I am the Seer of AS GOD SAID IT MUST BE DONE, The Temple of the Most High God – sent forward by God to return man back to His Creator. I have been condemned in this modern time for re-establishing an Earth Altar. Many people have said many things but no one has come forward to fault me with verses from the bible – calling me names will not stop me because it is normal with man – when man lack knowledge and understanding of a subject, man will condemn that thing. We have become selective in which verses in the Bible to accept – we pray to the Ancient of Days, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel), the great God of Sacrifices, yet we condemn sacrifices.
Where is the God of David, the one that commanded the children of Israel in Psalm 50:5 – Gather to me my Saints, those who have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. Where is your Altar upon which your covenant with your God was built.
I have suddenly realized that since AD 70 – when the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed, most people have forgotten to give or refused to offer God sacrifices – no not me. I must return man back to His Creator, I must offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, atonement, new moon (Month), deliverance etc.
I am doing what my fathers of old did to attract God’s love and blessings and gloried God and I will also be glorified by the Almighty God of my Fathers – Adam, Enoch, Noah, Melchizedek, Methuselah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Israel) etc
What is an Altar:
The Altar is a place of sacrifice or memorial, The altar represents the sacred encounter with the living God. When we are in a difficult situation as Jacob was when fleeing from his brother Esau in Genesis 28, he encountered God and received a promise of deliverance. He poured oil on a stone and prayed for protection devoting himself to God. In Genesis 35, upon the fulfillment of God’s promise, God called Jacob to return to Bethel, this time now with flocks and herds and his wives and children and all that God had given him. Jacob was called back to that very place to remember and ponder the deliverance of God. Jacob received another encounter where God gave him a new name and a new set of promises to walk in.
The Altar as a Memorial:
When God split the Jordan river and Israel miraculously crossed into the promised land to fight for their inheritance, the Lord had them bring twelve stones from the middle of the river and pile them up on the other side. This was a memorial to future generations as the Lord said,
“Now the people came up from the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and they camped in Gilgal on the east border of Jericho. And those twelve stones which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up in Gilgal. Then he spoke to the children of Israel, saying: “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know, saying, ‘Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry land’; for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over, that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever.” Joshua 4:19-24
We too can build memorials to God. In a tough time you can dedicate a place to seek God and build an altar to mark that time that you rededicated yourself, asked for mercy, sought out deliverance from an impossible situation. Or it might simply be an entry in your journal where desperate cries were lifted to God. In the years to come you can return to that place and thank God for what He has done and be refreshed with new faith to move into the next season of challenges with a new name and new promises.
The altar as a place of sacrifice:
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1,2
