Tearing Down The Strange Altars
Scriptures For Meditation — Judges 6:1-27; 2Kings 23:1-8; Eph 6:12
Welcome to Day 4 of our corporate fasting and prayers. Over the next 3 days, we will be dealing with High Places, as a preparation to praying and prophesying into each month of the coming year 2021, from Day 7.
Today, the focus will be on tearing down the altars on the high places of the kingdom of darkness.
As the bible tells us in Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
In bible times, the priests and worshippers of the demon gods would often situate the altars to their deities on the high places. This is also in keeping with the desire of Satan to exalt his throne above the throne of God as the bible tells us in Isaiah 14:12-17
Isa 14:12 “How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning! You have been thrown down to the earth, you who destroyed the nations of the world.
Isa 14:13 For you said to yourself, ‘I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God’s stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north.
Isa 14:14 I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.’
Isa 14:15 Instead, you will be brought down to the place of the dead, down to its lowest depths.
Isa 14:16 Everyone there will stare at you and ask, ‘Can this be the one who shook the earth and made the kingdoms of the world tremble?
Isa 14:17 Is this the one who destroyed the world and made it into a wasteland? Is this the king who demolished the world’s greatest cities and had no mercy on his prisoners?’
As we read in our opening two Scriptures today, in both Gideon’s and Josiah’s lives, tearing down of demonic altars and getting rid of tokens of idolatry were the precursors to revival and restoration.
Today, we will be doing the same. We are going to tear down every demonic altar from which the enemy has been speaking against our lives and destinies.
We will also allow God to search our lives and expose whatever altars we may ourselves have built in our lives that have empowered the works of darkness in, or against us.
Pastor Wale Ola
Let’s ask God to reveal whatever has become an idol in our lives that is hindering our walk with Him or His work in our lives.
Let’s repent and remove every token of idolatry from our lives —Those things that have taken the place of God in our lives; those things that have stood between us and the will of God, preventing us from giving Him all the worship and adoration that are due to Him.
Let’s also ask that God will remove us from the influence of whatever satanic altars that may be active and operational in our family lines that are working against us, and are opening us to demonic Interference. (We saw how Gideon suffered the consequences of this in his life until God instructed him to tear it down)
Let’s pray that God will frustrate and destroy all the works of the enemy that he has fashioned against us, and let’s declare by faith, that it is only the counsel of the Lord that will stand in our lives and in our household in Jesus’s Name.
Let’s thank God for coming to our aid and for protecting and delivering us from the plans and wiles of the enemy against us.
