The dictionary explanation for an altar is a table in a Christian church, at which the bread and wine, are consecrated in communion services. It further goes and describes it as, A flat-topped block is used as the focus for a religious ritual. Especially for making sacrifices or offerings to a deity and another general description of a church altar is a raised structure or place that is used for sacrifice, worship, or prayer. There’s also a definition of Wiccan altar in Wikipedia which is a “raised structure or places used for worship or prayer”. Upon which a Wiccan practitioner places several symbolic and functional items to worship the God and Goddess, cast spells, and/or saying chants and prayers.
Raised in a Christian family, church altars were familiar from all the church services I attended. The respect given to it always caught my attention such as bowing before the altar as you pass it in the Catholic church. The ceremonies of breaking bread and wine, blessings, and prayers seem Divine and feel spiritual. I however have never gone further in search of a deeper understanding of altars until a recent church ceremony I attended, and the theme was deliverance through altars and prayers.
The priest did a summon on altars explaining it from a different perspective. He starts by saying that altars are any places used for sacrifice, worship, or prayers. That there exists many forms of altars and they all are powerful, their influences live for generations. He further explains that many altars are formed for good intentions but there are as many whose intentions may not be good. Some altars are used to cast spells and invoke destructive spirits or demons to destroy lives. Some altars may be speaking against one’s life hence a life of continuous struggle. An endless cycle of stagnation, financial difficulties, or any other troubles. The priest further said that one must especially dig deep into their bloodline and destroy any evil foundation that may have been erected for ages and act as contact points for demons to gain access into one’s life. All these are about generational curses.
When an altar is raised for a certain purpose good or bad, the powers remain true for the said period intended. For thousands of years, altars have been erected, bloodlines bound to the rituals. One thing we must bear in mind, the bloodlines we have today have traveled for thousands of years and crossed lands, seas, and tens of thousands of families. In between this journey, a lot may have happened hence a need to have an open mind on this topic. All these altars are secretly whispering and if any is speaking against one’s life it’s essential to break it. The good news is, any curse or bound may be broken and any victim set free.

This priest and his two friends looked well-versed and comfortable. They gave their short speech about evil altars raised before us and how to break them. They did their prayers and put their hands on us. Asked everyone to close their eyes. They prayed and we listened, some people received healing, especially the elderly ones. It lasted for about 30 minutes then the remainder of the service was done.
