I believe that lots wife was caught up with the activities in the city, physically she came out but psychologically she could not let go

I was pondering this Scripture thinking if some food is too salty it is not fit to eat, only to throw out. She became salt so much that she lost out because she was waste. She specifically disobeyed the command of the angel, this could be a picture of lack of obedience making us completely useless, God 's plans can 't be accomplished by our will, but by His, therefore rendering us useless in the kingdom.

I think that it could mean that we should let go of the past and in order to move on, we must not look back to the past.

I think it is being used to make a illustration of something, but what could it be. Look at Jesus telling his follower upon this Rock I will build my church. He used Rock several times in the bible to make a statement, why a pillar of salt?

What I learnt from this verse is that there are some things in our life that we should let go and wipe out of our memory totally.No matter how expensive they seems or how hard we've laboured for them, If sudenly we loose them,we should still praise God and forget about it all, knowing that we are serving Jehovah Jireh (the God that provide) we should move ahead in God new direction. As christians we should trust in God for greater life ahead of us.Lot wife was filled with the thought of what she was loosing in Sodom, so she became a pilar of salt .apart from the fact that salt is use for preservation.we should also know that a salty land is good for nothing,it's a waste land,A salty land can neither be use for farming nor for building,that is to say that anytime we consentrate on what we've lost in our old life we become unproductive in our present life.

This verse in the bible leaves me to question not so much is the WORD of God is true and fact, but more so of the interpretation of this verse. I say the same that in the scriptures salt has been used as a seasoning and preservation. So, how is it that in this verse that Lot's wife turned into a physcial pillar of salt? Or is that scripture meant in different translations that Lot's wife because of her looking back into the city of Sodom that she was preserved in her memory of what she was missing or loosing? I believe something happened to Lot's wife BUT did she actually turned into a HARD CONCRETE PILLAR STATUE or was she perserved as salt in her mind that she was consumed and turned back to look upon what she was going to miss as she departed the city of Sodom?

 

Brother Chuck's comment on 2011-11-16 05:36:26:

It is confusing to me that the Lord would use salt in the punishment of disobedience of Lot's wife in Gen. 19:26 since salt in the rest if scripture is a type for seasoning and preservation. Does the scripture use salt for another type that I am missing? Or does this verse demonstrate that salt is also a type for judgement?
