We are looking at a message entitled, “Deliverance from evil altars.” And as you read this message, I advise that you pray the prayer points attached to it. I also encourage you to pay attention to everything in it so that you can be richly blessed after going through it. In the book of I Samuel 7: 7-11, it is written, “And when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to Mizpeh, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard it, they were afraid of the Philistines. And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the Lord our God for us, that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines. And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it for a burnt offering wholly unto the Lord: and Samuel cried unto the Lord for Israel; and the Lord heard him. And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the Lord thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel. And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until they came under Beth-car.”

We notice in the above story that the Lord thundered with a great thunder upon the enemies of Israel after Samuel built an altar and offered a sacrifice to the Lord.

WHAT ARE ALTARS?

In the Bible, altars are designed for sacrifices and not just for decoration (Exodus 20: 24). The Bible also described the various methods of constructing these altars. Some were made of sand or unhewn stones, that is, stones that have not been chiseled with any tool, and some were made of bricks. In some cases, a natural rock could automatically be turned into an altar. Altars were either constructed for God or idols. Any altar constructed for the purpose of idolatry incurred the wrath of God. In the Bible, we read the story of a king who was sacrificing by an altar and God sent a prophet who prophesied to it. This shows the role of altars in spiritual transactions. As a Bible student, you would find that the great men of God in the Old Testament built altars. This was because an altar served as a medium of communication and worship. Abraham, Noah, Joshua, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Gideon, Samuel and David built altars. When Elijah challenged the Baal worshipers at Mount Carmel, he told them to construct their own altar and when it got to his turn, what he did was to repair the broken down altar of the Lord.

An altar could also be described as a place where animals are slaughtered for sacrifice, that is, a place where blood is shed and where blood cries. It is a spiritual dinning table where spirits are offered food. It is a place of spiritual bureau de change where blood is exchanged for something. It is a place where contact is made with the spirit world, and it could be with good or bad spirits. It is a place of spiritual fellowship with either clean or unclean spirits. When Jacob built an altar in Bethel, it was the angels of God who were ascending and descending on it. If he had built a demonic one, there would have been the traffic of evil angels otherwise known as demons.

An altar is a place where covenants are made with spiritual powers. It is also a place of deliberation, decision and action whether negative or positive. From the above description of an altar, we can see that there are positive altars as well as negative ones. For example, the cross where Jesus died was an altar of sacrifice of the Son of God. That cross therefore stood for a positive altar, which is meant for good purposes. When somebody says your prayer altar is weak, it means that your prayer life is nothing to write home about. If they say your holiness is equally weak, they are telling you that your level of holiness is not up to God’s standard. Conversely, negative altars are raised by the enemies to steal, kill and to destroy. An altar can be raised to bless or destroy, promote or pull down a person, an organization or a thing. Altars can also be raised to enhance a course or to frustrate it. So, we see that altars were raised to either save lives or to destroy the enemies in the Old Testament. According to the passage, Samuel raised an altar in the name of God against the Philistines, and as a result, God became angry with the Philistines and thundered with a great thunder against them from heaven. The altar made things easy for the Israelites. God fought for them and they did not have to do anything by themselves.

I was wondering about this sermon my self, had to stop my self from moving on and not reading It so I persevered and finished reading. I come up with that I don't no of many things that other people have experienced. I think now the things that Daniel talked a bout are surely real for some folk. Kim Peltier

This sermon is clear revelation of the concealed work of satan in the life of people. It is this concealed work that makes the christain walk very difficult. Without this revelation the situation will be worse. Thanks for God working though his annointed minister by which this is revelaed to us.

Hi. I am five years late, but I hope someone can respond to me. I'm a Nigerian living in America and struggling with occult bondage. On one hand, I hear African pastors say to do this and that prayer and prayer points and all will be well (and that has never worked for me); and on the other hand, American ministers are almost entirely hopeless when it comes to spiritual warfare issues. I have been struggling with these issues for many years. How do I connect with a Nigerian minister or ministry here in America for the help I need?

I am not sure where you live in America, but it seems as if you need to attend a deliverance ministry. Pastor Ed Cintronelli {https://www.facebook.com/pastoredcitronnelli/} who is based in New York has a strong and powerful ministry. You can view his ministry via youtube also. I pray that this helps.

Hi, Pat. I live in North Carolina. I have contacted Citronelli's ministry several times without success. I don't want to go somewhere if I can't talk to someone first.

MFM is a ministry that, according to what I have found, disregards the primary commands of Jesus and focuses on 'fighting the enemy' (i.e. deliverance ministry). By focusing on such a needful ministry, MFM believes they are justified to disregard "the weightier matters of the law" and do not care for the practical and actual well-being of fellow christians. If they meet a christian in need of both deliverance as well as personal ministry such as a place to live until they can get on their own feet, MFM will seek only to minister deliverance even if a place to live is more pressing and important. I know because several MFM branches in America have done it to me. Ministering deliverance to people is not as important as obeying the primary commands of the Lord to "love the Lord your God," to "love one another (other christians) as I have loved you," and to "love your neighbor (everyone) as yourself". I cannot testify that MFM is doing what God primarily commands all christians to do' I can only testify that they focus on deliverance ministry and therefore neglect "the weightier matters of the law".

I will advice you to speak with Dr Stella Immanuel of Fire Power Ministries or go for deliverance in any of the MFM closer to you, spiritual battles a real, do not under estimate them.

What do you mean ''an Africa man''? He is a Christian servant of GOD. Christianity is all about Christ in us, not where we come from - John 15:4-6.

Emmanuel Ehizuelen

commented on Feb 9, 2019

I believe what this brother met to say..its refreshing given all the negative attacks on the African peoples globally.. to know that God shows no partiality and I accept anyone who fears and honors Him regardless of race and nationality.. May God continue to bless the African Church and all believers in Jesus Christ .Amen

Thanks for this! I now understand what happened to my family. The Bible rightly said people perish because of lack and rejection of knowledge. Our place of worship was destroyed by my husband’s (pastor) infidelity which was a big surprise after 20 years of ministry. My marriage ended in him filing divorce after 25 years of marriage and moved in with the choir director and baby mother. My daughter became diabetic at 18 with no family history. She stopped going to school and has a mental breakdown. My other daughter joined the military and also had a mental breakdown. My oldest daughter, dropped out of college her last year (the year the infidelity started) and suffered depression. I knew what was going but was did not understand how to fight and destroy the alters that were build. This reading was a real eye-opener.

commented on Apr 6, 2019

I am a Nigerian in America and have been suffering due to these alters and such family things as occult family members praying daily against me to destroy me. I have suffered constant and consistent lack because of all this. Do you know people in America I can reach out to-- Africans, not Americans, please. Americans don't believe in the supernatural-- not in God nor in the satanic-- due to their prideful mindsets, therefore, they are usually unable to help anyone struggling from spiritual bondage.

Hi, I am a Nigerian living in America and have been suffering for at least the past sixteen years under curses of poverty and lack and closed doors on all good opportunities. God has given me many gifts, but I have been the tail rather than the head. I have been put even lower than the very lowest in society because of the curses coming from my occult family and the ancestry. Does anyone know any Nigerian ministries in America where I can reach out to for help?

Hi, Tania. May God bless and restore you soon. I don't know if they have an MFM ministry in Mexico, but you can call MFM headquarters in the US and ask them. This is the site for the one in Bronx: https://m.facebook.com/M.F.M.Brooklyn.NewYork/. It can be hard to get a hold of them but keep trying by email and phone. Also if you haven't done this, call around to churches near you and ask if they do any deliverance from the demonic. Sometimes that's the best way and it's what I'm doing now myself in the US.

I talked to an MFM minister and she said that the closest MFM there is to Mexico is in Texas. I know their headquarters is in Houston, TX but I believe they have other stations in Texas. Can you Google for MFM stations in Texas and call them for more information? One of the numbers in Houston is (713) 240-0869. I just called them now.
