There is a king, King Él Elyon.

One day, he sent his son, down to the village where his people lived. This son was also king, equal with his father.

He was known as Yeshua HaMashiach. The Son-King. Jesus the Christ.
The Son-King came down and lived with his people. He loved them and wished to give his life for them.
One day, he climbed a mountain and began to speak to his people.

"You are the SALT of the earth," he said.
Be salt.
For the world, you will be the antiseptic that kills the bacteria of selfishness, lust, anger, pride, abuse, ego, wickedness, self-righteousness, and perversions.

Be salt.
For the world, you will be the ones who heal the earth, bring peace, joy, laughter,
encouragement, support, etc. wherever you go.

Be salt.
For the world, you will be the Preservative. Who through the sharing of the Gospel of Christ Jesus, will bring long life to the inhabitants of the earth.
Be salt.
For the world, you will be the flavour; the ones who give taste to the lives of many souls who are lacklustre and without direction. Through you, they will find peace, love God, themselves and their neighbours, be wise and walk in truth.

This is what the Son-King said.
They heeded his words. They went into the world and for a while, spread their saltiness everywhere they went and lives were changed.
But they soon tired of spreading.

"Surely," they thought. "Do we need to go about spreading salt? Can we not salt the earth from where we are?"
So they built beautiful #saltshakers and called these buildings, Churches. They went further and named their salt containers.

Christ Glorious Chapel.

Jesus of Nazareth Ministries.

Kingdom of Jéhovah Sharp Sharp International Ministries, a.k.a The Ultimate Solution Centre.
They appointed Chief Salters and named them bishops, reverends, pastors, elders, prophets, apostles and the like. These people regulated who could be salted and how much salt would be given out.

Every now and then, through evangelism programs and 3-day outreaches, they went out
into surrounding streets and communities and sprinkled a little salt. Some would sprinkle and then build a #saltshaker to mark their territory. These were called branches and parishes.

The salt began to identify themselves by their containers, rather than as brothers in Yeshua.
I am a Dunamite!

I am an Ambassador!

Catholic Forever!

Methodist till I die!

Many forgot the Son-King's words and became preoccupied with making money, driving big cars and building magnificent saltshakers for themselves. In doing so, they slowly lost their saltiness.
"But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot," said Yeshua, the Son-King.

Having lost their taste and power, they sought other ways to stay relevant.
For still, they would not leave their containers.

"We need to bring the world to us," they said. "How can we attract them?"

"It's a youth program. Play Pana by Techno. That will attract the young people. Then we can ministain - minister to, as well as entertain them."
So they invited actors, singers of lewd songs and comedians to 'ministain' during church services

They organized several programs and gave them pretty tags and banners.

"Night of a Thousand Miracles and Wonders."

"My Father, My Father, Who Stole My Wedding Gown?"
"Lord, Lord, These Witches Must Die."

"Night of Deliverance: Needed in the City, But Held Back in The Village."

They concocted new gospel.

"Buy this anointing oil, anointed by the Man ah Gad!"

"Sow a seed to unlock God's blessings."

"Tithe or it shall be tight for you."
"Don't question your pastor, the Chief Salter, else his/her anointing will not cover you."

'Judge not, for you shall be judged.'
This meant, do not point others to their errors, nor tell them the truth.

If the Chief Salter sinned, the message became "Touch not my anointed."
"Yeshua loves you just as you are. There's no need to change."

They abandoned Yeshua's words and turned to prophecies, signs and divinations. Souls hungered for truth but the pulpit shared sermons on business, subservience to leaders, money and self.
"Yeshua didn't really mean you should love your enemies. Your enemies must die by fire."

"It doesn't matter if you cheat. God helps those who help themselves. The end justifies the means."

A few salt grains still shared and daily lived by the Son-King's words. But they were
scorned by the wolves in sheep clothing. Also, people's ears were itchy. They did not wish to hear the truth, for truth had become unfashionable, old school, and did not get with the times.

They desired change but wished to remain the same.
"And in the last days, people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoff at God, disobey their parents, and be ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred.

They will be unloving and unforgiving; slander others and have no self-control.
They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.

They will act religious, but will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!"

---2nd Timothy 3:5
