MODERN MARVELS FACTS: SALT 12/01/08
INTERESTING: Salt preserves food by dissolving
and absorbing the moisture that the bacteria needs to
multiply and this keeps the food from spoiling. Salt
has 14,000 uses. Salt is used to kill poison ivy. It
is an important ingredient in glass, rubber, paint, bug
The name salary came from the Roman soldiers where they
got paid partially in salt. In ancient Greece,
merchants would trade slaves for salt, giving rise to
the expression that a man was not worth his salt. At
one time salt was traded ounce for ounce with gold
because it was so hard to get.
COMMENTS: We are told by the Lord to be the salt
of the earth, which means to preserve her. If we do
not, we are vulnerable to being plundered by the enemy.
We are supposed to walk upon serpents and put our foot
upon the enemy. The warning is that the enemy will walk
upon us instead, if we are not the salt of the earth.
Luke 10:19-20 NKJV
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on
serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the
enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Rom 16:20 NKJV
And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet
"You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses
its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good
for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot
by men. 14 "You are the light of the world. A city
that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they
light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a
lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the
house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they
may see your good works and glorify your Father in
Luke 14:34-35 NKJV
"Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its flavor,
how shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the
land nor for the dunghill, but men throw it out. He who
has ears to hear, let him hear!"
It is highly
quickened to me that one ounce of salt was at one time
in our history equal to one ounce of gold.
This is a parable of kingdom currency where our
sacrifices of a holy life bear weighty value for those
who are tried and tested in the fire.
Mark 9:49-50 NKJV
"For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every
sacrifice will be seasoned with salt . 50 Salt is good,
but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season
it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one
Col 4:5-6 NKJV
Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside,
redeeming the time. 6 Let your speech always be with
grace, seasoned with salt , that you may know how you
ought to answer each one.
Rev 3:18-20 NKJV
I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the
fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you
may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not
be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that
you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and
chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
PAST WORDS ON SALT
QUICKENED WORDS ON SALT
12/14/95: I had been thinking about salt preserving meat
for the Indians & pioneers. The salt kills the bacteria.
Then I remembered that too much salt in bread dough
kills the yeast and will not let the bread rise. I also
thought that we are preserving the earth from the wrath
of God. It all connected with me and I realized that
perhaps the reason He wants us salty is because our
lives preserve one another and "kills" the enemy
influence around us.
DREAM 12/14/95: I was
typesetting a coupon. Spread across the top was a banner
of popcorn salt shakers pouring out over the coupon.
There were women dressed in battle fatigues doing
different things among the salt shakers.
PARABLE OF SALT
The Dr has me on some
medication designed to take out the excess salt stored
in my cells. This is preventative therapy against
headaches. The only way I can balance the medication is
to drink plenty of water. I can clearly see the parable.
If the Lord wants us salty, but we are storing that
preservative (and not releasing it for others) then we
develop an overbalance and it builds up in our own self
and eventually causes pain.
However, in order to
start releasing that salt, there needs to be a daily
balance of hearing from the Lord (water) so that the
person giving the salt does not become dehydrated &
WORD TO PONDER 12/14/95
I want you salty so that
your prayers are an intercession of preservation for the
guilty ones and those who are walking in unrighteous
“Ye are the salt of the
earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith
shall it be salted?” (Matt 5:13 KJV)
RHEMA 4/2/97: ANNA MINING
HEARD: Servant hood.
Prophet. King. Ruler. Destiny. Overwhelmed assignment.
Assurance. I told you so.
HEARD: God wanted me to
understand how we self share our neighbor’s fruit.
PIX: I saw Anna was
mining salt. They were like huge chunks of it, and they
sparkling like treasures.
HEARD: A favor Word.
Job 37:1-5 NKJV
At this also my heart
trembles, And leaps from its place. Hear attentively the
thunder of His voice , And the rumbling that comes from
His mouth. He sends it forth under the whole heaven, His
lightning to the ends of the earth. After it a voice
roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, And He does
not restrain them when His voice is heard. God thunders
marvelously with His voice; He does great things which
we cannot comprehend.
RHEMA 1/20/98: PRAY FOR
THE WHITE HOUSE
HEARD: Salt. It’s the
right time. Umbrella
Warfare. Victory. We have
an appointment. White house. Relationship.
[Lord can You give me a
Word via the Ponder Book?]
IMPRESSION: I had the
impression to turn to the second page of the Table of
Contents. I closed my eyes and put my finger on the
page, scrolling down the left side. Still with my eyes
closed, I stopped my finger scroll.
I opened my eyes and my
finger was on the following Word PRAY! This was very
special because I hadn’t read the Ponder book volume 1
since it was printed and I had no idea what was on the
Table of Contents on this page.
If you truly understood
what takes place the moment you pray, then you would
truly never cease. When you pray it sends the angels to
go forth and make a way. Many operations take place
behind the scenes to dove tail My Faithfulness in
someone’s life. One of the basic foundations of such is
prayer. Angels are prepared and ready. They listen,
awaiting to be dispatched with assignment. Prayer looses
them to fight through obstacles, frees them to go forth,
prepares events, and sets things in motion.
Did you know that when
you pray for others, it has eternal value? Some day when
you come here, you will stand before all those you have
prayed for and see how those simple requests made a
difference in their lives. You will see entire destinies
altered because you stopped to pray one simple prayer.
Can you imagine it? If you only understood the power I
have given into your hands to make a difference.
"Praying always with all
prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching
thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all
saints." (Ephesians 6:18)

John 5:1-6 NKJV
After this there was a
feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2 Now
there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, which is
called in Hebrew, Bethesda , having five porches. 3 In
these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame,
paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. 4 For an
angel went down at a certain time into the pool and
stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first,
after the stirring of the water, was made well of
whatever disease he had. 5 Now a certain man was there
who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus
saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been
in that condition a long time, He said to him, "Do you
want to be made well?"
HEARD: Daughter. Made it
through the night. Plunk.
PIX: I saw the plumping
up a raisin that had dropped (plunked) into water..
Acts 3:19-21 NKJV
Repent therefore and be
converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that
times of refreshing may come from the presence of the
Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was
preached to you before, 21 whom heaven must receive
until the times of restoration of all things, which God
has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since
the world began.
[The Greek word
restoration means to be reconstituted by adding water.
This will probably come when God pours His Spirit upon

HEARD: To the nations.
Mercy. It triumphs over generations.
Rev 22:5 NKJV
In the middle of its
street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of
life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its
fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the
healing of the nations . 3 And there shall be no more
curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in
it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see
His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5
There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor
light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And
they shall reign forever and ever.
PIX: I saw that my hand
was shaking. It had a salt shaker in it and the salt was

people that sometimes we have to learn by experience,
instead of being just told. Because we learn it better
first hand, plus we remember it better.

Softly cooing, deeply
Always beating, ever
Humble in nature, pure

Called in heaven, sent to

Eyes opened, awakened
Penetrated shells cracked
Until their hearts became

Go forth sent ones, doves
of great worth!
Peacemakers sent to walk
Covering cracks with

Interceding Words, bridge

Grieving over all that is
Knowing God, they tremble
At what they see, at what

A dove’s defense is God
Not for their own sake,

Not from striving, but in
Believing God’s Word as
Lifted up in God’s holy

Matt 3:16-17 NKJV
Behold, the heavens were
opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending
like a dove and alighting upon Him. And suddenly a voice
came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in
whom I am well pleased." Matt 12:18-21 NKJV
"Behold! My Servant whom
I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My soul is well
pleased! I will put My Spirit upon Him, And He will
declare justice to the Gentiles. He will not quarrel nor
cry out, Nor will anyone hear His voice in the streets.
A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He
will not quench, Till He sends forth justice to victory;
And in His name Gentiles will trust."
RHEMA 10/26/08 SHIP:
RESCUING THE DELIVERERS
VISION: I saw all these
salt shakers floating around in the bottom of a ship
that had taken in water. The shakers were bobbing and
bumping. The salt shakers were made out of Myrtle wood.
