Don’t Let the Fire Go Out

On The Alter

Introduction : Lev. 6:12-13

A. How many know that we need a move of God in our World, Nation our

cities our community ! I don’t know about You but I want the Power of

God to fall ! That people may know that the God that I have given my

life too is alive and well and full of majesty full of power ! I want them

to know that the Church is Powerful ! that the Church is the place

where they can come to meet God ! Have their need’s met ! That it

the place where the glory of God is ! that His presence is there !

A place were their is peace, joy full of glory !

How many want the world, nation, cities our community our Churches

to be a place like this ?

Well turn to someone and tell them that they are the Church !

If we want our world, nation, cities and community and our building to

be filled with the power and majesty, the presence of God the glory of

God then it time ! I said it time that you and I walk, live like we know

that we know that we are the temples of the living God !

1 Cor 3:16

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God

dwells in you?

And as the temples of God we must offer up a sacrifices !!

Heb 13:15

Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God,

that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name.

We do this by coming to the alter ! I believe that we the church

have let the fire go out on the alter in our church in our homes !

The Bible first mentions the word alter in Gen. 8:20

Gen 8:20

Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal

and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Then we see many times after this that the word altar is mentioned

But I want us to look at one tonight that I believe is what we need to

once again bring in the glory, the presence, the majesty and power

of God in to our lives thus into our world, our cities, community !

Lev 6:12-13

’And the fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not be put

out. And the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt

offering in order on it; and he shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings.

’A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.


1. Concern of the times in the world

a. But we need be more concern with the neglect in the house of God of the

altar !

b. Old time " after services " many years 10- mid-night to dawn

seeking the face of God waiting till the glory fell ! people who were

hungry for a move of God ! Not satisfy with a service that just

entained you ! not going home until they knew that God had touch them !

with His presence !

c. Programs not enough !

1. God can do all things ! He doesn’t need our programs ! He doesn’t need

our help !

2. God resond to prayer !

Noah Abram, Issac, Jacob Moses build altar !

The first thing that they did was to build an altar !

In the book of Leviticus tell us of the offering that are to be brought

to the altar in Chap 1:1-17 it gives us the discribtion of the burnt

offering and how important they were for the atonement of sins

and in our text Lev. 6:12-13 it tell us that the fire should never

go out !

Altar not only at church but in our lives ! one that we always go to !

more important than anything ! our personal altar !

If the fire go out on the altar we are only a form of what God wants !

We become a form of reglion godless on tradition

O God help us to build an Altar !

David said " Ps 26:6

I will wash mine hands in innocence: so will I compass thine altar,

O LORD: (go about thy altar )

Here in Lev. we see that a altar is a place of devotion and of faith !

And the fire must never go OUT ! a place of where are sins are

forgiving ! Oh come church it a place we need to vist everyday !
