THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THE WORLD ORDER has moved in and caused great problems in the nations of God’s Kingdom. The strategies that are involved in the Scriptures, were one of keeping the people strong and powerful and keeping the people Blessed of God, alert and free. In order to do this they had to dwell alone and stay with their own kind of people.
Matthew 15:13…”Ye are the salt of the earth, and if the salt hath lost its savour, where then will be saltiness? It is good for nothing, then but to be cast out and trodden under the foot of men. Ye are the light of the world and a city that sits on a hill cannot be hid. Neither does a man light a candle and put it under a bushel, but he puts the light where it can be seen, and gives light unto the whole house.”
“YE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH, BUT THE SALT HATH LOST ITS SAVOUR.”
There is a direct relationship of this passage to the processes of that time, for the gathering of salt was big business in Palestine at the time of the Christ. In fact, they set out even to cross the Sahara in search of salt, and Sahara means ‘salt sea’, which is actually the great sea of sand where camels were ships carrying salt over the great desert to areas on the other side where salt was quite priceless. So here in Palestine they began to mix the salt with phosphate or Benzinite or with plain earth, and the salt thus wouldn’t be as salty, or lose its savour. Now the Jew’s were here in Palestine at the time of Jesus and they instituted this mixing of earth with the salt until there was not much savour left in it.
