The Altar is a place of worship, relationship, and communion with the father as well as a place of offering sacrifice. A lot of altars have been long broken, forgotten and the connection between man and God destroyed. God seeks people that will rebuild these altars and reconcile man back to God. (2 Cor. 5:18-19).
The main essence of the altar in a man’s life is for fellowship with God. However, if the altar is faulty, the relationship is faulty as well. Unfortunately, many of us know about the faults in our altar, for some of us, it is dead or even non-existent. It is difficult to commune with the father, offer sacrifices, pray, seek His face and His voice or even study His Word, and we do not know what to do about it, or how to go about resurrecting this relationship and fill what has been empty in our lives. Take note that if the altar of God is absent or is faulty, another will take its place (1Sam 16:14). Another which is not of God and automatically directs the affairs of your life and blinds your eyes to the truth (Matt 13:14-15).
God answers prayers only from an altar that is in good health, one that has been properly built. God delights in pure offerings and sacrifices and these can only come from a good altar, the Altar of God.
We have been called to rise up and rebuild the altar of God, thereby restoring order to the people of God, reconciling them back to the Father, and bringing back the ancient landmark of God’s principles, standards and statutes and finally a place for God to dwell in the heart of man. Then people will say again that, “The Lord, He is God”. And for some of us whose altars have been non-existent, you can start building one by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, confess and repent of your sins, throw down the bad and evil altars that have been at work in you which are the altars of satan, and fellowship with the Father every day, every time, everywhere. Having done all these, there will be freedom, followed by the sound of abundance of rain, then you will see God’s hand at work in your life and the rain of God’s presence and glory will fall on you and your life will never remain the same. God loves you.
