I heard the Father God speak to me quietly the other day. He wants us to know His Altar is a holy place, set apart unto Him. Our response to His voice in our hearts by the Word of God causes us to come to His Altar. It is not a place to stand in shame, but one where His glory is revealed in us. Let the shame go and receive forgiveness and healing from Him. Bring the sacrifice of sorrow and praise. Sorrow for our sins and praise for His forgiveness being freely offered through the blood of Jesus The Lord. Because of the cross of Christ, we have an open Heaven invitation for the love of God being released into our lives. His arms are open wide waiting for our return to Him. Let that precious love call you home today.
He loves us so much. He is waiting for us at that Holy Altar! Never let shame and embarrassment keep you from responding to His call to you. Let it all go and get ready to receive the gift of Salvation, forgiveness and healing in our spirits, souls and bodies.
Psalm 43:4 The Passion Translation
4 Then I will come closer to your very altar
until I come before you, the God of my ecstatic joy!
I will praise you with the harp that plays in my heart,
to you, my God, my magnificent God!
Isaiah 56:7 The Passion Translation
7 ‘I will welcome you into my holy mountain
and make you joyful in my house of prayer.
I will accept every sacrifice and offering
that you place on my altar,
for my house of worship will be known
as a house of prayer for all people.’”
