An altar is a place of spiritual sacrifices or rather a place of communion with God or gods. There are two types of altars which include; Godly altars and evil altars. A Godly altar is intended to be a place of true worship for God whereas the evil altars are raised to stop the plan of God concerning a person or limit him/her. The seven altars of Balaam were raised against the Israelites and they are even today used by the enemy to fight God’s people. Numbers 23;1-2 says “Then Balaam said to Balak, "Build seven altars for me here, and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me here." Balak did just as Balaam had spoken, and Balak and Balaam offered up a bull and a ram on each altar.” According to the book of Numbers 23;1-2, Balaam raised seven evil altars not once but three different times with the sole purpose of cursing the children of Israel! However, none of them worked and this was because no sin could be found in the children of Israel. It was also evident that the altar that the children of Israel were serving was at a higher level than the altar that was cursing them. From the above scripture we learn that the weak altar will always be silenced by a strong altar and the strong altar will always silence the weak altar. If a person is living holy, the satanic altars will not work against him/her. Sin creates an open door for the enemy to attack. The children of Israel could not be cursed because they had erected a higher altar than the altars of Balaam. Exodus 12;35-36. You raise an altar through giving sacrifice.
The Altars of Balaam
The altars of Balaam are erected to stop the progress of a person. For instance when the children of Israel were moving from Egypt to their promised land they had a great resistance from there enemy. The resistance was to stop the progress of the Israelites. Same way, today there are altars that are raised by the enemy purposely to stop progress in your life, career and business and if you do not conquer altars against your progress others will progress and you remain where you are. There are some people who cannot go behold a certain level meaning that the enemy is fighting against the progress of that person. The altars of Balaam are raised to make someone loose his/her original value or purpose. God created us uniquely and for a divine purpose. Jeremiah 1;5 says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." The altar of Balaam will always work to ensure that every leader is helpless. The altars of Balaam will fight against you to ensure that you do not win any battle. David had never lost a battle. Every time he stepped onto a field of battle, David won the battle and walked off the field a victor. All Balaam had to do was to tempt the Israelites to sin in such a way that they would fall under the curse of God as laid out in the law.
