What Is an Altar?
An altar is a place of relationship between a holy God and you, a place where He can meet with you, and His fire can fall—the fire of blessing, renewal, revival.
In the Old Testament, the altar was related directly to the spiritual and material blessings God intended for His people. It was established so they could be restored to fellowship with Him by bringing sin, guilt, and fellowship offerings. In God’s plan, the altar is the place for expressing lasting love: At the altar, we give, and we receive.
Restoring an altar for fresh fire today is not about building a physical structure or maintaining a natural fire. Rather, the altar God desires is a heart that is fully committed to Him. Remember, the Old Testament altar gave a foreshadowing of what was to come through Christ Jesus. The altar stood at the core of God’s plan of salvation because it pointed to the cross of Christ, which is the source of all God’s blessings.
