An Altar is a supernatural system of authorization for the spirit realm to have entrance and encounter with the physical realm. Here, we shall be talking about righteous altars that are holy unto the Lord.
Altars play a key role in Territorial Government and Control (Genesis 12:8, 13:3-4, Genesis 28:10-22. Joshua 18:1).
The Supreme Court of Zion (for petitions, sentencing and summary discharge) 2Kings 19:14-20. Acts 12:1-11, 21-24.
Your altar is the Secret Place of Encounters (Matthew 6:6, Psalm 91. Acts 10:1-6)
Altars provide absolute Supernatural Covering (Exodus 13:20-22, Exodus 14:19-20, 24-25, Psalm 91).
An altar is a Point of Spiritual Exchange (1Samuel 8-19, Isaiah 55:1-3).
An altar is a channel of Supernatural Empowerment (you’ll not be empty). Judges 6:22-27.
A Trap for the Wicked (those who disregard the great power of Jehovah, always leads to their death and destruction) (1Samuel 5:1-7, 1Kings 18:17-24).
Altars have power to Break Old Foundations (Noah changed the dynamics of events) Genesis 8:20-22, Isaiah 61:4-5. If you are suffering from faulty foundation, raise an altar unto the Lord.
Altar is a place of Covenant Creation and Renewal (John 3:16, Romans 10:10).
Altars Bring an End to Destruction and Plagues (2Samuel 24:18-25. 1Samuel 7:8-14). If strange things are happening in your life, raise an altar as a standard against the enemy.
A Double-Edged Sword (Triggers unusual blessings and also swift justice) 2Samuel 7:6-12.
No man is greater than his altar. Show me your altar and the commitment you make therein, and I will tell you whom you are. Who you are today is a direct reflection of the altar you have raised. Your speed in life depends on the power of your altar. If you don’t raise your own altar, you’ll become a victim of another man’s altar. What makes one man more powerful than another is the quantity and quality of sacrifices he offers consistently upon his altar. What makes one man of God supersede another can be traced to his personal altar life. Quite evidently, those families that take their altars seriously live more notable lives and stand out in the community.
This, therefore, lends credence to the fact that one’s personal altar is the taproot of his spiritual life. The deeper this taproot, the taller your life grows; the more resilient you get, the more you boom and flourish, and the more relevant you are to your world – just like the palm tree.
Finally, we learnt that it is sacrifice that makes an altar speak. Without sacrifices, an altar can’t unleash what it has in store. There’s no access to the spiritual that costs nothing! This is why spiritual men like David said; “I cannot appear before God empty-handed.”
They that do know their God shall be strong and shall do exploits!
