Test: EPHESIANS 6:18
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
I’m about to take you through a piece of information that will change your life for good and make you be in dominion of your life and your situations at all time. Ensure you go through this till the end to get the details I want to expose to you for your own good.
There was an incident that happened one day, I saw police officers moving in and out of a premises, people began to panic and at every point in time the officers will interact with the security guard on duty. Curious to know what happened someone called the security guard to inquire why police officers were coming in and out of the premises, the man said he was attacked by hoodlums at night, they actually came to kill him but they could not, he showed us the cloth he was wearing that night and we saw how the weapon cut through the cloth but never penetrate the man’s body. After much efforts to kill him failed, they left him and ran away. He later called the head of the institution he was guarding who later called the police officers.
This incident was an eyes opener to me, it got done on me that the man was property prepared for the battle, he does not need to rush anywhere to ensure protections, any where he finds himself he is already secured by what he has done to his body.
This is exactly how God want his people to be. The original plans of God is to secure your body as His habitation, you are meant to be a carrier of God any where at anytime. You do not need to rush to your house, you do not need to rush to your church or a prayer centre before you take control of a situation, you are to take dominion and be in control at all time because you are a power carrier. This means that when three is a need to pray in your school, in your office, in the bus traveling, in the kitchen any where, you look up and alter your words then you immediately see the result.

Some folks belief it is until they get to their church altar before they can get result to their prayers, some have a stationed altar somewhere where they belief that is the only place God can answer their prayers, but your God is the God of the mountain and God of the valley, He is the omniscience, he wants to live in you so you can be anywhere, take dominion, pray for deliverance and make things happen. You may have your altar where you present to God your special offerings and sacrifices like your church, this is normal but not limited to that. There are issues that will need urgent attention that you need to act promptly, what will you do, you take action there and then with positive results.
Ephesians 6:18 encourages you to pray always with all prayers and supplication in the spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints, then the questions is where do I pray to fulfil this Biblical injunction? This will lead us to the next topic in this discussion :
WHERE CAN YOU PRAY
Prayers can be offered any where anytime, on the road, in the car, in the kitchen, in the toilet, In the church, In your house, In the market, In your office, etc Then the question that follows is :
WHERE CAN BE YOUR ALTAR ?
Going through the Bible, we have cases of altars built by the people of God, in most cases, the altar may not be visited again, they built the altar whenever there was an encounter with the Almighty God and moved on in their journey of life. WHERE CAN BE YOUR ALTAR? YOUR ALTAR COULD BE ANYWHERE YOU ARE MOVED TO PRAY. Altar may not need to be a particular place. Though we can still have a permanent altar. God visited His people in different locations for different purposes. There was no peculiarity to where and why God visited in the old and the new testament. In the new testament, Jesus healed people and perform miracles in different locations and at different circumstances. In Acts 3:1-10, Peter and John healed a man lame from his mother’s womb at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful. That man has been there several years begging for alms, but one day he encountered Peter and John who have been empowered to become a MOVING ALTAR, they never dragged the man into the temple before they prayed, they only took charge of the situation and God who resides in them answered immediately. You may want to ask, what about the aspect of seeds, gifts and special sacrifices? I will want you to know that altar is not only for seeds, gifts or offerings, it also includes where we pray, worship and reverence God. This last aspect is much more important to God which God expect to take place at all times…pray without ceasing…
You can take few references here:
Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
The LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land ” So he built an altar there to the LORD who had appeared to him.
So he built an altar there and called upon the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there; and there Isaac’s servants dug a well.
Moses built an altar and named it The LORD is My Banner;
When they came to the region of the Jordan which is in the land of Canaan, the sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh built an altar there by the Jordan, a large altar in appearance.
This is just to mention but a few. The next point will be:
TYPES OF ALTAR
- Permanent altar: This is an example of that which we have in our places of worship, our houses or family known as family altar, a place where a community meets to pray and many more. These are examples of permanent altar.
- Incidental altar or rolling altar: This is the altar you consciously or unconsciously created when ever there is a need for prayers. People do this several times but unknown to them. Whenever you pray in your office, your school, in a bus anywhere, you have just raised an altar to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. That is an example of a WALKING ALTAR. Then you will want to ask the next question:
WHY ARE YOU A WALKING ALTAR
I said in the introduction that God original intention is to reside in man, God does not reside in an object but want to possess man for His glory. In 11 Samuel 7:1-13, David desired to build a house for God, though God appreciated the gesture but quickly reminded David of where He wishes to occupy. Before the new testament, the spirit of God only come on and off on the people, but in the new testament God fulfilled His promise by pouring out His spirit upon man and make our body His temple. In verse 12-13 of 11 Samuel 7 “And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for MY NAME, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. God told David that a house can only be built for His NAME and not for Him. I will like you to take note of these accounts in these scriptures below:
The spirit of the Lord CAME UPON Jahaziel, just to make use of him at that moment and after departed
11 Chronicles 20:14
“Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation;”
In Act 4:1-8 but in verse 8, the bible made an account of what happened “Then Peter, FILLED with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,”
Taking the account of JAHAZIEL in 11 Chronicles20:14 whom the spirit just came upon ( this is just one of many such situations in the old testament) and the account of PETER in Acts 4:8, you will see the fulfilment of God’s plans for you to become a moving altar. Peter was filled with the holy ghost and he preached the gospel. The same holy ghost in him that healed the lame at the beautiful gate.
See what this scriptures says about you and God’s temple:
1 kings 8:27
” But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?”
Acts 17:24 – 25
“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;”
Act 7:47 – 51
“But Solomon built him an house.
Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
Hath not my hand made all these things?
Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.”
Building of million seaters capacity is not a sin, as a matter of fact, our God deserves the best from us but we should know that God does not reside or never intend to reside in a structure but man. What ever we build as a church or temple, it is to the NAME of the Lord and not where He lives or intend to live. You can be in that edifice and still go to hell, you can build that beautiful temple and still not make heaven, you can be in that well designed and decorated church and still be oppressed by the devil. It is not the building that brings the glory of God, it is the presence or evidence of God in the life of His people. God want you to build your life and consecrate your body as His temple. You can recall the account of what God did to the temple built by Solomon when Israelites disobeyed Him, God destroyed the temple to show to His people that what matters to Him is their life not the house they thought they built for Him. Jesus told the disciples in Matthew 24:1-8 that non of the stone of the temple shall be left on top of each other, they shall all be destroyed. This is another account to show you that what matters to God is your body and how much of His spirit you have inside of you.
Did you get any message from those scriptures above? Well don’t you worry, from here I want to show you why you are a walking altar:
WHY YOU ARE A WALKING ALTAR
God expect you and I to be an example of the ark that whenever we are found anywhere, His presence is guaranteed.
You are a walking altar for the following reasons:
- Because you are created in the image of God.
- Because God does not live in objects but lives in man
- From creation God have always desire to reside in man
- You are now a moving altar because you have become the
temple of God
You can confirm this from the following scriptures:
11 Corinthians 6:16
“And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” (when God dwell in you and walk in you, then you are a walking altar)
1 Corinthians 3:16
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
1 Corinthians 6:19
” What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”
All these pointed to the fact that you are a carrier of God by the holy ghost who is in you. Remember, holy ghost is the spirit of God pours out upon you and I.
HOW TO BE A WALKING ALTAR
Then how can you become a walking altar indeed, are you already a walking altar? Are you actually demonstrating the power of the holy spirit in your life? If not, these are what you need to do to really be exactly what God have created you to be from the beginning of creation.
- Give your life to Jesus, it is through Jesus the promise of the
holy ghost came to fulfillment. So the first step is to accept
Jesus as your Lord and saviour. If you are ready to give your
life to Jesus call on Him right now, ask Him to forgive you for
not following Him all this while, ask Him to write your name in
the book of life and be your Lord and saviour from today. or
