THE
SALT
COVENANT
What you are about to read is going to change your life.
ONLY read this If you are serious about your marriage,

                                                 "The Covenant of Salt."

Have you ever heard of it?  Most people have not.  When you are finished reading here, be sure to share
this with your pastor so that he can use it in his marriage counseling classes.

The Covenant of salt is mentioned twice in the Bible.  A close reference is mentioned once.

Num 18:19
All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the children of Israel offer unto the                          LORD,
have I given thee, and thy sons and thy daughters with thee, by a statute for                        ever: it is a
covenant of salt for ever before the LORD unto thee and to thy seed with  thee.

2 Chr 13:5
Ought ye not to know that the LORD God of Israel gave the kingdom over Israel to David for         ever,
even to him and to his sons by a
covenant of salt?

What is this covenant of salt?  

The covenant of salt is an expression of never ending dedication.  It is the actual qualifications by which a
binding can be broken.

In a marriage ceremony, both the groom and the bride are given a small amount of salt in their hands.  As
they proclaim their dedication to each other, they are instructed to turn into the wind and cast the salt
upward into the wind.  As the salt is blown away and eventually lands, the covenant  is established.  You
see, until you are able to pick up every grain of salt that was cast into the wind, you are not released from
that marriage.  

Whew, I get goose bumps just writing about this.

Can you ever collect all the salt grains again?  Of course not.  Then God can never break the vows
(covenant) you are making with Him

That is just how serious God is, when He institutes a covenant.  He is sitting in the middle of every
marriage that is established in His name.

Lev 2:13
13        And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt
of the covenant of thy God to be lacking from thy meat offering:
with all thine offerings thou shalt offer salt.

Your marriage is a salt covenant between God, a wife, and a husband.


I want to thank my Pastor, Ronald Kimble Senior, of The Life Center Church of Eatonville, FL for revealing
this Word to me.
