In Numbers 23 Balaam raised altars in an attempt to curse Israel.  The altar of Baal in Gideon’s family which Gideon destroyed. (Judges 6:25-32).

Demonic altars go along with spiritual legal rights, vows, agreements and covenants. Satan is well acquitted with spiritual laws that even God himself binds himself to these laws (his word is his law). Today Christians lack huge knowledge and base everything on prayers, with bible reference to support their ignorance.  It’s very important we pray, but divine instructions and understanding spiritual laws can cause miraculous answer to prayers.

When Naaman came to Elisha, he instructed him to go and wash in the pool. This particular story is very important as it deals with generational issues. The reason why Elisha asked him to deep himself 7 times correlates to the fact that the diseases was in operation for 7 generations. Each deep represents one generation and that was why he saw no effect until he got to the 7th deep.  To ascertain these facts, when Gehazi misbehaved, Elisha’s curse on him confirms to the fact that this disease was a generational issue.

Many Christians are suffering generational curses ignorantly, as a result of dedication to evil altars at work in their life. Your fathers may have agreed with his gods to guard him and his children, this gives demons legal rights over you because when this happened you weren’t born again or born yet but are part of his children. Some forefathers worshiped idols, visited or invited spiritualists for one favor or the other and committed all manner of iniquities according to the instructions of their gods. 

Exodus 34:7 says, "Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting (punishing) the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation."

We can’t disregard Exodus 34:7. Some Christians refuse to accept these truths, backing up their reasons with scriptures.  Hold on, Psalm 11:3 says-When the foundations are faulty, what can the righteous do?"

Note: the word “righteous”.

Sadly, with a little effort, scriptural verses can be found that will 'prove' any and all points of view, provided one removes all the surrounding text which actually determines its meaning. I have seen with my eyes deliverance, were demons burst out of anger querying the minister if he was there when the fathers dedicated them to him. Demons understand their rights very well, even angels do. As you read, I will open your eyes to spiritual facts that no one can deny. Demons are behind every idol worshiped, and so Satan has the spiritual rights to afflict a Christian with a faulty foundation.

Lamentations 5:7 - “Our fathers sinned, and are no more; it is we who have borne their iniquities.”


  1. Altars have power to bless or curse (Numbers 23:1-30). Altars can and do speak for generations (Genesis 28:11-22).
  2. Altars stand as a memorial for those who raised them. (Genesis 17:15-21, Genesis 22:15-18, 1 Samuel 7:8-12).
  3. Altars can control destinies of people under its power. It’s a powerful force that can work for or against a person. ( I heard of a catholic priest who was next in line to be a chief priest of an idol, the deity behind the altar began to torment this man so he can pull his cassock and take up idol worship)
  4. Altars can speak on your behalf, either negatively and positively, in your absence or presence. Why? Because there is a deity behind the altar. (Revelation 16:7)
  5. Evil altars empower or propel generational curses. It gives demons access to your foundation. Bear in mind that no altar speaks without sacrifice, and it’s offered to demons which comes with covenants and some spiritual legal agreements. Vows are also made to demons which becomes spiritual legal documents for the enemy to torment families.
  6. Altars open unseen doors in the realm of the spirit. These are the highways for angelic traffic. As gates or portals. Elijah did this in 1 Kings 17:1; 18:1-45

Note: If you desire to overcome, then you must connect to greater altars of other great men of God. Some of them don’t sleep, offering sweet smelling incense all night long to God
