Have salt in yourselves

Despite being away last week, I have kept up with current world events, in particular the financial crises rocking the world. It is no surprise to me, nor do I find any joy in it. To my mind, it is and continues to be a painful and tragic necessity. Any long term readers know that the Lord has been warning us over a period of years, both here and in many other places, as to what would unfold.

My mind goes back to September 2006, in this post:

It is the twilight of the current age, and we bask in its fading gleams. Much that can be shaken, soon will be.

So do we see the shaking now? I would submit that we do, and there is yet more to come. Just as a Tsunami is not made up of one big wave but a number of waves, so we see the successive and larger waves crashing the shores of our indulgence.

It may be that the latest wave passes, leaving us feeling safe until the next one hits us, seemly out of nowhere. I do not know the timing, that is not my purpose and mission. The purpose is to warn, that we might be prepared. Do not think I am one of the prophets of doom, who delight in pronouncing judgment on everybody else, snug in their secure bunker. No, I have a family, a job, a church fellowship; I’m just an everyman. I do not expect the be aloof or unaffected by the storms.

What I say is the same as over the years – there is only one safe place, only one refuge as we discover our house of cards is not as secure as our pretense would like to make it be. The safe place? Christ alone! Christ alone! Christ alone in the Mercy judgement to come. Only He will be unshaken, only He can offer a place of refuge. The world will fail – He will remain. Therefore friends, purchase the Salt now while you can, that you might “have salt in yourselves, and peace with each other” (Mark 9 v50b).

PS – Perhaps of interest, I came across this today as I was preparing the post.

    You certainly won’t be unaffected by the financial storms and thankfully the Holy Bible has lots to say on the subject of money. Not much has changed since the fat years and the lean years that Jacob went through in Egypt. Jacob was forewarned and managed to safe his family and a lot more besides. We too have some warning and can make some preparation. A few extra tins of food in the larder won’t go wrong and paying down your debts would help. The better off amongst us could buy some precious metals.
    Christ indeed is the safe place and thankfully He left us a wonderful book from which we can learn. Problem is its a tad late for Christians to learn about usury, fiat money, and the scriptures advice on wealth – pity.
    Got gold?

    As the old song reminds us. On Christ the solid Rock I stand, All other ground is sinking sand. I’ve been thinking much about when Peter desired to walk onthe water to come to Jesus. Once out of the boat, he was surrounded by turbulant liquid with no foundation. He was ok as long as he looked to Jesus, but once the waves grabed his attention, he became fearful of his ambience and began to sink. Just as Jesus was as close as the mention of his name for Peter; rescuing him from this sinking, he remains as close as the mention of his name today.

    Have a blessed day in Jesus
