You Are the Salt of the Earth

Remember who you are…

You are the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13), wherever you see death and barrenness, put yourself in there and pray for life and fruitfulness. Elisha was handed a jar of salt and he threw it in the river and declared, “Thus says the LORD, ‘I have purified these waters; there shall not be from there death or unfruitfulness any longer.’” (2 Kings 2:21) Go to a location that the water is bad and stand there, pray, decree, reverse the curse in that place. You are the salt of the earth and the same will be true for your location as it was for Elisha’s when it says, “So the waters have been purified to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke.” (2 Kings 2:22)

As believers we are really good at talking about out what is wrong, it is time we start doing something about it. People are literally crying on television asking for help. The chief of police here in Kansas City was struggling to speak last night as two officers in our city were shot yesterday, one in critical condition. The chief said holding back sobs “We received a citizen call for our assistance and we came to help, that is what we are trained to do, so we do it everyday. We didn’t instigate this, we didn’t come to pick a fight, we came to help because we were asked to.” He then went on with a plea that said, “the violence in this city must stop”.

Talking about it is not going to change it, as those who have authority in the spirit, we must go deal with the power of the air over our cities. We are the salt of the earth, we have been born to be the ones that release words of life not death. Take your authority, go to a place in your city the Lord will show you, go alone, go with a few friends, but go and decree as Elisha did, “Thus says the LORD, ‘I have purified these waters; there shall not be from there death or unfruitfulness any longer.’” Our cities are depending on us church! You are the salt of the earth.

Listen…Watch

What do you see? The first 6 times that Elijah’s servant went to look for what Elijah saw, he could not see it, but on the 7th time, he saw what Elijah saw. What do you see? We must keep going back to look until we see what God is seeing. Elijah saw a heavy shower coming, but there was not a cloud in the sky (1 Kings 18:41). It took the servant of Elijah going back and forth 7 times before he saw the cloud the size of a man’s hand (1 Kings 18:44). What do you see?

Isaiah 21:6 says, “For thus says the Lord to me, go station the lookout, let him report what he sees.” What did he see? He saw troops of riders, horsemen in pairs. And one said, fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the images of her gods are shattered on the ground.” Can you see the enemy being defeated in our land? Can you hear the sound of God’s victory? Can you see it, can you hear it?

We are living in a time of incredible triumph, a time of great victory, God is doing a work in our day that you would not have believed even if He told you. I can see it. I can hear it. There is going to be dancing in the streets, healing in our land, reformation like we cannot even begin to ask or imagine. I hear the sound of rejoicing, I see the Lord lifted high on the praises of people. Oh it is glorious, tears of joy are going to fall from many peoples eyes, and there is going to be so much life, freedom and peace it will shock you. I see it, I hear it.

Keep going back and looking, keep listening until you hear the God who is life, abundance, love, mercy, grace and truth. His sound is distinguishable, you will know it when you hear it. Don’t settle for another voice, let His voice alone be the voice of victory you hear. Look again, listen again, for I hear it, I see it.
