Building altars

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Scripture

We have recently published two articles: Dispelling spiritual darkness, which is about prayer altars and A spiritual priesthood about how wrong it is when we, as believers, call ourselves priests. These studies prompted a few the questions: how do we reconcile the building of altars and sacrificing by people who are not of the Levitical line?

We may need to challenge our understanding about altars and the premise that only priests were allowed to offer sacrifices. In this study, we will do that. We will first define what the word altar means in the context of scripture. We will also search out the instructions regarding the building of an altar and investigate who built altars and why.

Dispelling Spiritual Darkness

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Prayer, Spiritual Warfare

Darkness is the spiritual force that takes over when the will of YHVH is rejected. This gives the enemy legal right and authority. We are influenced by this darkness around us. We fall into temptation, we turn away from YHVH, our prayers are not effective, we don’t hear YHVH’s voice and don’t know His will.

As believers, we are called to be lights in this darkness. The question is, are we effective in dispelling darkness or are we helping it along? This article is meant to help believers to be effective in this task.

Generational curses and curses spoken over us

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Spiritual Warfare

In our previous article, we have looked at blessings and curses from YHVH’ s perspective and also from ours as believers. We have learned how powerful a blessing and a curse can be. When we bless somebody and invoke YHVH’s name, He is the power behind that blessing, if it is according to His will. Blessings or curses spoken over us by unbelievers can also have an effect in our lives. Allow me to explain.

Strength to go on

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Faith

We need strength to get through every day, some days more than others. Sometimes life is hard. During these downs we often find it difficult to drag ourselves through yet another day. It seems that there is no light at the end of the long, dark tunnel. This may cause us to be depressed and despondent not wanting to go on.

These are the times we need extra strength. Where do we go to for this? YHVH teaches us through His Word, that there are a number of ways in which we can be strengthened.
