2 Kings 2:19-22
19 Then the men of the city said to Elisha, “Please notice, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my Lord sees; but the water is bad, and the ground barren.” 20 And he said, “Bring me a new bowl, and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. 21 Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.’” 22 So the water remained healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke.
We are truly living in exciting times. Blessings and more blessings!
I want to share with you what I believe the Lord is impressing upon me to be a “now” word. Last Friday the team and I had a truly phenomenal time of prayer and intercession. A major revelation that came forth was from 2 Kings 2:19-22. Let me explain.
Well Positioned but Poisoned There are many within the body of Christ who are positioned correctly but the streams that are meant to nourish them are polluted. Somewhere along the way something went wrong turning the water bad. Basic geography and sociology will show us that no matter how well positioned, excellent
or diligent a city is, it cannot flourish where its water supply is polluted.
When the waters are polluted, it slows everything down, crops die and harvests fail. Lands that are meant to be fruitful stagnate. Another phenomenon that occurs is that people become subjected to such thirst that they may begin to drink anything.
Ultimately, the Lord was revealing from the scripture that there needs to come a supernatural cleansing. This is to help those that are correctly positioned but being poisoned.
New Bowls – Yielded Ones
The prophetic act demonstrated in the scripture shows Prophet Elisha calling for a new bowl containing salt to purify the polluted waters. The Spirit of the Lord revealed there is an invitation for “new bowls” to take on the task of being the one to purify the streams. These new bowls are the yielded ones.
There are a people coming forth who will be used by God to be the solution to situations that seem to be at a dead end. As you step forward and say ‘Lord, here I am, send me’ He will use you in businesses, families, government, and education. Like Elisha, He will send you out to be His revivalist, bringing solutions.
As you purpose to declare the word of the Lord and walk in faith, He will use you to be the salt and light that brings reform to barren lands. You can be one that releases His cleansing power contained on the inside of you.
Salt – Agents of Change
Further to this it is important to note the prophetic properties of salt. Salt eliminates blandness and brings out the full flavour of food. In the same way as we release the power of the Holy Spirit, the Logos word of God suddenly becomes a Rhema word. Salty ones can bring the right word in season needed to a situation.
Salt is also a purifier and cleanser. As a purifying and cleansing agent, God will use you to identify the roots of issues and be the salt that neutralises the contaminations from the source.
A New Wave
We are truly in the midst of a new season. A new wave of God’s glory is coming to the earth and He is using His agents to salt environments and shift things. Let us be expectant because there will be sudden and permanent turn-arounds in circumstances, places and people.
God is raising up a generation that will really move in purity, integrity and power. There are those revivalists being raised up who are agents of change to nations, situations, churches and families.
You can and will transform what seems to be hopeless and bring cleansing so fruitfulness and revival can come.
In His Love,
Reverend Betty King
