Christ Ahnsahnghong and Mother God Tell the Church of God to Be the Salt and Light of the World

Matthew 5:13-16

13"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.

14"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

What does it mean to be the salt and the light of the world?

Salt purifies and preserves. Salt is what allows the sea to have life. Salt has the ability to contain and shield from decay. Salt also keeps you from slipping in the Winter, and is rather tasty on Rice! Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother also gave salt healing properties.(Romans 1:19)

I was looking up verses about salt in the Bible, and came across this one...

2 Kings 2:19-21

The men of the city said to Elisha, "Look, our lord, this town is well situated, as you can see, but the water is bad and the land is unproductive."

20 "Bring me a new bowl," he said, "and put salt in it." So they brought it to him.

21 Then he went out to the spring and threw the salt into it, saying, "This is what the LORD says: 'I have healed this water. Never again will it cause death or make the land unproductive.' "

Light makes it possible to see, and illuminates the darkness. To have light is to have the knowledge of God (2 Corinthians 4:6). Those that are the light of the world let people know about true Elohim God, our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother God, the New Jerusalem. (John 17:3). The Church of God World Mission Society, although the world has not understood quite yet, is the light of the world! We have the light of Christ Ahnsahnghong and New Jerusalem!
