Exodus 30:1 "You shall make an altar to burn incense on..."
Moses was called to the mountain of God to dwell in the presence of God to receive the revelations of God. God gave Moses intricate details on the construction of the Tent of Meeting and the furniture therein. In chapter 30 of Exodus God told Moses to construct an altar of incense.
Prophetically the altar is the believer who is a sacrifice to God and who makes sacrifices to God. Once the sacrifice is made the anointing is released. Many in the church want the anointing on their lives and ministry but they are unwilling to become a sacrifice and make sacrifices to God. Then the altar is the place where God comes to make an agreement at the altar. Your sacrifice and anointing will bring God to you to make a covenant agreement with you.
In this hour the Lord is calling for the believer to become an altar where incense is being burned. Incense is the symbol of intercession. In Psalms 141:2 David said, "Let my prayer be set before you as incense." In Revelation 5:8 John saw this scene in heaven, "...the four living creatures and the twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints."
Beloved of God you are the altar and upon this altar is incense which is a picture of intercession. Again God is looking for intercessors in the earth. God is calling a people who will stand in intercession until the manifestation of heaven comes down into the earth.
Please understand that intercession is more than just praying, or praying for others. Intercession is ENTERING INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD. In intercession we INTER SESSION with the Judge of the all the earth. Here we receive INSTRUCTIONS, IMPARTATION, and INVITATION. Then we receive from Adonai His will to release in the earth through prayer. Intercession is not me going to Him with what I want. But it is me going to Him to receive from Him what He wants. The heart of intercession is always, "Let Your Will be done in earth as it is heaven."
A few weeks ago the Democratic National Convention met in Charlotte North Carolina to nominate President Barack Obama for a second term to the White House. But also heaven and hell met in Charlotte North Carolina. Intercessors gathered on the weekend before the start of the convention to intercede for the meetings. Muslims gathered in Charlotte to pray to their god, Allah. It appeared that hell had struck a great blow in the Democratic Convention when the name of God was removed from the platform of the Democratic Party. But when this was reported God's name was placed back in the platform. In the spirit I see that this move to remove God's name was a demonic scheme, the devil always operates in the dark, when it was brought forth the demons retreated.
When we release intercession in the earth it is received and stored in the heavens until the opportune time that God releases it in the earth to cause a shift or a realignment.
Will you say yes to the Call of God to become a altar where intercession is being offered day and night? Will you become the altar and the intercessor? The future of America is being weighed in the balance as it awaits your answer.
