SCRIPTURE: “13 But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: 14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:” – Exodus 34:13-14.
Today, we are looking into a deep mystery about altars. This may seem unimportant to many Christians, but I pray that the Lord will damage your ignorance and give you deep understanding of spiritual things, in the name of Jesus.
Altars are real. They exist in the physical and spiritual realms. Altars can be for good or bad purposes. They are built for God to worship and exalt Him. In the same vein, some are erected to worship idols and satanic entities. Altars are places of sacrifice, good and bad ones. At the altars, we see either the traffic of holy angels or demons, as the case may be. Each consignment of holy angels or demons runs errands for specific purposes. It is important therefore to have a deep understanding as growing and mature Christians on this subject.
The instance of Gideon as a chosen deliverer of his people at a time like this is a familiar story. But looking deeply, we see God’s clear instructions to Gideon before he could proceed to fulfil the mission. He was told to pull down the evil altar of his father’s house and rebuild a new altar for God. A divine replacement! God must take His rightful place for Gideon to succeed. A tough one from human perspective, but not with God. Gideon was obedient. He carried out this operation at night. He pulled down the evil altar of Baal of his father’s house and raised an altar for God.
What an awesome way to show his commitment to God and a detachment from evil altars that would not let him go and do the will of God. The truth is that many Christians need to pull down such spiritual impediments to enable them have a smooth and profitable spiritual relationship with Christ. No man can serve two masters at a time. You cannot eat on the table of the Lord and of the devil.
Are you ready to surrender your life to Jesus? That is the starting point! After your salvation, you must decide to pull down every stronghold that would not let you go. Then, you will be able to serve God in truth and holiness, do a successful warfare and raise an altar to the One and Only True God.
- Satanic altars erected against my life, catch fire and burn to ashes, in the name of Jesus.
- Altars of darkness that will not let me go, you are liars, crumble to powder, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise by Your awesome power and redeem my life from the consequences of the evil altars of my father’s house, in the name of Jesus.
- I speak woe to evil altars assigned against my life in any coven, in the name of Jesus.
- Foundational evil altars, hear the voice of God, release me and let me go, in the name of Jesus.
- Witchcraft coven assigned against my rising, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and make me a living sacrifice for You, in the name of Jesus.
