Repairing the Altar of the Lord

Text: 1 Kings 18:30 “And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.”

Introduction: That tiny heap of broken stones is the root of all the problems. Israel had turned her back on God. America is in the same condition as Israel was then. We are experiencing a drought today, spiritually. In our homes, our families and marriages, our schools, our churches, and our government.

I. The Significance of the Broken Altar

A. It Was The Root Of The Problem

B. It Was The Nation’s Calamity

1. The Source of Her Disaster – Famine

II. The Cause of the Broken Down Altar

A. Removing Prayer From Schools

B. Removing The Bible From Schools

C. Accepting Sin and Not Doing Anything About It

1. Abortion – Adultery – Alcoholism – Child Abuse

2. Homosexuality – Divorce – Drug Abuse – Gambling

3. Living Together Unmarried – Pornography – Suicide

4. Television & Movies - Violence

III. The Effects of the Broken Altars – No Rain or Blessings

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” Gal. 6:7

A. Anxiety and Worry – Death - Difficulties

B. Divorce – Doubt – Fear – Guilt - Loneliness

C. Violence – Lack of Peace – Lack of Love – Sickness

D. Suffering - Tribulations

IV. Restoration Must Take Place

“And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.” Jer. 24:7

A. Of The Family Altar

1. Prayer - A Family That Prays Together Stays Together

2. Repentance Must Take Place

a. Worldliness – Sin

b. Idolatry

3. Rededication

4. Revival

Conclusion: Those few stones lying there in unregarded confusion are a symbol of a forgotten God. They seem un-important. They remind us of a time long ago when we were closes to God that ever before. The Lord wants that again. Won’t you come back to Him this morning.

Illustration: A Pastor was talking to Lady in his church She said, "Pastor, I've lost my joy, I've lost my peace, and I want it back."
"Where did you lose it?" He asked.
"That has nothing to do with this," she replied. "Help me to get it back."
"But where did you lose it?"
"I don't want to talk about that."
But eventually she did talk about it. She lost it when she moved in with her boyfriend. That'll do it.
