TOPIC: Evil Altars, Let Me Go (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 24 January 2023)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 20, Exodus 21, Exodus 22, John 2, John 3, John 4
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 18:19-30 (KJV)
19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.
20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.
21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:
24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.
27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down.
MEMORY VERSE: “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.” – Romans 12:1

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE FIRE OF GOD SHALL GO BEFORE YOU AND DESTROY EVERY ALTAR OF DARKNESS, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:
God no longer lives in physical altars as in the time of old, when patriarchs and prophets were quick to raise altars unto Him. Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elijah, David, etc., built altars to enable them worship God and give offerings. The altars of Dagon, Ashteroth, Diana and other such gods and goddesses were equally for worship and sacrifices.
It is undeniable that satanic altars are all around to take evil sacrifices in order to steal, kill and destroy the souls of men, their virtues and destinies. It is unfortunate that the satanic revival of today is bringing back evil altars where not only libations of water are poured, but also human blood, human flesh and other unimaginable things. Evil altars are places of evil worship and sacrifices that are anti-God. They are places of evil agenda. You shall not become an object of sacrifice on any evil altar, in the name of Jesus.
Certain households are still maintaining their family altars erected by their ancestors for satanic worship. Do you know that these altars are strong enough to hold in place evil ancestral agreements, vows, evil dedications and other tokens that their ancestors had with the powers behind such altars and keep them binding? With these in place, the accuser of brethren finds it easy to accuse its victims and hinder them from receiving and enjoying their kingdom rights. You need to break yourself loose from such satanic entanglements and be free to enjoy your divine benefits.
Elijah took a bold step to destroy and rebuild the altar in 1 Kings 18. He considered it a dishonour to call on the Lord God of Israel from the same altar with Baal prophets. He did the needful to prepare the presence and manifestation of the awesome power of God.
Beloved, there are altars and there altars! As he called on the Lord God Almighty, God honoured His name. He answered by fire instantly. Unlike Baal who was on vacation, our God is the Consuming Fire! At the end of the day, the prophets of Baal experienced doom and destruction.
- Evil altars stealing good things from me, enough is enough. Catch fire, burn to ashes, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Ghost fire, consume all wicked priests and their evil altars working against my life, in the name of Jesus.
- At Your manifestation, O God, let people acknowledge You as the One and Only True God, in the name of Jesus.
- Evil agreements between my ancestors and evil spirits by their altars, I am not your candidate, be nullified by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Seen and unseen evil altars around my habitation crumble to dust, in the name of Jesus.
- Habitation of wickedness in my family, I pull you down, in the name of Jesus.
- I raise a living altar to the Almighty God in my life and home, in the name of Jesus.
