Are You Innocently Building Ruining Alters?

Understanding an altar

An altar is a raised structure where gifts, offerings and sacrifices are made to God (or a god). It's a place of devotions; it's a place where a man meets with his God. Altars are crucially involved in our lives to the extend of determining our successes and failures.

The first altar we read of is that erected by Noah (Gen. 8:20). Altars were erected by Abraham (Gen. 12:7; 13:4; 22:9), by Isaac (Gen. 26:25), by Jacob (33:20; 35:1, 3), and by Moses (Ex. 17:15, "Jehovah-nissi").

Generally, an altar is defined as follows:
  • A place of spiritual sacrifice    
  • A place of contact with the spirit world     
  • A place of invocation     
  • A place of servicing and activating covenants     
  • Entry point of spirits into the world   
  • Launching pad of spiritual operations

How you built an altar

An altar whether physical or spiritual is something which is built. Altars are built with or without our consent; everyone has an altar(s) in their lives.  The question is, what kind of alters are they?

When you do something repeatedly it becomes an habit and this habit becomes part of you; this develops into an altar. The reason why it's so hard to break some habits in your life is because they have become altars. It is good to know that an altar is a stronghold which has speaking, attraction and retention powers. Please read that sentence again.

Destroying satanic altars

Satanic altars are either raised by us, our parents or our forefathers. These include prostitution, broken marriages/families, idol worship, drunkenness etc.

Such altars result in the following: 
  • Oppose God's grace in people's lives
  • Endless struggles and suffering 
  • Limitations and frustrations  
  • Delay the plan of God in people's lives   
  • Unsolvable mysteries
However these altars can be destroyed through the blood of Jesus which breaks every bondage. During crucifixion of Jesus Christ, when He hang on the cross, this is what happened:

And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose.  Matthew 27:51-52

Here the bible says the earth did quake and the rocks were rent, indicating that every foundation and altar was destroyed and a new altar of Grace was established with the blood of Jesus being the sacrifice to the altar. For you to destroy satanic altars in your life you need to speak to them, break and silence them in the name of Jesus Christ and by his blood. The book of Revelation  12:11  states that they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony. 

Speak, by the power of the blood!


Raising a Godly altar

These are altars that glorify God, it's the meeting point between man and the true God (Jesus Christ); this is the place to activate the covenant of the blood of the lamb of God. Godly alters can also be raised corporately by our families. For instance you may have found a family of preachers or singers. It doesn't just happen; they purposed to practice and serve God. That is where parenthood matters.

Raising a Godly altar is done by developing Godly habits like:   
  • Altar of prayer-praying always    
  •  Altar of praise -praising God all time     
  • Altar of Giving-being a faithful, cheerful and sacrificial giver     
  • Altar of the word of God-reading the Bible everyday
The altars named above will give you spiritual breakthrough, prosperity, good health, divine direction and connection, physical and spiritual blessings and above all God's favor. Therefore choose from today onwards to raise a godly altar which will not only help, not only you, but also generations to come.
