When you ponder on Abraham’s journey, you’ll discover that it was a string of altars and sacrifices leading up to the sacrifice of Isaac:
“The Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the Lord, who had appeared to him.
From there he went on toward the hills east of Bethel and pitched his tent, with Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to the Lord and called on the name of the Lord.
“…and where he had first built an altar. There Abram called on the name of the Lord.”
So Abram moved his tents and went to live near the great trees of Mamre at Hebron, where he built an altar to the Lord.
Abraham kept building altars and making sacrifices, until he got to the point where he built the ultimate altar, and made the ultimate sacrifice: his son!
When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.
His life was a string of altars. His walk with God was a testimony of altars; a pointer to a life lived in worship to God.
Now, I’d like you to understand today that Altars and sacrifices are the evidence of worship. They are the proof of worship. Regrettably, it appears that some of the people, who are associated with dark forces, have a better understanding of this.
You cannot claim to be worshiping God, if there are no altars and sacrifices associated with your walk with God. A life of worship is a life of altars.
