What does it take to be seasoned? How would one maintain their flavor in the kingdom? To be seasoned to be salty is to be preserved by our Savior, and forsaking all to gain all through and by following Christ. If we have one foot on the world and one foot in the church we cannot serve two masters, we will love one and the other hate, in turn lose our flavor. If we were once with God and the persecution and trials tore us down to where we lost our focus and sense of path. We have lost our flavor. And if we follow false doctrine knowing and witnessing the truth, but still continue on a path that is not truth, and then we have lost our flavor and our way. In Mathew
5:13 the Lord said,
” Ye are the salt of the earth; but if the salt have lost his saviour, where with shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”
Master Prophet E. Bernard Jordan believes that when we have made the choice to live a life that directly reflects that message we bring to the kingdom, and living what we preach, then it is us who will have the salt given to us by God. For to have flavor is to be effective in all we do in the kingdom. To be effective is to yearn to preserve others in all wisdom, by example of walking in a way that lead others to Christ. To be patient and bearing to those who lack wisdom and salt of their own. To be doers of the word and not just hearers.
