The Altar Speaks Part 1 Eden to Bethel Message cover

30 Jul: The Altar Speaks – Part 1 From Eden to Bethel

The first time in the Bible that we can indirectly see even the hint or suggestion of an altar is in the scriptures of Genesis 3:21. In this passage we see the Lord having sacrificed animals for the clothes of His naked children. Adam and Eve sewed fig leaves together in an attempt to cover their shame. For the first time, their eyes were opened to know good and evil. The Lord demonstrates the need of more than a physical covering to erase their conscience of guilt and the shame of their disobedience.
