Salt Covenant (Hebrew, b'rith melah), is the most extraordinary of
all HIS Covenants. It
is symbolic of endurance, preservation, and freedom from corruption.
It is a perfect picture of our CREATOR, and it is sprinkled
liberally on HIS Ancient
Path to preserve it and keep it pure.
The Salt Covenant is rich in spiritual symbolism, and so
important that for those who can see, it is visually demonstrated by
the salting of the Temple sacrifices, which was to perpetually
remind the faithful of their solemn Covenant responsibility to YHWH
instructed the Israelites that every sacrifice, including grain
offerings, was to be seasoned with salt as a sign of their Covenant
with HIM (Lev. 2:13, Ezek. 43:23-24).
Even the Holy ingredients used for the incense offering were
to have salt added. "You shall make of these an incense, a
compound according to the art of the perfumer, salted, pure and
holy" (Ex. 30:34-35). Salt,
like the rainbow, is a sign of our CREATOR.
salt was shared to seal
a truce between former enemies or as a symbol of alliance between
close friends. Treaties or friendships were often formalized by the
partaking of a lick of salt to seal the deal or heal the difference
into a Covenant of Salt means
binding oneself to another in utmost loyalty and truthfulness, even
suffering death, rather than breaking the covenant.
For this very reason a Covenant of Salt was never done
lightly or haphazardly – it deserves serious respect.
To the ancient Hebrews, salt represented purification, and
was also symbolic of enduring friendship, honesty, and loyalty
(2Kin.2:19 -21; 2Chr.13:5). Today
some Eastern people still use the phrase: “There is salt
between us.” Having
no salt, meant disloyalty and barrenness.
Salt is rich in Spiritual Metaphors…
Salt is an important ingredient
of life. The
Biblical lore of salt begins in Leviticus 2:13; Numbers 18:19, where it
becomes part of YHWH's Covenant with humanity and was directed to be
part of all the grain offerings in the Temple.

Rite before Moses

able to drive off demons. It is
interesting to note only the dark side forbids its use, you will not find
any salt on the table or in the food served at a black witch’s sabbath or
in any pagan religious offering.
historically symbolized hospitality - and YAHWEH’S
people should be the world’s most hospitable people.
Salt heals - if you settled a dispute with your neighbor then you
would invite the person into your home to share a dish of salt.
Each of you would lick your finger, dip it in the salt and then eat
the salt together. This is the
symbol of friendship that heals the rift.

pure and have salt in us (Mar.9:50), and at birth salt was rubbed on a new
born baby's skin to purify it (Ezk.16:4).

Believers are the salt of the earth (Mat.5:13). They purify the world by not
accepting false philosophies, dishonest ways of doing business, selfish

pleasure of a meal (Job 6:6). By analogy
the Believers should add - just a dash - of spiritual interest, hope, and
excitement to other people’s lives.
Too salty ruins the taste of the meal, and the spiritual message.

should produce spiritual thirst in those around them.

you will die a slow agonizing death - you figure out the analogy!
Sodium regulates the passage of nutrients into the cells.
Without it, nutrients cannot enter your cells and you will have

During Europe’s Dark Ages, due to glacial melting, the ocean levels
rose flooding all the salt flats of Europe causing a salt famine (ref. Economic

The daily average ration fell to less then two grams per person and
caused many to die from dehydration and madness.
To get salt, some who were stronger would assault the weak, cut their
jugular vein and drink the victim’s salty blood, giving birth to the myth
of the vampire.

By analogy, the Believers should not be influenced by the deceitful

Salt and Health

potential harmful consequences of salt restriction

It is amazing how much we have forgotten
about our salt filled heritage and its powers. We have also
forgotten much about the quality of salt. Today’s debased white
table salt deserves all of its bad reputation and all the misdeeds as
charged. Simply put: It’s crap, and you don’t want to put it on
the Holy table. The salt that honors YAHWEH’S table is pure,
unrefined, living sea-salt. Real sea-salt is the most complex
mineral element on the planet. It supplies all 92 vital trace
minerals needed by the body, such as sulfur, magnesium, calcium and
potassium, all in their natural organic, easy to assimilate state.
By contrast, refined salt contains only two elements. Salt
refinement means everything good is taken out of it and sold off to other
industries, while the supermarket consumer gets the debased junk that is
Somewhere along the way, modern society was sold on the idea that
progress means “refined and purified.” Clean, clear, bright
white is good. Off-white gray, or cloudy is bad. The marketing
survey for salt goes something like this: Which looks better: The
processed clean bright white salt or natural off-white gray? Which
pours better: The dried and refined salt, or moist and natural salt?
But they never asked: To make everything clean, clear, and bright white,
we have to remove all the healthy living organic nutrients, and we’ll
quietly sell them off to the chemical companies. Then to get these
nutrients back, the chemical companies well sell you vitamin and mineral
supplements - is that OK? This modern refinement process in our salt
example applies to our oils, our baking flours, our fruit juices, etc. -
Satan and his minions have been busy!
In the Temple
sacrificial system YHWH demanded the best of what this natural world
has to offer. A point often missed by most Bible teachers, even
those who pride themselves on their so-called “multi-level
interpretation of Scriptures,” is that the Temple offerings were not to
appease an angry GOD. YHWH cares about humanity, and HE is using the
world stage of the Temple to teach humanity. YHWH demands the best,
and the offerings
are also an example of the best foods on Earth. The thinking is, if
they are good enough for the YHWH, then they should also be good for
humanity. Many times in my book and this website I mention the
health of the mind, body, and spirit, as it relates to Bible and Holy Day
teachings, here is another hint, if you want to know the road to good
health then research the offerings and foods mentioned in the Bible.
Salt, because it was required with every offering, is one of the foods
that figured prominently in the Temple, and it figures prominently in our
- “Sodium is essential
to brain function.
- A lack of it will
gradually turn you into an idiot,
- or a ‘mental
dense,’ if you need a softer phrase.” –
We are all as different
as snowflakes, but we all have water and salt in common. The
simple fact is that without the proper salt your cells cannot re-generate,
they de-generate. The body runs on salt, without salt we run out of
electrolytes, and without electrolytes our batteries die out.
Without salt, or the wrong salt, the mind goes numb, and illnesses soon
takes over the body, and the children suffer even more. Satan knows
this, and only the dark side is behind this mindless push to a sodium free
diet. If the people continue down this path, at the very least, it
will be one of the main causes of a national health catastrophe, and it
will usher in a new dark age in world.
Our CREATOR made the
human body from the organic elements of the earth (Gen.2:7), and the
best way to maintain your health is to replenish it with natural organic
elements, not synthetic substitutes. Organic elements in their natural
state are easily assimilated by the body's digestive system. I
believe that taking sea salt is like taking a vitamin pill - it is the
way our CREATOR designed it. Depending on your size, how active you
are, and how warm the climate is take 1/8-1/4 teaspoon, 1x or 2x a
day (morning and evening) with a glass of water. Also, add it to
your food, it will enrich the taste of your meal. When cooking
with sea salt, add it towards the end of the cooking time so the active ingredients
of the salt are not cooked away. Click for: Complete
Analysis of Sea Salt
RADIATION FALLOUT PROTECTION: In my Tribulation prophecy web pages,
I mention one should turn to our CREATOR’S organic technology for help
in surviving the terrible things to come, natural sea salt is a good
example. Sometime during the Tribulation years, and/or maybe during
the beginning of sorrows before the Tribulation, a nuclear bomb will be
set off. To counter the aftereffects of nuclear fallout today’s
modern world is stocking up on potassium iodide tablets.
Unfortunately man-made synthetics might not save you. The problem is
that a massive dose of artificial iodine does not stay in the system very
long, and is soon urinated out of the body. The best radiation
defense is a strong immune system getting organically bound iodine from
sea products such as sea salt, kelp, seaweed, etc.. These products
are high in natural iodine, and in their unprocessed natural state, their
trace minerals are easily assimilated and distributed throughout the body.
When nuclear trouble is on the horizon just double up on the normal daily
dosage for a few days till the danger passes.
REMEMBER: In spiritual warfare, when you are facing great
tribulation, a lick of real sea salt, invoking the Sacred Names, and
praying the Psalms of protection, will help in keeping the dark demons off
