The Salt Covenant

THE SALT COVENANT

The Salt Covenant is rich in spiritual symbolism, and so important that for those who can see, it is visually demonstrated by the salting of the Temple sacrifices, which was to perpetually remind the faithful of their solemn Covenant responsibility to the LORD (Num.18:19). The LORD instructed the Israelites that every sacrifice, including grain offerings, was to be seasoned with salt as a sign of their Covenant with HIM (Lev. 2:13, Ezek. 43:23-24). Even the Holy ingredients used for the incense offering were to have salt added. “You shall make of these an incense, a compound according to the art of the perfumer, salted, pure and holy” (Ex. 30:34-35).

Salt represents purity, fidelity, and loyalty. Salt in the covenant meant that God’s people were to be pure and incorruptible in there covenant relationship with the LORD.

    I sent a prayer request Tuesday. Did you receive it and how will I get a response to the prayer request?

    Salt has been used to preserve meat, and it works by extraction of the water from the meat thus denying the bacteria from an important material for their growth, the saline environment is also not conducive for bacterial growth. Two significant concepts, extraction and environment. Our presence ought to extract things that cause death and destruction and create an environment where sin, confusion and destruction cannot occur. You have to be the salt in your home, salt in your workplace, salt in your community. We must influence what happens in our environment, if we are salt. If you cannot influence what is happening around you, then you are useles and should be thrown way, you have lost your flavor.

    I am so glad you talked about chia seeds. I hadn’t heard of these till I was going by means of a rough time final spring right after determining to go off a strong anti-depressant cold turkey. I’d by no means try this once more but was left with abdomen issues
    and anxiousness.

    Have a look at my page; Organic Chia Seed

    I love what John Peters said:
    “Salt has been used to preserve meat, and it works by extraction of the water from the meat thus denying the bacteria from an important material for their growth, the saline environment is also not conducive for bacterial growth”
    I feel our covenant responsibility is the tithe and offerings as well as many other things. I remind the Lord when sickness tries to come upon me that I am a tither and that He promised to rebuke the destroyer for my sake. So the “tithe” preseves us and as stated above is the salt that DENYING THE BACTERIA” and “PRESERVE MEAT”!!! The salt in our bodies that denies the bacteria from further propering.
