(Jdg 13:19-20 ESV) “So Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering, and offered it on the rock to the LORD, to the one who works wonders, and Manoah and his wife were watching. And when the flame went up toward heaven from the altar, the angel of the LORD went up in the flame of the altar. Now Manoah and his wife were watching, and they fell on their faces to the ground.”
Manoah the father of Samon was one of the men, whose story is connected to the altar in the Bible. Manoah raised an altar, unto the God that works wonders. Manoah’s wife was barren for many years, but she received an angelic visitation, because the Lord has chosen, to birth the next deliverer of Israel through her. After their encounter with the angel of God, they decided to honour the God, who promised to give them a child.
Therefore, Manoah raised an altar unto the Lord, and offered the goat and the grain offering unto the Lord, who works wonders. The bible says, “the angel did wondrous things”. And went up in the flame of the altar. You can always expect wondrous things, where the altar of wonder is being serviced. Few months later, the woman who was tagged barren gave birth to a baby boy. However, the wonder did not end with the birth of the baby, it continues in the nation through the life of the child. Today, we shall be raising the altar of wonders over the month of September; let 2022 be studded with the wonders of God in our lives, in Jesus’ name.
