Secret Altars

In a recent teaching, “Secret Things in High Places” at http://godsrevivalarena.org/sermons/secret-things-in-high-places , we studied how the devil wants us to have secret high places in our lives habits, addictions, secret strongholds and sins that he can use to destroy us. The Lord revealed that the devil would like to laugh at us in the corner as we are religiously fine in front of others, singing on the choir, preaching, shouting, and doing other “churchy” things, but privately having “secret altars”. He can use those secret altars to completely undermine our spiritual lives. Just as Israel worshiped at the altars in high places, religiously following after the traditions of Judaism, but also practicing the ungodly rituals of the nations around them, many believers are sacrificing their lives at secret altars.

There are many types of altars erected by demons and devils, and some of us find ourselves worshipping at those altars. There are “Media Altars” erected on mountains of the internet on Facebook, other social networks, video platforms. They range from porn to horoscope, private immoral chat, and so on. There are also “Media Altars” on our television stations and movie theaters; demonic temptations designed to lure us to sacrifice ourselves. Even ungodly music, upon which many have sacrificed their minds and emotional feelings.

We must decide as believers not to sacrifice our minds, bodies, soul, and spirits on the “altars of the world”. We only worship at the altar of God. Romans 12:1-2

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

We must refuse to sacrifice our time, resources, imagination, souls to the altars that the world has erected. Instead, give ourselves away body, mind and soul at God’s altar. Humbling ourselves, praying, seeking God, turning from our own ways, giving ourselves away completely to God’s glory. Our lives must be dedicated as living sacrifices on the altar of God; sending up a sweet smell that pleases God, and draws others to his glory. Let us tear down the altars of the world, and keep our knees at the altar of God. Learn more from the sermon below.
