(Jdg 6:23-25 KJV) 23 “It’s all right,” the Lord replied. “Don’t be afraid! You shall not die.” 24 And Gideon built an altar there and named it “The Altar of Peace with Jehovah.” (The altar is still there in Ophrah in the land of the Abiezrites.) 25 That night the Lord told Gideon to hitch his father’s best ox to the family altar of Baal and pull it down, and to cut down the wooden idol of the goddess Asherah that stood nearby.
Gideon raised an altar of peace to the Lord, after his encouter with the God of peace. Isreal had abandoned the altar of God in their midst, to service the altar of Baal. Consequently, they suffered continually in the hands of the Midianites and the Amalekites for seven years. When the Lord decided to intervene, He visited Gideon and assigned him to rise against the enemies in battle. This encounter left Gideon trembling and shaking, thinking he will die, but Lord assured him that he shall not die.
Thereafter, Gideon raised an altar of peace unto the Lord. From that point forward, the altar of peace began its operation. The instruction of peace, the strategy for peace started flowing from God to Gideon. Through Gideon’s life and ministry, the Midianites and the Amalekites were defeated, and peace was restored to the land of Isreal. When the altar of peace begin to speak, every confusion and oppression cease in a man’s life. Today, we shall raise the altar of peace over the month of August 2022, establishing peace, over everything that concerns us in 2022, in Jesus’ name.
