lord bless and establish us with a covenant of salt in Jesus’ name. May he salt our foundations to do away with bitterness, poverty, deaths, disappointments in Jesus’ name.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

πŸ™Oh Lord, whatever curse placed upon my birth place that is affecting my foundation, neutralize it with ur divine salt in Jesus’ name.

πŸ™πŸ™My Father, my Father, having made me the salt of the earth, retain my sweetness in me, in Jesus’ name.

πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™Every deed of my fore fathers, responsible for my misfortune, oh God of justice, protect and deliver me from them all, in Jesus’ name.
