God commanded us
Exodus 20:24 An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me,… in ALL PLACES where I record my name I will come unto thee,
To invite God into our pursuits.
To redeem the earth back to the Lord:
2 Corinthians 4:4,
To establish God’s Kingdom on earth
The New Testament altar
1 Corinthians 6: 19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
FOUNDATION is the personal altar;
As a Christian you must diligently service your personal altar DAILY….
Spheres where we have a burden
How to build altars
It starts with building your personal altar; by commitment to a consistent time of prayer with the Lord.
Taking prayer personal retreats and fasts
Joining other prayer altars in areas where you have a burden.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
