Scripture: Matthew 5:10-13
If we had checked the context that develops in Matthew 5, we would have understood that even in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus was perfectly balanced because He had already presented the Kingly. Verses 10-13 says, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. We 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.” As believers we are the salt and the light. We are the salt of the earth. We realize, in reading verse 13, that Jesus made something clear. If we retain the salt that comes with the covenant that God made with David, we would rule and reign in our circumstances by asking God to cut-off the enemy!. But if we lose that salt, the enemy walks on us. The issue of salt is, who walks on whom? The enemy walks on the church when the church does not stand up in the Kingly anointing. And that has been going on for 50-75 years! It is time the church stood up in their Kingly authority. That is the only way things are going to change regarding ever-increasing evil. Now is the time to come into that dimension! The Kingly Christ preceded the Priestly Christ, but that dimension of who Jesus is has been taken out of our churches. Revelation 22:19 is a warning to every minister concerning the Judicial Christ. A failure to teach the Judicial Christ has a very strong eternal penalty. Revelation 22:19 says, “…and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”
