It is time for a new blogger in bloggersworld. I think that there are over 1 million Christian blogs. But I took a leap of faith and started this blog: Salt of the earth.
Why the name salt of the earth?
You are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men (Mat 5:13)
The name speaks for itself. According to the Word of God, the children (sons) of God should be the salt of the earth. We should walk like Jesus, as sons of God, after the Spirit, and have the Word of God as the final authority in our lives.
But in Today’s world the Word of God is adjusted, to the time we live in, and to the lusts, desires, and the will of man. Many ‘believers’ adjust the Word of God to their lives. So that, it will into their lifestyle. Instead of adjusting their lives to the Word of God, and live the life that God wants us to live.
Many people are afraid to say what the Word says, and to stand upon the Word of God. Because the Word of God goes against the opinion of the world, and what people say. Because of this behaviour, the salt has lost it’s flavour, and signs and wonders don’t or hardly follow the believers anymore.
Salt hurts, but it heals wounds, and it purifies, and that is exactly what the Lord is telling His people: to live purified lives, according to the will and the Word of God. We live in the last days of the end time, and the Lord wants His people to be awake and ready for His return. He commands us to return to the pure Word of God, and remove all the lies of the world (the devil), that have been build up in the minds of the believers, and have entered many churches. He wants His body to be sanctified, pure and holy.
Many doctrines need to be purified with the true Word of God. Because many teachings and doctrines that are preached are carnal, motivational and uplifting, but in reality they are spiritual powerless.
The time has come, that believers should turn back to the true Word of God, and be filled with His Word and the Holy Spirit. So that, they will find out who they are in Christ and walk like sons of God on this earth. Instead of staying spiritual babies, who need to be nurtured by others and keep whining all the time.
Many people suffer from a wrong mindset, depressions, fear, anxiety, chronicle or deadly diseases etc.. Why is there so much misery and chaos? Where does this come from? But more important how can we solve this?
I have only one answer and that is also the foundation of this blog: Jesus Christ; the Word!
‘Be the salt of the earth’
