TOPIC: Evil Altars, Let Me Go (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 23 January 2023)

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exodus 17, Exodus 18, Exodus 19, Luke 23, Luke 24, John 1

FIRE SCRIPTURE: Judges 6:12-27 (KJV)

12 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.

13 And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.

14 And the Lord looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee?

15 And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.

16 And the Lord said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.

17 And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me.

18 Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set it before thee. And he said, I will tarry until thou come again.

19 And Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought it out unto him under the oak, and presented it.

20 And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so.

21 Then the angel of the Lord put forth the end of the staff that was in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the Lord departed out of his sight.

22 And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the Lord, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord God! for because I have seen an angel of the Lord face to face.

23 And the Lord said unto him, Peace be unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die.

24 Then Gideon built an altar there unto the Lord, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

25 And it came to pass the same night, that the Lord said unto him, Take thy father’s young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that is by it:

26 And build an altar unto the Lord thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down.

27 Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the Lord had said unto him: and so it was, because he feared his father’s household, and the men of the city, that he could not do it by day, that he did it by night.

MEMORY VERSE: “13 But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: 14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:” – Exodus 34:13-14

When you stand for God, evil altars will have to bow.

Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit


MFM Devotional For Today 2023 MESSAGE:

Today, we are looking into a deep mystery about altars. This may seem unimportant to many Christians, but I pray that the Lord will damage your ignorance and give you deep understanding of spiritual things, in the name of Jesus.

Altars are real. They exist in the physical and spiritual realms. Altars can be for good or bad purposes. They are built for God to worship and exalt Him. In the same vein, some are erected to worship idols and satanic entities. Altars are places of sacrifice, good and bad ones. At the altars, we see either the traffic of holy angels or demons, as the case may be. Each consignment of holy angels or demons runs errands for specific purposes. It is important therefore to have a deep understanding as growing and mature Christians on this subject.

The instance of Gideon as a chosen deliverer of his people at a time like this is a familiar story. But looking deeply, we see God’s clear instructions to Gideon before he could proceed to fulfil the mission. He was told to pull down the evil altar of his father’s house and rebuild a new altar for God. A divine replacement! God must take His rightful place for Gideon to succeed. A tough one from human perspective, but not with God. Gideon was obedient. He carried out this operation at night. He pulled down the evil altar of Baal of his father’s house and raised an altar for God.

What an awesome way to show his commitment to God and a detachment from evil altars that would not let him go and do the will of God. The truth is that many Christians need to pull down such spiritual impediments to enable them have a smooth and profitable spiritual relationship with Christ. No man can serve two masters at a time. You cannot eat on the table of the Lord and of the devil.

Are you ready to surrender your life to Jesus? That is the starting point! After your salvation, you must decide to pull down every stronghold that would not let you go. Then, you will be able to serve God in truth and holiness, do a successful warfare and raise an altar to the One and Only True God.



  1. Satanic altars erected against my life, catch fire and burn to ashes, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Altars of darkness that will not let me go, you are liars, crumble to powder, in the name of Jesus.
  3. O God, arise by Your awesome power and redeem my life from the consequences of the evil altars of my father’s house, in the name of Jesus.


  1. I speak woe to evil altars assigned against my life in any coven, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Foundational evil altars, hear the voice of God, release me and let me go, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Witchcraft coven assigned against my rising, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
  4. O God, arise and make me a living sacrifice for You, in the name of Jesus.
