Too Much Salt

*** "They were ashamed of a people that could not profit them..." Isaiah 30:5a
***** PART I
 ***Indictment. There is an indictment against the body of Christ. (Be sure it is not against the Christ...it is against the members: the Body.) America is especially warned.
*** Too much salt. Too much 'gospel'. Too much 'teaching'. Too much 'preaching'. Too many 'prophecies'. The salt has lost it's savor.
*** Think about it: too much salt on food. No good. Good for nothing...except to throw out. So it is with My church, My Body. My Body has too much salt; it is too salty...it is saturated with brine. It is essentially useless.
 *** Am I being too 'hard'? Am I wrong, My people? Look at America: look at the luxury...look at the churches. Too much salt accumulated in one place.
 *** What is salt for? Is it not to 'season' the food, and to 'preserve' the food? How is My Salt being used? Is it being hoarded up? Is it piled high in certain areas, while others are left desolate with no salt...no 'flavor'? This is not My plan.
  *** So where is all the salt being deposited? Where are the 'salt piles'?
*** Look at your own church(es), America. Look at your lifestyles. Look at your homes, your food, your entertainment...is it not *lavish*?
*** James 5:1-3 "Go (to) now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered: and the rust of them shall be a witness against you and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days." (Scripture reference)
******* PART II
 *** Now, where is some salt needed? Where is there no flavor, no savor, no preservation? *** This (also) is *witnessed* in your churches, America. It is just harder to see. (Mainly because it is often ignored.)
*** There are empty tables among you. There are crying, lonely people: both adults and children. There are desperately poor among you and near you. There are sick, weak, scared, tired people all around you. Do you not care? Do you not see?
*** Maybe the excessive 'saltiness' has hidden (covered up and covered over) the truly needy.
*** Are you ashamed of a person - of people - who cannot 'profit' you? Do you see them... and walk to the other side of the road? Do you purposely avoid them in your gatherings? Are they left out of your functions? They need salt,too."
