Hebrews 13:9-10

King James Version

9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. 

For it is a good thing that the heart be established 

with grace; 

not with meats, 

that have been occupied therein.

10 We have an altar, 

whereof they have no right to eat 

which serve the tabernacle.

What does the Bible say about GOD's "altar"?

As first article for a perceived series of articles, the HOLY SPIRIT led me to these Book of Revelation verses.

Each set of verses is worthy of meditation, and further study.

Revelation 6:9-10

King James Version

9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, 

I saw under the altar the souls of them 

that were slain for the word of God, 

and for the testimony which they held:

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, 

How long, O Lord, holy and true, 

dost thou not judge and avenge our blood 

on them that dwell on the earth?

Revelation 8:1-6

King James Version

8 And when he had opened the seventh seal, 

there was silence in heaven 

about the space of half an hour.

2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; 

and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, 

having a golden censer; 

and there was given unto him much incense, 

that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints 

upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 And the smoke of the incense, 

which came with the prayers of the saints, 

ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

5 And the angel took the censer, 

and filled it with fire of the altar,

and cast it into the earth: 

and there were voices, and thunderings, 

and lightnings, and an earthquake.

6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets 

prepared themselves to sound.

Revelation 9:13-15

King James Version

13 And the sixth angel sounded, 

and I heard a voice 

from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, 

Loose the four angels which are bound 

in the great river Euphrates.

15 And the four angels were loosed, 

which were prepared for an hour, and a day, 

and a month, and a year, 

for to slay the third part of men.

Revelation 11:1-4

King James Version

11 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: 

and the angel stood, saying, 

Rise, and measure the temple of God, 

and the altar, 

and them that worship therein.

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, 

and measure it not; 

for it is given unto the Gentiles: 

and the holy city shall they tread under foot 

forty and two months.

3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, 

and they shall prophesy 

a thousand two hundred and threescore days, 

clothed in sackcloth.

4 These are the two olive trees, 

and the two candlesticks standing 

before the God of the earth.

Revelation 14:18-20

King James Version

18 And another angel came out from the altar, 

which had power over fire; 

and cried with a loud cry

to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, 

Thrust in thy sharp sickle, 

and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; 

for her grapes are fully ripe.

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, 

and gathered the vine of the earth, 

and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, 

and blood came out of the winepress, 

even unto the horse bridles, 

by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Revelation 16:7-9

King James Version

7 And I heard another out of the altar say, 

Even so, Lord God Almighty, 

true and righteous are thy judgments.

8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; 

and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

9 And men were scorched with great heat, 

and blasphemed the name of God, 

which hath power over these plagues: 

and they repented not to give him glory.
